Question about Toshiba 32AF43 32" TV

1 Answer

Remote problems The TV remote does not work, even with fresh batteries; the "multi-brand remote" supplied by the Cable company does not work either. So I rearrange my room, and the TV is without power for a few hours; when it gets plugged in, the remote works again, for a day or so, then stops. SO, if I REALLY want to use the remote, I have to unplug the TV for an hour or two, and the remote will work, for a little while. What on earth is going on? (The cable remote works the same way, so it has to be with the TV; i.e. if I unplug the TV, then when it gets plugged back in, either the tTV or CATV remote will work...for a while.) Thanks

Re: Remote problems

It is possible that your tv IR circuit is the problem could be that a cap needs to posted by you saying that when you plug in the tv the remote works, that means voltage charge up the cap and the tv works with the remtoe but as soon as you switch off the tv the cap discharge the stored voltage so you will have to plug in the tv for the cap to charge,and in order for the remote to activate the tv.that cap can be found just near the IR diode.good luck.

Remote doesnt control tv

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Clean the contacts inside the battery compartment. If rust or dust obstruct the proper contact, the remote won't work. Clean these contacts before you replace the batteries. Check this link to know about how to check the remote controls. If the infrared sensor inside the TV has damaged, the TV won't accept any remote control signals, even though the remote control is good.

Remote works sometime but not always

1. replace with fresh alkyline batteries.
2. If you have fluorescent lights, they will interfere with the remote.
3. Turn OFF lights, remote will work. Turn ON lights, the remote may not work well.

The "code" depends on the Remote brand/model.
Different maufacturers of remote control units don't use the same code numbers (there is no standard remote code for any TV).

Hope this helps!

How do we code a remote for a magnvox 27

Is it Comcast? With our cable box came an instruction booklet with codes for different brands. We tried two or three before finding the right one.

I can't find the instruction booklet we had, but you might find one on your cable company's website.

I changed the batteries in my phillips universal remote and when I did it would not work. I have a magnavox tv but I do not have the code or know the steps to fix it

You shouldn't have to do anything after changing the batteries. Philips and Magnavox are the same brand, so the Philips univeral control should work your TV without programming it. Check the batteries and make sure your new ones are in facing the right direction. Also be sure the new batteries are actually good. I've fixed remotes for people by just changing the batteries again, even though the replacements were fresh out of the package. Also, did the old batteries leak in the remote? The battery contacts may have corrosion on them. There's also the chance the TV's remote sensor is at fault. If you can, try the remote with another Magnavox TV or program it for another device and see if it's working, or try another remote with your TV. If you need programming instructions for your remote, you can usually find them on the manufacturer's website.

Want to use only the cable remote, can't find the code

I recently bought a used LCT2060 that had no remote. I figured my comcast cable remote would work without a problem but it didn't. So 3 universal remotes later I found my solution...a radio shack2_bing.gif universal gamer remote. It controls up to 5 components plus your xbox360, playstation and pc. The price on sale was a mere 12.97, not bad if you ask me. Hope this helped. The code that worked for the Akai2_bing.gif was 11676. Take care...

Zenith B27A11Z 27" TV, can't get into menu, original remote gone

Most universal or multi-brand remotes will control a TV's basic functions, but almost none will support advanced functions like menus. If the TV doesn't have a front panel menu button, the best solution is to buy a universal remote of the same brand as the TV. If you get a Zenith universal remote, it should have a menu button that will work with the TV.

No response from remote

Check whether the remote control is working properly or not by using remote checker. Even if it is the universal remote control you have to set the code for the particular model. Otherwise it will not work.
