Question about Toshiba CZ36T31 36" TV
My Toshiba CZ36T31 will not respond to remote control at all. It does not seem to be the remote controller, since the tv controller also operates a Toshiba VCR and that works fine on the vcr. The vcr controller also works and controls the tv, but is not doing so now. Hence, it looks like the infrared receiver on the tv is defective unless there is an "on/off" for the remote. Is there such a switch and where is it located? Thanks, KC
Finally hod this fixed. Toshiba gave me the names of 3 authorized repair shops. They all wanted between $150 - $200 to come to the house and do the repair. They cited replacing "the processor" etc.
But my brother-in-law had talked with a chinese man in a mall and we spoke to him. He said probably no need to replace anything. If he came to the house and fixed it with no parts it would be $80. If he couldn't fix it it would be $15 to cover the cost of the gas.
So he came the same day, in the evening. Turns out it was a cold solder problem with the diode that feeds power to the IR sensor. Took him 1/2 hour from the time he came in the front door, fixed it, and left. Just goes to show you what old time service and understanding can do. Most repair techs today only know how to replace boards not to really trouble shoot for the obvious.
