SOURCE: Lost functionality w/ Universal Remote

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

SOURCE: toshiba CT-90275 remote

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.

I bought a Toshiba TV with remote CT90326 from a friend who had a different service (satellite) and I have cable and the remote works to turn on the TV , punch in specific channels, and to change volume,...


Any television remote will give full access to the television functions. The remote must be specific to that television. Google
make model replacement remote
There are original ones on ebay, plus companies that sell remotes that are an exact copy. The CT90326 may be for another Toshiba model, or of course it may be faulty.

Then we have the remote on the cable or satellite unit. That gives full command of the unit functions, but BASIC control of the television, normally On, Off, Channel Up and down to allow access to DVD or similar and Volume Up and Down. Everything else is done from the TV Remote.

To get the cable remote to make that happen, you Google
Toshiba Remote Codes
and run through them all until a selected code allows you to switch the television on and off.

Parental lock


Child Lock

Combos
--Should have original remote. Press and hold the power button for 6 to 10 seconds


Combo Model T25208, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, simultaneously press VOLUME down on the TV/VCR front panel and the 0 number button on the remote for a few seconds. This resets the password and you can enter a new one.

Combo Model 13TVR62, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, press STOP/EJECT on the TV/VCR front panel and MENU on the remote simultaneously. This resets the password, but not the limits you’ve set.
Televisions with Parental Lock Feature


If you forgot your password for this feature, press the following buttons on the remote, one at a time. (Note: You must be in the password entry screen) Press, Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this unlocks parental controls and you can now re-enter a new password.
OR TRY THIS..
Press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds. Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS

CTC169AU
Channels that have been locked can be viewed only when the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to OFF. This can only be done with the remote control-it can not be changed with the buttons on the front of the TV.

Therefore, after you turn on PARENTAL CTRL, you simply hide the remote control so that your children can not watch the locked channels. The locked-out channels will remain unviewable even if the TV is unplugged or the channels are autoprogrammed again. The only way to view locked channels is to use the supplied remote control to set the PARENTAL CTRL function to OFF.

The PARENTAL CTRL and the CHAN CTRL functions work hand-in-hand. The instructions below will first tell you how to turn parental control on or off with the PARENTAL CTRL function and then how to lock desired channels with the CHAN CTRL function.
1. Repeatedly press MENU to select SETUP MENU, and then press + or - to display setup functions. Repeatedly press MENU to select the PARENTAL CTRL function. . When this function is set to ON, PARENTAL CTRL is activated and any channels you locked with the CHAN CTRL function will not be viewable. . When this function is set to OFF, PARENTAL CTRL is deactivated and all channels are viewable.

2. To lock channels, press the MENU button to select the CHAN CTRL function. Select a channel you want to lock by pressing CHANNEL up or down. Then press +. The CHAN CTRL setting will change from NORMAL to LOCKED when that channel is locked. To return the channel to NORMAL, press the - button. Repeat step 2 for each channel you want to lock. If the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON while you are locking out channels, each channel will go blank as you lock it. When the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON and a channel which has been locked out is tuned, the TV will display the words PARENTAL CONTROL to let your kids know you have locked it.

CTC185's
If the front panel function buttons don't work, (menu, ch up/dn etc.) but the functions work normal with the remote, enter the "Channel" menu with the remote and turn "Parental Control" off.

CTC203's
In the event you have forgotten your password, perform the following procedure:
Press and hold for 3 seconds the TV button on the remote while pressing the menu button on the TV.
This procedure will turn off the parental lock and erase the previous password .

Another Possibility To Try For Various Models: If TV's in the Parental mode and askes for a password that's forgotten, Press menu on the TV, select Parental Lock #4 on menu, then with the remote press Mute, Display, Clear, and Reset buttons in sequence.

TX808 Chassis
If Parental Controls have been set and you don't know the password, do this:
Press and hold the volume down and the channel up buttons at the same time for 5 seconds.
Now you can reset the password to 0000, and using that password you can now access the V-Chip menus.

TV's (Made by Daewoo or possibly Apex, ie. GE model 24GP653)
The factory default pass code of 6688 is also the override code, in case the owner forgets their pass code. If that doesn't work, another place in the owners manual says to push Function and Mute on the remote at the same time. Function is the top right button.

Function switch doesn't work


This is due to switch malfunction problem. Dust and corrosions shows these type of problem. Make one general service by technical person. Or if you have keypad lock system in your menu options lock your keypad control. The TV will work.
