Frequently Asked Questions

Can you operate a Toshiba TV without a remote?

On top of that, a universal remote can be a smart investment as you can operate multiple devices around your house with it. One thing to note is that it’s not necessary that the first code you enter will work, so some patience is required as you’ll have to try different codes, or you might even luck out on the first try.
