Hello, Please elaborate - what Input are you trying to get the set over to? What's connected there- is it a Cable Box, etc.?

Are you attempting to use the original TV remote or a cable remote, etc.?

Does MENU, and volume function as they should?

Please reply back with those details as it allows me to determine what the root cause of the problem is.

In other words, you're trying to get OUT OF Video 2, and over to "what"?

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 year ago

Okay, well you can't change to an Input unless there's something connected to it, and also you have to have Labeled the Input. So what I'm asking is if you have tried getting it onto one of these other Inputs before. If you have NEVER selected them before, then you need to do some other steps. Let me know.

Ok, I want to connect the tv to a cable box
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 year ago

So have you selected these other Inputs before with no problem, or is this the first time trying to?

First time trying to change the inputs
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 year ago

Okay there's no one single way to connect a Cable Box, it could be via HDMI, via Component Video connections, etc. That being said, what cables do you have connected from the Cable Box to the TV? This tells us what Input you're going to need to change it to.

Or, if you want to get me the Make and Model off the front of the Cable Box then I can help you connect it (In other words VIP2200, or Explorer 4340HD, etc.).

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 year ago

On the back of the Genie you're going to connect a set of "Red,Blue,Green.Red and White" component video cables to the same colored jacks.

Then plug the other end of those cables into the same colored jacks on the TV labeled "Colorstream HD 1".

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 year ago

Once that's complete, then use the INPUT button on the left side of the TV and press it repeatedly to select "HD 1" in order to view the Genie on the TV.

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 year ago

If you're still unable to change the TV's Input over to HD 1 - even using the Input button on the side of the TV (which supersedes the remotes) then it's likely that the Inputs are "Locked" on the set, and you would need to know the PIN CODE on the TV, and then to follow the instructions on page 47 of the manual at the link below to unlock the HD 1 Input:

I have the code, but how do I put in with no remote to chane
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 year ago

Ah, so you don't have the original Toshiba remote, well that isn't going to work then and you're going to have to get the OEM remote in order to unlock the Inputs and use the TV. Or, the workaround would be to use Red,White and Yellow RCA cables from the Genie to the TV instead - and plug them into the VIDEO 2 jacks on the set - since the set is stuck on VIDEO 2.

So you're limited to using the VIDEO 2 jacks (red,white and yellow), or purchasing the OEM remote so you can unlock the set and then use the other Inputs. The OEM remote is at the link below for your set for $10:

What is OEM remote
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 year ago

Original Equipment.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Is that the only way to use a remote? What about a universal remote or direct tv?
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 year ago

No there is not. The set's native remote is designed to exclusively access the set's inner MENU's. In other words, you need the remote that came with the TV. Or, you need to use the VIDEO 2 jacks to connect the DirecTv box to using Red,White and Yellow RCA cables. Those are the only two options and we can't change those factors I'm afraid.

I did change with those jacks. Now I need to put in code for the inteenwt to hook up wifi
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 1 year ago

The TV doesn't have Wi Fi, so you don't need any TV codes, the rest is going to be done with your DirecTv remote.
