SOURCE: need to put tv on video 2 mode to use ps3 and no remote

Have you tried running through the channels until they wrap around and start over again? Alot of TV's will throw the AV inputs in there before the first broadcast channels.

If not (and you're gonna hate my answer, but be kind to the messenger please!), you may have to purchase a new remote control from the manufacturer, which can be exorbitantly priced. Most 'Universal' remotes will act just like your Dish Network remote, and you will probably not be able to use any of your set's advanced functions through them.

I would recommend searching the web for the appropriate replacement remote control, you may get lucky on eBay and save a few bucks. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: unlock Olevia remote control

Why are the menu settings that I changed not being saved? A. The TV is in Showroom mode. The following steps will help you switch to Home mode.

  1. Press Menu button from the remote,
  2. Press Down arrow key until you see the word Picture, then press the Right arrow key,
  3. Press Down arrow key until you see Mode, then press the Right arrow key,
  4. Press Down arrow key until you see Power Up, then press the Right arrow key,
  5. Press Down arrow key until you see Home, then press the Enter key,
  6. Press Menu button four times to exit out from the OSD Menu.
***Showroom mode is designed for retailers to display the TV and to protect from shoppers changing the settings that are predetermined for shelf display environment.***

SOURCE: Is There a way to go to video/input without a remote.

My answer will be generic.

With many of these TV sets the original factory remote is required to change the input mode of the set, or to access any of the user menus.

On some models of sets, putting the channel selection down to below channel 2, puts the TV in to the external input modes.

Toshiba backlight problems?


Without a remote control, you can't enter its service mode to unlock it. Try to get an original remote control. Contact the authorized service center.

Have no remote


In most cases, with a universal remote control, you can't select the TVs inputs. It will be best to buy an original remote control. Contact the authorized service centrer, or dealer. If you wish to get set-up codes list to some universal remote controls, check this link. http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up older posts there, either by its left side bar, or, view it in 'Timeslide' option. It has set-up code list and proceedings to most popular brand remote controls. If you wish to buy one universal remote control, check to which remote control have set-up codes to your Brand TV. Buy that brand remote control, according to availability. But, input section function is not guaranteed.

You should use the component video input (which ever the TV has), you will get better pictures than the S-video.
As far as the remote control for the DVD, keep using the one that comes with your DVD player, Comcast remote does not always work, beside you get full function using the DVD's remote, that is how I use my DVD, same for the TV, Comcast remote my not be able to send out the signals to the ATV for selecting the input sources on the TV. Comcast remote is not a full functions remote.

Have a toshiba 27df47 flat screen tv. how do you


Hi there,
First make sure the video inputs are not locked using these instructions:
To set up the video lock:
1. Press MENU, then press or to display the LOCKS menu.
2. Press  or to display the password entering mode.
3. Use the Channel Number buttons (0-9) to enter your password,
then press ENTER. The LOCKS menu appears.
4. Press  or to highlight VIDEO LOCK.
5. Press or to select:
• OFF: Unlocks all video input sources.

Then it appears that choosing Video 2 using the TV/VIDEO button should enable the front input.

An entire manual is avialable here that should closely match your tv:

Here is something that may help from the toshiba.com website under your model number television. Q. Why are people on my screen green?
Models: 32HL17, 37HL17, 42HL17, 42HL167, 47HL167, 52HL167, 42HL167, 42LX177, 46LX177, 52LX177, 57LX177

If the problem is not the connections, try adjusting the tint on your television. A high tint setting will usually create a green
image on the screen where as a low tint will create a more red hue. In order to access your television's tint:
1. Press the “MENU” button on your remote control and use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys and select the
VIDEO menu.
2. Then use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to highlight PICTURE SETTINGS and press the "ENTER" button on
your remote.
3. Next use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to highlight TINT then use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys to adjust the
TINT. If the picture is too green the tint will need to be lowered.
4. Once you have adjusted the tint to your liking, use the DOWN arrow key to highlight DONE and press ENTER. The toshiba customer service telephone number is : 1-800-631-3811. I hope this helps you with your problem.

No picture on my television


Found this on the www.toshiba.com website. Q. I have sound and no picture with the TV powered on?
Models: 26HL47, 32HL17, 37HL17, 42HL17, 32HL37, 26HL67, 32HL67, 37HL67, 42HL67, 42HL167, 47HL167,

Using the buttons on the TV itself (not the remote control), press the “MENU” button to see if the TV’s MENU appears on
the screen. If the MENU does appear on the screen, verify that all of your video connections are secure on the TV and on
the connected device. Double check that you are connected in the appropriate jacks, check the other inputs of the TV to
see if the video appears on any other input. If you still do not see any video but can access the menu, try to reset the TV
to the factory defaults.
1. To reset all settings to default values:
i. Press the “MENU” button on your remote to open the menu.
ii. From the SETUP menu, highlight INSTALLATION and press “ENTER”. A new set of Installation
menu icons will appear.
iii. Open the SYSTEM STATUS menu, highlight SYSTEM INFORMATION and press “ENTER”.
iv. Press the LEFT or RIGHT arrow to scroll through the menu bar to select FACTORY DEFAULTS.
v. Enter your PIN code (or 0000 if no PIN code has been set).
vi. Highlight YES and press “ENTER”. The TV will turn off automatically after a few seconds. After the
TV turns off, unplug the TV power cord and then plug it in again to complete the reset process.
vii. If the MENU does not appear on the screen, try resetting the TV by unplugging the power cord for at
least 3 minutes.
viii. If neither of the above steps resolved your problem, you can get assistance with this problem by
contacting our customer solutions department at 1-800-361-3811 Monday through Friday 8am -7pm
CST I hope this helps you with your problem.
