Question about Toshiba REGZA 42RV530U 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba Regza 42 inch LCD flat screen tv. Sometimes when changing channels the scrren turns green. There is still sound. The only way to bring the picture back is to turn the tv and dvr off and then back on.The tv is hooked to a DVR via HDMI cable. I have replaced the cable 3 times. Could there be a problem with the compatibility of the DVR with the TV?

    I had just finished watching a program I DVR'd. I went to change the channel on my TV and the entire screen went gray/black and then became a bright pink. I think the top said PCM or something like that I am not at home to look at it.

I suggest you do firmware update first, then you can use another source such as a DVD plug in to the same HDMI input when the problem appear, to make sure where is the problem, if it is the on the TV, replace the main board.
Part # 75012465 cost approx $300.

Knowledge obtain from: Repair experience on same symptom.

I have a toshiba flat screen 42 inch. i went to change the channel and now all i have is a white screen and no sound


Hello
The tuner card in your TV is not working I thinks. Anyway set the TV to its factory defaults. It will make all the setting to factory levels. If this also didn't helep you, repace the tuner card.
To restore the TV to its factory setting:
[1] Press Menu and open the SETUP menu.
[2] Highlight INSTALLATION and press ENTER. A new set of installation menu will appear.
[3] Open the SYSTEM STATUS menu. Hilight the SYSTEM INFORMATION, and press ENTER.
[4] Press [ => / [5] Enter your PIN code (or 0000 if no PIN code has been set).
OK

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


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.
