Have an older Toshiba theaterview TV, when turn on, we have no picture, no sound, just black screen and blinking red light that just continuously blinks.

Theaterview suggests a rear projection--in that case it most likely is in the convergence circuit--unsolder chips (convergence) and see if set turns on.

Some of their regular TV sets (picture tube) if the light is just blinking means the same thing=shutdown because of a short/problem but a model number would tell me which you have.

No picture but the red power button blinks each time it blinks there is a thumping noise from speakers and a clicking sound

try checking the fuse area, together with the capacitor & resistor may one of them is faulty. and also check for any bad soldered.

let me know

The red light is blinking and the tv sounds like it on when unplugged and replugged; but there is a black screen.


If you are having sounds but no picture, it is either the lamp or the t-com board.

But if it does bot display anything or make any sound at all but from inside the unit it sounds like there is power in the unit, then it means there is a problem with the main panel of the television. Most likely a bad capacitor.

Have the unit checked for bad capacitors and replace them and the television will be in good condition once again.

Take care and good luck

Tv picture is going out and standby/timer light blinks

Hi Kevin!

The issue may be related to the projection lamp in the TV and replacement may be required. However, before replacing the projection lamp in the TV, you may perform the troubleshooting steps mentioned below.

Please disconnect all the cables from the TV including the power cable then reconnect them after two minutes. Please make sure that the the power cable from the TV is directly connected to a functional wall outlet. Next, you may try connecting any other video source such as cable box, DVD player, Blu-Ray player, Playstation, etc. If the issue persists then try resetting the TV to the original factory settings.

Please follow the steps mentioned below to reset the TV to the original factory settings:
(i) Turn the TV ON.
(ii) Press and hold the Reset button on the Remote Control supplied with the TV, then press the Power button on the front panel of the TV.
(iii) Next, release the Power button. The TV will turn itself off, then back ON.
(iv) Release the Reset button.

If the issue persists then you may replace the projection lamp in the TV.

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.

Power button Flashes

For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.
