You didn't specify the model so here's the generic trial and error method that works for most TV s

Press and hold the menu button for 10 seconds or until it says the panel is unlocked.
If that doesn't work, start trying the same method with each of the buttons on the TV.

Update firmware lcd tv toshiba 32pb10e


How to Update Toshiba TV Firmware
  1. Plug a USB flash drive in to an available USB port on your computer and copy any files from the drive that you want to keep into a separate folder on your computer.
  2. Format the drive as a FAT32 file system. This erases all of the files currently on the USB flash drive.
  3. Click here to open the Toshiba Support home page.
  4. Click "Product Support" in the menu along the top of the home page. The Product Support drop-down menu opens.
  5. Select "Televisions" beneath Choose Category.
  6. Select your type of Toshiba TV beneath Choose Family. For example, options include 3D TV, LCD TV and LED TV.
  7. Select your Toshiba TV model beneath Choose Model.
  8. Click the red "Go" button to the right of the Choose Model section after selecting your Toshiba TV model. The product support page for that specific TV model will be displayed.
  9. Select the "Downloads" tab. If there are no downloads available for your TV model, either your won't be able to click the tab or there will be a message within the tab that says there are no downloads at this time. If this is the case, no firmware updates are available for your Toshiba TV. Check back periodically, as firmware updates are released as needed and aren't scheduled.
  10. If there is content in the Downloads section, look in the Category section for an item titled TV Firmware. If this option doesn't appear, no firmware update is available. However, if this option does appear, click the clickable link associated with the firmware. The TV Firmware Update and Release Notes dialog box appears. In this dialog box you can see the size of the firmware update file, when it was released, exactly what it addresses and more.
  11. Click the red "Download Now" button and save the file to your connected USB flash drive.
  12. Extract the contents of the ZIP file on the USB flash drive.
  13. Disconnect the USB flash drive from the computer after the firmware update file saves successfully to the device.
  14. Power on the Toshiba TV and then connect the USB flash drive to the USB port on the Toshiba TV.
  15. Wait a few moments for the "Firmware file is detected in USB" dialog box to appear on the screen. Select "Yes" to update the firmware. A progress bar displays on the screen. Be careful not to turn your TV off while the firmware is updating. The progress bar changes to a "Success!" message after the update successfully installs.
  16. Disconnect the USB flash drive from the TV and then restart the TV. After the TV restarts you can resume using the TV as you normally would.

Menu option automatically appears


Reset the TV to its factory settings. You might have to enter its service mode to do this. A skilled work indeed. Anyway visit the site named 'Electro-help' for more details. Check this link and select the site named above. View it in 'Flip card' option, which can be selected from the drop down box menu at the left top corner or the display window. It will make search easy. Some times, the ads attached with each posts might help you to find the availability of spare parts. There are more than 640 posts to different brand TVs.

My sis gave me an old samsung tv. It is just for my son and his x-box. Unfortunately there is no remote control. When switched on it is saying PANEL LOCK. Is there any way i can fix this. Model No TI-14N3....


hello you could try this The front panel of the COMBI VISION can be locked to prevent it
from being used by young children for example.
1 To lock the front panel, display the television menu by pressing MENU
( ).
2 Select the SETUP option by pressing the P ▲ or ▼ buttons the required
number of times.
3 Press the + button.
4 Select the PANEL LOCK option by pressing the P ▲ or ▼ buttons the
required number of times.
5 Select ON by pressing the + button.
Result: The buttons on the front panel no longer have any effect.
6 To unlock the front panel, set the PANEL LOCK option to OFF.Another option would be to buy a universal remote from say - Argos carefully open it and use your own batteries and use that remote to unlock the TV then return the remote to Argos or if keep the remote if the original is lost. i hope it helps
