Toshiba 46ZF355D - Dead
« on: January 07, 2015, 10:17:42 am »
Hello,

I bought this TV as faulty, apparently not powering up.

I've not yet tried it, but took the back off, nothing seems visibly failed.

However, the one thing that amazed me was the sheer build quality of the thing - not only does it weigh around 17 metric tonnes (OK, perhaps slightly less), but seems built to a high standard.

Dedicated audio amp board, decent sized speakers, Rubycon main caps.

Some (poor) images below:











Obviously, the first thing is going to be to clean everything up and start metering, but has anyone seen failures on this PSU before?

Cheers!

That doesn't give us much to run with.
Standby light?
Standby PSU running?
LCD backlight failed?
Any Audio?

If your nervous about plugging it in make a dim bulb tester with a bulb watt rating about the same or a bit more than the TV's rated wattage.
That'll allow you to power it without it going bang.

How does the dim bulb tester work?

Cheers!

If I am correct, you put an incandescent bulb in series with the mains input, the increasing resistance of the bulb as it takes more current means if the device is a dead short (and the bulb lights up) you won't blow too much stuff up!
If the device under test is ok the light bulb goes out.
Whoah! Watch where that landed we might need it later.

Nearly right.
If the DUT is OK the bulb will glow dim.
Do some tests on working appliances to get a "feel" for it.
Google Dim Bulb Tester.
