Question about Toshiba 36AF43 36" TV

1 Answer

Toshiba 36AF43 will not operate via remote control (Yes, the batteries are fresh!)

We have a Toshiba 36AF43 that operates with our DirecTV system. We have been using our DirecTV remote to pretty much operate all of the TV functions. Our TV recently stopped accepting any command via remote control. I re-programed the DirecTV remote, changed the batteries and so forth - still would operate the TV system. I tried the TV's factory supplied remote and it can't operate the TV either. What do we do? Can we fix this? Please help!!!!!

Try unplugging the tv and allow the tv to remain unplugged for a least 5 minutes. This will force a reset on the tv which should resolve your remote issues.

Check the remote control for its infrared emission by pressing all buttons on it. Check it with fresh batteries. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV.

Remote want work on tv


Make sure that you're using the supplied Remote (RMY-906) to control the TV. If so, perform the steps given below to resolve the issue.

  • Make sure that you're using batteries which are having enough charge. Try using fresh alkaline batteries.
  • Do not use rechargeable batteries in the Remote.
  • Ensure that the batteries are inserted correctly with the correct terminals by checking the + and - symbol in the battery compartment.
  • Make sure that the Remote is set to operate with the correct functions. On the remote control, press the TV FUNCTION button to re-check this.
  • Press the POWER button and other buttons to test the operation.
  • Make sure that none of the buttons are jammed in the remote control.
  • Ensure that the remote control is being used no closer than 3 feet and no further than 10 feet away from the unit. Try using the remote control at varying distances from the TV.
  • When using the remote control, be sure to point it directly at the remote sensor on the device.
  • Remove any obstacles that may be in the path between the remote control and the device.
  • Ensure the remote sensor of the device is not exposed to direct sunlight or bright florescent lights, as this can interfere with the sensors ability to receive signals from the remote control.
  • Try resetting the Remote. To reset the Remote. remove the batteries from the remote control, press every button twice, and then reinstall the batteries.
  • Try resetting the TV also to check the operation. To reset the TV, disconnect the power cord for a short period of time (approximately 1 minute), then reconnect the power cord and power on the television.

If the remote control is able to operate other devices (such as cable box, DVD Player or satellite receiver), then the issue may be with the IR sensor on the TV. If this is the case then the TV that will require service. Otherwise, the remote control may need replaced.

Good Luck!
