Toshiba TV Remote Control not working

My remote controls to my Toshiba TV stopped working yesterday. I have three different remotes to the TV, Once in a while I may get it to actually change the channel ,or turn the volume up or down. But it will only do it ramdomly and then it wont do it again. Ive reprogrammed my remotes, and changed the batteries in them, So I dont think thats the problem. Any Suggestions would be appreciated. Thank You. I have a Toshiba 36HFX71 36" TV. The remote doesn't work consistently. I will be working fine one day and the next nothing. The lights all light up and I have changed the batteries several times. I have even taken the remote in to have it cleaned. Any ideas on what else it could be?

Toshiba 32a14 does not respond to remote control

There is a infrared light sensor inside the TV which detects the infrared rays emitted from the remote control, when we press each button on the remote control. If this sensor has got damaged, the set won't respond to any remote control handset. The sensor can be located just behind the infrared sensor window at the front panel of the TV. To access it, you have to open the TV. It is a three terminal component, will be soldered diretily to front panel circuit board, of with the main baord itslef. Will look somewhat brownish black in colour. There are so many types can be seen . Just look what type if fitted with your TV.

Toshiba 32a33. I'll be watching tv and the volume bar shows goes down to 0 (no sound) when it is in this mode the remote control will not work on the volume, you can get up and manually up the volume...

1st check to see if your remote volume down button is stuck. 2nd do you have wireless internet (router) or any other wireless devices phones,ceiling fans, another Toshiba remote, if so try unplugging them (or remove the batteries if it's a remote) while it's changing the volume one at a time. If a different device makes it stop try changing the channel on it. Also make sure the t.v doesn't have a mind of its own and remove the batteries out of the t.v remote, let it ride for a couple days if it happens without the remote being in play then you know your t.v is acting strange, if it stops then starts back up when you start using the remote again then you know your dealing with a remote issue. Sometimes Freq.'s merge causing remotes/wireless devices to conflict with each other.

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.

Remote will not control TV (but will control other devices)

Your remote control could still be the problem. Try another Toshiba remote on your TV or try your remote on another Toshiba and see what happens. Don't ever look past the easy repairs.

Any Remote Control for my TV does not work!

If you're sure the proper codes have not been lost in both your remotes, then possibly the IR receciver in you TV has gone bad. Stargazer

Toshiba TV Remote Control not working

I have been seeing a lot of Toshiba remote "eyes" (the infra-red receiver inside the TV) fail recently. If several known good remotes cannot control the TV then the IR receiver will have to be replaced. If you have no experience soldering and unsoldering PC boards then have a qualified tech handle it for you.
