In my opinion, you should not have to give them the remote number, but you can look this up by contacting the customer service website of Toshiba, giving them the model number of your tv..and explaining your situation...also check eBAY for remotes.

That is certainly unusual for a remote receiver to go bad unless it was struck directly or exposed to damage. Anyway.... the procedure obviously involves getting to the PCB to replace the module. I've not worked on that exact model, but all CRT televisions are similar, and that one is made by Orion.
There really are two options: Front and back.
You can go in the back way, by removing screws and such until you can pull the rear housing off. Make sure you first unplug the unit for about 15 minutes. Leave it unplugged.
If you are uncomfortable doing this, then, please, buy a new TV.
I STRONGLY suggest that you discharge the main capacitor by grounding the anode. If you don't know what this means, then buy a new TV. You don't need a special tool, just a long, flathead screwdriver grounded with a wire to an earth ground will do. If your are afraid of getting shocked, buy a new TV.
The CRT will be mounted in a chassis attached to a main PCB at the bottom. It will be screwed to the housing face. You will have to separate the chassis/board from the face of the housing also, being careful to remove all the screws around the front input assembly. The housing removal is quite easy, but it will take time. You will then be able to locate the IR module at the front of the board. Carefully de-solder it and install the new one. Reassemble.
Somethings I would do before I undertook this venture:
Be ABSOLUTELY sure that the IR module is at fault. Not the remote.
Check the IR module for 5V at Vcc to rule out a faulty IC.
Confirm replacement module is similar in pin-out, freq. (bandwith), voltage
Reserve a good afternoon block of weekend time.
Chill some brews.
Create a large work space if you don't have a bench. And if you do have a bench, clear some space.
Be prepared to be without this TV forever, because everyone screws up sometimes.
The front inputs may give a bit of trouble. Take it easy there if you wish not to break anything.
If you are afraid to open the back. You could always go in the front. Unplug. Dremel a hole under the IR module using a depth limiter. Remove Vcc from existing module. Piggy back new module. Tada! Cake. Remember that is you put it under the board, the pins will be reversed.
If you are careful enough, after the anode, there is not much to screw up besides some broken plastic or bent front inputs.

Unless the TV has a front-panel menu button and allows you to switch modes from there, you are out of luck. There are two possibilities. One is to try another replacement remote. If you get a universal remote made by the TV manufacturer (Magnavox), it may have buttons that will work. The other option is to purchase an RF converter, which will cost around $15. This will take the video/audio signals from the game and convert it to a channel 3 or 4 signal you can then tune in on the TV. The picture won't be quite as bright and clear as with direct AV input, but it will do the trick.

I have a Philips universal remote. After trying half of the codes for Philips TVs, I came up with one which allowed access to the SETUP menu. It was 0621. This allowed me to run the auto channel setup, as well as fix some of the other functions. I don't know if this works with all remotes, but if you try different codes, you should get lucky. I'm sure it helps if you have a SETUP button on your remote.

Have just read up on this. It seems you have to hold the - volume on the front of the TV at the same time as the no 7 on the remote for 5 secs to reset the PIN number.

SOURCE: no signal
I had a similar problem, and my solution was this: I pressed menu on my TV and using my universal remote, went into setup, and then channel search (or near to that), at which point it began searching for analog and digital channels. This can take up to approx. 30 minutes. I suggest you occupy yourself while waiting; it is a sluggish process.
If you want assurance, your TV will have the majority of analog channels (basic cable), and a couple digital. I am basing this wholly on my experience, however. Once finished, it should switch immediately so a channel. Mine was a weather station.
I hope this is successful in helping you and those in the future.
