Question about Toshiba 50HX70 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Toshiba 50HX70 - red blinks but TV will not turn on...

In the past when this has happened we have unplugged the set for an hour or so and then everything is fine. This time it does not help. The red light keeps blinking. There is no picture, no sound - nada. Do I need to call a repair man or is this an easy fix? (I am not technical by any stretch of the imagination). Thanks for any help.

Hi, you`ll need to call the tv guy then, you have a short in one of the power supplies, or possibly broken solder connections, either way the board has to come out and board repaired or parts changed, BMW Rider

The red and green lights on my Sony KF-42SX300 keep flashing, and the TV will not switch on. It was working fine earlier, the lamp light also comes on, but not all the time, it has noly just started doing...

I would take the Lamp out and see if it is shattered. It is not unusual for them to fail suddenly. If it is shattered, you can contact Sony at 1800-222-SONY and order one.
I hope this helps

Alarm doesn't go off when set. I've adjusted the time. Still nothing

Try removing the battery and unplugging it form the wall for a few hours. This will allow the microprocessor time to discharge and reset to it normal functions. After letting the Clock/Radio discharge, you can put the battery back in the Clock/Radio and see if it has reset itself to the factory setting.Then use the link ( copy the web page link and paste it into the address bar of you browser. It will take you to Emerson home page for owners manuals. There you can find your model clock radio and follow the instructions for resetting the clock radios functions. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

My Sony comes on then both sound and picture goes black.

After being on a little while, the screen goes black (no audio as well) for 20 to 30 seconds. Green light stays on. Then, picture comes back on and takes a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. About 5 seconds or so after the video comes back, the audio returns.

Until this morning, has only happened a couple of times a day, now happening more often. About 3 times in last 20 minutes.
