    Hey mambo,



    thanks for your help. I called a repair guy. Once I opened up the TV, I realized it was not something I should mess with. Repair guy came and immediately told me it was the IC Conductors. I was able to suggest it was the relay or the IC Conductors. He was surprised I knew so much. This made him realize that he couldn't take me for a ride as I had done my homework. He replaced the conductors with original parts for $300.00. TV is as good as knew and should last atleast 5 years more.



    Thanks for trying though

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM ,I FOUND OUT AFTER OBSERVING FOR QUITE SOMETIME THAT THE CLICKING NOISE I HERE AFTER PLUGGING IT TO THE OUTLET CAME FROM A RELAY SWITCH LOCATED ON THE POWER BOARD AFTER TAPPING ON IT THE SET WOULD POWER AND THE BLINKING RED LIGHT GOES TO NORMAL..I BELIEVE THIS RELAY IS CAUSING THIS PROBLEM FOR ALL THE FELLOWS OUT THERE WITH THIS TV SET AND THE BLINKING RED LIGHT..IN MY CASE THE RELAY WENT SO BAD NOW THAT THE COIL THAT MAGNETIZES TO CLOSE THE CIRCUIT GAVE UP ,SO I PULLED THE COVER OF THE RELAY TO UNVEIL THE TWO METAL STRPS THAT COME IN CONTACT AND HAVE BENT ONE SLITELY TO REMANE CLOSE THIS POWERS THE TV UP NORMAL BUT IN ORDER TO SHUT IT DOWN I HAVE TO PULL THE OUTLET. THIS IS TEMPORARY UNTIL I CAN FIND WHERE TO GET RELAY SWITCH. PLEASE DONT TAKE MY RESEARCH AS A SOLUTION BUT FOR WHAT EVER ITS WORTH. I WILL GET THIS UP AND RUNNING AGAIN ITS ALL WORTH EVERY DOLLAR TO FIX.

After reading mambo101 post.... i found the relay by plugging the tv in several times, followed the sound, then felt the relay to be sure it was the one. I tried tapping and knocking the relay a bit, that didnt help... so then i tried pushing in it.... it held and the tv stayed on while holding it... since it went off after letting go, i made sure to push a bit harder and held it there longer and WOOLA... it held. been working great so far. was even brave enough to turn the tv off and on a few times using the power button.
i had to do all this after the unplugging and replugging the tv in just would not work anymore.
I am no repair person, just had some experience as an aircraft electrician in the military, and already knew the sound was a relay... figured i would open the tv up and search for the relay.
I got this tv for free about 2 years ago. had the problem on and off, and finally i had to open it up. I love this tv, and wouldnt want to trade it even for a new hdtv.
Thanks to everyone who posts.... it was nice to find that i wasnt the only one with this problem.... and it made me realize... i dont always HAVE to pay someone an ungodly amount of money to fix things i can fix myself.
Gotta love the internet! Thanks everyone, and good luck to the others out there dealing with this problem.

The continous red light merely means power is getting to your TV. From your description, it is likely the internal power supply has failed

TV won't turn on


It sounds that, the memory IC to your TV has damaged. This IC can be located very near to main system control IC. A very small one, with 8 solder terminals. Even though it is very small, function of it while the TV works is great. The work is a semi-skilled one, and you must have some knowledge in electronics to proceed.

try unplugging your t.v for a few minutes, then plug it back in. if it continues check your owners manual or google your issue. this might be the red flash of death. hopefully unplugging it works. good luck!

Toshiba TN55X81 Wont turn on but I hear clicking


Pull the three connectors to the yokes on the convergence board. If the set powers up, it's a good chance the STK392-110's need to be replaced. I fixed one today, and it has been running for 6 hours now.
