Question about Televison & Video

Picture went black during viewing and won't return

My 37'' Toshiba LCD tv went black whilst viewing a program. It was like a splodge of black in the middle of the screen, which then spread outward and within 3-4 seconds the entire screen was black. The effect was rather like a cinema film 'melting' in a projector.
The set continued to produce sound for a few minutes, but is now totally dead.
Green light is on, but I get nothing on screen, not even bluescreen or menus. Problem is same regardless of source (Sky, DVD, etc) although I managed to get sound from a DVD source.
The black screen appears to be flickering between alternate shades of black. Nothing in the user manual covers these symptoms. I tried the usual, turn off/on again, unplug, wait a while, try again, etc. but there is only a flickering blackness. It looks like the actual LCD and/or backlight has died.
I would not have expected such dismal failure of a product after only 18 months of casual usage. I will not purchase a Toshiba screen ever again.
Is it terminal?

My toshiba 40e210u lcd tv won't show full image on screen


The Aspect ratio of the TV could be on the wrong setting for the image you are trying to view. Widescreen's standard ratio is 16:9 ensure the TV is not set to zoom, 4:3, or pan & scan in the picture menu of your TV.

If the picture looks normal except it's just missing the edges or looks squashed or looks like it is zoomed in from the normal image then aspect ratio is probably the cause.

Toshiba LCD TV screen went white and stopped receiving pictures


If it is under warranty begin the process by calling Toshiba warranty department at 1-800-457-7777. Demand that they send you a prepaid label as shipping a TV is expensive.

NO PICTURE CAN HEAR SOUND BUT SCREEN BLACK


If the picture faded over time and then went out completely....you have a bad digital main board. Hope this helps.
