    My Toshiba and Tivo remotes have stopped responding to Toshiba 32af43 after working fine for years. Cannot even bring up the Toshiba menu.

    What is a RF LED? Can it be fixed.

Dear Mr.yeye,
There seems to be a problem with the IR LED of your television. solder the connections if any of them is cut. Also there can be loose connections. its better to contact the retailer from whom you purchased this tv

My Toshiba TV, Model 57HX81 quit responding to any remote control. How do we repair that or how much will it cost to have it serviced?

Does the rest of the TV work fine? If so, the problem is likely with the remote control. Have you replaced the batteries and made sure they are installed correctly? Did batteries recently leak in the remote to where the new batteries may not be making good contact with the metal springs? Has the remote been dropped a lot? If so, a solder joint may be broken for the IR transmitter.

If you have a universal remote that can be programmed to the TV model, that should make it easy to confirm if the issue is the remote or the TV.

62HM15 Toshiba DLP TV won't respond to remote or control panel

Blinking is a trouble code. Try unpluging for a longer time then hold power button in when pluging back in to try and reset.

I am NOT too keen with 'universal remotes' because often the CODES listed are not accurate so your item (in this case a TV) may never respond without the proper code entered...

Some remotes offer a FISH method where you manually "step" from one code to the next... no fun but SOMETIMES your TV will suddenly respond again!

Now the IR SENSORS are rather rugged and seldom 'burnout'... but the board it mounts on is another story.

Your Service Manual can be found at the link below but the print is so tiny I was unable to locate the board with your IR SENSOR quickly... time is a issue and the link is a start!

One BAD point is that I found no USED boards for your model on eBay... not good.

Remote control not responding to tv

You need to program the remote to work with the TV. And I hate to point you this way, but I've looked around for the manual on this remote, and can't find it, so, go to the Toshiba website and email Customer service that you have lost your manual for the remote. See if they will email you one. I bet they will.

Remote controls will intermittently work

Hey, I would definitely recommend trying all the options mentioned above however sometimes it might never work correctly again (the remote control that is) and it might've been a defective remote control to begin with. Anyways, I had a few friends that have been in similar situations, and usually they won't even bother and went on the internet to find a replacement remote control. What they have done and probably what I would do if I was in that situation is head on over to a replacement remote control website like and look through their directories for that specific model Toshiba 32HFX72, and they should have what you are looking for in stock!
