Re: The lights on but no-one's home - no picture on TV

Sounds like you have a short somewhere, probably the Horizontal Output Transistor. If there is a fault the led you mentioned probably should be blinking. You probably are going to need a tech to look at this as it is a very complicated process of elimination.

My philips tv keeps losing the picture, still have the sound in the background but no pic, this has happened before and then went back to working fine, but yesterday turned on the tv, it worked for 5 secs...

Check if the tube lights up at the rear, the fillament must glow.If not check for badly soldered joints at the picture tube connection or the HT transformer.

Toshiba MD20FP3 Combo does not turn on. Help!

Not unless you have taken the time to learn all the safety issues concerning the HI voltage safety facts, in the repair of electronics? It sounds like your tv has a problem in the sweep/power supply circuits, and since these sets have NO user serviceable parts< its best too leave these types of repairs to a certified electronic technician. Good Luck

My TV screen has no picture

If the light goes out you definitely have a short somewhere. If it blinks you have a fault, probably in the High Voltage circuit. Most common problem is a shorted Horizontal Output Transistor. Unless you are an experienced technician you probably need to have a reputable repair facility look at this one. Most will give you an estimate for free or for a small fee which will be deducted if you decide to have them fix it.
