Question about Toshiba 27AF41 27" TV
The ir is not working at all, tryed 3 different remote's and tv is not reacting. Is there a way to reset or repair the ir in the tv?
Since the problem is common on two remotes, the source of your misery has to be inside your set, not with the remote.
The receiver in the set may not be positioned as it should be since it is rare to have either end go 'a little bad.' They generally will fail totally instead.
Any shop that services TVs will have a simple pen-like detector that will tell you if the remote is putting out enough signal to work as it should.
If your set has ever been repaired, the main board may not be sitting in the slots that act as supports.
You might try to hold the remote in several different positions; holding it below the IR window and pointing it upward, the same for each side and then above the window. If it seems to respond better from one or the other angle, then the receiver is not sitting square behind the window.

Just found this bit of info on a CZ36T31 elsewhere and am posting it in case it helps...
"...and an intermittent problem responding to the
remote. I had a service person check it out and was going to have it
repaired because it still looks and sounds very good. The part was
available at a cost of about $85-90 plus about $40 for the service.
However, the service person didn't want to come back again for
another service call because I was too far and it was not profitable
for him, so the part was never replaced.
The remote control is OK. It is the receiving module in the TV that
has a low voltage problem. If anyone is electronically handy it
probably is an easy fix to install a new module or it can be use
without the remote with the buttons on the TV."

A lot of times it is the remote sensor in the set. These are good sets so I would have it checked out. Could be fairly cheap. Thanks for using fixya.

Replace the ir sensor on the tv front control panel board. part cost is about 12$. A service call fom a major player will cost @175+tax to do that.
