    I have had the same problem for a while now. Purchased in May 2008. Always worked after a couple of times until today. Now picture will not come on at all. Checked warranty and its warranted for a year. Guess a call to Geek Squad is in order.

    I have the exact same problem. I also purchase my 32AV500U in May 2008 and here it is 18 December 2008, no picture! Is this some kind of manufacturer conspiracy...?

    I've got the same problem. It tries to bring up a picture, I hear static, and then nothing (audio is fine though)

    Same problem - Had warranty repair done, they replaced the power supply, worked fine for 1 week then it happened again. Toshiba is worthless

    Same problem with two of the 32AV500U (mine and my parents). Have to turn it off and on numerous times to get the picture to come on. Been dealing with warranty over the phone, no help....



    I much prefer my 50" Panisonic plasma.

    When I Turn on my toshiba 32AV500U there is sound but no picture. I need to turn the TV off and on several times before a picture comes up.



    Also the on/off button on the remote works intermittently, even though the batteries are fresh, the rest of the remote works fine.

    HAVE SOUND BUT NO PICTURE, UNIT IS 7 MONTHS OLD

  • Anonymous Apr 23, 2009

    My unit is under Warranty and the repair has been authorized by Toshiba to a local authorized Toshiba repair shop. The repair shop has identified the problem as the "backlight inverter" (?), which part is out of stock and on back order for at least a month! From reading about this problem in this unit on the internet, this problem occurs frequently -- so it's no surprise that the replacement part is out of stock. Toshiba can't keep up with the demand for the part !!!!!!!

    I bought 8/2008 and now I have the same problem. It used to be successful in 2nd time, but now I have to try 3 or 4 times.

    I have the same unit and problem. A few months ago, I noticed that when I turned the t.v. on, the picture would not come in but the sound did. So, I would turn off and immediately turn it back on and it was fine. I thought, maybe it's an HD thing. My t.v. was not even a year old before the screen just blacked out (although the sound worked and I changed the channels and could hear them changing but couldn't see a thing...as if the t.v. was completely off). I called for a service center to come look at it and they told me they had to take it and order a part. The t.v. had been waiting for a part for 4 weeks and it just arrived yesterday...although they've had my television since April 11th. NOW, they are telling me today that I now need a panel ALSO, which has to be ordered and can take an ADDITIONAL TWO WEEKS to be delivered. If I had another T.V. this would not tick me off so much but I don't! (Please deter from judging:-)

    In any case, waiting this long for them to fix a problem they are well exists is just UNACCEPTABLE!!!!

    The green light is on. The volume is on. The screen is black. Toshiba 37AV50U. Purchased 7-22-08. Frustrating. I tried turning it on and off as suggested, but no picture still.

The problem isn't with the lcd panel, its with toshiba not willing to sell the backlight master or slave inverters seperately from the panel. If you check either the master or slave will have a blown 5 amp fuse, ussually 2 or more transistors inline with the transformer will be shorted.

I have had this model for just over 2 years. Like everyone else I had no picture but sound. At first restarting fixed but then I had to restart 5-6 times. Took it to a Toshiba service center and they replaced the inverter board (?) After I had it home the same thing started again and sometimes I have to restart 6-7 times so I imagine it is only a matter of time until I have to replace it again.

I have pioneer plasma tv about 6 years old. I turned the power on, sound but no picture. Do you think it is worth fixing?


no
plasma tv units consume considerable power and the latest led units don't so for the extra cost of a new unit , there will be a power saving over the years

I have sound but no picture on my tv


This is a popular question. Most of the time you either need to make sure all connections are not loose or just need to turn off your tv and receiver and unplug. Wait for 1 minute then reboot.
I recommend this short video as it walks you through some diagnostics for other possible problems.
