Replace toshiba screen 42av500u

That's a big expensive job. Once you have to pay parts and labor, the cost may be close to a new tv.

My new toshiba tv had sound but no picture. Only a few seconds (2)still image but inmediatly turns off an only audio hears. Not displays any other function, Menu or any else.

Hi, Try to play a DVD movie. If there is still no picture then you know the tuner is no good. I would take it back and ask for a replacement TV. (warrenty is still good).Good luck.

Colors are off on the TV. When I try to adjust the contrast and brightness, etc from the menu, either everything is orange or green or yellow.

Contrast and brightness won't fix it.You are on the right path though.You need to search around for a color adjustment.You should have numbered scales for all 3 primary colors to adjust.It should also be somewhere under the picture option.Let me know if you need better instructions.Good luck!

Audio, but No video when connecting DVD player to TV

Try checking the AV cable. Just interchange the Audio and Video cables, and if now you get video, and no audio, problem is faulty cables. Replace.

My 42AV500U LCD TV acts like a ghost is pushing the volume-down button! When this happens, I push volume-up on the remote, and the volume bar goes up and down like it's competing, but volume go all the way down if I let go. This happens about 10% of the time I use the TV. It seems to happen more often in humid summer weather (yeah, sounds crazy), but that's the only flaky connection I can see. What's puzzling is that it usually happens after the TV has been on a while and is warm, but can happen from the start or after an hour, so it's not a temperature problem. Sometimes, the problem is infrequent and sometimes it's pretty agressive and I can't get the volume to stay above zero. There's a bit more: I use an antenna, and I can use the menu's add/delete channels feature to skip some channels when I surf channels up and down. What's goofy is that some of them will not "stay" turned off, like 5-2 and 7-2, but other subchannels will stay off. So, after I pass the channels once or twice, they reappear as being turned on. Lastly, and this happens rarely, I turn the TV on and the LED power indicator lights up and I hear TV sound, but the screen's backlights don't come on. I turn the set off and on again and all is well. I took the back off the TV and blew out everything with clean compressed air, including the control buttons on the side of the TV while bouncing them to make sure they are clean and free (they are). No improvement. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what may be the cause? I didn't find a software update for the TV.
