Lost Codes -Need Remedy

A friend gave me a used Toshiba combo set MV19M4 to replace a failing 15 year old Sanyo. When I first tried the set all was fine. So I unplugged it and let it sit for about a month (until the Sanyo finally died) before switching sets. I went to watch the SciFi Channel and got a notice on the screen that the set is V-Chip Protected and I am suppose to enter a code so I can watch the TV. My friend has forgotten the codes that he used. So now here I am a 53 year old shut-in on a fixed income ( unable to go out and just buy another set) who is bored to death, having no enjoyable TV I am getting frustrated enough with this situation to throw a freakin' hammer through what now seems to be a useless piece of equipment. Can you help me please? Is there any way to reset the set?

I scoured the internet on how to reset the V-CHIP on my Toshiba TV/VHS combo MV19M4 and could not find the solution. I tried others suggestions that had worked on similar models but nothing worked so I started experimenting and I figured it out! Follow these steps:

1: Unplug the TV for 1 minute then plug it back in.
2: In the menu select "TV Set Up".
3: Move the blinking block to beside "V-CHIP Set" BUT DO NOT SELECT IT.
4: Hold in the number 1 button on the remote.
5: Hold in the volume down button on the TV.

Your TV will turn off. Give it a few seconds to reset itself and then turn it back on and you will have to completely reprogram your settings. When you go to the V-CHIP settings it will ask for your new code.

Voila!

Need Toshiba remote access code for this product so I can use a universal remote to operate the VCR and DVD


remote codes are set by the manufacurer of the remote not the tv. if there are any others not listed in instructions for remote, the manufacturer of remote would have them. most combo unit are not able to be programmed into universal remotes due to the fact that there are alot of specialized function buttons on original remote. you can obtain a replacement remote thru toshiba

Toshiba TV/DVD combo turns on then off again.


try letting it sit for 15-20 minutes unplugged from the wall and maybe try another outlet depending on if u got plugged in to a power strip, possibly pulling to much power from that perticular outlet.
