Re: Toshiba MD13P3 13 in. TV/DVD

I have the exact problem. We have three TV/DVD combos from Toshiba, and within the last two weeks all three of them started have the same problem - all at different times. At first I thought one had a power surge problem, so I took it to the TV repair shop (being diagnosed now), then a few days later the second one did the same thing. And now, three days later, the third one (newer model Toshiba) started doing the same thing.

More detail --- Toshiba md20q42 tv/dvd combo not powering on, initially when it happened i Hit power button and lite came on and blinks for about 3 seconds then turns off--- now when i push power button...

It is probably a power supply problem associated with standby circuit. If this circuit is bad the set hardly comes on and fails. This is a task for a technician to trace the fault through the whole power supply.

Looking for remote code for toshiba SD-P4000


Four digit Toshiba remote codes are
[0159 _ 0178_ 0109_ 0120_ 0181_ 0105_ 0049_ 0095_ 0170_ 0260_ 0358_ 0394_ 0924_ 0012_ 0095_ 0117_ 0141]

Three digit Toshiba Universal Remote Codes are

[013/ 049/ 089/ 105/ 109/ 117/ 118/ 120/ 159/ 178]

Direct Code Entry
  1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  2. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  3. Enter the 4 digit code from the code tables. Note: after a valid code entry, the red indicator turns off. For an invalid code, the red indicator flashes.
  4. With your device on, press CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further programming is required. Note: If some buttons do not operate your device, try one of the other codes for your brand.

Code Search If after trying "Direct Code Entry" your device does not respond, or if your brand is not listed, try doing a search of the code library for your code by following these steps.
  1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
  2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  3. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks once, then stays on.
  4. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  5. Press and release MUTE to install the code. The indicator light goes off.
Most users will want to store VCR codes under the VCR button, Cable codes under CBL, etc. If you want to store a VCR code under CBL, etc., first follow the procedure for Direct Code Entry and press CBL in step 2 of Direct Code Entry, then enter ANY VCR code in step 3 of Direct Code Entry. Then follow the steps above for Code Search.

Tv combo is 2 years old..only use in bedroom. very little use..push the button on tv or remote, the tv comes on for a second,,then goes off..if i turn on tv with remote, and keep the button held down,,the...

This is a very common problem in these sets. I would recommend taking it to a certified repair shop. What normally happens is that the x-ray protect transistor starts to "leak" (electricity, not fluids) and shuts the unit down. The repair is not too costly.

Toshiba TV

Will not power, led blinking
check R640 (1K 1/4w) if open replace ic600 (8-759-670-30)
Standby led blinks slowly, a few times, chassis won't start up
I changed the vertical deflection ic type TDA8170 and I measured two leaky capacitors in the power supply. Better to change all 4 capacitors in the power unit, everything was then ok !

I'd like to add another on the power problem

A common failure in these units is Q401, Toshiba p/n# Bz510004 is a 2SA1624 (HV amplifier) which finally fails due to a resistor R408 Toshiba p/n# Bz210285 a .47 ohm/1w metal oxide having changed in value and at last opening...
This isn't an expensive repair for a qualified shop - but I would suggest not continuing to test your shutdown circuit. What's happening is that HV (high Voltage) is builds beyond tolerances and the shutdown circuit turns your unit off to keep from causing any severe damage. If it failed you could likely burn out the SMPS or cause some substantial damage..
Good Luck!

Toshiba TV MV13P2

All I can say is that the black box appears when the closed captions are on and set to TEXT. This is normal. Turning off the closed captions should make the black box go away. If the closed captions are somehow turning themselves back on, there may be an issue with the microprocessor in your TV.
