Question about Toshiba CF27H50 TV

1 Answer

Toshiba CF27H50 cannot switch from TV to Cable

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?

    Has a switch for this, not buttons. But, I discovered I had set the TV to channel 4 instead of 3. Once I switched the channel, it switched over automatically. Everything fine now.

Have you tried pressing the cable or TV buttons on the remote?

I hope this solution is helpful.

I have a Toshiba CF27H50 that just stated losing the picture after about an hour of viewing. After an hour, it starts to flicker and then the picture just is lost and it just goes to black/snow screen and...

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.

How do I hook this up to a new Yamaha receiver?

As for the audio signal from the TV, you will need to add an rca type audio patch cord that goes from the audio output (usually red/white) on the back of the TV, to an auxiliary input on the receiver. Then simply switch the selector on the receiver over to the aux setting when you want to listen to TV through the speakers. (If there is no aux, you can use a tape input instead, and switch to that.)

No picture

just an idea the t.v. is 10 years old ok. Now look at the back can you see inside if so chances are there is a build up of dust which makes a great t.v. wrecker. So vacuum the dust out and see if that helps.

We have cable, but only get 13 channels on this toshiba

Check in the menu options and switch one of the settings from TV to Cable. Sorry I can't remember exactly what it's called but if you find something with TV / Cable and switch it to Cable - you should be able to go over channel 13.

Again, I don't know how to find the AV mode.

I had the same problem just now trying to get my Tivax STB-T8 converter to work the 1st time I tried to set it up. I couldn't see anything on the TV or VCR that indicated what "external AV mode" is or if either unit had it.

The ONLY change I made -- on both the TV & the converter box -- was to switch the "ch 3 or ch 4" from ch 4 to ch 3. (I'd always used my TV & VCR on the ch 4 setting.) Once I did that, I got the menu & was able to proceed w/the next steps & it appears to work.

One caveat: I have yet to figure how the VCR works in all of this. I have it hooked up in the mix, but have yet to attempt to have both the VCR & TV on. (Maybe I don't need to do that anymore -- I may have done that cuz my external antenna was hooked up to the VCR & then the VCR to the TV & that's how i got a decent signal.)

I have no clue as to what the difference is betw ch 3 & ch 4 or if it would solve your seemingly similar problem on your particular TV & converter combination, but it would be worth giving it a shot.

If it works, I'd be interested to hear your feedback.
Fingers crossed -- Jim

Is this tv set up for the digital switch in Feb.

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
