Where is the menu button on my Toshiba CT 8533 remote
where is the menu button on my Toshiba CT 8533 remote, i am trying to connect my wireless router ??
An old but still very relevant thread…
The settings (setup) menu is a sub-menu of the home button (main menu/house/blue). after pressing the home the up and down arrows scroll through this three option sub- menu. Not intuitively obvious took me longer than i care to admit to find this :<
Eventually found this using the helpful reply generated by Marilyn Koletzke initially which refers to pressing the HOME button first and this surprisingly has a somewhat hidden settings (setup) menu in the form of a sub-menu of the home button which having pressed the HOME button you can access and do retuning or even first time installation which used to be obtained on the earlier remote layout and was called MENU - Having pressed the HOME button the up and down arrows scroll through this three option sub- menu. Not good TOSHIBA as this is definitely not in any way obvious and more importantly SIMPLE - A good solution would be to bring back the MENU button or is this too much to ask for ?
Try pressing the HOME BUTTON (blue colour?) and immediately after that press the ARROW UP button of the 4 way toggle area in the middIe of remote. You might need to try that a few times but it should bring up a settings menu. I found with this that the easiest way to set up the Internet is to go thru the initial setup steps because to use this menu and get all the features at some point you'll need to go back a step which will open up more settings in the settings menu, at least that's how it was for me which is completely counter intuitive. I just got this TV and I'm not at home at the moment to check that everything I just said is correct but I think it is. The main thing is to get the settings menu open with the combined pressing of those 2 buttons. Good luck
I have been able to do this on all my toshiba tv's except for one. One of my toshoba tv's when I press home button and then the up and down arrows it does nothing and then the menu appears covering the whole screen in boxes one large blank black box and underneath a notice saying you need to connect to the Internet. Top right is a box with netflix BBC iplayer etc in it and the box under that has Facebook, you tube etc. Control will only move between the two boxes on the right but you cN not get on anything as tv is not connected to Internet. Grrrrrrrrrr been trying for hours daily. Anybody able to help
