Here is some useful information off of the manufacturer's product information PDF regarding the lamp problems/issues: LED indications: The green and red LED lights on the TV control touchpad (on the lower right corner of the TV screen)indicate the TV?s current status, as follows: ? Green ON = Control touchpad being pressed. ? Red ON = Power ON. ? Green and/or Red blinking 35) Special care for D LPTM (digital light processing) units: ? Lamp?The lamp in this product has a limited service life. The length of service life varies depending on product use or user settings. If you use the lamp beyond its service life: - you may notice a reduction in the colors and/or brightness of the picture, at which time you should replace the lamp unit; and - the strength of the quar tz glass in the lamp will be reduced and the lamp may rupture.

SOURCE: Replace Light Engine
I have the 62HM95 and my light engine went out between 2 and 3 years. I will never buy a Toshiba again. I have had nothing but trouble with the components and the customer support. I am in a class action lawsuit with them, but I doubt very much will come of it.
As far as fixing your TV I was in the same delimma as you. I wasn't willing to pay nearly $1000 to get this set repaired when it already cost $3000 and it started having problems within the year and major issues after 2-3 years. I was willing to risk a couple hundred bucks that I could fix it myself. If you aren't very handy with taking things apart and putting them back together, by all means don't do this. It is pretty easy to do and you can figure it out as you go, but I wouldn't suggest you doing this if you weren't willing to take the risk of really messing it up.
I didn't go to Part Store.com because they wanted $456 and then when I finally decided to do it they raised the price to $556...No way, I found http://www.tristatemodule.com/html/light_engines.html and you can get a light engine that is refurbished for $250, or you can have your light engine refurbished for $200, which is what I plan to do if this one fails in the next two years. I looked at their site and it doesn't show that they have any in stock, but they may if you call. I wasn't comfortable sending mine off to be refurbished because I wasn't sure if I would remember how to put it back together, and I'm glad I didn't because the one they sent me didn't work, which sucks, but it happens. I called them back and sent it back to them and it worked fine. All in all, I had no instructions or any other help besides my memory of how I disassembled it and it only took me an hour at the most, not really too hard.
The only other issue I had with them and it really wasn't with them as much as Toshiba is, I received a light engine for a 46" model, which when I talked to Toshiba they swore up and down that it wouldn't work, when I talked to TriState about it they said that Toshiba would say that and they had used it in 1,000's of 62" models and it's worked fine. After they replaced the broken one they sent originally, the new one worked fine and is still working brilliantly and I have my original 62" light engine to get refurbished if anything should happen again. Their shipping time was good and when I returned the product to them, I received a working part pretty quickly.
For $250, this would be the only way I would go. If this hadn't worked, I probably would have just went out and got a different TV. I hope this helps.

your power supply is turning the tv off because of a higher than normal drain on on it . it could be anywhere in the set . but most of the time but most of the time its in the horz dirver or output , hv driver thansformer (flyback) or hv spliter system . it might even be in audio or in the power supply itself . you will need the service manual a good trvm and a scope . to go through the system by system .injecting signals when needed to make parts of the set come alive ....... messing with this set without proper tools and training may kill you . there are high voltages in this set that will kill even if the set is off and unpluged for a week .i can provide test point volts and waveforms and voltages that you should be looking for if you know of someone (or yourself) with the equipment and know how to make the tests .... please let me know ..............if this answer helped please rate 3 or 4 stars if you think i was a waste of time please dont rate at all a 1 or2 may knock me out of the paid answer department and right now the shop is slow so i need the $$ .......i have all the flow charts on your tv if i can help you look something up please ask thanks

The TV is on protect mode.
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.
If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.
1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.
Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.
