Re: powering on and off instantly

You either have a short in the unit somewhere, shorted high voltage section or a bad power supply. The most likely culprit is the high voltage section. If you are familiar with television repair, safety and good with a DMM and soldering iron you should be able to fix it. Check the horizontal output transistor (large transistor on the heat sink around or near the flyback. flyback is generally on the right side of the board and has a large red wire coming out of the top and going to the HV divider block.) If the transistor checks shorted, replace the transistor and flyback. Check all associated resistors and semis for any problems and replace anything out of spec. This should solve your problem. I have seen units with a bad HV block too so you may have to replace it also. If the HOT checks OK or replacing the HOT, flyback and HV block doesn't fix your unit you may or may not have the skills to troubleshoot the power supply and/or look for shorts in the unit. Certainly any charred components would be suspect. If you are not qualified to look any further you will have to have a qualified repair tech look at your unit. Good luck and be safe.

The power supply board is dead, u know basic electronics' and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like, to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

I hope this will help in solving the problem....

Hi There!

I am not familiar with this model,however if there are no screws or clips on the inside or side panels, the front would be the place to start. usually right at the bottom front are screws to remove the bottom front panel first. Then the rest will be exposed. Work your way from the bottom up. The screen itself will be last and normally hooks over the top frame. Good Luck, JUS004

IT sounds like you lost your high voltage going to the picture tubes. This could be due either to part of the main power supply going out due to a defective capicator or semiconductor, or something more serious in the High voltage distribution network. With the age of the set, I would be most inclined to replace it with a new HDTV, and Toshiba still are pretty reliable sets. If you can afford it, a Sony KDS-55A20 puts out a beautiful picture for around $2300.
