Question about Toshiba 19A21 19" TV

1 Answer

Fell, won't turn on

Hi, Recently my girlfriend's Toshiba 19a21 took a fall about 3 feet from a wobbly table and landed screen-side down. There were no visible marks and the screen remained on, however, it would not change channels, turn off, or play sound from either the buttons on the tv or remote. We opened it up and did not see any blatant issues. When the plug is put in the wall you can hear the normal charging sound, but the tv won't turn on. Is there any way to fix this-- a part that's likely broken or perhaps a torn connection? Thanks...

Re: fell, won't turn on

For sure the main board its broken and 80% chances that the picture tube has some internal damage that may can cause a rainbow effect, discoloration or color shadows. if you want it to try you can find the broke line traces on the main board , you can buy some tools at any radio shack store , and follow intructions . but its your bet to try the risk to have that picture disoloration and or learn some electronics

What universal remote is acceptable for a toshiba 19A21 tv?


You just buy an RCA Universal Remote Control

Mosel numbers are RCR 412BN / RCR 412SN / RCR 412SIN. All of these remotes have listed Toshiba codes to suite to wirk with it.

Codes are:-

11524, 10154, 10156, 11256, 11265, 10060

Direct Code Entry

Direct Code Entry lets you enter a code from the accompanying

code list for your brand of device. It's not as easy as the other
methods, but it's potentially the fastest method.

1. Manually turn on the device you
want to control

2. Find the Code List that came with

the remote. Locate the section for

the type of device you're trying to

program, and find your brand in

that section. Circle the codes for
your brand and keep them handy

3. Press and hold the device key you want to program (the

ON•OFF key comes on).

While you're holding down the device key, use your other

hand enter the first five-digit code for your brand in the
code list (the ON•OFF key goes off after the first digit).

4. When you've finished entering the five-digit code, keep

holding down the device key and look at the ON•OFF key.

Is the ON•OFF key on?

YES: You're done! You've programmed this device key.

NO, it blinked four times and turned off: You have

either entered a code number that is not in the code lists or
missed a step in the code entry procedure. Try step 3 again.

TIP: Each device key is associated with a type of device-the

TV is preset to search for TVs, SAT•CBL•DTC for satellite

receivers, cable boxes or digital TV converters, DVD for DVD

players, and VCR•AUX for VCRs and DVRs. To program a

device key for a different type of device, see the Changing a

Key's Device Type section.

The ON•OFF key serves as an indicator light during

programming, giving you feedback at each stage of the


Remember to enter the code for future reference in the box

provided in the Code Retrieval section of this manual.

If your brand isn't listed in the code list, use one of the Code

Search methods to program the remote control. (Refer to the

Auto and Manual Code Search methods.)

If you release the device key any time during the Direct Code

Entry procedure, the ON•OFF key blinks four times, and

the process is exited. The last programmed code under the

device key is retained.

Test the remote with the device to make sure the device

key is programmed with the correct code for maximum

functionality. If some features don't work, try a different code
in the list.

How do i program my universal remote to my toshiba tv, i have already tried all the codes listed and nothings working, what do i do?

You may be able to order an original remote or if you get lucky a local TV repair shop may have one to sell you for a fraction of ordering one.

Sides of screen greenish

sorry to tell you, most likly when the set fell, it caused a screen inside the set called a shadow mask to shift and the only way to fix would be to replace the picture tube. you could try unplugging the set overnight then replug back in but its unlikly that will help but always worth a try.
