T's most likely the hard drive. You can replace it and be good to go. It's possible, it's a combo of the motherboard and power supply, but first guess would be try replacing the hard drive.

If you have already reset by unplugging then your problem is some kind of electrical damage. The solution will require internal repair of the devise.

There IS a temp shutoff, but if you're getting no sound at all, it could be that your hard drive has died.

Fortunately, a new drive is cheap (you can upgrade the capacity at the same time) and images and help are both easy to find.

Click on here to get more info on the problem you have with your device.
If you know how to use a voltmeter, you can check the voltages from the power supply to the other circuitry.

What was the problem that you needed to unplug it? How long did you unplug it for? How long have you owned the unit? Where did you purchase it from?
The more information I get the better I can assist you.
Thanks,
Lee

Is it plugged directly into wall power, or into a surge strip?

SAMSUNG HLN617W turns on, picture is perfect, then picture turns off after a couple minutes.. sound still works.. hear a noise that sounds like a fan starting up and shutting off. Picture will not turn on...


It's not the lamp, most of the time they suspected it and the fan gone to malfunction when encountered this kind of symptoms but the fault came from the color wheel. You have to replaced it to resolve the issue.

HAS SOUND BUT NO PICTURE


okay the reason that the its turning off could be the fan isnt spining fast enoug hold your hand at the back of the tv to feel where the exhaust air if isnt good enough to help cool off the bulb then the fan may need to be replaced also the balast could be going bad and last check the power supply that feeds the balast make sure its a constant dc voltage

No picture or sound?? status light flashes in four blinking intervals. I was told it could possibly be the lamp it has never been replaced.


The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
  1. Turn off the television.IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

The 3 times LED code points to no fan rotation. There are 2 fans. Check the larger fan first, p/n = FBL12G12LS, located near the lamp. Even though that fan may be rotating, it may be slow.

Toshiba 43A61 - No Picture, no sound


If your set all of a sudden won't come on, e.g., the screen is blank, but the LED on the under the screen next to the on/off switch keeps flashing, then there may be an internal fault on the set that needs to be reset.
To force the reset, try this:
  • Unplug the set and wait a few seconds
  • Replug and see if the video returns
Whenever the set senses an internal fault through its monitoring circuitry, it essentially shuts down the set. The flashing LED provides the indication that a fault has been detected. Removing power to the set resets the monitoring circuitry. When plugged back in, the circuitry again does a check of the system. If it finds that there truly is a problem, then the set is shut down and the LED will again flash. In this case, you need to call a service tech. Most of the time, however, the unplug/replug routine is enough to get the set up and running.
