Question about Toshiba 42H81 42" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

The sound and Picture went out but power still turns on.

My sound and picture went out in the middle of a movie but the power did not shut off. I tried all the power connections but nothing works. The screen is black. My husband might be able to fix it if we can get some idea of where to start. The TV is 4 years old. Thank you for any help. Jennifer

If the light is flashing on the front of the set after you turn on the power, its most likly a sweep power supply problem. if the set is dead then its in the standby or main power supply. If your hubby is a tech then he should have No problem fixing this puppy. if he is not, a TV set is not a place to be experimenting around inside of, as this is a solid state set, and has no user replaceable parts inside. Its dangerous to work on and unless you wantt to possibly become a widow?? Please seek out a pro to assist you in this repair.
