Question about Toshiba MD9DM1 9 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

TV DVD Combo - Won't come on with the first try of the button or remote...

After repluging into an alternate receptacle and pushing the on/off button (on the front or the remote) about 60-100 times it will come on...but only after I have plugged into an alternate receptacle. After I'm finished watching and turn it off, I am able to turn it right back on. However, after it sits overnight I am back to the same problem. Sometimes it will turn on after the 3rd or 10th try (a rare occassion). Once on, all is fine. I have experienced this problem approximately one month. Any suggestions? Is it worth having repaired? TV was mfg. Oct. 2002 and I've had it since mid 2003. Thanks for your help or suggestions. I love having a TV on my kitchen counter to watch as I cook, etc. Gayle

I have a problem with my thompson tv i can not turn my tv on or off with my romote or my fingers

Did you try unplugging and replugging the set to reset? Checking remote battery? Actuating each remote function (button by button) twice in succession to reprogram? Also, could you have inadvertently de-programmed by pushing the PROG or similar button? Mfrs not uncommonly but that button in the wrong place where users, especially button mashers, are apt to push them trying to turn of the set. The suggestions above might reprogram. Other wise contact customer service for the TV and let them guide you.

No power on vizio E371VL

Vizio TV model E371VL turned on ok and had tv show on ch.4.
Turned on the DVD player and put movie dvd in and closed tray.
We have done thhis numerous of times and never had a problem.
This time " HDMI " was showing on top right of black screen,
then " No Signal " came up on screen, then went completely black screen. Called Vizio, they had me power off and unplug set.
Push and Hold power button on TV for 30 sec. to reset.
Replug set and Vizio (lighted) on lower front of set lighted normally dull orange. Pushed power button on remote and when set did not come on, then push main power button on side of TV. Nothing, no White " Vizio " from orange light. Is this a power supply (0500-0412-1020) problem ? Thanks, Sidney (

I have an advent tv/dvd combo. I dont have a remote and its stuck on video. how can I put it on tv without the remote? thank you

Disconnect the TV\DVD combo from power source (A\C) for two to three days, Replug power cord & see if it returns to normal. 2nd attempt:: Unplug A\C power from wall and take a piece of bear wire or any metal (paper clip, screw driver ) and SHORT the two blades of A\C plug for at least one FULL day.DO NOT PLUG INTO a\c SOCKET FOR ANY REASON !!! After one full day, take the short accross the blades. Replug into A\C power socket. see if that fixes the problem. P.S. Your TV should have a button that switches from TV to DVD play right in the right front.

Remote is not communicating with console. New

When you put new battery in remote you must re sync the remote with the system.To do this you need to take off the back of the remote then push the red button.Their is a red button on the system that you need to push at the same time. This button is in the front or side compartment of the system.After pushing both buttons push the a button on the remote.Do this for all remotes.You my have to do this a few times to get it to sync.
