Question about Toshiba 36A50 36" TV
I have a Toshiba tv and Time Warner Cable (TWC) service. I have the TWC remote for the cable box and I even have the manual that came with the remote. I have tried ALL of the codes and have even searched for the codes using the techniques provided in the manual. On and off I have been at this for two days using the book and codes found online... I finally gave up and tried using a different TWC remote. I found the manual online and used all the codes in it for a Toshiba tv, again using the 'search for codes' option after failing with the codes provided. Can you please help me??? -Most Appreciative
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

I had the same problem with my remote...over time it slowly stopped working. (sorry for poor terminology) I noticed that one of the battery terminals was corroded and that the metal connecting the battery to the board was completely gone. I simply swapped this out with one from another remote and now its working fine. Seems the only issue is that the battery was not connected.
I hope this helps.

If the remote is the original Toshiba remote, it obviously should work the TV. Have you checked to make sure it has good batteries? Also, if old batteries leaked in it at any time there may be corrosion on the battery contacts keeping it from working. Make sure the metal contacts look shiny, not crusty and corroded.
If the remote still doesn't work there are two possibilities. One is that the remote is just bad. You can get a universal remote, set it for Toshiba and try it. It will at least control power, channel and volume functions. If the universal remote doesn't work, the remote sensor in the TV would be the probable cause. Like any other part, they can sometimes fail.

SOURCE: I bought a Toshiba 32
Are you using the freeview tuner, I only ask as it looks like your having a similar problem that I had a few months back. I moved into a new house and plugged in the tv. Using the freeview tuner I wasnt able to get any channels. It turned out although the aerial picked up regular analogue tv it wasnt the correct aerial for freeview.
