Question about Toshiba TP50H60 50" Rear Projection Television
I have a Toshiba TP50H60, which when plugged in, will show the word COLORSTREAM in blue on the screen and then go blank. It blinks its red Power LED also. Any Ideas are appreciated :)
Not an easy fix....requires chassis pull, careful soldering and
replacement of parts and fuses.....would you like step-by-step?

I don't think is any lamps.
If you are handy try to open the back of your tv, (unplug it first) don't touch anything just yet, you need to make sure you discharge any static left on the power board (the first from your left )Unplug power cord from the board. Take a heavy long screwdriver (Isolated) and lightly, touch a few parts on the board including the thick red wires that go to the lamps. Once that's done its time to put your dexterity at work. You need to lift that board (PD 0074) so that you can check some fuses like F850, F852, etc. for continuity. Mine were out. I had replaced those two and I had tv for another year. Remove the screws that hold the board. Now, this board PD0074 is connected to the next board by two white connectors and one blue. ....lift them up from one side with your finger nail. Don't unplug anything from the power board, just loose some wires so that you can lift the whole board on one edge. Get a voltmeter and set it to check continuity. Mine has a buzz. Look for them fuses if they are bad , ....replace them. (You can buy them at Partstore.com.....punch in "fuses"or "125V 2A")
In my case that was the only problem a year ago. Now I also have the same problem but this trick didn't work for me anymore. The Power Co,. messed me up big this time. In fact the problem with these Toshiba rear proj. is that when the power in your house goes out and comes back right a way in a split second and you don't have a power regulator, guess what : 'red led blinking'
In my case this time the whole power went on and off a few times within 10 sec. and by the time I got to the TV to unplug, it was to late. I think I have to replace the whole PD0074 board....and that's expensive.

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.
