Re: TV went black - Please wait message...
I think you both have faults on the line output stage of your tv either the line output transistor has become faulty or the line output transformer itself has become faulty. If you are able to check this for yourself otherwise find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

most units are made by someone else. your unit probably has LG parts. get the unit looked at by a Toshiba authorized servicer. they may be able to repair it at component level. the $900 you stated sounds at least $200 too high for board level repair.
We did in fact. We called bak toshiba and explained that it was a few days out of warrenty and that we did some research on the matter and found that the part toshiba used was a LG part, and that LG had issued a extended warrenty on the part of their product. The people at toshiba service asked if we had been told the first time that they were willing to cover some part of the issue due to the short time past the warrenty and acted surprised that we had been given no inclination that they would still cover anything after the warenty period. They eneded up covering the cost of the replacement screen, at a on paper cost of 3k (the tv cost 1600) we had to cover labor at $250. Everything went great and the TV is back on the wall. Hopefully it last untill the OLEDs are 50" and equal in cost.
I think that the pop you heard was an electrolytic capacitor blowing its top on the picture frame board. If you are able to check this for yourself by looking on the board for the one/s with a bulging top or are a brownish/black colour like something has caught fire. And also in this situation smell can be of great help as it will smell burnt out but PLEASE before putting your nose or anything else in the tv take all necessary precautions against electric shock and discharge any electrolytic capacitors in the vicinity. If you are not able to do this yourself find a competant technician. Hope this helps.
