Green power light comes on for a few seconds then

The protector circuit is keeping the high voltage from turning on. It is probably not worth fixing.

TIVO Series 2 Toshiba SD-H400

Sounds like the hard drive may be going on your Tivo. Seeing that the hard drives in tivo units are constantly working: buffering incoming live tv data, writing your season passes, playing back recorded programs and erasing old unwanted programs, the hard drives used in tivos are bound to develop bad sectors or corrupt data at some point in time. Whether it be freezing, pixellization, random reboots, or everyone's favorite GSOD (Green Screen of Death), your tivo has many ways of letting you know your hard drive may be in jeopardy.
So for those of you who have the time and technical prowess, here's how to find out if your drive has kicked the bucket and if all of your episodes of Battlestar Galactica have been lost with no chance of recovery.

If you are using a Seagate drive, you can download Seagate's diagnostic tools here (http://www.seagate.com/support/seatools/)

If you are using a Maxtor drive, you can download Maxtor's diagnostic tools here (http://www.maxtor.com/portal/site/Maxtor/menuitem.3c67e325e0a6b1f6294198b091346068/?channelpath=%2Fen_us%2FSupport%2FSoftware+Downloa ds%2FView+By+Category%2FDesktop+Storage%2FMaxtor+O ther%2FDiagnostics&downloadID=22)

If you are using a Western Digital drive, you can download Western Digital's diagnostic tools here (http://support.wdc.com/download/index.asp?cxml=n&pid=999&swid=3)

and finally, for the few folks that might have a Samsung drive, go here (http://www.samsung.com/support/productsupport/download/Model_Select.aspx?type=HDD&typecode=300300&subtype=HDD&subtypecode=300301&model=SV1203N&filetype=SW&language=) to download Samsung's diagnostic tool

Let me know how this turns out

Old 1995 Big screen T.V.

You need a manual convergence youd have to open it up clean the color guns properly and throuroughly and manually adjust the color guns to the proper setting. maybe even any mirrors for deflection if any.

Greeting inmiltown,

It sounds like your approaching the end of your lamp's life. Most projection televisions have internal lamp timers. These lamp timers usually give you time to buy a new bulb before it needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

How can you get to the menu on a Toshiba tv without a remote

If you do not have a remote for your Toshiba TV, there are a few ways you can access the menu to change settings or perform other functions:
  1. Use the buttons on the TV: Some Toshiba TVs have buttons on the side or back of the TV that can be used to access the menu or perform other functions. Check the TV's manual or the label on the back of the TV to see if this is the case for your TV and which buttons to use.
  2. Use a universal remote: You can purchase a universal remote that is compatible with your Toshiba TV. These remotes can be programmed to control your TV, and can be used to access the menu and other functions.
  3. Connect a keyboard or mouse to the TV: If your TV has a USB port, you can connect a keyboard or mouse to the TV and use it to navigate the menu and other functions.
  4. Use a mobile app: Some Toshiba TVs can be controlled using a mobile app that can be downloaded to your smartphone or tablet. This app allows you to control your TV and access the menu without needing a remote.

Toshiba 50L2200U Won't Turn On

There could be an issue here with both the power supply and also an internal problem as well with your TV. The outlet that your TV is plugged into could be the issue here then.
