Question about Toshiba 32A43 32" TV
Remote stopped working. tried several different remotes, reprogrammed them, new batts ect... Problem appears to be w/ infrared receiver in set. What i the best way to fix this without calling in a pro?
Well finally after trying everything else short of replacing the ir port or hitting it with hammer. What I done was drill a whole in the IR port screen about the size of a pencil so I could look inside.Well low and behold the remote worked from that day on. i don't know if I shook something in place or or the ir port was blocking signal. Either way i'm glad it works.

After exhausting all other options, I have decided to buy a different brand TV.

A universal remote is not a reliable way to test a remote control. If you can have an original remote this is the best way to test the remote function of the set. Or, if you have another set that is the same model as yours to test a universal remote, then the test would be acceptable.
If the remote has failed on the TV side, this can be from a number of problems in the set. It can be the remote IR sensor module itself, or one of the buffer amplifier stages on the way to the uPC, or the uPC itself. In some models the buffer amp is built in to the IR sensor module.
Without properly troubleshooting this fault, there is no possible way to actualy determine the point of failure. More than 90% of the time, the failure is the remote. Remotes get dropped, and abused often, and therefore they are subject to a high degree of failure.
Did you try unplugging the set from the AC mains for at least 15 to 20 seconds? This will cause a reset to occure for the uPC. If the fault is still there the set and the remote control will need a proper follow-up to service it.
