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

Re: The sound and Picture went out but power still turns...

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.

Picture is black. sound went out a few weeks ago and now all that seems to work is the red power lamp turns on and I hear a click but that's all. I am not concerned about the picture since it is c

The click is a power relay on the main board and if the red light is on I would suggest looking inside to see if it has more than one relay--follow the power cord into the set----some of these sets have one relay but others have up to 3.

They are know for sticking open or shut. A tap on them can free them..A look inside even by a novice may also reveal something burnt or unplugged etc.

Tv went off and won't come back on.

the arcing sound is some kind of high voltage leak, which will shut down the tv. pull the speaker grill off and the access board, look at the 3 picture tubes, turn the set on you will see where the leak is, it's usually the high voltage splitter, which has a high voltage wire going into it and 3 high voltage wires coming out going to the picture tubes, if it arcs from the splitter you need to change it, if it arcs from one of the picture tube wires you need to pull the tube out and fix the high voltage leak, and possibly a cooling fluid leak caused it, not an easy reapir, you probably need a repairman.

No Picture No Sound

First look for Bad Capacitors on [power supply board,if anyone of them is puffed up on top they are bad,Then if you do not have any bad caps How old is the Lamp in Set? if TV recycles 3 times for turn on and you have 2 greenlights on front and one red light---- lamp needs to be replaced.

I went turn on my tv the picture came on then off

Picture turned Yellow because the Blue CRT stopped working. Power turns off because the power supply is indicating a fault. you probably lost your HT (high tension [voltage]) power supply on the blue CRT (picture tube). Professional assistance is recommended. HT power supply CAN DELIVER A LETHAL SHOCK even when the set is unplugged.

Will not power on

The power supply has detected a problem, most likely a blown fuse caused by a bad convergence IC. If this is the problem the parts cost is around $50, but printed circuit board work is required to fix it.
