This is not a solution for this problem, but I have the same problem with my Toshiba. I have proven that the problem is with the TV not with the remotes. I have purchased two Toshiba remotes and they do the same thing, a generic remote does the same thing and the remote from my cable company also acts the same way. Can someone tell me (us) if there is an easy way to change the remote module on the TV. Thanks!!

Do the same remotes function normally ion other Toshiba TVs? Why don't you chech this out first? There is no possibility of the TV causing the above symptom. I can only think that you are using expired batteries.

My Roady XT turns itself off after 2 hours. Why does this happen?


There can be several causes for this, few of which you can do anything about. However, a few things to try.

1) Replace the batteries on your remote control.
2) Try resetting the logic functions on your tv by unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in.
3) Try covering up the infra-red receptor on the front of your TV to see if you're getting unwanted signals from the receptor. taping a piece of foil over that area is perfect. If it doesn't stop after doing these two things you'll probably need to take it to a shop.
4) If this does stop it, then look for unexpected signal sources. Have you added a remote control extender? Added a new device to your audio-video system? Changed to a new remote?

Good luck with your problem...I hope you can work it out.

Remote won't work


Using a small test meter, check that you have 1.5v on each battery. Sounds like faulty batteries.
