Question about Toshiba Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba 42WH18B and I am told that the teletext board has gone (suffering from intermitent picture and lines, picture switching between black and white and colour). Can anyone tell me what the part number is for the teletext board and where I can get one? Thanks

The teletext board in that set is an add on and as such if it is taken out the set will work happily without it and as teletext no longer exists in the UK, not a problem. When the set is switched on without the panel, the microprocessor will see there is no board because it won't get the hand shake and perform as though it were a 42WH08B
Hope that helps.

    Will I be able to remove the teletext board myself or do I need an engineer to do it?

    I think it is plugged in but I can't remember.
    If you take a look inside, the text board in near the front panel and about 1 1/2" high and 2" long.
    Watch for dry joints under any heat sinks, that may be the real reason for the intermittancy.

My tv only show black and white lines, it shows no picture but the lines

The main digital processor board should be troubleshooted. The work is a skilled one, that a user cannot locate the exact fault point with these boards. Contact any experienced service technician. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact the nearest service center.

7inch vertical color lines right side of screen all th time


This website has the service manual ($7.79) with instructions to diagnose the boards. Unfortunately I am afraid that the problem is not a board but the panel itself.

Thin vertical lines in the middle of the picture mean that the panel is gone. Here an example of lines from bad panel in Toshiba LCD:Line Picture. (discussion: Avsforum). Sometimes the lines can be dark or in bright color.

The panel costs $339 (LCD PANEL ASSY).

Because of the price of the panel, the TV is not worth repairing unless under warranty.

Even if the TV is out of warranty call Toshiba and report the problem. As you can see in AVSforum page above the problem is affecting many users.

If Toshiba doesn't offer special conditions on repair (or discount on new), the TV is not worth repairing. Replacement of the digital board will hardly be a solution.

Only if you have wide bands, scrambled or flickering, then the problem is digital board (main board) or panel.If you have the thin pixel lines, then the panel is gone.

You may have suffered a power surge which has damaged the motherboard and other components. I have suffered 2 myself and this sounds similar. Try reinstalling ALL your drivers and see if this solves it. If not I think *********** board has been ESD damaged.

If the set is a standard CRT type set and the line is a horizontal one, this is a common problem that has nothing to do with the switch. There is a problem with the vertical circuit that can be a simple as poor connections at the vertical IC (LA7837 or somthing similar) or a defective IC.

Check CC/TELETEXT setting, most likely your teletext is activated,switch it off and black square will go away.

Toshiba REGZA 37AV500A LCD TV when using HDMI input picture and sound intermitantly blacks out for about 2 seconds

Does this happen with all the HDMI inputs. If only the one then jack is bad. Replace the main board. If on all HDMI inputs see if replacing the cable helps.
