Question about Toshiba 32AFX61 32" TV

1 Answer

Screen goes green with lines then shut off

Please Help...I have a Toshiba 32AFX61 TV that's about 5 years old. A couple months ago it started shutting off by itself and the power light would be blinking. Read some post here and tried unplugging and plugging back in. This worked for a while but it has steadily gotten worse, doing it more frequently. Sometimes it would stay back on for hours, and other times would shut back off after only a few minutes. Now when I go through the unplug/plug in routine it just comes on with the entire screen a lime green with squiggly lines then shuts off right away, power light blinking. Could this be the power supply gone bad? Or something more serious and I not even bother with trying to have repaired. I don't plan on trying to fix myself. Sorry for the long post. Thanks in advance for your consideration.

The power comes on and then turns off and the front green power light blinks.

There is a small IC in the power supply section,
not the IC regulator that's the problem.

The TV started turning itself off occasionally a

Most likley what it could be is an interferance in the TV. Modern TV's have a feature that will shut itself off when it is not receving a picture. For instance, after so many minutes of "snow" it will shut off.sometimes this can make the TV think there is no signal at shut itself off.Anyway, I suspect its an interferance issue. Perhaps moving the TV further from the source of the interferance might help.

Green picture with horizontal green lines...


First, Id like to know how old is your unit? Also, the lines indicates in issue with regards to the lifespan of your tube. The dominant green color has something to do with a malfunctioning ray gun of your tube. However, i had encounter a unit that was resolved by simply resoldering the circuitry of same problem.
Why dont you try to resolder the board first.

Response is highly appreciated.
