Question about Toshiba 50H81 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Tv shutting off

The tv will shut itself down (but the red light stays on) after a while. Sometimes it takes longer than others. It will not come back on until you turn it off and wait a while. If I just leave the tv on after it shuts down, the red light will begin to blink.

Heard a pop, tv went off, then doesnt come back on

Your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur. The sound is it starting up, shutting down, over and over.

You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

I turn on tv shuts off after 30-45min. red lite goes dim

It's likely that the TV will require service since your troubleshooting steps didn't resolve the problem. If your TV is smaller than 30", you may carry it in to the retailer of purchase for repairs. Otherwise, service for your TV can be obtained by calling 1-888-237-8289 in the U.S. or 1-866-237-8289 in Canada.
