Yes you can still find a DTV, Digital to Analog OTA tuner, converter box in some locations. Amazon has a number of them listed here, https://www.amazon.com/analog-to-digital-dtv-converters/b?ie=UTF8&node=979935011 . Some even have an option for recording video to a USB drive. For your Toshiba 56H80 TV, make sure to chose one with RF, composite or component video output on the converter. (Note: not all models are in stock. Other vendors will have some as well.)

(My experience with the converter boxes from the start of the change over is that some models failed easily. The power supply transformer failed on one model with the USB recording option. Another got hit by a surge during a thunderstorm.)

Replace the unit: If you were a trained technician, I can see repairs, but unless you have that ability; replace the Toshiba and get on with your life.

What are you measuring it with? There are peak and RMS meters, I dont see that voltage being an issue especially if it is on a load

When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.

Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia
Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea
Region 6: China
The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.

Use Google to find these programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.
Region codes are a legacy from the film makers, who only allowed the DVD format after the manufacturers promised the content could be made, so not everyone in the world could play one disk (copy protection)
No commercial player is made without region limitations.

You can make a copy of any and all protected or copy written material.
You are allowed by law to make ONE ONLY! Upload DVD or whatever to your PC. Make an IMAGE of it on your PC then burn the IMAGE of it to disc. It will be identical to the original containing all copywrite protection. It is just like making a backup of your hard drive, being a virtual "IMAGE" of the original.

The protection circuit is sensing a load problem, a malfunctioning laser assembly or a failure in the audio/video processing circuitry, far cheaper to replace the DVD player.

Hi Rebecca, usually batteries are replaced by sliding the cover from the the back of the remote control.

If you could send pictures of the back I can confirm the proper procedure.

Toshiba... | Answered on Mar 01, 2020

I suggest you double check all the plugs and sockets on all the boards of the TV. It's possible you could have disconnected one by accident, or not put one back. Check also for bad solder joints or anything that could have been damaged during disassembly of the set.

  1. Using the remote control, press the following button sequence in a timely fashion: 1 , 2, 3, 4 (This will release the "Retail Lock" mode)
  2. Enter the User Menu and locate Reset Factory Defaults for the subject model.
  3. Complete the Factory Defaults reset.
  4. Power on the TV.
You can reset and eliminate the lock on some televisions without the remote, using a few tactics. Hold the power button for five seconds. The television will automatically restart. If the lock is still on, unplug the television and remove the battery from the back panel of the television.

Fault with the main power supply regulator board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
