Hello ashleewith2e,

This sounds like a high voltage problem or a picture tube issue (burnt out filament). I would first determine if you had high voltage at the anode of the TV by using a high voltage probe. If you do not have high voltage then I would suspect the voltage doubler, the IHVT (Integrated High Voltage Transformer) or the Horizontal Output Transistor (I doubt this only because you don't have a power supply failure and I would expect this in a modern TV since the high voltage supply is tied to the low voltage supply), the more likely suspect is the voltage doubler. Second possibility I would check is the CRT socket board and CRT filament. Unplug the TV and with a multimeter set to read resistance check to see if the filament pins read a low resistance if so the filament is good. Plug the TV back in and turn it on and check the voltage on the CRT board and compare them to the schematic values. These two tests should localize the issue. Now, If you have a background in electronics, this should be no problem to do, however if you do not have a background in electronics, I would suggest that you have a qualified TV technician troubleshoot and repair this TV set.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

I have the same TV and what is happing is the TV has 2 recievers in it to allow the PIP, So you have a power pack gone on 1 reciever the other is working, Your set has 2 power packs,1 for each receiver.
I had both of mine go, 150$ a piece to have fixed, good luck.

Toshiba 32a43 32' picture garbled mess


If you can get the tv to display the blue blackground(usually happens when there is no antenna or cable feed to tv) check to see if the whole screen is a solid blue, if it shows discolored areas around the screen then you might have to "demag" the screen. See if you can rent a demad coil from a tv shop and with tv on turn the coil in circular movements all over the front of screen till blue is solid.good luck!

YOUR TV HAS A SMALL PROBLEM,
TAKE IT TO W/SHOP, AND LET THEM CHECK THE FOLLOWING,
LINE TRANSFORMER,
LINE TRANSISTOR, AFTER CUTOFF.
CAPACITORS- ESPECIALLY ELECTROLITIC the wax-oil at times drys up, hence it changes capacitance
DONT FORGET ZENER DIODES, for stability of output voltages

TV picture flickers


If your DVD player is separate from your tv, you might have a loose cable plug or connection. Depending on the type of flicker you have, a vertical circuit loose connection would cause this. If you could connect it to a cable or antenna it might tell you where the problem is located. A faulty circuit in the DVD might cause this too. Stargazer
