Remote Control not working for MW24FM3 Toshiba

Any suggestions how to get a remote control to work for this unit? Everything is original and all of a sudden the remote doesn't work. I've replaced batteries, ensured the remote is the proper distance and the line of sight is clear to the TV... but I get nothing.
Do remotes often go bad? I don't want to replace the remote if it is potentially something with the TV.
Any thoughts? Thanks, Rick

    Had the same problem with my TV, bought a replacement Remote, but that didn't work, when I called the company who sold me the remote, they told me the sensor in the TV was gone.

I have the same problem with my unit. I use the original remote and my Tivo remote. Both stopped working at the same time. Ocassionally they will work for awhile then stop. They always both work or both don't. Therefore it must be the TV; likely the sensor or something connected to it. Sorry I don't have a solution. Guess I need to take it to the shop.

We don't have a remote for the tv-vcr the model is mv13l3


The remote is listed as in stock here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Toshiba-Parts/Television-Parts/BZ614201/0057/528/Model-MV13L3/1100/0333300?keySuffixId=NA&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=MV13L3&subCompDesc=Cabinet%20parts&brandDesc=TOSHIBA&modelDesc=COLOR-TV/VCR&blt=11 . Remotes.com also has the original remote: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=MV13L3&uuid=12990337541060 .

There are also many universal remotes that will work. Just make sure to research and make sure you select a model that has codes for combination TV/VCR units. Many manuals and code lists are available online from their manufacturer. There are some remotes that do not handle combination units.

RCA remote documentation is available here: http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/ . One for All remotes have their documentation here: http://www.oneforall.com/ .

I hope this helps.

Remote does not work


Remotes devices are heavily depened on it CPU chip,might the CPU chip is shorted and dead the remote is garbage.Tries take the remote aparts,take some Q tips dipping in some rubbing alchahol clean the PCB board and inner rubber layers,wait like about 20 mins. than putting it back together again put in brand new batteries,might get the remote to work again.Not try website like Remotes.com to buy an original or very close to the original remote.

TV does not detect remote control.


Remote control receiving sensor circuit problem in the TV. Mostly due to degradation of the sensor over a period of time.

Go close to the TV and see whether you get a response. If it responds try determining the distance back wards. If the remote works up to certain distance, the problem is weak sensor (TV).

If totally not operative it is sensor circuit problem. It could be sensor or it's associated parts.

Toshiba 13' tv dvd combo, Fios remote control need code


Greetings!

Here are the codes: take a deep breath:

0181, 1283, 0183, 1292, 0087, 0677, 0859, 0872, 1183, 1383, 1683, 1731

You may find that these don't work. Often, with combination pieces like yours, you will find you are lucky if you can get a universal remote to turn it on and change the volume and little more. The fact that Toshiba did not build this peice can compound the problem. My suggestion, if you can't get the universal to program up, is to use the original remote for the set. If you do not have the original remote it is available from www.encompassparts.com for around $15.00 plus shipping. The original part number for the Toshiba remote is 72796929.

Good luck!

THIS IS JUST A SUGGESTION .... PLEASE I HAVE A TOSHIBA AND I AM NOT AN EXPERT ON TV REMOTES!!! MY ORIGINAL REMOTE HAS A SWITCH ON THE TOP LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE REMOTE. IT HAS TV, CABLE,VCR, AND AUX. MAKE SURE YOURS IS ON "TV".(IF OURS ARE SIMULAR) IN THE MIDDLE OF MY REMOTE THERE IS A LARGE ROUND BUTTON WITH "ENTER" ON IT. PRESS THAT ONCE AND ALL THE MODES SHOULD APPEAR ON THE SCREEN. USING THE 4 ARROWS AROUND THE "ENTER" BUTTON YOU CAN CURSOR TO THE OPTIONS FROM MODE TO MODE. AND USE THE "ENTER" OR "EXIT" TO SET IT IN THE ADJUSTMENT YOU WANT. MY TOSHIBA IS A PIP "PICTURE IN PICTURE MODEL". MY CABLE REMOTE COMMANDER DOES NOTHING BUT WORK THE TV'S ON-OFF, CHANNEL, AND VOLUME. UNIVERSALS WILL NOT OPERATE THE REST OF TOSHIBAS OPTIONS ... THAT I HAVE FOUND ANYWAY. LIKE I SAID ... I HAVE A TOSHIBA AND HOPE YOUR TOSHIBA REMOTE IS SET UP THE SAME AS MINE OR SIMULAR TO HELP YOU OUT. I WISH YOU LUCK. JUST TRYING TO HELP.
