Question about Toshiba 32A30 32" TV
My remote controls to my Toshiba TV stopped working yesterday. I have three different remotes to the TV, Once in a while I may get it to actually change the channel ,or turn the volume up or down. But it will only do it ramdomly and then it wont do it again. Ive reprogrammed my remotes, and changed the batteries in them, So I dont think thats the problem. Any Suggestions would be appreciated. Thank You.
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.

I unplugged my wt-42315, counted to 60, plugged it back in, and voila, the TV responded to all my remote controls again.

I have the exact same problem. Remote would work intermittenly and now has quick all together. I am unable to get the TV to work off of any universal remote. We aren't crazy, the eye has gone bad. I am calling a repair man. I'll let you know how much it costs :)

Have you tried cleaning the contact pad? Just open the remote, and you will find the contact pad. it is like a rubber sheet with contact terminals matching the locations of the various buttons.Just take a clean cloth and clean the contact points. Re-assemble the remote, put in new batteries, and reprogram the remote. it should work.

The best and least agravating and less expensive is to buy a remote thats made for that set. Go to http://www.remotes.com amd they will have what you need. Good Luck

Just read these posts, took my batteries out of remote to take it all apart, then realised the battery springs were corroded, I scraped them with a knife, put batteries back in and it worked again. Good luck

I have a 40" Toshiba, it's just over a year old, the remote worked fine for about a month, then it stopped controlling the TV, nothing worked. I had to do everything manually for almost a year. I was thinking, I did have it delived, maybe a connection came loose, so I decided to take the unit apart. I check continuity with my meter, all circuits were fine. I did unplug the two connections to the sensor and in the Tv unit itself. I can't say for sure but maybe it did somekind of reset,or something was loose, because after that the remote worked!!! I hope it stays this way for a long time. It took a little time taking the Tv apart but it was worth it to get the remote working again.
I hope this post helps others with the same problem.

Make sure there is not tv/dvd switch un the side of the remote. Check it is on tv.
