Hi Julia.

Unfortunately, your tv does NOT have a digital tuner built into it.This means that you will need to get a digital converter box in order to receive station broadcasts.
Luckily, places like WalMart Target, Kmart and Radio Shack all carry digital converter boxes that aren't expensive.
Most run in the $30-$40 range, so you won't be out alot of money to get one.

I hope this answers your question, and have a good day!

If new batteries did not fix the problem, then it means the problem is either from the remote or the TV.

Remote: Check the remote battery terminal, see if its not rust. Also, disassemble the remote, can check the connection between the terminal and the remote board, see if there is no disconnection of any kind.

If after checking and all seems well, then it means the remote is defective. To confirm, borrow a remote, test it with the TV. If it works, then it means you need to replace your remote. But if the remote you borrowed does not work, then it means the problem is from the TV and not the remote.

TV: There is a sensor in the TV that communicates with the remote. If this sensor is defective, the remote won't communicate with the TV.

The TV sensor might have loosed contact from inside of the TV or it maybe defective and need to be replaced.

So do the above troubleshooting and let me know if the problem is from the TV or remote. If problem is from the remote, you need to do a replacement. But if otherwise, let me knows as well.

yes you do. if you want all functions to work you the original remote and it will cost you. I had a pioneer TV that you could not adjust the color unless you had the original remote. if you contact Toshiba they will send you one for $90 to $120

You can go to the following website to download a copy of the service manual for your TV:


It is a multipart RAR archive so you will have to download all of the parts and then use either Winrar or Winzip to unpack it. You will have to have the free Adobe Acrobat Reader available on the Adobe site to read the manual.

Page 31
of the manual shows the part that you are looking for, It is about a third of the way down in the second column. Location # KB01, part #23906805, described as IC, REMOTE PHOTO RECIEVER, PIC-TB17. Page 39 in the manual shows you the CONTROL-1 BOARD PD0651. On the left hand upper side of the board the first component is labeled POWER SA05. Directly beneath that part is the KB01, which is the sensor you are looking for. You should be able to order the part from the shop that the repair guy that you mention in your question. Once you receive it, all you have to do is find the location on the parts placement picture in the manual, desolder and remove the old one, and then solder in the new one. You mention that you have some experience in radio/tv repair so I'm assuming that you are okay with that procedure. There are numerous sites all over the web that show and discuss the procedure. If it has been awhile since you've done that type of repair you might want to do a little practicing. Like all electronic parts the sensor is sensitive to heat damage.

The power supply is the problem here and would need to be looked at. But the new digital conversion is comming out soon so it would not hurt to look at newer tv at this point unless you would like a bill for repair!

Hey, I would definitely recommend trying all the options mentioned above however sometimes it might never work correctly again (the remote control that is) and it might've been a defective remote control to begin with. Anyways, I had a few friends that have been in similar situations, and usually they won't even bother and went on the internet to find a replacement remote control. What they have done and probably what I would do if I was in that situation is head on over to a replacement remote control website like EveryTVRemote.com and look through their directories for that specific model Toshiba 32HFX72, and they should have what you are looking for in stock!

If your Toshiba remote control is compatible, pressing the VCR button should allow you to issue the correct code.

Use code search in your Toshiba URC to find something that works. If a search through all codes stored in the URC fails, you may have to try another one

You have not mentioned the TV model #.. If your TV does not play avi. files I am sorry to tell you it does not support moving pictures -- it only supports MP3 music files and JPEG picture files !!. Try these two to confirm.

How old is the TV? Does it have a marketplace of apps that came preloaded? Is there a search button in that screen? If so search for the app, you can also search for Amazon prime Video App that comes with Hulu.

The TV's main culprits to be causing this problem are "dynamic contrast" which maybe darkening the backl light in dark scenes an example a night time or a dark scene in a movie. To make the blacks be deeper (as LCD/LED TV are rubbish at blacks) or brighten it on bright scenes to make the light be lighter and once again to make the blacks be deeper so the images pop out. Also "eco lighting" this will dim or brighten the image based on the amount of light in a room in order to be saving energy. Ether way the easy fix is to turn both of these features off. You will get rid of the problem and enjoy more subtler shades of colour that would otherwise be bleached (brightend) or crushed(darkend) out..
