    Can anyone help with my two Toshiba RPTV's? 43VJ13P & 43WH18B. Both are stuck on standby once switched on, but if you give them a kick they come on eventually. Seems to be a very common fault, any help would be appreciated.

    hi, can't be a dry joint, as spent a day blanket soldering. Any ideas on testing for dry capacitors?

    If your're saying the set will come on if you give it a knock it is most probably a dry joint.

    If it comes on itself after a warm-up period it is likely to be a high esr capacitor somewhere in the power supply stage and I suggest you call in an engineer.

    Im having the same problem only thing is it doesnt switch on by taping or it warming up. you turn it on you hear the power supply click then a few seconds later it clicks again. could i be having a power supply issue or main board fault which is common?
    kind regards mark
