The point is that with LCD TV (which are very different from computer repair) you often need testing before finding the fault. In this case you have replaced amost everything, the fault then is either the T-con, the main boardm (which are only parts with panel and chassis that you have not replaced), or one of the parts already replaced that had failed because of incorrect installation procedure.

Since it is very easy to fry a board, and since a technician diagnosed the inverter (I assume that they tested the TV), testing will start right from the inverter. The inverter is tested reading DC in from main board to master, dc from master to slave, and AC high voltage out from slave, which hosts the oscillator section that should also be tested using an oscilloscope.
Since the TV is in forced standby (protection because the fault is detected), in order to get DC to inverter from main, the control line to correspondent DC voltage from PSU must be activated. The inverter voltage is the higher DC line from PSU. This is activated jumping the control line with the 3.3 or 5V low DC from PSU. In this way both PSU and inverter get tested. The procedure is also a superficial test for some main board functonalities. This kind of test is done with live power and involves testing high voltage lines. For safety reasons the operation must be done by a trained person.

The alternative is once again taking a chance and replacing main and T-con, but as said, that is not a good way of repairing a 42'' TV.

Here parts for this TV.

TV won't turn on?

LEDs are notorious about overheating and ruining the thermal capacitor... it round and is soldered onto the main circuit board. Easy to replace yourself..just obtain the correct part and go easy on the solder using a 25 watt soldering iron... don't use a high powered solder gun of it's toast!

Toshiba 32c100u dead; power supply board replaced but still nothing

Have you checked whether mains power reaches the power board? Check it first. If yes, the power board you purchased newly should be checked.

Toshiba 42wh38b Projection TV won't come out of standby

That problem is usually have 2 causes..Its either power supply board or main board..

Please take this steps on how to determine the problem:
1. Open the back cover.
2. Check the power supply output...It should have 5vdc for the main board..12vdc or 16vdc for the audio and 24vdc for the back-light inverter..
3. If those 3 voltage supplies have encountered voltage drop...The problem could be on power supply board..
4. If the power supply output is normal..The problem could be on the main board...
5. If the problem is power supply you should check if the capacitors are bulged on the top and try to replaced it..If you can't do that you can purchased new power supply board..
6. If the problem is on main board there is no D.I.Y repair on that so you need to buy a new main board that fits to your TV..
Hope this solution will be helpful..

Thanks for using fixya...

Plug in tv hear some clicks but nothing else

If more than one click----main power relay is turning on and then off.

Indicates a problem in main power supply---either the supply or something connected to it is pulling it down.

Suggests problem is on Secondary side of power supply.

My Toshiba 55SL417U will not come on. The led light blinks, but screen remains black. It is no longer under warranty. Is there something I could do to fix it?

The main board of your TV should be troubleshooted. It is a very skilled work, and you must have sufficiant knoledge in electronics and expereince to work with digital printed circuit boards. In most cases, the repair to this board will be immpossible, and may replace it as card basis.
