BASE tv/dvd combo- not toshiba but it looks like this model

The pfoblem is with my tv/dvd combo it's not a toshiba but looks very similar to this model toshiba in the manuual i can't find a country of origin or any kind of contact so here is the problem we were watching regular tv when my 3yr old lent for a moment on the remote and the whole screen suddenly went blue(like it does when you are tuning it) but it has a bright red padlock picture in the corner. i'm assuming it's locked in some way the manual makes no reference to this phenomena it talks only about a parental lock when watching dvds i have tried unplugging it for a time..... i've tried pressing the remote buttons in lots of combinations for different periods of time...10 secs, 20 secs i've tried putting in the parental lock code as mentioned before.... i've taken the batteries out of the remote and put them in... the only thing the remote can do is turn the tv off and on again and there's still a blue screen with a bright red padlock!!!! help rome

    BASE DTC2181. when i first bought the tv in 2007 from a target store north of brisbane ( it is now just two mths out of warrenty) i had no problems. i stoped using it for a while and now it wont turn on. first it went to a blue screen and so i tried to tune it in to no avail. then i turned it off to try again and it sounded like it was turning on but there was no screen. do you think it needs repair or is it beyond fixing?

I have the same problem with my Tv too. There is No phone listing and the number given on the warrant policy is no longer connected. I rang Target and Base is their own brand. If anyone needs it the contact number for Target head office is 1800 814 788.

Press the "on screen display" button down for three seconds. Its the button under the AV/TV button.

I have a DVD stuck in a Toshiba model MW24FN1. I can't even get the DVD door to slide out more than 1/2 inch. Any good ideas? Thank you.


Had same problem. Unscrew the back of the TV. Unscrew 2 screws connecting VCR/DVD from TV Base. Unscrew DVD housing on all sides (approx 6 screws). At this point you can see the detached DVD unit. Facing the DVD drawer. Look under it for a white plastic piece that you can slide to the right that should disengage the DVD's circular rotator from the dvd and slide the door open.

If that does not work disconnect the DVD from the 2 connectors at the TV motherboard. Slide slack into the ribbon cable to free up the case. When the DVD unit is out, dissassemble the black plastic DVD unit. Flip it over and manipulate the white plastic gear which will disengage the center rotator.

Let me know if that works for you.

Connecting dvd/vcr combo with tv and digital cable box.


You trying to put the DVD/VCR combo between the cable box and the TV? OK, cable out goes to vcr in, vcr out goes to tv, I think you got that. Now there should be a tv/vcr button on the vcr/dvd, you need to press that when the unit is on. Also, make sure you are on the correct input on both the vcr and the tv, usually video 1 or AUX and choose line in or L1 on the vcr/dvd. If the tv/vcr button is toggled, itll completely bypass the vcr/dvd player.
