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.

Re: TV turns on, but the only thing on the screen is...

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?

Sounds like your tuner went out. If you are good at soldering replace your tuner. Other wise replace the main board.

I just received a tv from my church and it is a toshiba 27df46 27" tv. It says" please wait, thank you for your patience". I wait and nothing, Help please? Thanks.

The set is trying to auto program the available channels and it can't find any because since the change from analog to digital [FEB 2009] broadcasting requires a "converter box" to translate the digital signal back to analog. Check around and see if you can find a converter box. They were available for $20 with a coupon, maybe they still are. Try an electronics shop or dealer for that info.

Blue line on TV screen


Your TV has a vertical fault. Based on your description, chances are that it is the vertical IC that went bad. It is relatively a simple repair job and any person with basic familiarity with electronic components and circuitry and soldering would be able to do the job. Should you venture to do a DIY please be reminded of the standard safe practices involve when working inside a TV unit.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
