Is the iplayer coming from an outside source like a box?or is it an app on the set?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.
It is within Toshiba Places within the set
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.
I should add although the screen is live it is blank.
Roger what do you mean by blank?do you mean the screen is frozen pic up but frozen or blank/black?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.
No pic, it is black but you can see it lighten when switched back on at the wall. It will not switch to standby/off or on with the remote
If you press the menu button of the sets own remote control does the menu come up (I would guess not but I have to ask)? Is there any sound? Can you switch it off at the set itself to standby? Anthony
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.
There is no reaction from the buttons on the side of the set. There is no sound. There is no reaction from any of the buttons including menu from the remote. New batteries have been fitted.
OK seemingly at this time the main-board looks like its packed up because of the loss of control and loss of pic do you think you can replace this board yourself?I am sorry its nothing easierLet me know and I will provide all the relevant info and on going support Please consider rating the answer positively thank you there will be a rating band with this post, rating me positively enables me to receive credit from the site, thank you, ***** ***** will remain open and stay open as long as you need it, if you have any concerns please just let me know and I will answer any queries you have Many Thanks Anthony

I am fairly practical so could replace whatever is necessary. It will all depend on cost of the board at the end of the day. Let's start off with relevant info
You need to get the back off the set, locate the main-board thats the one with all the AV connectors on, unplug and unscrew the board from the chassis, remove the board ,carefully examine the board for its part number usually found on a sticky label on the board or etched on the board, (you may need to go through a few codes before you find the right number)when you get the part-number try first, if they dont have it google the part-number to locate a supplier, its the reverse to fit plug in and switch on TV (plug and play) Anthony
