Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba model # 46HM94P we just got a new Digital box from the cable company. All of a sudden we can't get the TV to come on. We use the remote to turn the TV on and it clicks, and shuts itself off and on, and off and on. No picture, or sound, just flashing green and red light and clicking itself off and on. HELP.

    So you don't think it is the TV, it might be the cable box? I did call the cable company and they had me unplug the box for about 20 seconds, and plug it in and turn it on. It booted itself and then I tried to turn it on with the remote, like they told me to and the tv still didn't come on.

    I am having the same problem. Suddenly the tv just keeps shutting off and on. I cannot see any picture, but have sound. I have unplugged the tv for at least 12 plus hours. This a.m. the problem continues.

Is this model digital? My cable company tells me they will not transmit to non digital sets without additional box. Do I need this?


This TV is an older model with an NTSC tuner (OTA and CATV (analog). You will need a set top box with the digital cable system.

The law didn't require ATSC tuners in 13" TVs until 2007 and the TV was listed at Amazon in 2002. The law requiring the digital transition didn't pass until 2006.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I have a black screen. Cable company says I have


This is a common problem with Cable companies when they update their firmware. This makes the two incompatible. You can try going onto www.samsung.com and look for firmware updates for your model. Follow the instructions provided. If this does not work then you have a bad cable box. Cables companies are notorious for blaming the tv. Don't let them fool you. Stand your ground and insist on them correcting the problem.

New Toshiba 37" flat screen always displays Closed Captions. Feature is turned off with TV remote, feature not available on Cable remote. Toshiba says it is Cable company problem, Mediacom cable can...


I've had this problem for a bit, it seems that there are two ways to turn off the closed captions.
1:Menu--->Preferences--->CC and Digital Audio Selectors. This displays the menu on the bottom of the screen with the choices of Closed Caption formats and digital audio. This is not the correct menu to be in. This turns off the CC as long as the TV is not turned off or the input is not changed. This is a temporarily either turns the CC on or off.
The Solution:
2:Menu--->Setup--->TV Settings--->Closed Captions Settings Displays a menu in the center of the screen, with the options of Turning the Closed Captions on and off, the Analog CC Mode and Digital CC settings. You must turn the Closed Captions off in this menu or the changes to CC are temporary.
For the record:
1. I'm aware I'm 2 years late on this, but I just want others to be able to solve this issue on their Toshiba. Don't worry, my Toshiba is the same age as yours
2. I've lost faith in Tech Support ages ago. I'm sorry that they were that incompetent.
3. Its ridiculous that there are two entirely different menus to alter the closed captions. Took me forever to figure this out.
Hope this helps you and others.
