Toshiba TV's

I have 2 Toshiba's in my MH. When watching TV in antenna mode we get a great picture. However, as soon as we turn on the microwave, we lose our picture. Screen shows low signal strength. Guess the mic. Creates some kind of interference. Any solutions?

Is the antenna booster on or off?

Just don't use the microwave. No just kidding, check for a filter to add to your plug. Maybe radio shack or call Crutchfield they may be able to help. You are picking up noise from it.

Might look similar to this.

The black button is the on and off button.

I also have two Toshiba TVs. I'm sitting here watching HD channels and just ran the Micro and have zero issues. Your Micro should never interfere with a TV signal. Check for leaks: 4 Ways to Check a Microwave for Leaks - wikiHow

What does the booster have to do with the problem he is having? He has a great picture so it doesn't matter if the booster is on or off. If the Micro is interfering with the TV signal, there is a bigger problem.

My tv works sometimes GREAT with booster off until a microwave or a/c turns on.
Thats what that has to do with it.

I had the same problem with the cheap Toshiba 40".
It also lost signal when I was on local antenna with boost on etc.
The microwave is one problem and the TV has minimal shielding and yes we glow in the dark when we use the microwave at night. lol

I now have a Samsung TV and I have no issues when using the microwave.

Hello IGGY, Long time no see. You guys must be quite the sight when you are in glow in the dark mode. Don't go anywhere near Rozwell N.M. (or is it Roswell). Wherever that U.F.O. sighting place is. Spelling not my strongpoint.
