Question about Toshiba 30HF85 30" TV
After a lightning strike or surge hit the tv/cable boxes outside my home, my Toshiba TV remote control (CT-877) no longer works with my TV (purchased 8/07). The infrared ray (or whatever it is) connection between the TV and remote is not working. I must turn the TV on manually, and then use my cable remote to search channels, etc. Other than the remote problem, the TV works fine. Do you think the problem is with the TV or the remote? I have inserted new batteries and reprogrammed the remote with no luck. What would cause this problem and how do I repair it? Oh, and I have replaced the batteries and reprogrammed it, but still it doesn't work. Thank you very much for your help.
If its caused by a power surge, then the problem is internal to the tv, not the remote, unless of course the remote is plugged into the ac.

I had the same problem with my remote...over time it slowly stopped working. (sorry for poor terminology) I noticed that one of the battery terminals was corroded and that the metal connecting the battery to the board was completely gone. I simply swapped this out with one from another remote and now its working fine. Seems the only issue is that the battery was not connected.
I hope this helps.
