Question about Toshiba 32AF43 32" TV

1 Answer

Remote sensor not working

Lately the remote sensor on my Toshiba 32AF43 has not been responding on an intermittent basis but the problem is increasing in frequency. I checked the remote (replaced the batteries) and it still works for my Toshiba DVD player. I even bought a new remote and the same problem persists. Now it's at the point where my TV basically doesn't respond to the remote and when it does it's only for a few seconds before it stops working again. Any help would be GREAT!

    Thanks electech1. If that's the case is this something that can be done via a home repair service call? This TV is extremely heavy and wouldn't be easy getting out the door.

    I checked into repairs for this problem and the cost isn't really worth it.

    Anyone know if you can buy an "external remote" device? Something you connect to your TV that replaces the existing remote system?

    I have this tv, and I tried a universal remote, but since it used the sensor still it didn't work. I happen to have comcast on the way, and the cable box they have can at least change the channels. If it starts bugging me too much I might get the remote for the Xbox360 and see if that works, but most likely I'm going to get a new tv. My toshiba also has a horrible hum that is not fixable, and I got this tv used for $75 so it's not worth it. This tv has a nice picture, but it's way too heavy and annoying.

    you can try and call and see if they can work on it there at your home but most likely they will need to have it in the shop and the part most likely will have to be ordered , i would see if they can pick it up so you don't have to take it in , because it is a big tv they may come and pick it up , they will just charge about $50 more for the tech to come out to look at it then probably have to take it in to the shop , then they will bring it back after the repair

My toshiba 65in will not respond to my remote

The infrared sensor to your TV might be bad. It should be replaced. It is an easy to get part, and is cheap to buy from any electronic spare part shops. To access and replace it, you have to pull out the front panel PCB. In fact, you have to open the TV to replace it. The component will look somewhat like this.

Tv not responding to remote works sometimes

hello, usually if the remot control is ok, then the infrared receptor need to be replaced, he is placed near the stand by light.
in a rare case the problem is at the 5v voltage that goes to the receptor. more rare is the possibility
that something is wrong at the microprocessor circuit.
i hope it was helpful!! Let me know if you need further guidance

Look at the IR emmiter "eye" on your remote thru your Cell phone camera. You can tell if the remote is constantly emitting a signal.

Toshiba model Cx36H60

Yes, I have been seeing a lot of those Toshiba IR receivers bad lately. Replacing it with a new one should take care of your remote problems. If you have never replaced small parts on PC boards then have a qualified tech handle it for you.
