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.

Sounds like your tuner went out. If you are good at soldering replace your tuner. Other wise replace the main board.

I just received a tv from my church and it is a toshiba 27df46 27" tv. It says" please wait, thank you for your patience". I wait and nothing, Help please? Thanks.


The set is trying to auto program the available channels and it can't find any because since the change from analog to digital [FEB 2009] broadcasting requires a "converter box" to translate the digital signal back to analog. Check around and see if you can find a converter box. They were available for $20 with a coupon, maybe they still are. Try an electronics shop or dealer for that info.

CS-40503 takes about 10 minutes for the picture to appear once the set is turned on (sound comes on immediately)....when the picture does appear, it's dim for approx. 5 seconds then comes up to full...


IF THIS SET HAS PIP (PICTURE IN PICTURE) THAN I'D SAY THE PIP MODULE IS GOING BAD. YOU CAN REPLACE IT OR GET THE BYPASS PLUG FOR IT. IT JUST PLUGS IN.

I think you have a vertical problem. Turn up screen voltage to see if there is a tin horizontal line across screen. If so replace vertical output IC and the 100uf/35v capacitor in the vertical circuit.

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?
