Customer Question

We have a 1999 model Toshiba 32" table top TV. The internal infrared sensor has apparently died. Two remotes don't work, but the TV works fine using on-set controls. Our local technician has not been able to find the correct part. He said he may be able to retrofit a part from another TV for $250 or so. What do you suggest?
