Question about RCA 32V420T 32" TV

1 Answer

TV Remote control

Mike, I read your comment about remotes that you posted on July 10, 2007. You stated:
"I have been seeing a lot of Toshiba remote "eyes" (the infra-red receiver inside the TV) fail recently. If several known good remotes cannot control the TV then the IR receiver will have to be replaced. If you have no experience soldering and unsoldering PC boards then have a qualified tech handle it for you."

I have the same problem with a Toshiba 32AF43 tube tv, and I believe the IR receiver is bad. I can solder a bit, but I do not know how to open the TV case to access the IR. Can you point me to a web site that explains this, or can you easily explain how to access the IR receiver?
Thank you in advance. Richard.

The IR reciever should be in the front of the set where the remote IR window is located.

I can tell you that there is a lot more that can go wrong than just the IR reciever. There may be a buffer amp along the way to the uPC, or there may be a fault with the uPC itself. The fault may also be a cold solder connection, or a missing supply voltage to the the IR reciever or to some of the components involved in the IR signal process.

In opening and working on your set, there are serious safety issues involved. You should be giving the set out to a trained and experienced TV tech for proper and reliable service.

I need the remote code for the tv: Toshiba 20af46c. Will a universal remote work with this tv?


0038,0032,0036,0030. Try these codes. If you wish to buy its original remote control, you have to contact the authorized service center. If you wish to buy a universal remote control, you should know about, which brand remote control have setup code to your TV/device brand. You should first make sure about the number of digits in the codes to your device have. There are 3-digit, 4-digit, 5-digit and even 2-digit codes. You can get this detail by the code list attached to every universal remote control. The brand name of the remote control you select isn't a matter; but, its code list should have setup codes to your TV/device brand, otherwise you can't set it up with your device. Check this link and note which brand remote control have set-up codes to your device brand, and buy that brand remote control, according to availability.

I need codes for a toshiba tv i have a game changer remote


Hello alfredo and welcome to FixYa. I see you need codes for a Toshiba television however the title of your question states a Sylvania television so if you don't mind I'll give you the codes for both.

Toshiba Remote Codes
0156, 0060, 0154

Sylvania Remote Codes
0054, 0030, 0020, 0096

If your remote control only accepts three digit codes you will have to drop the first zero off of these codes.

Example 0156 would be 156.

I hope this helps and thanks for visiting FixYa.

I lost my remote and need to switch the tv so I can get Directv - how can I do this without my remote


I can help you with your Toshiba TV & DirecTV remote control.

To get your TV setup so that you can view your DirecTV on it, I recommend you program your DirecTV remote to control your TV and then use the DirecTV remote to change the input of your TV to view the DirecTV programming.

You can choose between searching for the control code and
entering a code from the Toshiba TV list.

This is a list of all the Toshiba TV control codes for DIrecTV remote controls:

11524, 10154, 10156, 11256,
10060, 12006, 11945, 11936,
11935, 11918, 11704, 11656,
11635, 11369, 11356, 11343,
11325, 11306, 11156, 10845,
10832, 10822, 10650, 10149,
10148, 10036, 11971

I hope that helps.

Remote was not working well, called Toshiba. Recommend removing batteries & pressing all buttons. That worked for a while. Then nothing. Purchased new remote and it does not turn on TV. Is the infrared...


check out if the infrared is emited from your remote control, if it is NOT, then there could be problem with your infrared receiver embedded in the tv set.

to see this infrared beam, you need to read the article posted at http://www.unique-stuff.co.cc/fixing_remote_control_check_infrared.html

good luck

Remote control SENSOR not working


This could be a fault with your remote control. It will need checking by a Television Technician.

You can clean the remote control yourself if you are careful. You will need a spray can of Servisol IPA 170.
  • Carefully split the remote control unit along the seal between the top and bottom of the unit.
  • Carefully notice how you then dismantle the inner components. (I lay the components out in the order I take them out of the unit).
  • In a logical order spray, clean and dry each part.
  • When you have cleaned all the components, reassemble in their reverse order of the way you dismantled the unit.
  • Fit new batteries and test the remote control.
If this fails to solve the problem, you will have to take the remote control to a Television Technician for testing.

If the remote is found to be beyond repair, visit www.semenedis.com who may be able to supply you with a replacement remote control. I trust this information will be of help to you.
