Satellite system was down for a few days, so I had the TV switched to TV instead of cable so I could wathc local programming. Now the sat is back on line, but I cannot get the TV to switch back to Cable setting. Neither the remote nor the front panel controls will work to do this. I can scroll thru the menu items and move up or down, but not sideways. I thought it was the remote, but it won' t work with the fron panel controls either. Any suggestions?

This is a common symptom of tuner trouble. A common problem is bad solder connections inside. As the set warms up, small cracks on joints from the tuner circuit board to its metal case can cause the trouble you describe. If you tap on the TV or wiggle the connector where the antenna or cable line goes, the picture will sometimes pop back in if this is the case. It's also possible the tuner has parts that quit working as they warm up. The only way to know for sure is to remove the tuner, check over the connections, repair any that are iffy, and see if the trouble continues. This is not a repair for a do-it-yourselfer, though, because of the soldering involved.
If the trouble isn't bad connections in the tuner, there's not much you can do. I've checked the parts sources I use. The original Toshiba part is no longer available and I haven't found any replacement. If you're using a cable box or other video source, you can keep using the TV just for its AV inputs and not worry about the tuner any more. Otherwise, given repair labor cost and lack of parts, it's probably more economical to replace this TV instead of trying to repair it.
try to remove the battery , then press and hold power button for 8 secs. Then insert the power cable instead of battery. Turn it on. If it wont, try to disengage the power cable and insert the battery. If still wont turn on, kindly inform toshiba about this problem and have them fixed immediately. It is either the battery, the cable or the pc unit itself that causes your laptop failure...

Hi, Have you used the keyboard toggle to switch between the laptop screen and the TV? If you have no then the toggle is as follows>>>> Hold down the Fn key and look across the F keys for a key that has an icon of a monitor on it and press that. Make sure you have the VGA cable connected to the laptop and the TV or the switch won't work.
Try setting tv to channel 3 or channel 4, this should coincide with the back of satellite box (a little black switch with a 3 or 4). then switch channels with your satellite box. I would recommend using another output off the satellite box to feed the other tv, a splitter loses some signal quality an can go bad as well. get a long rca cable to feed tv!
Change the source on the Philips/Magnavox to switch between satellite and movies (warning: this particular Philips/Mag cannot process HD Satellite receiver boxes). You can switch sources by using the Magnavox remote and pressing 0-2. Then press ch down until the display says either L1 or L2 - whichever input the satellite is connected to. Another warning: For my instructions to work, you must have a non-HD satellite receiver, and you must run a red, white and yellow cable from the satellite box to the Magnavox instead of a standard coaxial cable wire (and then, of course, run a second set of red, white and yellow cables from the Magnavox to your TV).
If the TV was manufactured in 1993, it is NOT ready for the digital switch. If you have cable or satellite, you don't need to do anything because the cable or satellite box will do the swith for you. If you are using an outside antenna (rabbit ears) you will need to get a converter box. Hope this answers your question
