I had the same problem with mine. One of the two fans were out on mine. I replaced the $9.00 fan, no problems after that. I fixed it myself after taking it to a Toshiba authorized repair facility, they said it was junk, can't get parts. They said buy a LCD. They never even took the back off of the set. Forty bucks down the drain for nothing. Nine dollar fan was all it was.

Take a second look in the power supply where the power cord goes for bad caps----a few examples:

TV goes to green, sound stays on a few seconds then TV shuts off.


Sounds like you have a bad picture tube. More than likely the CRT could be shorted, which would cause the set to shut down.
My first advise would be to power up the set with an isolation transformer with the voltage about 60% approx. 72 Volts AC, and monitor what happens when you increase the voltage slowly.
If the set remains on at 60 -70 %, then when increased to 90 - 100% it shuts down, you have something drawing too much current ( which could be the CRT )

Multisync LCD 1700V turns on then screen goes blank and shuts off


Does the power light stay on? If so, you have an inverter problem. If the power light goes off, you have a power supply problem.

KDF E60A20 screen goes blank loses sound for 10 60 seconds


I've had this same problem ongoing for a couple weeks. Finally, tonight it would shut off every 20-30 seconds, stay off for another 20-30 seconds then come back on. It turned out to be my bulb. I blew the TV out with compressed air, removed the bulb and disassembled it. Taking the bulb out of the plastic cage I then remove one of the metal screens at the top of the bulb, it just has little clips holding it in. I took a bottle of rubbing alcohol, some Q-tips and proceeded to clean the inside of the bulb through the screen hole. After cleaning the inside I put the screen back in, cleaned the outside of the bulb with a rag and alcohol, then reassembled everything. The TV is much brighter, I had to turn down the brightness setting and has been running the last few hours without an issue. You can avoid all this by buying a new bulb but I don't have the money right now to replace it and I'm cheap so I'll milk this bulb for everything it has. Heat kills bulbs so if you clean the screens and blow out the TV once every couple months you'll get a lot of life out of it..... I'm almost to 4 years on my original bulb and my TV is on constantly!! Good luck to all!!

In all likelihood, the TV's Main Power ON/OFF switch is faulty. Get it replaced.
