    Can not access freeview on toshiba 28 inch tv with ct8002 remote control

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi

    I think the tv is toshiba 28inch possibly aToshiba 28YT56B .
    i am trying to help an old couple restore access to freeview.
    When I access the menu it only accessing uhf tuning.
    I chacked last friday and freeview access was fine.
    She phoned me up to say lost tv signal.
    There was an odd menu wen i switched on and it was trying to tune PR or something.
    I exited this and wen i went to main menu no access to freeview was available,
    Its possible shes pressed something but i tried everything and no access to freeview.
    Can any one advise. Do I need to access service menu ?
    Is there a factory default setting or reset

    Ian

    The DTV menu is unavailable if the TV is in Analogue mode...you need to change it using the input button (5th one down on RHS) on the remote.

    Brilliant. I walked in and one click everything was sorted.
    You made 2 old people very happy.
    Thanks for your trouble.

    Was directed to this thread during some interweb searching having the same trouble. I'm trying to wire up a PS3 on a friend's telly and I can't for the life of me get it to work.

    JayCee, you mention that the DVD button is inactive when not on DTV but I'm finding that no matter what settings I give it, whenever I change the switch on the side of the remote to DVD, the remote buttons all lock up except for the volume and standby button.

    The PS3 lead is into the back of one of those SCART adapters which is then inserted into the top SCART socket on the back of the telly. This set up has worked fine for years on my 32" Hitachi CRT in my bedroom (no HDMI connections on an antique tellys like these!).

    Any ideas where I'm going wrong? I notice in the 'feature' menu for 'common interface slots' that it says 'NO MODULE' - I don't know if that has any bearing on anything? I should also add for clarification that I've got a blank screen on all 6 of the 'EXT' channels.

    Thanks for any help you can offer. :smashin:

    PS. the remote is the same as discussed in this thread (CT-8002) and it is of course a Toshiba telly (28") ;)

    Your problem has nothing to do with the common interface slot, DTV or DVD.
    Are you sure the scart adaptor is an input?...these are available as inputs, outputs and the best type have an in/out switch.
    It should just be a case of plugging one into the AV1 (sometimes marked EXT1) and selecting that input on the TVs remote.
