My television has sound but no picture. I can not program the television because I can not see the screen menu. I also have tried to change the antennae but this does nothing to the picture's reception.

Do you have any ideas to correct this problem. There is no warranty.

My Toshiba required replacement of two of the vertical filters/capacitors. Doesn't take long and the parts are inexpensive, but requires a repairman.

Hello uuka,

You have vertical collapse. This is most often caused by a defective vertical output integrated circuit, an open dropping resistor which feeds the supply voltage to the I.C., one or more defective electrolytic capacitors in the vertical circuit or something as simple as bad solder connections. The latter will usually manifest itself as an intermittent failure. Less likely, but stilla possibility is a defective yoke, but this a rare.

Unless you are handy with a soldering iron and have some experience this is definitely something I suggest that you refer to a qualified technician. Depending on the actual cure for the problem, this would typically be under $100 in my shop, but we are in a small town and prices are cheap. I would definitely recommend a repair on this since it can not be replaced. They don't make a TV/DVD/VCR combination any longer and the picture quality on these Toshiba/Orion combos has been very good over time.

Hope this helped and don't forget to rate...

How can I change settings from Japanese to English?

I'm not sure if you're asking about an iPod... but here's the answer:
  1. On the Home screen, tap Settings. It's the icon that looks like a gear.
  2. On the next screen, tap General. It's the option with a similar gear.
  3. Using iOS 8 or later: Scroll all the way to the end of the list and tap Language & Region. It's the option just before the one that starts with "iTunes".
  4. On the next screen, tap "[Device] Language". It's the first option.
  5. Pick your language from the list. Then tap Done, the word or words in blue in the upper right corner.
  6. An alert will ask you to confirm the new language. Tap the first option.
After a few seconds, your device should return to the Home screen and display the language you selected.

My GPS only shows a "non" English language. How do I fix this?


You did not mention which gps systems do you have. Anyway giving you details of tom-tom gps language change instructions.

Change the language settings on your TomTom GPS device. If your TomTom GPS receiver is set to the wrong language, change the current language to the language of your choice. Perform a reset on the device as described in Step 1. When your GPS unit turns back on, tap the button in the lower right corner of the screen to continue. Tap the next screen to access the GPS receiver's main menu. Tap on the wrench icon to access the "Change Preferences" setting screen. Scroll through the "Change Preferences" screens until you see the "Change Language" icon, identified by three flags. Tap the "Change Language" icon and choose your desired language from the list. Depending on which language you chose, you may be asked to choose a new voice for turn-by-turn navigation.

For Garmin device:-

Try this below

Touch the Wrench icon which is located on the screen with the Magnifying Glass and Map icon
Touch the Wrench icon
Touch the down arrow
Touch the Lips/Mouth icon
Touch the top right blue box
Touch the up arrow until you see American English
Touch American English
Touch OK
This should now be in English.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

I have a Samsung mobile GT-B3410 and the language has been accidently changed to one I dont know, which buttons do I press to get it back to English?

Hi Stephen,

I had the same problem happen to me when I was twiddling with the language buttons just 2 days ago. Today I found out was language it was in by using the google search. Typed in one of the words and just asked what language it was. It turned out to be Indonesian. I then went through another search to get a translation of a few words from Indonesian to English and from there I found out the Indonesian word for Language and looked for that on the screen and from there found the word English.

Hope this helps: -

- Press Menu (icon)
- Press Settings (blue clog wheel at bottom row)
- Press Phone Setting (phone and a clog wheel) 4 row from the top
- Press Language (first row)
- Press English - row will highlighted in blue

To save this setting I pressed either the middle button (that takes you back to the last screen)
I'm not sure but it was one of those 3 buttons.

and wella the English Language came back to me. Thanks Goodness. Good luck, and glad you shared your problem online because I only found the solution after I read about yours and while fiddling with my phone.

Tap the Change preference icon. It is the one with the blue wrench to the left of thae orange arrow on the top picture. Once you are in change preferences, use the right arrow to explore the options. Find the icon that is shown on the next picture (the Flags). Use the Up and down arrows that will show to the right of the list of languages to select the language you want.

In the following screen capture, the status bar (the blue bar) is horizontal.
To change the volume you tap the status bar near the middle and a volume slider control appears. Move slider to the right to increase volume.

Garmin powered up in wrong language! German vice English!

Therecan be 2-3 choices under languages. One being the voice that speaks to you, and the other, the text on screen you read. Go back in and make sure that both are set to english.
