Toshiba Television Remote Suddenly Stopped Working!

The remote to my toshiba flat screen TV was working fine the other day. Power button worked, volume worked, etc.

I don't know if I pushed some buttons on the Comcast remote, but now the Toshiba won't even power on with the remote. I have to manually turn the TV on. I have replaced batteries and know that is not problem. Can something I pressed on the Comcast remote have affected the Toshiba remote?

The Comcast remote would not affect the Toshiba remote. 

 

Post the model of the TV so we can look up a manual for it, and see if anything stands out on the Toshiba remote.

Thanks for your help

Got the manual

 

To start, can you confirm your mode select slide switch at the bottom is slid to the left for TV?

I guess next step is totally unplug the TV for a minute or two, and let it totally reset it'self. 

 

This might keep me up all night thinking what's next...........

Here's a quote from the manual on remote issues

 

Remote control problems

Make sure the remote control is set to the correct device

mode (
page 21).

Remove all obstructions between the remote control and

the TV.

The remote control batteries may be dead. Replace the

batteries (
page 20).

Your TV remote control may not operate certain features

on your external device. Refer to the owner’s manual

for your other device to determine its available features.

If your TV remote control does not operate a specific

feature on another device, use the remote control that

came with the device (
pages 22–26).

If the TV still does not act as expected, use the Reset

Factory Defaults procedure (page 33).

 

So I'd say to do the factory reset procedure next, hope you can access it from the front panel since the remote isn't working.

I cannot follow the steps last explained because the remote does not work.  I can get to Factory defaults using the controls on the side of the TV but cannot go any further.

The TV is working great but just not allowing me to use the Toshiba or comcast remote.
