Re: toshiba tv

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.

I sorry to say I think you have a component failing that is related to heat. 15 years is a long time and if the TV was used in hpot conditions over the years it may well be the proble, or it's just old.

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.
