    I am trying to select the input on the Toshiba-39​l22u, but they are a gray shadow. I only have the TV antenna option to select. How can I make active the others?

    B​y the way, when trying to reset the TV to factory settings, it asks me to enter the 4-digit pin, I enter the 0000 and shows invalid password message. I do not know what pin to enter to reset the TV. I will appreciate the procedure to unlock the TV and reset it.

    Good day.
