Some common causes are:

A component is failing and it is thermo sensitive. As it warms up it starts to work in spec, and thus the set can start up. Most of the time this type of component can be in the scan amplifiers or in the power supply.

The CRT is going weak. When its emission level is below a specific value according to the design of the set, the uPC sends a command to not allow the high voltage to start up, or it is not allowing the the electron-guns to be biased on. As the heater in the CRT warms up, the electron-gun becomes in to proper spec, and thus the uPC allows operation.

Eventualy the set will no longer start up, or what ever is failing will fail completely.

You can take the set in for a service estimate, but personaly I would be shopping for a new set.

Toshiba regza 32hl67 losing its' picture and motion is slow

I have a toshiba regza 32hl67 LCD tv which is only 2 1/2 years old. The picture on this unit just started to go the other day (screen darkens but images are still visible and the motion/movement is very slow). I contacted Toshiba and they just said to unplug the tv for 3 minutes to reset the tv. This doesnt work. I am VERY upset with Toshiba, after paying $800 for a tv that only lasted 2 1/2 years. If anyone has had similar issues and know how to fix it, please let me know. Thanks

Toshiba 43VH9UA Rear projection

When was the unit repaired last? If it is doing the same thing and is only 5 years old, it sound like a bigger problem than just what was repaired. I own a 56" projection TV and mine is 6 years old and I have yet to have a problem with it...(I shouldn't have said that...) If I were you, I'd call Toshiba and explain the situation and that it has been repaired once already under warranty. Chances are, they'll be able to help you to your satisfaction. I once purchased a JVC stereo receiver from Circuit City and had to take it in to be repaired 5 times and the warranty had expired after my second trip up there, but they were nice enough to repair it - free of charge - the other 3 times. Toshiba seems to be a company that stands behind their product. Good luck! Hope this was helpful...

Picture is gone! :*(

the picture tube (what makes the TV picture work) has blown out. Just call you nearest tv reapair shop and purchase a new one. (these are kind of expensive!)

(Also, if it's fifteen years old, i think it's time to get a new T.V. hint. hint.)

Tv turns on but takes about 20 minutes to show the picture

This is the picture tube. If you check shops you can find one that has a picture tube restorer. If they run just the cleaning process it will buy you some time. This is good some times for up to a year

Picture disappearance & tv turns off

It sure sounds like you have a classic case of bad solder joints. Resolder all the connections on all boards.
