Question about Toshiba 57H93 57" Rear Projection HDTV

Open Question

Remote control commands not being read

Remote control commands from the remote that came from the 57H93 and a generic one has stopped working.  The tv has been gradually not been picking up or reading the remotes for longer intervals over the last couple of months.  The ability to read the remotes came back after a couple of days, but it did not come back this time.  I have replaced the batteries on both remotes and they turn on the dvd player, stereo, vcr, etc. with no problems.  Looks like the remotes are good and something is wrong with the tv.  I have removed the screen before to clean out the spiders and spiderwebs.  There is a board behind the 3 projection tubes that appears to be the remote control sensor board.  Has anyone replaced one of those before?  Does anyone know its part number and where I can get one?  Would like to try to replace the board if it isn't too much money.  Calling someone to service the tv will be expensive.  Does anyone have the service manual and/or schematic for a Toshiba 57H93?  Thanks!

yeah,it's very easy.

pull out the bottom part(where the speakers are) - they are held with plastic hooks on the inside, they are =on the left and right side and a few at the top. just pull one end and the rest will come off easily.

remove a couple of screws holding the buttons assembly and the bottom of the screen.

slide the screen carefully upwards and when you reach about half way then it will come off.

behold...the sensor is infront of you, it's a small pcb with a light sensor on it. (if you see sensors at the very top or side...they are probably focus sensors)

sure it's not the remote?

SOURCE: Toshiba 43H71 - remote sensor not working

The sensor is not the only fault that can cause the remote control to not work. The sensor is only one part of the circuits involved.

Between the sensor, there may be buffer amplifier stage, and then there is the main uPC.

What we do is send a remote IR data signal to the sensor, and on the circuit board in the set I follow the data signal along its path using a scope in reference to the service diagrams to see where the data loss is.

Personaly, I would not blindly buy a new sensor based on a guess without doing the proper tests.

You need to program the remote to work with the TV. And I hate to point you this way, but I've looked around for the manual on this remote, and can't find it, so, go to the Toshiba website and email Customer service that you have lost your manual for the remote. See if they will email you one. I bet they will.

My verizon fios remote control stop to control the 65" cinema series toshiba tv.the remote seems to be ok.The oryginal tv remote doesnt control it also.I think that there is something wron with the tv...

Yes, most likely the sensor is at fault - more precisely it's connections to the motherboard are iffy. You must take the back cover off the tv and reseat them. While you are there check their soldering points - with age they tend to melt and get loose.

TV is not responding to the remote control.

The set may have defaulted to a front panel lockout. To defeat that on the front of the set hold down the MENU button for 15 seconds and see if it will then power up. I know that doesn't solve the problem with the remote but one step atta time. These sets are prone to leaky switches on the control panel and when that happens the micro cannot accept two different commands at the same time. That could be why the remote is not working.

No control of WS-65511

The following solution has been posted in another forum ( and it fixed my remote problem:

"'s possible that one of the front panel buttons is "stuck" or shorted, and this could cause the TV to ignore commands from the front panel or remote. But this should also cause the Power command to be ignored, too. You might try pulling off the front panel and disconnecting the front panel buttons and then see if the remote works."
