Hi Len and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the Toshiba. It would normally be stenciled/printed on a name plate at the back and may be something like 42WLT66A.

hi just try 0000 still no luck

Appreciate the update.

Consider a RESET. A reset is both a test and a try of a fix. As it implies, a reset would force the unit to revert back to factory defaults removing glitches and config errors but would include memories, presets and user preferences. After a reset, the initial setup would have to be performed. If have not been done and should you venture to try: Please click HERE.

May have to be done a number of times.

This is very critical - a reset however would not be corrective of an internal hardware or software/firmware concern; but it would be confirmed. In some instances, it may even expose/cause other issues.
