Toshiba 9" TV/VCR W/CAR AC/DC - No power when on battery

I put this new TV in our motorhome.  It worked fine, until one day when I got a blank screen.  I followed the mfg guide and found the button on back that brought back my picture.

Now I have a second problem, in that the TV won't work on DC now.  I checked the DC outlet and verified power and I ensured that the AC cord was unplugged behind the set.  I couldn't find a fuse in the DC cord plug.

What else could the problem be?  It is only a few months old and the DC has worked fine before.

Re: Toshiba 9" TV/VCR W/CAR AC/DC - No power when on...

I would check on the inside for a disconnected wire or loose connection at the Dc imput if it still works on ac. You can most likely get a service manual at if the wires are intact on the DC imput and the jack itself fits secure to the adapter. Hope this helps

RCA TV E09397AB How to set to channel 3 or 4

I would suggest to unplug the TV from the power source for a while. Before plugging the TV to the power source, connect the VCR and play a movie or have some signal for the TV to store channel 3 into the memory. You might have to do the autoprogramming if the above did not work.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

For use during an extended power outage, where of course you wouldn't be able to recharge the battery after it drained initially, I'm wondering if anyone has tried using a 12 volt lead acid rechargeable...

You simply need a DC - AC Inverter, these can be obtained from somewhere like Radio Shack, or the like, pretty cheaply. These convert 12V DC into 115/120V AC (Some are 24V - 115/120 V) for use with your household appliances. You can get them from 100 Watts to over 1 kilowatt (!000 Watts) They can be used on almost anything at all, except things with big motors in them. Then you can simply plug the AC adapter into the inverter and you are good to go. not having to worry if your laptop is getting correct power.
Often the DC input into a laptop is between 14 Volts DC to 22 Volts DC and a high current too, up to 5 Amps. So the inverter is your best option.
Anyway you would need to use at least TWO 12 Volt batteries and then you would have to make it the exact voltage the laptop needed.. if it was say 19V then you are still going to have to find a way to drop the 24 V to 19 V, anyway so.....

Tv runs on 110 but not 12volt

There is a fuse on the DC power line for AC/DC sets and you can start by making sure it isn't blown. The fuse may be in the cigarette lighter plug itself, or inside the TV. If you find the fuse blown, replace it with one of the same value and try it again. The fuses sometimes do go for no good reason. If there is some internal trouble with the TV, the fuse will go again and you'll know for sure.

Find the codes andm menue for remote uRC3605B00 remote control

If none of the codes work then we have two other solutions:

1. Searching For Your Code

If you have tried all of the set-up codes for your brand of equipment ,or yourbrand is not listed, and you are still not able to get the unit to respond, trythe following procedure to search for your code.
If you don't find a code that works, the remote will flash four times when youreach the end of all the codes for this device type.
  1. PRESS the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.), then RELEASE.
  2. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
  3. ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)
  4. ALTERNATE slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY instead of POWER)
    Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You may have to press this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the entire library of codes.
  5. When your device turns OFF, PRESS the SETUP button and RELEASE it to lock in the code for your device.

2. Learn the buttons from the original

Line up your original remote and the head-to-head before completing thefollowing steps.
  1. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.
  2. PRESS 9 - 7 - 5, the red LED will flash twice.
  3. PRESS the DEVICE key where you wish to learn the function. The next 3 steps must be completed within 10 seconds.
  4. PRESS the button that will receive the learned function, the LED will flash rapidly.
  5. PRESS the button on the original remote to be learned.

Now you can repeat steps 3 through 5 to learn other functions onto other keysor press and hold SETUP until the Cinema's red light flashes twice to lock inyour new feature. (If the red light does not blink twice, stop and repeat stepsthrough 6).
To test the new feature, press and release the device key in which the newfeature was learned followed by the key on which the feature was learned

Axion handheld tv. No picture at all.

I have on and if the batteries start getting weak the screen display brightness is the first to stop working. Double check that, if you are on AC power try sliding the brightness control from dim to bright a few times and see if the rheostat has corroded. Those are a few of the quick checks you can try, let me know. Jay

No power via batteries

The batteries are put in wrong, or there no good, or the dc jack in the back still has the plug in it for the ac adaptor. You see theres a small switch on the jack inside the unit that switches from the ac adaptor to the batteries, when the jack is iserted. Also if the plug is not pluged into the jack, then there could be a bad jack or a broken solder connection on the jack inside on the printed circiut board. good luck

Power Source

Are you certain the polarity of the connections to the TV are correct? If you connected them in reverse you may have damaged the TV. If there's a fuse in line check that too. BMW
