Changing TV set up to cable from "air"

I originally auto set up my new Toshiba TV to "air", now hooked up to cable, but can not get back to the screen to change to cable! So TV is blank!

    When auto set up came up for the one and only time, I was going to use an antennae, but changed my mind and bought coaxial cable and connected to my satelite in other room with splitter. But now I can't get back to set up screen to change from air to cable setting.

    I have the exact same problem - My Toshiba TV does not seem to let you toggle between Cable/Air except from the auto-setup screen, which seems to be launchable only the first time you power-up the TV.  If so, this is insane.

    Are you still using the coaxial connection or are you now connected with rca (yellow,white, red). If the input changed, you will have to select the correct input (tv/input).

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!

How do I stop the aspect ratio from auto changing on my flat screen set up as the monitor for my computer?


When you set it to just scan the source will determine the scan. I would remove the bose from the unit and connect the cable or sat box directly to the hdmi in of the tv. if the problem persists check Samsung web site for software upgrade. If upgrade does not fix replace the main circuit board.

How to hook up cable box to model tz55x71 manufactured 2000 diagram please


You can Google the model number of the Toshiba for a 'manual" or owner manual which will show your set.

Usually with a cable box in goes to box and out to cable fitting on rear of set and set to channel 3. Output of a box with audio/video cables is same except they connect not to the cable fitting but to the rear inputs on back of set.

FYI most cable companies will come out, connect it and hook it up for little or no charge.

We have a new Philips 32" LCD TV, 3500 series/32PFL3505D. We are having problems as we try to connect it to our existing Direct TV receiver. Do we need to call for Direct TV assistance, or can you...


Looks fairly straightforward.

Depending on the output of your DirectTV receiver, you are either going to use an HDMI cable.tomcattech17_0.jpg

A component cable: (Red\Green\Blue for video... White\Red for audio)

Or a composite cable: (Yellow for video.. White\Red for audio)

Hook one side of the cables to the Direct TV receiver and the other into the correct inputs on the back of the TV.

New toshiba lcd has sound, is getting all cable


Hi,
What kind of video connections are you using to hook up the cable and the dvd player? Also does the menu of the tv come up normally? Once I have more information I can assist you further. Worst case scenario you will end up needing to return it for a replacement where you bought it from but lets do a little troubleshooting first.
Thank you,
Lee

HDMI cable hooked up, now CLOSED CAPTIONING is stuck on!


It has got to be the box. I would try to contact Scientific Atlanta if any way possible. The TV doesn't choose what inputs it shows CC.In other words, it would show it on all Inputs if it was the TV. Good luck and Thanks

Toshiba 32AV500U HDMI issues


The Toshiba 32AV500U cannot display 1080p. Hook up your PS3 to your computer monitor, provided that it can display 1080p, or some other TV that can, then change your Video Output settings under Settings> Display Settings and uncheck 1080p, which will allow the PS3 to display in 1080i. Once you do that, then hook up the Toshiba via HDMI and it will work with no problem.

Hisense flat screen has locked


Try turning the main power switch on the back of the tv off.
Then hold the menu button and push that switch back on while still holding the menu button.
Keep holding the menu button until the setup menu pops up.
Next, be sure your input is set correctly(air or cable).
Next, do an auto channel search.

That did it for me. After I shut it off I had to do it one more time but it did the job. A friend of mine gave me the tv for free because nobody he new could figure it out. I took it home, got lucky, and figured it out in about ten minutes.

Hope this works for you. line-gry.gif

Black borders


Check the resolution settings on your cable box, you may have to call your cable provider to find out how to get into the settings menu, there is a stretch function in the settings that should make all the lower channels auto fit your screen, also see if there's a p=size button on your remote control, try pushing that when on the channels that have sidebars.
