Re: toshiba tv mod tp55h60

Is this set a tp55 projection or a 36a40 direct view? If projection, these sets are bad with convergence problem. Meaning the color goes haywire, red, green blue are all misalign. If this was not what you experienced then it also could be a sound problem or vertical. Either way if you press power and will not come on it's tell you that there is a problem that needs to be address.

Toshiba Color TV Relay clicks slowly. TV does not come ON.

Electrolitic Capasitors in the power supply going or being bad will cause this. At some point a low value resister also will start to run hot or burn up. I believe it it a 16v 1500 uf cap near the relay. I would also replace any 10uf 160v caps in the powersupply too.
Hope this Helps,

Power problems problem on

I would try a power drain:  Unplug the TV's power cable so the TV is not grounded to the house.  Then press and hold in the TV's own power button for one minute to drain the capacitors. Plug the TV back in and see what happens.  If the TV will still not turn on, I would say you have a problem with the TV's mainboard as a dead power supply will not light any LED's for you.
