Question about Toshiba 20HL85 20 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

TV will not turn on

I've been using this television for over a year without a single problem. I moved into a new house this week, plugged in the set, turned it on and nothing. I hit the power button a few times and it did finally come on once so I hooked up the coax to it, hit the power button and nothing. I haven't had any luck power the set on since.

Sharp Aquos has distorted colors

The set should be transported upright but that rarely causes these issues-----suspect either main signal board or also possible is the power supply (for voltages changing when set is on).

Also if set was opened look for all plugs to be seated--ones with cloth tape where they connect look at first.

failing that based on age of set consider having a technician look at it or if over 3 years consider a new set with extended warranty--70% of this type of set in our shop (100 plus sets at any time in for repair) are less than 3 years old.

I moved my TV from my old house to my new house. Before it worked just fine at my old house, brought it to my new house and it just doesn't turn on! Tried different outlets, wires, etc.

Check the power at the plug point. Check the plug of the TV. If there is no life, then you will need to open the TV panel and check for a blown fuse, a circuit break while transporting, a loose connector within the set or a possible damaged SMPS>
check this link below for some tips on the power supply:

Fujitsu 50"....moved it to new house...plugged back in...won't turn power,no lights,nothing....any ideas

new house? try another outlet, check the where the plug goes into the back of the set. Still no power, repair shop time. Set may have been damaged in the move. A repair shop can determine this.

Sylvania 6842THG won't turn on. the tv red light displays when you push the power button you hear a click and then 5 - 10 seconds it goes back off

I have been having the same issue. I unplug the TV for 10 minutes and it usually works fine. I moves all of my A/V plugs to a single power strip and that helped a lot. Since then, the TV went into protection mode only once in 2 weeks. Next, I will use a power strip that includes the cable protection.

Tv will not turn on with or without remote

The power supply is broken. You need to replace the capacitors that are bulging inside. I did and now it works fine. I don't have any experience but I did it. Follow what this guy did.
