Remote Won't Work! Problem with TV remote receptor?

Hi- My remote wouldn't work on my TV. I changed the batteries and everything, and it still wouldn't work. I even purchased a replacement remote (exact same model as the old remote) and it STILL doesn't work. Now my only guess is that there's something wrong with the tv. What can I do?

    The remote control doesn't work. It's not the remote -- it's brand new (bought replacement from the manufacturer) and the batteries are new (checked with a voltmeter). The problem is, I programmed the V-Chip so it blocks nearly all channels (my 4 year old is curious), and without the remote, I can't disable the V-Chip. So, the TV is completely unusable! I've tried putting the remote right up against the sensor. I've tried replaceing he remote (again) with a universal remote, but I can't get that universal remote to lock in to the TV. Help please!

Try unplugging the set for 12 to 24 hours. if that does not work, theres a problem in the remote sensor circuit or the microprocessor circuit. its going to need a pro to fix it as it meeds trouble shooting.

scription: Customer is complaining the remote has stopped functioning.
Cause: Remote in wrong mode, or weak batteries, or TV logic scramble.
Resolution: Follow the steps below in the order presented until you locate the source of the problem:

1. First verify your remote is in “TV” mode. Depending on the model of remote the mode is selected via a: slide switch on the side, a push button, or a series of push buttons. *Hint, if user is able to adjust the volume but not the power or channel then the remote is in the wrong mode.
2. Perform a “reset” of the remote by removing batteries, then press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. This will erase any programming in the remote.
3. Replace the remote’s batteries with fresh(new) ones.
4. Try unplugging the TV from the AC power for 5 minutes.
If the above mentioned steps do not restore remote operation it is possible the problem lies with the TV itself. If another Toshiba remote (or TV) is available try to verify the TV's remote functionality (or the remote's functionality) before ordering a replacement remote.
**Most "remote not working" complaints are due to operational error or batteries. Please do not order the remote control on speculation.

I have the same problem with my TV (the same model), the remote will not work. However, if you take the remote and place it directly in front of the remote sensor, and angle it to the right a little bit, it picks up the remotes signal. I think the sensor in the front panel just needs to be adjusted. I'm trying to gain access to the front panel where the buttons and remote sensor are, but I'm unable to pop it off. Any ideas on how to take it off without breaking it? It's only plastic.

There is something blocking the receptor on the main unit.
Remove any obstructions and clean the area in front of the receptor.
The remote is too far from the receiver or at too extreme of an angle.
Move closer to the receiver (within 23 feet) or change the angle (within 30 degrees) to the receiver.
A fluorescent or other bright light is shining on the receptor on the main unit.
Turn off the light or shield the receptor.

Check the display for a key or lock symbol, then follow the instructions in the device's user manual to turn off the keylock or lockout feature.
Either the remote or the receptor on the device is not functioning.
Use an Intraed Sensor to see if the remote is sending a signal.
If the remote is sending a signal, it used to control that device, and no other solution works, you should have a service center look at the device and remote to determine the problem and if it can be fixed.
If the remote is not sending a signal and you have replaced the batteries, you will need to repair or replace the remote, depending on cost.

Remote doesn't work new batteries and tried different remote still not working


hello, usually if the remot control is ok, then the infrared receptor need to be replaced, he is placed near the stand by light.
in a rare case the problem is at the 5v voltage that goes to the receptor. more rare is the possibility
that something is wrong at the microprocessor circuit.

i hope it was helpful!! Let me know if you need further guidance

Remote does not work. I changed batteries. Nothing. New universal remote does not work either. Any way to do a reset of any sort?


Hello, you need to make sure what is broken, the remote control or the TV. To check the integrity of the remote control, you need to broadcast from the remote control while he aimed at the video camera. If you see a flicker of light through the camera it shows the integrity of the remote control. In this case the infrared receptor need to be replaced, he is placed near the stand by light.in a rare case the problem is at the 5v voltage that goes to the receptor. more rare is the possibility that something is wrong at the microprocessor circuit. . If the remote control out of order, can be opened carefully by a thin screwdriver, usually the causes to the error are loose components or contacts that are supposed to weld back into the board.

i hope it was helpful!! Let me know if you need further guidance

My tv turns off by itself all the time


There can be several causes for this, few of which you can do anything about. However, a few things to try.

1) Replace the batteries on your remote control.
2) Try resetting the logic functions on your tv by unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in.
3) Try covering up the infra-red receptor on the front of your TV to see if you're getting unwanted signals from the receptor. taping a piece of foil over that area is perfect. If it doesn't stop after doing these two things you'll probably need to take it to a shop.
4) If this does stop it, then look for unexpected signal sources. Have you added a remote control extender? Added a new device to your audio-video system? Changed to a new remote?

Good luck with your problem...I hope you can work it out.
