My MW20FM3 combo has lost

The led sensor of your tv is may be damage in this case it must be check in actual testing of the unit, to check if there is dc voltage supplying the sensor or the resistor is damage that limit the dc voltage to sensor. if you are handy in electronic parts I think it is easy for you to check the fault, but if not you should check first the tv if you can remove it's parts because this tv combos has lots of connectors. Or you can contact a service technician to do it for and save you from stress, If you are willing to do it your self be sure to unplug the unit before removing the back cover, and put a label in all connectors that will be disconnected. good day and best regards.

All of a sudden when

Their is no human error to that problem, your optical lens already weak or just dirty try to use a cd cleaner or if you have a knowledge in electronic you can clean it manually by using a cotton buds and wipe it gently but be sure not to touch the optical lens or try to adjust the potentiometer below the optical lens or you should contact a repairman. best regards.

Sound but no picture

This indicates a failure in the horizontal output section where the high voltage for the CRT is produced and the deflection signal for the horizontal sweep.
Some parts may be available for this set although it is doubtful whether the flyback transformer is still made. Some parts for you set can be found here:

Access menu on toshiba tv/dvd

Bad news. you need the remote, or a remote anyway. An inexpensive Phillips Universal remote can be had from nearly any hardware or large grocery store. It is easy to program and absolutely necessary to use the TV menu.

V-chip code forgotten

I found this to work on my Toshiba TV/VHS combo MV19M4 after trying others suggestions that had worked on similar models but nothing worked on mine. Maybe it will work for yours. 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.

Toshiba Child lock

You might want to try the same solution for the V-Chip (this might be the same thing as the child lock, it is worth a try) protection to see if this will help:

Changing V-Chip Settings for MV13L3, TV/VCR Combo 2001.

-Unplug your tv for 1 minute.
-Plug your tv in and turn it on.
-hold the volume down button on the tv at the same time you hold the "0" button down on the remote. This will bring up the "Set V-Chip" blue screen.
-Enter "0000" for the password and hit enter. Enter "0000" to confirm the password and hit enter.
-This will bring up the V-Chip set page. From this page you can: Turn Off the V-Chip, Change the Limits for viewing, etc.
-If you turn off the V-Chip setting, you will not have to deal with this problem again.

How come my 10-year-old toshiba tv now goes to screensaver in the middle of a program I'm watching

Hi, Please factory reset your toshiba tv or update your tv settings so that the screensaver is disabled. Either of these 2 actions should help you overcome this issue. If you don't see a screensaver option on your remote, please reference the table of contents within your manual. Thank you.
