My remote isn't working and I bought a new remote and it still doesn't work, so it has to be the electric eye on the TV. Can the electric eye be replaced or is there some way for me to get it fixed. Thank You Pauline Young

Re: Remote won't work
Is the remote an original or a replacement?? If its an original then yes the remote sensor could be defective. The proper way to troubleshoot this is with a oscilliscope and to trace the data line from the sensor to the microprocessor IC. If theres no data output from the sensor then the sensors bad. If there is a siignal and you trace it all the way down the line to where you lose it as it could also be a jumper or plug connection where you loose the signal. Now these sets are dangerous to work on if your not an experienced tech,you should seek a expert to assist you in this repair, as they hold thousands of volts inside them even when the sets turned off and unplugged. SO BE CAREFULL> GOOD LUCK

If you are certain that your remote is defective, consider buying a GE universal remote as a replacement. The instructions that come with the replacement remote will tell you how to get it working with your TV
Check the infrared emission from the remote control. If it is OK, the infrared sensor inside the TV is faulty. To get more details about how to check a remote control, visit the site named 'Electro-help'. You can search for it either by Google or yahoo.

Just buy one universal remote control, which have these setup codes. Brand isn't a matter. You can get this detail, by the code list, the remote control will have.
Hello The remote sensor inside the circuit board of your TV is faulty. It is the component that receives the infrared signals of the remote control. If this component go faulty, no remote control will go with the TV. This component can be located on the front panel board of the TV just behind the infrared sensor window at the front. You have to open your TV to locate this component. It is a three terminal component, look brownish black in colour. The sample picture of it has attached here. It is very cheap to buy, and can be bought from most of the electronic sparepart shops at your town. If you have a concept of soldering and resoldering, you can replace this component yourself at home OK.
Hello, sorry to hear that you having issues with your remote or TV.
First, comes the most common questions but its worth a shot, Did you replace the batteries?
Second, You could try and clean the infrared eye on the tv with a moist cloth to make sure the window on it is not dirty or blocked from the line of sight of the remote.
Also check you batteries once more, also take the batteries out of the remote and push on the buttons as one ore more could be stuck causing the remote to malfunction.
Worse cases are bad remote or bad control board in the TV witch cause it not to respond to the remote. First check the remote very well. You could also replace the remote at www.remotes.com or purchase a universal remote as well.
Only if the new remotes do not work you would call it a bad control board in the tv witch could cost around $90 to replace if there are part available.
Most cases would be the remotes batteries or connectors itself or batteries incorrectly installed.
Thanks for using Fixya.com
The tv has a infared remote eye located at the front panel. It is possible that the remote eye sensor has gone bad. You could try cleaning the remote eye lens. There might be debris that got inside the remote eye housing and is blocking the sensor. You could also try installing fresh batteries in the remote.
I have been seeing a lot of Toshiba remote "eyes" (the infra-red receiver inside the TV) fail recently. If several known good remotes cannot control the TV then the IR receiver will have to be replaced. If you have no experience soldering and unsoldering PC boards then have a qualified tech handle it for you.
