Toshiba LCD Colour TV (Model 15VL63B)

Hello, we own a Toshiba LCD Colour TV (Model 15VL63B). When we initially switch on the TV, the screen breifly comes to life (for no more than 1 second) before returning to a blank, black screen. The audio if fine, but the screen does not display any picture. The unit has not been dropped or intefered with and has been working ok since we purchased it earlier in the year. Any help you can give me to resolve this problem would be much appreciated. Thanks

Re: Toshiba LCD Colour TV (Model 15VL63B)

We have the same problem.
After the initial cold start [from fully OFF] we found that we could leave the TV unit on whilst playing the SOUND>>> A few minutes later PRESS the RED Button on the REMOTE to put the TV unit in STANDBY and then press a NUMBER key HEY PRESTO!!! some how it has managed to warm the unit up enough to allow the LCD screen to burst into life. HOOOOORAYYYY!!

I have a Toshiba Regza 32lv 703G lcd tv. I switched it on and I have lost my colour. It only displays in black and white although the menu screen is till displaying in colour. Kindly advise. Thanks!

It is pretty much junk, sorry to say it but your picture tube went out and it is cheaper to buy a new t.v. My grandpa use to fix them for us for free but he passed:( If you call some where see how much they would charge for a picture tube, I bet it's expensive???

I Bought Toshiba LCD TV Model 32A3000E 3 years ago, now when we switch on for approx 2hours the LCD screen distorted with green and red colour and getting worse. The next day it is ok again and here goes...

If the tv tend to operate when it gets warm this cause a thermal intermittent problem, common cause is the cold solder or loosed connection try to check the main pcb or the power supply solder side of the board then try to observe if there is cold solder or slight cracked to the lead try to solder that part. Note before opening or removing the back cover of your tv, be sure to unplug it first to avoid serious injury. Or try contact a service repairman to do it for you to lessen the stress. good day hope this may help.

Audio OK, NO VIDEO...Toshiba 32hl67u

I just had a technician call Toshiba about this exact problem. The response from Toshiba was that this was a major issue they were having with that particular is the main board which needs to be replaced...the cost? $260 for the part plus $130 labor plus some other fee...making purchasing a brand new TV at about the same cost. I had emailed Toshiba and their solution response was to unplug it and wait an hour. Shame on Toshiba for being aware of this issue and still selling the very least, they should have sent purchasers a recall notification or offered to pay for part of the repair. I am dumping this Toshiba and going to the LG. So there is the solution. Get another TV
