Remote Control will not work.

Neither the Toshiba CT9946 remote that came with my Toshiba Projection Television model number 50A61 will work. Before I call the repair service, I wanted to know if this is a possible do it yourself fix and if not what should the cost me to fix it.

    So it is the remotes that are not working and not the remote senor? Because the remote that the Comcast Cable Company provided would also work the Television, but it to does not work. I am sorry if I am repeating myself, I just actually want to understand that it is the remote and not the remote senor. When i spoke with the mobile repairman he said it was the remote now I totally confused. Thank you GURU for your assistance. And if it is in deed the remote, i willl actually purchase some your company since you are the one who truly solved the issue. I will await your response.

You mean fix the remote - - not worth the cost...
Replace it with a miracle remote
Far less than replacing it with the original and it works everything including access to the service menus.. We have several here in the shop for the various brands and we do have the Toshiba.. It is everyhting it says it is...

    Remotes? Your original question referenced only the original Toshiba remote - you've actually tried operating the Tv with a second or possibly third remote??

    I wouldn't attempt to fix the original Toshiba remote if you believe that has failed. Just get a Miracle remote, much cheaper.

    But if you've tried and failed to operate the Tv with a second or third remote and still no luck then it could well be the sensor..

    A sure way to know if the remote(s) are working is to simply test them with an infrared reader, a camcorder or a cheap infrared card... Cards are good for a lifetime and very inexpensive.. Try here:

Remote won't work.

this would be the IR sensor on the tv that recieves the signal from the remote , but testing of the sensor and components in the circuit should be done.
there will be an Identification number on the sensor and you will have to get that ID and you can either google it or post it here and I will help you find the sensor

Remote control not responding to tv

You need to program the remote to work with the TV. And I hate to point you this way, but I've looked around for the manual on this remote, and can't find it, so, go to the Toshiba website and email Customer service that you have lost your manual for the remote. See if they will email you one. I bet they will.

Toshiba 50A61..power comes on but no picture or sound

There are fuses in this unit, one could be blown there are also capacitors and a regulator that could be at fault I would suggest U find a repair man in your area if possible to go thru this unit find the fault and repair. It would cost less than to repair than buying a new one.
