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.

TV won't recognize PC through HDMI port anymore


Thanks for all the background, super detailed! I had a similar problem on a new Samsung that was really flaky with my HDMI from a raspberry pi. Would have to do all kinds of unplugging, cycling power etc like you're doing to get it to work. Once on it would work until I turned the tv off (actually doesn't turn off, but goes to sleep) and back on. Finally figured out that the resolution I was outputting wasn't supported, BUT sometimes it would work. Once I changed the resolution to a supported resolution it worked all the time.

Go to the customer menu and switch the set from air-antenna to cable.

The set is in the air band and not the cable band hence only channels 2-13.

If you're in the US, you will no longer get antenna signals because the US has recently switched to digital. The TV you have does not have a digital tuner and you'll need to purchase a digital converter box that converts a band of analog signal to digital.

Try an antenna directly on the tv to see if you get any stations. This will assure you that the tuner is working. Then hook up the new box and tune tv to channel 3 and turn box on. You should get some kind of display. If no luck you could hook audio/video cables from the audio/video output on the box to the video 1 input on the rear of your set. Then switch tv input to video 1 and turn box and tv on. This too, should give you something on the screen. Make sure the antenna is hooked up to the "ant. in" on the box. This should help, Russmann.
