Question about Toshiba TP50G60 50" Rear Projection Television

Broken Antenna Port

I purchased a used tv and didn't realize the ant 1 cable port was broken off. I tried switching the cable to ant 2 and switched it in set-up mode, nothing but snow. I opened the back of the TV and I see the silver cable port box. I see the electronic board is chipped where ant 1 port was. Can I purchase this part, what is it called, can I attempt to repair this myself?

If you have already identified where the connection was on the board you will have to access the board to be able to solder back to the points where the old connector was. Once you have identified the two solder points (One should go to ground and the other if you can with the tv on touch it and see if a picture tries to come in or get rid of the snow). Then buy a matching transformer from radio shack or Home Depot, Lowes. Normally this would go on the outside antenna. But you want to take it and clip and strip the ends that have the forks. Solder this to the board, one to ground and the other to the point that would have been center on the old broken piece. This will have a 72 ohm or a connection that your antenna will connect to.

    The matching transformer usually goes onto the antenna outside and the cable hooks to it. But you will use it inside. Clip the forks and strip the ends to solder to your area that the connector was missing. The transformer as it is called looks like a tube with male threads on one end and flat cable with two forks on the other end.

    Here is a link to a picture of one on Radio Shack: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index....

    Let me know if this helps.

Just bought a 55" Lg Led tv and i hook up hdmi from cable box to tv hdmi 1 and hdmi from my blue ray player to the tv hdmi 2, ok then i turn the input on both now hdmi 2 work but hdmi 1 has no signal why...


try connecting your blue ray player to HDMI 1.
A) If it works there, then you know the port on the TV is OK & the problem is with either your HDMI cable or your cable box.
B)If it still doesn't work then you may have a problem with the port on your MAIN PCB. if it's a new TV your warranty will cover that as long as the input connector is not physically broken.

How do you connect a VCR and a Cable Box to a DAEWOO TV that only has one Cable (ANT) connectionn on the back?


The antenna is normally connect to the VCR, which should have ant. IN, and OUT which goes to the TV. If the TV has HDMI input you would connect the cable box that way. You can also get a TV signal switch box, 2 in, 1 out, with a remote to switch it with.

How to program with cable using remote


Hello

1 Find and disconnect the cable that is connected to the

ANT IN terminal on your cable box.

? This terminal might be labeled "ANT IN", "VHF IN" or

simply, "IN".

2 Connect this cable to a two-way splitter.

3 Connect an Antenna cable between an OUT terminal on

the splitter and the IN terminal on the cable box.

4 Connect an Antenna cable between the ANT OUT terminal

on the cable box and the B-IN terminal on the RF(A/B)
switch.

5 Connect another cable between the other OUT terminal on

the splitter and the A-IN terminal on the RF (A/B) switch.

6 Connect the last Antenna cable between the OUT terminal

on the RF (A/B) switch and the ANT IN (AIR/CABLE)

terminal on the back of the TV.

After you have made this connection, set the A/B switch to the

"A" position for normal viewing. Set the A/B switch to the "B"

position to view scrambled channels. (When you set the A/B

switch to "B", you will need to tune your TV to the cable box's
output channel, which is usually channel 3 or 4.)
OK

I have a Sanyo DP32648 that keeps losing only one channel in the program. When the TV is turned off, that channel disappears from the program. I have to manually reboot the entire list. How can I solve...


It sounds like there is some electrical noise interference that would not be "fixable". If though, we reconfigure the way that they are connected together, we may be able to avoid the noise.

Instead of allowing the antenna signal to "pass through" the 625 we will skip it.

After following the directions, switching between satellite and antenna will be done by selecting on the SANYO "Input 1" for satellite, and selecting "Ant" for antenna. K?

Try this:

From the 625 Tuner 1- using RCA cables (a.k.a. composite cables, or red, white, yellow cable), connect to "Input 1" on the Sanyo TV. To see composite cables go to http://www.wowvision.tv/settingsandconnections.htm

Next, remove the coaxial cable between the Sat box and TV. (Sanyo "Ant. In" port and 625 "Out to TV" port) Set that cable aside.

Now, remove the incoming antenna cable from the 625 "Ant. In" port, and connect it to the Sanyo's "Antenna In" port.

Finally, scan for channels and check for the presence of CBS.

Once verified, test the TV by turning off and on.

Turn on the satellite receiver and switch Sanyo to "Input 1" to verify sat picture.

I believe this solution will satisfy your needs. Please let me know if it doesn't work, and I will need to talk to you about signal strengths, again.

God bless,

Have a vizio lcd tv . can not get any channels today with the switch over to digital. i use an antenna


Your TV probably does not have a digital tuner connected to the DTV/ANT input. Mine didn't. I had to connect the digital antenna to a digital converter box THEN go to the DTV/ANT input. Only then would it activate the DTV menu and allow me to scan for channels. If your TV worked fine with Cable TV connected to the input, it was because your signal was coming from the digital tuner in your DVR, or your cable provider was sending you an unscrambled digital signal (not likely).
I used a digital converter box I had purchased with the government $40 coupon back in 2009 but the resolution is only 480 and looks like a Monet or Renoir. Now I am shopping for a high quality tuner.

Tv converter


there is no way to convert your antenna/cable wire to use either hdmi or dvi. you must use either a cable box or satellite reciever. on any new tv sold within the last year there is a " rf connector " where you would attach the antenna or cable wire. take a look at your owners manual to find out exactly where.

Connecting TV to combo DVD and VCR


When you say "can't get the TV to play through the VCR", do you mean that you can't get the cable-stations to play through the VCR to the TV? I'll assume that's what you're trying to accomplish.

The most common way to connect a VCR to a TV is through a coaxial cable, from the port on the rear of the VCR labeled "Out to TV." There should be another coaxial port labeled "Cable/Ant In." This is where I picture your cable programming is currently connected.

Instead, it sounds like you connected the VCR to a modulator (probably thru RCA composite cables, which have yellow / red / white plugs). Then the modulator connects to the TV thru a coaxial cable. This will successfully play the VCR to whatever specific channel (perhaps 2, 3 or4), but the modulator doesn't know of any other signals to send to your TV.

2 possible solutions:

1) If the modulator has a coaxial port labeled "Cable/Ant In" or something indicating "In" at a threaded coaxial port, connect your cable-programming to this instead of the to the VCR.

Depending on what type of modulator it is, when you want to switch from watching the VCR to watching cable-programming, you might have to push a button on the modulator to make the swtich, or you might not. Your modulator might put the VCR on channel 3, and allow the higher cable channels to filter though to their respective stations. Most cable providers will leave channels 2, 3 and 4 blank for this purpose. Try it and see.

2) Axe the modulator. Take it out of the system entirely. Connect your cable programming to the VCR "Cable/Ant In" and use another coaxial cable to go from the VCR's "Out to TV" port to the TV. When you want to switch from watching the VCR to watching cable, press a button on your VCR or the VCR's remote. Usually this button is labled, "TV/VCR."

If this does not help, write back and explain in more detail how your system is currently connected.
