Question about Toshiba MW20F51 20 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

We own a Toshiba MW20FP1 Television set/vcr/dvd

We have standard cable and on the other televisions in the house they work on all channels. On the toshiba one it only works on channels 2-13. I did the auto channel selection that our cable person suggested, but the after channel 14 they are grey and white. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Lisa

If you look in the back of your manual under troubleshooting you will see this particular question addressed. In the beginning of setup you must designate wether the incoming signal is from an antenna or from cable. If you have to have a cable converter box then your TV must be on channel 3 or 4.

How do i set up my tv with my sony vcr


Hi Katie.. If you are using a coaxial cable to connect your TV and VCR, the TV needs to be tuned to channel 3 or 4. If you are using the Yellow, red and white cables, your TV should be on video mode to work.

Sanyo tv model ds27930 not supporting my ps3


Whatever input you are using is either damaged or the tv is on the wrong channel and I'm sure you don't have it set on the wrong channel.

1. Another method would be to connect an old VCR to the TV through the cable plug on the back of the TV.

2. Then plug your PS3 or dvd player into the VCR's rca inputs on the back.

This works but your television has to have a cable plug on the back.

I have a toshiba 36 inch television, magnabox dvd player and cable box hooked up. I can't get the television to channel 4 and I don't have the manual to get the remote for it to work. We use the remote for...


Oh yes clear on what your saying, Channel 4 needs to have signal to it during the scan!! So i hope this VCR or whatever you hooking up to it is set for channel 4 and its on and playing so a signal is marched threw it when your autoscanning. Without a remote this is a priceless fail i would recommend www.remotes.com get the remote for your TV and you should be able to navagate the menu fine. You also can put all you stuff on inputs to advoid the tuner all togeather.

Thanks we understadn what your saying and would like to help you in this manner but without a remote that works its will be hard to explain over email but please scan the channels when the thing is playing so it can detect a clear signal.

please do help us out by pressing the accept button for our efforts today!

How do you hook up the dvd player to the tv with a vcr hooked up to the tv


Leave the cable box powered on but disconnected from the TV or VCR. All other components should be disconnected and unplugged, giving clear and easy access to all connections. If components sit in an entertainment unit, make sure all A/V cables can reach the RF modulator and the cable from the modulator can easily reach the television.
  • Step 2 Hookup the first coaxial cable from cable box output, usually labeled "TV," "TV out" or "Out to TV" to the cable "In" on the VCR. Connect the second coaxial cable from the VCR's out to "TV" to the coaxial input on the RF Modulator.
  • Step 3 Connect the third coax cable from the coaxial cable "Out" jack on the RF Modulator to the coax cable "Input" on the television.
  • Step 4 Take one A/V cable, connect the red (right audio channel,) white (left audio channel) and yellow (video) from DVD player's "Output," to the corresponding DVD "inputs" on the RF Modulator. Place components as desired but still disconnected from power. Plug in all power cables including the RF Modulator's into the surge protected outlet strip.
  • Step 5 Make sure the Channel select switch usually found on the back of the VCR and the Channel select switch on the RF Modulator are both set to Channel 3. This channel is used on the television to view your components.
  • Step 6 Turn on the power strip and turn on the TV. Cable reception should come on as usual. Set the TV to Channel 3 and turn on the VCR. With VCR on test it by playing a video tape. The RF Modulator should sense the signal and automatically switch to "VCR."
  • Step 7 Switch off the VCR and with the television still on channel 3, turn on the DVD player. As the RF Modulator senses the DVD player signal and switches to DVD, its welcome screen should be seen on the television. Play a DVD to test and once you're done with the DVD turn it off and the cable should come back on.

    Not able to connect Sharp Model 25h-M60 to Laptop or DVD player


    Use a VCR as a A/B switch. Run Cable signal into VCR. Run coax cable out of VCR into television. Connect DVD to VCR (line in) using RCA cables. To use DVD, set VCR channel to L1 or L2 or AUX, depending on VCR type. Set VCR to channel 3 or 4 to watch television. VCR must be powered up to watch DVD.

    You should be able to use your remote control to do this.Your channel 73 is more than likely UHF 73 so you need to put your tv in the antenna setting rather than cable setting. Once you do this just input 73 with your remote. Hope this helps! Stargazer
