Sounds like it's a high voltage problem. The flyback is putting out low voltage. Common problem. Flyback is ready to burn out. Most flybacks are 30 to 100 bucks.

The problem is probably a faulty IC (chip) or capacitor on tv main board.
Only simple things you can do at home are hard reset and whacking test.
To do hard reset leave the power cord unplugged for two hours; then power up again. This will drain power from tv and will restore all eproms inside the set to factory defaults.
to do whacking test. Just bang (not too hard) your fist on the top, back, sides, etc., to see if you can restore the picture, this can fix bad connectors etc.


If reset and the whacking doesn't help, then the problem is in some faulty or burnt component on main pcb inside tv. Often the jungle IC chip. The jungle IC handles all the video, color and control signals to the projection tubes. It is quite expensive to replace. In this case you will need a tech to test and diagnose the exact failure so that the right outboard parts are replaced at the same time.

The set should be nearly 10 years of age; so, it should have a few years of life left in it, as average life for a Toshiba is around 15 years . So, if you have to spend $300 to fix it and you get another 5 years of life or so out of it, it may be worth repairing, as the only other option is buying a new TV.

Electronic tech needs help this tv only half of picture is showing what could be the problem i wants to fix it myself


Hello Danyell,
According to the model number you provided you have a 42" Insignia plasma TV. The problem you reported with having just a blank black screen on the lower half is due to a bad lower buffer board or also called a lower scan board. The part number is LJ92-01739C and if you Google this part number you can find these online and also find some sites that may show a short video on how to replace it. Price of this board looks to be about $35. Also of note is you will find that this part number is a Samsung part number which means your Insignia TV has a Samsung plasma panel in it so the associated circuit boards will also be Samsung parts.

When you turn the TV on the screen splits in two,


it sounds like one of your buffer boards are going bad. these are the boards that help put the picture on the screen. there are 2 boards an upper and a lower board. if you remove one and turn the tv on you will get half a screen. see then if you get the lines. please leave rating after you check.

Hello! I have a 32" Vizio LCD...within 30 minutes of the tv being turned on, black lines start running through the bottom half of the screen and eventually blacking out the bottom half of the tv screen. It also doesn't have anything to do with the ratio as I have tried that. HELP!

Half a picture in black


Witch part of the screen you loose?if is the bottom or the top it could be a problem in the vertical IC circuit if is the left side or the right side is a problem on the horizontal deflection circuit(very rare),try taping on the set when it does it and see if the pix reacts ,if it does one way or the other you have loose conections and some resoldering need to be done.If you are familiar with tv circuitry you will have no problem.If you are not be safe and call for help.
