You can test the transmitter by pointing it at your mobile phone camera and watch the light flash but the sensor is more difficult. All you can do is assume if the transmitter works, the receiver may be faulty.

I have a toshiba 50a61 tv sound no picture

Hi ogmrwizzard,
This is an indication of faulty lamp.
First check the lamp connectors, pull-out, inspect the connectors and then re-insert and ensure its connection from the ballast board. If the symptoms still persist, you must replaced the lamp to back the picture again.
Hope I helped you.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Toshiba 50A61 have sound but no picture

Make sure correctly hooked up in back of TV. Then in menu go to audio and be shure that speakers are set to ON. Most TV's you can turn the speakers on and off in the audio menu. If they are still off you might have bad speakers and need to replace them.

Remote won't work.

this would be the IR sensor on the tv that recieves the signal from the remote , but testing of the sensor and components in the circuit should be done.
there will be an Identification number on the sensor and you will have to get that ID and you can either google it or post it here and I will help you find the sensor

Toshiba 50A61..power comes on but no picture or sound

There are fuses in this unit, one could be blown there are also capacitors and a regulator that could be at fault I would suggest U find a repair man in your area if possible to go thru this unit find the fault and repair. It would cost less than to repair than buying a new one.
