I had the same problem just take every screw out of the back panel and take the back panel off and put some thin rubber or some tape make sure it covers all the holes then cut out all the spots where the jacks come out of and make sure you leave some excess tape so none of the jacks touch the bare metal of the back plate then figure out what screw holes have metal in them and DO NOT PUT SCREWS BACK IN THOSE HOLES!! cause if you do after you put the metal black plate back on it will still continue to short out but if you make sure not to put screws back in those holes it should stop shorting out and work just fine. Just when you connect cables up to the back of it be care full not to push the connections in cause you will break them. my suggestion cause i do the same thing would be to turn the cables back and forth while you push them on or if you need to put a screw in to the hole connect the cables you need to connect JUST REMEMBER TO TAKE THE SCREW BACK OUT. then sit back and enjoy one more thing i don't know how many people have had the same problem but mine completely fried my front left speakers so if you like your speakers make sure you have some sort of a fuse on every one of your speakers OH AND ONE MORE THING REGARDING THE ACTUAL PROBLEM YOUR HAVING you may NOT be able to use every connection on it so just check which ones you can use with some really cheap device i am able to use all of the YELLOW, WHITE and RED connections on mine i don't know if my RGB, DIGITAL AUDIO, or S-VIDEO connections work I'm going to try the one DIGITAL AUDIO COAXIAL connection tonight i will post if it works or not if you would like i do have ever think i need to test the rest of the jacks if you want me to send me an email at P.S. the way i see it is you can either spend $200.00 dollars at least for repairs or you can spend 1-2 hours of your time and about $5.00 on a roll of duck tape and if it still keeps shorting out send me an email and i will give you some more tips on what you can do cause there is a few more things i did just to be extra sure that no metal on the back plate wouldn't create a short any where or if you don't even want to deal with putting the tape on you can just keep the back off and just look at the back plate while your hooking up cables so you know were to connect them need tips on keeping that thing cool let me know i gut a bunch of ways i keep mine cool ever since i dam near burnt my self after having it running for an hour when i went to connect up another device

Disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver then turn it back on. If it still shuts off, it needs to be serviced. If it stays on, reconnect speaker wires one by one and turn the receiver on to test. When you find the speaker/wire/speaker connection with a fault, it will shut off. Look at the wire closely to make sure no exposed braids are touching, then check the connection at the speaker. If it looks visibly ok, disconnect at speaker, make sure the wires are separated, and test again. If it stays on, check the speaker itself with a meter if you can for high resistance or a dead short. If your not sure how to do this, take the speaker to any stereo store or electronics shop and they can test it for you quickly and generally at no charge. If you reconnect all speakers and there is no problem. You fixed it!. It's the most common AV problem reported. A single braid as small as a hair can ruin a good day if it's touching from positive to negative. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, post a comment and I will help you further.

TV won't turn on. flashes a series of 5 red lights instead of turning green

Usually Sony and LG Blinking Codes are the same. Here is what I have.
  • Unit is dead, No blinks - Problem in the standby power section. Might check fuse,
  • Continuous blink once a second, no pausing - No reply from the jungle IC301 (data bus is busy, shorted to ground, or held high), IK video path is defective.
  • One blink - not used for the self-diagnosis
  • Two blinks - B+ over current protection (OCP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 2 blink fault. Could be a short in the power supply of any of the circuits.
  • Three blinks - B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit,
  • Four blinks - No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted.
  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
  • Six blinks - No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately.
  • Seven blinks - High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits.
  • Eight blinks - Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code.
  • Nine blinks - Panel Module Error or Thermal Error. If it is intermittent 9 blinks, meaning sometimes the TV comes on and other times you get flashing Make sure the regulator is -12 or -13 (negitive).
  • Ten blinks - Check Q8014 and Q8013 for shorts, leakage, or bad solder connections on the " D" board. If the transistors are bad, check R8051 and IC8005, also on the "D" board.

Will not turn on after using selfclean

Hey there, does it not turn on immediately after you use self clean? Or will it work once oven has cooled down? Due to very high temperature during self clean, oven may need to return to a safe temperature before next operation...

Toshiba satellite tuns it self on

Check the power button or get it checked.It must be either pressed(on the inside) or some shorting of the circuits must be there. It will hopefully resolve your problem.
For a temporary solution just remove the batter when you turn off the laptop.
