Unit turning off after displaying red pc chip icon
This unit had previously been working fine and is very new.
Now when it is turned on the Toshiba start up screen displays for a few seconds, then a red pc chip icon displays in the top left hand corner. The unit then shuts down the lamp and after a minute turns off completely. Before this LED lights on the unit show 'On' red lit, 'Lamp' orange lit, 'Fan' green lit. The manual does not reference this sequence.

Try taking out the battery and leaving the unit unpluged and free of power for at least ten minutes. Then try restarting the unit normally, if the screen is still white then this means it is not receiving data from the graphics processor, if so then this is a indication of a faulty video processor or graphics chip, you may of gathered static electricty while walking across carpet that may of shorted the chip. In which case the only thing that can be done is to either replace the mother board in the unit or send it to toshiba for repair and replacement of the main board, you may want to contact Toshiba first before going futher as they may have a solution for you.
Thats sounds like a ram problem. If it was cpu you should still get a beep or post code. If it can't read the first 64kb of ram in the first chip it will do this.
I would take the ram out and swap the sticks. Then try to boot. If you get it then the chip is the problem. Older ram sockets can loosen up with heat cycle, vibration etc so it could be something as simple as needing to reseat the ram stick and it will work.
The next thing to check would be the cpu. It might be the chip or the socket again.
The power light is strange but I've seen it when the cpu is out when the power transitors go on the board. It may be a fault caused from the cpu.
I still have a 486 Tosh I use. Still can't type faster (or speull bettter) now then when it was new so it still does some things just fine ;-]
For this unit the component output (green, blue, and red cables) only work for the DVD player portion of it. You will need to connect either the av input on the back or the front with composite (yellow, red, and white cables) to your television in addition to the component cables I assume you have connected already. Once you have done so you will need to switch this unit over to the right av output in order to access the vcr and also switch your television over to the right av input in order to pick up the signal from the vcr.
this is a fuser unit error code. reset code in following way.
1, turn off power. 2, hold down 0 & 8 keys. 3, turn on power still holding keys down until beep is heard. 4, enter 400 on numeric keypad. 5,press start button. 6,enter 0 on numeric keypad. 7,press enter icon on the main lcd display.8,cycle power
This means that your laptop does not have the display drivers installed. Check you check in the control panel, go to system icon and click on device manager? Check to see what VGA drivers are installed.
Turn Unit ON.
Set the DVD Mode.
Press and hold the 'STOP' key on the front panel.
Simultaneously press and hold the '7' key on the remote control unit.
Hold both keys for more than 3 seconds.
The On Screen Display message 'PASSWORD CLEAR' will appear.
The 4 digit password has now been cleared.
I have the same problem! The "pcb" referred to in the previous reply is undoubtedly what Sears refers to as the "COVER ASSEMBLY, DISPLAY", part number 3551A20109B. It is possible, but highly unlikely, that the defective part is the ESCUTCHEON, p/n 3831A20079D. Sears lists the cost of the COVER ASSEMBLY, DISPLAY as $17.25 plus, undoubtedly shipping and tax. The part seems to be available only from the Sear Web Site under "PArts Direct". This dehumidifier is a piece of garbage. I previously had to replace the SENSOR ASSEMBLY, p/n 6877A30013L. This item turns off the unit when the water tank is full. This dehumidifier has my room flooded - twice - when the unit failed to turn off and overflowed.
While under waranty Sears/Kenmore attempted to repair the unit five times. They never succeeded and when the warranty ran out they would not repair the unit unless I paid for it. Thats when I started doing my own repairs!
