    Save your money on a new board and find an old SD card and go here:

    I had the same issue and the instructions on the link above fixed it. i spent 50 cents on an obsolete SD card.

Until you get it fixed, i found a way to get mine to come on. I have been doing this for the last three months. I will probably just buy a new (different branded) TV, rather than repair.
But, what I do is watch the yellow light blink three times then i count to three and then press hold the power button(on the tv). the yellow light will blink three times, go off for about three seconds, then blink twice. if it only blinks twice after the pause, then let off of the power button and press it once and then the tv comes on.
If this doesn't work then i just start over and try again and eventually it comes on.

    I eventually fixed it completely. It took a 256mb sd card with a firmware update file on it. The instructions can be found here:

    This solved the issue completely and the tv still works today. I am regret that i didn't post this sooner, for i fixed it about a year ago, but i had completely forgotten that i created an account and posted this on this website until i received an email that said over 6,000 people read my solution. i hope that all 6,000 come back and read the real solution.

Try this fix from the toshiba website. Q. I have no picture or sound, but I have a blinking power light?
Models: LCD-2007
1. Try resetting the TV by disconnecting the power for 30 seconds and then plugging it back in. If this has no
effect, try moving the TV to a different power outlet that has been tested and is known to be good.
2. If your unit continues to fail, please contact our Customer Solutions Department at 1-800-631-3811 Monday
through Friday, from 8 a.m. until 7 pm CST for a local Toshiba Authorize Service Station Hope this helps you with your problem.

That does nost sound normal. I would take a look at the output of the power supply. Look at your electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board. Do they look like the top of them has popped up? If so you can get replacement capacitor kits from

Can't switch off tv

All tvs draw a current so long as they're plugged in, this is what allows a remote device to power them on. Modern tvs will generally have a light to designate this (I think this is what you're referring to as standby). The only way to cut the current to your tv would be to unplug it or if it's connected to a surge protector, switch that off.
