Pressing the menu button should bring up options to adjust the color ,tint,etc. look for antennae options or parental control options to lift the restricted channels. hope this helps.

Reset toshiba tv password


Turn on the TV and grab the remote. In most cases, you will need the original remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. If you don't have the original remote, you will need to purchase one.
Look at the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on the bottom of the screen, press 'Function' and 'Mute' at the same time. This should unlock the channel. This is an option for people who want the TV to stay locked but, want to be able to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will fully lock when it is turned off.

Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if none of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television because the problem may not be the locking control. When you call, make sure that you have the model number and serial number of the TV.

Take your television to a TV repair shop. In some cases, a professional who access to wiring diagrams for your television set may have to rewire certain components in order for the television to unlock. This is usually the case when the TV locks by itself while it is on.

Hi. I bought a new Samsung LCD Flat Panel TV, model LN52A630. I started playing with different settings and completely messed up, and i cannot set it back. Is there an option that i can use that resets all...


Most TVs have both a consumer menu system and a service menu system. Assuming you stayed in the consumer menus, there maybe a reset or defaults selection. Look around. If you don't find it, use google to locate a downloadable manual for your specific model. An occasional TV resets to default settings if you unplug it for 48 hours. Many have resets in the set menu when you program channels, parental control and time.
