Question about Toshiba MD14H63 14" TV/DVD Combo

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?!

    When I press the power button it turns on for about a second and turns off. I know it is getting power because the red light turns on but it won't stay on.

    I have the same problem.

    I contacted my Toshiba repair center and was informed that it was the remote control sensor. It would be not worth repairing since the labor to repair was more then the unit was worth.

    Toshiba will not send me the part to repair it my self.

    After the 90 day parts and labor guarantee is over the 1 year parts guatantee is worthless.

    Toshiba maintains that this is not a common problem, so no help is forthcoming.

    I, for one, will contact their main office and let them know what they can do with their 1 year parts guarantee.

    This model is only one year old and I believe that a design flaw requires an extension of their parts and labor guanatee to correct our problem and save their reputation. Ifg you agree I suggest you do the same

    one day the tv flashed and turned off. it will not turn back on, but will attempt to do so then turn off. I CAN get it to turn on if I hold down specifically the remote control power button, but if I let up on the button or hit any other buttons (i.e., volume, even cable buttons) the tv will turn off again. When I hit power button I can hear tv attempting to turn on inside, sounds like a broken PC...??

    TV will not stay on after releasing power on/off button.. Prior to completely quitting, TV channels with picture would come on briefly then message would go to "no signal".
    Now the low light stays on to indicate power to the unit but the unit will not continue to stay powered up fpr channel selection.

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.

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.

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.

Power light flashing/ no picture

I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
