Question about Toshiba Televison & Video

1 Answer

My Toshiba 40" flat screen tv won't change channels by the remote or on the set itself. I can't type in a new channel or make the up or down arrows work to change the channel. The volume and on/off buttons work. Batteries in the remote are new. It started as an intermittent problem, but it slowly got harder and harder to change channels. Sometimes just putting the remote up close to the tv would make it work, but now it won't work at all. I use Dish Network and their remote, but even switching back to the Toshiba remote doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Switch the TV off by unpluging at the mains. Wait over 10 seconds. Plug back in, switch on and see if it now works.

SOURCE: TV won't change channels or adjust volume

Do you have a universal remote? If the batteries are taken out for a little period of time, the remote will loose the codes and they will have to be reset. You can find the codes by google universal remote codes.

If you have a factory remote that came with the television, than it may be faulty or the sensor on remote or tv may need to be cleaned.

My Panasonic plasma tv is stuck on one channel. The remote has new batteries but only works for the volume. I tried changing channels on the set itself and now the screen is black


If the screen is still on but is black, try changing the channel on the set itself back to the channel it was originally on. If you can provide me with the model name of the TV (usually somewhere on the back of the TV), I might be able to find out how to re-set up your remote with it.

Button to scan in channels


The CT-90326 remote was included with several Toshiba televisions, including the 42HL800A. You can't directly scan for channels with a single button on the remote. First make sure that the TV is set to the TV input. (Use the Input button on the remote (top left) or the TV (lowest button on the left side as you face the screen).) Next press Menu (the second lowest button on the TV or the button at the lower left of the Left arrow button). Use the Left or Right arrows to select Setup (with the gear icon) and press OK. Use the Up/Down arrows to select Auto-Tuning and press OK. Use the Up/Down arrows to reach the line to select the type of channels to search for a signal. Then use the Left/Right arrows to select Digital channels, Analog channels or both. Go down another line to set the bandwidth of your broadcasts. Again use the Left/Right arrows to select the correct one. Go down one more line to Start Scan and press OK.

These details are in the manual for your TV. The manual for the 42HL800A is available from Toshiba's product support download page: http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/support/televisions/led-backlit-tv/hl800a/42hl800a/download . The direct link to the manual is http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/file/download/resource/file/19610/toshiba_32av80032%2040lv80026%2032el80032%2042hl800_om%20(au).pdf .
I hope this helps.

Depending on your TV, here are the generic steps Toshiba has outlined to reset your TV:

1. Press the MENU button on the remote (or MENU on the TV) to open the Setup menu.
2. Using the arrow keys on the remote (or volume / channel on the TV), highlight INSTALLATION at the top of the menu and press ENTER. A new set of INSTALLATION menu icons will appear.
3. Highlight the SYSTEM STATUS menu at the top.
4. Highlight SYSTEM INFORMATION below and press ENTER.
5. At the top of the SYSTEM INFORMATION window, use the arrow keys on the remote (or volume / channel on the TV) to scroll Left/Right through the menu bar to select FACTORY DEFAULTS. Press ENTER.
6. Highlight YES and press ENTER. To cancel the reset process, select NO and press ENTER.

I cant program any channels on my tv. Toshiba 42'' plasma. Do i need the remote or can i do it directly from the tv?


Which specific model from Toshiba do you have? There are several 42" TVs released with the Regza name. Most of the manuals can be found on the Toshiba support web site. http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/customersupport/

The one that I have allows for the channels to be set from the On-Screen Menu. In the TV mode, press Menu (there is a Menu button on the side of the TV). Navigate with the arrow keys (CH+, CH-, Vol+, Vol-) to the Setup menu and highlight Installation and press Enter (the Menu button is also the Enter key when using the buttons on the TV). Then highlight Channel Program and then Start and press Enter. When the search is done, press Ch+ or Ch- to view a station. To add or delete channels, use the Channel Add/Delete that is one line below Channel Program. Use the enter key to change the check mark status next to a channel. If adding a digital sub-channel not previously found, enter the number manually on the remote using the 100 key to add the dash. If the channel isn't found, an error message will result.

I hope this helps.

Re: Sony Bravia remote problems


Hi,
sounds like you need to "autoprogram" your channels. In the customer menu search for "settings" (looks like a toolbox) select that, arrow down to "channels" select that, you'll see option for "autoprogram" select that. Any channel it sees it will lock in and you shouldn't have to press numbers anymore.
