    joboo, i was using satelite, but my box died. So I am on an antenna til they send me a new one. My son was in my room messing with my remotes and was pushing buttons. I am sure that has something to do with what is going on.

    Hi again, Well you are probably right about the buttons, The good news is that the tv you have has all three types of tuners so picking up channels should be no problem. In the menu you can select digital or analog channels, find what works for you( do a channel search). Since I don't know anything about your antenna setup or what kind it is, you may want to get back to me on any info you have, is it an old UHF/VHF, can you move/turn it? Rabbit ears? you can describe it. Long distance troubleshooting is hard but I will help you get this fixed. Are you rural or close to a town or city? Is the antenna pointed in the direction of a town or city? Did it work before your son pushed any buttons? Get back to me when you can and we will work through this. Good Luck!

    Hi, need to know where your signals are coming from. Do you have an antenna, cable or satellite?

If you're using antenna, (most likely)you need to adjust your antenna to where it picks up the best signal. The picture comes in clear with good audio and doesn't pixelate often.

Our Toshiba 15LV505 15.6-Inch Widescreen LCD TV with Built-in DVD Player, purchased in 2009 is now flashing the onscreen message Digital strength is weak. We have it connected to cable TV. What can we do...

Hust connect your TV to an external antenna, and set it to auto tune, and see it stores all the transmitting channels at that time, and recieving channels are clear and crisp. If it does, your TV is perfect, and the trouble is with the settop box. Either the set top box doesn't get enough signal to process or its internal digital processing stage is faulty. It should be repaired. If TV doesn't accept of the accepeted signals are weak, the tuner of the TV is faulty, and should be repaired. OK.

Need a remote control for my 14" and manual

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers for spare part supplies and Driver downloads (if applicable) as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Digital converter box won't work on toshiba md13p3 model

You can go online to the digital tv website and check your area for signal strength. All you do is punch in your area code and it will tell you if your able to get any channels. In your set up screen you can run a channel scan. Most of the time you need a good digital antennea which is something they don't tell you. I purchased one for about fifty dollars and it still don't work all that great I got a very weak signal.........So Good Luck and I hope this information was helpful to you Thank You For Using Fixya.Com! Have A Great Day! : )

We own a Toshiba MW20FP1 Television set/vcr/dvd

If you look in the back of your manual under troubleshooting you will see this particular question addressed. In the beginning of setup you must designate wether the incoming signal is from an antenna or from cable. If you have to have a cable converter box then your TV must be on channel 3 or 4.

Toshiba TV/DVD Combo Model MD14H63

I have the same problem with this model as Guest, who posted on 01/03/2008: power on, red light, immediate shut-off. The sticker on the television says it was manufactured in April 2007. I think there should be a warranty on it; I suppose I'll be calling Toshiba soon if it doesn't start working. Maybe important to note for any potential buyers, as well.
