Toshiba p205-6337 won't turn on

Bought this computer in 8/07 and unfortunately no extended warranty. Although the blue light is on on the front when I plug in the power cord, the system will not turn all. Nothing. No lights, no sounds, nothing. I am not tech savy but I am also broke so if anyone has any ideas, I would be ever grateful. Thank you

Compaq presario v6120us - problem starting up. When I press ON button blue lights come on and flash off and nothing happens. Changed ac adapter for new one and taken battery out held down ON button...

There are two possibilities which are likely to be causing your problem. The first is that there is a fault with your ram and might need replacing. The ON light flashing is frequently cause by ram. If you have 2 ram stick try having them in seperately in the bottom ram slot. There are lots of videos available showing you how to do this. The second, and unfortunately with these laptops, more likely problem is that your motherboard has become corrupt due to the onboard graphics card overheating.
The warranty on some of these was extended because Compaq admitted it was a generic problem but they did not cover all of them and I think the extended warranty cover is not finished. The fault with the graphics card causes the latop to not boot. How long does the light stay on and if you leave the laptop does it turn itself off and try to start again? If it does this and eventually starts, with or wothout display, unfortunately it is your motherboard and it needs to be replaced.

Tv black out on me and it stop working. No red power light.

My friend bought a Poloroid tv, similiar to yours. The power supply went bad 2 weeks after warranty expired; he had to pay to have a whole new power supply installed - roughly $250. Two weeks later my Toshiba (same age) won't turn on - no lights or anything. Same thing - power supply. Sounds like yours is in the same category. Hopefully you bought the extended warranty.

P 2133: when turn it on nothing happens, only the blue light on the "on button" comes on. Nothing on the screen and the light for hard drive also does not come on. when turn off Screen blank, I have send...

every motherboard is defective in a computer. It's not good, and yes, it costs $150 + $5 S&H for a new motherboard when the warranty expired, but if it's under the warranty, the costs will be $0 + $5 S&H.

I would recommend buying an extended warranty (3 yrs.) to extend your computer's warranty so that you won't pay $100s, or $1,000s.

Toshiba TV humming

It's really your call on the extended warranty - obviously I don't opt for one on any of my home electronics but I have taken out a policy or two on appliances. (I don't repair them)...
Like most averages something may never happen to the unit. That's how the warranty company makes their profit. But if something does then you have that piece of mind knowing that you're covered... (As a footnote I should add ONLY if you purchase a plan with a reputable warranty provider. There are MANY providers that I would NEVER do business with regarding extended warranties.)
I have been in MANY homes where the people were simply ecstatic that they had opted for the extended warranty. And on a four year old Tv the repair came to more than the Tv was worth..
That Toshiba you have there turn it on and listen to the hum. Turn the unit off and pay close attention to what the hum does. If the sound stop readily it's probably the color wheel. If it's still there for several seconds it's probably the fan. The fans are designed to remain running for several seconds after the power is turned off to help with cooling..
You might find a reputable shop locally and ask about the option of having the color wheel rebuilt. Tri-State module rebuilds some color wheel assemblies, and if they can do that it will be at a fraction of the cost of a new one...
Good Luck!

Lost Recovery CD's

You can request the cd's from Toshiba, although they will charge, the pics etc will be lost unless they can be retrieved by the warranty company, although they will also charge for that.

My set switches from low lamp to bright lamp on its own constantly

I just got mine back from the shop withe a similar issue. The picture would dim especially with dark scenes and you could actually hear the lamp popping and clicking. It was not consistent enough that I had to video tape the issue for the technicians. In short, they decided that the ballast was faulty, unfortunately, the only way to replace the ballast is to replace the entire light engine. The part is about $320 and they also replaced the lamp for $150. The extended warranty would have only covered parts I believe so you may have ended up OK.
