Bad wire or a bad solder. you can have this repaired if you have the service manual of the computer as it shows the full anatomy of the machine. Or a local computer shop is always a good option.

What component board on the Toshiba regza 42rv530u needs to be replaced? Where can I purchase this component online?

My advice is take it to a television repairer. It is far cheaper in the long run. Fixya is full of people who have bought every board off eBay and still don't have a television that works. Correct diagnosis is the key plus experience of that particular make or model. The course to be a television engineer is 2 years full time college course.

I get a pink screen depending on the angle of the screen. I have to keep it at a shallow angle to normalise the colour.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

ViewSonic VP201b with Black screen. I think the problem is the back light power supply. If I shine a light on it at an angle I can see the image on the screen. what is the part number to get a replac


The power supply board is model L20C-2 In most cases you can repair the board cheaper than you can purchase a new one. The problem is the filter capacitors go out and this keeps the back light bulbs from powering up right. If you feel like doing the repair on the board here is a link that shows the board with the bad parts circled and a parts list on the capacitors that needs to be replaced.

From your description it sound like you have a faulty video cable or the video connector on the motherboard is loose.
Reseat the connector and it may solve your problem.
