Hi, David.

This unit does not have a TV tuner built in. It can record only from a video/audio source such as a satellite receiver or cable box. That's why you can't find anything in the manual about programming a channel. It doesn't offer that capability.

Not the answer you were looking for, but that's what they give you. The only solution I can offer is to keep your old VCR or pick one up at a thrift shop, and use it as the signal source. Program it to come on at the desired time on the channel you want, and use its video/audio outputs as the source for your recorder. Program the recorder to start at the same time.

Kinda klunky, but it would work.

Try going into the picture settings in the options. Many Toshiba TVs have the option to move the picture up, down, left, and right. See if you are able to position the TV to the left more.

Also, see if there is a reset button in the options. A setting may have been switched that caused this.

Bad solder connections on an older TV is common. Check all your solder grounds on anything mounted on heatsinks. The other thing is bad capacitors. Always suspect the 160 volt to 250 volt at 1 MF, 2.2Mf or 4.7Mf for being bad. This is true for many repairs for any brand of TV.

well most power strip are useless call ins. compay and hope you got cost replacement

The set is trying to auto program the available channels and it can't find any because since the change from analog to digital [FEB 2009] broadcasting requires a "converter box" to translate the digital signal back to analog. Check around and see if you can find a converter box. They were available for $20 with a coupon, maybe they still are. Try an electronics shop or dealer for that info.

There are several different options to solve your problem. You should be able to program your cable box remote to replace many (but probably not all) of the functions of the Toshiba TV remote that you're missing. Read the user manual that came with your cable box remote to find out how to program it to control different types of components. It's not very difficult and that would be your least expensive option. Another suggestion is to buy a "universal replacement remote" that are sold in many electronics stores. Once you program those universal remotes, they will perform most/many of the functions of the original (Toshiba) manufacturer's remote. A "universal replacement remote" can cost anywhere from $20 to well over $100 depending on how many electronic components you want to control. My best suggestion would be to buy a replacement remote that was specifically made for your Toshiba model 27DF46 TV. There are many companies on the Internet which sell those remotes specifically made for your TV. The cost is usually between $25 - $35. One last inexpensive option would be if you already have any other Toshiba components (like a Toshiba DVD player), in many cases, the remotes are nearly identical and will provide most or all of the same functions. I would start by trying whichever option makes the most sense for your particular situation. Good luck.

The problem is caused by a faulty digital tuner board. The please wait is caused by the TV going in channel auto search indefinitively, this is caused by a faulty SD tuner board.
Replacing the part will usually fix the problem. If digital tuner is OK, go for the EEPROM located on main digital board: Memory Data AT24.
If the EEPROM is defective, then it will loose programming and it will ask the digital board for re-tuning. A problem with this part may have the same effect.
To do thing properly, before replacing any board, parts such as PSU, soldering joints etc. must be tested, the job should be done by a technician.

Here the part:Digital Tuner ENG36A49KF
If you think that the comment had been helpful, then please do not forget to accept the solution.

Well, I solved the problem.  First of all, I should have left it on "ant" and left the Television to figure out whether there was a DVD in it or not.  Then, I had the wrong channel which was just plain stupid.  But the weirdest thing is that my remotes are not working and they were fine.  I changed the batteries and no luck, so I will have to see what is what with that.  Fortunately, even though they won't turn things on, they will work the volume.  I have a feeling our new wireless system is having some kind of effect on them.  Great.

Hello Hloggins, hi, your power supply is not producing the pulse needed to start the switching. check for the IC on the oscillator part of the power supply, you need an Oscilloscope to test this. if there is no scope. i suggest you replace the IC.
