Re: Toshiba 36AF62 36"
The most likely problem is worn contacts in the remote itself unless the batteries are weak or not making good contact in the remote. You could try a inexpensive programmable remote or order another original Toshiba remote part number 23306263 (I found one listed on www3.sears.com for $28.96 plus shipping). Sometimes remotes get liquid spilled on them and some of it will seep inside and cause problems later like the one you are experiencing.

1. Make sure there are working batteries in the Toshiba remote control.
2. Turn on your television set, DVD player or other device that you want to control with the Toshiba remote.
3. Find the "Recall" or "Setup" button on the Toshiba remote control. After you find it, press and hold down that button until the lights on the remote control turn on and remain lit.
4. Point the Toshiba remote at the device you turned on in Step 2 and press the button on the remote for that device.
5. Begin pressing the "Power" button on the Toshiba remote. Continue doing this until you have turned the device off using the Toshiba remote. Once it shuts off, press "Enter" on the Toshiba remote. The remote will then be programmed.
I am not familiar with the Time Warner remote, but Tivo remotes require pressing "tv power" and the "Tivo" button at the same time to program them. Maybe you are pressing one a little ahead of the other.
If the remote is the original Toshiba remote, it obviously should work the TV. Have you checked to make sure it has good batteries? Also, if old batteries leaked in it at any time there may be corrosion on the battery contacts keeping it from working. Make sure the metal contacts look shiny, not crusty and corroded.
If the remote still doesn't work there are two possibilities. One is that the remote is just bad. You can get a universal remote, set it for Toshiba and try it. It will at least control power, channel and volume functions. If the universal remote doesn't work, the remote sensor in the TV would be the probable cause. Like any other part, they can sometimes fail.
press mute on the remote once and then press and hold mute and menue at same time.
An S' will appear on screen.
now you are in the service menue
press key number 9 on your remote this will perform a self Diagnostics
if this dosent work
press and hold volum on front of tv set then press 9 onthe remote.
power set off then on
youe should be reset.
Try these simple trick to find out your remote control working or not....
Point the remote control towards the Camera of a Mobile Camera
phone,with the camera on. While pressing remote, we can see a light
(Infra Red) coming from its IR LED through the Mobile Camera if the
Remote is working.
otherwise, the problem with the Remote sensor or related components of the TV.
You could have gotten an electrical surge that put your set into a shutdown condition and unplugging the set and letting the Microprocessor reset will fix this problem if it dosent blow out the main power regulator as you still or might I say have a regulator IC problem. IF THIS PROBLEM HAPPENS AGAIN MORE THEN A FEW TIMES WITHIN A SMALL TIME FRAME I WOULD HAVE THE SET LOOKED AT BEFORE THE REGULAOR BLOWS SOMETHING OUT!!!!
