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

TV isn't responding to the remote

Hello, sorry to hear that you having issues with your remote or TV.
First, comes the most common questions but its worth a shot, Did you replace the batteries?
Second, You could try and clean the infrared eye on the tv with a moist cloth to make sure the window on it is not dirty or blocked from the line of sight of the remote.
Also check you batteries once more, also take the batteries out of the remote and push on the buttons as one ore more could be stuck causing the remote to malfunction.
Worse cases are bad remote or bad control board in the TV witch cause it not to respond to the remote. First check the remote very well. You could also replace the remote at or purchase a universal remote as well.
Only if the new remotes do not work you would call it a bad control board in the tv witch could cost around $90 to replace if there are part available.
Most cases would be the remotes batteries or connectors itself or batteries incorrectly installed.
Thanks for using

I'm having trouble with my 27AF43 toshiba remote. I've changed batteries it will only raise and lower the volume. Can I buy a universal remote but I don't have the programming code for the tv.


Sounds like your RC unit is on the way out! Get on the net, punch in your make & model of TV to find remote controls. There's bound to be a generic remote will operate all functions as opposed to some universal types of control.

I am convinced you will find one - possibly even an original!

Hope this helps in some way.

Remote control SENSOR not working

This could be a fault with your remote control. It will need checking by a Television Technician.

You can clean the remote control yourself if you are careful. You will need a spray can of Servisol IPA 170.
  • Carefully split the remote control unit along the seal between the top and bottom of the unit.
  • Carefully notice how you then dismantle the inner components. (I lay the components out in the order I take them out of the unit).
  • In a logical order spray, clean and dry each part.
  • When you have cleaned all the components, reassemble in their reverse order of the way you dismantled the unit.
  • Fit new batteries and test the remote control.
If this fails to solve the problem, you will have to take the remote control to a Television Technician for testing.

If the remote is found to be beyond repair, visit who may be able to supply you with a replacement remote control. I trust this information will be of help to you.

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!

No response from remote

Check whether the remote control is working properly or not by using remote checker. Even if it is the universal remote control you have to set the code for the particular model. Otherwise it will not work.

Toshiba TV Remote Control not working

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.
