Take apart the remote and remove the rubber button pad.look at the back of the buttons,the carbon has worn off or got full of oil.take a q tip with alcohol and clean the buttons.if they are worn off,take a small piece of aluminum foil and glue it to the button .it is small 1/8 inch diameter or so.if you look at the pc board,you will see 2 sets of lines for each button that do not touch.looks like a small maze.what happens when you touch the button is that the carbon connects the 2 lines.eventually alot of force is needed to make contact work,but it completely wears out the button contact pad surface.Gluing a piece of foil to the button will make it work.i have done it a hundred times on remotes with no replacement...
cheers ed

The power on/off button on the remote control works but the channel & volume buttons no longer work


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience.

Hello
It will be best for you to buy its original remote control. Universal remotes may also work with it, but some functions may not work properly. You can buy it from the Authorised Service Center for Toshiba at your town. Just give them the exact model number of you TV set [which can be noted at its back side]. They will give you the exact original one.

RCA RCR 311B model universal remote have setup codes for Toshiba. You may also try this remote. The codes are:
1047, 1071, 1103, 1105, 1108, 1159, 1163, 1178, 1188, 1190, 1191, 1196, 1211
I strongly advice you to buy its original one. OK.

7) using the channel down button change the left parameter until 06 (vertical size)
8) whith the volume + or volume - adjust the screen size.
9) when your tv is OK back to parameter 00 using the channel up button.

My remote wont operate my sony TV volume


Here you go. This will work with most all universal remote controls. If you don't have the code do the following:
Automatic Programming
With automatic programming, the remote control tests all the codes available on the Code List and assigns the correct code for the selected device. Although this method can be more time-consuming, it eliminates the need to look up codes and enter them manually.

1. Turn off the device with which you want to use the remote control.

2. Press and hold the corresponding button on the remote control
(TV, VCR, SAT, DVD, CAB or AUD) until POWER INDICATOR illuminates. It should take a couple of seconds for the light to remain solid. The remote control is in programming mode.

3. Press and release power button. The POWER INDICATOR flashes once and stays on indicating the unit is in Power Scan mode.

4. Press CHANNEL up or CHANNEL down repeatedly until the device turns on.

5. When the device turns on, press OK to store the code.

Note:
• To exit without storing the code, press BACK.
• T he unit will search for the next code or the previous code if you press
CHANNEL up or CHANNEL down after the device turns on. (go slow you need to press OK when the TV turns on) if you mess up turn TV off and start over.
6. Press any other button. If the device responds, the remote control has been programmed. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 2-5.

Model ws-55711, remote doesn't work but I don't believe it is the remote control, can only change station up or down manually, cannot adjust volume or others manually...


If you can change channels with remote then TV is OK because it has only one infra red receiver (remote receiver) to catch remote signals.
So TV remote seems bad as it works on channel buttons only.
Here is an easy test for remote, watch remote front through any digital camera or even cellular phone camera will work and press channel button on remote, you will see blinking LED at front of remote while watching it through camera. Now press other buttons of remote and I'm sure that LED wont blink.
