Question about Toshiba CZ36V51 36" TV

1 Answer

What's the cost to fix a cold solder joint? our tv picture will cut out and on/off red light blinks as well.

The picture on the tv cuts out sometimes and the screen is snowy. the red on/off light blinks. it doesn't do this all of the time. i see where someone said that it could be a cold solder somewhere.

SOURCE: Picture and sound does not always come "on"

Trimmer, you`ve narrowed it down to a certain section and your absolutely correct that it is a bad solder joint, there are 2 things you can do, first get a bright light and a magnifying glass and go over the bottom of the board and look for it, should be fairly obvious with the magnifier, if not go here and order a can of "Freeze mist" this is a great "tool" for finding intermittents, it`s coolant in a spray can, have someone watch the screen while you spray in the area of the intermittent, when you hit the bad part the set will work, re-solder the part and any joints around it that look bad, end of problem, good luck with it, BMW Rider

Sounds like a cold solder joint somewhere.

SOURCE: TV cuts off w/o warning & power red light

This may seem like silly answers but...
1. Be sure the power supply is plugged in all the way and that it is not damaged anywhere on the cord all the way up to the TV.
2. Be sure the Sleep Timer is not activated. You wouldn't believe how many times this is actually the case.
If these end up not the case then it is very possible that the safety circuitry in your TV's board could be going out. The TV is shutting it down due to it finding a problem with the circuitry in the TV. Most of the time people choose to replace the TV with a newer model as it is just cheaper to replace it than to have it repaired. This usually only happens in older TV's although I have seen it in TV's as little as 4 years old.

Problem with flat screen tv picture

Sounds like a possible "cold" solder joint on one of the circuit boards.
Majority of these intermittent problems is caused by either a broken solder joint and can be fixed if you inspect the different boards that
are present in your unit. Use a magnifier to help you find these "cold"
or "broken" solder joint(s). You will also need a soldering iron (~40W)
and some solder to reconnect/reflow these broken joint(s).

My sony trinitron 32' image flashes off and on but sound is ok and i am not getting a blinking red light error code.Can i fix myself or for cheap?

if you have a soldering iron, just re soldered cold soldered joints at the pin of the components at the main board which may get loose contact.

Audio and picture go dead red light blinks 7 times

A protection circuit has cut in - possibly due to a fault in the line output stage (flyback transformer could be short-circuit and horizontal output transistor could also be shorted).

Assuming the power supply/HT rail is all OK, replace the above parts, touch up any suspect solder joints, check and replace any capacitors (electrolytic and the tuning caps in the collector of the horizontal transistor - always replace these caps (rated at around 2kV - 6kV) whenever you replace the flyback)

When turned on using the remote, the sound comes on but no picture. If the tv is then unplugged and replugged in the picture will come on. This all started when we began using remotes for our Christmas...

Hi amerleak, my name is John. Welcome to FixYa. Could be that the remotes are sending signals to the TV sensor, but also could be a cold solder joint in one or more of the TV circuits, or even a connector plug. The only way to check it is to remove the back cover and check all the circuits for bad solder joints. Over time the TV when it gets turned on, these solder joints get hot, then when it gets cut off, these joints cool off, making tiny cracks,(bad joints) in the circuits. These joints need to be resoldered. Thanks for choosing FixYa....John

3-D picture with color lines

Seems TV has dry/ cold solder joints (loos connections) in convergence out section.
Please check cold/ dry solder joints in convergence out section in TV, specially on pins of convergence out ICs. resolder these solder joints and all would be fine.
