You would need to check the power supply and shutdown circuit for a faulty component. There is a manual called Toshiba power spply and shutdown circuitry available for 10.99 at the following link, That manual covers your model as well as quite a few other toshiba models. It gives step by step instructions on what to check, And the site offers ree unlimited support to help you with your diagnosing. They will een email the manual to you instantly if you returnto the site and click thecontact us link requesting that they email it instead of mail it. Here is the link just click on the Toshiba section and go through the pages of listings you will find it listed there.

Hello, I have an 56' Mitsubishi 1080I television. Model #55859. We moved the TV across the room last night and now we cannot get it to turn on. All we can get is a flashing green timer light on the front,...

Hi rteague2566,

The flashing light indicates something is wrong. Have you tried pushing AV reset button on the front panel of the TV. You may even try the little pin hole reset by the power button too. I think you may have bumped or, vibrate it to hard in the move and, caused the lamp or lead wires to become lose or, unseated. You may have even damaged it. Did you move this TV when it was still warm? Is the light blinking fast and, can you hear anything going on inside. Usually the DM board fails or, a few capacitors need replaced with this model.

If you still can't get the TV to turn on after the reset buttons have been pushed. Can you read the blink code. It should blink, blink, pause, blink, blink, blink. That would be a blink code of 23. Count the blinks in between the pauses. Let me know what code you get. If it just blinks real fast it is probably the DM. I kind of think you may just need to re-solder the leads. A DM cost about $250 with labor. When you plug back in and turn the TV on, let it blink for a few minutes, it might come back on. I'll wait for your response to give further instructions.

9 year old Sony Trinitron TV 27 inch; a red light is flashing "standby, timer"; have tried to cancel this but the TV won't turn on, just hear a clicking sound when pushing the power button

The key here is the number of blinks. The standby light should blink a count followed by a few second pause with the count repeating. That count coupled with the model number will giveme enough information to provide you with a solution. Can you uipdate this with that info please?

Samsung HL-R4266W 42 in won't turn on


Initially, have you tried a full hard reset? If not, pls unplug from the mains. Most current devices would reset and revert back to factory default settings (assuming no internal hardware fault) when unplugged for a considerable period of time (from a few minutes to a couple of hours).

Additionally, have you tried powering the unit using another outlet?

Pls post back for any development(s) or even the lack of it.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

TV needs lamp replacement as existing lamp got weak or has been reached to end of its working life, please note that lamp is not dead or broken so that is why lamp lit is not lit at tv front.
