Toshiba 40H80 Setup Code

I've recently had my Toshiba 40H80 serviced. I am not happy with the job they did, because they didn't really finish it up. They fixed the original problem, which was pretty bad: red wavy lines and a wavy distorted picture, probably due to a power surge (doh!). But they didn't get the IC set up right. They told me they were unable to obtain the setup code from Toshiba for the IC they replaced, as they are not an authorized factory service provider. So I'm done fooling with them, but I'm wondering if that makes sense, and if I'll have better luck with an authorized Toshiba repair company. Do you have to enter an initial setup code when you replace an IC?

    Thanks for your prompt response, sorry I haven't done the same. I had a hard time finding the service receipt, and it wasn't specific anyway. I'm not sure which IC(s) they replaced, although it should have been the main controller one, that handles the menu, etc., because my menu is different on the Theaterwide settings. They told me that they did not have the service code that sets the chip to it's proper configuration for my set, and they couldn't get it from Toshiba being as they're not a Toshiba authorized service co! Chuck's TV here in Florida. I don't know if this was incompetence, or what. They left me with a half fixed set, so it was not a satisfactory job. I've just been avoiding taking it to an authorized Toshiba service co, as they already soaked me for 600+ bucks. They said they just needed to know the proper service code to enter in to it to have everything ****** dorey...

    The problem remaining is that it won't retain my brightness and contrast settings, etc.

Stomper, there are at least 6 IC`s in your set, look on the bill and tell me which one(s) they changed. What is wrong with the set now that they have fixed the initial problem ? Once you answer these 2 questions I`ll have the info I need to give you a concrete answer.

How do i get better call reception on my samsung galaxy 4g phone?


I just got the Infuse today. I had to return my Atrix because my unit had a defect. I was pretty happy with most things on the Atrix, but decided to try the Infuse, instead of another Atrix. So far, I'm really happy with the decision. It DOES fit in my jeans pocket - and if I turn it sideways, I can even sit down. I haven't seen a bit of pixelation or blurriness on the screen. In my test calls to my husband, he said I sounded really good. (I didn't have any voice quality trouble with the Atrix, though, either.) What I'm really enjoying is that everything just seems to be a whole lot easier to do when the screen is bigger. The phone is really zippy and responsive. The text is generally more readible, because it's larger, and even a little TOO big in places - but that's not a problem. I loved being able to install the Amazon App Store app and then start installing apps from there. That was really easy. The camera appears to be good. I'm pretty happy so far.

The only bad thing I've found is that there is a bug in how Tango works on this phone. The picture that you send from the front camera is rotated 90 degrees. I checked on the Tango forum, and I was not the first to report this. The others were all on various Samsung phones, and it sounded like the problem started after the recent update of the Tango software. My voice is also going in and out, so I have to hold the phone pretty close and speak loudly - just during Tango calls

40H80 Problem TV will not switch to non antenna inputs


Sounds like you have a bad tuner. It is not uncommon for solder joints to deteriorate over a period of time and loose continuity. If you are handy with a soldering iron, you can try to fix it yourself but I really recommend leaving it to a professional.
