Your Toshiba TV should now display all menus and on-screen text in the newly selected language.

Changing the Language (When Current Language is Unreadable)

If the current language on your Toshiba TV is unreadable, you can still change it back to English or your preferred language by following these steps:

  1. Press the “Menu” button on your TV remote control.
  2. Press the right arrow button twice to navigate to the “Settings” menu. [1][2]

If this method doesn’t work, you can try resetting your Toshiba TV to factory settings, which should revert the language back to English or the default language for your region. Consult your TV’s user manual or contact Toshiba customer support for specific instructions on how to perform a factory reset.
