Remote stopped working, Replaced batteries then purchased a universal remote ($10.00) and then a remote specifically sold to replace the original ($25.00). Remote will work for a bit and then sometimes after tv is on for as short as 10 minutes to as long as 45 will stop working (changing channels, turning up volume). After waiting from 10 minutes to having to shut tv off the remote will begin to work again. I believe (uneducated) that their is something wrong with sensor.

Re: Toshiba model Cx36H60
Yes, I have been seeing a lot of those Toshiba IR receivers bad lately. Replacing it with a new one should take care of your remote problems. If you have never replaced small parts on PC boards then have a qualified tech handle it for you.

If your ORIGINAL remote stopped working , check batteries, contacts, etc. you even might seek service but take note: oriiginal remote has no "codes". It's unique and specific for your MODEL. Universal controls might cover many features but they are never as complete as original and need code input for each model / brand
There are also many universal remotes that will work. Just make sure to research and make sure you select a model that has codes for combination TV/VCR units. Many manuals and code lists are available online from their manufacturer. There are some remotes that do not handle combination units.
There are several different options to solve your problem. You should be able to program your cable box remote to replace many (but probably not all) of the functions of the Toshiba TV remote that you're missing. Read the user manual that came with your cable box remote to find out how to program it to control different types of components. It's not very difficult and that would be your least expensive option. Another suggestion is to buy a "universal replacement remote" that are sold in many electronics stores. Once you program those universal remotes, they will perform most/many of the functions of the original (Toshiba) manufacturer's remote. A "universal replacement remote" can cost anywhere from $20 to well over $100 depending on how many electronic components you want to control. My best suggestion would be to buy a replacement remote that was specifically made for your Toshiba model 27DF46 TV. There are many companies on the Internet which sell those remotes specifically made for your TV. The cost is usually between $25 - $35. One last inexpensive option would be if you already have any other Toshiba components (like a Toshiba DVD player), in many cases, the remotes are nearly identical and will provide most or all of the same functions. I would start by trying whichever option makes the most sense for your particular situation. Good luck.
you are going to have to try a new universal remote because that one is not capable of programming to your tv. not all universals will work. trial and error. your best option sense you need to purchase a new remote is to go to www.replacementremotes.com and search my your TV model number and purchase the original equipment manufactured remote for your tv. Good news you wont have to program it either. and it will work your menu functions.
NOT A SOLUTION, however my remote stopped working a couple months ago. I subsequently tried several universal remotes - none of these worked. An educated guess might be that the problem is NOT with the remote control unit, but rather something inside the set itself. This might also explain why the MW24FM1 you bought "didn't come with a remote".
