    I have the same issue, takes about 3 minutes for sound and picture to turn on. I read to spray the switch, is that the main on/off button on the front of the TV? and if it is do I just spray around this button and hope that it pentrates into the switch behind??

Go to radio/tv supply and get a can of contact cleaner and spray the switch. Be sure the spray is safe for plastic.

try turning off AND unplug for a couple minutes! USB may have pulled power down to start the switching noise. Try usb again and if it does it again then I wouldn't use that usb anymore.

Hi
You seem to have bad solder joints.
If you are handy with a soldering iron you can take off the back cover and knock around the circuit(using something non conductive , i.e a wooden salad spoon) to locate the area of the problem.
Start by following the speakers wires to the connector(s) on the circuit board and the audio output i.c should be near by and mounted on a heathsink, thats the general area where you might find bad solders, you may have to do a bunch of them before you get to it as they are not allways apparent.
Hope this will help good luck

I have a Toshiba cx35e70 tv. The problem began as a turn on, live screen, no channels, no sound. I found that when I would tap on the tuner on the main board the problem would disappear. Every thing worked...


Is the VCR going through ch 3 or video inputs - if video inputs your TV tuner is likely bad if through ch 3 seeif te picture goes funny on ch 3 without using the VCR the tuner may be bad on higher band channels - smetimes you can remove the tuner and resolder the tuner itself. But if it always works with the VCR just use it that way and don't bother with the fix.

Picture fails


hi,

sounds like a high voltage issue, it will have to go in, i dont recommend self servicing that. may sound strange but Ive seen several tvs go by way of spouse having a plant above or near the tv, that person watering it and a few hours later mad spouse sitting in front of a busted tv that sounded just like that. also I had a cat that sprayed one and it did that. just a couple ideas for ya.

Green picture


you have a defect in the tube. the green gun has a low emission problem. sometimes you can correct it by running the heater grid above ground. also when it goes green try tapping the front of the tube with a scredriver very gently, carbon build up on the guns can short it to the heater grid.

I have sound but no opicture


When you replaced the flyback the new flyback is shipped with the screen and focus controls set at minimum. These are the 2 controls on the flyback itself. Turn the set on and let it warm up a minute, then slowly turn up the screen (bottom) control with a small flat-head screwdriver. When the picture is around normal brightness, adjust the focus (top) control until the picture is nice and sharp. Then, turn the brightness and contrast all the way down and set the screen control until you can just see the picture, just above the point where the picture vanishes. Reset the brightness and contrast settings and your picture will be back to perfect.

Set needs to be slapped to get a picture


TV's need a good slap once in a while to set them right! Just kidding. Sounds like you have a bad connection that once the set is warm it mends itself. Have a technician look at it.
