Television picture gets larger

My televison screen keeps jumping back an forth from a larger image to the normal size image. This happens when the scene changes or when I change the channel. It sometimes stays normal for a while but then goes right back to changing sizes.

Re: Television picture gets larger

Your problem most likely is in your high voltage circuit, and the 160 volt radial lead capacitor is probably gone high ESR or changed in capacitence, this usually happens during bright sceens or sceen change.

Red power light continuously blinking. no picture no sound.

It could be the lamp went out and needs replacement. The Toshiba website states when this happens to unplug the televison for 10 minutes then plug back in. If that does not work then try another power outlet. If that does not work then call for service
