Question about Toshiba Televison & Video
WE HAVE RECENTLY HAD TO RETUNE OUR TV. AND THIS WAS DONE SUCCESSFULLY, HOWEVER AFTER RETUNING I NEEDED A PASS WORD TO ACCESS THE PROGAMS. I COULD NOT REMEMBER EVER HAVING A PASSWORD SO I WENT ONLINE AND TOOK SOMEONES SUGGESTION TO TRY 0000 AS THE PASSWORD. THIS WAS SUCCESSFUL BUT I AM NOW ASKED FOR A PASSWORD EVERY TIME I CHANGE CHANNELS. SO I THEREFORE HAVE TO ENTER 0000 EVERTIME I WISH TO SUCCESSFULLY CHANGE TO ANOTHER CHANNEL. HOPE YOU CAN HELP THANKS
It is possibly a setting somewhere set when you did the re-tune, causing all of the channels tuned to be protected. try looking through your TV's settings for something that might help. Otherwise, we could really use a brand/model # to help you out any more.

SOURCE: Channel keeps changing
It sounds like a stuck button or switch. What happens when you hit the channel DOWN, does it still keep scrolling down?
Is this with or without the remote?
Have you tried it with the remote and or the TV?
Let me know whether you are changing the channels with the remote or the buttons on the tv and I can try to give you a couple more suggestions.

When TV channels are moved from one frequency to another frequency that was previously used by a different channel (sorry, but there's no simple way of saying that !) as has happened recently in th UK, some digital TVs and digiboxes struggle to sort the channel list out properly and channels can go missing as you describe.
If your equipment has the option to delete all currently stored channels (normally in the tuning menu options) then do so and then do a full re-tune.
Sometimes, this solves the problem as the equipment is no longer aware of any previous use of a frequency and just loads every channel it finds.
If this doesnt work, or your equipment doesnt have the option, then there is normally the option soemwhere in the menus to retore the item to "factory defaults/configuration". This will clear all previously stored channels and after a full re-tune your missing chanels should be there. However, any other configuration changes you previously made, e.g picture size, output type (RGB/NSCT/etc), etc will be lost and you'll need to set these again.
NB. some regions of the country have lost some channels temporarily now until after the switch over programme completes at the end of 2012. If you visit the Freeview website, this will tell you if your area is affected.
