    I have the same problem. The image is flickering and appears mostly in very bright areas, such as the light glare from a person's face. Mine is a 42HP16

If half screen is affected it will be either a board (LCD and Plasma have different names) but in those one board drives each side of the screen unit--worst case is the display panel itself which is fatal from a cost point of view.

Flashing screen on Toshiba 42HP66

Plasma sets use high voltage to produce their displays and it sounds very much like the HV supply is losing (or has lost) regulation likely due to the impending failure of a semiconductor.Check to see if Toshiba has any extended warranty on this since it could be a series problem.If there is none, ask for a price on a new or repaired supply on an exchange basis.

No picture on dvd player but can hear sound

Usually this is a bad inverter. The best way to check this is to hold the unit up to a very bright light and see if there is a ghost of am image visible and moving, just not bright enough to be seen properly. This means that the display is working, but the flourescent display behind it is not being powered properly, and most LCD displays require a little inverter board to convert the native DC power to AC to light the backlight. inverter boards are cheap if you can find the proper one for your unit. Unfortunately some units have the inverter board integrated into the motherboard of the player, though that is rare. It should be a separate (and thus replacable) component. Good luck!

Toshiba notbook tecra s1 model no 831l-1104l -- No Display

If you see a very dim image or black screen or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
