Question about Toshiba 32HL67 32 in. LCD Television
The tv turns on for about three seconds then the picture goes away, but the sound is still working just fine.
SOURCE: my tv has sound but no picture
If you haven't bricked this unit yet, or paid Syntax/Olevia's highway-robbery price to fix it (and pay STUPID prices to ship it to and fro), there is hope. Despite what Syntax and others say, it IS a replace-able part that can help get your TV to last at least another 12-24 months. During that time, you can save for a new, more reliable and reputable TV.
This is a well-known (at least those of us who had ours fail before yours) symptom of a bad backlight power inverter, which, for the LT30HV is a pain in the arse to get to (it's behind the main power distribution board and motherboard w/Pixelworks chip). If you can take apart a tower computer and install I/O cards, you can do this. These parts are made cheaply in China with 64 weld points that fail 100% of the time - and many other 'name' brand LCD TVs use this exact same CCFL backlight inverter. I'm working on posting the procedure somewhere on the net. The procedure shown in MoniServ's website is on a Kreisen set, which looks FAR more easily serviced than the LT30HV.

The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.
I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.
The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.
My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.
Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

Thre 24vdc power supply or backlight inverter boards may have gone out, those are the places you ned to check first.
First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there are some troubleshoot you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.
