We had the same problem, for the same model of Toshiba TV. Had it repaired yesterday. Turns out the problem was the power supply (P.C.B).
The total cost was $192.66 Canadian funds (taxes and labour all in). Our model was 6 years old, buts its playing like a brand new unit now. Hope this helped ...... Good luck
I have the Same TV and the same problem happen to me last night. Not very happy :(
You paid $200 dollars to get this fixed. Do you know the model # of the power supply that was replaced or the one that was put in its place. I would do it myself if I new what the new part was. I'm sure it's not the same one.
I won't pay $200 dollars for a TV I bought 6 years ago for $600

I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.
the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.
hello the red blinking lights is a service code when this happens it means theres a power problem or a fualty circut. it happens alot with these new plasma and lcd tv's its very common since these units have built in protection and power loss a fualt or short will cuase this.
the tv needs service the tech will know what to look for according to the number of blinks.
alright guys...blew a bulb....fixed that. still didint work...found out it was ballast...replaced that. tv worked for a month..all the sudden hdmi input didint work id plug in my playstation and screen would turn green and say "hdmi color has been corrupted" im thinking wtf? so a week later it works fine then just turns off in middle of watching espn... comes back on an hour later...only to turn off again...it just turns black for ten seconds then just turns off and the red and green lights blink at intervals of one second....replaced a bulb..not that, same problems.......when the tv comes on for the ten minutes before it quits working the pic and sound are great i just dnt get it...is it shorting out? color wheel bad? a fan?
my screen will turn on right after unit is plugged in and stay on for a short period of time, then it shuts off and the red light near the power button blinks and teh tv will not turn back on.
there might be problem of loose contact in power supply
Try the following 1-unplug tv 2-remove bottom cover on tv 3-tap the power supply frame a few times (where the power cord enters the tv) I had the blinking red light on my tv. I tried other solutions like removing the red wire a few times etc. Tapping the power supply frame solve the problem.
This isn't gonna help you, but I have the same problem on my 62HM15A, think we have about the same tv, widescreen DLP,?
My TV does the same thing powers with a blining lite then powers off. First it powered on with sound no pic, then would shut down and power up again with pic and sound , now i gots a nothing just powering on and off until i shut the thing off manually.
thanks, just posted here in case some answers bipea's question and it relates to mine.
Power light blinking mean that the internal power supply is not working correctly. Often the internal power supply itself need to be repaired ( usually a one hour work if spare parts available).
Another basic circuit in the TV can be short circuited due to a component failure and consequently cause the internal power supply to block everything.
A routined pro must be able to tell you within short time cost of repair and spare parts. Up to you to then decide wether or not have this set repaired. Be aware a pro will ask you a fee for this service, even you don't want the set to be repaired.You can save some cost if you bring your TV set yourself to the repair-shop.
The kind of problem is not really age-related; if your TV is running daily 16 hours, with many on/off switching, and particularly in a cool place can degrade some components within warranty time.
I had the same red blinking led problem on my Toshiba Theaterview tv. I resolved by: - Unplugging the tv. - Press several times (3 or 4 times) the tv Power button. - Plug the tv back in and press the Power button once to turn the tv on....tv worked!!!
I've had the problem before and tried unplugging the tv for a couple of days and that had also worked, but I this recent solution seems to be faster. Good luck! Erick
