Bad lamp? my 4 year old was watching tv and he came to get me to tell me that the tv screen went black. i did some research and i think it might be the lamp, but i'm not sure. I have a toshiba cinema series 62hmx84. it's 2 years old. it won't turn on,but it sounds like it's trying to. at first the red light stayed on and the green light blinked 10 times. after trying to turn it on and off a few times the green light stayed on and the red light blinked continously. what's happening to my tv? please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
