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.

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.

Anyone could help in regards to tv picture quality please. I just bought a nice LG HD TV. The picture quality is very nice and sharp, but the movies (dvd or movies on tv) doesn't look...

I don't think it is with the tv. You got a high end tv there and it is ready to get hd pictures from any other source. Although your tv is ready for HD, it doesn't necessarily means that that you will get all pictures in HD. It will still depend on devices broadcasting to your TV. If the signal is not HD, definitely the final picture on your TV will not be in HD quality.

Have an old sony HDTV proj tv, and the picture went out last night. I heard sort of a "pop" then no picture

Pop sound shows that some thing went wrong inside TV and most probably any part got busted.
Let me know model number of your Sony TV and does its standby red light blinking? if yes, how many times it blinks between 3 seconds interval.

Screen display mode

Because the broadcaster is giving you the bars at top and bottom there is nothing you can do except use the different aspect or screen formats that are on your TV. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks....

No picture, no sound

we need a request on what the blinking red light means on your model number and manufacturer of TV, we can then try to see what the blinking light means,(although it doesn't sound good) You ca always unplug the DVR and see if there is a change, then you would know it was the DVR
Thanks for the rating

Toshiba tv makes static type sounds when I turn it on.

I would replace or at least resolder the connections on the cable jack on the tv itself. You seem to have a loose ground or cold solder joint on the ground portion of the jack. Be sure as well to check that your actual cable has a good solid end on it as well.

Need diagram to connect Motorola DVR, Panasonic DMR-E recorder, A/V Receiver, and HDTV

Your not going to be able to connect in series (not sure if thats your goal) since your limited by the type of connections you can use. Your receiver is going to have to be switched depeneding on what source you want to listen too. DVR, DVD, etc. HDMI is going to important for your TV connection. Radio Shack has cheap HDMI cables.
So... connect HDMI from DVR to HDTV this will give you sound and picture to TV. Connect DVR optical or coaxial ( RCA if you dont care about surround) to Receiver to give you DVR sound thru Receiver input.
Connect DVD to receiver via optical/coaxial/rca for DVD sound thru receiver (again RCA is not recommended for surround).
Connect Component video to HDTV(or HDMI if TV has second HDMI input) to give you video from DVD.
Connect Yellow video or S-video from DVR to DVD recorder input to allow recording from DVR. Also connect red/white audio to (same) DVD input.
That should cover it.

Connecting up

Easy set up, Hook up all the components to the back of the TV normally and then use a stereo cable from the tv to your reciever.
Usually on the tv it says audio out or variable audio out, this will go straight to your reciever on one input allowing all devices on your tv to be hooked through your reciever on one cable and the sound will come from the tv and reciever at the same time or you can turn the audio off on the tv., you can also hook up any optical audio outs from your devices to your reciever as well. This will allow for surround sound to your reciever.
