A common cause is a failure in the one of the scan amplifiers or on the high voltage section. It is also possible to have a power supply fault that will give this error message.

I have a 1993 Toshiba 32 inch tv. suddenly there is no sound. The mute is NOT turned on. What might be the problem?


Hi kohn,



Plug your headset to the earphone jack (if installed) of the TV.

If you can hear the sound there, the fault may due to open(defective) internal speakers or the earphone jack itself. Faulty internal speaker may replaced with new sets to back your sound to normal again. If the earphone jack was faulty, you may spray it first with electrical contact cleanerwhile inserting and pulling the headset plug into it for one minute to clean the contact. If nothing happens, this jack need to replaced with new one.


If you can't hear the sound after inserting your headset, this is an indication that the audio circuitry was gone bad. The most common caused of this trouble was the faulty sound IC(mounted in heatsink). This is the one converts the audio signal to sound and feed to your speaker's. I would advice you to look for a qualified technician to check this parts.




Hope I helped you.


Have a nice day!


Thanks for using Fixya.

TV turned off by itself and now it won't turn back on


If the tv has nothing happening at all when you try and turn it back on including any noise, your power supply is broken. If it is still trying to turn on or does make noise, an internal component has come loose or been knocked off, most likely to your picture tube.

No picture, then no picture and no sound


if your could hear a slight ticking (tick-tick tick) or whining then some electronic component might have been damaged (shorted). if you have no experience repairing electronic equipments then i suggest you to send your TV to a service station!

TV making chirping sound


If one of the secondary supplies is shorted, the power supply will "chirp" when plugged in. This is the power supply's way of protecting itself and this usually happens when the horizontal output transistor is shorted. If this set was in my shop and needed a new output transistor, a fair price would be right around $100.

Tv will not come on at all


I had the same problem with my Sylvania TV. Turned out that the power supply in the tv was bad and had to be replaced. TV worked great for about 2 years then the same thing happened again. I recommend buying another brand.

No pic, no sound


Hey Wilt: We had the same problem, for the same model of Toshiba TV. Had it repaired yesterday. Turns out the problem was the power supply (P.C.B). The total cost was $192.66 Canadian funds (taxes and labour all in). Our model was 6 years old, buts its playing like a brand new unit now. Hope this helped ...... Good luck
