Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

Television will not turn on consistently

We have a Toshiba TV (let me know if you need the model # - it's only about 6 yr old). Every once in a while it will not turn on unless you unplug the set, wait about 5 seconds, and then plug it back in. We've had a repairman out to look at it, but he couldn't figure out why this occurs. This has been going on now for about 3 yr. We have resorted to plugging the TV into a power strip which we turn on & off in place of unplugging the TV. Have you heard of something like this before & if so, is it fixable?

Re: Television will not turn on consistently


There are far better experts from this site who would know more if you can post back specific model no or preferably the Chassis no. of your Toshiba.

Just to start the ball rolling, to my knowledge, most models of CTVs since a few years back uses an internal mini computer. Like any computer it does need to be reset and in your case, unplugging (actually for a few hours) performs a hard reset . For a few minutes is a soft reset.

At times, the standby led or power led would also flash a certain sequence to indicate if there is an internal fault detected by the protection circuitry. By unplugging, you did a reset on the protection circuitry and if your problem is intermittent or develops over a period of viewing time (chances are heat related problem), then the protect will auto activate and will not allow power on the next time (if the unit is plug).

Hope that this be of some initial help/idea. Please post back and I'm sure others would be offering detailed assistance thereafter.

Good luck and kind regards.

I have a 10 yr old Sony FD Trinitron WEGA 32" Flat

Hello jorge and welcome to FixYa. With your particular model of television six blinks mean a Horizontal Drive Failure has occurred. If you have any television repair experience you could try checking the jungle for loose or possibly bad soldering. In some case the jungle IC was found to be defective on this model as well. You should also inspect the horizontal drive transformer windings if at all possible. If you are unable to repair this yourself I would personally say to you no it is not worth the cost to repair it as purchasing a new television would probaly be a more prudent decision. I hope you found this helpful and thank you for visiting FixYa.

Programming remote to toshiba Tv

Depending on the universal remote you can usually program the remote without knowing the codes. One way is to turn on the television, then follow the basic programming instructions for the remote, but instead of entering a code, hit the power button over and over again until the television turns off.
I hope this helps.

Hey Wilt: We had the same problem, for the same model of Toshiba TV. Had it repaired yesterday. Turns out the problem was the power supply (P.C.B). The total cost was $192.66 Canadian funds (taxes and labour all in). Our model was 6 years old, buts its playing like a brand new unit now. Hope this helped ...... Good luck
