Hi hanksfamily-

I have had success (about 1/2 the time) splitting the remote covers and cleaning the keypad and mating keypad contacts area with rubbing alcohol (or if it got a soda/syrup bath, Windex first and then alcohol) and then carefully reassembling. Also check for broken wires from the battery holder to the circuit board, and make sure there is no corrosion build up on the battery holder contacts.

If this doesn't work, the remote is probably toast and you need to go get you a universal replacement remote, and follow the directions to program it for your make and model.

Hope this helps, and good luck!

My Toshiba TV, Model 57HX81 quit responding to any remote control. How do we repair that or how much will it cost to have it serviced?


Does the rest of the TV work fine? If so, the problem is likely with the remote control. Have you replaced the batteries and made sure they are installed correctly? Did batteries recently leak in the remote to where the new batteries may not be making good contact with the metal springs? Has the remote been dropped a lot? If so, a solder joint may be broken for the IR transmitter.

If you have a universal remote that can be programmed to the TV model, that should make it easy to confirm if the issue is the remote or the TV.

I need a new remote for a WS-55313


If the tv was moved it may have a loose cable...you can get remotes for way less than that.

MY REMOTE DOESN'T WORK AFTER I CHANGED THE BATTERIES. WILL I HAVE TO GET A NEW REMOTE? AND IF SO, WHICH ONE TO WORK WITH MY TV?


Just changing the batteries would not cause the remote to go bad. check the way you have put the batteries in, put a neww pair of batteries, see the terminals inside the remote are clean? If it does not help then you can choose a dedicated remote for philips tvs that does not need programming. These cost $5 to 15.

Remote won't work with TV nor do console button even after reset


Found my problem.

Looks like the core of the problem is this:

microswitches on the frontcontrol board leaking.replace it.
http://www.fixya.com/support/t2422987-same_problem What worked for me was this: Supposedly, the front panel is known to have leaky switches. power,volume,menu,etc.. They asked me to take my finger and rub left to right back and forth hitting all the buttons, do this about 20 times.. then poke the reset button in and out a few times.. Wait about 60 to 90 seconds and see if your green light quits flashing.. If so, try powering on with your remote.

Remote is not working with tv


You probably have a defective IR receiver in the set, have it looked at by your local service company.

No remote control response (toshiba 42h81)


Are you SURE the cables are right?? The cable for the remote sensor and the speakers are both 4 pin and can easily be swapped. The cable with the brown wire (speakers) will attach to the convergence/signal PCB on the far right edge, while the remote connector plugs into a connector closer to the center of this board.

My remote wont work


Make sure there isn't corrosion on the battery terminals. Try cleaning the battery terminals. Batteries left for a long time in one device will leak and corrode the terminals so even with new batteries the remote might not work. New batteries usually help too LOL !! Good Luck!

Problems with my Apex CHKT2A remote


I've seen remote sensors that quit but it's rare, usually due to water getting dripped on them from cleaning. Pick up a cheap programmable remote and see if it will work. Long shot, check the menu, in some sets the remote can be programmed off.
