Question about Toshiba 32AF43 32" TV

1 Answer

TV will not immediately turn on.

A sign saying "Please Wait. Thank you for your Patience" appears on the screen when the TV is turned on. It has always done this. I have to turn it off and on before it will actually bring up a picture. The time for waiting is getting longer and longer.

I thought it had something to do with lack of a cable or satellite connection. But now I have satellite service and it is taking up to 30 minutes for the TV to actually tune in.

I've taken it to a repair shop and they don't have a clue. Please help me.

    Same problem with Toshiba 27DF46. Toshiba said unplug for several minutes. Repair shop said unplug for several hours to allow TV to reset. No luck.

Why my screen says please wait then goes black


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

My LCD dynex tv will turn on but keeps flashing on and off saying please wait


The fact that Please Wait appears on the screen that the power board is fine. I would unplug the tv for 4 hours and plug it back in to see if the same thing happens. It does appear that you need to replace the main board,

"please wait thank you for your patience"


Reset the tV to its factory settings. Refer its user manual for more details. Unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and replug it after some time, say after 5 minutes or so.

PLASMA DISPLAY STARTING UP. PLEASE WAIT


Un plug the power to the Plasma Screen and also to the Media Receiver for ten minutes. Disconnect the off the air antennas both A and B. After ten minutes plug in the plasma screen then the media receiver and turn on wi the remote control. You should now be back in operation. I was.
Also It may not be a bad digital tuner. The TV Guide feature is active even when the zip code is set to all 0s so if you have an over the air antenna attached the TV will look for the TV Guide info and if it can not find it because of a weak signal or the chanel it is tuned to does not carry that information the TV thinks that tuner does not work which triggers the 12 flashes. Also on power up the gray box with the waring message "Plasma Display Starting Up, Please Wait" appears and the screen is blank.

TV turns on, but the only thing on the screen is Please Wait Thank you for your patience.


Mine did exactly the same thing. Sound went out then the blank screen and the message. I was told by Toshiba Tech Support that this message is only set up in the channel scanning area. He suggested a "soft boot" (meaning unplug it and replug it. Did that and nothing. Did anyone solve their problem?
