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,

Re: Remote controls will intermittently work

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 and look through their directories for that specific model Toshiba 32HFX72, and they should have what you are looking for in stock!

Re: Remote controls will intermittently work

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.

What is my tv code for programming my dish network remote.


Welcome to FixYa!

You can use these codes to program the Dish remote control to your Sanyo DS32920:
542, 589, 590, 591, 592,609

You may also try Power Scan Instructions. Please follow the steps bellow.

1. While at the TV locations (TV1 or TV2 depending on which key is installed), point the remote at the TV. Press and hold the TV MODE button on the remote until all four MODE buttons at the top of the remote light up.

2. Press the RECEIVER POWER button on the remote.

3. Press the UP ARROW on the remote, about one press every two seconds. Stop as soon as the TV turns off. This process may take several minutes.
4. Press POUND (#) on the remote. The TV MODE button will flash three times.

5. Press TV POWER on the remote to turn on the TV. Press VOLUME on the remote to confirm the remote controls the TV. If this does not work, return to Step 1.

Keep me posted.

Toshiba CN36X81 television.. NO Sound... Great Picture. Using the TV2 output of a DISH Network HD receiver... TV2 output is std def, coax output. Using a different TV I get picture and sound... but not...

IF coming in via, the "Dish" networked receiver, please check that this volume is turned way up, on the TV. and then control the the Volume, with the Dish Remote, often this is a problem, as one is turned down, and the other cannot turn that up, simply try syncing the Volume controls, UP on TV, control the Audio with dish remote. thats all i can think of. Check by feeding a signal IN from an AV, source, ie: Yellow, Video, & Red& White, Audio. Turn TV UP and check, IF it responds to this all is well. If NOT then you do indeed have a fault, with the TV.

Toshiba 36a41 television

You should be able to use your remote control to do this.Your channel 73 is more than likely UHF 73 so you need to put your tv in the antenna setting rather than cable setting. Once you do this just input 73 with your remote. Hope this helps! Stargazer

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
