If your Toshiba TV is not turning on, it could be caused by several factors, such as a broken remote control, a defective power source, or the TV itself broke down. Before calling your local television technician for help, check out the following steps to help you repair your Toshiba TV.
- Check the power button. Push the power button several times to see if the LED lights would respond to the command.
- Check if the remote control is working. Usually, if you have a busted remote control, it will not send any signal or command to the main TV. Check if you still have enough battery power as well. If your remote seems to be working properly, proceed to the next step.
- Check all power connections. Confirm if all the necessary cords and plugs are properly in place to make sure that there are no power interruptions or anything obstructing the flow of current to your Toshiba TV. Make sure that all sockets are working and all cords are in good condition.
- Check the dedicated power switch. Most Toshiba TVs have a built in power switch that completely turns the TV off, instead of leaving it on sleep mode. To check if the main power switch is off, you can take a look at the back of the TV and look for a small black switch. If the rocker switch is turned on and the TV still won’t respond it means that you need to try another troubleshooting step.
- It’s time to check the Toshiba TV’s capacitor. Carefully open the back panel of your TV and check if the capacitors are not swollen. If they look like they have expanded, it means that the capacitor is broken and needs a replacement. Usually it takes a licensed technician to repair this. But if you are confident that you can do it, it is still important to fix the TV supervised by someone who knows a thing or two about fixing TVs.
- Check the power supply. Make sure that your power supply is sending the appropriate voltage to the TV’s inverters. Also, check the signal board to verify if it is in the correct setting, if the setting is wrong it means that the power is not sufficient or more than the required amount of energy to power the TV.
Your television should now be ready to use. However, if the problem persists, then it would be high time to let us have a look at your TV and fix it for you. If you’re in this situation, give us a call right now on 1300 899 963 and we’ll get your TV fixed right away, so you can return to enjoying your favourite shows.
