The flashing red light is basically a fault indicator and can apparently be indicative of a number of issues but usually, it is a problem with the circuit board or power supply.

Manual suggests resetting of the tv to see if that would help (by holding the power button to reset).

If this doesn't help, contact an authorized Toshiba repair center near you.

You may also want to try this:

I turned the 42HP95 TV off one night and it didn't come back on. Had the red LED flashing etc. Found the solution posted by CheapTech: http://www.fixya.com/support/t101749-tv_turned_itself_off_turn_back but didn't take it seriously because these things never work, others were mocking the answer blah blah. Well, just before kicking the damn thing to the curb, I grabbed a screwdriver, took off the back cover, unplugged the little do-hicky sugested in the Solution, and the idiot box came right back on. Go figure. Been working ever since. SO, you might want to try this before busting out the electrical schematics and dropping $$ on repair. Cheers.

Hi,
This is a problem with the PCB assembly. Unfortunately this is a repair that requires a professional. A repair of this nature is around a 1000$ and it often times can be more then that if the part is even still available. As they stopped making plasma's all together. I would guess for quality reasons and repair costs always being so high. I would probably recommend just replacing it with an LCD tv which you can get for well under a 1000$ dollars. Here is an example:

http://www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?sku=205118001&listingid=46406521&dcaid=17902

Prices on these tv's have come down considerably compared to how much you probably payed for this set. I would sell it for parts on craigslist or something because most likely its of use to someone out there for parts. Its just not worth it to have it repaired when you can get a brand new replacement with a warranty. If you have any other questions or need further assistance please let me know.

Thank you,
Lee

Red light is standby, it turns green when TV IS turned on. If the red light is flashing then there is a problem and number of flashers are a code to indicate a fault type.
