Question about Toshiba 42HP84 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Snowy Picture, Toshiba 42HP84 plasma tv

We experienced a snowy picture across entire the screen until the t.v. appeared to "warm up". It was fine until you turned off the tv and then started it back up. It wasn't every time you turned it on. Then, it became more frequent, and now, we have nothing but the snowy picture. You can see images moving, and sound and everything else is fine. It doesn't have anything to do with the signal. More like something burnt out.

Similar problem with my Toshiba. I was told it was the power supply and that it would cost about $900 to replace parts and labor

First of all, I'm not an expert but you might wanna change your cables. Bad and cheap cables are usually the reason for bad and snowy picture. Good luck!

yes it could ba the cable itself even, but i suspect more the tuner circuit or tuner itself may have bad solder connections. Here is another test for you to try, plug another dvd or vcr, or xbox etc. into the back, using one odf the inputs. See if this works like the built in dvd. if so it will be more likely bad connections in the tuner or surrounding circuit. good luck.
