I had this problem with these tv`s. The problem actually lies with the power supply inside the unit. Some of the units i`ve seen have 2 blown capacitors on the power supply (C7 and C6) replacing these works. On others, the capacitors as well as a few transistors (Q8 - Q1) are blown. But on all the sets i have seen with this problem, changing the above components restores full functionality to the system.

The simplest problem would be the failure of the backlight.

In case you don't already know it, there is one, and they may or may not last forever.
Also, there is an extra power supply to produce the high voltage the lamp needs to fire that may have failed.

Sometimes, you can look at the screen from an angle to see if there is any sign of movement.
If you can see program material causing a change in the faint image, then you can be pretty sure it is one of the two problems mentioned.

TOSHIBA MODEL 32RV530U WILL NOT TURN ON YELLOW LIGHT IN FRONT BLINKS 3 TIMES


This could very well be a problem with the power supply not allowing the TVs to start up but can also be caused by a problem with the TVs firmware. I would suggest downloading the firmware and following the steps from the following link. The download and steps are in the firmware tab after clicking the link. Be sure that even if you have no picture while applying the firmware update that you under no circumstances remove power from tv for at least 15mins. This is to ensure the firmware completely loads. If you remove power while it's still updating the board may be corrupted. http://support.toshiba.ca/support/ceg/center/en/index.asp?p=32RV530U

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board...

Replace it, the cost to repair will be close to a new one. Flat screens are dirt cheap right now.

I have a rca model led65g55r120q tv flickers and no sound


Check all cables for loose connection, try another input for picture (DVD, BLu-Ray, etc). If none of the other inputs work then it's a panel problem (display) If one or more of the others work then it's a problem with either the tuner or the signal.
