Question about Toshiba 36AF53 36" TV

2 Answers

Remote will not control TV (but will control other devices)

I have a Toshiba 36AF53; it is only a little over 3 years old. Today, the remote stopped controlling the TV; however, it will still control the VCR & DVD player. Therefore, I know that (a) the remote works (b) the batteries work The TV does work if I use the manual controls. Therefore, I know the TV works. So, it looks like the remote receiver component is broken. However, this happened one other time. That time, I unplugged the TV from AC mains for about a minute, then plugged it back in - this fixed the issue. I tried the same thing this time, with no luck. Could this problem be something else? (a) Can I fix this myself without a schematic (I have an EE degree), or can I get a schematic somewhere? If so, where can I find out the mfg & part number of the component(s) needed? (b) Is it cost effective to get this fixed by a repair man?

    I've tried another programmable remote that has always worked - it does not work either.

    Out of curiosity, what in the remote could be borken, if it still controls other devices?

Sometimes the led reciever for the tv goes out could need to be replaced if the remote works on other items

Your remote control could still be the problem. Try another Toshiba remote on your TV or try your remote on another Toshiba and see what happens. Don't ever look past the easy repairs.

    Yes it could still be faulty but, since you said universal remotes don't work either then you are probably looking at a remote issue on the TV as you said.

    I have an LG TV "soundmax plus" AV STEREO/26 System, the remote control is damaged and cant find one, I bought a UNIVERSAL REMOTE CONTROL and tried to fix the problem but I cannot make it.What is...


    Universal remotes have 3, 4, and 5 digit codes depending on the age of the devices to be controlled. 3 digit codes can only control devices made before year 2000. 4 digit codes can do upto 2007, 6 digit codes can do upto the date of the remote manufacture date. Your universal remote is too old for your TV.

    Toshiba TV Remote Control not working


    I have been seeing a lot of Toshiba remote "eyes" (the infra-red receiver inside the TV) fail recently. If several known good remotes cannot control the TV then the IR receiver will have to be replaced. If you have no experience soldering and unsoldering PC boards then have a qualified tech handle it for you.
