The IR sensor is actually built into the Power Button assembly.
I have never heard of one going bad but the thing to do would be to get the whole
Assembly like attached pic and plug into your mainboard and see if it works before you
tear the front off your case.
If you are lazy you could just get the assembly and let it hang out of case until you
get in the mood (if ever) to tear the front off,
"Yes I have a house full of Samsung Parts"
"Yes I live alone"
