List of Toshiba TV Service Menu Options

The tables below give a full list of Toshiba TV service menu adjustments and their purpose. Access to TV service mode is done at your own risk and any menu option adjustment should only be carried out by trained TV engineers. TV servicing should not be attempted by untrained members of the public and we will not be held responsible for damage to your television resulting from service menu adjustments or lack of knowledge. In addition, a TV contains potentially lethal voltages and the rear cover should not be removed by untrained persons.

Toshiba TV Geometry & Colour Adjustment

The adjustment options listed were present on a Toshiba 36ZP38 TV and the factory settings listed were those found on my particular UK manufactured Toshiba television.

Each picture mode allows a certain amount of individual optimisation - although some service menu options are common to all picture modes such as colour drive and cut-off. Thus it is possible to individually adjust the various Toshiba picture modes such as Subtitle, Cinema and Super Live for the best picture geometry.

Service mode settings will be unique on each Toshiba TV, so under no circumstances should you adjust your TV to my factory settings or my new settings. These are given for guidance only.
