    That was exactly the problem. At least it was not an IC chip like before.

    To fix it was simple, disassemble the bank of the unit, clean the contacts, buy new tube and bingo.

    You had to replace some fluoro tubes? Where did you get them, are they a "standard" type?

    I tore that out from a unit with a similar size, and works like a charm.

    So now, I don"t think I will even have to touch a UI check. Closer to home, much better than the tundra.

    To close the toshiba tv thread, its not my day job for sure. I rather work on cars and trucks. It's good for a side line, but not my cup of tea.

    Thanks for the info on TV. I have never torn into one like that, was curious what they actually looked like. I was surprised to see the tube "array", I thought it was just a couple of tubes along the screen edge(s). Maybe some are, don't know... Yeah, keep us advised on the new job.
