Re: timer continuously won't turn on

Most times the flashing red light indicates the tv is in protection mode due to a problem with a circuit board....Good Luck

** TV won't turn on.** No picture or sound. Please Help !

If the red light won't come on it is not getting power.First,try plugging it in to a different outlet,or unplug one of the gadgets you know is working and plug the tv in there.You are simply switching.If you know that there is power coming from the outlet and it still won't come on then you'll have to check the cord;don't go much farther than that without expert help.

Tv won't turn on only a red timer light appears when the power is pushed on

First press on the power button on the tv remote control. if it is also not solved then i think your tv has a internal hardware problem which may be failure of some electronic components. It will be better to take it to nearest service center

Replaced bulb,still not turning on-power flashes green then red and lamp light comes on

Did you reset the lamp timer? If you replace the lamp and dont reset the lamp timer the TV will continue to display the lamp error until you do.

Red power light continuously blinking. no picture no sound.

It could be the lamp went out and needs replacement. The Toshiba website states when this happens to unplug the televison for 10 minutes then plug back in. If that does not work then try another power outlet. If that does not work then call for service

Power problem

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.
