Question about Toshiba 42HDX82 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Picture suddenly totally Gone!

We were watching CSI (right at the key part), and suddenly the picture was gone. Audio is fine. 10 minutes earlier, the picture had gone snowy for a few moments; thought Cable Company was having trouble with that channel only because we dropped down a channel and it was OK, then back to CSI and the picture was fine. But now didn't matter which channel - no picture. We tried a DVD (different input channel, different cables) and same problem, no picture whatsoever, audio OK. The red power light stays lit steady. Did a full power down, including unplugging from the wall and let it sit 30 seconds with no cables plugged in. Still stuck. Pretty big to fit in the car to haul off for repair...

Works fine, clear picture. Picture fades, then gone. Turn it off, wait a few minutes, turn it back on and presto, fine again. What's wrong?

The picture has disappeared but the sound is working

Check the lamp first, especially if its the original. Also, observe the red LED on the front panel. It will often blink a code which can identify the problem.

Picture is concave on top and bottom. With ed and green ghosts.Worked fine, turn set off and on about 15 minutes later and picture was as described. Help!

The convergence chips in your tv have gone out. They control the three picture tubes and align them so that they create one picture on your screen. I recomend having a qualified technican replace them and realign you convergence. Thanks.

Mitsubishi WT 46805 ~ Picture gone..... :0(

Good Day, Corri;

It sounds like the TV has a Circuit problem in the convergence circuit. If it comes and goes then the concern can be corrected by re-soldering the 'conv' output IC"s. A semi-minor repair and cost.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
