Question about Toshiba REGZA 42WLG66 42 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

42 inch flat screen shows black screen with sound only no picture

I have a 42 inch Toshiba Regza that has always worked fine but the other day I went to go from an HD channel to a standard 480i format and the screen went black and all I could hear was the sound. I tried my xbox and vcr which both had the same result, black screen with sound. The sound works just fine but you can't see any picture so I'm trying to figure out if this is something that can be fixed or if I'm screwed.

That sounds like the backlight system or its powersupply has failed. If you can see an ghost like image when close and at an angle near the dge (depends on the light) then this confirms the backlight being the problem.

Repair cost should be about $100. You should be able to get this fixed under warrenty if you have any. If not get repair estimates before doing anything. It should be worth fixing but it never hurts to know if it is getting close to what a new replacment tv is worth.

If you are using a hdmi cable take it off and switch to component cables if the problem goes away keep it that way. Sometimes the hdmi hookups have bugs like this.

Hello nadine hensl,
there should be a picture size on your toshiba remote. Click on it and go to natural mode or any other mode. Play around with it to see which you like best. Hope this helps, good luck.
