Question about Toshiba 36AF42 36" TV

2 Answers

Remote optic Just got Fios and Fios box hooked up to our Toshiba 36AF42. A couple of days later the volume and on/off from the Fios remote(and the original remote)) would not work and then after 1 hour or 2 hours or 1 day they would (channel up/down always works but that is activated through the Fios box). It seems like the optic eye for remote pickup has a problem. Do you have an ideas. Tom Earles, 609-731-1791. tearles@hmausa.com

    I am being offered a premium assistance plan- I already paid for it yesterday. Now I am getting concerned....I answered the tech back yesterday when he suggested I replace the FIOS box that it had already been replaced the day before and that I still needed help. That was the reply I was waiting for...not purchase the plan I already purchased?????

    I have the same problem with my Toshiba 46 inch. I know what the problem is but do not know how to permanently fix it. The TV gives off infared light that interferes with the optic light between the remote and the stb. If you turn off the tv and leave the stb on then all of the controls will work with the remote. Or if you leave everything on and completely block the TV and stb with a blanket or something then the remote will work on the stb side. This is a factory defect with a compatability issue with toshiba's, Olevia's, Pantasonic Plasma's and probably many more.

I've heard where other people have replaced thier box and remote several times. FIOS is in denial and will offer bogus solutions even when they know they have a compatability issue.

Toshiba 32a33. I'll be watching tv and the volume bar shows goes down to 0 (no sound) when it is in this mode the remote control will not work on the volume, you can get up and manually up the volume...


1st check to see if your remote volume down button is stuck. 2nd do you have wireless internet (router) or any other wireless devices phones,ceiling fans, another Toshiba remote, if so try unplugging them (or remove the batteries if it's a remote) while it's changing the volume one at a time. If a different device makes it stop try changing the channel on it. Also make sure the t.v doesn't have a mind of its own and remove the batteries out of the t.v remote, let it ride for a couple days if it happens without the remote being in play then you know your t.v is acting strange, if it stops then starts back up when you start using the remote again then you know your dealing with a remote issue. Sometimes Freq.'s merge causing remotes/wireless devices to conflict with each other.

Verizon FIOS remote buttons all work except Volume. Sony Trinitron WEGA remote has to be used. Volume is Fixed. Can something be done to control volume with the Verizon remote?


I had the same problem with a Sony Trinitron KV-32FS320 32" TV. I reset the remote to factory default.
  • Press and hold STB
  • While holding STB, press OK
  • Release both keys, wait for device keys to blink twice
  • Press 9-0-0. The STB key will blink three times
Then I reprogrammed the TV control.
  • Turn your television on
  • Press STB to enter Set Top Box mode
  • Press and hold TV
  • While holding TV, press OK
  • Release both keys, wait for device keys to blink twice
  • Press 1-1-2-7. This is one of the Sony TV codes
After this, the volume + and - worked to control the TV.
  • Program any other devices, such as DVD using procedure similar to above.
I hope this works for you.

Toshiba that uses CT-90040 remote


Is the cable remote a programmable universal? If so, just a matter of finding the codes to reprogram functions.
Concerning the "tuning video", are you saying that you can't get to different input sources?
