Question about Toshiba Televison & Video

Television stays in standby and won't switch on, just a high pitched sound

My Toshiba television goes into standy mode when you switch it on but then won't power up when you press the on button on the remote, it's just a high pitched sound. If I turn the television off for a whole day it's okay the next day though. However, give it a couple of hours and it won't switch on again

The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.


If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Television will not stay on. Runs for 5 seconds then goes into standby mode.


Modern Flat Panel Televisions these days are really just computers inside. The Switch Mode power supply has the ability to sense faults & over current draw. So... there really isn't much the average person can do to fix an electronic problem.
The usual problem is overheating, bad connector problems & electrolytic capacitors leaking or popping. If you don't have the skills to open & look for problems then you will have to take it to a tv electronics guy.

I have a Samsung HL-P5067W/HL DLP tv. When I turn it on cold the lamp light blinks on and off. The fan makes a high pitch sound a relay clicks the TV goes back to standby and the lamp light starts blinking...


This sounds like a lazy lamp--that is getting hard to start. Try a new lamp first. If you are inclined to do so--get a bard bulb and install in the old lamp housing and save some money. Get a real PHILLIPS bulb--it will last a while--compared to cheap generics that are good for maybe 6 months !!

NEC PLASMA SYNC 42MP2 STANDY BY MODE?


According to the manual for "POWER/STANDBY indicator is blinking in red":
  • "The temperature inside the main unit has become too high and has activated the protector."
  • "Promptly switch off the power of the main unit ans wait until the internal temperature drops."
  • "If the monitor becomes too hot, the overheat protector will be activated and the monitor will be turned off. If this happens, turn off the power to the monitor and unplug the power cord. If the room where the monitor is installed is particularly hot, move the monitor to a cooler location and wait for the monitor to cool for 60 minutes."
