Remote Sensor Repair

Do anyone know how to replace the remote sensor on the 36A41? I am not sure if I can pop off the cover on the front of the TV to install. I don't want to break it if that is not how to get to it. I tried everything from replacing the batteries, cleaning the cover to the sensor. The cable repair man told me that it was more than likely the sensor on the TV.

Before condemming the infared remote receiver, make sure that you have tried and original toshiba remote control. Sometimes universals do not always work. If you do have to replace the (IRR), the main circuit board or the button assembly must be removed. The part is soldered in and has only three wires. The approximate cost of the part is around $20. You local service center would probably charge you $80 to $100 for the repair. If you have already tried a number of universals, the chances are that the(IRR is defective). Also try the code search on the universal remote sometimes this will work. Scrivitron

If you are afraid of hurting the television by attempting a fix yourself you may want to have it looked at by a professional

My remote stopped turning on tv I have to do it manually

Ah, but do the other buttons on the remote still do things like change the channel.

First, cover the basics. That includes making sure no physical object is blocking the path between the remote and the TV. Anything sitting in front of a sensor?

Next, has anyone pressed a device button on the remote where signals are being diverted to a DVD or other device rather than to the TV or cable box?

Next, is the battery in the remote dead? Has it been jarred out of its housing so that it is no longer powering the remote?

Next, has anyone been trying to program the remote for any other TV system? Codes change across brands.

If you have a bad remote, a replacement universal remote may be useful. Can the remote turn the cable box on and off, independent of the TV?

The above are things to check and eliminate. The manufacturer itself may sell a replacement remote if all else fails.

T.V. remote sensor not working

Hello
If you are sure that the fault is with the remote sensor of your TV, replace it with a new one. The remote sensor can be located just behind the remote sensor window at the front panel of the TV. You nave to open the TV to access it. It is a three solder terminal component. It will look somewhat like this, having brownish black in colour. This component can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shopw at your town; very cheap to buy too. OK

Toshiba 36A41 pops when I change the channel and I can not adjust color, brightness, etc,and remote does not turn off tv.

The symptoms you describe is the main processor controller is about to fail, when that happens the tv will eventually become unuseable. if the set is more than 5 to 10 years old you will be further ahead to replace the set.

Remote Sensor on TV Doesn't Work and Can't Manually Adjust Menu

I just realized that there is no usb port on this tv. Called tech support at vizio since I'm still under warranty. They're sending a new remote. I know it's not the remote because neither the verizon nor the vizio remote works, although the vizio remote will intermittently work if I'm one foot away from the sensor on the tv and holding the remote on a downward angle. Tech support says they will send a new remote to rule that out before they send a tech over. I'll check the posts to see if you find a solution when I finally get the tech guy out here. If not, I'll let you know what he does.

Good luck.

Remote sensor in the TV

First Inspect the remote batteries. also make sure TV is not on a LOCK ON option... now, the sensor is a small smoothly part near the TV front buttons, you can clean it carefully FYI, exposing unit remote sensor to direct fluorescent or outdoor light may cause signal interference.
