The picture went out on my TV

This is not a user repairable issue and would require a TV repair shop. You may want to consider a new flat screen TV before spending the money on repairs.

LG 32LH30 LCD TV Problem

IMO Seriously for $119 it's not worth it.
However, it does sound like a capacitor problem
If you are "Serious" about fixing I'd find a TV repair Forum.
Else I'd go here and get a new one.
Best Wishes.

You can be watching suddenly the picture goes out but a very narrow line across the middle. It still has sound.

The vertical deflection unit is faulty. The tv must be repaired by a professional.

Problem with tv

The problem is sometimes caused by the vertical output integrated circuit (IC) failing, but usually it's bad solder connections. If you or someone you know is comfortable with electronic soldering, a few minutes spent resoldering the IC pins to the circuit board will often solve the problem. Failure of these connections is common because the IC gets quite hot (and it's mounted on a metal heat sink). The heating and cooling cycles cause the solder joints on the circuit board to crack. You can usually see the trouble with light and a magnifying glass; gray grainy joints instead of shiny connections, and often visible ring cracks around the pins.

My TV Doesn't have any picture???

This is what is known as frame collapse - which means there is no vertical deflection applied to the tube.

Please do not continue to watch the set in this condition as it may burn a horizontal line in the middle of the screen.

The most likely cause is either bad solder connections to or failure of the frame vertical output IC.

Please rate the assistance I have given - I hope it is useful. If you call a serviceman and tell him its frame collapse as this type of repair is not for amateurs - voltages in television receivers can kill.

Problem with tv

Could be a horizontal output fault, faulty power supply, a simple dry solder joint or HVT. If you can hear arcing or smell an ozone odour, it will be the HVT which may cost a bit.

Without knowing the actual cause, it's impossible to say how much it would cost to fix it.... could be anywhere from $50 to $250 etc

Best to have it checked by a technician and get a quote to repair... then decide if you think it's worth it.

Toshiba is generally a reliable brand, so if you were happy with the picture quality before the fault occurred, it's probably worth repairing.
