We all know how frustrating it is when you are about to turn your TV on to watch your favorite show which is about to start, then suddenly your television won’t start anymore. Here in Richmond, I have encounter a lot of customers who are complaining about their Toshiba TV sets. These people are grumbling about their TVs not turning on.

If you are one of these people who are undergoing this similar dilemma right now, then you might as well try these simple steps which I am going to tell you. By following these methods, you may get your TV working before you can spend a single penny having a repairman fix it for you.

You can carry out a few DIY TV repair first to determine the best thing you should do with your television set. Below, you’ll find some methods which you can follow to check if it is really indispensable for you to call a TV repair shop in your area or if you can just definitely handle the problem.

If you have a television at home, a Toshiba for example and it is not turning on, there could be various circumstances that might be causing it. A defective power source, a broken remote control or a broken TV itself can probably be the reasons why it’s not working.  Before deciding to have a technician repair your television, try the following steps first to help you fix your Toshiba TV.

1.       Check your television’s power button. Push the button several times until the LED lights would respond already.

2.       If the power button is working fine, you can also check the remote control. A busted remote control is a usual reason. When you have a defective remote control, it will not be able to send any signal to the main TV anymore. You can try changing your remote control with a new set of batteries. Proceed to the next step if the remote control is working properly.

3.       Test all the power connections. Validate if all the needed cords and plugs are appropriately in place to ensure that there are no power interruptions or anything hindering the flow of current to your Toshiba TV. Ensure that all sockets are operating and all cords are in good condition.

4.       Try the dedicated power switch. Nearly all Toshiba TVs have a built-in power switch that totally turns the TV off, instead of leaving it on sleep mode. To verify 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.

5.       Now it’s time to test the TV’s capacitor. Cautiously open the back panel of your TV and confirm if the capacitors are not puffed-up. If they look like they have swollen, it means that the capacitor is broken and needs a replacement. Typically, it takes a licensed technician to repair this. However, if you think that you can try to do the repair, you still have to bear in mind that it is essential to fix the TV supervised by someone who knows a thing or two about the process.

6.       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 all set to use. Nevertheless, if the problem still persists, then it would be the right time to let a professional technician have a look at your TV and fix it for you.
