The most likely problem is worn contacts in the remote itself unless the batteries are weak or not making good contact in the remote. You could try a inexpensive programmable remote or order another original Toshiba remote part number 23306263 (I found one listed on for $28.96 plus shipping). Sometimes remotes get liquid spilled on them and some of it will seep inside and cause problems later like the one you are experiencing.

I have an old remote that works for a VCR and I did have it working for the TV but one day someone was playing with buttons and it stopped working. I was wondering how to program my Toshiba vc 260 remote...

Try the following procedure:

1. Make sure there are working batteries in the Toshiba remote control.
2. Turn on your television set, DVD player or other device that you want to control with the Toshiba remote.
3. Find the "Recall" or "Setup" button on the Toshiba remote control. After you find it, press and hold down that button until the lights on the remote control turn on and remain lit.
4. Point the Toshiba remote at the device you turned on in Step 2 and press the button on the remote for that device.
5. Begin pressing the "Power" button on the Toshiba remote. Continue doing this until you have turned the device off using the Toshiba remote. Once it shuts off, press "Enter" on the Toshiba remote. The remote will then be programmed.

I am not familiar with the Time Warner remote, but Tivo remotes require pressing "tv power" and the "Tivo" button at the same time to program them.
Maybe you are pressing one a little ahead of the other.

Our daughter gave us a Toshiba TV and remote. We plug in the TV and hook up the cable,and try to turn on the TV but nothing happens. We can turn on the TV with the TV button,and it works fine,but we would...

If the remote is the original Toshiba remote, it obviously should work the TV. Have you checked to make sure it has good batteries? Also, if old batteries leaked in it at any time there may be corrosion on the battery contacts keeping it from working. Make sure the metal contacts look shiny, not crusty and corroded.

If the remote still doesn't work there are two possibilities. One is that the remote is just bad. You can get a universal remote, set it for Toshiba and try it. It will at least control power, channel and volume functions. If the universal remote doesn't work, the remote sensor in the TV would be the probable cause. Like any other part, they can sometimes fail.

Remote will not control TV (but will control other devices)

Your remote control could still be the problem. Try another Toshiba remote on your TV or try your remote on another Toshiba and see what happens. Don't ever look past the easy repairs.

TV auto shut off-power indicator light blinking-won't turn back on

You could have gotten an electrical surge that put your set into a shutdown condition and unplugging the set and letting the Microprocessor reset will fix this problem if it dosent blow out the main power regulator as you still or might I say have a regulator IC problem. IF THIS PROBLEM HAPPENS AGAIN MORE THEN A FEW TIMES WITHIN A SMALL TIME FRAME I WOULD HAVE THE SET LOOKED AT BEFORE THE REGULAOR BLOWS SOMETHING OUT!!!!
