Question about Toshiba 30HF66 30" TV

3 Answers

Second toshiba tv and they both do the same thing

I can not get all my channels. Only 13 channels. I have cable and should get 70 channels. I do get them on my other tvs but can not get them on either of the Toshibas. After the 13th channel it begins scanning thru all the channels but with no picture only snow. when I mannually go to a higher channel, I get only snow and no picture. What could be the problem and how can I fix it? Please give me a solution to this problem. Thanks, skfm21

Hi, It is possible that your Toshiba is set to receive aerial TV programs and not Cable TV programs. You need to go to the set-up menu (via remote) and go to the air/cable selection. Choose cable and then auto search/scan. This is a generic procedure and should work with your particular brand/model but the terms/names may just be a bit different. You may also consult the users manual for the exact procedure. Hope this give you an idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Is there a switch or something I need to do to get my tvs to get analog channels clear when I am hooked to cable?


See if the tuner on the TV has a provision to add both analog AND digital channels as a choice. If so, then select that and then do a new channel search. Ask if the cable company uses standard or irc channel spacing and set your tuner on the TV to match.

Cocast may have only transmitting NTSC Ch 2~13 only for your area, to get more channel you may have to use Comcast cable box, I am in bay area, I can get 2~35 for basic plus service, I can get 2~13 for the most simple service for less money. What is your serivce level you are paying for?
Your TV also anly has NTSC tuner, there is no QAM or ATSC turner.

You may have to call Comcast.

Can not get tv to reach channels from 2 to 70


Sounds like you need a set-top box from the cable company.  You hook that up to your TV, tune the TV to Channel 3 or 4, and use the set-top box to tune in all the channels.

I am trying to get channels above 13. I do not


Try bringing up the menu by holding both volume buttons down at the same time (or use menu button on remote if you have it). Go into CH SET using the channel and volume buttons on the front of set (or use the SET + and - and the ENTER buttons on remote). Go to the TV CATV line and move the arrow to CATV. Let menu time out. This will put tv into cable mode. Hope this helps.

How to program the TV to utilize cable channels


Go into the menu on your tv via built in button on the tv, or the remote. Look for something that reads "Program Mode" or "Program Channels"

Tv's have to search for channels that have a good solid frequency if they are just hooked up. newer tvs do it automatically

Only goes to channel 13


It probably has to do with a setting in your menu. Usually it is the antenna category. Change it to Cable or CATV.
