Chances of the tube being shot are very small. You proably have a bad Horizontal output transistor and maybe a few other components. This transistor is an easy fix for the repair man but should not be done by a novice. Cost for the part is anywhere from $2-18 cost for the replacement is prob anywhere from $50 and up.

Hi! My toshiba 2100td tv is over 10 years old and last few years it's having weird problems. When it's turned completely off (not in standby) and when I turn it on, the screen blinks for a 10-


The real problem here is its age, a lot of these sets of that age critically needed parts are just no longer available.

I repair them but the real risk is someone fixed it, a few months later it develops another problem etc etc etc.

Ten years is now a days a long life for a TV.

Panasonic 36 inch flat screen tv 6 years old (model unknown) just stopped turning on. Act as if it is unplugged. Could it just be the fuse? If so, where is it located and how do i replace?


Fuse sounds right.  Had a Toshiba 32" that did the same thing.  Had to have a repair man come out.  $150 charge all told.  Worth it, because a new TV would be a lot more.  Unless you are some kind of electronics wizard, you don't want to take that thing apart.  They are very delicate-looking inside (and really cheap-looking, actually!).

You, more than likely, need a new lamp

This is for the original problem.. Not the second post.

It's a problem in the horizontal deflection circuit. The parts will be available, but you will be in for some daignostic repairs also to find out why it failing or if it has failed on it's own.
There should be a few caps near the IC (an LA7840) that could also be causing the problem. Click the link, it will make it easier to locate the part inside.

This is the kind of repair best left to a TV tech, but get it done now and it won't cost anywhere near as much as it will later.

Bad lamp?


If you have the owners manual look on page 64 and see what it says there about the light lighting up in the front of the unit. if you do not have the owners manual, you can get one for free here: http://tacpservice.toshiba.com/ConsumerProductSupport/Manuals/TV/2004/52-62HMX84_E_R1_093004.pdf
