The TV is on protection.

Protection is a special diagnostic mode that will keep the TV in standby as an internal fault had been detected.

The clicking noise is the protection switch that keeps turning the TV off to prevent further damage.

The fact that TV restarts after unplugging lets think to a fault on power supply board inside TV.

When you unplug TV you discharge PSU capacitors, and that is the reason why the TV restarts afterward

First test the unit on a different socket. If you are using a surge protector, remove it.

Try also leaving the TV unplugged for a longer time, let say several hours.

Also unplug all connected device, and leave only the aerial cable, a defective receiver box or DVD can cause the same problem.

If that does not solve the problem, then the TV is faulty, probably a defective PSU (power supply) board. The part must be tested before replacement.

In this case, locate any good qualified repairer.

SOURCE: switching on problem Goodmans tvc201t

We had the same television and when it came on after a power cut it just did this clicking thing. We rang up but we were told it would be too expensive to fix. It got chucked.

However, coincidentally, we happened to be given another television of the same model by someone who was moving abroad. The same thing happened when it was unplugged from the mains while on stand-by. Having seen the half-solution above, I tried pressing the on button on the remote but it just kept clicking away. I tried various buttons, including ones on the television itself. Eventually after much button pressing, it made the initial noise like it was about to fire up but then went back into clicking mode. But by keeping on pressing buttons, it seemed to make more and more of an effort to turn on, which eventually it did.

As it happens, the final button pressed was on the remote control, but I think any button will do. So don't give up if your remote doesn't work. Just keep pressing buttons, and it might just gradually build up a head of steam until it turns on. This could take a good few minutes. I've no idea what might have actually happened. Someone posted the same problem elsewhere on the internet and someone suggested it might be something to do with the capacitor.

where the cable for the power sw connects to the motherboard your polarity might be reveresed. Therefore, try switching the plug-in the other direction (groung and colored wires).

Switch TV on then a blank red screen appear then a green and then a blue which then just repeats that sequence of colours every second. The remote control packed up working some month before. - 2 year old...


turn TV on, let the Tv cycle through the three colours, then using the remote press the menu button followed by the standby button. press standby button again and it all comes up working.

No Picture on Toshiba 42RV530U


I had a similar problem to this yesterday. Tv is same Toshiba model as you mentioned about 4 months old. In my case, after the TV working perfectly following installation, the standby LED on the front (the one that is red on standby and green when on) went to a flashing orange (after switching on from standby) and the picture disappeared although the sound remained OK. I was unable to get any response from the setup or menu on the remote, otherwise I would have tried resetting the TV. Regardless of how much switching off/on (including disconnecting the powerlead and leaving for few minutes), disconnecting all peripherals, etc., nothing helped. I looked up Toshiba's web site and under support they basically suggest switching off the TV and restarting using the onset buttons (not the remote) and pressing the menu button (again the one on the set (not the remote) and if you could get the menu box to appear then reset to default settings. I tried this but the results were the same. I therefore thought the TV was defective. However, after much frustration I did the following (I think): 1) Disconnect everything from the TV 2) Powered up from the mains switch whilst keeping BOTH the startup and menu buttons on the side of the TV pressed down. The result in my case was that the standby led and one of the two beside it flashed green simultaneously. However, when the buttons were released, the TV started up the same (flashing LED orange and sound no picture). 3) Pretty well defeated at this point, after doing the procedure at (2) several times with the same results, I somehow thought of pressing the standby button on the remote either whilst the two buttons on the set were depressed or just after they were released. I am afraid I cannot remember which and cannot replicate the problem as I don't know what caused it in the first place. 4) The TV then started normally ( no reception as I had not aerial connected, etc.,) but I was able to gain access to the screen menu/setup buttons via the remote which were in French rather than English. However, after reconnecting everyrthing the TV has worked fine (obviously after resetting the language via the menu). I am sorry I cannot be more precise but I hope this might be of help to someone with a similar problem.
