Toshiba 28N33B This television will turn on but then all it does is count down from 5.00 minutes to 0 and then turn off! Can you post me a manual or tell me how to start it. I am not sure if it is the remote but tried fresh batteries and bought universal remote and this won't work the tv either

My standby light keeps blinking red. I shut it off and at times still blinks and will not turn on. I unplug for one minute and it continues blinking. Please Help!!!

This only happens when your television detects failure onits circuitry. If the system detects failure, it automatically activated theprotection mode. The number of flashes indicates where the failure in circuitryoccurs. Please do count the number of flashes for us to post the countermeasure for your television.

I have a Toshiba DLP Projection TV model # 44N HM84 made in October 2004. When we turn it on the green light blinks about sis or seven times then turns red. The TV doesn't come on. Any ideas? thanks in...

It is an error code. Count the flashes and then re-post asking what the amount of flashes means and how to repair it. Make sure you post make and model of TV.

Toshiba cz32v51power light flashes, with no picture

That means that an internal error had been detected, and now the TV is on protection mode.

To start unplug the power cord for ten minutes, and see if the TV restart.

If it does not try leaving the set unplugged for longer, let say two hours.

If still no luck call the number listed on the user manual, as the TV has an internal fault, and must be repaired by a technician.

I have a sony wega

Generally speaking whent he set shuts itself down, the standby light will blink a code. This will be a count followed by a short pause and then the count again etc.

When teh set shuts down, count the blinks and post it here. That will indicate the circuit that has the problem.

Telivision volume

sounds like a sticking tact switch. an engieer would isolate the sub-panel that contains the volume and the manual programme up/down switches and then operate the TV using the remote control and see if this eliminates the problem

How to replace Power Supply in Toshiba 44NHM84 44" TV

Since this is a DLP type set, there is a lamp and ballast involved. When the set shuts down, are there any indicator lights on the front? If so, check the owner's manual for an explanation of their meaning. Typically, the lamp can cause this or the ballast. If either of those are the problem, usually the lights on the front panel will indicate it.

Keep us posted.

Connecting a wii to a toshiba tv model no. 28n33b

I was having exactly the same problem with my toshiba 28N33B until 2 minutes ago! I searched the internet for the solution but only came accross your unanswered question, i hope you've sorted it by now anyway as its been 6 months, but for all those with a similar problem:

You cannot connect your wii to AV OUTLETS only INLETS! At first glance it appears that the 28N33B only has outlets....BUT actually, the AV inlets are (stupidly) hidden behind the speaker to the right of the TV screen (as if you were looking at the screen) - they are separate from all the other ports at the back of the tv.

For anyone looking for Toshiba inlets on other models - my advice would be to take a deep breath, push the telly out from the wall and take a GOOD long look all over the tv for three circular ports coloured red, white and yellow that have the words 'in' or 'inlet' etc printed near to them. You're wasting your time trying to connect the wii via the audio output, it just wont work, no matter how much you re-tune the tv (I know from experience! grr!)

Right, i'm off to play mariokart, hope this helps somebody!
