3 Answers

Second toshiba tv and they both do the same thing

I can not get all my channels. Only 13 channels. I have cable and should get 70 channels. I do get them on my other tvs but can not get them on either of the Toshibas. After the 13th channel it begins scanning thru all the channels but with no picture only snow. when I mannually go to a higher channel, I get only snow and no picture. What could be the problem and how can I fix it? Please give me a solution to this problem. Thanks, skfm21

Hi, It is possible that your Toshiba is set to receive aerial TV programs and not Cable TV programs. You need to go to the set-up menu (via remote) and go to the air/cable selection. Choose cable and then auto search/scan. This is a generic procedure and should work with your particular brand/model but the terms/names may just be a bit different. You may also consult the users manual for the exact procedure. Hope this give you an idea. Good luck and kind regards.

My toshiba tv only goes up to channel 12, when it reaches channel 12 it starts back at channel 1.

You will need to re-scan the channels, i don 't know where it is on the menu of this set. If you are on cable, you need to make sure your tv is set to cable tuning, or you cannot get channels past channel 13. Same is true for antenna if you are on antenna make sure you are set for this.

We have cable, but only get 13 channels on this toshiba

Check in the menu options and switch one of the settings from TV to Cable. Sorry I can't remember exactly what it's called but if you find something with TV / Cable and switch it to Cable - you should be able to go over channel 13.

Can not get tv to reach channels from 2 to 70

Sounds like you need a set-top box from the cable company.  You hook that up to your TV, tune the TV to Channel 3 or 4, and use the set-top box to tune in all the channels.

I can't program channels above 13

Check your TV settings and be sure to set the tuning mode to cable (sometimes it says CATV). You will find it's set to "air" now. When set for off-the-air tuning, cable channels 2 through 13 work fine, but above that you get nothing. After you set your tuning mode to cable, rescan channels and ou should have everything.

I am trying to get channels above 13. I do not

Try bringing up the menu by holding both volume buttons down at the same time (or use menu button on remote if you have it). Go into CH SET using the channel and volume buttons on the front of set (or use the SET + and - and the ENTER buttons on remote). Go to the TV CATV line and move the arrow to CATV. Let menu time out. This will put tv into cable mode. Hope this helps.

Audio problem with Toshiba 36A41 TV

Try connecting the cable directly to the tv rather than through the VCR.

Only goes to channel 13

It probably has to do with a setting in your menu. Usually it is the antenna category. Change it to Cable or CATV.
