I had a condition on my Toshiba like that and after 4 attempts from a well know discount retailer to repair (it was under warranty), which they never did, I called a Toshiba recommended shop and it took the person apx. 20 min. to repair and the TV hasn’t stopped yet. What he found was a cracked solder connection on the circuit board and simply resoldered it. Total cost was apx. $100 for the service call.

Point being, before condemning any component look for the obvious problems! The cracked solder connection stuck out like a sore thumb, even Ray Charles could have seen it.

Best of luck on your repair!

I had the same issue with my 57 in. Mitsubishi. I fixed it by buying a new projection bulb. The Mitsubishi manual indicated this was the fix for my Mitsubishi TV. Be advised that new projection bulbs are not inexpensive. My TV works like new once the projection bulb was replaced.

Toshiba 57h81 red light blinking


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Doesn't power on - Amber LED Blinking


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.

Tv won't turn on


You will need a service manual to troubleshoot the set to be able to find whats going on with it . Its in shutdown mode with the led flashing. A good manual is available at this link.
