I have a 27a32 lcd hd toshiba tv. It will not turn on. In the bottom right hand corner of the front of the tv a red light is blinking. It says "recording timer". This is all I can get to happen. The cable box is fine, and I changed out the power strips. All the capacitors are also fine. Help...what else can I look for?
Capacitors are fine. Tried new power strip. Cable box comes on. Red light indicating timer recoding continues to blink on and off. When you try to power up...nothing happens.
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only... Initially, please reconfirm the Toshiba's model number; 27a32 or 42lx196.Offhand, unplug (again) for an extended period of time, say an hour or so. The idea is to discharge whatever residual power may be inside. Thereafter plug back in and determine:
Sorry...I checked the panel and it is a 42lx96. The other number came off of the owners manual.
I understand and appreciate the confirmation.Please perform above proposed test and post back results.
I will do this tomorrow and get back to you with the results.
Appreciate the post back and would look forward to an update when able.41093.0970772338
I have left it unplug overnight and plugged the TV in this morning and the red light indicating recoding timer immediately came on again. Unable to power up the TV.
Any other ideas??
The above was a test and the result is very significant as it points to the power supply circuitry Part Number 75003371 as the most likely suspect. It is an internal hardware issue. The unit would have to be opened up for visual inspection, voltage measurements, confirm fault and effect repairs.Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? Are you familiar with electronic components, have access to / comfortable in the use of a multimeter and perhaps even a soldering iron/hot-air station? Please post back how you would want to approach this and/or should additional information be needed.
I am comfortable in doing it myself and am familiar with soldering. When I bring up a picture of this part number that you mentioned, it seems to me that it is the whole board, or is it just a part on that board? If I see this correctly, all I would have to do is unplug everything and replace the board. Am I correct in doing this?
Yes, it is a plug-in board.A new board may be inquired HERE while the old power supply board may be sent in for repairs HERE. Click on the links to evaluate. A refurbished/pull out board may be inquired from ShopJimmy HERE but currently is out of stock.Would any of the aboive be an acceptable approach?
