How to Repair a Toshiba TV

Updated February 21, 2017

Your Toshiba TV produces high-quality audio and video so you can enjoy your favourite sporting events, movies, comedies and gaming. However, like every television, there are times when you need to fix some quirks that might appear. As you learn how to repair a Toshiba TV, you can take care of minor problems on your own instead of calling in a pricey service person to fix it for you.

Determine the problem's source. Change the channel on your television to make sure the problem isn't only with that channel. If the problem persists on all TV channels and on all sources, like a DVD player, you know there's something wrong with your Toshiba TV.

Press "menu" on your Toshiba remote control.

Use the "up" and "down" arrow buttons to highlight "picture." Press "enter."

Adjust the brightness, contrast, colour, tint, backlight, contrast and sharpness of the picture by using the "right" and "left" arrow buttons on your remote. Exit the menu and see if the problem is fixed.

Press "volume" on your Toshiba remote control to make sure the television isn't on mute. Turning the volume up takes the television automatically off of mute and sound will resume, if that's the issue.

Access the main menu by pressing "menu" on your Toshiba remote control.

Use the "up" and "down" arrow buttons to highlight "sound." Press "enter."

Highlight "MTS." Press "enter." Arrow right or left to select "stereo." Press "exit."

Press the power button on your Toshiba TV control panel.

Wait while the TV reboots.

See if the problem is fixed.
