Question about Toshiba 32A33 32" TV

Toshiba 32" TV volume and channel buttons turn it on and off

I have a Toshiba 32" 32A33 TV. There was no power at all, so according to the Toshiba website, I unplugged it from the power outlet for a few minutes. Now it has power, but none of the buttons are working correctly. The power button does not work at all, and the channel and volume buttons turn the TV on and off. It's stuck on Video2 and the TV/Video and Menu buttons do not work at all. Nothing on the remote works.

I remember that when we first got it in 2003 there was a similar issue and it was under warranty so they replaced the power button. Since then we always used a remote to turn it off and on. Is there any way to save this TV? Now that it's out of warranty I don't want to pay for a service call.

    The remote is not the problem. I think there is an issue with the circuitry or the power switch itself. I have already tried two other remotes. But thanks anyway.

    Sounds like it has a few wires crossed on the inside and if you know how to wire up a t.v. which is very dangerous. I would reccommend buying a new t.v.

    Sorry about your problem.

Hold down the Vol - key on the TV. When Volume is at the minimum, hold down the 0 button on the remote. Remain holding both keys for at least 1 full second. Be sure your arm or hand is not obstructing the remote IR beam to the TVs IR receiver.

I don't know if this will help your problem, but we were having similar problems with our Toshiba 32A33. None of the buttons on the TV or remote worked, the volume would go up and down uncontrollably, it wouldn't turn back on unless unplugged for several hours
Try either taping a penny very firmly over the TV/video button on the set to keep it depressed at all times, or wedging a piece of plastic in it to keep it down (Cardpsycho's solution).  However you do it, keeping this button depressed solved every problem we had.
