Question about Toshiba 42HP83 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
RE: I have the same problem. The television shuts off after being on for 30-60 seconds. Thank God it is happening while still under warranty. Is this something simple that I'm missing? When it goes off, the red (on) light actually blinks twice every few seconds. I'd appreciate any help anyone can provide. I don't see that anyone posted a response. I hope someone can help.
Same thing with mine! I just had a repair guy out and he said it was the power supply grid and that it would cost 1300 to fix!

I just had the same problem with mine (Toshiba 42HP85) The TV was fine and shutoff red light blinked twice, and you can turn it on agin right away then it shuts off again. The problem was there are 2 cooling fans you can here at the top rear of the unit, when they get dusty the bearings wear out and shut off. See if you can here 1 or both fans working. If only one is on, you can get a replacement from coolguys.com for 7.95 ea. model # is on the back of the fan. Replace both while you have the cover off, if that's the problem. The unit shutting off is the computer sensing there is a problem the red light is an error warning. Good Luck!
