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.

Re: TV loses all power

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

When turning on tv. screen will display Bravia image & then go blank. red light flashes SIX times

Power off the television. Wait a few minutes, then power it back on. If this does not correct the issue leave the power on, point your remote control towards the Sony television and hold the down arrow button. While holding the down arrow button press the "Power" button. Release the down arrow button and the Sony TVicon1.png will reset itself to factory settings. Once the television performs a scan on itself your problem should be gone.

LG 26LG30 screen suddently went blank. Light flashing blue/red

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find.

Help fix screen t.v.

What red light are you referring to? If you are talking about the red l-e-d power light beneath the screen, that is the power off light. If that red light light momentarily turns green and then immediately red again when you are attempting to turn the tv on, that indicates a bad power supply.
