Remote Control Sensor is broken

The remote control sensor is broken and I need to adjust the picture controls. Is that possible without the remote, or do I have to have the sensor replaced and use a universal remote control?

I have a Hitachi 43FWX20B t that has the screen zoomed in, my son however lost the remote, is there a way I can adjust the format without the remote?

to adjust this television feature is to have remote control or open the unit then manualy adjust(but this can only be done by the expert). better to buy universal remote control..its easy to set amd adjust if you have that one..

Remote control No work

Try another remote control, if it is also not working that means remote sensor in tv got bad and become unable to receive remote signals, replace remote sensor in tv.
If other remote works then replace batteries in bad/ suspected remote and check.
Let me know model and brand of your tv if you have additional question.

My toshiba 62hm84 was given to me without remote control. Can I operate it without it or do need to get a remote.

The remote control for this model is no longer available through Toshiba. You can operate the set but will not be able to use the picture size features. You should be able to work the main functions and also access the picture and audio on- screen adjustments. If you find a vendor that happens to have miscellaneous remotes, the remote number is CT90164.
I hope this helps,

My sanyo ds35500 has too much red in the picture. you can adjust it on the inside but it just goes back to red.

The auto grey scale sensor is maladjusted. It is within the software and without access to the eeprom that contains the data and a set up remote control, there is not a lot you can do except refer it to an Authorized Dealer.

My verizon fios remote control stop to control the 65" cinema series toshiba tv.the remote seems to be ok.The oryginal tv remote doesnt control it also.I think that there is something wron with the tv...

Yes, most likely the sensor is at fault - more precisely it's connections to the motherboard are iffy. You must take the back cover off the tv and reseat them. While you are there check their soldering points - with age they tend to melt and get loose.

The TV does not pick up the sensor from the remote control. The remote control works fine with the other Sony TV. I try to replace the remote sensor on the TV, but I don't know how and where to buy.

Yeah! ... After extensive digging around, I found the service manual at the following location. You have to create an account to get the DL (9.3 Mb) and the site is in Spanish, but the manual is in in English. The remote sensor is on board HC and should be a simple fix:
