Question about Toshiba 42H81 42" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Remote not working.

Slowly started to stop functioning day by day. One day, 10 of 10 pushing of any button worked. The next day, it was 9 of 10, then 8 of 10 and so on untuil it stopped working altogether. Tried replacing the batteries. This did nothing. Bought a Toshiba-approved replacement remote, to rule out a faulty remote. The replacement remote did nothing as well. What further steps can I take (easiest ones first) to pinpoint the problem? If it is not the remote, I can only ssume it has something to do with the remote sensor in the TV itself, right?

Thanks in advance.

    I have a Toshiba 42H82 rear projection TV, the remote sensor is out. Is this something I can replace myself and if yes, how?

You answered your own question. yes it is with the receiver on the tv. most like the receiver led it self sounds bad. if you take the little black box apart inside you will see a led receiver and an ic you might be able to find one at mcm electronics that looks about the same.

If none of the codes work then do these procedures



1. Searching For Your Code

If you have tried all of the set-up codes for your brand of equipment ,or your brand is not listed, and you are still not able to get the unit to respond, try the following procedure to search for your code.
If you don't find a code that works, the remote will flash four times when you reach the end of all the codes for this device type.

1. PRESS the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.), then RELEASE.

2. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.

3. ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)

4. ALTERNATE slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY instead of POWER)
Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You may have to press this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the entire library of codes.

5. When your device turns OFF, PRESS the SETUP button and RELEASE it to lock in the code for your device.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


2. Learn the buttons from the original

Line up your original remote and the head-to-head before completing the following steps.


1. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.

2. PRESS 9 - 7 - 5, the red LED will flash twice.

3. PRESS the DEVICE key where you wish to learn the function. The next 3 steps must be completed within 10 seconds.

4. PRESS the button that will receive the learned function, the LED will flash rapidly.

5. PRESS the button on the original remote to be learned.

6).
To test the new feature, press and release the device key in which the new feature was learned followed by the key on which the feature was learned
