Question about Toshiba MV19N2 19 in. TV/VCR Combo

1 Answer

Remote won't work

I read a previous question where it was suggested to use a cell phone camera to test the beam on the TV remote sensor. How is that done? What if the TV sensor is not working? We've tried several replacement remotes as well as changing the batteries in our original; nothing works. Thanks.

    I'm having the same problem with my MV19N2 combo. Has there been problems with the remote sensor in this model? I have bought many remotes nothing works used all the codes. Is there a specific code for this model we can put into a universal remote so the TV/VCR will work.I really don't care if the VCR work just so I can access the volume control.My remote Model number is VC-N2S it's light grey in color if that helps

    Thank You

    Tried new remote original directly from Toshiba and that didn't work either. Opened up the TV to find the sensor, but it's solder on. Seems to be okay, and not loose. Not sure where I can get a replacement part (sensor reader off the TV board)? Or should I open up the remote? The remote doesn't have any flashing red flashes, but neither did the new one I got from Toshiba... Any idea?

How often does the infared sensor go bad on the tv. I have had my tv about 7 years?


Not very often, if ever. Here's a way to test the remote for operation. Turn on the camera on your cell phone. Aim the remote at the camera and hold down any button on the remote. If you see a flickering light coming from the remote, the control is working perfectly. Now hold down the button that doesn't work. If the light flickers, the TV sensor is bad. If the light doesn't work on the suspected button, then the remote is toast, but repairable.

Remote Control won't start TV


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. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.

My Mitsubishi projection TV will not produce audio or video


Hi,
Two things are involved to cause that problem, tv remote control and remote sensor in tv.
Upon verification of remote working, it would be confirm that remote sensor in tv is defective and need to be replaced.
Remote control sends infra red light signal to tv and we can not see that light with naked-eye, so need digital camera or cell phone camera to see it by watching remote front through camera, press any keys on remote, if you see infra red light is blinking in remote front that means remote is working and remote sensor in tv will be replaced.
If no light blinking on pressing remote buttons confirm that this remote is defective and buy new remote.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Remote sensor does not work on my 27" crt panasonic tv. Is it worth fixing? How much will it cost to fix?(approx.)


test your remote first by placeing in front of a cell phone camera and press any button on the remote and look for a blinking light on the cell phones lcd screen (same as taking a picture) if you the blinking light then your infrared remote sensor is bad inside the tv. part cost about 10 dollars.

REMOTE FOR JVC C-13811 TV WON'T WORK....WE THINK ITS THE 4 DIGIT CODE, BUT WE CAN'T GET TO WHERE WE NEED TO RESET IT...WHAT CAN WE DO?


As far as I am aware, the code is only for preventing rated channel viewing. Can the TV be turned on/off with the remote? If not, either the remote or the TV is defective. Check battery, check TV/DVD/SAT switch on the remote's side or front, is there any switch in the battery compartment? If the battery is good and the remote is functional, you may check it by holding it towards the your cell phone camera while pressing any remote button. You should see a bulb lights when any key is pressed. Our naked eye cannot see it but the camera can. To make sure the test works, use another remote. If the JVC remote test fails with good battery, change the remote. If the test shows good, then the TV's remote sensor could be defective.

Intermitten remote sensor issue


Evidently 2 good remotes point at the problem being the remote sensor on the TV itself. I have about 4 remotes I can adjust volume w/ including the remote that came w/ my samsung. The TV exhibits the same behavior w/ all of them.

Per the samsung site, the "test" for this (remote vs sensor) is to us a digital camera, (including the kind that's on most cell phones) to "see" if the remote lights up. Just point it at the camera/phone, and press any button. You should see a bright flashing light on the camera/phone's LCD screen. If not, REJOICE! All you need to replace is the remote or batteries in it. If you do see the light, good luck if you're not in warranty. I've been unable to find any procedures for replacing this kind of item.

CT-90157 Won't work at all ???


YOUR REMOTE IS A TRANSMITER WHICH TRANSMITS AN INFRA-RED BEAM WHICH CANNOT BE SEEN WITH THE NAKED EYE THEREFORE USE YOU CAMERA PHONE TO TEST IF IT IS TRANSMITING A BEAM POINT REMOTE TO CAMERA PHONE AND PRESS ANY BUTTON ON THE REMOTE. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THE INFRA-RED BEAM FLASHING ON THE SCREEN OF THE CAMERA PHONE. IF THERE IS A BEAM IT MEANS YOUR DEVICE THAT CAME WITH YOUR REMOTE IS FAULTY. IF THERE IS NO BEAM YOUR REMOTE IS DEFINETLY FAULTY. IF YOU FIND THAT YOUR REMOTE IS TRULY FAULTY USING THE PROCESS MENTIONED ABOVE THE POSSIBLE PARTS TO REPLACE WITHIN THE REMOTE WILL BE THE L.E.D, QUARTZ455MHZ PS PLEASE CHECK YOUR BATTERIES AGAIN.
