Question about Toshiba TheaterWide 52HM84 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

TV has sound but no picture

When turning the TV on, there is a slight cracking/static sound that occurs. The RED light somes on, then in about 5 secs, the green light adjacent to hit, will flash for 3 secs (simultaneous to the red being continuously on) and then both will shut off with the sound of the TV. This will be automatic without prompt of the remote. After that, the monitor will automatically turn itself "on" (with no picture) with only the sound being displayed.
This will continuw 3,4 maybe 5 times than both green light and red light will both flash with NO sound nor picture.

What is the problem with the monitor? What do I/should I do???
I have a Toshiba Model 52HM84 52" TV

    I also have the cracking sound and no picture. I have purchase 2 new bulbs and neither brought back the picture. I have sound, the usual flashing lights indicating a bad bulb. Where do you find the fuse and how do you know if the fuse is bad.

    We were watching a movie on our Toshiba 52HM84 (about 4 years old) when I heard a quiet pop and the screen went dark. Now it cycles the power 4 or 5 times with the red and green lights going thru their green on, red on, red blink, then both off sequence. The sound comes on the first few times then it stops trying and shuts off.

It is possible one of the internal fuses blew out.
It could be a bad horizontal outut transistor.
It could be a bad secondary of the power supply went bad
And many other things.
If it's just a fuse, it won't cost much, but a lot of them do not look like you would expect a fuse to look like.It might be a little yellow, green, or gray rectangualar box shaped part. :D

Flashing green power light


If the model indicated here is right It could be in the power supply and this model sometimes fails where light just blinks--that could be also convergence issue--in this model there is a way to disconnect the power going to the convergence board to see if set will then turn on.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times


helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

When i turn on the tv 52" rca rear projection the power light goes on and off but it does not turn on.it takes everal attempts before i get picture and sound


Does it make a slight popping or cracking sound ? If so remove the back cover and see if the flyback transformer shows any sign of burning or arcing. It is located on the far rt. hand rear side with a red wire comming out of the top and a black one behind and lower than the red one.

Loud static type snap from tv


TV's use high voltage to generate the stream of electrons traveling across the picture tube hitting the screen and lighting it up (thus the name Cathode Ray Tube). It takes about 25,000 volts to do this. In normal air, it takes about 1000 volts to jump an inch of air, so the high voltage transformer needs to have good insulation. It generates the voltage through a technique of charging the transformer's magnetic field with a low voltage of about 140 volts then letting it go where upon it flys back out the high voltage side at much high levels (Thus the common name flyback). A most common failure in a CRT type TV is for the insulation to crack in this transformer which is a unique component for each model of TV and leak out the current overstressing the circuit driving it. You can liken it to a little bolt of lightning getting loose in the circuit and has the same sound on a smaller scale.
It would be well to replace your flyback transformer before it gets worse and blows up something else as well. Best done by a professional used to handling high voltage. The picture tube can retain voltage even when the TV is unplugged for some time, and replacing the anode lead (the big red one) can be dangerous.
Hope Ya Fix It!
