Question about Toshiba 32A41 32" TV

1 Answer

Need to replace infared eye on 36AF41 Toshiba TV

Do I need to remove the large cover from the back of the TV to access the infared eye, or does the thin silver cover,( housing), for the infared eye, channel, and volume controls snap or pop off? That would seem to be the easiest access point. Thank you I F sensor went out on mine. Apparently the unit is about ten bucks, but labor is $60 and house call is $65. Can this be done by an ordinary guy with a bit of skills and if so where can the part and instructions be found?

Yes, the back needs to be removed and the main board slides out to gain access to the IR sensor. Usually, the sensor itself is fine, the connections can get broken. Try resoldering the 3 pins for the sensor first. That alone may resolve the problem.

Keep us posted.

Toshiba 36AF41 36" TV no red color

Go to your menu/settings from the remote (or buttons on the tv, if applicable). And find the color or saturation settings, play around with those. If that doesn't work, your tv is dead, get a new one.
