Question about Samsung PCJ522R 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV won't turn on, red light is on. Tried unpluuging, tried menu for 8 seconds

Hi. I love my tv but throughout the years the tv would shut itself off. While it was under warranty they would come and fix it then a couple of weeks later it would start again. I can't afford a new tc but I am real tech savy if someone can help me diagnose this. I can do voltage tests or whatever, just guide me away from getting shocked... haha. The tv has been working flawlessly except for the on and off thing. Last night we shut it off and this morning it wouldn't turn on. Please help, Thank you. Rick

Code 22 indicates that your set is in shut down due to what is called Short Protect. The most likely cause is the Converge Ic's drawing too much current and opening one or 2 fuses. Normal repair cost varies by area and servicer. Expect 250 to 350 plus the service call. I normally do this on site.

No video, shuts off then back on

I checked Toshiba's website and found the manual for the set. The self restarting was indicitive of a lamp failure. The red light was solid while the green light blinked. It would then restart 8 times before both lights would then begin blinking.

Shuts down automatically with red light

Push device and Menu in on the front panel together and hold for 8 seconds and see if the led blinks a two digit code. As it may be the lamp or quite possibly the Power PWB capacitors if it blink a 3 4 code.

Toshiba TP55H60 power down after start up

Try the following
1-unplug tv
2-remove bottom cover on tv
3-tap the power supply frame a few times (where the power cord enters the tv)
I had the blinking red light on my tv. I tried other solutions like removing the red wire a few times etc. Tapping the power supply frame solve the problem.
