Tosh 50WT29 Power problem...ideas?

Had the screen for 18 months, no problem....just settled down to watch the new Matrix dvd and the screen went off! (No popping sounds, just blanked out)

Power/standby light is still on and when you press the remote power button, the set makes all the usual power up/down noises but I don't even get a flicker on the screen.

I've removed all the cables, left it powered off for an hour...still no joy.
Anyone know if this is a sign that the lamps have gone?! I know you have to replace them, but i thought the picture would gradually degrade or one would go...but all three together?!

ANY help/advice appreciated.......

Cheers.....Adam

Cant imagine that all 3 would go at the same time...more likely is some sort of PSU or similar problem.....either way,the only way is to get the dealer out,or call Toshiba.

Hope it's not a sign...mine is about 12mths old!

I'll let you know. Have a dealer collecting the set this week...for the princely sum of £75 callout!!
Reckons it is a PSU problem also.

Good luck.....so far both my Tosh's(the RPTV and an old 28" TV)have been very reliable,with the only repair being a new tube for the 28" set after the kids wore it out!
