Question about Toshiba MD13N3 13 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Remote control issues

I have searched the internet looking for a solution to a problem that seems to plague more than one consumer. Remote works erratically for some time until it quits all together. I think others as well as I have concluded that the remote itself is not the problem. So the problem has to reside in the ir sensor on the tv itself. So far in my quest to find an answer I have come up blank. Sure I have seen some experts address the problem but not one has done so with the authority of real knowledge. Guessing does not get us closer to the problem. So if there is any experts out there that feel they have a legitimate fix, by all means shoot the works. As I said earlier, the problem is affecting many Toshiba TV/DVD combo's. Common problems in like equipment usually has a common fix.

    My remote stopped working. I can change channels, etc by pressing buttons on the set itself. Put new batteries in the remote twice with no result. Checked the remote as instructed by www.replacementremotes.com and the remote seems to be working.

Yes it is a quessing game. If we experts do not have the set in front of us to trouble shoot, but I will explain the process. First off to work on any tv set, your going to need a schematic diagram or should have one, or it will be a crapshoot. Next set up your osilliscope and multimeter. First check the B+ going to the IR sensor. If its at 9 to 15 volts, and is clean without distortion, Im thinking that is ok, but check the manual to see what it is suppose to be. Once the B+ is confermed good. Place the scope probe to the data output on the IR sensor while pressing a remote funtion. If the date is clean looking and is present then the IR sensor is good. If it is not good or noisy, replace the IR sensor. In the event its there, trace the data signal with the assistance of the schematic diagram, to the microprocessor, through all the jumpers and plugs and componets, like coupling capacitors or resistors, as I have found bad solder connections on the route to the microprocessor. If the same data signal is on the input of the microprocessor remote input, that is on the data output on the IR sensor, then replace the micro. This way of troubleshooting, has in the past, fixed every remote problem I have encountered with a remote intermittant, or no remote operation. Good Luck

The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.

My rca remote just stopped working and can't seem to find the problem I switched the batteries to see if that was the issue and it wasn't need help


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. Surf the site with patience.

Hi ; i vave the Univ remote but on the sanyo tv ltd i couldnt use


You didn't supply enough information about the URC-20D1F or the Sanyo device. I am assuming the URC is an RCA branded device - but I can't seem to locate that model number. I don't know what an "LTD Sanyo" is - TV, VCR., ??

Regardless - RCA is also known as Thompson Consumer Electronics. They have additional information for RCA, GE and Proscan branded remote control units. Have a look at the link below - there are some Sanyo codes that may work for your device.
