Question about Toshiba CX36H60 TV

1 Answer

Toshiba model Cx36H60

Remote stopped working, Replaced batteries then purchased a universal remote ($10.00) and then a remote specifically sold to replace the original ($25.00). Remote will work for a bit and then sometimes after tv is on for as short as 10 minutes to as long as 45 will stop working (changing channels, turning up volume). After waiting from 10 minutes to having to shut tv off the remote will begin to work again. I believe (uneducated) that their is something wrong with sensor.

Yes, I have been seeing a lot of those Toshiba IR receivers bad lately. Replacing it with a new one should take care of your remote problems. If you have never replaced small parts on PC boards then have a qualified tech handle it for you.

What universal remote will work with Maxmade (Azend) BDP-M1061X portable dvd/blu ray player

The Maxmade (Azend) BDP-M1061X portable DVD/Blu-ray player does not have a specific universal remote that is recommended by the manufacturer. However, you may be able to use a universal remote that supports DVD and/or Blu-ray players.
Some popular universal remote brands that are known to work with DVD/Blu-ray players include Logitech Harmony, GE Universal Remote, and RCA Universal Remote. Before purchasing a universal remote, make sure to check that it supports your specific model of DVD/Blu-ray player.
If you're having trouble finding a compatible universal remote, you can also try reaching out to the manufacturer or contacting a customer support representative to see if they have any recommendations.



If it is a universal remote make sure you selected TV and not SAT or another component on the remote.

Make sure the batteries are inserted correctly.


We don't have a remote for the tv-vcr the model is mv13l3

The remote is listed as in stock here: . also has the original remote: .

There are also many universal remotes that will work. Just make sure to research and make sure you select a model that has codes for combination TV/VCR units. Many manuals and code lists are available online from their manufacturer. There are some remotes that do not handle combination units.

RCA remote documentation is available here: . One for All remotes have their documentation here: .

I hope this helps.

HI I have a bose wave music system model AWRCC1 and need a battery for the remote. I need to know what battery I purchase and where I can purchase it.

You can find these just about anywhere batteries are sold.

Replace only with Duracell, Eveready, Energizer, Maxell, Toshiba, or Shun Wo CR2032 or DL2032, 3-volt Lithium battery.

Hello, I purchased my Toshiba TV 27DF46 at a thrift store and it did not have a remote and I cannot figure out how to get my av ports to work. I have tried changing the channel manually and using my...

There are several different options to solve your problem. You should be able to program your cable box remote to replace many (but probably not all) of the functions of the Toshiba TV remote that you're missing. Read the user manual that came with your cable box remote to find out how to program it to control different types of components. It's not very difficult and that would be your least expensive option. Another suggestion is to buy a "universal replacement remote" that are sold in many electronics stores. Once you program those universal remotes, they will perform most/many of the functions of the original (Toshiba) manufacturer's remote. A "universal replacement remote" can cost anywhere from $20 to well over $100 depending on how many electronic components you want to control. My best suggestion would be to buy a replacement remote that was specifically made for your Toshiba model 27DF46 TV. There are many companies on the Internet which sell those remotes specifically made for your TV. The cost is usually between $25 - $35. One last inexpensive option would be if you already have any other Toshiba components (like a Toshiba DVD player), in many cases, the remotes are nearly identical and will provide most or all of the same functions. I would start by trying whichever option makes the most sense for your particular situation. Good luck.

Refuses to work

you are going to have to try a new universal remote because that one is not capable of programming to your tv. not all universals will work. trial and error. your best option sense you need to purchase a new remote is to go to and search my your TV model number and purchase the original equipment manufactured remote for your tv. Good news you wont have to program it either. and it will work your menu functions.

Toshiba TV Remote Control not working

i have bought universal remote controls and they do not work. what can i do? i have bought rca universal philips universal remote,


u can purchase a universal remote from ebayer "genuinecopies" for £7.49 + P&P £1.49

Universal remote codes

NOT A SOLUTION, however my remote stopped working a couple months ago. I subsequently tried several universal remotes - none of these worked. An educated guess might be that the problem is NOT with the remote control unit, but rather something inside the set itself. This might also explain why the MW24FM1 you bought "didn't come with a remote".
