Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello , my name is JackPerhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions like the TV's model numberso could you please send me a reply when you see this ?
Yes , not a typing machine here but a tv tech. you have to give me time to type
You said that all the boards inside were replaced, I would take it that we are talking about the MAIN board POWER SUPPLY board and then possibly the T-con and LED backlight inverter board if separate from the power supply .
Can you confirm any of those boards or you simply don`t know which ones ?
Was this all done under warranty ?
O.k and those were the last boards replaced , is that correct ?
Yes I was getting to that and to tell you frankly this does not make much sense unless there is an electrical problem in your house .
Correct me if I`m wrong but the electrical supply where you are is 220 volts ?
Right now none of it make much sense as far as troubleshooting goes unless there is an inherent problem with this model , something like a manufacturer`s defect that either gets corrected by some software update or replacement parts update.
Difficult to say which of the boards is the culprit here but one would be tempted to say that the power board is the problem if that disappeared after switching power outlet ???
Now you are telling me the main board replacement also worked ???
Even more puzzling
Now what I would have as a suggestion is this ;
This tv can operate on multi-system and voltages and pulls only 149 watts so what I would suggest is for you to buy a step down transformer that can handle 200 watts + and run the tv on 120 volts to see if that will make any changes
Here is an example of such a transformer ;
That one is 300 watts but anything above 250 watts will be fine if you connect only the tv on it
O.k then let me know and we`ll take it from there
By the way , as this could take a while could you please use the rating system now so I get compensated for my time with you and in any case you can come back here at any time after rating at no extra costs if you have questions, even 6 months from now if needed .
In that case one of those 2 boards went defective again and it means parts replacement again .
If you are up to that the start with the power board again but to tell you frankly I would consider looking at other TV's
Not sure how much you paid for those boards but I can tell you that you can get a new 40" tv nowadays for around 250 to $300
Sorry but this would call for meters and voltage monitoring and obviously I can`t do that , I will opt out and repost your question , may be someone here will have an idea
No problem , standby
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done) is to make use of a voltage regulator. The idea is to stabilize the input voltage even before it enters the Toshiba. This would serve as both an attempt of a fix and as a test by process of elimination.
If still not corrective, then yes; it would be an internal hardware issue (again).
