Question about Toshiba 57HX83 57" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Switches on then off then on then off...

A few months ago my tv started this one. I switch it on and sometimes it stays on for a minute or so then the screen goes blank, sometimes the screen remains blank from the start. After another minute it shows the channel its tuned to on the screen but no picture and I have to turn it off and on. After two or three times of this it comes on and stays on - the picture (when it arrives) is perfect. Is this a power supply problem and can I fix it myself without blowing up the neighbours' homes as well?

The first thing to try is to see if your set has loose conections,you need to remove the back and tap in diffrent areas of the chassis to see if it reacts,if it does you'll know soemthing is loose and it has to be resoldered,if you are familiar with tv service you will have a place to start checking but if you are not too familiar seek the assistance of a servicer,the repair should not be expensive.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.

    If you decided to go in looking for a loose conection the set will have to be plug in turned on,be careful with high voltage areas.

If you've changed it's location or added speakers, or placed anything on top of it since the problem started then consider that it may just be over heating.

Tv switches off and on

If lamp is good, Did you reset lamp hours? That should be done. Reset instructions are different for different brand tv's.
If you have reset the lamp hour counter, then test the ballast and the power supply to make sure they are sending out a constant voltage and current reading.

SHARP LC 32GA8E

Have disconnected DVD player and it seems at this stage to have corrected the problem. Early days and so I am just keeping my fingers crossed that the problem was with the DVD player and not the TV.

TV Shuts off, Screen Problems

The problem could be the power supply, the flyback trasformer or simply a bad connection. A repair cost for this TV set could run any where from 75 bucks all the way up to 225 or so, depending on the problem. Good Luck
