Re: L32

There is something overheating in your tv...
the causes of this might be the vents are being blocked, maybe they have too much dust or there is a tshirt or a towel on your TV.

there could be some resistance, fuse, or transistor overheating making it to shut down to prevent a massive burn out briking your TV

if its a PC.. in wich im not sure if its a tv or a PC.. but if its a PC, its that the CPU isnt getting enough vent.. so replacing the thermal past from the CPU and heatsink will make the temperature go down, also, try checking if the small ventilators are working correctly.. if the dont, change them all.

to make cheap fast repair.. get an air conditioner or a huge ventilator and make the thing get some air

No picture on intermittent basis -

If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts
in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors, the TV might need service.

Toshiba 32C100U popping sound no picture

Might be worth the effort to open it and have a look for loose plugs or a ribbon cable somewhere--if do look for any plugs that are held down with tape near where they plug in.

There is circuit problem inside. For safety reasons power might get shut down! Unless the fault is rectified, this problem will continue. Do not attempt switching ON again & again. Get authorised service center assistance.
