Question about Toshiba MD20H63 TV

Open Question

My Toshiba television, MD20H63, will not turn on anymore.

I have a Toshiba television, model number MD20H63that on Monday just stopped turning on. When I press the power button,whether it is on the tv itself or on the remote, the power light willturn and it will make a noise but then after about 1 or 2 seconds itjust shuts off. I tried removing the cable cord and then putting it back and that did not help. I also moved the plug that the tv was originally plugged into and that also did not work.

    I have this exact same problem, precisely as described, also with the Toshiba model MD20H63. Once in a while if I hit enough buttons and hold them down I can get a glimpse of a station for a split second before the entire TV shuts itself off. More often, all that happens when I turn the set on is that the power light illuminates for a second or two but nothing comes up on the screen; then the TV turns off. The TV is only a little over a year old and has gotten relatively minimal use - on average, 3-6 hours a week.

SOURCE: remote control not working

Welcome to Fixya! This sounds like the Recieving Mechanist inside the TV is Faulty and needs to be replaced by a Service Center.

If the remote is the original Toshiba remote, it obviously should work the TV. Have you checked to make sure it has good batteries? Also, if old batteries leaked in it at any time there may be corrosion on the battery contacts keeping it from working. Make sure the metal contacts look shiny, not crusty and corroded.

If the remote still doesn't work there are two possibilities. One is that the remote is just bad. You can get a universal remote, set it for Toshiba and try it. It will at least control power, channel and volume functions. If the universal remote doesn't work, the remote sensor in the TV would be the probable cause. Like any other part, they can sometimes fail.

My toshiba 36in crt tv's demo mode keeps turning it self on

Since I do not have your tv model number so can't be specific, check Demo mode option in Menu and turn it off. Some tvs have selection like Store/ Display and Home mode, store or display mode is demo mode so set tv on home mode to turn off demo mode.
Let me know model number of your tv if you have additional question.
