Remote Control Problem

Sometimes the remote control works perfectly but it is pretty rare. Sometimes I can turn on the TV with the remote but suddenly nothing else works (change channels, volume or turn off). Sometimes (more and more often) unable to turn on the TV.

My remote control for my Pro View TV suddenly quit working. Is it fixable or, if not, how can I get a new one?


The replacement batteries could be defective or installed incorrectly. If the remote cannot be revived, you can search online for several providers of replacement OEM remotes.

Model 32HF73 I replaced the remote from Toshiba and I don't have a vcr or anything hooked up to it and the remote won't work. Sometimes when I was pressing the on/off switch a bunch of times,not turning...


hello, usually if the remot control is ok, then the infrared receptor need to be replaced, he is placed near the stand by light.
in a rare case the problem is at the 5v voltage that goes to the receptor. more rare is the possibility
that something is wrong at the microprocessor circuit.
i hope it was helpful!! Let me know if you need further guidance

The remote control does not work to turn tv on. Channel does not change either so need to go to tv and all works well when at tv.


Hello, you need to make sure what is broken, the remote control or the TV. To check the integrity of the remote control, you need to broadcast from the remote control while he aimed at the video camera. If you see a flicker of light through the camera it shows the integrity of the remote control. In this case the infrared receptor need to be replaced, he is placed near the stand by light.in a rare case the problem is at the 5v voltage that goes to the receptor. more rare is the possibility that something is wrong at the microprocessor circuit. . If the remote control out of order, can be opened carefully by a thin screwdriver, usually the causes to the error are loose components or contacts that are supposed to weld back into the board.

My Toshiba will only turn on or off manually. It will not work with the remote. Tried putting new batteries in the remote...still does not control tv.

TV won't respond to ANY remote control


Eagle 57 had the answer, your TV's are blind. The remote control sensing circuit in the TV is faulty. No remote will control it anymore.

Remotes not working for tv


You have already diagnosed the problem,the remote receiver on the tv is bad,is rare but it happens but before you call for help try unpluging the tv from the wall for 10 minutes and then plug it back in and try it,sometimes this takes care of the problem,if that does not do it you will need the help of a servicer ,your remotes are working but the receiver is not processing the information.If you are familiar with tv service it should be easy to locate the receiver,sometimes is soldered to the chassis and sometimes is part of the push button assembly and conected to the chassis by wires,if is part of the push button is easier to replace,if you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and ask for help.
