    The power cord is separate from the tv. Inside the case of the TV there is a receptacle that receives the power cord. It is a case with a pin in it. The power cord plugs into that case. It is the case inside the TV that is broken.

You could open the TV up and follow the cord until you can find some kind of fraying or break in the cord or leads they are connected to. If it's the cable itself, you can solder them back together and wrap it in electrical tape. You just have to be careful about making sure the right wires are connected and that none of them are touching each other. Use the electrical tape to separate the wires so they don't short out and start a fire. If it's not the wire itself, then it's possibly the power supply it's connected to.

No sound from speakers sound only with headphones


You'd have to open up the TV back panel and look inside for why the speakers aren't working. A wire could be loose on one of the speaker connections or the amplifier for them is broken. An easy way around that is to use the headphone connection and plug into the aux port on a stereo/home theater receiver and use that for audio instead

Toshiba Model 51H84. Power breaker tripped during a storm. Breaker reset, and TV will not power on. Is there a fuse? Is there a reset button of some sort? How should I proceed? Thanks.


Hi,

Your TV has a fuse on power circuit board ( that is a standard part).You need to resemble your tv to get the fuse ( make sure to disconnect all power and antenna before doing this service). Usually any tvs use a clear glass cover on fuse ( you can see a small conductor inside the glass). Replace the fuse if the small conductor gets broken. If after the fuse replacement, you got no joy on tv, the receiver part could be get problem also ( due to storm attack) and need to repair / replacement.

I hope the storm only attack your TV fuse.

Good luck

GPSMAP 178C Sounder GPS Receiver: My 178C will not stay powered up. I just replaced ...


I had the same problem with mine. It is caused by a crimped wire on the internal harness inside the machine. I opened it up and discovered that when originally put together 3 of the wires from the plug were crimped. One was broken off. The only way to fix it is to open it up, restrip the wires place a piece shrink wrap on before you solder it back and then make the shrink wrap flush with the back of the plug and heat her up. And, Voila... no more intermittent operation. Hope this helps? John

Black and white picture only


The color wheel is not the problem. If the spinning color wheel is impaired in its RPMs it will cause picture distortion, not black and white picture. If the color wheel looses any of its color fins, like if it is broken, there will be a loud vibrating noise inside the tv which you did not mention. Also if the color wheel is broken and doesn't spin, the tv will not start up.

The likely problem is on the digital control board or the power supply and should be referred to a local repair shop for repair.

There is an outside chance that you will receive color if you experiment with using all of the different input ports to see if you can find one that will bring back color.

Ribbon cable broken and now cannot open the face plate


You need to take the unit apart to fix the cable since the other end of it plugs into the board inside, it's pretty easy to take apart though. Good luck!
