The same thing happened to my 37" C3030 on the morning of Friday 19th June. I emailed expressing my outrage (and also that I knew I was not alone in this) and they quickly responded with a customer service address to write to. I wrote my letter and was rung the same day that it arrived by Toshiba with an apology and agreement to repair my television free of charge. This was effected yesterday, and the problem required a software update. We changed over to digital in April and I had no problems so I don't understand why I suddenly had no reception on June 19th. The software patch is on a little disc that the repairer brought with him and inserted into a hidden slot in the Toshiba. He told me that he's had to do it to lots of televisions, but this was his first Toshiba. He normally charges £50. I think it is crazy that this is happening and charging people for something outside their control is outrageous.

Toshiba 50l1350u LCD TV. No power , No Sound, No Back light.

Is there power to the AC outlet? Is that outlet a switched outlet?
Is there a factory reset switch on the TV?
Can't say any more. That's the best "blind guess."

My Toshiba TVs has no optical connection.trying to connect to my hitachi sound bar

Most Toshiba TV's use the optical connection. Confirm that yours does not. They sometimes are hidden away. With the TV on they sometimes will glow red around the connector!

If you have no optical on the TV check if you are using a cable service or cable box for the audio out from the cable service. The best connection is via optical. Better yet is the HDMI. The problem is for over the air no HDMI out from the TV is available.

Am audio extractor adapter are available and not very expensive. It makes for a awkward system if you use a DVD and Cable box with HDMI connections.

Hope this has Helped?

Does toshiba satellite m505-s4940 come with hdmi port

Quoted from CNET review:

"A full-size ExpressCard slot and a memory-card slot are all welcome features, but HDMI has been dropped in the S4940--a plugged-up port is all that remains. "

Re soldering the sockets connections on the pcboard will normally fix this problem. It is unusual to require a socket but possible. Sockets are available through a good electronics outlet, depending on your country.
