Toshiba 42HP95 TV turned itself off, red light blinking

I recently bought a plasma Toshiba and it's been working great, but after watching the TV for about 4 hours continuously on the third day, the TV turned itself off, and the power light is blinking red. When I press the power button, it won't turn back on. The model number on the tv is 42hp95 incase that helps at all. Any ideas? Well sorry to say we did the unplug thing and did what Cheaptech said with the diagrams and nothing. The TV wouldnt even come on. Calling the tech tomorrow. I will get an estimate and thats probably all. Cheaper to buy a new one by panasonic that is 1080dp all the bells and whistles at sears for 899.00. Paid 3000.00 for mine. Never buy a toshiba again.

I have a 42" Samsung Plasma that does the same thing; another 42" Samsung Plasma that just flashes red light, but won't come back on; and a Panasonic 50" LED that is just flashing the red led light next to the power button now and won't come on at all.

Different manufacturers, but similar problems. It seems like to me that all of these flat screen tvs are crap. High-priced, crap! Two of mine lasted less than a year before the problems started. I would like to know if all of the components on the boards are made by the same manufacturers? Because it seems as if someone should have gotten it right, somewhere! Especially with all of the money we're being charged for these things. And don't try to have them fixed! you'd think you were trying to buy gold bouillon!

TV turned itself off, won't turn back on


I had the same issue with my 42HP95 after about two and a half years. Same symptom, red flashing power light, reset doesn't work and most of all, the last day of the Ryder Cup starts in 3 hours. Any other time (with exception of SuperBowl Sunday). I frantically searched the web for like symptoms and came across someone that posted the fix was to bypass the Seine Module but I had no clue what that was! So what do you do? Tear off the back of the TV and look for something that says Seine on it... Right! After that failed and 500 screws later, I decided to look for a Service Manual online. Nothing like RTFM (Google it!). I paid my $11.99 for a download Service-Manual.Net and found what appeared to be the Seine Module (SEIN). Through a little trial and error, here is what I came up with. The pic below shows the location of the said Module in the red rectangle.

78c6772.jpg I ultimately found that if I unplugged the connector from the module (in red circle) and put it in the cable management loop (other red circle), the TV would power on and has been working ever since.

According to the post I read (grains of salt) the SEINE Module is only needed if you are using coaxial type (rabbit ear) antenna. I personally don't know but it works for me. Granted, this is my experience and may not work for you but for $12, I am a happy camper. BTW, what a Ryder Cup!!! USA USA USA!!!
