I bought a replacement remote for Toshiba TV and it was the same model number CT-90325 same as the original. but it won't operate the TV, does it have to be programmed to the TV somehow?

Sounds like the manufacturer did an upgrade. You can look up the remote control codes for that TV. Turn the TV power on. Then using the codes you found set each one into the remote you have and check the functioning by trying to turn the TV off. If you are unable to see instructions for setting the codes into your new remote, or if they weren't supplied by the seller, you'll have to find it's manual online and follow those instructions. It could be that Toshiba used the same control model for more than one TV set model. Often just putting in batteries will work but when it doesn't you have to treat the remote as a universal remote. If you can't use the primary unit setting to work you can try to set it up as an"AUX" unit as you would do for a second TV.

How do i program tv aND DIRECT TV BOX FROM SCRATCH?

You need to turn on your television set.
  • On your DirecTV remote, press the "TV" button once.
  • Now, press and hold the "Setup" button until the "TV" light goes off.
  • Enter "991" on your remote control, using the numeric keypad. The "TV" light on the remote should blink twice.
  • Aim your remote at the television and slowly alternate between pressing "TV and "Power" on your remote, until the television set turns off. Once it turns off, press "Setup" on your remote control to lock in the code.
  • To search for codes for other devices and program them into your remote, repeat Steps 1 to 5, but use the appropriate key for your device instead of "TV."

    Power button has to be pushed 5 or 6 time before TV will turn on.

    Hello; I don't know if you are using the power button on the remote or the TV. If it's the remote button you are using, try the one on the set. If the set button turns it on 1st try, you have a bad remote. These buttons do wear out. If the set takes 5 to 6 tries on either, you likely have a bad main board in the set. John

    After turning on Samsung TV with Logitech 890, the tv does not right away. I hear the tv trying to turn on but it takes about 30 seconds to do so.emote

    This may not be a remote control problem. try turning on the tv directly from the tv and see if it takes longer than normal to power on. Sounds like a problem with the tv.

    Sony TV power and volume not working

    Since remote does not work, try taking out batt and turning on by set. See if still turns up. It could be that the up button is jammed inside set. Does everything else works? See if you can go to menu and turn speakers off, this will allow you to work on set and not worry about noise.
