Re: I cant get the tv to go to higher channels

Most tv's have an Antenna mode and a cable mode. If you have cable tv service, the cable mode must be selected in order to receive channels higher than 23. Then you must auto program the channels thru the menu screen on the tv to receive the channels above 23. If you have a house antenna or rabbit ears, its hit or miss on receiving all VHF and UHV channels.

Bill, your set has a bad tuner, only fix for that is to R & R the tuner, 2nd option would be to use your vcrs tuner input and then RCA out cables from vct to input on back of tv, If you have never done this re-post and I`ll walk you through it, let me know, BMW Rider

Second toshiba tv and they both do the same thing

Hi, It is possible that your Toshiba is set to receive aerial TV programs and not Cable TV programs. You need to go to the set-up menu (via remote) and go to the air/cable selection. Choose cable and then auto search/scan. This is a generic procedure and should work with your particular brand/model but the terms/names may just be a bit different. You may also consult the users manual for the exact procedure. Hope this give you an idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Tv will not change channels

Sounds like an eeprom problem or a microprocessor problem??? Also make sure the tv didnt lose its channel memory by reprogramming the channels feature in the menu. Good Luck
