Question about Toshiba 32A43 32" TV

TV SHUTS DOWN AFTER PLAYING FOR VARIOUS LENGTHS OF TIME

The TV will play perfectly for extended periods, but then shut off with the "on" light blinking. I am on digital cable and had 3 diffrent boxes installed, but the problem continues. I can unplug the TV from the wall socket and after a few minutes or hours, re-plug and start the unit normally. The cycle has been ongoing for several months and the TV is only 2 years old. Store service folk indicate that this is not a good "in-home" repair item and want to carry to their shop to observe for a period of days and then install one or more "cards" to solve issue. Only problem with this is that with pickup and delivery, I am looking at $225.00 minimum, not including the cost of parts. This is scary, since I paid less than $400 for the unit in the first place.

    look at the circuit board closely for cracked solder joints. Resoldering any bad joints might just solve your problems,but remember a tv is not for regular people, there are very dangerous circuit on it.

Most Likely it is a bad STR (the Power Regulator IC) in the Power supply circuit.Get it replaced and it should sort out. Should not cost u more than 15-20$ for the STR + Technician fees.

My Mitsubishi Medallion tv stays on for about 10 minutes and then shuts down and won't turn back on until a period of time has passed. It is a rear projection tv about 9 years old. Can anyone help ex


When it shuts off and the green power light goes off, press both the menu and input buttons on the front of the set (not the remote) and hold both for about five seconds and release.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks and then 3 blinks and repeat it several times.

What is the error code?

does all functions play properly during this time?(before shut down), if that is so, it might be loose connections which you can verify by tapping on the unit at various places.

Colors wrong on DVD player


The problem is with the cabling, assuming you are using component cables please make sure that the cables are in the proper locations (red to red, green to green, blue to blue) and firmly seated. There are also issues with using cables of various lengths where the signals to not all arrive at the same time.

hay if you fell it getting hot fast it's the heat transfer compound in the system which is wearing away causing it to over heat and shut down as a safety precaution. so there for it will keep freezing of shouting down.

No. Today's plasmas are less susceptible to burn-in effect. However, plasmas run hotter than LCD TV. Without proper ventilation coupled with extended viewing hours (whether playing games or watching TV) it can hurt your TV. Enjoy playing!
