We had the same problem, open the panel on the back of the tv, the board on the left, not the one with the convergence chips. Inside the tv u will see a piece of paper with the fuse info. The board on the left unscrew it and flip it away from you, the fuses to test are at the bottom, on the circuit board it will say 125volt 5 amp, and the number starts with an f. they are small and rectangular and black. Check all but the 3 at the bottom are usually the culprits Hope this helps u

My toshiba TP50H15 color tv comes on then off and the light blink


The flashing power light on those Toshibas is usually caused by capacitors on the power board having failed solder connections. I have fixed them before by removing the power board and resoldering the capacitors. If you have experience with soldering and electronics it is an easy repair. Most shops will recommend replacing the entire board since their labor to repair it would probably cost more. Toshiba put out a service bulletin on this issue which a good technician should be aware of. (If memory serves the capacitors are C109 and C110.  Since your TV still turns on you probably haven't blown fuse F860 which often blows when these capacitors act up.)
If you would like further help with this please post a comment back here.

Picture problem Model Toshiba 61H71


Hi, convergence circuit has failed, IC`s and probably 1 or 2 precision resistors will have to be changed, not really something you can fix if your not an electronics tech, BMW Rider

Blinking power light


Our 61H71 just did the same thing! I have found on another site where a fuse on the Convergence board was replaced as a fix for this issue...however, fuses are usually symptoms not causes...it is very difficult to find availabe information on this issue...it may be time to call a professional...Good Luck!
