Hi tourtsbabybo,

There must be a problem with the internal tv software or a problem with the physical parts in the TV.

1. Try turning off your TV and take out the power cable for 1 hour and plug it back in and see if it works properly.

2. call the service center for your tv and ask them about your issue and they can help you with your problem.

i hope this helps.

"please wait thank you for your patience"

Reset the tV to its factory settings. Refer its user manual for more details. Unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and replug it after some time, say after 5 minutes or so.

Power on Message "please wait

First try to reset its pascode. You can do it by following method

If you forget your password, press RECALL

four times within five seconds while the TV is

in password entering mode. This allows you to
reset your password.
If you can't or the set don't allow to do this, call the authorised service personal, as the set is still booting, and does not compete it all. To retify this, you have to enter its service menu, and it is a very very skilled job, and you can't do it by yoursef. OK

TV has been getting static fuzzy lines, like snow in the picture increasingly bad. Now makes a pop noise, goes black for 2 seconds and comes back on. Thank you

Time ofr a new tv. The guns or gun control system is goign bad. Before it results in something worse ust replace the unit. Cost of repair is not worth the price.

TV turns on, but the only thing on the screen is Please Wait Thank you for your patience.

Mine did exactly the same thing. Sound went out then the blank screen and the message. I was told by Toshiba Tech Support that this message is only set up in the channel scanning area. He suggested a "soft boot" (meaning unplug it and replug it. Did that and nothing. Did anyone solve their problem?
