Toshiba Cinema Series TV won't turn on

When I attempt to turn on my Toshiba Cinema Series HDTV, the picture does not come on. At times the sound will be there, but no picture. A small red light near the power button on the front of the st flashes. Each time I have to turn off the power to the entire system, essentially re-booting. Then the TV comes on after pressing the start button on the remote. This happens 100% of the time when I attempt to turn on the set for the day or evening. TV repair guy blames the system guy, and system guy blames the TV guy. Any help would be appreciated.

    When I turn the tv on with the remote or on the tv, nothing happens. A red light near the power button on the tv flashes continually. I have unplugged the tv and tried again. Same results.

    When you press the power button, the power light comes on for about 15 seconds and then turns itself off before any picture shows up.

We finally had a repair man out and he replaced 2 convergence IC. They were $80 each so get out the check book! Works fine now!

Same problem here. Will make a click like it turns on but will just flash. Had this tv for about 10 years. im starting to suspect a timer to disable the tv so you have to fix it over time.

My Toshiba cinema series HD separates the red & blue color.


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.pnghttp://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull

Our tv is 10 years old toshiba cinema series it has blue and red


It will be 11 years next month that I've had my Toshiba 55H55 Cinema Series and have the same problem every now and then, if you haven't already done so, go to the picture settings and scrolling down to conversion and it will take you through 3 steps of adjustments,there is a white cross in the middle of the screen line up the red first and then the blue, it will then take you to a screen with numbers, ID the clearest number and exit out, you should have a clear picture again. I hope this helps.

You will need to trouble shoot the start up and shutdown circuits. Often this is a minor component failing causing the set to not power up or go into protective shutdown. Do you have the service manual for this TV?
