    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.

    The VCR and DVD are built into the TV.

    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.

    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?

Want to record VHS to DVD on my Toshiba DVR620KU but do not want to connect to my TV set. Is this possible? My TV is older and does not have the input/output jacks. I just want to put in a VHS tape and a...


If the entire VHS is full then you can easily transfer the VHS contents to the DVD. The video will play while it is recording onto the DVD, but you don't have to have it hooked up to any TV for it to record. Now if you don't know how long the VHS content is that you want to record to DVD, then you will have to hook up the player to a TV so that you can press stop when you reach the end of the content you want recorded. At least this is true in the way that I use to transfer VHS to DVD:

1) Turn on the unit
2) Insert VHS tape
3) Insert DVD-+R or DVD-+ RW
4) Using remote, press VCR
5)Using remote, press play then pause the tape where you want to start recording.
6)Using remote, press DVD
7) Using the remote, press DUBBING. The VHS should start to play and the DVD should start recording

When using this method, don't hit the RECORD button!

I hope this helps!

I cannot get it to record a vhs tape to a dvd. The vcr will play tapes and the dvd player will play dvds. I need some one to walk me through what buttons to push to record.


You need a remote to setup the dvd record and vcr record. Then you have to do dvd initialization perhaps before you can dub from tape to dvd?

I cannot record using a DVD/VHS player.


You can record. From antenna to converter box, from converter box to vcr. From vcr to TV.
TV on Channnel 3 VCR on channel 3, and set channel on converter box. Then Record.

Time recording works the same way, but you can set for only one channel at a time. Tht is the only restriction that I have not overcome. The converter box sets the channel. Gee Whizz

Toshiba 26AV502U (new) video dropout if VHS tapeis not perfect


Had problem checked by local outfit called "Circuit Pro"; their analysis was compatibility.
Actual answer was that the Toshiba required a better quality input from "any" VHS source.
I finally took a "less than perfect" VHS tape with me when I returned the Toshiba TV to the store and demonstrated the problem to one of the TV sales people. He played the VHS tape through a display VHS/DVD player to three different brands of TV. The picture was often "black screen" on a Toshiba, but was merely poor quality on the other two brands. I upgraded to a Sony KDL26M4000 from the Toshiba 26AV502U.

Stuck in Progressive Scan Mode...please help!


There should be a switch on the DVD player that is makred 'progressive/interlaced.' You need to flick this switch til it says interlaced, as obviously your TV cannot view progressive signals. It may be on the back of the player, or under a flap on the front.
