Question about Toshiba TE55T11 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV turns off after lightning strike

I have a Toshiba TE50T11 (chassis TAC9955) rear projection TV that was struck by lightning. When I try to turn it on, you hear a click, and then the front LED blinks red. Once I got the set to turn on for a few seconds, and there was perfect sound, and a good picture, except that red was the only color in the picture. I have inspected all of the boards and there is no apparent burning or exploding of any of the components.

Tv struck by lightning

You wont be able to fix the TV your self as the power circuit board may have blown - consult a qualified repair man. Buying a surge protector for your expensive electronic goods is highly recommended.

Have a Toshiba MW24F11 combo tv. Near lightning strike through surge suppressor. Will not turn on. 6.3 amp fuse blown; replace, blew again. Next step, or start looking for replacement. Set is 25...

power surges generally damage diodes and capacitors causing the fuse to blow, any reputable tv shop can repair for a fraction of replacing this set.

Toshiba TE50T11 Chasis TAC9955 won't turn on.

Based on the fact that when you remove the back and press on things making the set work for a while I would say that you have bad (cracked or cold) solder joints. If you can solder, disconnect power, remove the board (the one you normally have to press) and solder all the connections or at least any feed throughs, major power componnents and anything suspicious looking under magnification. If you can not solder you will need a reputable shop to look at it. Cost should not exceed $125 US. Good Luck.
