Toshiba 43A61 - No Picture, no sound

While watching TV (Toshiba 43A61 Theater View), picture and sound just quit. When I turn TV back on, power switch comes on then begins flashing. Still no picture or sound. Unplugging set has no effect.
Does anyone have idea of cause. Estimate to have repairman fix? Would cost be worth fixing or should I throw away and replace entire TV?

Re: Toshiba 43A61 - No Picture, no sound

If your set all of a sudden won't come on, e.g., the screen is blank, but the LED on the under the screen next to the on/off switch keeps flashing, then there may be an internal fault on the set that needs to be reset.
To force the reset, try this:

  • Unplug the set and wait a few seconds
  • Replug and see if the video returns
Whenever the set senses an internal fault through its monitoring circuitry, it essentially shuts down the set. The flashing LED provides the indication that a fault has been detected. Removing power to the set resets the monitoring circuitry. When plugged back in, the circuitry again does a check of the system. If it finds that there truly is a problem, then the set is shut down and the LED will again flash. In this case, you need to call a service tech. Most of the time, however, the unplug/replug routine is enough to get the set up and running.

replace the lamp on your TV, but only replace it with PHILLIPS brand. Anything other than that, will not last. We just replaced ours with Phillips and the picture is much brighter. It really shows the HD quality of the tv.

Go into the tv menu and select the Preferences menu and set your picutre preference from Theater to Normal. The TV is currently in Theater mode, wich is for viewing with no lights on in the room. Switching it to normal lightens the pictue a lot.

No picture, no sound, but has power light...any suggestions? thx in advance

Do this first:

1: Check the antenna/cable connections.

2: Press the TV/VIDEO on the remote control or the TV to view a signal coming from another device connected to your TV, such as a VCR or
video disc player. You can select ANT 1,
VIDEO 1, VIDEO 2, VIDEO 3, ColorStream HD1, ColorStream HD2, or ANT 2 depending on which input jacks are used for connecting the devices.

*Be sure you have the right source to view video.

Try the above and post back before I can say there is a problem with your unit. If you have the user manual it's a good time to get it out. If you don't have it let me know and I will give you a link to obtain it. Good luck!!

Hi! Kilrm,

Servicing this set can be difficult at best, and should be done by a qualified service tech.
