Question about Toshiba Televison & Video

1 Answer

Toshiba HD TV Model # 42HL117

My TV turns on as indicated by the small green light at the base of the TV however I have no picture or sound coming from the TV. When I try using the remote, all it does is turn on the TV but nothing else.

Prior to the TV being powered up, there's a series of 9 flahing amber lights from the indicator at the base of the tv; then it turns green indicating its "on" but again No Sound and No Picture.

Can you help

Thank you

Turn tv on. green light solid display, no picture or sound

The flashing green light is likely indicative of a self-test failure, indicating the TV has detected some sort of internal fault. With no picture or sound, one strong suspect is the power supply. Flat-panel TV's have an internal DC power supply that converts the inbound AC current, and when these fail, or are unable to supply a minimum level of power to the set, it can behave as you describe, providing only enough power for the green light to illuminate.

TV Picture Goes Black

I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
