SOURCE: I believe the blue lamp in my 57H81 is going bad.

You need to replace convergence out chips in your Toshiba 57H81 tv by qualified tech because 3-D look picture in rear projection tv shows some thing wrong with convergence output chips.
Your tv model number shows it is rear projection tv that use 3 tubes to make color picture on front screen where as dlp tv use one lamp as back light source to present picture at front screen that is generated in light engine.

How do i determine if my ballast board or capacitor is bad in my toshiba hd tv model no 57HM167?

The chances of the ballast failing are small on this model. Count how many times the Yellow light flashes before it pauses. Then google 57HM167 and the amount of blinks. ie " 57HM167 Yellow light flashes 3 times" That will tell you what you need to know. You can also post it here and we can help. I suspect you have a stuck fan(the fans are monitored to see if they are spinning. If not, they will not allow the TV to start up). Or you have the cover for the lamp not installed all the way. There is a switch that the lamp cover activates and the the TV will not turn on without it secured.

Toshiba TheaterWide 57HM167 Won't Turn On After Bulb Replacement

There is a ballast which drives the lamp--a hint would be to try to be in a position if possible to see if lamp ignites at all or even for a moment.

The ballasts do fail but rarely----it develops about 12,000 plus to the lamp and is much like spark plug wires as far as rf.

Some checks would have to be made and then the ballast priced--google the model number with ballast after it to get and idea.

No cut and dried solution here--several possible causes.

I have a toshiba 57h94 and when i turn on the tv i can hear a clicking sound, but no picture comes on. also, you can still hear a fan blowing.

You may want to check and see if the lamp is bad. On the left lower side there is a lamp door.
there is usually a knob screw or a phillips screw that keeps it in place. Open the door, remove the retaining screws for the lamp and pull the lamp out. Most of the time it is shattered and easy to tell it is bad. There is a part number on the lamp housing. If you can not find one local to you call
1800-631-3811. This the Toshiba customer service line and you can order one from them. I would expect to pay around 175.00 and 200.00 for the lamp.
I hope this helps,

Toshiba 52HM84 DLP TV with new bulb but the lights keep blinking

They exact way the lights blink are telling you what the failure is. If the tv is firing the lamp and the lamp is bad, you will hear a buzz sound for about 1 second. The tv tries 8 times before it gives up and spits out the lamp error. Check the user manual for led diagnostics. If you put in a new lamp but still have issues, you've likely got a bad ballast (most common on this model) or colorwheel (less common). Both are part of the optical block (light engine) and I don't believe they're available as individual components from toshiba.

I believe that that "CH" code means that one of the doors is not fully closed. Not sure because I haven't worked on a Sharp in a couple of years. It's easy enough to check though. Let me know if that helped.
