No Video or Sound after power outage


While it's certainly possible to fry the whole power supply or the DMD board, it's more likely that you've blown a capacitor. This same situation happened to my brother's TV after a power outage. I told him to unplug it for a half hour and that didn't help. He left it unplugged and when I finally got around to open it up the following week, I turned it on and worked. (I told him I fixed it).

Unfortunately the same thing happened after the next power outage so I opened it up and replaced two leaking capacitors by the power cord. It has yet to fail again after numerous power outages.

So first thing to try is leaving it unplugged for a few hours or even a day. Keep your fingers crossed that it doesn't happen again. If it does, either you or someone else should open it up and check for leaking or blown capacitors.

My 2001 Mitsubishi Medallion recently stopped recieveing HD channel from my FIOS HDTV Box. When switching from standard channels(they work) to an HD channel, the screen shows scrambled mutltiple images and...


If the TV works in the "Other" modes than I would suspect, that the FIOS HDTV box has developed some fault. When a TV goes to a "Blue Screen" this means that it cannot interpret a proper signal, maybe you need to reset the FIOS, anyway check that out, the TV itself, I do NOT think is faulty, check connections, antenna and to TV as well. Unplug ALL from wall wait 5 mins, and power back up, this often fixes a lot or problems.

R - Restore: Restore default settings E - Environment: Change your environment, remove from media cabinet, try different media, try different equipment (TV, router, hotspot, etc.). P - Power Cycle: Power cycle by unplugging your networking equipment from wall for 2 minutes to reset. A - Access this Knowledge Center for useful articles to resolve issues. I - Install the latest System Software Update. R - Resolved: In most cases these steps can resolve your issue.

Blinking yellow light ,no picture or sound.


You have done all you can do. If you had a power outage, when the power came back on a it surged and probably caused a Power Supply problem or something in the micro controller to fail. Either way it 's not good. I would call Toshiba and let them guide you to a Service Facility that can check it out. Depending on your Homeowners Insurance, repairs could be coverd or unit be replaced depending on cost to repair.

Tv turns on and then off


Good Day, ruschracing;

Storm? The first thing you should do is unplug the TV from the wall for 3 to 6 minutes (reset), then plug back into wall.

If that does not help, then you should call an authorized service center to give you an estimate for the repairs. OR call your home owners insurance company.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
