Remote control SENSOR not working

Remote control functions on other Toshiba sets. The TV works well, but only the on-set buttons will control it. Nothing is obstructing the sensor and it lights up when the set is manually turned on.

Can someone post a response to this problem that actually answers the question? I have the exact! same problem, and as w2ith the original poster, the REMOTE is fine. The original poster's remote works fine on other toshiba TV's, and I can get my mom's remote (the toshiba TV is hers) remote to work with the Sony VCR in my room. Even though i can't get the toshiba remote to work with the panasonic VCR that's hooked up to my mom's toshiba (it must be using a code that's not listed in the toshiba TV's manual), the remote DOES work on MY VCR. So I'm guessing our problem is with the receiver in the TV itself. Is that hard to replace? could we do it yourselves? Or do we have to take it into a shop?

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 www.semenedis.com who may be able to supply you with a replacement remote control. I trust this information will be of help to you.

Toshiba tv 32a43 changes input by itself


I will try to explain this: I first presume there is a physical button on the set for the input options.

I have seen this a lot:
Not the plastic button on the set but the tiny push switch behind it.
These are called momentary switches as only should function when the plastic button is pressed and contacts the momentary switch.

They go bad, and will internally engage without be touched.

The simple way to prove/disprove this is to open the set and get at that switch which usually is soldered into a small circuit board--two pins for the switch and maybe two more tabs for mounting.

If individual switches unsolder and REMOVE THE INPUT SWITCH (the one under the plastic button on the set)

Set should now operate normally and remote should have same feature on it. If it works you do not have to replace anything.

FYI: the reason the remote may not be working is the buttons on the set have PRIORITY over the remote.

Both the remote and the buttons go to the same area inside the set but buttons are #1 in line.

There is a quick test you can do to figure out if the IR transmitter on the remote is broken or if the TV's IR sensor is at fault. Using a digital camera (cell phone works too) set up a picture of your remote's IR transmitter. DO NOT TAKE A PICTURE. Simply look at the sensor through the camera's screen. Now while looking at the screen press a few buttons on the remote. If you (through the camera's screen) see a red light coming from the remote, then the remote is fine. As far as getting it repaired, you can look for a TV repair shop in your local yellow pages. Call a few and ask for a quote.

Need the code to set the technika remote to ma toshiba telly


Maybe you could try the auto-set. Found this using google:
Auto code search

1. switch on the TV and select a channel eg. Bbc1 on the TV itself
2. press the appropriate device button eg. TV
3. press the green SET button for approx 5 seconds until the red light comes on.
4. release the green SET button and point the remote at the device to be controlled, the remote will emit a test signal about every 2 seconds.
5. when the TV switches itself off briefly press the green SET button to store the code found.
6. when the red light goes out the search is ended.
7. try out the remote if it works follow the same steps to set it to other devices eg. DVD. If it does not work follow the steps again.
cover other remote sensors on other devices when setting the remote.

Toshiba CF32H50-no control from remote


Could be the remote does not operate on the correct frequency, but also may be the IR reciever sensor inside the TV, best bet is to bring your remote to a pawn shop and try it on a set there (they sell older model sets look till you find one like yours). once you determine the remote is OK, check the IR sensor for bad solder connection or replace it by soldering a new one in. Also some Toshibas develop micro CPU issue (the computer IC), another thing you can try is cleaning the main board control area with electrical cleaner residue can load down the control circuits but then the buttons would also malfunction.

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 Won't Work! Problem with TV remote receptor?


Try unplugging the set for 12 to 24 hours. if that does not work, theres a problem in the remote sensor circuit or the microprocessor circuit. its going to need a pro to fix it as it meeds trouble shooting.
