Question about Toshiba 20DL74 20 in. EDTV-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

TV loses all power

TV goes blank and the blue active indicator light goes dead. Not the normal red indicator for when the set is just turned off. This happens every time the set is used after about 45 minutes. Have checked and the menu indicates that we are not using sleep mode. The set's plug has to be removed from the outlet for about five minutes and then plugged back in. When it is plugged back in the blue light returns and the set operates totally normally. This problem is driving us nuts. Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

    We have exactly the same problem and Toshiba offers no help. Could it be the power adapter?

I had same problem. Finally figured out the power supply was the problem. I ordered a generic replacement and it hasn't shut off again for over a year. The only thing I have notice is there are noise lines in the lower channels (1-6). This may be beause the Toshiba power supply may have a noise filter in the power supply. But the generic was $30 compared to $80 Toshiba

Bluetooth wont charge or power on. when charging the red light comes on. once disconnected from charger it wont come on


Indicator Lights:
1.Headset Status Headset Indicator Light
2.Powering on Steady blue, then intermittent flashes
(changes to standby mode)
3.Powering off Red appears and goes off
4.Standby Blue intermittent flashes
5.Charging battery Red solid light. Light indicator turns off when
battery is fully charged and headset is off.
6.Low battery Triple red flashes
7.Pairing mode Blue/red alternating flashes
8.Missed call Purple flashes. Press the call control button
to cancel flashing light.
9.Incoming call Triple blue flashes when ringing.
Power on and off:
1.Turn on the headset Press and hold the call control button until the
indicator glows blue. You will hear ascending
tones.
2.Turn off the headset Press and hold the call control button until the
indicator glows red. You will hear descending
tones. When power is off, indicator stays off.
If none of this is helpful then it may be that your battery is dead, if that is the case then you will need to replace the whole headset. The battery's are not replaceable.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!
