This is a problem with the low voltage condition in the main power supply or the sweep supply, or there is bad capacitors in the vertical driver circuit, or the PIP circuit if there is one. the best way to troubleshoot this would be with a schematic, measure all the voltages and see if there are any lower then normal levels. In the vertical and PIP circuits, you will need an ESR type capacitor meter. if you dont own this equipment, or have had no experience working on solid state electronics, play it safe and call in a tech to assist you in this repair. Good Luck Please dont forget to rate this thread.

How do i set my Toshiba ct-90157 remote to watch dvd's

Most DVD players are connected to one of the rear audio/video inputs--hook to that input and select it on the TV--then hit play and if connected correctly you will see the movie.

Tv/video switch won't switch

The model indicated is a older Toshiba rear projection(if another brand/model let me know)

You should be able to select the rear inputs either via the remote (original one) or with the input (video) button on the set.

If in the menu they are grayed out--it means they have been locked out.

Failing that a serious problem exists in the set's microprocessor.

Hint: if you have not tried it UNPLUG THE SET FOR A WHILE TO SEE IF WHEN YOU PLUG IT BACK IT WILL RESET and restore the inputs.

40H80 Problem TV will not switch to non antenna inputs

Sounds like you have a bad tuner. It is not uncommon for solder joints to deteriorate over a period of time and loose continuity. If you are handy with a soldering iron, you can try to fix it yourself but I really recommend leaving it to a professional.
