Question about Emerson EWL20D6 Television

Open Question

Lcd tv turns off after a few minutes

I'm using a Regal 32" lcd tv as a second monitor for my Toshiba satellite L30 laptop, connected by vga cable. Everything worked great for about 6 weeks. Today, the tv simply turned itself off. I reconnected everyting and it was working again, but the tv shut off after a few minutes. I've gone through this process a few times and am exasperated. Please help!

SOURCE: LC32OEM9 says Not Supported Format on HDMI Input.

I'm thinking the Comcast DVR box maybe putting out weird HDMI signals and the TV can't translate it. I would call the Comcast people on this one.
In the meantime, I would try finding another source the uses a HDMI cable to rule out the TV as the problem. Basically, testing the TV to see if the problem still happens when you use something else than the Comcast box. Try a Blueray player, Playstation 3, or Xbox. Just something that uses a HDMI cable.

SOURCE: Tv shuts off after 6-8 seconds

capacitors in the power supply, they all should be replaced, before it takes out the rest of the ps. there are companies that rebuild them if your tech is not up on repairing them.

SOURCE: My 32 inch emerson powers up and cuts off after a few seconds.

Hi, I own the same TV and had the same problem. It's the #1 plaguing issue with flat panel TVs made by Funai corp. Emerson is made by them. Normally, when this happens, the TV goes into " Protection Mode " because of a failing circuit board.

The most common thing to go out on flat panel TV is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptom. I'm willing to bet you have the same problem like mine. One of six Inverter Transformers when bad on my Power/Backlight Inverter Supply Board. I replaced it and it works fine again. d66cb18.jpg

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.


2. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual at Tvtechcenter.com:
http://www.tvtechcenter.com/xcart/search.php?mode=search&page=1 It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $6. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

http://www.encompassparts.com/products/?LTZ2PC0MS008

3. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.

SOURCE: Tv turns off a second after I turn it on

Just repaired this actual model.
remove the back of the tv. Loof at the circuit board on the left as you face the back of the tv. In the middle there is a diode that burns out. Remove all ov the screws holding this circuit board to the tv. Carefully unplug all of the connections and flip the board over. See that the number on the back side of the board by the burnt diode is d1940. Have the diode replaced by a competent repairman and oberve polarity. put everthing back as you found it and try the tv. You may want to have a fire extiguisher nearby.

Three strips that are irregularly shaped? Look like glass that has cracked?
'Jagged edges'?

LCD screen is broken.

Three even strips indicates to me, that there may be a problem with the Video Cable. Then the screen Inverter is next in the diagnoses.
My money is on the Video Cable.

ALL power removed, Anti-Static Precautions FOLLOWED, I would check out the graphics chipset first.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port on the laptop.
Left rear side. This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector. (VGA port on a laptop ),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

(Color of connector does Not matter. It is generally Blue, though)

You can use a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.

There are at least 3 display options available;
1) Laptop internal monitor ONLY
2) Laptop internal monitor AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the F5 key. (The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key)

No display on external VGA monitor?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F5 key.

Is the display on the external VGA monitor, the same as the internal monitor of the laptop?

Problem is the graphics chipset.

Display is fine on the external VGA monitor?
Problem is the Video Cable, screen Inverter, or LCD screen.

Video Cable:

A) http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-A105/big/Toshiba-Satellite-A105-14.jpg

Switch Cover removed, Keyboard removed. Shows you where the Video Cable plugs into the motherboard.

B) http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-A105/big/Toshiba-Satellite-A105-21.jpg

Palm Rest Cover you can see the white rectangular connector, for the motherboard side of the Video Cable, at the top left.
It's above the black cable, and near the screw hole.

The Video Cable leads from the motherboard, up through the left Hinge, and into the Display Assembly.
From there it connects to the screen Inverter, and back of the LCD screen.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-Satellite-A105-6017B0050801-LCD-Video-Cable-Genuine-OEM-Laptop-TESTED-/290754851160?forcev4exp=true&forceRpt=true

In the photo, (You can hover your mouse cursor on it to enlarge), the right side connector plugs into the back of the LCD screen.

The black connector to the far left connects to the motherboard.
The small white connector at the top with the Red, Green, Black, etc wires, connects to the screen Inverter.

(The small Black cable, that comes out from the black motherboard connector, is a Ground wire )

Due to the close proximity of the Video Cable to the left Hinge, it can be pulled on from just normal opening, and closing of the laptop over time.

This means the Video Cable connection on the motherboard side could be loose, or the LCD screen side, or both.

The diagnoses is to PHYSICALLY check BOTH connections. A loose connection at the motherboard, or at the back of the LCD screen could be so small in distance, that you will not see it with the human eye.

Could also result in damage to the Video Cable.
View the Video Cable with the Switch Cover removed, and see if there are any obvious signs of damage to the sheath of the cable.

If there is there could be damage to the tiny wires inside the Video Cable. (Stretched/Broken)

Use a multimeter set to OHMs, to check all wires inside the Video Cable for continuity, or have a 'Mom and Pop' computer store check it for a few bucks, or replace the Video Cable.

Video cable connections are tight? Video cable continuity check checks out OK?
Screen Inverter.

The test for a screen Inverter is to use a sensitive multimeter.
Read fairly expensive.

http://www.fonerbooks.com/test.htm

Not having access to a sensitive multimeter that you can use, means just replacing the screen Inverter. Seems like 'part changing', and it is, but you have to work with what you've got.

http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,A105,Laptop,Inverters.aspx

Find THE model number for your laptop, and the correct screen Inverter. A screen Inverter, and an LCD screen are a MATCHED unit.

Screen Inverter is checked out to be OK, or replaced, and symptoms are still the same, the problem is the LCD screen.

Remember, the first part of the diagnoses was to see if the divided parts were EVEN going across, or jagged and irregularly shaped.

Jagged in shape, and not even strips going across, means cracks in the LCD screen.
Replace.

Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 white screen on stat up


Don't assume. Diagnose.

Problem could be graphics chipset, Video Cable, screen Inverter, or LCD screen.

Graphics chipset:

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the laptop.
(Back of laptop - Blue)

Example of a VGA Cable, and a VGA connector, (Port on laptop),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

If you have a CRT type of monitor (Looks like a small TV), you can use it, or a flat LCD screen monitor with a VGA cable.

The Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 Notebook PC, also has a DVI connector on the back of the laptop. (Next to the blue VGA port)
You can connect a flat LCD screen monitor with a DVI cable.

Example of a DVI Cable, and DVI connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By factory default the display should be on the external monitor.

If not;
Press, and hold down on the Fn key, (Bottom left), and tap once on the F5 key.
The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.

You will see a list. It 'hot cycles' through the list, until you come to the external monitor device you are using.

http://shop.mcccomputers.com/network-modem-cards/6037-toshiba-satellite-p100-p105-p105-s6104-p105-s9722-video-board-256mb-ts15082.html

External monitor display shows no white screen?
Your graphics chipset is good.
Go on with the diagnoses.

Problem is with the Video Cable, or in the Display Assembly.
(Screen Inverter or LCD screen)

Video Cable:
The Video Cable attaches to the motherboard under the Switch Cover, and about at the F2 and F3 keys.
It then routes under the left Hinge, and up into the Display Assembly.

From there it connects to the screen Inverter, and back of LCD screen,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-p105/big/toshiba-satellite-p105-11.jpg


From;

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-p105/take-apart-1.htm

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-P105-P100/remove-lcd-screen-inverter-1.htm

Due to normal opening, and closing of the laptop, the Video Cable may become pinched, and pulled on.
This can lead to a simple loose connection of the Video Cable TO the motherboard, or TO the back of the LCD screen.

(The screen Inverter connection should also be checked)

Visual inspection will NOT do. You need to physically see if you can plug the motherboard connection, and LCD screen connection in.
It could be just loose enough you won't be able to see it, but will affect the display.

Sheath of Video Cable needs to be visually inspected for signs of damage. Signs of damage to the sheath, may also mean damage to the tiny wires inside the sheath of the Video Cable.
(Stretched/Broken)

Assurance that the Video Cable is not the problem, means checking out, or have checked out, with a multimeter set to OHM's, to run a continuity check of all the wires.
('Mom and Pop' computer store. See if they will check it)

Or simply replace the Video Cable. (After you fire up the laptop, and see if loose connections was, or was not the problem)

http://www.batterysupport.com/toshiba-satellite-p105-s9722-cable-p-377633.html


(Left side connects to LCD screen. Right/Top connector goes to motherboard. Right/Bottom connector goes to screen Inverter)

Video Cable checks out OK?
Go on to screen Inverter.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/TOSHIBA-Satellite-P105-S9722-laptop-lcd-Screen-Inverter-/250759700669


The plastic thin frame in front of the LCD screen, is the Display Bezel.
The screen Inverter is behind the Display Bezel, and mounted at a location towards the bottom of the LCD screen frame.

A screen Inverter is tested with a sensitive multimeter. Read fairly expensive,

http://www.fonerbooks.com/test.htm

It is for this reason that those who do not have access to a sensitive multimeter, usually just replace the screen Inverter.
(Also low cost, and ease of access to replace)

Screen Inverter checks out OK?
Problem is the LCD screen,

[ Bet it's the video cable, or screen Inverter, that is the problem ]

[ Primer:
An LCD screen cannot produce light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, (Or two of them), or a series of LED's.
(Light Emitting Diode)

The Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 Notebook PC, uses One CCFL for a Backlight.

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

Average thickness is 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
Average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height,

General example,

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/12/09/replace-laptop-backlight-ccfl-lamp/

A CCFL contains -> Mercury, just like Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses.

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.
90 Percent of the Time the fault is a bad screen Inverter.

Video on my toshiba L455=s5009 comes on for a few seconds then blacks out


From your brief diagnoses stated, it sounds like a bad Video Cable.

The Video Cable routes from the motherboard, across one edge of the Fan Assembly, and under the left Hinge assembly,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-Pro-L450-L455/big-body/laptop-disassembly-19.jpg

With just the usual opening, and closing of the laptop, the Video Cable's sheath may be damaged. This means the tiny wires inside the sheath may be damaged.
(Stretched/Broken)

http://www.laptoprepairparts.com/html/details.asp?ref=1860&category=cables

Or it may be the screen Inverter that is damaged, or going out,

http://mcccomputers.com/shop/lcd-inverters/3666-new-toshiba-satellite-l455-s5009-l455-s5045-lcd-inverter-pk070006t20-k000087330.html

Or the LCD screen assembly.

Could be the graphics chipset.

Diagnose.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect an external VGA monitor to the laptop's VGA connector, on the back of the laptop.

[ RBG (Monitor) port ]

You can use a CRT monitor (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable, for the external VGA monitor.

[ Example of a VGA cable, and a VGA port (Connector),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector ]

Turn the external VGA monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.

By default the external monitor should show the display, also.
IF not;
1) Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and simultaneously tap on the F5 key. (The F5 key is the Display toggle-over key)

Not showing on the external VGA monitor? Perform the above procedure again.
There are several display options.

External VGA monitor also show the same symptoms?
Bad graphics chipset. Replacing the motherboard is the most cost effective method, and easiest method.

External VGA monitor does Not show these symptoms?
Problem is the Video Cable, or screen Inverter, or LCD screen.

Due to movement of the LCD screen, which means movement of the Video Cable, my money is on a bad Video Cable.

(A Video Cable can be unplugged partially, real easy, on the back of the LCD screen.
It MAY look plugged in tightly, but may not be.

It can also be unplugged real easy when assembling the Display Assembly, to reinstall back on the laptop )

Check the Video Cable's wires with a multimeter. Perform a continuity check of all wires in the cable. (Multimeter set to Ohms)

Have an assistant also gently wiggle the cable, as you are testing. See if there is an intermittent break, due to a stretched/broken wire.

Or just buy a replacement Video Cable, and use it.

Jeff, connect an external monitor for a diagnostic test.

Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port on the back of the laptop,
(RGB/Monitor connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector )

The external/VGA monitor can be a CRT type (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen that has a VGA cable.

Turn the external monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.

By default the display should show on the external monitor. If not press, and hold down on the Fn key, and tap the F5 key. (One of the Hot Key's)

If the display still does not show, hold down on the Fn key, and tap the F5 key again.
There are three display options;

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external monitor
3) External monitor ONLY

If graphics show on the external monitor, you have a problem in the Display Assembly, and/or the Video Cable.

If graphics do Not show on the external monitor, you have a problem with the graphics chipset on the motherboard.
(ATI Radeon 3100)

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-Pro-L450-L455/laptop-disassembly-1.htm

Video Cable
1) Could be the connections. The connection of the video cable TO the motherboard, and the other end of the video cable TO the back of the LCD screen. (In the Display Assembly)

2) Could be damage to the video cable. Check the sheath of the cable for obvious signs of damage. If so, the thin tiny wires inside may be damaged also.

Cable should be checked for continuity of each wire in the cable. (Ohm's with a multimeter)

Video Cable condition, and tightness of connections check out, it's on to the screen Inverter.

Primer:
An LCD screen does not produce light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.

The Toshiba Satellite L455D-S5976 Notebook PC, uses 1 single CCFL for a Backlight.

Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power (Electricity) from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and Backlight.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is the Inverter.

The screen Inverter is a small rectangular circuit board, and is located behind the Display Bezel, an at the bottom of the LCD screen,

I have a satellite l305d-s5895, I broke the LCD so I can't see anything durning start up. When it broke i could see the colors of windows, first time I powered it on the the LCD would just flash then...


1) I would suggest you disconnect the video cable from the laptop (Motherboard) to the LCD screen, and the Inverter cables in the Display Assembly.

2) Then attach a VGA monitor to the VGA connector on the back of the laptop, so you can see what is going on.
(Laptop off, monitor off, attach the monitor)

I'm going to just assume damage to the LCD screen itself, and not possible damage to the entire laptop, since you just indicate a broken LCD screen.

If the laptop was closed during being damaged, the problem may lay deeper than just the LCD screen.

(For one example; If the laptop was closed, and damage occurred to the body of the laptop, the cooling fan assembly may be damaged, and the fan isn't spinning.

The Processor, and the GPU, need air to cool them. They operate within a certain specific temperature range.
Too hot and BIOS turns the Processor off. {No Processor operating, no computer)

If the LCD screen was damaged towards the bottom, damage may have occurred to the Inverter, also.

To disconnect the video cable from the motherboard:

1) Remove ALL power to the laptop. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.
Work on a table.

2) Observe Anti-Static Precautions

3) Follow Steps 1 through 7 on this page, {Page 1}
(You can click on the photos in the steps, one at a time, to enlarge them),

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L305-L305D/remove-screen-replace-video-cable-1.htm

4) Follow Steps 8 through 14 on this page, {Page 2}

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L305-L305D/remove-screen-replace-video-cable-2.htm

Follow Step 15 on this page {Page 3},

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L305-L305D/remove-screen-replace-video-cable-3.htm

You have to remove the Keyboard Bezel, then the Keyboard, then the Top Cover.
(Palm Rest Cover actually. Top Cover is Toshiba's nomenclature), to access the video cable's connector on the motherboard.

You have to remove the Display Bezel to access the Inverter.

The video cable's connector on the motherboard, is shown more clearly in Step 20 on this page {Page 3},

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L305-L305D/remove-screen-replace-video-cable-3.htm


For more clarity here is a link to a free Service manual, for the Satellite L305D series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Scroll down with your eyes to the second Satellite heading. The one that begins with Satellite A10.
Go to the second line in this 'paragraph', and left-click right on - L305D

This is a PDF file. (The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files)
After you click on the file name, (L305D) it may take up to 30 seconds for the first page to come up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

I would use the Zoom Out icon in top header of the PDF file, to reduce the view size to 100 percent.
( It's the Minus { - } symbol )

Go to Page 176. (4.12 Display Mask)

In the top header of the PDF file is the page number box. It is to the right of the Down Arrow.

You can use the Down Arrow to go to Page 176, or;

1) Left-click once in the page number box
2) Type 176
3) Press the Enter key

With the video cable disconnected from the motherboard, and the Inverter cables disconnected from it (Inverter), and the VGA monitor connected to the laptop;
Install the Battery, THEN plug in the AC adapter. Plug the AC adapter into power.

A) Turn the VGA monitor on. Let it warm up until graphics show.
B) Turn the laptop on.

If the graphics from the laptop is Not displayed automatically when the laptop turns on;

Press, and hold down on the Fn key, tap the F5 key.

There are three possible displays available;

1) The laptop's LCD screen only.

2) The laptop's LCD screen AND an external monitor. (VGA monitor)

3) The external monitor only. (VGA monitor)

Tap until ONLY the VGA monitor is on.

{VGA monitor. Looks like a small TV. It is a CRT.
You can also use an LCD flat screen if it has a VGA connection, and a VGA cable.

VGA connector on laptop. Believe it is on the Right to the very front.
Don't know as I do not have a Satellite L305D-S5985 Notebook PC in front of me, and the User Guide on Toshiba eSupport is unclear.
Doesn't show the sides, top, and bottom of the laptop.

This shows you what a VGA connector looks like more clearly,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SVGA_port.jpg

Good graphics on external (VGA) monitor?
Shut the laptop down normally.
Remove all power.

Connect the cables to the Inverter again. (NOT the video cable)
Reinstall the Battery, and AC adapter.

(Caution: It is NOT a good idea to have the AC adapter plugged into power, when disconnecting, or connecting to the laptop. You could get a voltage spike, and fry the AC adapter, laptop, or both)

Turn the laptop on.
Still good graphics?
Suggest you replace the LCD screen.

When obtaining an LCD screen, check the LCD screen's manufacturer code on the back of the LCD screen. Match it up to what the replacement LCD screen website indicates is a match.

Has to be a compatible LCD screen. The Inverter, and LCD screen are a matched set. They are both matched to the laptop.

http://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/Toshiba/SATELLITE~L305D-S5895/

It would be best to buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap. Connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source. For an example, I connect to an unpainted surface of the metal frame, of an empty desktop computer case.
Average cost of an ESD wrist strap is around $3 to $5.

Cheap insurance to keep from static shocking your laptop, and have an expensive paperweight.

Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove. Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.
If a multi-compartment container is not available, substitute with a clean egg carton.
Label each egg holder.

Some screws look VERY similar to others. DO NOT mix them up.
(For one, a wrong screw could screw in halfway, then be stuck.
Won't go in any further, and if you try to take it out it may twist off.
Not to mention what a longer screw than needed, may do for damage in the wrong hole)

What do I need and how do I connect my Toshiba L305 model PSLB8 050302f to my hdtv to view online tv?


I dont believe that laptop has an HDMI port on it. If you have an LCD TV then your TV may have a VGA or DVI input on it. You can connect your laptop to the TV by using a VGA to VGA or VGA to DVI cable. If you your TV doesn't have one of these input ports, then you're not going to get your laptop connected to your TV.

Connect TOSHIBA SATELLITE A205-S5855 Laptop to TOSHIBA 40H80 TV


You can use the VGA cable which has 15 pins at both ends. For sound, you will need mini stereo phone plug at both ends.
You will have to use the combo key Fn and either F5, 6, or 7 to select the internal, external, both.
Make sure to set the video resolution to the native resolution of this TV otherwise you will get 'Format nor supported' on the screen.
