Toshiba TV/DVD Combo Model MD14H63

This just started on 12/23/07, I went to turn on my new TV and the power light flashed and then it turned itself off. I pulled out my owners manuel and followed the instructions of unplugging for 5 seconds and plugging back in and it still will not turn on.

If I hold down the power button then it will turn on and I will get a picture but I have to hold the power button down for it to stay on and I cannot change channels, raise/lower the volume, etc. It will then turn itself back off.

I saw the one solution listed, do I have to take my TV apart and if so where do I find the items listed to test?!

Re: Toshiba TV/DVD Combo Model MD14H63

We have two Toshiba MD14H63 TV/DVD combos. Both recently experienced the identical problem: turned off, when turned on, only one channel displayed, whenever channel change or any other button was pushed, tv turned itself off. I placed the tv's face down on a towel, removed the 5 large screws and one small screw enabling me to remove the backs of the TV's. Turning the TV's back on their bases, looking into the right side of the circuit board, you can see a small 125V/5amp fast acting fuse. All I did was remove the fuse to see if it had blown. They hadn't. I then replaced the fuses, tipped the TV's back on to their screens, reassembled the backs of the TV's, reconnected them to the cable and and plugged them in and, voila, they worked. I have no idea why. Some time later, I again experienced the TV's going out and not coming back on at all. I repeated the same procedure and one is working okay again so far. I am going to put the TV's on surge protectors and see if that helps keep them from going out again. Hope this helps someone. If you attempt this procedure, please be extraordinariliy careful not to touch any part of the electronics of the TV. There is a capacitor back there somewhere that has enough accumulated voltage to kill you if you haven't properly discharged it with the correct resistor connections. I just used insuled needlenose pliers to carefully pry out the fuse and re-install it. It is delicate but can be done.

Re: Toshiba TV/DVD Combo Model MD14H63

I have the same problem with this model as Guest, who posted on 01/03/2008: power on, red light, immediate shut-off. The sticker on the television says it was manufactured in April 2007. I think there should be a warranty on it; I suppose I'll be calling Toshiba soon if it doesn't start working. Maybe important to note for any potential buyers, as well.

What do I do when my Emerson TV keeps turning off by itself?

This is probably due to dry solders in the power supply area of the tv... next time when it powers off give it a whack on the side and see if will just light up for a moment.. If it doesn't just open the tv and check for dry solders, loose contacts and faulty capacitors.. PS:I would not task some one without experience in electronics to handle this one. This shouldn't cost you much even if you hire a tech anyway..

Need a remote control for my 14" and manual

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers for spare part supplies and Driver downloads (if applicable) as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

I have a Toshiba TV/DVD/VCR combo model # MW27F51-had it for a couple of years. Turned it on, have sound but no picture. I have the cover off the back of it now.

sound like a defective part inside the set. i could tell you what one went bad, this is not user servicable, and could shock you bad. i would take it for service or get a new one. due to the cost of these against the cost of repair.rule of electronics-if the cost of repair is 60% of a new one you should not repair it. good luck! hope this helps!

Toshiba televsion is saying digital channel signal strenth is low

if you're using antenna, (most likely)you need to adjust your antenna to where it picks up the best signal. The picture comes in clear with good audio and doesn't pixelate often.

Toshiba TV/DVD combo turns on then off again.

try letting it sit for 15-20 minutes unplugged from the wall and maybe try another outlet depending on if u got plugged in to a power strip, possibly pulling to much power from that perticular outlet.
