Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

We own a Toshiba Regza 42" direct view LCD TV. We have owned this since last November (bought as a Christmas gift). This TV was working great until last night (7/7). Powered it on and for a split second, the picture was displayed and then the screen turned totally black. You can not raise any kind of menu etc.. Nothing but total blackness. We shut it off and tried to power it up again about 5 mins later but got the same problem...picture for about a sec, then nothing but black. What could be causing this to happen? Any suggestions or similar experiences/fixes would be appreciated.

    Jaime867....Thanks for the info. We called the local service center that is linked to Toshiba. Tech there thought it sounded like a 'back lighting problem'. They will try to service it later this week and hopefully we will will have it back soon.

Unfortunately there might no be a fix for this type of failure unless the LCD is open and perform a few measurements in the circuitry. Since the TV is less then a year old, I would suggest to contact the vendor or manufacturer to have it repair under warranty, most electronics devices carry one year warranty.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Recently changed my bulb for my Wega LCD KF-42SX300U TV. Since then it is turning itself off, with no particular pattern. It can come straight on and last for a few seconds, or last the entire evening....


Hello,
This is a classic case of a faulty lamp(even though it is new). Possible that it is a ballast(lamp power sply) problem but it is more likely that the lamp doesnt quite meet the required specifications. Your lamp may be a Non-OEM or a refurb. You should try to get it exchanged with the vendor you bought it from.
justlamps.com is a great source for bulbs.
good luck

Cant get dtv on my toshiba regza


Does it work with a DVD or VCR?
How is it connected? With a Coax cable or a an RCA component cable? Check that the correct video source is selected (The one associated with the input you are connected with) or that you are tuned to the correct channel on the TV if you are using the coaxial cable to connect. Could be channel 3 or 4 but I have seen them set for channels like 73.

Our newly purchased Toshiba - REGZA 42" 1080p Flat-Panel LCD HDTV has a fuzzy "snowy" picture. Direct TV is our satelite provider.


First check if this happens in other external video source as well, like DVD/CD/VCR, etc. If it does, get the set replaced under warranty.

If it happens only with the Direct TV setup, try unplugging the set top box from both power supply and TV. Wait about a minute and reconnect. If the problem is rectified, the issue is with the setop box. Call Direct TV in this case.

Toshiba 50h81


it happens to my toshiba.. once in a while and gradually shutsdown every minute during the last 2 mos..

Mine is Toshiba 55 TZ, have it since 98', shutdown and red light blinking problem, search the net and found out, generally a Convergence IC (stk392-110) problem. bought 2 for $15 at suburban-elect.com (ebay). replaced following direction from http://www.casiasfamily.com/repairlog/tp50h15.html

Open back cover, 9 screws and wirings (pls mark), removed(soldered) a electronic board infront of convergence ic. removed IC (stk392-110) (screwed and soldered).

Replaced everything and voila...! it is now working again..
no more shutsdown and red blinking light. Saves mo $400 for a repariman. of course just be careful with static and stuff.

I don't know how to solder, so I ask friend to do it for me. But I did the rest. Just to give you an idea that it can be done even if you don't know much about electronics. This in no way a recommendation but just stating my experience. Follow at own risk.
