Question about Toshiba 32HFX72 32" TV

3 Answers

Remote controls will intermittently work

I have the standard Toshiba remote and a Dish Network remote that controls the TV and Satellite receiver. These have worked fine for couple of years. We recently moved and shortly after the remotes will not control the TV. I have replaced the batteries twice and it will only sometimes work.  The Dishnet remote will only control the satellite receiver all the time and sometimes the TV.  Both remotes will not 100 % of the time operate the TV at short, long, left or right range of TV. There is no blockage either. I do not want to pack this monstrosity of a TV down two flights of stairs to have it repaired and back again. Is the most likely problem the remote receiver? if so about how much is that part?  I would rather disassemble the TV myself and attempt to fix it or get a new LCD TV. I have worked with electronics enough to get into trouble. What is your thoughts on this.  Thank you,
Jason

Hey, I would definitely recommend trying all the options mentioned above however sometimes it might never work correctly again (the remote control that is) and it might've been a defective remote control to begin with. Anyways, I had a few friends that have been in similar situations, and usually they won't even bother and went on the internet to find a replacement remote control. What they have done and probably what I would do if I was in that situation is head on over to a replacement remote control website like EveryTVRemote.com and look through their directories for that specific model Toshiba 32HFX72, and they should have what you are looking for in stock!

Just repaired a friend's Toshiba 36inch 200 lb heavy with exactly the same problem.

The receiver inside the TV was the problem and getting to the screws holding the module board in are extremely difficult to remove. Watch the crossover connectors that attach between module boards as they are very delicate. Damage them and you maybe S.O.L.

Dish tv 21.1 control solutions


craneserv710,
I would need more information on if it has intermittent control of TV or satellite to provide the best information. I have listed some steps to try below for either situation!
Satellite:
If the remote has intermittent use on the satellite, ensure there is nothing that may be causing interference. For a TV1, this could be a fluorescent light, or a direct heat source blocking the IR signal. If it is a TV2, interference may be caused by a device that is powered on. You can try turning off equipment to see if interference is removed, or you can try moving the antenna on the back of the receiver. If it is sticking straight up, turn it parallel with the receiver. If it is laying flat, put it straight up.
Television:
If the intermittent control is for the TV functions, you may need to program a new code into the remote. There are multiple codes for a remote and some will work completely, while others only provide intermittent functions.
Let me know if you have any other questions, or if you can provide additional details! I'll be happy to assist you.

I have a Sony Bravia TV, only a year old, had several power outages and suddenly RM-YD028 TV remote is not working at all. On the Dish network remote, the satellite controls are working, but not TV...


If neither the DISH Network remote or the TV remote is working for you most likely your remote sensor is going bad. If you'd like to try readdressing the remote follow the steps and procedures below. Codes: 500, 837, 125, 808, 798, 640, 796, 783, 795, 797, 865, 846, 842, 563, 501, 810, 841, 781, 807, 838, 690, 758, 843, 845, 591, 839, 806, 840, 844
To program the remote:
1.) Hold the clear "TV" mode button for four seconds or until all four buttons at the top of the remote are lit.
2.) Press one of the three digit codes listed above followed by pound (#)
3.) Check for functionality by trying the volume power and mute.
Be sure to press the "SAT" button to return to satellite mode if the code works.

Dish network changed to snow when I tried to change station to channel 13. I pressed "power" for 5 seconds with no change.


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service here. It sounds like when you try to change channels with your remote, it is changing the channels on your TV and not your Satellite Receiver. In the top left corner of the Dish Network remote is an SAT button. When you try to change channels on the Satellite receiver this button should be lighting up. If the TV button lights up, it means the remote is working the TV. Press and release the "SAT" button after you have the picture back on the TV and it should work normally. I hope this resolves your remote issue!

I programmed a phillips tv with the dish remote control and now it does not work with the dish receiver. help!


Hello, Matt with DISH Network here. Make sure the remote is in satellite mode by pressing the "SAT" button one time in the top left of the remote. If the remote is still not working, open the door on the front of the receiver and press the "System Info" button one time. When system info is on your screen, on the remote press the "SAT" button one time, and then press the "record" button three times. Try pressing select on your remote an it ideally should be working. Hope this helps.

After setting up a new tv, the dish remote will not work with the satellite. what could be the problem?


mbpope

If I understand you correctly, once you installed your new TV, your DISH remote doesn't allow you to change satellite channels. If this is correct, you will need to readdress the remote to the receiver. I have provided a link with these instructions. Included with the link is instructions for programming the remote to your TV.

After programming my NEW Harmony One Logitech remote I can't get it to change channels on the Dish HDTV DVR along with a bunch of other problems.


To control a Dish Network PVR/Satellite, it needs to be set to respond to the default Remote Address (1).

To reset your Dish Network PVR/Satellite to the default Remote Address:

1. Press SYSTEM INFO on the receiver's front panel. The System Information screen displays on the nearby TV and shows the Remote Address.
2. Using the original Dish Network remote, press and hold SAT on your remote control for about three seconds, until all of the mode buttons light up, and then release SAT.
3. Using the NUMBER PAD, press the 1 button
4. Press POUND (#). If you entered the address correctly, SAT will flash three times.
5. Press RECORD. Make sure the Remote Address you see on the System Information screen is 1.
6. Press the SELECT button on the front panel to close the System Information screen.
7. Your Harmony remote should now control your Dish Network PVR/Satellite box

NOTE: Dish Network PVR/Satellite receivers sometimes have two tuners, allowing them to be used in more than one room on different TVs. Harmony remotes can only control a Dish Network receiver's main tuner while still in the same room with direct line of sight to the device.


What other issues are you having with the remote?

Remote Controll works inconsistently


Have you replaced the batteries in the remote with newones? If you have, you may have IR interference from some source in yourroom. It could be from a florescent lamp, another player, or even the TV. Isthe receiver in an open space or in an enclosed area? The IR sensor needs adirect line of sight to work properly. You may also check the receiver ifanything is obstructing the sensors, maybe dust. I hope this helps.

Dish IR Remote 20.0 has problems after sunset.


The problem for me was the TV giving off IR signals that interfered with DISH's poorly designed remote. When the TV's room ambient light sensor was turned on and it became dusk outside the DISH remote would stop working. Moving the receiver away from the TV helps but the problem is not eliminated until the light sensor is turned off.
Until DISH corrects this poor design there may be no other viable solution.

Switch Toshiba projection tv to receive input from video-1?


jbrowne_usa

If your DISH remote is programmed to your Toshiba TV, you can press the TV button at the top left of the remote and then release. This will put the remote in TV mode. Press and release the TV/Video button just below the clear TV button. This will cycle through the inputs on your TV. Continue to press and release until you have Video-1 displayed on your TV screen. I hope this helps.
