Top 20 Toshiba 42LX177 42 in. LCD HDTV Questions & Answers


Its a failing LCD driver, not a lot you can do about it unfortunately, eventually it will get worse. Usually lines or dots are a bad driver board, but sometimes its also a bad flex cable on the LCD. Being 2 years old you probably don't have warranty, but if you do have extended warranty file a claim now, its only going to get worse, and there is no quick or easy fix.

if the comcast box is not hd then the control is with your tv/remote.
If the comcast box is hd, then you can control it from the comcast remote. To do this press cable, then power and in 2 seconds press menu to get to the hidden hd setup menu, scroll down to closed captions and set it to enabled or disabled then press power twice to get back to you rtv

You have to activate the closed caption option on your charter cable box. Power off your cable box and immediately push the menu button. A menu should appear where you can toggle captioning on/off. Good luck!

I had the same issue... here's what I did.  If power off your cable box, then press the menu button, there's a selection to enable or disable Closed Captioning.  This works for both HD series Motorola boxes Comcast offers, at least in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  Hope this helps!

the power led may be flashing a code you can google.
My Panny will flash the power LED when there is a problem. Well, for many problems anyway. Observe the sequence like 7 and 3. I do not know if the Toshiba has that feature. If not, the issue is most likely power, HOWEVER, any board could be at fault since it powers up then shuts down. An excessive load on another board could be shutting it down. A fault on the PS board itself could also be shutting it down.

You might have gotten a magnet close to it but you can't fix it if you did that

It sounds like the main internal power supply has gone south. Your best bet would be to take it into a TV repair shop and determine if it would be an inexpensive repair. Usually repairs on the newer TV's can run higher then replacing the TV with a newer model.

The LED on the left blinking green 3 times is power-up, the LED on the right blinking green 3 times is what Toshiba calls a "BUS Error" which basically means a hardware fault.
