Check the speaker. Perhaps the IC for sound is bad or the supply is lost.

Something has gone inside the set. These units have so many safety circuits it is hard to say what section of the set is having problems. I personally start with the horizontal/high voltage circuit because this is the heart beat of the set. Have a repair shop check it out for you. These are good sets and are worth a check out charge. Thanks for using fixya. Hope this helps.

Should be pretty simple mate, go to your menu on the remote and look for set up. from there follow on screen direction. It may pay you to tinker with the menu to find where and what you want to do.

Yes, it's quite possible that you indeed may have sufferd from a Power Spike, induced by lightning during the storm, esspecially if plugged in during said storm. I have had quite a few customers ova the years with this exact problem. I always advise my clients to unplug ALL devices during a storm, and for ones that simply cannot be unplugged then some sort of Spike/Surge Protection device MUST be used. As a matter of interest, I have written many a report to insurance companies to support a claim for a replacement.

I just purchased this TV and when I changed the channel a black box pops up in the middle of the screen, I have to press the freeze button twice in order to take it off. How do I keep it off permenately

1st things first, as I always say....

1. Check your soldering around the vertical section. Most sets have defects in thier soldering of the components under the board, with time. Especially true of RCA and Zenith sets, but all makes are not exempt! Again, check this first and fix as necessary.

2. Look for one or more electrolytic capacitors in the vertical section, maybe around 100uf 35v ,1uf 50v or a 220uf 35v or similar values. Change these, even if they look physically ok., observing the polarity of each. Most of the repairs I do involve these components. They fail with time and change value. Higher value caps , like 1000uf, 2200uf, etc., are usually not the reason for vertical troubles, just to note.

Further steps, if needed:

3. You might even have a shorted or open diode next to the vertical chip. It is usually black with a gray stripe on it. Be sure to replace it with the same polarity as the old one- the "stripe: denotes the cathode side of the diode. Do not get it backwards, (important!) - follow the "arrow" symbol on the board... you can check the diode with most multimeters. It should read in only one direction as a rule of thumb. If it's shorted, you'll get a reading in both directions, and if open, no reading of course. You can use most generic, 1 amp diodes (not zeners) to replace it, I found.

4. Your vertical chip itself may be bad, but you'll usually get a line straight across if it is. If after doing the above with no result, you may want to change it.

Good luck...

I have seen a similar problem. get to design mode (that trick with the remote mute & the set menu button) & look for a data address in the audio section that is set to all (F)s. sorry i can't remember the exact address. you could always just guess just make sure you write down where they are currently set .
Hope this helps.

Replace the SAW Filter.

Toshiba 19A26... • Answered on Jan 23, 2008

Your right! Replace all the caps around/connected to, the vertical output IC. 100uf etc. Vertical IC is mounted on heat sink near yoke connector.

Sounds like some thing short circuit at its circuit board. Short circuit protection activates, as the set is switched on. Contact any service technician to check and find out the fault. This is not a user repairable fault. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ https://elektrotricks.blogspot.com/ faults & possible causes to LCD screen are given with illustrations. You can get an idea about the fault to an extent. Search the site by type in the brand name and model of your set, in its search bar at the right side column, and press enter.

How old is the TV? Does it have a marketplace of apps that came preloaded? Is there a search button in that screen? If so search for the app, you can also search for Amazon prime Video App that comes with Hulu.

The CT877 remote was included with several Toshiba TVs, including the 26DF56. Thus the programming codes for the remote are in the TV manual on pages 16-17. This manual is available on the support page: https://support.dynabook.com/support/staticContentDetail?contentId=2844172&isFromTOCLink=false . The current link to the manual is https://content.us.dynabook.com/content/support/manuals/userguides/su2844172/xxdf56_om_e.pdf . It does not have any codes to control other TVs. A universal remote that was programmed six months after your Spectre TV was manufactured would probably be a better solution for you. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells
