How should I go about troubleshooting my Toshiba TV that isn't working?


Answer by  thelostone (1457)

Unless you are trained in TV repairman you will probably only be able to check the on off switch and see if that is working. Otherwise find a professional.

Check the connections from the TV to the cable/electricity. Sometimes even if it's plugged in, a mouse could have chewed through the cords, etc. Try the buttons on the TV and the remote, if neither work, hook up your TV to your computer and see if you can get an image through there. If not, call Toshiba's hotline.

First, try to find the manual that came with your TV - there is usually a troubleshooting section in the back. If you don't have your manual, or the manual does not address your problem, google the specific model number of your TV, someone on the internet may have had the same problem and found a solution.

Some Toshiba TV's have problems with not turning on... they begin to function but they turn off right away. If this is your problem, the first thing to look at is your power supply. Take your TV to a repair shop and have them take a look. If something is wrong, you will have to replace the power supply.

Check for any unplugged cables or cords. Next, make sure you are in the right video mode. Using source or input. Make sure audio cable isn't plugged into video socket.

Well, check to see if the wires are in properly. If not, then see if there is a defect. Call toshiba customer service for assistance. They will help you diagnose the problem.
