I can help you with your Toshiba Plasma TV.

My first comment is that is your TV's boards are in good enough shape to display the 'now booting' message, then they may not need replacement. It is possible a Hard Reset of your TV will be enough to bring your picture back.

First, unplug your TV for a good five minutes and plug it back in.
Then, after plugging it back in, press and hold the POWER button on the set for 5 seconds to reset the TV.

My second comment relates to the model number of your set. I know it can be a challenge to find the correct model forum for posting here at FixYa. I notice that your post is under 50HP82, while I can find no reference to the 'now booting' phrase in the 50HP82 manual. However, the 50HP95 manual does mention that this message will be displayed upon startup until it can enter Standby mode. The more accurate your model information can be, the more specific our solutions will be.

I hope that helps.

Have you been into the display options to choose how you would like to use your external display.

Powering up

Good day sir, hi, your plasma TV has a module called switching power supply board, this board accepts AC mains 110/220v and convert them to different voltage levels to power your plasma tv. If your TV isn't powering up, this board is the culprit. you need check the fuse of this board or replace this board if the fuse is good. A replacement board is hard to come by, call your dealer if there is warranty, use it. If the warranty has already lapse, inquire your problem to them about the service. thanks.

Hi, Look for bulging capasitors on the DM module board located to the left from the back of Tv and replace them. Should fix the problem or call a local Tv Repair Shop. Thanks.

Blinking green light no pic or sound

Hi Stan,

the blinking green lights is usually called The Blinking Light of Death

There is nothing much else you can do.

The problem is some swollen capacitors on the 5v line keep the microprocessor from booting up (the 5v is supplied to the micro).

The repair should not be over $250 to replace those 4 capacitors on the DM board/module.

They had a huge run of these sets with bad caps.

You cant do a error test because the micro won't boot. I'm afraid your options here are limited to calling for service.

be aware you can kill you tv by trying DIY, but click here for your fix.
similar tv, same problem, I'd leave it up to a pro though.

- justasnwers.

hope this helps,

Lg plasma 42PC3D no picture with sound

I know you already replaced the board, this is for future searchers. If you heard a popping sound, then the picture went out, there is a 32 pin Sanyo module that goes bad on the board. That's probably what caused the fuse to blow. Replace the module, then replace the fuse. The module is less than half the cost of a used board. Since this was a popular model TV, there are lots of replacement boards on the used market.

You could have a few problems . If the front display light flashes only it could be you need a new deflection module . Also the HV block may be bad with it . If you have no front display light when you turn it on it could be the above problem or the signal board could be bad . The signal board would cost the most to get repaired due to it costs more. You would need a meter to check certain testing points to confirm which module is bad . Or call around to see who has the cheapest rate on an estimate to check out your tv. deflection board and hv block est $250 to $300. Signal board $300 to $350. Maybe more if you had a service call if you could not take it to a repair shop. Good luck
