As per the previous troubleshooting forum, if there is no input available to select, how is that easy if everything is highlighted in red, except the language and one other option that allows you to select movies, news, sports and manual. By selecting manual, it allows you to change the tint, color, etc.

Re: My tv is stuck on video
I do not know your original problem.
If you are inputting video by the Scart connector the television will automatically read that input because the Scart has a priority, pin 8 I think, which will be at 12 volts when the video is not in standby.
Unplug the scart lead and the TV should revert to Recieved channels.
If this is cable connected, ie. not via an aerial, then I have not an answer, try the cable company.

There could be several things that can cause this:
1. There are no analog channels in your area.
2. Check the menu setup and verify that you select the proper input (antenna, cable, etc).
3. The TV tuner is defective
Try using the composite input on the TV (there are normally 3 jacks per input). Yellow for video and red and black for audio. If you dont have the proper cable, pick one up in you local 99 cent store or an electronic store.
Connect the "output" of your device (VCR, cable box, Tivo, dvd player, etc) to the "input" on the TV. Then use your TV remote to select the proper input.
Hopefully this helps. Good luck.
That particular TV has both "component video" and standard video inputs. The DVD player might have a component video output (it will be three separate connectors of three different colors.) You will need a component video patch cable available at most electronics stores. If your DVD player doesn't have that input then use the standard video connector, yellow wire connects the video out on the DVD player to the Video input on the TV. The red and white wires are the left and right stereo audio connections they also make a cable for that. It will be color coded so make sure you match the codes from the output to the input on the TV. This set has two video inputs, you will get your best resolution if you use them instead of a "channel" input.
You will need the remote to select the video 1 or video 2 inputs. You can connect your DVD player and your game at the same time. Just use video 1 for the DVD and video 2 for the game. They require the yellow, red and white connector cables. Just follow the color code and match the colors with the jacks on the TV and other units. There is actually a third video input Video 3 behind the little door on the front panel. That would be convenient for the game if you want to remove it easily when not in use.
Push the menu button on the remote (big button in the middle) go to the video function and select either Video 1 for your DVD, Video 2 or 3 for your game.
The correct video input for what you want to view is important. Also if you don't have the user's manual it's available for free here: http://tacpservice.toshiba.com/ConsumerProductSupport/Manuals/TV/2003/32A33_32_36A43%28E%29_A.pdf
You might also need to download an Adobe Viewer which allows you to read .pdf files. That is also available for free at: http://get.adobe.com/reader/
If you already have malware protection (viruses and the like) un-check the MacAfee box so you don't download that too.

Select the appropriate channel(usually 3 or 4) and use the cable box's remote control for channel selection. VIDEO: select from available inputs when you have connected video equipment and you want your TV fixed to it.
usually a tv that doesn't "see" video on the S-video will not even "switch" to it. It just goes to the next Svideo, RCA etc..
Make sure your cable is not damaged. (on both ends) Does the svideo source and svideo cable work with another tv or video device?

I have this same TV. The DVD player is either hooked up to the video or
s-video input. Go to the Menu (either through the remote or from the
front of the TV) and select the Setup option. Go to the part where it
asks if you want to use a DVD player. Select yes. Then select Video
Input. Exit the Setup. When you hit the DVD button, it will switch to
the Video input. The second step is to go into the Menu and select
Channel, then go to Video Input Source. From there, select which input
you are using for your DVD player, the S-Video or the standard Video
(yellow composite cable).
