Fixed it.
Power button was sticking on TV and also found gunk on IR receiver window next to power button. Unplugged TV, cleaned both, sprayed power buttun with contact cleaner to free up. Let dry and powered up. Works fine. Sometimes its the simple stuff.

You'll have to contact Toshiba's part distributor in order to purchase a replacement remote. The company is Fox International and their number is 800-321-6993.

SOURCE: I have a Toshiba TV model 36A43 that won't power

It sounds like you have a switch problem at the front panel of the set. If a switch gets stuck internally the micro is trying to process the command and won't respond to any other commands. The only way to find out is to go into the set and desolder all the manual switches and see if the remote will work the set. It has a seperate detector for the remote. Thanks for using fixya. Good luck

Toshiba tv 40rv525u has started to change channels


My TV 40RV525U changing channels, menus itself for few months ( I use antenna).
my son tried to stop the channel scrolling by enter weird number into the channel to stop it scrolling such as 555, 777..
later, it turn on off by itself and unable to hold on a channel
I call Toshiba customer service and they ask money $25 for troubleshooting but I denied since I do not want to waste money and time.

Now, I found how to fix it myself.

In my case, something was wrong with the signal comes from the button control on the left side of the TV.
========================
What I did
========================
unplug the power cord.
Remove back cover.
Look into the motherboard ( biggest green at the center).

First, I disconnect a connector on the motherboard come from the IR board that receive the wireless signal control ( meaning the remote is disable).
I turn on the TV, press on Menu button on the TV side. Menu is still scrolling.

I turn off TV, disconnect power cord and connect the IR connector back to the motherboard.
I then disconnect the nearby connector that comes from the side control buttons.

Turn on the TV by remote, press menu button on the remote to check. The menu stays.

DONE.

I use electric tape to seal off the connector and let it hanging there.
Close the TV back panel

I have been watching TV for 3 nights without menus/channels scrolling.
NO AVAILABLE red message when watching DVD is no longer existed.

Hope this help someone else.

Toshiba 51H94 wont power. The light blinks green 3 times/sec


This problem was resolved by doing the following: turned power off to circuit; unplugged tv; removed back "grate" and vacuumed out dust; vacumed fan on right back side; spun fan manually a bit; jiggled fan connection near power cord; plugged back in and it worked. I suppose there was a loose fan connection, and the TV wouldn't power on without a functioning fan.

Remote control range


It could be due to a few reasons, but we'll start with the easiest and the obvious. First I would check your batteries. Change them with some new ones. If that's not the problem, I would clean the IR transmitter on the remote and the IR receiver on the tv. Anything past that may require purchasing a replacement remote.
