Question about Toshiba 47TL515U 47 3D LCD TV

1 Answer

The controls on the TV and from the remote will not work if they are not used for 20 - 30 minutes. It is not simply a remote issue because the controls on the front TV panel will also not respond. So, we have to turn the TV off and back on again to be able to use it. However, after you press the power button on the remote or on the TV to turn the TV off it takes about 20 seconds for the TV to finally respond and turn off. This issue is not limited to a single source. It occurs when we are watching DirecTV, Netflix, videos from USB, over the network, etc. Has anyone else encountered this issue or have any fixes?

I have seen this before--loss of control is usually a microprocessor in the set "confused" and the first thing to do is unplug the set from power for a while and also if used any box providing signal

If that does not help it is a serious issue with the microprocessor in the set.

SOURCE: Toshiba LCD TV AV500E Turns off then on every 5 minutes

It sounds to me that the Main board is causing the problem. But I would get in touch with Toshiba for a warranty repair. It has a one year parts and labor warranty. It makes it a lot cheaper for the pocket.
Good Luck,

yes call the tech and have the power board replaced. In future have the TV plugged into an anti surge board to protect it ( and you from expensive repair.) I suspect you will need a new power supply fitted

Try unpluggung it for 30 minutes and try again. If it is still bad, the power supply will be the first place to check.

Remote want work on tv


Hi,

Make sure that you're using the supplied Remote (RMY-906) to control the TV. If so, perform the steps given below to resolve the issue.

  • Make sure that you're using batteries which are having enough charge. Try using fresh alkaline batteries.
  • Do not use rechargeable batteries in the Remote.
  • Ensure that the batteries are inserted correctly with the correct terminals by checking the + and - symbol in the battery compartment.
  • Make sure that the Remote is set to operate with the correct functions. On the remote control, press the TV FUNCTION button to re-check this.
  • Press the POWER button and other buttons to test the operation.
  • Make sure that none of the buttons are jammed in the remote control.
  • Ensure that the remote control is being used no closer than 3 feet and no further than 10 feet away from the unit. Try using the remote control at varying distances from the TV.
  • When using the remote control, be sure to point it directly at the remote sensor on the device.
  • Remove any obstacles that may be in the path between the remote control and the device.
  • Ensure the remote sensor of the device is not exposed to direct sunlight or bright florescent lights, as this can interfere with the sensors ability to receive signals from the remote control.
  • Try resetting the Remote. To reset the Remote. remove the batteries from the remote control, press every button twice, and then reinstall the batteries.
  • Try resetting the TV also to check the operation. To reset the TV, disconnect the power cord for a short period of time (approximately 1 minute), then reconnect the power cord and power on the television.


If the remote control is able to operate other devices (such as cable box, DVD Player or satellite receiver), then the issue may be with the IR sensor on the TV. If this is the case then the TV that will require service. Otherwise, the remote control may need replaced.


Good Luck!

Programme remote to work with sony tv


To program your DISH Network remote to your Sony TV you will simply- press and hold the TV Mode button until all the other mode button back lights illuminate, then release.

-Now while the TV mode button is blinking please enter in the remote code 500 which is the remote code for your Sony TV after entering 500 then press the pound (#) key.

-After pressing the # key on the DISH Network remote, the TV mode button should blink 3 times and then turn off completely. This will mean the programming of the DISH remote to your TV has been completed successfully. While still in TV mode try any of the functions on the remote, such as turning the volume up or down on your TV or attempting to press the power button.

-The DISH Network remote should now be programmed to control your TV.

-If the remote code 500 doesn't program the DISH Network remote successfully you can also try each of the following using the same procedures, 000, 590, 640, 502, 002, or 567.

I hope this resolved the issue for you! Please feel free to contact us if you need any additional assistance.

My dish network remote has an issue it take me 10 mins to get the remote to change chanels i have to keep pressing the button for allmost 10 minutes before it well work the remote has fresh batteries


drackul69, I am unsure what type of TV you have, but some LCD TV's generate heat while they power on and a remote on IR will not work until the TV warms which can take 5-20 minutes. If you have a LCD TV that may be a cause for the problem. If so a UHF remote for TV1 will fix that.

NEED SONY CODES FOR PHILLIPS REMOTE


Universal Remote Control Simple Setup

* Point it at a TV set and press the Mute/Power button. (Mute button if TV is already on, or Power button if the TV hasnt already been turned on)

* Keep pointing it at the TV until the TV turns on or muted, most TVs respond in about 5 seconds, the most is up to 20 seconds. (Other universal television remote you find in stores take minutes to program and enter long confusing codes)

* Once the TV is muted or turns on, simply let go of button and you have total control. You can use the remote as if you had the original remote, and responds instantly. ENJOY YOUR FREEDOM of choices with our remote!
Most remote controls require minutes of programming a universal remote code into each television while you read the confusing instruction manual.

If your tv has inputs for many devices you can connect them. You need to simply change the tv input SOURCE to whatever #/type of input you want to view from.

You can use an y remote if programmed properly- that is another issue. programming the remote to control that deviovce but first see if it works right.

if the brighthouse remote can control the tv, change the input or source to whatever the dvd is in, other wise try the tv remote.

make it simple first, then you can try getting the one remote to control it IF it can.

my cable remote cannot control all my devices but does the tv.

EchoStar 5.3IR from Dish Network not responding to Samsung tv


It seems the new, larger tvs these days put out too much light and it interferres with the remote signal. Simply put a post-it note or tape a piece of paper over the lights on the receiver and you have an affordable and instant fix. This isn't a good looking fix and I would be upset if the set were in a living room. Luckily ours is in the family room downstairs.
