Re: My rca remote turns the toshiba tv on but it dont...
U are using an RCA remote with Toshiba tv. You are lucky that it even turns the set on. You have different remote frequencies involved and need to use the Tosiba remote or a universal remote that will operate volume, channels and power.

The first step is to make sure you have good batteries in the remote. The ones included tends to be cheap and you have no idea how old they are. Here is the manual, page 12 explains how to use the remote and the next few pages cover the initial setup and scanning of channels. http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/file/download/resource/file/23089/39al900a%20owner's%20manual.pdf
If the remote is still not working, get a universal remote to replace it. This link gets you the codes to program the universal to work with your TV. http://codesforuniversalremotes.com/universal-remote-control-codes-toshiba-tvs/
My TV 40RV525U changing channels, menus itself for few months ( I use antenna). my son tried to stop the channel scrolling by enter weird number into the channel to stop it scrolling such as 555, 777.. later, it turn on off by itself and unable to hold on a channel I
call Toshiba customer service and they ask money $25 for
troubleshooting but I denied since I do not want to waste money and
Now, I found how to fix it myself.
In my case, something was wrong with the signal comes from the button control on the left side of the TV. ======================== What I did ======================== unplug the power cord. Remove back cover. Look into the motherboard ( biggest green at the center).
I disconnect a connector on the motherboard come from the IR board that
receive the wireless signal control ( meaning the remote is disable). I turn on the TV, press on Menu button on the TV side. Menu is still scrolling.
I turn off TV, disconnect power cord and connect the IR connector back to the motherboard. I then disconnect the nearby connector that comes from the side control buttons.
Turn on the TV by remote, press menu button on the remote to check. The menu stays.
I use electric tape to seal off the connector and let it hanging there. Close the TV back panel
I have been watching TV for 3 nights without menus/channels scrolling. NO AVAILABLE red message when watching DVD is no longer existed.
Some tv remotes will do this if the TV is programmed to skip all but one channel (or the last scan for channels had only one active channel - like a tv connected to a set top box (3,4,60)).
See if you can navigate to other channels by typing in a channel number. Also check if the Tuner is the current source of the video signal by pressing the Source or Input button. If you have a menu button on the TV or the remote, try rescanning channels or editing the channel list.
