I obtained this Toshiba tv/dvd/vcr unit a few months ago. It had been dropped and no longer worked. Model MW26G71. The main pcb was damaged, the high voltage transformer was completely broken away from the circuit board. I repaired the board to somewhat functional status but had a distorted picture. The picture looks like the degaussing circuit is energized all the time. I can e-mail a picture of it for examination. So I figured that the board had fyther problems.. Replaced main board and still had the wierd picture, replaced the power supply, no help. Replaced the video chip on the VCR board, no help. The next part is 200.00. Would like some opinions on this problem, hate to trash a good tv.

Re: Very wierd Toshiba video problem
Hello techman2429m, It looks like you may have a color convergence problem. when you dropped the TV the convergence/purity rings on the neck of the tube may have shifted or by changing parts you may have thrown off the convergence. I would suggest using a pattern generator and adjusting convergence also adjusting the purity settings. This I believe will clear up your problems.

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
units like DVD's, have the tendency of malfunctioning if not used for quite sometimes.corrrect me if i'm wrong.but like automobiles needs tune-up, right?try power it on for some time, but not using it.if still not call a tech
The proper hookup is antenna or cable into the VCR RF/antenna input, then VCR RF/antenna output to the TV RF input. The hookup you describe means no signal is getting to the VCR.
With some TVs, there can be Video and audio output jacks which can be hooked to the video and audio jacks of the VCR. However this would likely mean you could only record the channel being watched, and, the TV would have to be on.
You trying to put the DVD/VCR combo between the cable box and the TV? OK, cable out goes to vcr in, vcr out goes to tv, I think you got that. Now there should be a tv/vcr button on the vcr/dvd, you need to press that when the unit is on. Also, make sure you are on the correct input on both the vcr and the tv, usually video 1 or AUX and choose line in or L1 on the vcr/dvd. If the tv/vcr button is toggled, itll completely bypass the vcr/dvd player.
