4 yr old Toshiba jumps when turned on

My tv jumps for about 15 minutes until it warms up and then it slowly stops and the picture is fine. It does this every time I turn on the tv.

See this link: seems to be a common problem among Toshibas that use a Hyper scan module.

Take it to a tech if you have not done so. your problem is lose solder.your board needs to be rsoldered over to connect your component properly over the years heat from the operation of the tv cause the soldr to lose grip on the board.good luck

I have a Sony Trinitron about 7 yrs old. The picture is flashing on and off. The sound is constant. The flashing was happening about the first 5-10 minutes after turning it on then it would stop. Now its...

Hi there
Sorry to be the one to have tell you that but yes your tube is dying.
In sony tv`s the video(picture) is off until the tube has warmed up and now that it is getting weaker it has difficulty reaching the point where it will bring out the video.
If you want to clear that problem for a while , you can open the back of the set.
You will see a round transformer(flyback) with two controls on it and a thick red wire that connects to the back of the tube.
With the tv on turn the lower control up slowly , you`ll see the brilliance go up and that will help with the flashing picture for a while.
If you see lines across the picture when you adjust that control it is because you have reach the max the tube can take , just turn it back down until they disappear .
Hope this help have fun

Toshiba 27af45 turns off by itself every 15 do I fix

I think the timer setting in your TV is broken. Try fixing this.

I sorry to say I think you have a component failing that is related to heat. 15 years is a long time and if the TV was used in hpot conditions over the years it may well be the proble, or it's just old.

Sony Trinitron KV35V35

Could be a weak Picture tube . You can try turning up the screen control but don't turn it up too much you'll get retrace lines in the picture . Turn it alittle at time until picture comes on then turn it down until the retrace lines go away . Then try turning the tv on and off to make sure it comes back on. Be careful you can get shocked if you do this while it is on and you touch one of the circuits . The control is on the flyback or the module thats on the picture tube it will say screen by it . If this does not work you could have vidoe problems or just the picture is no good . Good luck

Sony tv snow for first 5 minutes on

Probably dry solder joints in the tuner section.

When the set warms up, the faulty joint/s make contact, then lose contact again when it cools down.

Picture cuts off and on

Sounds like you could have bad solder connections inside the tuner of that set.

36" CRT Toshiba has that vertical issue mentioned on here a bit

Your problem is most likely caused by a cold solder joint in the vertical circuit. Normally this is easy to find and correct. The problem will only get worse over time, but not likely for more damage to occur.
