I need to know what the older TVs were called. The ones with the bump in the back. Not the flat screen. Have an old one that still works but some one gave me a newer TV and I want to list it at work to see if some one wants it. Thought a description would help.o

Without specifics on your TV or SKY box I can only offer general information. The SKY digital satellite receiver will have a number of outputs for connection to your TV. There will be a co-axial output similar to a TV aerial connection which is for older TVs and most flat screen TVs won't be able to tune into this RF output. There will be a large black rectangular connector which is a SCART connector and this can usually be connected to most flat screen TVs with a suitable SCART lead. There should also be a small connector called a HDMI output which is now the most common way of connecting to flat screen TVs, requiring a HDMI lead. Depending on which method you use to connect to the TV, you then use the TV remote control to select the input you used, which could be listed as SCART, AV1, AV2, HDMI1, HDMI2 etc.
These blinks to power light are fault indications. You can get an idea about the faulty circuit inside the TV, by this number of blinks, called blinking codes. Count the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON. Visit this site. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It has details about blinking codes to many brand TVs, including Sharp. Pull
up older posts there, either by its left side bar, or see it in Timslide
How old is your TV?? Most tvs 3yrs old and older,have cheap compacitors installed when the tv was made...Its a cheap repair if you learn to do it yourself...Have had two like this and both are perfectly running tvs after I installed new Compacitors
Each TV comes with one base, each base comes with a TV. The only way to get a replacement base would be to contact Toshiba and ask them directly for a replacement. For this to work, you'd need the model number of the tv. This can generally be found when you look at the back of the TV, it will have the label on a small sticker somewhere on the back.
Once you have the model number, try doing a quick search on Ebay. Someone may have an old base there that they no longer need, otherwise you're stuck with a wall mount or with contacting Toshiba.
If the problem doesn't return after the picture becomes normal, then it could just be due to the electron gun taking longer to fire up. I don't know how old your TV is, but TVs older than ten years typically take longer to warm up than more modern sets.
