Power no picture or sound

Buzzing tv after power surge

Get the estimate. When your insurance company sees it, believe me, they won't buck at replacing your TV _especially since the prices of TV's have come down over the years while the quality and resolution has skyrocketed. . .

I have a Toshiba 47hl167 and when I plug it in and hit the power button the green light comes on but no picture?

The real issue is do you have sound or not?

You can unplug the set and or a box both if connected for several minutes and then power back to see if when they reboot set works or not.

Can a tv working normally after been stuck by lighting

In most cases no, depends on level of surge. I've seen cases where a surge came in through an HDMI cable and take out the HDMI port on a TV, everything else worked. I've seen cases where a surge damaged multiple boards on a set. So again it depends how how big of a surge, and whether the surge comes in through the power cable or an video/audio input.

My 42'' regza..won't come on. there is power but no picture. the green light will not stay on green. what might be the problem?

Sounds very much like a screen fault to me - the set powers up and senses the fault so shuts down again- seen this fault a fair bit I'm afraid.

Just had a power outage and now my TV will not come back on. Just flashes 3 consecutive flashes then a pause and then 3 more flashes. Tried unplugging and letting it sit, tried power button on remote and...

I hate to tell you that this happened to me last week and mine is 18 months old. after calling toshiba and going through all troubleshooting, nothing worked. they referred me to a service center near me and the repair is $466!!!!! I have lots of power outages so they can seriously damage a tv (the motherboard to be specific). Mine is the 42 inch 535U. get a surge protector for your cable and ask your electric company to install a power shield on the meter or a surge arrester.. good luck.

Audio and video quit working

are you sure that the power is on? and the cable is plugged? There are some TVs that do actually work MANUALLY, meaning, even the light is on, (notifying you that it's on) you still have to use the remote to turn it on. Hope this helps!

Toshiba regza 46rv530u will not turn on

Check the ac fuse. In a couple of cases because of a power surge the fuse opens up.
After replacing, the sets have worked normally.
