First thing I would do is replace relay. If relay is sticking open then replace and there is a diode in front of relay replace it to. Not least the caps around it.

It sounds like your convergence IC's are going out.
This is a common problem. There are two IC'c that control multiple functions and they are a high failure part due to running hot. There are also some resistors in that same circuit that will sometimes overheat and change values. The only other thing it may be is a yoke going bad, which is a copper coil that fits over the tubes. I've seen two yokes go bad compared to 100's of convergence IC's so its more than likely the IC's. You could wait until it completely quits working, or you could fix it now, but it will only get worse. You are not really doing any damage by playing it like you are, its just an inconvenience. The total cost to repair the convergence circuit would be $225, and if it was a yoke it would be $25 more. I have all the parts in stock so if you decide to fix it let me know and we'll schedule a time. Thanks for your inquiry.

Westinghouse ew32s5kw tv red light shows power is going to unit pressing power turns indicator light from red to blue for a brief moment then back to red.

I had the same problem on my Westinghouse 32 inch TV. The internal main power supply went bad and had to be replaced. I had a TV repair shop do it. It was about 8 years ago. Haven't had a problem since. I think it cost about $70 for parts and labor. Nowadays TVs are pretty much a throw away item if they go bad. TV repair shops are getting hard to find plus the cost of TVs has come down so much sometimes you can get a new set for what the repair would cost!

I replaced the power board on my Scott TV LCT37SHA. when I press the power button the red light blinks as I push it. if I hold down the power button it just blinks until I let it go. please help!!

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

Code for Sky+ remote to work with Toshiba TV AV635DB

Hi there. I have just bought the same television today and I have just found that the remote code 0156 does actually work. The mistake i initially made was not pressing the TV BUTTON after I had held in the SELECT and RED Buttons together, making the light blink twice. So here's what I did:

1. Press the TV button
2. Hold in the Select and Red Button until the red light flashes twice
3. Press the TV button again
4. Enter the code 0156 (The Red light will blink Twice again)
5. Test the controller - Try to change the volume
6. If it works, press SELECT one last time to save the settings.

Hope this helps.
