Now, it depends upoon the Universal Remote u purchased. If your remote has the neccesary buttons - AV/TV switching,Front - Rear Input Switching, Menu, etc, it should work! Since there are multiple codes for every brand, keep feeding the various codes one by one, and checking if the neccesary functions operate. If, finally, you are unsuccesful, then, folow techman's advice. Best of Luck.

SOURCE: Remote doesn't work
According to Mintek support you should unplug your set for 30 minutes which is a reset/rebooting process. Then plug it in and hold the DVD eject button for 5 seconds [at least]. The DVD should eject unless there is another problem. If it doesn't eject then call Mintek support at 877-646-8358 for help. They told me you have to send the TV to them and they'll send a new one. If you have to do that then make sure you tell them you want your DVD returned when they get it out. Good luck.

A universal remote would cure this problem. It's generally since they are on the same system or IR codes are similar. There isnt much you can do to fix that problem unless you have a seperate universal remote to opperate seperately.

SOURCE: Function keys not working
try holding down the function key and hitting the numlock or scroll lock key, this is usually how you engage or disengage the laptops function keys on the keyboard. Most laptops have a light that will turn on and off when you do this, indicationg that the funtion keys are in use. depends on the brand

I have the same piece of junk remote and it has been slowly losing functionality over the last two months. Strangely enough, the only thing mine WILL do is scroll through the channels. Toshiba is about useless but if your TV is still under warranty, I'd call them and complain if this doesn't work. They are out of the remotes so plan on waiting awhile.
Turn off the TV and all the other things the remote is set up to control. Best to just leave that room altogether. Remove the batteries from the remote. Then, in turn, press each of the silicon buttons on the remote from top to bottom. Do NOT move the mode select switch at the bottom. Make sure you've hit each and every button. Replace the batteries and go try to see if it will work. Supposedly, this removes the static electric charges from the contacts under the buttons and will occasionally get the remote to work again. I had no luck at all. I've been waiting six weeks for a replacement and still no dice. The fastest way to fix the problem is to just go to an outside supplier and buy another one for $30. Then should Toshiba actually ever send you a replacement, you'll have one for the next time it crashes and burns.
I have a Toshiba 37HL67 model LCD and there is also supposed to be a firmware upgrade needed for those type models. The odds of that being the problem are so remote as to not be considered, but you never know. You will have to contact Toshiba to find the nearest repair dealer and have them do the upgrade. The upgrade is pretty simple. You unplug the TV, remove the cover for the card insert on the back of the TV, insert the firmware card. Replug the TV, follow the instructions on the screen, unplug the TV when it's done, remove the card, reset the little cover, plug in the TV and let it reboot. Toshiba guarantees that they will make the service guy come to you, but they usually are too lazy and want you to bring the TV to them. Toshiba will force them to do it, but if you can just get them to give you the firmware card you can download the instructions. Hope this helps.
