Question about Toshiba CX36H60 TV

1 Answer

Toshiba model Cx36H60

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.

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.

How do you turn on the tv without a remote cause I've lost my remote


In order to do that, your TV will need to have a dedicated power or On / Off button. It may be a symbol like "I / O". Most TV have a button like that, but yours may not. If it doesn't - you can pick up a new universal remote to work your TV for less than $20.

What you'll need is your TV's brand name (Sony, Magnavox, Toshiba, RCA, etc.) and if possible - the model number. Not many remotes require a model number - but it can't hurt to have it. Go to a store that sells universal remotes (Fry's Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc.) or eBay and either look for a universal remote that indicates it has the codes built in for your brand (and model) TV or a used on on eBay for your specific TV. When selecting a new remote, you pay extra for the number of devices it will operate. If you only need it for TV, than a one or two device remote will be all you need. If you want to stop using your DVD player remote and one for your stereo too, then you'll need a remote that can do 3 or more devices. Make sure that the remote will work for the brand and device. One that does Toshiba TVs may not do Toshiba DVD players. Checking the remote's web site can help you figure this out instead of standing in a store trying to figure it all out.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Hello, I purchased my Toshiba TV 27DF46 at a thrift store and it did not have a remote and I cannot figure out how to get my av ports to work. I have tried changing the channel manually and using my...

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.

Need ESA code to program our Zenith Universal remote 425

I own a One-for-All universal remote (model URC-4220) , and my booklet says the setup code for an ESA TV ( without a built-in DVD or VCR) is 0171 or 0812. I can not guarantee these numbers will work with your remote, but it is worth a try.
The alternative choice, is to purchase the same remote that I have, which cost less than 10 dollars at Walmart.

Remote stopped working

A universal remote will work with almost any TV. I woud just buy one from Walmart. They should be under 10 bucks. If it doesn't work return it for a refund.


If your TV is less than 10 or 12 years old, it is quite a good bet it will work with a universal remote.
