Question about Toshiba 36AF61 36" TV

Open Question

Our Toshiba 36AF61 is several years old; great picture etc, but recently the remote has stopped working. We bought a replacement remote but hte same problem exists (and the new remote works fine on another tv). Do we have any hope of fixing the set (which is quite heavy) in-home for less than the cost of a new set ?

yes they do go bad. try cleaning the inside of the remote and check for a bad solder connection with-in the remote. the key pad can get dirty from your handling maybe a good cleaning but do not scrub it just lightly touch the pad with cue tip and alcohol

SOURCE: Volume go up to MAX, power button does not work

To all of you, change the tact switches (all of them) on the front panel control board and end of problem, very common problem, part number for these switches is 23344443, any or several will become "leaky" and give all sorts of symptoms, MANY times this is caused by using windex or similiar type cleaners, it gets into the switches and corrupts them, this will fix-ya, BMW Rider

This happened to my 44nhm84.  The problem turned out to be the light tunnel, which is an arrangement of four little mirrors mounted between the lamp and the color wheel inside the light engine.  One of the mirrors had come loose and was blocking the light transmission pathway.  I used a little dab of glue to hold the mirror in position, and the problem was fixed.
I've read about other reports of problems with the light tunnel, but usually they say that only one side of the picture is dim.  I think it depends on which end of the light tunnel gets blocked.  If the end towards the condenser lens is blocked, then the blockage will be imaged on the screen.  If the end towards the lamp bulb is blocked, the problem is well out of the focal plane of the lens, so a general dimming is the result.

Unlikely to be a fuse, likely to be some capacitors and possibly semiconductors need changing in the power supply or line output section of the board.

I have lost access to all the USB ports on my Toshiba Satellite P105-S6024. Most recently - 12/26/09 - I was able to use all ports, althought my 16BB Flash Drive - Staples Relay Model also suddenly stopped...


There are a few toys and devices made in China that deadshort the USB terminals. I hope you have not bought and installed one of these. I had 2 in the shop a year ago with some Dora Explorer usb toy that toasted the usb once installed. If you have bought and installed something about the same time as the usb stopped working you will need to call the company that made the device and demand they replace your motherboard.

My toshiba 36af61 wont turn on only a small red light blinks


it sounds "TSIKKS"? observe first about 5 seconds, try to feel on your skin on the picturetube and you may feel static current or electricity, indicating that your television works!? try to plug cable, any vedeo inputs, but if not? then the power section maybe checked and replace the defective parts.

Hi.

Yes the dss module is very common to fail.
Unless you have proffesional soldering station & can work on ics whith 200 plus legs do not attempt to repair.
On ocaision if you moan to toshiba they will send A replacement module free of charge. I have had several come to our shop where Tosh has done this the module is just over £100.00 to buy.
All you need do then is pay to have it fitted saving over £100.00

Hope this helps

Toshiba 36zp38b picture problems


With it only being about 3 years old, I would suspect bad solder connections rather than defective components like Capacitors. You may get the symptoms to come and go by slapping the side of the set or jaring it slightly which would prove the bad connection thesis. It is not a permanent cure however and you can make it worse if you keep doing that. A solder repair shouldn't run over $225 in my opinion.

Loss of colour


With the set being 12 years old, I'm sure the picture tube is near the end of its useful life. You probably have a defective semiconductor, either an IC or transistor that has gone up giving you no color, but with the green picture, it is not likely worth repair.

Toshiba TV Remote Control not working


I have been seeing a lot of Toshiba remote "eyes" (the infra-red receiver inside the TV) fail recently. If several known good remotes cannot control the TV then the IR receiver will have to be replaced. If you have no experience soldering and unsoldering PC boards then have a qualified tech handle it for you.
