Toshiba TV Remote Control not working

My remote controls to my Toshiba TV stopped working yesterday. I have three different remotes to the TV, Once in a while I may get it to actually change the channel ,or turn the volume up or down. But it will only do it ramdomly and then it wont do it again. Ive reprogrammed my remotes, and changed the batteries in them, So I dont think thats the problem. Any Suggestions would be appreciated. Thank You. I have a Toshiba 36HFX71 36" TV. The remote doesn't work consistently. I will be working fine one day and the next nothing. The lights all light up and I have changed the batteries several times. I have even taken the remote in to have it cleaned. Any ideas on what else it could be?

    Same circumstances, the reciever on the TV is bad, not the remote. Therefore, that part must be ordered and replaced.

    Same problem and it happened around the same time. I agree that it must be the receiver on the TV. Question now is, where do I buy one and how do I install it?

    My 36" Toshiba won't work with remote. First it was intermittent so I bought a brand new remote but didn't solve the problem. Then it turned into a full time no remote problem. My Toshiba VCR/DVD remote stopped working about a month later. These were out of warranty for about a year, go figure.

    The 36" tv weighs a ton so taking it to the repair shop is a major hastle and my repair guy doesn't like to do house calls. I've got a 15 year old Toshiba TV and VCR as well and it has never been an issue..the problem tv is 36af43 and vcr is sdv391. any advice or is it time to switch brands?

I have an old remote that works for a VCR and I did have it working for the TV but one day someone was playing with buttons and it stopped working. I was wondering how to program my Toshiba vc 260 remote...

Try the following procedure:

1. Make sure there are working batteries in the Toshiba remote control.
2. Turn on your television set, DVD player or other device that you want to control with the Toshiba remote.
3. Find the "Recall" or "Setup" button on the Toshiba remote control. After you find it, press and hold down that button until the lights on the remote control turn on and remain lit.
4. Point the Toshiba remote at the device you turned on in Step 2 and press the button on the remote for that device.
5. Begin pressing the "Power" button on the Toshiba remote. Continue doing this until you have turned the device off using the Toshiba remote. Once it shuts off, press "Enter" on the Toshiba remote. The remote will then be programmed.

My Sharp Aquos TV has stopped responding to remote control(s)

Unplugging my TV for 15 seconds (longer actually - at least a minute) made the remote and the satellite TV remote both work again with the TV.  Thanks for the tip!

Toshiba TV Remote Control not working

I have been seeing a lot of Toshiba remote "eyes" (the infra-red receiver inside the TV) fail recently. If several known good remotes cannot control the TV then the IR receiver will have to be replaced. If you have no experience soldering and unsoldering PC boards then have a qualified tech handle it for you.
