Try leaving it unplugged overnight; it may have an IC locked up.
If that doesn't work, it is likely a power supply problem, these are all too frequent with our sets.
There are at least two supplies in your set; one of them (a low-voltage section or board) stays on continuously so the set can respond to commands from the remote. The other is turned on when you power the set up via remote or button push.
If the set isn't responding to either remote or local set controls, it is likely that the main power supply has failed.
Your help request is captioned as a 52" model number but your text says it is 42" so you need to add the correct model number before anyone can help you.

Hi,Iwas watching TV and the screen went black.No lights on,I unplugged and plugged again but anything happened. My TV is a Toshiba Regza model 42RV530U. Can you help me? Thanks


If there was a popping noise of any kind when the tv screen went black there's a high possibility that one of the fuses in the tv popped and there is no power to the tv. It could also just be the outlet itself and try plugging the tv to different working outlets.

Try unplugging the receiver from your electrical outlet for 10 seconds and plug back in. This will cause the receiver to reboot and re-acquire the satellite signal. After this, you should get your picture back. I hope this helps.

You need to find out if the power supply is putting out 24vdc for the backlight inverter board, it can be that the inverter board has short circuits which will cause the 24vdc to go into shutdown to protect itself, you can disconnect the power cables to the inverter board to see if you will get the 24vdc back.

Picture went black


The backlight inverter board may have gone out, or the power supply for the inverter may have gone out. If it is two years old, you should look at the power supply first for bad capacitors.

on the back of the TV where the power cord plugs into the back of the tv there is a small black on/off switch- it's not as obvious as you would think.... but that was turned off. Not sure how that happened since the back of the Tv was never touched when it went dead- but I unplugged the cord from the back of the tv and from the outlet and reset that switch and it worked.
