Customer Question

I recently purchased a toshiba 42HL167 LCD tv. It is a 2007 model used. The picture looks great. However the tv just goes to a black screen. You can hear the audio but there is no picture. If you cut it off the picture returns for a few minutes and then goes back to black. I do not have a manuel to look for a problem solving page. hope you can help me.

Hello , my name is Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first I must say that even with a manual (that I can get you shortly by the way ) , this is not the type of problem that will have a solution in the manual.
That being said ;
When this happens ,Is the screen just blank with some background light or completely dark like when the tv is off ?
Can you see the tv`s own menu for example ?

no cannot see menu or anything. can hear audio
Expert:  Jack replied 2 years ago.
I just received your additional service request however there are a few additional services like " full repair assistance" or " phone call" that would be applicable here .
Which did you have in mind and also note that there is a fee of $12 that comes with the additional service offer.
In any case right now this would be the best way to proceed as I will have links to give you depending on your answer to the next question;
Did you wish to look into this yourself or simply would like to have an idea of what is involved and the costs of repair ?
Let me know and i will help you along if you wish to look into repairing this yourself .

Not getting this tv repaired will take it back.

Ok then , I`m sorry but you were looking at a set of inverter boards that you can see at the link below;
If you ever decide to change your mind and buy those for $50 , let me know and I will help you along.
