Question about Toshiba REGZA 42 in. Flat-Panel LCD HDTV
The cable went out then the tv shut down I tried to power it back up and all I get is blinking yellow light. I checked the owners manual and said it should reset. I don't have any money right now I will have to check back with you

Here's how I fixed mine...
Look inside the back of the TV just above the power cord - there are two small LEDs, one green and one yellow (no need to open the case - you can see them through the cooling slots). In my case, the green LED would light for a few moments after plugging the TV in, then the yellow one would light and stay lit.
Go to the Toshiba site and download the latest firmware upgrade.
Copy the firmward upgrade to a SD memory card using your PC (SDHC cards larger than 2GB don't appear to be supported by the TV, so use a smaller one). I copied *both* the zip file as downloaded from Toshiba, and the contents of the zip file. That is, I expanded the zip file and copied the contents to the SD card as well.
There's a metal cover over the SD card slot on the back of the TV. Remove it (a single screw)...at one point, Toshiba has directions on the firmware download web site.
Unplug the TV and insert the SD card. Plug in the TV again, and in my case, those little LEDs stayed green. I saw none of the instructions on the TV screen - rather I just let it sit for about 10 minutes, then I unplugged the TV, removed the SD card, and plugged the TV in again. Viola - the TV works.
I'm thinking perhaps Toshiba uses a type of memory that requires battery backup, and if the TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it's necessary to re-flash it.

You could have gotten an electrical surge that put your set into a shutdown condition and unplugging the set and letting the Microprocessor reset will fix this problem if it dosent blow out the main power regulator as you still or might I say have a regulator IC problem. IF THIS PROBLEM HAPPENS AGAIN MORE THEN A FEW TIMES WITHIN A SMALL TIME FRAME I WOULD HAVE THE SET LOOKED AT BEFORE THE REGULAOR BLOWS SOMETHING OUT!!!!

I followed the steps at the following link and it worked for me. I have a 2007 Toshiba Regza 42HL67, but the firmware applies to many models as documented in the readme file at the location found via the link below. I used a 1gb SD card formatted FAT16, copied the unzipped files and folder to the card (wasn't sure if it required the top level folder or only the files under the top level folder so I copied both to the root of the SD card), unplugged the TV, inserted the card, plugged in the TV, waited 2.5 minutes, unplugged the TV, removed the card, plugged in the TV, yellow light flashed 3 times and went out. I turned on the TV and it has worked normally since last night.
