Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

T.v. I have a 46" Toshiba HD Television that will loose its picture from time to time. It will be working fine and then the picture goes scrambled and if you shake it the picture comes back and looks perfect. Wanted to know what this could be.

    Who could fix that? Can any tv repair man do something like that or do you need a specialist?

Hi Lee, if shaking or banging the tv temporarily "fixes" the set than you have some bad solder connections on the bottom of one of the boards, this of course means the board has to come out and be re-soldered to cure it, not an expensive repair, any questions? email me back, Happy New Year, BMW Rider

    Lee, Any TV Tech can fix it in 20 minutes if they can find it right away, it`s usually pretty obvious once the board is out and he starts looking with a good magnifying glass. Good Luck with it, BMW Rider
