Question about Toshiba 50HM67 50" HDTV

2 Answers

My toshiba 50HN67 TV won't power on.

My toshiba 50HN67 DLP TV won't power on. The yellow light blinks regularly - this is NOT listed in the manual (yellow blink + blue solid means lamp out; nothing listed for yellow blinkalone). The TV is two years old, and I replaced the lamp 6 months ago. I pulled the lamp and inspected it just be sure and it appears to be OK.

Can anyone help? Thanks.

    not sure, is not at the house right now. my recollection is that it would blink several times, say 3-5 times, then pause, then start the same cycle again. It would do this non-stop as long as it was plugged in.

    thanks for the reply. I tried that a number of times - didn't work. finally had an "authorized" Toshiba repair man come, charged me $100 for a diagnosis of "not sure exactly, but probably the ballast, $500". After much unsuccessful haranguing w/ repair man and corporate toshiba, I threw in the towel. Sold the tv "as is" to repairman for $100 (it would have needed a new bulb, $150 in about 3 months anyway). Bought a new Panasonic 50" plasma for $800. MUCH better picture, hopefully more reliable. Wouldn't go near either DLP or Toshiba again.

What's your problem? won't turn on..... yellow/orange light continually flashes three times...


Toshiba Regza 37in - 37HL17
TV will not turn on - Yellow power ind. Light blinks three times...
Fixed with a firmware update (hard to believe, but true). Search Google for a file named: 2007SEN069.zip (don't worry if the page you find it on doesn't mention the 37HL17 - it worked fine). Unzip the file, and copy the 3 folders and 3 files to the root of a small SD card. The SD card MUST be 2GB or less in size (I used a 1GB card), and it MUST be formatted with FAT-16 (not FAT-32). Mine was pre-formatted as FAT (FAT-16). The SD port is on the back of the TV behind a cover plate near the power cable. You do NOT need to remove the back cover of the TV, just the small cover plate (1 screw). UNPLUG the TV; remove the cover plate; insert the SD card (prepped as explained above); Plug in the TV; Watch the yellow lights blink, then turn blue, then go dark; UNPLUG the TV; remove the SD Card and replace the cover; Plug in the TV; Yellow lights will blink a few times (this is normal); when blinking stops, turn on the TV and you should be good to go. :-)
Pictures attached are from a Toshiba software upgrade bulletin I found online.

Good day!!!


Your color wheel is clapped out. The part is not directly replaceable - they seal it in the light engine and won't sell spares. A rebuilt engine for this set will probably run you between 230 and 270 USD. Replacing it is a cinch if you can get another engine for it.

Picture loss after picture begins to flash. blue and yellow light


Most likely the lamp is dying. Try replacing the lamp before calling a repair tech. What does the Owners manual say about the blink lights?

Having the yellow flashing light


Sounds like maybe a power surge killed the TV. If it is newer, try contacting the Manufacturer for warranty repairs.
