    I tried that and it did not work. I have cable so of course I have two remotes and I pressed TV/VCR on Toshiba remote and cable on cable remote

  • tomijean2 Apr 04, 2008

    I was watching VHS tapes on my Toshiba MW30G71 Combination Flat Color TV and Video Cassette recorder / DVD video player. I must have pressed a wrong button or series of buttons as now I can not get TV. I have cable service and have a remote for both and have pressed TV/VCR on TV remote and TV and Cable on cable remote. Thank you.

  • tomijean2 Apr 04, 2008

    It is a combination and the button is labeled TV/VCR and it is on channel 3

  • tomijean2 Apr 04, 2008

    I was watch videos and when I would stop, eject tapes it would go back to TV. I was also stoppng, rewinding and fast forwarding. Then all of a sudden it did not go back to TV, so I must have pressed a wrong button or series of buttons. There is no sound and tons of snow.

    I unplugged the TV combo and the cable box and rebooted. Still no sound and tons of snow.

    It is a combo TV/VCR/DVD

    The VCR and DVD are built into the TV.

  • tomijean2 Apr 04, 2008

    Channel 3

  • tomijean2 Apr 04, 2008

    It is set on cable

  • tomijean2 Apr 04, 2008

    No, just the VCR, not the TV. TV is still tons of snow and no sound.

  • tomijean2 Apr 04, 2008

    The only choices on TV setup menu are either TV or Cable and I am on Cox Cable so I chose cable.

  • tomijean2 Apr 04, 2008

    I put in a DVD and it worked beautifully.

  • tomijean2 Apr 04, 2008

    VCR and DVD are working no TV

  • tomijean2 Apr 04, 2008

    The VCR and DVD were never a problem, The problem is No TV. The VCR and DVD are still working and still no TV. Please can someone help?

Hi,

If I may add to the other suggestions...

Depending on how your cable box is connected to the Toshiba MW30G71 combo. The simple connection maybe:
1. Cable box through RF OUT connected to RF IN of your TV combo. Toshiba set to Ch 3. or
2. Cable box through Audio/Video OUT connected to Audio/Video IN of your TV combo. Toshiba set to Aux or Video IN.

Though the cable box may be connected in any of the other INPUT selections such as HDMI, S-video, Component Video and would require that you cycle through the different input selection/choices.

If problem persist, you may need to do the set-up procedures again on the cable box.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Of course to verify which of the many inputs your Toshiba is using to be connected to the cable box, you need to visual check the connection points/terminals. Pls determine what jacks are used in the cable box and into what jacks they go into in your Toshiba. Thereafter using your remote select that particular INPUT.

    Hi again,

    You rated my proposed solution as "FixYa", may I assume that your issue was resolved? If yes, glad to be of assistance and appreciate the rating. If not, pls post again that we may walk you through the input selection process.

    Cheer.

    Hi again tomijean2,

    At your convenience, would you pls visually check and note down how the cable box is connected to the rear of the Toshiba. Knowing how it is connected would greatly simplify the source selection.

    Looking forward to your postback.

  • Louie  Role
    Louie Role Apr 04, 2008

    Additionally, may I pls inquire the brand and model of your cable box.

  • Louie  Role
    Louie Role Apr 04, 2008

    Alternately, you can try winging it.

    Selecting the video input source using the INPUT button which doubles as the ZOOM button (left side of the Channel UP/DOWN). Press INPUT to view a signal from another device connected to your TV, such as the Cable Box. You can select ANT, VIDEO1, VIDEO2 (on the front panel), ColorStream
    HD or HDMI depending on which input jacks you used to connect your Cable Box.

    Pressing INPUT on the remote control displays the current signal source. To change the input source, press INPUT again or press 0-4.

1. you are on the correct channel or input correct?
2. Have you tried pressing the tv/vcr button on the remote
3. Have you tried shutting down both, unplugging them and seeing if something resets?

How did you notice this stopped working, while you were using the vcr or did you try to use it and it didn't work, please give me as much info on this as possible, thank you.

Is there sound at all?

    everything else is working, all channels? have you tried pressing the button labeled TV/VCR or ANTENNA, because the screen may be that, The snowy screen has no noise when turned up?

  • Benjamin Patri
    Benjamin Patri Apr 04, 2008

    check to see if the connection might have gotten lose somehow between the tv and the vcr

  • Benjamin Patri
    Benjamin Patri Apr 04, 2008

    do any channels work at all on or off of the vcr?

  • Benjamin Patri
    Benjamin Patri Apr 04, 2008

    I think a cable is lose and you should just try to push all of the cables in to make sure and hopefully this problem won't happen again. So the vcr/dvd works but now no tv channels are working?

  • Benjamin Patri
    Benjamin Patri Apr 04, 2008

    maybe when operating the vcr, something knocked loose within the tv/vcr/dvd combo, and the piece of metal or whatever it was got back in place

    Is everything working now?

  • Benjamin Patri
    Benjamin Patri Apr 04, 2008

    so dvd and vcr are working? that is good

    Are the channels from the cable box working?

    when you press the display button, in the top right corner, what is the channel on?

  • Dave MacPhee
    Dave MacPhee Apr 04, 2008

    Another thought.. When you go into the menu, and select TV Setup, what is the TV/Cable set to?

  • Dave MacPhee
    Dave MacPhee Apr 04, 2008

    * (you need to be on TV/VCR mode) for that menu

  • Dave MacPhee
    Dave MacPhee Apr 04, 2008

    maybe try channel 2?

  • Dave MacPhee
    Dave MacPhee Apr 04, 2008

    I would assume that you have taken out the VHS... Try pressing the stop button twice..?

  • Dave MacPhee
    Dave MacPhee Apr 04, 2008

    if you put in a DVD, and change to DVD mode, does it work ok?

Unit will play a VHS when using button manually. It doesnt matter which button is pressed on the remote, the display on the unit says 'DVD 3'


Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician.

Toshiba tv 40rv525u has started to change channels


My TV 40RV525U changing channels, menus itself for few months ( I use antenna).
my son tried to stop the channel scrolling by enter weird number into the channel to stop it scrolling such as 555, 777..
later, it turn on off by itself and unable to hold on a channel
I call Toshiba customer service and they ask money $25 for troubleshooting but I denied since I do not want to waste money and time.

Now, I found how to fix it myself.

In my case, something was wrong with the signal comes from the button control on the left side of the TV.
========================
What I did
========================
unplug the power cord.
Remove back cover.
Look into the motherboard ( biggest green at the center).

First, I disconnect a connector on the motherboard come from the IR board that receive the wireless signal control ( meaning the remote is disable).
I turn on the TV, press on Menu button on the TV side. Menu is still scrolling.

I turn off TV, disconnect power cord and connect the IR connector back to the motherboard.
I then disconnect the nearby connector that comes from the side control buttons.

Turn on the TV by remote, press menu button on the remote to check. The menu stays.

DONE.

I use electric tape to seal off the connector and let it hanging there.
Close the TV back panel

I have been watching TV for 3 nights without menus/channels scrolling.
NO AVAILABLE red message when watching DVD is no longer existed.

Hope this help someone else.

I have an old emerson TV/VCR (Digital Tracking VHSHQ) The TV works fine, but when I put a tape in it is ejected and part of the tape stays inside, but can be pulled out.


Try a VHS Cleaning Tape Cassette. Follow it's instructions. If no better result it's not worth throwing away money on having repairs done but better put toward, if you can afford to, buying:
Option 1. A VHS/DVD player (combo as these are known) and plug that into the Emerson AV input.
Option Two: A VHS/DVD twin recorder combo deck - and plug that in.
Then start on copying any VHS tapes you cherish to DVD on this device.
Option Three: Forget the Emerson except for just using as a TV and buy a new TV with DVD player built in - the latest type of combo.
(I'm having to guess whether you've just used tapes to watch or record and watch)

Trying to hookup vhs analog player to hd proscan


your toshiba player should have output composite video and audio which are color coded Yellow for video, red and white for audio same goes for proscan hdtv. connect between the two keeping in mind color of cables. If the toshiba player is really old you can connect the RF cable output to antenna input to the proscan tv and watch taped programs from the player on channel 3 of the proscan tv. If then you want to keep the hookup and still watch HDTV connect the antenna to the toshiba vcr and when you shut off the vcr you can now watch the hdtv channels as usual because now you are bypassing the antenna to the Proscan tv. Hope this Helps..
