    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!
