If your remote control still does not work properly
There are four conditions that can cause a remote to function improperly :

To determine which of these conditions is causing your problem, follow these steps:
- Open the battery compartment on the back of the remote and remove both batteries.
- Press and hold any button on the remote for 20 Seconds.
- Release the button and reinsert the batteries properly.
Important : Make sure to insert the batteries properly.
- If the remote works, there was a glitch in the remote that was cleared when you discharged the remote in the prior step. If the remote does not work, continue on.
- Replace the batteries in the remote with new batteries.
Important : Make sure to insert the new batteries.
- If the remote works, your original batteries are dead. Continue using with new batteries. If the remote does not work, there may be something wrong with the remote or with the remote sensor on the TV. Continue on.
- To test the remote control and the remote sensor, perform one of the following tests: Digital Camera test or Another remote on this TV.
Digital Camera test using a phone camera
If you have any digital camera (including a phone camera), you can test any remote. To test the remote, follow these steps:
- Turn your camera on.
- Aim the remote at the lens of the camera from about 6-10 inches away.
- Press any button on the remote. You will see the Infra Red eye of the remote flashing on the LCD screen of tour camera if the remote is working properly.
- If the above test indicated the remote is working, the problem is in the remote sensor on the TV. If the above test indicated that remote is not working, you have a defective remote.
Test Another Remote on this TV
If the TV has another remote that is known to work on this TV, you can test that remote on the TV. To test a second remote on the TV, follow these steps:
- Make sure that the second remote is in the TV mode.
- Press [Power] on the remote and see if it turns the TV on.
If the TV turns on, the problem is in your Toshiba remote. If the TV does not turn on, the problem is in the remote sensor.
