Question about Toshiba 36A50 36" TV

1 Answer

A friend wants to sell us this tv for $75.

But it is 11 years old. Everything is working fine on it now. We just want it to last a couple years. Is this a good deal or is he getting way over on us?

Looks like this television goes from $100-$200 on Craigslist. If your only looking for a cheap fix for a few years, I can assume you are in the right ballpark. It certainly wont have the movie style quality picture, but after all, it is better than paying $1,000.00 for an LCD. Remember, these televisions will most likely require the digital converter box come this Feb. if you want to watch regular channels w/o cable.

My sony wega keeps cutting off then coming back .


a couple of years old can be a long time:

has the TV been on 24\7

It's the amount of hours that matters..

electrolytic capacitors typically last 3000 to 5000 hours....

Special "long life" caps last close to 7000
but the caps in most consumer electronics, even broadcast equipment 3-5K hours.

Vizio HDTV totally not workinig


It sounds like a problem with the power supply. I had the same thing happen on a TV that was only a couple of years old. It did the same thing that you have mentioned. Once in a great while, it would turn on, and then we'd just leave it on because we didn't know when we would be able to get it to work again. The problem was, to buy a power supply for it we could get another TV. It just wasn't worth it.

Your flatscreen might be under warranty. I would look into that.

Hitachi tv repair?


I get people all the time bringing rear-projection TV's in to my shop, that a friend of theirs gave to them. There is a reason why people give them a way (even better - sell them to their friends) cause these sets have many problems, are expensive to repair, and they want something better. Your money is better spent on something new. Just make sure you google the model number you intend to buy first with the words "repair" or "complaint" in the search, in order to not get one of the many new sets that are customer service nightmares.

Tv lost color


Your problem most likely is on the signal board is my guess. If your not a technician it would be in your best interest to have him check L2C60 on the signal board.
