Question about Toshiba 36AFX61 36" TV

Toshibe 36AFX61 36" TV

Good day, I recently encounterd a problem with the 36AFX61. While viewing a program, I went to change the channel using the cable remote and the TV set just shut it self down. I turned it back on however, no picture or sound is present. I'm also unable to change channels using the TV or cable remote. I thought the TV had gone bad however, I'm able to view channels using the Picture In Picture feature. This confirms that the TV is receiving the signal and working properly. It seems that I can't change the settings from PIP to Main. i've looked through the manual as well but nothing helpful regarding what I'm experiencing. I may have hit a feature on the cable remote by error. No luck with that as yet. I even unplugged the TV for a while and plugged back in with no change. Here is the link to the manual: Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance.

I uncovered the problem. The "analog tuner" seems to have gone bad. The part is $25 -$36. The set can still be used however. I just removed the coaxial cable from ANT 1 in the back of the TV (this is what I believe has become defective)which was going to a VCR. I then just used composite cables(red,white,yellow)to bring the signal directly to the TV from the cable box, rather than the VCR. All works however, will replace the defective part.

Impossible to change channels, turn TV on, Power and Opc blinking

go into programming mode and search for channels   it will do this automatically to find all antennae and all cable channels    if this is hooked up to a receiver box then only channel 3 will be found or used    also most tvs are computerized these days and at times it will need to 'rebooted'     unplug the power and wait 10 seconds and plug it in again    this may have to be done whenever you are locked out from changing channels or using the volume controls

Recorded programs in english come out in Spanish

Make sure your TV hasn't been set for SAP (you'll find it in the audio settings menu). Second audio programming is often used to carry alternate languages, and if it's turned on you won't know it until you watch a program where it's being used. There may be a single button labeled SAP on the remote. If so, it's easy to change the TV setting without realizing it.

Sanyo tv channel stuck

A POSSIBLE solution. I have the same it used, but it's in good condition.
It was stuck on a channel. I went iinto the menu and fiddled with the channel programs and "deleted" the channel and now I can freely change channels.

By the way, I could use a manual for this one?
