Question about Toshiba 36AF62 36" TV

Open Question

Picture-in-picture (PIP) not working properly on toshiba ct 9946

Cannot watch 2 pictures at the same time. All features of PIP seem to work except displaying different channels. The smaller PIP screen activates properly but I only get the main window that I am tuned to. When I attempt to change the main window or the PIP channel the screens become filled with snow. I am following the directions outlined to use PIP from the owners manual. I have cable and I set the toshiba remote to "cable" as indicated in the operating manual. All other features of the toshiba work properly and the cable channels work properly although the only way I can change channels is on the remote provided by the cable company and not the remote provided by toshiba in the "TV" setting on the remote. Perplexed. Thank you.

I uncovered the problem. The "analog tuner" seems to have gone bad. The part is $25 -$36. The set can still be used however. I just removed the coaxial cable from ANT 1 in the back of the TV (this is what I believe has become defective)which was going to a VCR. I then just used composite cables(red,white,yellow)to bring the signal directly to the TV from the cable box, rather than the VCR. All works however, will replace the defective part.

I too would like to know the solution to this question...we are having the identical problem and Sony doesn't seem to know how to fix it. Although, the picture from the DVD player is perfect, the pictures for cable & video games are terrible. Very frustrating!

Mitsubichi VS 45609. When I turn the TV on sometimes it comes on and has beautiful picture and sound. Then after 1/2 or so it goes to a black screen. While on the black screen I am able to PIP it and see...


I have the same TV and what is happing is the TV has 2 recievers in it to allow the PIP, So you have a power pack gone on 1 reciever the other is working, Your set has 2 power packs,1 for each receiver.
I had both of mine go, 150$ a piece to have fixed, good luck.

Picture in picture problem


When you use the Time Warner Digital box, you're using the tuner inside that box rather than the tuner inside your TV to select a channel. Picture in picture TV's have two tuner's inside so you can view two channels, but they can only tune the analog channels from your cable company, and only if it's hooked up in a manner that will permit this to happen.

So you only have one digital tuner (the Time Warner Box) so you can only view one channel at a time even though your TV supports Picture in Picture.

It MAY be possible to have limited use of the PIP if you connect your TV in a different way. Your Time Warner box is most likely connected to your TV set with composite cables, those are the Yellow, Red, White cables. If you buy a coaxial cable splitter and split the cable before it goes into the Time Warner box you can then run a coax cable into both the Time Warner box and the coax input on your TV. This would allow you to tune the analog Time Warner channels with both of your TV's tuners. In my area I think the first 60 channels or so are still available in analog, but there is no way to watch any of the higher premium channels without the Time Warner box.

If you go through these steps and you select the coax input on your TV your PIP will work on the lower channels. It MAY be possible to tell your TV to display the input from the composite cables on one of the PIP screens and the input from the coax on the other, but I kind of doubt it.

I know this sounds complicated and if you're not familiar with the way all this works it is complicated. The reason lots of people won't respond to this kind of question on this site is because there is no easy fix and by trying to help I run the risk of getting a bad rating. I don't get paid for this, I just like trying to help, so if I have not explained this in a way that's helpful to you please ask some additional questions before you give me a bad rating. Thanks.

PICTURE IN PICTURE TV RCA


The PIP puts a smaller picture on your main picture. Usually, the smaller picture is generated by a second source, such as a VCR. The VCR must be connected to the main cable signal and connected to the TV through the red, white, yellow RCA jacks. The VCR picks the smaller picture whilt the tuner in the TV picks the main pucture. The PIP circuits digitally add the smaller picture to the larger picture. The PIP cannot be used to veiw 2 different channels at once on satellite systems because the satellite receiver sends only one channel to the set at a time.

Panasonic CT-36SL13 Can't select video inputs


On a Panasonic to do a factory reset while the set is on press in on the power and action buttons on the front of the TV at the same time. In a few seconds the screen shouls go blank and come up with a screen that says "CHK" in the upper left hand corner. Once it does that press the action button again to clear the screen. You have now reset the TV to factory settings and will have to re-program the channel memory once again. Hope that works...
