Question about Toshiba TP55H60 55" Rear Projection Television

5 Answers

Toshiba TP55H60 power down after start up

If I uplug the tv for a little while and plug it back in,it turns back on for a very short period of time,then it shuts off and the blinking red lights occur.It will not turn back on until I unplug it for awhile,and then try again only for it to shut off again in about 20 seconds.I have had the tv for 8 years and would rather try to fix it rather than let it go,it still has a great picture and sound.Any help would be appreciated,thank you.

    I have the same problem with my eight year of TV. Each unplay allows it to stay on for about 5 minutes. It does not seem to be the sleep timer or the auto turnoff when TV signal is missing.

    I have the same problem. I'm going to try and remove the convergence module as all "flashing red light" issues seem to point to it! I'll keep you posted

    I've got the same problem. From what I've read it apprears the convergence IC's have gone bad. I have ordered new ones and will replace them. I'll keep you posted on my results.

    I have the same problem. TV powered down and red power light started blinking.

    I tried changing the IC's and did get much luck. Now I get an immediate flashing light....Perhaps the new IC's need to be calibrated or something?

    I replace the IC's with some I purchased from e-bay and instead of clicking off after 2-3 seconds, it turns off immediately. Replacing the STK-392 IC's didn't work.... I'll see what else I can come up with next.

Try the following
1-unplug tv
2-remove bottom cover on tv
3-tap the power supply frame a few times (where the power cord enters the tv)
I had the blinking red light on my tv. I tried other solutions like removing the red wire a few times etc. Tapping the power supply frame solve the problem.

I tried the solution posted by pmcaire (tapping the power supply frame) and it worked. The tv is working now and I was able to cancel a very expensive service call this morning. ($325)

This most likely is the IC Convergence chip STK392-150. I ordered some on E-bay and the solution did not work. I believe there was a resistor or capacitor that also needed to be replaced so when I plugged in the TV with the replace IC convergence chips, they just popped again. I had to send it to a Toshiba repair show which charged me 400 bucks to fix it. That was 9 months ago.... Guess what, same problem again. Blinking red light. Time for a flat screen.

I had the same problem a few years ago and had a tech come out . It was a bad resistor easy fix. Hard part was having the tv not work when tech was here to trace the problem.
