Question about Toshiba 36A43 36" TV

1 Answer

I recently changed my box from the cable company...shortly afterwards when I went to turn off the Tv there was a flash and I have been unable to get the picture back....is it possible I blew a fuse?

I recently had my cable box switched to a new model....tech couldn't get the remote for the tv to operate? so it was only able to function with the universal remote from the cable company....shortly afterwards I went to turn it off, and had been doing so manually on the TV since the switch but used the Universal Remote to turn off and it did so but a flash occured and since then I have been unable to get the picture on the TV...I was going to dump the TV but before I do so, I wanted to investigate a bit further to see if possible a fuse was blown, which is what my instincts tell me but I am not savy with the components of the TV. Does this TV even have a fuse? IF so where are they located so that I am check? If a fuse, what type of fuse and are they fairly easy to find at a local hardware store or is it something that I have to go to an electronics repair store to purchase a specific fuse? HELP!! I have been without a TV for a month & half...funds these days are scarse and not in a position to purchase a new TV...Is there any HOpe? My neighbor says that he will come over to assist me but asked that I inquire about the TV & possible problems & lead me in the direction to correct the issue. My name is Roseanne 760-322-7896 in Palm Springs email address: roseannadanna@earthlinknet my cable service network is Time Warner....any advise/assistance you can offer to me is greatly appreciated! THANK YOU!

SOURCE: TV will suddenly change channels, change volume, or go to set up screen by itself

yes and this is a common problem! First lets check out the obvious/ when theis fault starts to happen take out the batteries out of the remote control. If the problem stops then you need a new remote. If the proplem persist the remote sensor assy is bad in the tv set. Ive never heard a cable box causeing a motherboard to act up?? Wait arent mother boards in computers?? lol. believe me you need to tell the tv msn to replace the rmote sensor. Now in an extremly rare cases the microprocessor was causing the problem BUT highly unlikly. Good Luck

SOURCE: Remote signals

If you tryed a universal remote , that remote should have at least worked the volume and the channels selector. It could be whats called a remote sensor assy thats mounted up toward the front of the set on the inside between the buttons. Its not really a user changeable part as there is soldering involved to replace the sensor. Realisticly, the correct way to trouble-shoot this set is to look at the data or logic line coming out of the remote sensor with an osilliscope to see the data and if it goes all the way to the microprocessor IC. If it does and no remote operation happens then the Micro's bad. Theres way to much Hi-voltage in these sets for a handi-person to tinker with, and its advised that a tech take a look at this set for you . Sorry I couldnbt be of more assistance. Good Luck

SOURCE: 30HF85 TV with CT-877 remote, which doesn't work.

I had the same problem with my remote...over time it slowly stopped working. (sorry for poor terminology) I noticed that one of the battery terminals was corroded and that the metal connecting the battery to the board was completely gone. I simply swapped this out with one from another remote and now its working fine. Seems the only issue is that the battery was not connected.

I hope this helps.

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.

Sounds like there is too much voltage going into the same outlet. Please keep in mind cable boxes as well as your tv hold a higher amount of voltage then your dvd player. If your tv is plugged into the back of your cable box, unplug that and just plug it directly into the wall. If not, get a power strip and plug it in that way.

My insignia tv shows a NO DATA BASE error on screen. How do i fix this.


Try these tips:

Connecting your Cable box through Coaxial to the TV.
1- Turn on the TV and the Cable Box, secure all the coaxial connectors.
2- Press the "TV" button to be sure you are in the TV mode.
3- You need to set the TV in a specific channel for receiving the signal from the Cable Box, usually they are channel 3 or 4. Please press in the TV's remote those channels numbers and check if you are receiving signal about the Cable Box in any of them.
4- If you do, afterwards remember to continue using the Cable Box remote to change the channels instead of the TV one.

Connecting your Cable Box through RCA to the TV
1- Turn on the TV and the Cable Box, secure all the RCA wires.
2- Press the "TV" button to be sure you are in the TV mode.
3- Press the "Input" button to go to AV1 or AV2 depending where the Cable box is connected.
4- You should be receiving signal instantaneously after you have changed the Input and keep using the Cable Box remote for changing the channels.

BRAVIA TV KDL-40V2500


i had the same problem and the only way i could solve it was to disconnect power from the tv, let it "reset" then it would be ok for a bit. the problem went away entirely when the cable company updated its software for its hd box. might be coincidence....

also, pre-update, the resolution wouldnt automatically set correctly. If I turned on the tv to a hi def station, it would set to 480 and only set to 1080 when i changed to a normal station then back to the hd. then it was fine. again, after the update from the cable company this went away.
