    Thanks.....Toshiba must have been looking to make extra money down the road on Remote replacements....who makes a tv w/o a menu button on TV itself anyways....The TV is in a spare bedroom that is rarely used for guest - not paying $20 for a replacement remote for a TV that's never used. Oh well....

No you need the remote ! and even most universals will not do that function for you either!
You can order an orignal replacment remote from www.remotes.com and that will let you access all of the tvs functions!
I hope I was of big help!

Thank You!

You can buy a universal remote, any best buy will carry one, I have even found cheap ones at dollar tree or dollarama. They come with a manual with the codes for the make of your TV just follow the coding instructions until you find the one that will operate your TV.
Good luck

I have a Toshiba 27AF45 and a RC64 remote control which is not what comes with the TV. It works ok but I cannot figure out how to turn on the closed captioning feature. When I enable the menu I do not see...

Unfortunately, TVs don't always work with universal remotes. The original remote probably had a button to control the captions, and there may not be any other way to access those settings. If you can't find caption control settings using the on-screen menu, you are out of luck. The only options then are to try another brand or model of universal remote that may have a button which will work, or to locate a replacement original remote control.

Cannot access channel 73 on TV2

If you are unable to access the TV menu using the buttons on the TV itself it is possible you can with the TV2 remote if it still controls the volume etc. for this TV. If it doe not you will need to find a code for your set in the manual for the receiver or you can go to the following link to find that info as well.http://tech.dishnetwork.com/departmental_content/TechPortal/content/tech/receiver/625.shtml
Assuming you have control of the volume still press the small TV button on the top left of the remote. Now press the menu button and you may be able to access the TV's menu. If so you need to run a channel scan/auto program the TV. You may need to use the buttons on the TV still to maneuver through the menu.
If you are still unable to access the menu you may need to purchase a universal to access the menu.

No control and the picture is too dark

Not sure what you mean by no control?

Brightness settings on any TV made since the early to mid 90's (besides tiny cheap B&W TVs) will have the settings in an on-screen menu. Sometimes the menu is accessible through buttons on the TV itself, but always accessible through the remote control. If your TV does not have the ability to get to the settings menu from the TV controls itself, you will need the original (or compatible) remote control for the set, there is no other option.

It could also be that the set is just dying; it's an older set, and certainly would be a possibility.

Toshiba MD20FP3 Combo does not turn on. Help!

Not unless you have taken the time to learn all the safety issues concerning the HI voltage safety facts, in the repair of electronics? It sounds like your tv has a problem in the sweep/power supply circuits, and since these sets have NO user serviceable parts< its best too leave these types of repairs to a certified electronic technician. Good Luck
