Question about Toshiba 43H70 43" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

43H70 43 in. Rear Projection Television

I received this set from a friend. He said that it started acting up several months ago. The picture would go out, and he would have to unplug the set for a few minutes, then plug it back in. Eventually it wouldn't come back on at all. I've read several posts about changing the convergence chips, but most of those posters state that the power light blinks slow. I plugged this one in and turned it on for 4 or 5 minutes, and no blinking. By buddy said that he still had sound, but no picture. When I do power it on, I can hear what sounds like a normal TV powering up, and I also hear the speakers power on. Suggestions? Thanks.

    I got this set from my parents last month. It's six or seven years old. I know they used it a lot but never had any problems with picture or sound which were very good. I haven't used it that much, but have had the situation where I turn it on and hear sound with no picture. The remote is fine. The power indicator light which is usually on bright and solid now flashes or is dim and solid. I thought of unplugging it for a while thinking something might reset, but now I wonder if it's worth repairing -- or is anyone going to know what the real problem is anyway since as good as the sound is still, there is no picture.

Unable to get sound and when watching a movie the picture is in B/W and not color. I have unplugged and replugged this unit several times with same issues.

Check that you have not damaged the cable connections when plugging it in and out. It's very easy to bend the pins on some connectors out of place.

This is along shot but you may have picked up a virus a few months ago, do a full system scan, also download malwarebytes anti-malware and do a full scan, if nothing shows up consider a full windows operational install, I have found in some cases it fixes the video problem.

When you unplugged it, did you leave it unplugged for 10 full long seconds and press any button for that 10 full seconds as well, then wait a few more before plugging it back in? That is the correct procedure. If that still doesn't work, then either the firmware needs to be updated, or there is a faulty IC chip in the device that will need to be replaced.

Hello, You have a high voltage section problem I would not suggest fixing this set on your own. You will need to take this set to the shop. Because there are no user repairable parts inside of the set.
