Toshiba 32" 2-Tuner PIP TV - Loud pop - then static

I saw a similar posting, in this forum, but my TV is different and I'm not sure it is the same thing. When I turn my television AND digital cable on, after several minutes there will be a loud static POP, and then the picture goes all snowy and warbly. When the problem originally started, this would only happen once, and the picture was not affected. Now though, it will be indiscernable video for a few minutes (it is getting worse). The other night, I turned on the television and switched to the Video 2 input to play a movie. This problem did not occur. I also tried the Video 1 input and played a game on my GameCube for a while, no POP or video distortion. So I'm trying to figure out if this is my TV, or if somehow it's the cable service? Or the literal cable from the wall? Or a power surge? I have no idea. Help, please! I love my TV and I don't want it to die! =)

Re: Toshiba 32" 2-Tuner PIP TV - Loud pop - then static

HI greetings from Belize.from the explanation i believe that there is two thing you might be having a problem in your tunner section whereby the tunner is going bad or the tunner circuit . or the cable from your wall is not connected corectly might lose.the video 1 and two is not associated with the tunner some how thats is the reason you did not get any disturbance.if your cable connection is good.then have your set checked out by a tech.good luck.

I have a problem that appears to be related only to my coaxial cable input. I periodically get static, white lines across the screen or a "no signal" error message. Pixilation does not occur. Initially it...


I think your problem is in the tuner, a metal box located near the antenna input. This tuner can be removed and serviced. Sometimes the tuner DC supply line is unstable due to a filter capacitor or zener diode generally rated 33V (most common) and should be the first step in troubleshooting process.

The problem may be in the tuner or associated circuit. Firt check the DC supply line to the tuner. This circuit has a limiting resistor (15K 3W) and a 33V zener diode. If these are OK the tuner is faulty and should be removed (sometimes it comes on a separated board attached to the main board) and serviced.

I have a Toshiba CF27H50 that just stated losing the picture after about an hour of viewing. After an hour, it starts to flicker and then the picture just is lost and it just goes to black/snow screen and...

This is a common symptom of tuner trouble. A common problem is bad solder connections inside. As the set warms up, small cracks on joints from the tuner circuit board to its metal case can cause the trouble you describe. If you tap on the TV or wiggle the connector where the antenna or cable line goes, the picture will sometimes pop back in if this is the case. It's also possible the tuner has parts that quit working as they warm up. The only way to know for sure is to remove the tuner, check over the connections, repair any that are iffy, and see if the trouble continues. This is not a repair for a do-it-yourselfer, though, because of the soldering involved.

If the trouble isn't bad connections in the tuner, there's not much you can do. I've checked the parts sources I use. The original Toshiba part is no longer available and I haven't found any replacement. If you're using a cable box or other video source, you can keep using the TV just for its AV inputs and not worry about the tuner any more. Otherwise, given repair labor cost and lack of parts, it's probably more economical to replace this TV instead of trying to repair it.

Static on all cable channels

The tuner is questionable The problem lies inside the isolation box. Ask a repairman to open this isolation box and resolder the small board. There are two small resistors that need resoldered. This also has the rf connector on it. And you may have him resolder the tuner if this does not fix it. Have him inspect any and all grounds on the main board as well. Good Luck

Bad connections in tuner. If your really careful, lots of very small parts, you can resolder the cracked solder ground connections to the metal box and metal shields.

The PIP puts a smaller picture on your main picture. Usually, the smaller picture is generated by a second source, such as a VCR. The VCR must be connected to the main cable signal and connected to the TV through the red, white, yellow RCA jacks. The VCR picks the smaller picture whilt the tuner in the TV picks the main pucture. The PIP circuits digitally add the smaller picture to the larger picture. The PIP cannot be used to veiw 2 different channels at once on satellite systems because the satellite receiver sends only one channel to the set at a time.
