Describe your mw24fp1 toshiba replace

Hello,

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to. This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.

The TV is receiving current but cannot circulate or transfer the current to other necessary part of the TV because of the defective power supply board.

I do not think it needs replacement, rather some defective capacitors are causing this issue.
Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.

The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)

You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.

What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors). After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored.

Better still, you can just replace the whole power board...........

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.

If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.

I hope this helps.

There were lines at top

you have a vertical problem . You will need the chip or IC. please check the voltage source to the chip(IC). Diode could be short. Ic had bad solder joints and there are 2 caps that will need to be replaced 100uf or 220 uf caps in the vertical circuits.

Need to get passed the language screen without

Unfortunately, this TV doesn't have an alternative for the original remote. I wish the TV buttons could be used in the menus. A programmable universal remote, such as the Logitech Harmony, probably could be made to work the Menu functions. Alternatively, http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=MW24FP1&uuid=12836576773350 has a new substitute remote that should exactly match the functions of the original or a used remote that is an exact match.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Tv won't come on

Hello,

The power light may be flashing or if you are runing with a series light bulb it may be cycling on and off continuously. There may be a chirping or clicking sound from inside the set. (Note: using too small a series light bulb load during testing for the size of the TV may also result in this condition.)

If there is a low voltage regulator or separate switching supply, it could be cycling on and off if the horizontal output, flyback, or one of its secondary loads were defective.

Does this TV have a separate low voltage regulator and/or switching power supply or is it all part of the flyback circuit? For the following, I assume it is all in one (most common).

Some simple things to try first:

Verify that the main filter capacitor is doing its job. Excessive ripple on the rectified line voltage bus can cause various forms of shutdown behavior. An easy test is to jumper across the capacitor with one of at least equal voltage rating and similar capacitance (make connections with power off!).

Use a Variac, if possible, to bring up the input voltage slowly and see if the TV works at any point without shutting down. If it does, this could be an indication of X-ray protection circuit kicking in, though this will usually latch and keep the set shut off if excessive HV were detected.

Dvd got stuck wont come out

Hello,

something must have hung the disk tray from pulling out, this also will not make the DVD come out.

The best you can do is to open up the unit, locate the disc tray, remove the stuck DVD disk, check the DVD mechanism to see if anythings is retraining the disc tray from pulling out and I believe the problem would be solved.

Open up the unit and do some troubleshooting on the DVD section of the player and everything is going to be alright.

Good luck.

My toshiba tv/vcr/dvd combo wont play dvd's

No. Usually it will cost you more money than gettting it fixed. If I make a suggestion. I would get a stand alone dvd, because if the dvd goes out in the television then the tv may not work.

Look at older disks and see if they are R- or R+ your dvd player may only read one type or the other. Look at new disks and see if they are R- and R+ disks. Some DVD players read both some only one type.

After years of working fine,

Try unplugging it for few minutes then plug it back in and try to eject the dvd, if it doesn't then turn it off and turn it back on while repeatedly pressing on the eject button in the front of the unit. Region code error could be because the dvd you have is different region than what your set can play. make sure you only use dvd's that are ment for your region and that the player can play, those are noted on the user manual. If the problem comes up with any dvd, even with previously worked discs, then the issue could be a dirty lens, you could try a dvd lens cleaner, and blowing canned air directly on to the lens to get the dust off of it. You might want to blow the dust out from the unit if there appears to be dust inside first by blowing the air all around the unit. then proceed with blowing directly to the laser lens and possibly use a dvd lens cleaner disc, if you where to take the unit apart, you could clean the lens with a qtip with alcohol. Note that if you are in warranty taking apart the unit will most likely void the warranty, if you are in warranty you might want to get in touch with your dealer about it.

SAME TOSHIBA MW24FP1 WILL NOT LET ME INSERT A VHS TAPE

You will need to clean the DVD /VCR . It has accumulated dust and dirt in the mechanism and cannot operate normally. This may be only a cleaning job and not a electronic repair. You will need to have the television opened to clean it. You should completely clean all the components in the combination unit. You will need to check and make sure all belts and gears are in good shape and working correctly. Check out the entire television and make sure everything looks good and ready for use. This will save you from having to open the unit again, later to repair and clean the components. This cleaning can be accomplished with compressed air and brushes to clean the circuit boards and mechanisms of all dust and debris. Use small amounts of isopropyl alcohol on cotton swabs to clean off stubborn dirt and dust. After cleaning let the television complete dry and then try using the VCR and see if it works. If it still has a problem and you are sure you have check it out completely you may need the help of a service center to figure out the problem. The Toshiba customer service telephone number is 1-800-631-3811. Call them and ask them where the nearest authorized service center is in your area. You can call them and ask them if they give you a estimate of the repair costs for your model television combination unit. You can then decide if it is cost efficient to have the unit repaired. I hope this information helps you solve your problem.
