Have a Toshiba 36A42 TV. Cannot get video to show on any input. Audio is working fine on each input. Menus show fine and I get a short raster when switching to RF. Appears the tube is fine just lost the video of all inputs.
I have not tried the S video yet(didn't have a cable), but all the other video inputs show nothing.

Re: Toshiba no video sound is fine
If you can see the menus this means the CRT, high voltage, scan amplifiiers, the output video processor, and CRT drive circuits are working. The fault is most likely in the video section of the input select circuits.
Maybe the Toshiba parts department can supply a service manual for your set. With a signal source, a scope, and a DVM, an experienced technician can troubleshoot your set to locate where the failure is occuring.
I have not serviced this model, but in other models I have found the main input select IC to be defective. In some cases I also found a bad voltage regulator IC that supplies the input section has failed.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If your menus are working, it sounds like your input board is not functioning. As the menus work, you might try using the reset command. It is on the System Status/System information menu. You have to toggle to it once the menu shows you the firmware version on the Tv. Might reset the board and get the inputs working again. Best of luck with what will likely be your last toshiba product (I know mine will be the last item with a Toshiba name on it in my house).
The best way to do this is to connect you dish network receiver is directly to the tv. Try to use the best video type possible. HDMI is the best, next is component and lastly is composite. This will take care of the video portion. Next, connect digital audio output to the Kenwood Receiver. I dont know what type of a digital audio output your dish box has, but your kenwood receiver has both optical and coaxial inputs so you should be fine there. Once you have both audio and video wired, change the inputs on both your tv and kenwood receiver to the inputs you are connected to. You might need to set up the kenwood to tell it that your running digital audio to it in the setup menus. Hopefully this helps, let me know if you need any clarification.
If you look real close at the VGA port on the TV, you will see a small mini phone jack 'AUDIO' that is for attaching the audio cable with mini stereo phone plug at both ends, one end is to the TV PC audio input jack, another end goes to the PC AUDIO line out or headphone out.
Which cables have you attached to your TV (the video and audio)?
Does the TV has left & right audio inputs (RCA connectors)?
When you attach a headphone to the laptop, the speakers on the laptop switch off and the sounds divert to the headphones. Try and connect a cable (stereo) from the headphone outlet on the laptop to the audio stereo inputs on the TV.
The proper hookup is antenna or cable into the VCR RF/antenna input, then VCR RF/antenna output to the TV RF input. The hookup you describe means no signal is getting to the VCR.
With some TVs, there can be Video and audio output jacks which can be hooked to the video and audio jacks of the VCR. However this would likely mean you could only record the channel being watched, and, the TV would have to be on.
Make sure that there is sound leaving from the connections on the top box.
Check that the audio cables are connected to the associated audio input for the video at the rear of the set. Make sure that there are no other shared inputs for the same input. With shared inputs, only one can be the default reference for input.
Check the menus in both the top box and the TV set to make sure that all setups are correctly done.
