    Hello all,

    yes, I already ordered a new remote. i really thought that was the problem. :confused: I paid extra for the EXACT one that came with my tv orginally. :mad:

    here is the model number : MW24FM1 ... want to see what it looks like, go here : http://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-MW24FM1-24-Inch-Screen-TV-DVD-VCR/dp/B000065UWG

    so, I would rather fix this one than get a new one, because of the $$$ for what I would want out of a new tv, but really, it would be the cost of 3 devices. :eek: Plus, I really like this one. :rolleyes:

    from what I can find out through calling toshiba, and a couple repair places, it sounds like it is the eye which reads the signal from the remote.

    Anyone have any idea how to replace this on this style of tv? Anyone had one of these? Anyone have any idea how I could get the part number if I could figure out how to replace it myself?

    repair will cost me $125 to $200....from what i can gather....

    thanks so much for any input

    You will need to disassemble the tv enough to get to the circuit board behind the front panel.
    The component behind the lens for the remote is what you are after. (usually 3wire square with a bump in the middle sometimes with a metal housing) The part number may be on it.
    Then you would need to De-solder it and solder a new one in it's place.
    This SHOULD be the part you need but there is no picture.
    If you can or know someone who can solder the part and remember how to put the tv back together it is a $20 repair.
    Hope this helps.
