Question about Toshiba 32AF42 32" TV

1 Answer

Any Remote Control for my TV does not work!

Hi, couple of months ago both of my remote controls, the one that came with the TV and my DISH network remote control (programmed to work with my TV) have stopped working. Once in a while they will work but in most cases they will not. I have precluded that this is not a remote control problem, because both of them exibit the same problem, so it has to be a TV problem. I have replaced batteries in both, took them apart and cleaned them up to no affect. Has anyone else experienced the same problem? I have even turned all of my equipment off in the living room and just left the TV on, still no result. Satellite remote control functions work, but not the TV ones. Please help, this is really annyoing me now.

    I have the exact same problem. It is not a remote or IR window needing cleaning problem. Unplugging the set for a period of time or manually toggling the set power button a few times seems to reset the problem for a while. Also the programming lang keeps changing itself to a foreign lang. It is definitely a software/firmware problem. How to download and "reflash" the firmware could be helpful.

If you're sure the proper codes have not been lost in both your remotes, then possibly the IR receciver in you TV has gone bad. Stargazer

    The IR receiver is a little "box" about 1/2 in. cube with three leads to mounted usually on the front control board.
    Leads are : Signal, Ground,& 5 volts.
    IF you can locate this receiver, there is usually "window" covering the front but lets the IR signal through. This window may need cleaning.

No,the Dish Network satalite box signals require it own remote for it INFER RED INPUT and INFER RED OUTPUT signals.Call Dish Network customer service ask for a another original Dish Network remote.U pay $5 or $6 dollars a month for the satalite box as rental.They should wave the fee or charge u very little for a another remote.

What is my tv code for programming my dish network remote.


Welcome to FixYa!

You can use these codes to program the Dish remote control to your Sanyo DS32920:
542, 589, 590, 591, 592,609

You may also try Power Scan Instructions. Please follow the steps bellow.

1. While at the TV locations (TV1 or TV2 depending on which key is installed), point the remote at the TV. Press and hold the TV MODE button on the remote until all four MODE buttons at the top of the remote light up.

2. Press the RECEIVER POWER button on the remote.

3. Press the UP ARROW on the remote, about one press every two seconds. Stop as soon as the TV turns off. This process may take several minutes.
4. Press POUND (#) on the remote. The TV MODE button will flash three times.

5. Press TV POWER on the remote to turn on the TV. Press VOLUME on the remote to confirm the remote controls the TV. If this does not work, return to Step 1.

Keep me posted.


Ihave a nexxtch remote control and I would appreciate your help to find the code.My tele is call orion.

Hi ladyebird,

Are you trying to program your nexxtch remote to control your receiver? If so, unfortunately you wouldn't be able to set it up like that. Only the DISH Network remote will operate the receiver. You can set up the DISH remote to control your Orion TV by holding the clear TV button until the 4 mode lights flash and then enter a code (from the website provided below) and then hit #. If the code is successful the TV light will flash 3 times.

Here is the website to obtain the code and will also list the instructions:

Hi deidrapleasmy name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I was going over your post and thecodes for your 52" Sharp Aquos are 628, 739, 521, 629, 741, 679, 112, 605, 625,111, 608, 740, 526, 585, 607, 652, 654, 655, 658, 669, 670 and 674. I will sendthe link to help with the setup for the remote to TV.

Light comes on but nothing happens

You need to replace the remote more than likely. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Cannot control Vip222 with sling classic

I have read elsewhere that Slingboxes required the Dish Network receivers to be set to Primary Remote Address 1.

To try a fix:

Using the Dish Network Remote Control -
1. Press menu 2 times to get to system info page
2. In the system info page the Primary Remote Address is in a white box (bubble) followed by a Green TV (1)symbol that says IR and indicates the channel to which remote control 1 is configured.

If the Primary Remote Address of your Dish VIP722 Remote control 1 is not set to channel 1, here is how to change it:

1. While displaying the system info page, press and hold the SAT button on your dish network remote until all other modes are flashing, about 3 seconds.
2. then press the '1' button on the numeric pad of your dish remote
3. then press the '#' button on the numeric pad of the dish remote
4. then press the 'record' button (red dot button - stores setting)
5. At this point you should see a number 1 in front of the primary remote address on the dish system info page

Ensure you enter the corresponding IR code into your slingbox remote control per the instructions in the Slingbox documentation.

Try 627 for Vizio TVs - that should work on the Dish remote.
