Hello fixedopsmike,

There is a fuse in the TV set, if you would like to check and see if it has blown, here is a way you can do it:

1) Unplug the TV's power cord from the wall

2) Take the back off of the TV by removing the screws and slowly removing the back panel.

3) Look for a component that looks like a glass tube with metallic caps on each of the ends, this will be the fuse.

4) Visually inspect the fuse to see if it shows signs of being open (Blown) These signs are burn marks inside of the glass tube, an open conductor (wire) inside of the glass tube, or no visible wire inside of the tube.

5) using a multimeter set to resistance (R x 1) test the fuse for continuity (remove and change the fuse if found to be defective)

6) If the fuse is not bad, reinstall the fuse if removed, put the rear cover back on.

Now at this point we have determined if the problem is a fuse being blown or not, if you replace the fuse and the TV works great the problem is solved, if you replace the fuse and it blows again, or if the fuse was ok to begin with, then you have a problem that will require some knowledge of electronics pass the basics to continue on. At this point I would suggest that you call a qualified TV repair technician to troubleshoot and repair the TV in question.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

My Toshiba 32AV500U - the picture went blank.


This problem usually happens when the lamp runs out, verify how old is your TV, lamps have a life spend of aprox. 3 years, most likely you would have to replace the bulb so your TV can start running again!!

Dark spots on LCD screen


I hate to say it but what this is is contamination under the actual LCD glass. This propblem starts during the manufacturing process and can rear its ugly head over time or after running at high temperatures for long periods of time. It can also appear as dark 'tiger' stripes. There is nothing that can be done to repair this. If you have an extended warranty, the mfg should exchange the panel for you. If your warranty is up, take photos and contact Toshiba online and try to get them to cover this regardless. This is a mfg defect.

I think you answered your own question. You have a rear projection television. It sounds like the lamp is not functioning correctly.
All projection lamps have a recommended life measured in hours. I checked the web and this model appears to be about 3 or 4 years old. from 2005 or so.
The lamp in my Samsung is rated at 3000 to 5000 hours, I had 12,800 when the service Tech was in changing another part.
3 or 4 years running one lamp is a good run. This is why DLP has lost favor for table top sets, Most are LCD or Plasma now.
Check you TV for it's lamp model and them shop around allot. Lamps are not cheap however some suppliers offer much better pricing that others. Care should be taken to make sure you order and purchase real replacement lamp and not a clone / compatible model. Original parts should produce the picture you are expecting

I have a Toshiba TV/DVD/VCR combo model # MW27F51-had it for a couple of years. Turned it on, have sound but no picture. I have the cover off the back of it now.


sound like a defective part inside the set. i could tell you what one went bad, this is not user servicable, and could shock you bad. i would take it for service or get a new one. due to the cost of these against the cost of repair.rule of electronics-if the cost of repair is 60% of a new one you should not repair it. good luck! hope this helps!

Is my Toshiba MW27F51 TV Digital?


pretty much if the television is older than a year-it probably has analog tuner. you can buy digital box (add-on) i have one and it does make picture nice. about 40.00 bucks. i'm ot sure if they still offer the card that gives you a 40.00 dollar off. look up digital converter box. good-luck, hope this helps!
