Ir remote not working

hi everyone
i recently brought a ir remote for arduino (B)
but when doing any projects the ir remote do not send any hex number but its working.
what to do?

Tell us what the device is , how it’s connected , code you’ve used ...

irremote black
gnd,5v,11

#include <IRremote.h>

int RECV_PIN = 11;

const char type ='B';// W for white, B for black. Must keep single quotes like 'B' or 'W'
const boolean PCB = 1;// if receiver is PCB set to 1, if not set to 0. See video for details

IRrecv irrecv(RECV_PIN);

Isn’t this the code for receiving an IR signal and decoding it ? Therefore it sends nothing

well i tried some more codes and it did not work out

Are you saying, looking at your code, that you have two working remote control units, but the program cannot interpret the IR codes either of these units send ?

Question 1. From where did you get the hex codes example 0x8C22657B, // 7
Question 2. Why not run a simple sketch which simply prints out the codes it receives ?

Libraries usually have some example code , run that .

If this is an IR receiver (is it ?) then it’s physically unable to send data .

i used different codes for decoding too
but since it was copy and paste i had to delete and paste new codes on the same file

Is the sketch reporting "Key unknown" ?

yep it was

hi
i tried this code

#include <IRremote.h> //including infrared remote header file
int RECV_PIN = 7; // the pin where you connect the output pin of IR sensor
IRrecv irrecv(RECV_PIN);
decode_results results;
void setup()
{
Serial.begin(9600);
irrecv.enableIRIn();
}
void loop() {

if (irrecv.decode(&results))// Returns 0 if no data ready, 1 if data ready.
{
int readResults = results.value;// Results of decoding are stored in result.value
Serial.println(" ");
Serial.print("Code: ");
Serial.println(results.value); //prints the value a a button press
Serial.println(" ");
irrecv.resume(); // Restart the ISR state machine and Receive the next value
}
}

after i open the serial monitor it starts to show numbers randomly while im not pressing any button

What board did they write this sketch for? On an Arduino UNO, Nano, Mega... the 16-bit 'unsigned int' type can't hold those 32-bit numbers.

What version number of the IRremote library do you have installed?

Hi,
What are you using as the IR reciever?
Can you post a copy of your circuit please?
Can you please post picture(s) of your project so we can see your component layout?

How do you know the IR remote is working?

Thanks.. Tom... :grinning: :+1: :coffee: :australia:

For uno

The latest one

This also looks wrong. Try uint32_t instead of int.
The sketches you’ve posted have different receive pins.

I'm using the normal or receiver as shown in the circuit diagram
GitHub - Arduino-IRremote/Arduino-IRremote: Infrared remote library for Arduino: send and receive infrared signals with multiple protocols the link I downloaded the lib

figure-5-circuit2-1_Mq1KTNLjak

It looks like that board has an RGB LED without series resistors.

Well I just used the connection for the receiver and not for the RGB led.(I do not not have any RGB led too :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:)
