Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

Trying to install my TVconverter box, I pulled out from the shelves big speakers, records, binders, etc., & crawled on hands & knees into the shelves to put one end of a cable into the antenna on the wall, & the fell down when I was trying to put the other end of the cable into the c/box! I put my head into the shelf & finally got the c/box back up on the TV. Then I tried to turn on the TV, & it said, "no signal". So now, my TV won't work. I haven't had any TV for 3 weeks. I am 87 yrs. old.

Try swapping the cables going into the rear of the converter, you may have the incoming cable going to the output of the box and the cable to the tv in the input of the box.

You will need to run the setup to allow your converter box to detect your local channels. You may have a "Setup" button, or may have to get to it through a "Menu" button on the converter box remote.

Not exactly a new set----check in menu that speakers did not get switched to off---

If using a box or receiver unplug them and the set from power for a while and plug them back to allow the set and the box etc to try to reboot.

This set should also have a soft reset--if it does with set on: menu,1,2,3, enter.

I need help installing

  1. Step 1 Take 2 to 3 people and carry the rear projection TV into your house. Once you have the big box inside, utilize the casters on the bottom to slide the television on the hard floor into the room you want to use.
  2. Step 2 Find the rear speakers-for optimum sound you will want to attach these speakers at ear level.
  3. Step 3 Determine which kind of cable you will need. There are 3 types: coaxial, S video, audio/video cable.
  4. Step 4 Select the type of cable you need-you will have to find out what type of cable has been installed in your home--standard coaxial cable or 300-ohm twin lead cable.
  5. Step 5 Decide if you need a cable box to continue the connection process. Some cable companies send out scrambled signals so you are forced into renting their descrambler.
  6. Step 6 Set cable to "On" in the channel set-up menu.
  7. Step 7 Program your remote to the Toshiba rear projection TV-this will allow you to control the on/off button and volume control.

Have a samsung Samsung LE26A456C and a toshiba dvd recorder. Have set up telly fine, set up video to play fine but cannot record

What is it that you are trying to record? If you are trying to record a DVD you have purchased onto a DVD-R, you will almost always run into a problem because most purchased DVDs have copyright codes burned into them, making them unrecordable. Most VHS tapes have these copyright protection codes in them as wel. If you are trying to record a television show, and are unable to do so, make sure that the DVD that you are using is compatible with your burner. If your burner is set up to record only DVD-R, then you must use only the DVD-R discs. If your burner is set up to record only DVD+R, then you must use only the DVD+R discs. Some burners will record both the DVD-R and DVD+R. If you have the right discs for your burner, make sure that the discs are correctly formatted to be recorded. Also, make sure that if you are recording from a cable box or other input that you have the correct unput channel selected on the burner. If these suggestions don't work, then it could be the brand of DVD that you have purchased (i.e. Sony,Maxell,TDK,Fuji,etc.). Check your manual for acceptable brands. I hope this helps you out. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Good Day, hdj2269808;
The best way to reset any electronic device is to unplug the power from it's source. Most A/C devices require at least 4 minutes; that includes: TV's, Cable Box, Sat Box, U-Verse Box and etc. Battery operated devices remove battery and re install; like cell phones and etc.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Audio problems

Good Day, corilyn;
Several things that you may try:
1. Unplug TV and Cable/Sat box for 3-4 minutes, plug all back in, that's resetting the devices.
2. Some boxes have volume controls, make sure 'box' volume are turned to max.
3. Go into TV's customer menu, go to audio section, make sure speakers are turned on/ set to internal speakers.

Good Luck, Big Irish.
