No picture We just got this Tv from a friend and it turns on but i have no picture we opened the back to check the fuses but they look fine. Just thought i'd ask and see if you could help. The person we got it from said it worked great but then after they moved and took it off the truck it stoped working. I"m not sure if the bulbs ar gone or not. i'm not sure what to look for when it comes to making sure they are still god.

43FDX15B No picture, Power light stays on

Just a thought, but check all of the pico fuses for a blown fuse. The pico fuses look like a small yellow resistor. Some Hitachi's are famous for having a blown hi-volt ceramic capacitor and a blown pico fuse.
I think the red led on is a short protect indicator, but I could be mistaken.

Mitsubishi rear projection tv

Good Day, xraykid;
The problem with the TV is that it's mad at you for selling it to another family and now it's only sad once the TV came home. What you need to do is to talk to it for several weeks..............

Just joking, but the problem with the TV according to garth is:
SHUTDOWN AT POWER Cause #1 This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the input and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source) 1. SHUTDOWN AT POWER WITH SELF DIAGNOSIS ERROR 2 2. CHECK FOR LEAKY C9A60 470 PF 1000 V PART # 154P400030, PARALLEL TO D9A57 ON THE POWER PCB (NOT SHOWN IN THE SCHEMATIC). 2. SHUTDOWN AT POWER WITH SELF DIAGNOSIS ERROR 2 2. CHECK FOR OPEN FUSES F9A04 AND F9A05 PART # 283P043090 ON THE +24 AND -24 VOLT LINES. IF THE FUSES ARE OPEN THE CONVERGENCE OUTPUT CIRCUIT WOULD BE SUSPECT. 3. SELF-DIAGNOSIS INDICATES SHORT PROTECT. CHECK FOR A SHORTED IC4B01 PART # 270P261020 (VERTICAL OUTPUT) LOADING 24-VOLT SUPPLY LINE. LOCATED ON THE MAIN PCB. The real problem may be fluid from the crt's, picture tubes, look for fluid on the PCB towards the front of chassis.
Good Luck, big IRISH, e me first, then will help via phone,, Iwant to help you , that happened to me b4.

RCA Model P46924 I screwed up

Check connections at the HV distribution box (where the leads from the flyback connect to) and make sure all of these are in solid first. It sounds like a device is burnt open, since the over- current protection is not activated. This would allow the TV to still turn on, but with no picture. Of course you had installed a fuse too large, so that could explain that too- don't do this, you might have made the problem worse by burning out more components. Could be a bad horizontal deflection transistor or flyback transformer. Transistor p/n 2SC5148, flyback 239111 for this model, RCA P46924. You can find them on ebay for cheap.

Turns on but not picture or sound. Power LED blinks

Your set might not be producing the high voltage it needs to light up the screen , it might be missing the supply voltage the supply volts to the output transistor ,if this voltage is missing is because the transistor is likely bad(shorted) and it has opened a fuse or a safety resistor.If you are familiar with tv service you have a place to check but you are not too familiar be safe and call a professional,high volts circuits are dangerous.

Toshiba tz50v51 popping sound

Possible problems: * The TV set may be unplugged. * A fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or switched off. * The remote control unit (RCU) may be disabled. Solutions: * Make sure the TV/VCR are plugged in and the wall switch is on. * Check the fuse or circuit breaker. Test the outlet with a lamp. * Replace the RCU's batteries: if this fails exchange the unit.
