Question about Toshiba 36A40 36" TV

1 Answer

Picture size i have a 36" tv,the picture is too big for the screen..the pic size doesn't work (to my knowledge) on the remote control. i bought the t.v 2nd hand, so i don't have a user guide to it.. i also have a problem with the color,i guess, my tv is mostly dark. i tried to adjust the color and tint, brightness, nothing works good. in a night scene from a movie or show i can't see anything.when i also go into the main menu and try to find a solotion for my problems i have to reset the pic format. another problem is if the power goes out in my town, when it comes back on so do my tv.. i think i have a lemon but any help would be great.. thanks

Assuming power supply voltages are correct,ie regulated sources,you will need access to the servicer menu via the service manual or CD ROM info for that make/model.(2)reset screen control adjust on IHVT (transformer).(3)solder any/all bad connects,esp.regulator pins. Practice visual acuity technique!!

Picture too big and aspect ratio button on cable remote doesn't work


use the tv's remote to adjust the picture size under settings. Some newer cable boxes have a service menu that can be activated to set the pic right at the box but that depends on make and model.

Picture too large for screen


It appears that on this television you can only adjust the picture size when you are using the twin picture feature. You must adjust the picture size with your other remote control. Since I do not know whether you are connected to a cable box or a satellite tv box or a blu ray player or a DVD player I cannot be very specific. On your other remote control you should had an hd zoom button, aspect, format, ratio, #, or etc. Those buttons change the picture size. The other factor determining picture size is the resolution the equipment connected to your tv is set to. This tv supports 1080i but you should also try setting the connected equipment to 720p or 480p or 480i. Also the connected equipment may be connected to your tv in two places so make sure you are on the correct selection using the tv video button on the Sony remote.

The horizontal size adjustment is in the service menu only. I would suggest someone who knows the code to do it for you.
