Question about Toshiba 36A43 36" TV
I recently had my cable box switched to a new model....tech couldn't get the remote for the tv to operate? so it was only able to function with the universal remote from the cable company....shortly afterwards I went to turn it off, and had been doing so manually on the TV since the switch but used the Universal Remote to turn off and it did so but a flash occured and since then I have been unable to get the picture on the TV...I was going to dump the TV but before I do so, I wanted to investigate a bit further to see if possible a fuse was blown, which is what my instincts tell me but I am not savy with the components of the TV. Does this TV even have a fuse? IF so where are they located so that I am check? If a fuse, what type of fuse and are they fairly easy to find at a local hardware store or is it something that I have to go to an electronics repair store to purchase a specific fuse? HELP!! I have been without a TV for a month & half...funds these days are scarse and not in a position to purchase a new TV...Is there any HOpe? My neighbor says that he will come over to assist me but asked that I inquire about the TV & possible problems & lead me in the direction to correct the issue. My name is Roseanne 760-322-7896 in Palm Springs email address: roseannadanna@earthlinknet my cable service network is Time Warner....any advise/assistance you can offer to me is greatly appreciated! THANK YOU!

yes and this is a common problem! First lets check out the obvious/ when theis fault starts to happen take out the batteries out of the remote control. If the problem stops then you need a new remote. If the proplem persist the remote sensor assy is bad in the tv set. Ive never heard a cable box causeing a motherboard to act up?? Wait arent mother boards in computers?? lol. believe me you need to tell the tv msn to replace the rmote sensor. Now in an extremly rare cases the microprocessor was causing the problem BUT highly unlikly. Good Luck

SOURCE: Remote signals
If you tryed a universal remote , that remote should have at least worked the volume and the channels selector. It could be whats called a remote sensor assy thats mounted up toward the front of the set on the inside between the buttons. Its not really a user changeable part as there is soldering involved to replace the sensor. Realisticly, the correct way to trouble-shoot this set is to look at the data or logic line coming out of the remote sensor with an osilliscope to see the data and if it goes all the way to the microprocessor IC. If it does and no remote operation happens then the Micro's bad. Theres way to much Hi-voltage in these sets for a handi-person to tinker with, and its advised that a tech take a look at this set for you . Sorry I couldnbt be of more assistance. Good Luck

I had the same problem with my remote...over time it slowly stopped working. (sorry for poor terminology) I noticed that one of the battery terminals was corroded and that the metal connecting the battery to the board was completely gone. I simply swapped this out with one from another remote and now its working fine. Seems the only issue is that the battery was not connected.
I hope this helps.

Tips for a great answer:
Mitsubishi TV troubleshooting
Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.
Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:
12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected
