20 Most Recent Toshiba 42LX177 42 in. LCD HDTV Questions & Answers


Its a failing LCD driver, not a lot you can do about it unfortunately, eventually it will get worse. Usually lines or dots are a bad driver board, but sometimes its also a bad flex cable on the LCD. Being 2 years old you probably don't have warranty, but if you do have extended warranty file a claim now, its only going to get worse, and there is no quick or easy fix.

I had the same issue... here's what I did.  If power off your cable box, then press the menu button, there's a selection to enable or disable Closed Captioning.  This works for both HD series Motorola boxes Comcast offers, at least in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  Hope this helps!

You have to activate the closed caption option on your charter cable box. Power off your cable box and immediately push the menu button. A menu should appear where you can toggle captioning on/off. Good luck!

if the comcast box is not hd then the control is with your tv/remote.
If the comcast box is hd, then you can control it from the comcast remote. To do this press cable, then power and in 2 seconds press menu to get to the hidden hd setup menu, scroll down to closed captions and set it to enabled or disabled then press power twice to get back to you rtv

Things are not so simple. Your universal remote control may not be compatible. Use code search to find out. All URCs do not contain all possible codes for all devices.

Use code search.

The TV's main culprits to be causing this problem are "dynamic contrast" which maybe darkening the backl light in dark scenes an example a night time or a dark scene in a movie. To make the blacks be deeper (as LCD/LED TV are rubbish at blacks) or brighten it on bright scenes to make the light be lighter and once again to make the blacks be deeper so the images pop out. Also "eco lighting" this will dim or brighten the image based on the amount of light in a room in order to be saving energy. Ether way the easy fix is to turn both of these features off. You will get rid of the problem and enjoy more subtler shades of colour that would otherwise be bleached (brightend) or crushed(darkend) out..

Try this. It might work or it might not

1. Open the tray
2. press the following sequence using the number keys: 98790 (this is equivalent to the code 9879 with the zero at the end representing all regions)
3. Press Close Tray - there should be a sign on the TV screen saying something like 'Region set to 0'
4. Turn off the DVD player for 5 seconds
5. Turn on the DVD player.

You will have to disassemble the unit to get access to and remove the stuck tape. Keep track of the disassembly process for reassembly with no parts left over.

Use code search on the URC to find something that works. If a search through all codes stored in your One for All fails, try a different URC. All URCs do not contain all possible codes.

The trouble with the video cassette recorder is it is full of rubber components - belts and wheels that don't age well, though it is doubtful that is the only problem.

Capacitors too, often don't age well, especially if the unit could have been subjected to high summer temperatures or freezing winter temperatures but again that probably wouldn't render the machine completely unresponsive.

It should be possible to remove the top cover of a front loader and turn the mechanism by hand to remove the tape but putting it back into working order should be left to a professional. There is often an internal fuse and it could be worth checking that...

Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. https://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience. If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

Your repair guy is right. An 86" Samsung LED is the way to go.
