Re: toshiba 3387db has stopped working

Did you hard wire the stereo directly to the TV's speakers or audio circuit? IF thats what you mean, bad idea, you probably blew the audio amp which can hold down the power supply and cause the tv not come on

My Toshiba TV 3386DB won't come out of standby. When turned on it stays on red standby and green light flashing. Can some one help me to fix my tv

Dear it better take it to a Professional Service man.
or if you want to do it by yourself then open it and check the 103volts at the Collector Point of Horizontal Section Drive.

Toshiba 36a43 i have picture but no sound. Volume control works but again still no sound.

Things to check:

In menu are speakers (audio area) switched on or off?

If you put sound all the way up and listen right at speaker what if anything do you hear?

If using a cable or sat box is sound turned down on it?

Is sound muted on set or the box (if used)

Do you have sound with a DVD etc hooked via the rear jacks?

A few sets have a slide switch on the rear= internal or external speakers--is it set to internal?

failing all of the above you have a audio circuit problem

I have a Toshiba 3387DB TV and am trying to connect it to my laptop. Tried to use DVI (out of laptop) to RGB phonos cable. Then through a scart adapter into the Scart 1 socket at back of TV. Manual says...

You need to convert the component sync signals into a composite sync compatible with SCART. The red, green and blue signals can be connected through as-is.

No sound at all. FAO is off Speaker says on. Set on stereo. Will an outside speaker work? Where to find speaker? Must use stereo?

just replace your speaker or resolder the audio amplifier,to check ur speaker you must full the wire and connect it to a 1.5v battery hear the sound if theres asound ur speaker is ok maybe the audio amplifier is the problem

Speakers in a toshiba 35 tube blown

I spent hte whole day moving my girlfriend and the only thing I got out of it was a TV with no sound coming out of it. I turned the speakers "on" in the menu screen, then i used the speaker output of the tv to a stereo or a couple of cheap speakers. Or connect 1 speaker and set the tv to mono. Hopefully your tv has some form of audio out besides the built in speakers. Good Luck

Sound is ridiculously low

if it is a stereo tv, there should be rca jacks on the back of the tv [red,white yellow] try connecting the rca outputs to a stereo system and see if the volume is any different.there might be a loose connection to the tv speakers inside.if you have a cable box hooked up to your tv, check the connections in back. you can also try bypassing the cable box by connecting the cable wire directly into the tv to see if it's the tv. if it is the cable box try unplugging it for a minute then hook it up again.i had the same problem with my cable box. hooking it up to a stereo system sounds like a pain, but at least you will have sound.
good luck

One speaker has stopped working

It could be the cable connecting to the speaker, or the speaker itself. Try taking the cable that's connected to the left speaker and connecting it to the right speaker. If it works, the cable connected to your right speaker is defective, if it doesn't work - your speaker is.

Using 2 Pc speakers on my Tv

1)probable incompatibility issue--for comparison did you try a set of headphones? 2)The RCA audio outputs on the tv can go to an amplifier that has speakers attached,ie surround sound. 3)Caution==never try to alter vol level at spkr!
