Question about Toshiba 36A40 36" TV

Open Question

How do I shut off tvgos

Someone sat on one of our two controllers. We have a DISH controller and a Toshiba CT-90235 TV Guide controller. This combination worked quite well for several years. Someone sat on or dropped one of controllers and TV screen prompted us to reset up TV. We didn't know how to answer some of the questions and now we have a screen that comes up whenever we turn on the TV that is basically a ********* box with 3 smaller screens on the left, one of them being the channel we want to watch. We have to hit "Exit" on the TV Guide controller for it to release us to the full screen of the program we want to watch. How do we turn off the TV guide feature so we can watch TV like we used to-- a channel and the full screen comes up?

I had the same problem with my remote...over time it slowly stopped working. (sorry for poor terminology) I noticed that one of the battery terminals was corroded and that the metal connecting the battery to the board was completely gone. I simply swapped this out with one from another remote and now its working fine. Seems the only issue is that the battery was not connected.

I hope this helps.

My Dish Network remote control has quit working. I have fresh batteries and when I push on the SAT and TV buttons, they do not light up. 5.0 IR. 118575.

Hi, my name is Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service. I came across your post recently and would like to help. If you have already replaced the batteries in your remote and still the SAT and TV buttons are not lighting up it sounds like you may need a new remote. You can try holding down either the SAT or the TV button for about 10 seconds to see if this will get either of them to light up. If that does not work you will need a new remote. You can either call into DISH Network at 1-800-333-3474 or you can email me with your account information (i.e. account number or phone number and name on the account) and I would be happy to get a remote sent out to you. You can also email me if you have any further questions or concerns and I'd be happy to assist you. Thanks! :)

You can enter the system info screen by either pressingthe system info button on the front of the DISH receiver box or by pressing thepower button once then the up arrow on the front of the receiver. If theseoptions are unsuccessful you can also open the smart card door on the front leftside of the receiver and pull out the smart card. 2. Onceyou are on the system info screen, hold down the SAT button until all modelights light up. 3. Entera number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote. 4.
