    Thanks.....Toshiba must have been looking to make extra money down the road on Remote replacements....who makes a tv w/o a menu button on TV itself anyways....The TV is in a spare bedroom that is rarely used for guest - not paying $20 for a replacement remote for a TV that's never used. Oh well....

No you need the remote ! and even most universals will not do that function for you either!
You can order an orignal replacment remote from www.remotes.com and that will let you access all of the tvs functions!
I hope I was of big help!

Thank You!

Access menu without remote on Toshiba 27AF44


You can follow the option of searching the internet for any of several suppliers of OEM replacement remotes. The problem with universal remotes is that not all functions of the OEM remote are replicated.

I have a Toshiba 27AF45 and a RC64 remote control which is not what comes with the TV. It works ok but I cannot figure out how to turn on the closed captioning feature. When I enable the menu I do not see...


Unfortunately, TVs don't always work with universal remotes. The original remote probably had a button to control the captions, and there may not be any other way to access those settings. If you can't find caption control settings using the on-screen menu, you are out of luck. The only options then are to try another brand or model of universal remote that may have a button which will work, or to locate a replacement original remote control.

Cant get the remote to work for menu options just started setting it up already programed to my direct tv remote now nothing is working or either remote t.v or direct tv remote


To diagnose a remote control problem follow these steps.

1) unplug the TV power cord, count to five and plug it back in. (reboot)
2) try to power on with ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER remote.

if that works- your TV and original remote are fine.

if that does not work:
4) try to power on with buttons on the TV itself- if it works- check your remote batteries and try remote again.

Direct TV and Dish Network remotes will ONLY operate SIMPLE function of your TV such as power, volume, input.
They will NOT access your TV menu.

Cannot access channel 73 on TV2


If you are unable to access the TV menu using the buttons on the TV itself it is possible you can with the TV2 remote if it still controls the volume etc. for this TV. If it doe not you will need to find a code for your set in the manual for the receiver or you can go to the following link to find that info as well.http://tech.dishnetwork.com/departmental_content/TechPortal/content/tech/receiver/625.shtml
Assuming you have control of the volume still press the small TV button on the top left of the remote. Now press the menu button and you may be able to access the TV's menu. If so you need to run a channel scan/auto program the TV. You may need to use the buttons on the TV still to maneuver through the menu.
If you are still unable to access the menu you may need to purchase a universal to access the menu.

No control and the picture is too dark


Not sure what you mean by no control?

Brightness settings on any TV made since the early to mid 90's (besides tiny cheap B&W TVs) will have the settings in an on-screen menu. Sometimes the menu is accessible through buttons on the TV itself, but always accessible through the remote control. If your TV does not have the ability to get to the settings menu from the TV controls itself, you will need the original (or compatible) remote control for the set, there is no other option.

It could also be that the set is just dying; it's an older set, and certainly would be a possibility.

Toshiba MD20FP3 Combo does not turn on. Help!


Not unless you have taken the time to learn all the safety issues concerning the HI voltage safety facts, in the repair of electronics? It sounds like your tv has a problem in the sweep/power supply circuits, and since these sets have NO user serviceable parts< its best too leave these types of repairs to a certified electronic technician. Good Luck
