Is this TV a Lemon

When I plug tv in, using AC adapter, power light comes on, antenna attached, VCR/TV/DVD switch is set to TV, and press buttons on remote or tv channels-+, menu, display, nothing happens, screen stays black. This has happened before when under warranty, Best Buy repaired, 10 months ago. Is their an easy repair solution, or do I need to take to tv repair shop? Thankyou, hd3dman

SOURCE: Blue light

Okay, I found a fix! Called JVC, spoke to somebody there, here it is:
1)unplug the TV completely, no wall no power strips, completely
2)wait 10 sec
3)plug TV back in and Turn it on, the light will still be doing the same thing
4)wait 30 sec
5)ON THE TV, not the remote, locate the menu, volume (-) and power button.
6)while simultaneously holding down the menu and volume (-) button, pressed the power button ONCE and continue to hold the other 2 for 10 sec.
7)on the remote control, go to menu>settings>system info
*** now this I know as a FACT will work on systems that display: JVC - ver.5.32FO001, but I don't know of any other versions***
8)press the mute button on the remote twice
9)unplugg TV again and wait 10 sec.
10) plug TV in and turn on

It SHOULD be working normally now... Thanx to the guys a JVC support for this one, I know it seems like an obvious first place to look, but sometimes it isn't. I for one checked online forums first.

SOURCE: Sound stays on, but no picture- goes black and stays that way.

This unit should still be under warranty and should be taken in for warranty service. Any attempt to access the interior will void the warranty. It is important that a complete description of the problem like you entered here be taken along when you bring the set in for service. This will insure that the servicer be able to reproduce the problem and resolve it.

From your description (and as a servicer), I would be looking for a component that is heat sensitive. These types of problems are fairly easy to locate and resolve.

Please take this in for warranty service and update this when you find out the details.

Toshiba model 36A43 a Universal remote, a HD Digital Antenna the TV's settings menu no antenna as a auto ch. program search. Has TV/CABLE, I tryed cable didn't set.

I've checked the specs: of your TV. Its original remote control number is "Toshiba CT-90157". This remote control have a slide switch by the left side of it, [a selector switch]; that selects inputs TV, CBL/Sat, VCR, and DVD. You have to select the slide up position to select the TV, to select the TV function by its buttons. Just have to slide one step down to select the input to CBL/SAT; to select the CBL/SAT function by its buttons.
But, without a remote control, you can seect the TV/Video function by its front panel controls. There is press button switch, just right side of its Menu button. For each press of it, the set's input selection will change from TV to Video and vice versa.
Just press this button to select the TV as the input. Then only, the antenna socket at its back will turn effective. If you can't select input by this way, the input selector switch; specified above, has the fault, or the input selector IC inside the circuit board is faulty. Just try this after a Hard Reset to this set, and then check. If it do not help you, contact any service technician, or the authorized service center for Toshiba.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

To program your Comcast remote:

  5. Aim the remote control at your device and press Power once (press the Play key for devices that don't have a POWER button). If the TV turns off, make sure that the VOL+/- and Mute buttons also work. If so, you're all set!

Lost manual to connect the right plugs at the back of T.V, & settings to watch T.V. We have DVD but no T.V. Hope you can HELP. ...

Welcome to FixYa.

All you need to check is that the black cable from your antenna (or cable connection) is connected at the back of your TV. There is only one connection that fits to it.

Next is to make sure that your TV is in TV mode. On your remote, find a button that says TV/VIDEO or TV/VCR or INPUT. Press it repeatedly until it is set to TV.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have a great day.

My tv won't turn on anymore. The power light and the opc light blink twice at the same time and then the opc blinks once and it keeps doing that. Please help!


Make sure the AC cord is not loose or disconnected. Check to ensure the cord is firmly plugged into the outlet at one end, and firmly connected to your television at the other end. The AC cord connects to the television about midway across the back of the set, near the bottom of the back panel. The hole for the AC connection is shaped like a figure eight. Try powering up the TV with the cords firmly connected.

Check the "Main Power" to ensure it is on. Locate the button on the top of the television among the "Volume" and "Channel" buttons. Press the button to switch the television on. If the "Main Power" button is off the remote will not turn on the television. Wait to see if pressing "Main Power" will activate the TV.

Press "TV Power" on the remote control to power up the TV from stand-by mode. If the power light on the front of the television glows red when you press "TV Power" on the remote, press the "Main Power" button on top of the television to remove the TV from stand-by. If the TV is accidentally in stand-by mode it may not come on when pressing certain buttons.

Check the circuit board. If your set still won't turn on and you hear a clicking noise when you plug it in, you most likely have a defective circuit board.

Hi there,

Well you can follow the below steps -
1. Inspect the antenna for any signs of damage. Identify and examine the power adapter cord and the coaxial antenna cable for any rips tears or other defects.
2. Plug the adapter into the antenna's power adapter socket. It will be labeled "12V DC/Adapter". If you are using an antenna that does not require power, such as rabbit ears, you may skip this step.
3. Next connect the antenna cable to the television using the TV's "Antenna In/75 Ohm" input jack. Make sure the antenna connector is twisted tightly into place. Place the antenna on a sturdy surface such as the top of an entertainment center. If you have an older analog TV that is a non high definition ready/capable display and are using a digital to analog converter box, generally, the antenna will plug into the input of the converter and the output of the converter will plug into the antenna input of your TV. 
4. Plug the antenna's power supply into a 120V AC wall outlet. This will turn the antenna on. If you are using the "rabbit ears" style antenna, make sure that the each section of the antenna is fully extended. This will give you the best reception.
5. Turn on the TV and check for digital reception. You will know that you are receiving digital signals because the picture will be clear and free of any analog "snow" or other artifacts. Digital TV channels have DVD quality picture and sound.

Good Luck!!
