Ok Bobber lets try something unplug the tv set from the wall, open up the back cover of the tv set and check the fuse that is close to where the power cord is coming into your tv set let me know if that fuse is good,just be carefull.

Ok that tv set has 4 fuses the thing about it is they are located in different areas of the tv

 

sets main board,i am pretty sure it is one of the fuses,ok check on the circuit board itself

 

do the components have # XXXXX the side of them that you can see,the # XXXXX look

 

something like this c115 on the side let me know

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
all the components have numbers on them
Expert:  Livep9 replied 5 years ago.

 

 

 

Ok check the # XXXXX that i am about to give on the main board and all around if you can not

 

find them do not worry,just try,F850&F851&F470&F890 check them let me know what

 

you find.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
i could only find f470 it looked good
Expert:  Livep9 replied 5 years ago.

 

 

 

OkCustomeryou can go to this link to see if you can find the schematic diagram for

 

your tv sets main circuit board so it can pin point where are the other fuses, and like that

 

you can go ahead and see if one of them is open and change it out,if for some reason

 

you can not find the schematic diagram for your tv set,you can try contacting toshiba

 

and see if they can pin point you to where the other fuses are at and if for some reason

 

this does not work take it to your nearest repair shop to get the tv serviced,depending on

 

the tv repair shop it should not be more than 150 dollars to get your tv set up and

 

running.
