Toshiba 36A43 36" turning off and jumping on certain shows/commercials

In the last two days, the Television began jumping slighty on certain shows and commercials. Especially when there is a commercial that has a lot of writing on it or big words. Now today it shuts down on its own for no reason. Just shuts down and then i have to unplug it and plug it back in to get it back on again. Now when I say jumping it is more like shaking the picture does not move but it becomes shaky . The only thing that recently changed was that I got a upgrade in my satallite box. I have bell express vu and went from a 3100 to a 5900..

Re: Toshiba 36A43 36" turning off and jumping on certain...

I need to know a bit more. Does to sound give any noises when the picture is jumping? Reason is this would suggest the high voltage breaking down, which could be caused by dust or very high humidity, so check the location of the set. If dust has collected inside you need to clean it out with a long artists brush, but beware if you do not know about high voltage danger. Dust can also cause overheating and shutdown. Is it only the satelite box which causes trouble? If so then you may need to alter (attenuate) the input level of the Video signal. Could you contact the dealers?

Certain aspect of my sanyo tv are very blurred

This problem requires adjusting the Focus on the flyback . Turn the tv around and look for adjustmen slots on the back. If you can see them, use a nonmetalic small srewdriver and slighty adjust the top or left one. Be careful, it is the high voltage area

Programming remote to toshiba Tv

Depending on the universal remote you can usually program the remote without knowing the codes. One way is to turn on the television, then follow the basic programming instructions for the remote, but instead of entering a code, hit the power button over and over again until the television turns off.
I hope this helps.

Picture too dark

You didn't say if you are receiving an off air picture or cable or satellite. The reason the commercials look good is because the local station (or source) transmits them "in the clear", that is, without any enhancements to the video signal. Network programing or local newscasts are sent through a device which inserts a reference signal in what's called the "vertical interval". You may have seen this as a series of flashing dots or pulses at the very top of the picture. There's a lot of information packed into the VITS (Vertcal Interval Test Signal). One of the lines contains a reference pulse for video which is set at a certain level. Your TV sees that level and automatically adjusts its circuitry accordingly. What I suspect is that your set is out of calibration and is pushing down the video signal because it is not "seeing" the level properly. A video alignment should correct this and can be done by a good repair facility. Hope this helps.
