I have a toshiba LED tv with a dark screen. The front led stays green all the time, but no sound or picture. I also can't turn the tv off with the remote. I have to unplug it to power it off.

Hi again Mike and welcome back to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the new question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...


Initially, have you tried turning the Toshiba On/Off with P803 disconnected ?

TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 2 years ago
Based on the described symptom and the no-change even with P803 disconnected, then the main board would be highly suspect.

What is the board number of the main board please?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

ok I found something. SCR1, part number BT169DH, is measuring short from pin 1 to pin 3. The data sheet shows pin 1 being anode and pin 3 being cathode.

TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 2 years ago
Nice find. This SCR serves as a switch.

Would you attempt to replace SCR1 or the whole board?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

I removed the part and it measures fine out of circuit. When measuring from anode to cathode with part removed it still measures short. Since I can't find a schematic it will be hard to diagnose the part. There is a transformer next to it, can they short out?

TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 2 years ago
Yes but unlikely that this transformer would have shorted. If so, there would be physical sign(s). Chances are that the SCR is tied in parallel to a transformer's winding hence the 0Ω initial reading.

The reason that a part of nor the whole power supply board was not considered a primary suspect is based on "...tested the voltages and they are all there..."

On the otherhand, the reasons that the main board was suspected are:
  • power LED stays green - main board is locked in a mode/function;
  • • can't turn the tv off with the remote - hence CPU/logic circuit is not functioning;
  • 0v on BLON - which is sent by the main board when turning On.

What is the board number of the main board please?

I found the main board on here, but it is sold out.

TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 2 years ago
Unfortunately, it is also out-of-stock with almost all the other online sellers.

Please post back how you would want to approach this and/or should additional information be needed.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

Not much I can do but wait until a board is available.

TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 2 years ago
I understand. Please post back with an update when able. Cheers.
