TV made a load pop. Then picture went out. Has sound but no picture.
If the lamp does not make it work the next problem in line is the ballast board- board is number 23122468 list is $173 at www.pacparts.com and you will recieve $47 core charge if you return your bad board to them- If you want to fix the ballast board- replace resistor R3 with 1000 ohm -1/4 watt (radio shack)( usually burns open- and diodes D2 &D3- (usually shorts one)- part # fmv-2gs available at www.tristatemodule.com for $2.02 each and tristatemodule will buy burned out lamps for $7-$8 each with thier housing.
The very first thing you can check is the lamp,the set needs to be unpluged while you do it,the lamp might have exploded and it happens for no reason and is the only thing you can check safely.If is bad you can order it from toshiba,item number TB25-LMP,price shown is 199.00.If the lamp is ok you will need the assistance of a servicer.
