Question about Toshiba Regza 52XF550U 52 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba Regza 52XF550U which I purchased in late 2008. Recently we ditched the satellite carrier and switched over to digital OTA programming. The tv was working great getting nice HD picture from the OTA signal. Later I was adding a splitter to the incoming cable from the antenna, and all of a sudden lost my ability to tune any channels, just fuzz like no signal. The splitter I was using was from the dish network and don't know if that caused the problem. It seems that the tuner board is no longer working. Can this be replaced and how difficult or expensive is it? All other inputs of the tv work, just cant tune ota. Thanks in advance for your help

Be sure that the setting in the TV is set to "AIR" NOT CABLE. After switching back, you'll probably have to re-scan. I'd bet that one of your connectors isn't crimped quite right. A single strand from the shield can kill the signal completely. If the center wire is too short or too long it can kill the signal. It should extend 1/16" to 1/8" beyond the threaded barrel part.

If you have lost sound on only one station and are using cable or an antenna directly to the TV. Look in the audio settings as most likely the SAP mode is turned on. If the TV detects a SAP signal even if there is no audio this is what you will end up with.

Change video source by pressing Input button and select TV, make sure antenna is connected in RF In jack in tv then go to Tuning menu and select Auto Tuning/ Auto Scan option, tv will tune and store all available channels in memory.
Let me know model number of tv if you have additional question.

This sounds like what may be causing it is the cable going from the tv to the receiver box. If it is only happening on the sat channels, you know that it's not the tv. I would replace the cable, if that does not work, then it may be that the receiver needs to be replaced.

Sound on one channel from over the air antenna has suddenly become garbled. All others are fine.


If only one channel is affected it is not a problem usually with the set--it does not know what channel you are on---look in audio menu and make sure if set has SAP it is not on.

Half screen is blurred


if as it appears a LCD and problem is half screen is "blurred" the set uses two (or one large) boards and each drives the picture on half the screen---could be one bad, poor connection or worst case defect in screen unit (display panel) which would be fatal.

Toshiba regza 52xf550u has a 6 inch multi colored line in the middle of the screen...what is the problem


If it flickers and changes colors like my 52" did, I removed the back panel cover, tore off the cheap foil on top and removed the t-con board. Used a head gun as I seem to fix alot of things with it now adays since lead free solder is cheap, heat the points up for about 2 minutes, replace it and throw some air circulation. I also noticed the top of my lcd has two main boards the are supposed to match up a platic pin and slide into place, the boards were warped and wouldn't stay down. I used a dremel polishing wheel, cut it in half and wedged them down and tv is running clean again.
