Re: Sound and no picture.

A blown fuse is only a symptom, not the problem. The problem is somewhere else in the unit... From what you're describing here something is keeping your HV down and that could be any number circuits... This type of problem is a challenge even for the best of technicians and not something you're going to resolve with less than several thousand dollars worth of test equipment at hand and one heck of a lot more experience than I've ever seen on this board... No disrespect intended... That said, I would start by testing the regulator circuit. Look for any signs of heat stressed components. Test the HOT for short and check the FBT and splitter. Something in the B+ line is the culprit. But my best advice is take it to a reputable shop and get an estimate before any repairs are done. If you don't understand ask for explanations. If that isn't doing it ask different shop or get a second opinion. Good Luck Bill

My Toshiba TheaterView has no sound or picture

You may have overloaded your audio output with the external speakers(impedance or short wire problem?)as a result the audio out i.c maybe damaged which in turn may have blown one of several fuses in the power supply.maybe regular GMA type fuse or picofuses,you can try replacing blown fuse but if they blow right back you`ll need the help of a repairman

Possible problems: * The TV set may be unplugged. * A fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or switched off. * The remote control unit (RCU) may be disabled. Solutions: * Make sure the TV/VCR are plugged in and the wall switch is on. * Check the fuse or circuit breaker. Test the outlet with a lamp. * Replace the RCU's batteries: if this fails exchange the unit.
