Hi I have the same model. you will need a remote that came with it...

u need to access the menu button on the remote and use direction cursors to select special features.
once highlighted press down cursor to select "panel lock" then select right cursor to switch off (as it will be on) then exit menu.

it should now work

Hello I need the universal remote code for my toshiba 40pw13p please.

If you wish to get more details; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Common set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the "device's brand name list" in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. Surf the sites by type in the brand name to your set, in its search box.

Tv/video switch won't switch

The model indicated is a older Toshiba rear projection(if another brand/model let me know)

You should be able to select the rear inputs either via the remote (original one) or with the input (video) button on the set.

If in the menu they are grayed out--it means they have been locked out.

Failing that a serious problem exists in the set's microprocessor.

Hint: if you have not tried it UNPLUG THE SET FOR A WHILE TO SEE IF WHEN YOU PLUG IT BACK IT WILL RESET and restore the inputs.

Convergence on my menu is no longer there

You need the service manual, I don`t know about these particular set, but on Toshiba`s, you had to press the menu button on the set and while holding that in, I think you pressed the red button on the remote. This got you into service mode. If the convergence went out while you were watching it, I don`t think adjustments will cure your fault, it sounds like the Driver chip may have failed which drives the convergence coils on the tube necks. Is it just one/two of the colours?? Is it out in the centre?? Is it out around the edges?? If you do intend adjust anything, make sure you write EVERY setting down first including EVERY mode, It is a VERY time consuming job and even then you`ll NEVER get it perfect. You have to repeat the whole setup in EVERY mode, eg: Widescreen, 4:3, Stretch, 16:9 etc. You`ll also need a signal generator to give you a steady picture while performing any adjustments and when you alter the brightness and contrast, this will affect the convergence also. DO NOT alter the binary settings of the set, these tell the micro what the set is fitted with, eg: Nicam, Freeview, NTSC, PAL etc, etc. If I remember correctly, there are about 300 settings which have to be performed in sequence and when you alter one setting in one mode, this can affect another setting in another mode. It`s a real nightmare, believe me. The only trouble is, if you do start to alter the settings and you find that there is a faulty component, You`ve got to try to get it back to the settings that they were before you started your tweeking. If you do alter the binary code settings of the set, then there`s a very good chance that the set won`t come back on. It took me three days to sort one set out once and even then the customer complained about the convergence. Ian

Ive got toshiba 40PW13P rear projection tv and it has convergence problem where more then one colours apear on the picture.

Well, you didn't ask what you wanted but I think you should try 2 things. One; unplug TV's power cord for 5 minutes, reboot. Two go into the customers menu and try to adjust the convergence.

If these fail call a factory authorized service dealer. Good luck.

Greenish yellowish tint on the tv

I have been advised that the color/light engine of the TV fails often and will typically create a green tint on this unit. I have one on order to get a replacement installed. BTW, it is not "user serviceable" and (for me) will require moving the TV to the repair shop for the change-out.
