Question about Toshiba 26DF56 26" TV

1 Answer

TV turns on, but the only thing on the screen is Please Wait Thank you for your patience.

I have turned it on and off many times hoping it would get better. I even unpluged the TV for a few hours. I have also checked all the connections.

    I ave the Tosiba 27DF46 and it as the same problem. You turn it on and get a blank scren with "Please Wait" & "thank you for your patience". TV was working fine then te sound went, then the screen went blank. No smoke, nothing smells like fried electronics. The remote does not respond. The only buttons on the tv that seem to have any effect are the volume.

    Please Wait Thank you for your patience is all we've been getting for almost the whole day. Nothing smells or looks like there was a fuse problem.

Mine did exactly the same thing. Sound went out then the blank screen and the message. I was told by Toshiba Tech Support that this message is only set up in the channel scanning area. He suggested a "soft boot" (meaning unplug it and replug it. Did that and nothing. Did anyone solve their problem?

My LCD dynex tv will turn on but keeps flashing on and off saying please wait

The fact that Please Wait appears on the screen that the power board is fine. I would unplug the tv for 4 hours and plug it back in to see if the same thing happens. It does appear that you need to replace the main board,

Reset the tV to its factory settings. Refer its user manual for more details. Unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and replug it after some time, say after 5 minutes or so.
