I was watching Directv on my Toshiba TN61X81 and the screen just went off but the sound continued and the Power LED stayed on. Tried other inputs and even tried Demo Button but nothing appears on the screen. When I turn the power off, I get a quick horizontal flash in the middle of the screen. I was thinking that perhaps the lamp died. If you can help me troubleshoot this it would be much appreciated
I have had this TV for almost 10 years and never had an issue until now. So no lamp. I was hoping it might be something simple. I have never needed to open it up to even look inside. So if I cannot fix it fairly cheaply (< $300), the next question is, am I better off saving the repair money and buying something new? I assume it will be fairly expensive to fix since it is about 300 lbs and will require a tech to come out and check it out.
