Question about Toshiba 42HP95 Television
Has a solution been made for thr red blinking light for the toshiba 42hp95
I turned the 42HP95 TV off one night and it didn't come back on. Had the red LED flashing etc. Found the solution posted by CheapTech: http://www.fixya.com/support/t101749-tv_turned_itself_off_turn_back but didn't take it seriously because these things never work, others were mocking the answer blah blah. Well, just before kicking the damn thing to the curb, I grabbed a screwdriver, took off the back cover, unplugged the little do-hicky sugested in the Solution, and the idiot box came right back on. Go figure. Been working ever since. SO, you might want to try this before busting out the electrical schematics and dropping $$ on repair. Cheers.

I have done some research because I have the same problem and this is what I have found. Hope this helps.
These sets are assembled using the wave soldering process they are known for having cold solder connections. The safety circuitry shuts the TV set down or will keep it from turning on when it detects a problem. This is why the power light blinks. This model of TV has over 2,000 parts which includes millions of transistors inside the integrated circuits. The capacitors will change value, leak and become defective. Resistors will change value and burn. Diodes and IC can go bad. This may have a domino effect and cause other parts to fail. Replacing one defective part may make the TV operate for a short time but the part will fail again if the parts that caused the failure to begin with are not replaced. The only way to know for sure which parts that are no longer within factory specs and for a proper repair all the electronics must be diagnosed by someone with the correct electronic test equipment specifically designed for TV service and the skills to use the test equipment. I wish I could tell you there was a quick fix or button to push that would fix the TV but that is not the case or the solution needed to get the TV operating correctly.
I will expect the repair will be $250 to $350. A small TV shop will often charge less than a large repair facility. I believe the TV will be worth having repaired even though a LCD TV will cost less to operate.

Thank you Fixya this solution worked in my tv shop on this model tv. I removed the cover and disconnected the four line cable connected to the cable card module. The 15 volt source I had been missing is now restored. FYI Time warner has issued a statement from August 2009 that their system will not work properly any longer using the Scientific Atlanta Cable Card.. Putiing the module out of it's misery is much cheaper than replaceing the piece and all the other inputs including antenna in still function

The power supply is toast. You have to replace it. Parts and labor range from $500.00 to $600.00 + buy a surge protector = buy a new TV. Sorry, it happened to me.

Well This is what I did , Got electrical print outs.
checked volts, Missing 15 volts off of the power supply?
Solution may not be for everyone! But, IT worked for me.
Get a car battery 12V Neg to ground and Positive to one of the 15V outlets!!!
WaLAAA the IC is back BABY!!!! It works AGAIN, without leaving the battery plugged in!!!!
Must have needed a JUMP!!! It worked for me But BE VERY CAREFUL!! Lots of VOLTS!!!!
