Question about Toshiba 42HL167 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

How much will it cost to repair a Toshiba 42HL167?

My husband and I just bought our first LCD TV, we decided to go with a Re-certified Toshiba 42HL167, because we would save over $500 than from a new one. What we didn't realize is that Re-certified TV's through Toshiba only have a 90 Day warranty, which frankly concerns us.
We found an extended warranty through GE, but it is really overpriced ($323 for 3 yrs) and we're not sure if we should go through with the hassle of purchasing a warranty if the repairs are not as expensive.

My question is, should the bulb in our TV burn out, how much will it cost us to repair it? And is it worth buying the $300+ in warranty?

Any insight would be helpful.
Thank you.
Jennifer N.

Yes you should always buy the warranty on big ticket items like, your television. One repair can easily cost you more than the cost of the warranty. Hope this answers your question.

Is my REGZA 42" 42HL167


This REGZA 42" 42HL167 has ATSC digital tuner built-in. when you set the TV to scan for channels, you must set the source to AIR, not CABLE. Since the Digital TV signals use the Old UHF band for transmission, your amplifier is made for this band? Try it without th amp first.

Please leave rating if it helps

Tv will not turn on


Possibly not.. in this case with the 42HL167, the CPU pcb (most commonly referred to the SEINE PCB) is having issues booting and just isn't starting up.

My friend gave me his 42HL167 after this problem started after a power event during a storm and I managed to fix it by reloading the firmware.

I posted instructions on my website at:

http://www.benjammin.net/www/pages/techtips/Toshiba-Regza-42HL167.html

Once I figured out some of the facts, it was a breeze...

I posted this elsewhere here since there's so many duplicate threads... trying the firmware update is simple, so it's worth trying that first since the case doesn't need to be opened.

Lcd toshioba tv 42'' damaged screen could it be repaired


If you mean cracked or smashed when you say "damaged", the answer is yes, but it would be far less expensive to buy a new set!
We are an authorized service center for Toshiba. The replacement LCD panels are typically more expensive than the entire set was new! Go figure...

How do i take the stand off of my toshiba tv model 42hl167?


Ok, this is what I did. I had to remove the four screws in the back of the tv. You can look in your manual for what screws or look up toshiba.com ... customer support, and enter your model number and from there you should be able to find the manual.

BROKEN FLAT SCREEN


I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the cost of replacement LCD panels are about 1200.00 dollars. If you would like me to try and locate a distributor for new replacements I will.
