Toshiba 22DL833B, 22DL834B, 24D1333B, 24D1333B2 and 24D1433DB TV Repairs - Turned off by itself, now no power/dead or stuck on flashing standby light

March 15, 2016

The latest batch of Toshiba TV models appear to have similar problems to the 22BL702B/19DL502B/22DL702B/22DL704B range.

The models 22DL833B, 22DL834B, 24DL1333B, 24DL1333B2 and 24DL1433DB all have a common fault where they will suddenly turn off while on and then lose power becoming completely dead. They may also decide just not to turn on one day with a flashing standby light. Although 24" and similar size TVs don't cost the Earth these days - they are even cheaper to repair. Plus its one les...

Pioneer KRP500P Plasma TV repair - 8 blue standby flashes

December 4, 2015
Pioneer TVs, compared to other TV manufacturers, tend to be much more of a challenge to repair, and their pricing strategy for spares tend to raises questions whether they even want their TVs to be repairable at a reasonable and sane price.

However if we can get down to component repair, such as in this case, then it becomes much more affordable.
The Pioneer KRP-500P display is a solid bit of tech, though with all TVs, can go wrong. If your Pioneer KRP-500P intermittently won't turn on and give...

LG 42LS575T Led tv intermittent no picture/backlight repair (sound ok)

November 2, 2015
We have had a few LG 42LS575T led tvs in recently with all similar issues. While surprising to see such young tvs already appearing in our repair shop, it is encouraging to see that they are quite repairable and at what I believe to be at an affordable cost. 

If your tv is suffering from loosing its picture, while the sound stays on ok, then it is worth us (or any other professional tv engineer) having a look as we could save you from having to pay out for a brand new tv. Initially the picture...

Backlight/No Picture Repair on LG Tv models 32LN5400ZALG, 47LN5400ZALG and 50LN575VZE

October 29, 2015
We can now source the screen components required to repair LG tv models that suffer from no picture/no backlights issues (but the sound comes on ok).

LG (and other manufacturers) have long denied tv engineers the parts required for this economical repair which meant a lot of tvs got unnecessarily thrown out at the dump by people. It is very encouraging to see LG and Samsung now starting to supply screen components and hopefully others will follow suit.

Please note that LG do not yet supply scre...

Evotel ELCD40USBFHD no power/dead - repair

March 19, 2015
The Evotel brand may not be a well known brand, but they do the job of sound and vision just fine. However, if you have a tendency to turn these off at night then they can get intermittent power switch issues, eventually resulting in a power fault.

We have the parts in stock and can do a quick turn around on repair.


Known Affected Models:

Evotel ELCD26USBFHD
Evotel ELCD32USBFHD
Evotel ELCD40USBFHD

Bush LCD40883F1080P not turning on - repair

March 19, 2015
These 40" LCD tvs tend to get issues after 3 years due to some sub-stand components. However, they give a very good HD picture pound for pound and have plenty of connection ports.

If your Bush LCD40883F1080P is not turning on, with the white standby light briefly flashing off and then back on, then it may have the same issue to what we have seen come into the repair shop.

If you want to bring it in for repair then we will upgrade the components and potentially save you £100 or more on a new tv...

We now accept card payments!

March 13, 2015
Ok, so this is a little bit out of date as we have had a card machine for a few months now!

We can take payments in shop and over the phone, however there is a charge for credit cards which we will make clear beforehand.

This also means that should you not live in Bath and want to send us something to repair then we can now do so much easier - no missing cheques in the post!

Regards,
Pete

Toshiba 40L1333 LED TV sound no picture/backlight

February 11, 2015
We are starting to see LED tvs in the repair shop now, it seems to be that the new LED technology is having some teething issues and are failing earlier than expected.

We are still at the early stages of repair methods for these, however we have had some good success getting the picture back.

If you have a Toshiba LED tv with sound, but either no picture or a very dark picture then it we should be able to repair it.

Affected known models:
Toshiba 32L1333
Toshiba 32L1333D
Toshiba 40L1333

Panasonic DMREZ47VEBK vhs recording issues - picture tearing

February 9, 2015
We have recently had a couple of similar Panasonic recorders come in with various issues. One is where the recording in VHS mode gives picture tearing issues, even though a normal VHS retail tape will play ok. This is usually down to wear and tear and we can currently still obtain the parts to repair this. Thankfully Panasonic uses the same parts in a few different models making it easier to get them (as they are more common).

Remember, any DVD read error issues on these models including fault...
