Remote Sensor Repair

Do anyone know how to replace the remote sensor on the 36A41? I am not sure if I can pop off the cover on the front of the TV to install. I don't want to break it if that is not how to get to it. I tried everything from replacing the batteries, cleaning the cover to the sensor. The cable repair man told me that it was more than likely the sensor on the TV.

Re: Remote Sensor Repair

Before condemming the infared remote receiver, make sure that you have tried and original toshiba remote control. Sometimes universals do not always work. If you do have to replace the (IRR), the main circuit board or the button assembly must be removed. The part is soldered in and has only three wires. The approximate cost of the part is around $20. You local service center would probably charge you $80 to $100 for the repair. If you have already tried a number of universals, the chances are that the(IRR is defective). Also try the code search on the universal remote sometimes this will work. Scrivitron

Toshiba 36A41 pops when I change the channel and I can not adjust color, brightness, etc,and remote does not turn off tv.

The symptoms you describe is the main processor controller is about to fail, when that happens the tv will eventually become unuseable. if the set is more than 5 to 10 years old you will be further ahead to replace the set.
