    I don't have the VCR or Cable Box attached. My daughter rolled over on the remote, and the TV has been 'locked' since. The face buttons don't work at all. The only buttons on the remote that work are the display button (shows which channel I'm NOT watching), and the power button. I currently have it unplugged, hoping it will reset. I will try the suggestion below when I get home. Thanks.

Try holding the display button for 10 seconds, worked for mine, unless the vcr presents a different issue

Toshiba TV colours wrong pink sky, blue clouds and green people??


Inside your TV there is like a loop of insulated wirings the loop around the screen. This is to demagnetized the tube. There is a varistor which looks like a thick coin with two leads on it, or sometimes it looks like a flat ceramic capacitor that control this loop of wire. When you first turn on your TV current goes through the loop of wires to demagnetize the TV then the varistor shuts off. Sometimes this varistor fails, causing smeard colors. You can also demagnetize the screen without opening the TV. Using a hand held demagnetizer. It can be purchased at some electronic parts store.

Padlock, blue screen


Somehow in handling the remote control I pushed a button or combination of buttons and now have a blue screen with a lock symbol in red in the top left hand corner. I've tried turning the tv off, and unplugging it, as well as a combination of buttons on the remote, but it still is there.
What do I need to do to remove the lock?

Red to pink screen after 5-10 minutes of play....


This is not the tube, it's most likely the colour controller and system function ic has gotten scrambled, taking this to a tech to re program should not cost more than about $150 AU

Colour stain


Hi.

Yes it is A degause fault caused by either something magnetic being close to tv screen EG hifi speakers.
Or faulty degause thermistor, Or degause thermistor is not making good contact with pcb & only requires resoldering to pcb.
Allso try turning tv completely off at the mains switch leave a few hours then switch back on.
If you decide to take to A repair shop this repair is not expensive.
