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). The sound comes from the flyback unit. It could also be a fractured / cold solder on the PCB or power board.

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,

Hope that helps!

While I was watching my Emerson TV I heard a loud click and the screen went black and audio went off. When I press tv button on cable remote the tv button glows red, and nothing happens on the tv.


Hi the power supply might have shut down through overheating turn the power of at the wall socket & wait for a short time before trying again the TV might reset itself if this doesn't work its probably shut down from a faulty component. good luck

My tv is turning itself of,is it the tv,or could it be my foxtel making it do this,,,


It is most likely the TV. The provider can shut down the service and you might get a message that says either: "are you still watching" of the TV says NO SIGNAL. If it is no signal then the television would shut off after a time.

Has a Tashiba TV, model DLP. Fan goes on & off; when on, it makes a loud noise. Is this how it is suppose to work and is there a way to get the fan to be quieter?


Depending on the TV's age. Older models use a halogen bulb to produce the light for the picture, new ones use LED's to take the place of that. If it is an older set I would lean more toward the color wheel in the DLP light engine to be the cause of the noise, mainly because it was a known issue as they get older, that and the fan speed is usually pretty constant and does not shut off. If it is a newer LED DLP, then I would lean towards the bearings in the fan having issues on the TV, if you hear the fan over the show your are watching or is much more then slightly noticeable when there is a lull in the sound of the show you are watching, I would contact Toshiba for Warranty repair.

Loud buzzing


check your connections again, if you have the audio and video reversed you will get this exact problem no video/ fuzzy video, and squealy noise out of only one speaker (other will likely sound correct) You're watching the sound channel, and listening to the video channel basically... hehe
