Question about Toshiba 65HDX82 65" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Screen want black

Similarly to the recent posting by bwb68, when I turn on the TV I hear the speakers click on and the red power light glows but there is no picture or sound. We were in the middle of Lemony Snickets when it just went blank. Other devices on the same surge protector kept working fine so I am concerned. I got this baby new in 11/02 and it has been good so far. Am I in big trouble or can I fix this on my own? I hate to spend the money on a repairman to tell me I am screwed. Help and thanks, Glenn

Re: Screen want black

Well you've come to the right place - - even though this is one you probably can't fix yourself this "repairman" is here to tell you that you're not screwed either... From what you've explained it sounds like the SMPS (switch mode power supply) or something in the B+ volatges are at fault. The fact that the TV does power means that your lower voltages are still working and the x-ray protection circuit is probably keeping the unit from doing any critical damage to itself. So, my best professional advice is, have an expert look at it.. As a couple of tips: (1) Find a good reputable shop. Call NESDA and ask for phone numbers to some or their member shops in your area. (2) Take the unit to the shop yourself. Have a buddy help you load it in the back of a truck, strap it down, and take it in.. Much of the cost will be in transporting. (3) Have it estimated before any repairs and know ahead of time what the shop charges to estimate the job. (4) Ask to have the technician save all the old parts and compare those parts later with what work is outlines on the final invoice. The kind of repair you have there is something I do every day, sometimes two and three times a day - - to TV's that are far less worthy. Hope this helps! Bill

I have the Toshiba Theaterview. Was watching it when I heard a sound and the screen went black. The Red Light will come on and glow steady and you hear it click when you try to turn it on or off but...

Something is causing the TV shut down or go in to 'protect' mode.
It is unusual to actually hear a component inside the TV go bad, but you obviously did. Probably in the main power supply or something that normally uses a higher voltage in the TV since you heard it..

My Grand Wega KFE50A10 has a black screen. When started the power/standby light flashes green and the fan starts. After a period the same light starts flashing red in blocks of five. What does this...

Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast. But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 6000 hrs,2-4 yrs it could be time to replace the lamp.The lamp you need is XL2400 you can find it here: .Have a blessed one!

Nothing happens only power button lights or turns off

Count the number of flashes for the red power button. I'm not a Hitachi owner, but you can track one down here on fixya and they''ll give you more info. One of the internal components have failed and is keeping the power supply unit from firing up. Do you hear a relay click when you try to turn it on? If so, how many times does it try to fire up?

Blinking red power light - set will not turn on

Were the pale blue lines real thin in a slight diagonal from bottom to top of your screen? If so you either have a bad component in the blue drive, Blue CRT socket or your Blue CRT is shorted.Try removing the blue CRT socket and trying to power up your set for a moment without the blue socket attached to the tube. Be sure the CRT socket doesn't touch any components when you try this. Let me know if the set starts up without the blue.
