Check the LVDS cable and all the other cables inside to make sure that they are plugged in all the way, otherwise it could be a bad panel

Picture image is unsettled when you 1st turn on the TV - Eventually gets better after warming up for 15 minutes. Rear projection HD 56" screen - About 8 years old.

LINES or noise from left to right etc. This is a classic problem in a lot of these sets--that this clears up after a while is also typical---the period will gradually get longer and longer for it to become normal.

This set uses a Hyper board for all signal from all inputs---about two dozen tiny surface mounted filter capacitors on that board---they dry out and lose value---flat caps will when hot attempt to regain some of the value they should have.

Board is no longer available from Toshiba, only way to fix is remove one in set and send out for repair to someone like PTS Electronics.

I have seen experts try to replace the tiny caps--usually several are off value or open---cheaper to send board out. Last one I saw cost was about 200 for rebuild, keep in mind same problem will happen again in 5-8 years.

Let me know if you have questions and if this told you something you did not know, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Our Saeco italia has an error message: Need to prime. but it will not prime when water knob is turned on...

i had this same problem and it turns out a small mineral deposit was lodged in the water line, right before it went in to the second heater (to make steam). The cost to repair and shipping was pretty high, so i fixed it myself and it's not too hard. You can try de-scaling. If you want take the water line apart, let me know and I'll walk you through it.

Jvc av 36950 went off while watching, the same sound that you get when you turn set off. No sound, no picture, no red power light

This TV has a common problem. I've found dozens of owners with the same complaint. See the following blog for a simple fix for your set. I tried it and it worked and I spent under 2 bucks to fix it myself at home!

Good Luck......Kim

TV Screen

im pretty sure you cant fix that you probably need to buy a new one.. i know that because my somputer has a white line that runs right down that middle, not all the time but sometimes. my father looked into fixing it and he found out that you have to buy a brand new screen or tower or something like that.

Power on issue

I had the same thing happen recently.
I wish it was better news but It's a Capacitor that's burning out.
For myself, I just grabbed another monitor from my garage but I did look up the problem first and found video's on how to fix the problem.
It requires some soldering and a little talent along those lines.
I have no doubt I could do it, I just didn't feel like doing it then.
At the bottom of this post is one link to a DIY Fix it vid.
Another option is to find a used monitor.
Of course there are sites like E-Bay or Craig's that you could try but there is a recycle site that people give things away and take things on, called (freecycle).
This is a great site, I've used it in both directions many times with no problems.
NOTE: Use common sense.
I recommend that anytime your going to meet someone from the web you don't know that you take someone with you or at the very least tell someone exactly where you going and any other pertinent info.
Here are the 2 links I mentioned

Several dozen thin horizontal white lines across the top of screen, all channels

These beasts are monsters to get into and service without the proper extenstion cables and a service manual. there are no user replaceable parts inside this set. if you know solid state serviceing, you can try and fix it. There is a bad capacitor or capacitors in the vertical sweep circuit and or the vertical output IC is bad also. If you can solder and unsolder go for it. But if you do not or know how the circuit Works Please find a trained tech to assist you with this repair. Good Luck. PS please do not forget to rate this.
