Re: NO MENU SCREEN ON TV
You MUST connect the recorder to the Tv with a SCART cable that is why you are not seeing anything.
I suspect you are using only the RF or Ariel Cables
If you have it connected with the scart cable you must choose the AV channel on your TV remote.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hook up the player with RGB (Red-Green-Blue or component) cables and try the picture. If everything works OK, then go to the menu and turn on the HDMI output and set the resolution (if needed). Not every HDMI unit works with every HDMI TV. You may also have a bad HDMI cable. On a DVD recorder, you may have your HDMI cable connected to HDMI IN. You must use HDMI out.
are you using AV jack to connect the recorder with TV for recording porpuse. if it's correct then it's simple, if recorder not gate inpute signal from TV, then it must show blank screen. coz it receiving the vedio signal from TV.
New HD tv. Have digital cable box connected to tv., cable box connected to DVD recorder, but can't get setup menu to come up on tv screen. I had a similar problem. I have a HD tv connected to a digital cable box. I hooked up the DVD recorder with the wires it came with, but it would not play or give me the menu. However it was correctly hooked up. So the next day I connected a HDMI wire from the DVD recorder to the tv and everything works now.
Resetting the TV If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:
NOTE: Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time. 1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet. 2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...) 3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds. 4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV. 5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again. 6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices. 7. Turn on the TV.
I've had this problem for a bit, it seems that there are two ways to turn off the closed captions.
1:Menu--->Preferences--->CC and Digital Audio Selectors.
This displays the menu on the bottom of the screen with the choices of Closed Caption formats and digital audio. This is not the correct menu to be in. This turns off the CC as long as the TV is not turned off or the input is not changed. This is a temporarily either turns the CC on or off.
2:Menu--->Setup--->TV Settings--->Closed Captions Settings
Displays a menu in the center of the screen, with the options of Turning the Closed Captions on and off, the Analog CC Mode and Digital CC settings. You must turn the Closed Captions off in this menu or the changes to CC are temporary.
For the record:
1. I'm aware I'm 2 years late on this, but I just want others to be able to solve this issue on their Toshiba. Don't worry, my Toshiba is the same age as yours
2. I've lost faith in Tech Support ages ago. I'm sorry that they were that incompetent.
3. Its ridiculous that there are two entirely different menus to alter the closed captions. Took me forever to figure this out.
Hope this helps you and others.
1. Press Menu on the remote.
2. Choose Setup from the menu.
3. Scroll to Connect to ReplayTV Service Now.
4. If you don't have this option try this.
For ReplayTVs running older software:
1. First, exit any menus you're currently in.
2. Press "2-4-3" on the remote followed quickly by pressing the "Zones" button - this will launch an informational screen, with like a 1-Exit, 2-Clear the Channel, etc.
3. Select #7, 'Net Connect' from the menu. (#4 on ReplayTV 2000 or 3000 series). A message at the bottom of the tv screen will indicate a successful connection.
If you are unable to force a connection using this method, you may need to reboot your unit. This is done by pressing and holding the "Power" button on the front of the unit for 10 seconds. (Note: When you hear the fan in the rear of the unit turn off, your unit is rebooting.) Now repeat the previous instructions to force a connection. This is all found on the support site:
You have set the DVD to progressive output for your big tv. The little one will not accept this.
Your manual will tell you how to reset it. The remote may be needed. Reconnect it to the big tv and check the menus.
