Not sure if its a picture tube problem or convergence problem. TV was working fine, put a DVD on pause, came back 10 minutes later and poof! Distorded picture almost 3D like. Shut it off and when it came...

Check the micro fuses that power the convergence board, one or two maybe open, While doing this also resolder the flyback transfomer and area around it. Check for cold solder joints in this area as well.
Replace any open fuse with 5amp same type. If fuse are good then convergence power board is faulty and needs serviceing or replaced.

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.

Picture and sound gone

your fuses may have blown off.

open the back panel and check all the fuses. There are a bunch of fuses in there, my tv has 5 altogether.

I hope this is the problem.

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.
