Replace CP150 and the HOT transistor and that should take care of it. CP150 is most likely the cause

    The HOT is a 2SC5588 transistor and CP150 is a 2200uf 16V radial capacitor. You can get both those parts at the following link with free shipping and free instructions. Just type 2SC5588 in the quick find search box on the lower left hand column to locate it then the CP150 is listed under RCA parts.

    if the set has been unplugged at least 1 hour the ITC222 chassis which is what your chassis is will automatically drain any stored voltages

Tv green light flashes on and off 3 times. Never comes on.

Three blinks - B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit, check T603 and R672.
check the components as given above and if necessary replace the components to solve the issue.
This will help. Thanks .please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

Hey can any one help me with my Toshiba 46H83 rear projection hdtv? My screen is off center by about 3/4 of an inch to the right. The picture is prefect except for this. I've asked this question two times...

OK, need to go to service menu of TV and adjust HPOS data, you can move entire picture left to right or right to left to adjust it on TV screen.
Be careful NOT to initialize service data memory otherwise all convergence will be a mess.
How to go into Service Mode is written in service manual of TV.
