Problem with my 25' Toshiba TV sCREEN

I bought a 25"Toshiba TV screen( Model NO. 2560XHE ) from a friend who was going finish some three years ago.Just recently I encountered a problem with this tv screen. There is no indication of picture display on the screen- a complete black out. Upon depressing the switch of the screen, a red light comes on, and after a while a green light (LED) comes on and off. Can you tell me what could be a possible cause of the problem with my TV please ?

From the symptoms you describe, it seems the high voltage flyback autotransformer has failed along with the horizontal amplifier (they are slaved to each other). This could have happened during the moving process. The sound comes from the flyback unit.

Well, the only way to solve this is to get a technician take a look at the set, I'm afraid. Repairs could cost upto $100 or more, depending upon the number of components that need to be replaced.

It may be worth getting fixed up. If you decide to do so, call around, as shops have different rates and different expertise. Many shops are hurting for work because so many of the smaller sets are never repaired anymore; they are just thrown out and replaced since the cost of a new set is sometimes as low as the repair expense.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

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.

I have a 3 year old Toshiba Tecra M4 Tablet Laptop, and my colors are inverted, anything that should come up black, comes up red. Text is okay, but images just don't look right


It would be oen of three things... in order of cost;

1. LCD Invertor has gone bad
2. SCREEN has gone bad
3. Motherboard has gone bad

In either of the three it would most likely take a toshiba tech to pinpoint exactly the problem and do the repair. Although if you are handy enough you can get the parts and repair it yourself.

Toshiba 50A60 Projection TV - Black Screen


There is no bulb in that model TV. There are 3 crt type tubes. You'll have to have a TV shop determine the cause. It could be many things like no high voltage present, cathode voltage missing. If the tubes are finished, the cost to replace them is quite high. It is a complicated repair since the tubes have to be properly aimed and converged. The repair cost in this worst case scenario would be greater than buying a flat screen TV with the same screen size.

Sharp D64 37" issue (Power+OPC light flash and won't turn on)


I'm going to guess your friend's model is LC-37D64U. ( 37" screen; D64 series)
It's sounding like a power supply problem for the LCD screen. It's somewhat common problem for big LCD screens. But, too early for your friend to be having this problem with the TV.

I would have your friend use the warranty at this point. Last thing you want to do is void the warranty by opening up the TV.

I would first try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 mins so it can reset. Then, try turning it ON again.
If that doesn't work, it warranty time.

If your friend just bought it, have them exchange the TV for another one. I wouldn't want a TV that has problems that just came out of the box. The Sharp TV only has a 1 year warranty. Upgrade warranty life if possible. A repair for a problem like this would cost about $100 for someone to look at it; and $200 to $400 for the part at a TV repair shop.

My color is washed out and dim and the colors are wrong . Toshiba 65h83 projection hd tv


I don't know your model, therefore I will tell you genericaly what the problem may be.

There are many things that can cause this type of fault. The response of the video amplifier stages would have to be checked right up through to the output that drives the projection. it is also possible that there is a fault with the colour demodulator. If the set uses projection tubes it is possible that the tubes are weak, or there is dirt in the optics. Colour demodulation problems can also cause the colours to not be correct. Many models using tubes have an optical transparent cooling fluid in front of the tubes. This fluid may have to be changed.

Model tp50h95 old toshiba wont turn on


Hi, I am not a repair guy and know very little about tv's but I have the same TV set and experienced the same problems you're having about 2 weeks ago.

I found these articles helpful.

http://forums.cnet.com/5208-7596_102-0.html?forumID=60&messageID=2142274&threadID=199369

I decided I would try to repair it even though I didn't have any soldering experience and literally had to go buy a soldering iron. The parts costs me $26 including shipping and it took me about 4 hours to repair. I was so happy when I pressed the power button and my old friend came back to life. It is really simple to do and if you have experience you could probably finish in less than an hour. I hope this helps!

You need to take the Toshiba remote that came with the machine and go into a menu area that deals with convergence. Here's what the manual says:

This TV used 3 separate TV tubes, red, green, and blue. The R, G, and B images are pojected onto the screen wheree they converge to form a full-color picture. You can see a clear picture only when the three images converge correctly. Corvergence my drift over time, or if yo move the TV. I you can see clear images on your TV screen skip this procedure.

Make this adjustment only after the TV as been on for at least 30 minutes.

Press the TOUCH FOCUS (auto convergence) button on the front of the TV at the bottom.
The TV will enter into the convergence mode and adjust the converge automatically (that's what it says.)

TO ADJUST IT MANUALLY:

Press MENU, and the press < or > until the PICTURE menu appears.
Then press UP or DOWN to highlight CONVERGENCE.
Press < or > to display the Center Convergence menu

There's a lot more the book says, but, I can say from experience that you just go through the different sub areas of this menu and converge each color separately, and bingo, it's fixed.

Good luck.
