Hi,
Standby/ timer light blinking 4 times is an error code that shows tv detects problem in vertical deflection circuit and went on protection mode to avoid further damage.
Vertical deflection circuit on main board need to be checked to find out defective parts, replacement of those bad parts will solve your tv problem.
Usually vertical output chip got defective and replacement will fix the problem.
If you feel uncomfortable working in tv circuit board, please ask local tv tech to help you out.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.
Jee.

Older-model Toshiba TV shuts off by itself


There is a large sand filled resistor on the main board close to where the power cord attaches that cracks. This will stop power until it cools enough to make the connection then heats up rapidly to open it again. It may be worth the trouble if you're handy with a soldering gun and can get the back off the TV. If not then I'd consider getting a flat screen.

My Magnavox digital converter box shuts itself off every 5 minute


Check that you have not got an auto power off setting on. Check that the aerial connections are good. That the signal is strong from the stations it is picking up. Weak signals can cause the box to shut down.
It the box is very hot when it shuts down, you might have a fault on it.

Akai flat screen lcd tv.. turns itself off after about 10 min


had a very similar situation with my Phillips 42 in. LCD TV.

Here was my Problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened it up( Warranty was Expired) and found several faulty capacitors on the PSB. Its pretty common. Major Electronic companies were sold faulty capacitors that fail in 2-5 years instead of 10-20 due to a lack of preservatives. It wouldn't surprise me if you have the same problem. TV will work fine for a few years and then just fail completely or slowly deteriorate.

Here are the solutions
1. Have it Repaired
2. Check for faulty caps and if you find some(budged or leaking) you know you have located a problem
Remove the board and replace the whole thing.
3. If you have some soldering skills you can replace the faulty caps.
Caps are very inexpensive, under a dollar in most cases. I replaced 4 for about $5.00

Hope this Helps.
Good Luck

Green screen and distorted picture sound is good but no picture


It must be connected with the color circuit of your tv, a board connected to back end of the tube. Could be dust, cob web or carbon deposit shorting a transistor. Popping noise if loud enough can be attributed to high voltage circuit fault and picture tube.

Have it service by a qualified person.

Insignia lcdtv32 poewr on but no picture


You need to check the 12 or 24v source coming from the power supply to the inverter board, that's the board usually to the left and rather tall. Get your meter set, then turn the set on and see what happens, if the voltage comes up and then shuts down, you'll need to pull the plug for the inverter and measure the voltage again. If it stays up you have a bad converter board, if not then it's in the power supply, that's good old fashion trouble shooting from there on.

Black vertical line on right side (intermitant)


Your problem sounds like the stk type regulator.. Itsnot a really expensive part BUT on a set this old yes you can repair it but also your gonna be repairing it more and more as the capacitors are drying up and the circuit is getting brittle. I wouldnt invest anything in this set. time to make a boat anchor out of it!
