All of a sudden we are receiving various TV settings appearing on the screen while viewing. We have tried all combos to get rid of them, but with no luck. So while viewing shows, the screen will become cluttered and blocked for seconds at a time with volume, and all other settings in English and at times in other languages available.
Is there any way to turn this off? We believe that our 5 year old may have accidently caused this. Thx.

Re: TV settings appearing on screen while viewing
The TV is in the DEMO mode. Many sets have a demo mode, and they are all turned on and off differently. I do not recall exactly how it is done on the Toshiba, but if you look in your owner's manual or go through all pages of the menu, you should be able to find the option for demo mode and be able to turn it off.

It might be necessary to change the resolution/Aspect Ratio (Screen Size) settings on both your HD Receiver and your TV.
I don't have Bell Satellite but I do remember having the same issue setting up my friends HD TV and Bell Satellite TV Receiver.
Take your Shaw remote control.
Use LEFT/RIGHT to highlight the "house".
Scroll-down to MESSAGES.

The "red-light" will go out.
It sounds like the receiver is in single mode (you said it was in dual mode) or shared viewing. With shared viewing disabled, you will not get a picture on TV 2, only TV 1. If you are not getting a picture (black screen) on TV 2, you should change the setting for Shared View on your receiver.
Make sure your receiver is in Single mode by pressing the Mode button on your receiver (should have only the green light lit on the front of the receiver and the single mode amber light). Press the Menu button on your remote to display the Main Menu on your TV 1. Press 6 (System Setup) and 2 (Shared View). Move the cursor to Enable Shared Viewing. Press Select on your remote (Enable View should have purple dot). Then press Done. Exit out of the other screens till you have a picture on your TV 1 screen. Make sure the receiver is in dual mode and then check to make sure you have a picture on TV 2.
If you have any more problems or questions, please let us know.
This problem could be caused by various things. First of all, it could be caused by a faulty cable from the viewing device (DVD Player etc.) or it could be a fault on the TV itself or it could be a fault in the viewing device. To determine where the problem is, change the channel to a different channel that has nothing stored on it so that your screen will appear either blue or it will look like it is receiving static (many black and white dots), if the line is still there then you have a fault with the TV and you will have to take the TV to a repairman who will troubleshoot where the problem is on the circuit board and fix it. You cannot repair the TV yourself because specialized equipment is required to find the fault.
If the line is no longer there, try and replace the cable from the viewing device. If the problem is still there then the viewing device is faulty, then you should purchase a new device or get the other one repaired and this should solve your problem.

Turn off captions (if not on the TV, on your cable or satellite receiver), because that's what's going on. TV or whatever tunes it are most likely providing bad or corrupted caption data, and that's an attempt to decode it. Turning off captions should eliminate the issue (unless you need captions, in which case you should try to improve the quality of the signal into your TV, which is beyond the scope of this particular question).
Check the aerial cable, ensure it is well plugged in and getting signal.
If you are using a receiver box, check cables to TV and receiver (freeview, sat, cable etc.), try setting channels on receiver again, if it does not work but you get static, then either the cables or receiver are defective.
Test the TV on standalone , connecting it to an external antenna. Tune again the channels, and save the preset. If still no signal then the antenna socket on the TV may be defective.
Try using the TV with a DVD.
If you can watch DVDs, and TV is not keeping channels preset, and you tried all the above, at this point htere may be a fault in the tuner card inside tv.
Call the phone number listed on tv user manual to get support, and eventually repair it.
this symptom is caused by a poor regulation in the power supply circuit. too low dc supply voltage will result to insufficient deflection, both vertically and horizontally. black borders appear around the raster. receivers generally use regulator in the main power supply to set the dc supply voltage at the value that will allow the picture to fill the screen with a little overscan. defective regulator can result in a small raster. most modern receivers today are using ic (integrated cirduit) regulator. but if you are not inclined with this kind of job, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!
