Toshiba TV Mod. TV32D60

My Toshiba TV Mod. TV32D60 has trouble turning on, must unplug and replug several times. Switch light flashes each time. Is this a switch problem or something more serious? If it is switch, can new switch be purchased and relaced by myself. Set is 14 years old but perfect picture. I'm asking you because you have made intelligrent reply to others.
Hope you can advise me. Thanks

    Your solution dated Dec. 23/08 sounds like it may be helpful but it involves turning off the television which I am very reluctant to do as I may not be able to turn it on again. For the time being I am leaving the tv on continually and will try your suggestion should I ever have to turn the television off.

    Thanks

The problem is not likely to be a switch. I believe that your set has what is called a "switch mode" power supply. This requires oscillation to occur. The oscillation is started by a capacitor circuit. If the cap becomes defective, the oscillation may not start and thus the TV won't come on. Unfortunately this is not a set with which I am intimately familiar so I can not tell you what part to replace. This should be a simple repair however. Check around at a few service shops to see if you can have it examined without a large expense. In the meantime, I'll see if I can find a service manual for it.

One other thing you can try (fi you can solder) is to look for poor solder joints on the main board. If some exist, they can change the circuit characteristics enough to cause what you are seeing. Look for and resolder any joints that appear to be grainy or have rings.


Keep me posted.

Why doesn't it turn on?


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

Blinking codes details of many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

TV won't turn on even though it starts green, then goes off


Although my tv still does the "turn green and turn off" thing, I simply unplugged and repluggd the tv. After I did that, I pushed the "ON" button on the tv itself, unplugging and replugging the tv until it finally came on. I think the "instant warm-up" switch is going out.

No Power


does the front green led light flash?
unplug the set for 30 min then replug try to turn on. if the light does not flash then i might be a main fuse. Point... main fuse falure ussally means more than just fuse. if the light flashes then you have a shutdown condition. This set processor shuts it down for 1 or 25 different reasons as technicians we have a computer that reads errors much like a cars error codes.

TV turns off by itself after being on for 60 seconds


Led blinking Three times means B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit, check T603 and R672.
Hope this helps.

Toshiba 43A61 - No Picture, no sound


If your set all of a sudden won't come on, e.g., the screen is blank, but the LED on the under the screen next to the on/off switch keeps flashing, then there may be an internal fault on the set that needs to be reset.
To force the reset, try this:
  • Unplug the set and wait a few seconds
  • Replug and see if the video returns
Whenever the set senses an internal fault through its monitoring circuitry, it essentially shuts down the set. The flashing LED provides the indication that a fault has been detected. Removing power to the set resets the monitoring circuitry. When plugged back in, the circuitry again does a check of the system. If it finds that there truly is a problem, then the set is shut down and the LED will again flash. In this case, you need to call a service tech. Most of the time, however, the unplug/replug routine is enough to get the set up and running.
