Question about Toshiba 55ZV650U 55 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Tashiba 55ht1u will not turn on. The light comes on and it flickers like it wants to turn on for a few seconds and then turns black.

We have re placed the main board and the power supply board and it is still doing the same thing. What do we need to check or do next?

Ok, does it have audio? If you have audio and no picture, you could have a backlight problem or a defective T-Con board.

I would think that the signal board would be more suspect than the hyper board for the symptoms you're describing. However I would recommend getting the service manual and doing some troubleshooting rather than just replacing circuit boards.

Resetting the TV

Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can saved time.
1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet for 3 - 4 hours.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

hope this may help;

The point is that with LCD TV (which are very different from computer repair) you often need testing before finding the fault. In this case you have replaced amost everything, the fault then is either the T-con, the main boardm (which are only parts with panel and chassis that you have not replaced), or one of the parts already replaced that had failed because of incorrect installation procedure.

Since it is very easy to fry a board, and since a technician diagnosed the inverter (I assume that they tested the TV), testing will start right from the inverter. The inverter is tested reading DC in from main board to master, dc from master to slave, and AC high voltage out from slave, which hosts the oscillator section that should also be tested using an oscilloscope.
Since the TV is in forced standby (protection because the fault is detected), in order to get DC to inverter from main, the control line to correspondent DC voltage from PSU must be activated. The inverter voltage is the higher DC line from PSU. This is activated jumping the control line with the 3.3 or 5V low DC from PSU. In this way both PSU and inverter get tested. The procedure is also a superficial test for some main board functonalities. This kind of test is done with live power and involves testing high voltage lines. For safety reasons the operation must be done by a trained person.

The alternative is once again taking a chance and replacing main and T-con, but as said, that is not a good way of repairing a 42'' TV.

Here parts for this TV.

If the door of the machine is opening you can follow the below reset procedure so that the machine will function properly but if the door in your machine is not opening you need to first get the door to open by following the procedure as stated in the link
Resting the unit will make sure that all the memory storage in the chip will be erased and hence the unit will be ready for a new cycle.
Reset Procedure
  1. Make sure that the machine is turned OFF.
  2. Make sure that the door is opening.
  3. Set the dryer & wash temperature knobs to the off position (12 o'clock / pointing vertically upwards)
  4. Make sure that the door is latched properly.
  5. Set the washer knob on the Red Reset position and switch on the power.
  6. You will observe that the mode + Door Lock light flickers rapidly for a few seconds and then flickers slowly.
  7. Once the light starts flickering slowly turn off the power.
  8. Set the washer knob to the Green Reset Position and switch on the power.
  9. You will observe that the mode + Door Lock light flickers rapidly for a few seconds and then flickers slowly.
  10. Once the light starts flickering slowly turn off the power.
  11. Set the washer knob to the Grey Reset Position and switch on the power.
  12. You will observe that the mode + Door Lock light flickers rapidly for a few seconds and then flickers slowly.
  13. Once the light starts flickering slowly turn off the power.
  14. Set the washer knob to the Reset Position on Delay Time and switch on the power.
  15. You will observe that the mode + Door Lock light flickers rapidly for a few seconds and then flickers slowly.
  16. Once the light starts flickering slowly turn off the power.
You have now reseted the unit and the unit should work fine now , in case you observe that the washer knob/Dial is going round and round all by itself now please go through the link for fault codes for further diagnosis.
Hope this procedure helps.

I have a Samsung hlr5667w when I turn it on the lamp lights but the screen is black with a dim flickering light behind it, there is no audio. The lamp will stay on for a couple of minutes then the set...

If you heard recently a high pitched sound or fan like sound it may be the color wheel--if it fails the set will detect that and shut set off.

If lamp comes on even for a few seconds it likely is good--ballast which drives lamp is possible but rare.

Monitor comes on for a few second flickers and goes black

This sounds like your back lights are going out or the power supply section has a problem.

If you turn the computer on then look at the edge of the screen if you see a ghost image then it would confirm the back light problem. That can be caused by several internal problems. You should check with a different monitor or try your monitor on a different machine to confirm the monitor is the problem. Check your warranty to see if you can get it replaced.
