Will not start. screen black as the red light continues to blink. must be unplugged to get the blinking red light to stop. alive but dead.


Hello,

The reason your television does not come on and you only have blinking red light is because there is a problem inside the unit.

The problem mainly is either from the main panel or the power panel of the television. There is a burnt capacitor on the main panel or the power panel that is why it is not powering up.

Unplug the television for a while, about an hour or two, so the high voltage on it will dissipate, then you unscrew the screws at the back. You will have access to the main panel and the power panel, assess it and you will find a burnt capacitor, have it replaced by turning the panel to the other side and melting it off with a soldering iron and replacing it with a new one. Then couple the television back together.

Take care

42hp95 won't power up it clicks twice but red light just keeps blinking


This Toshiba unit must have been a "lemon", as the power unit was replaced about a year ago. It is only 3+ years old & we paid $1600+ for it in 3/96. Too bad. I'll never buy another Toshibaproduct.

42HP95 TV screen flickers off/on


Can be either one of three things 1) logic board, power supply, or unfortunately most likely is your panel. But if I were you I'd get a hold of Toshiba warranty center to diagnose because then they could check voltages with toshiba tech support.

Blinking RED power Light 42hp95 Toshiba


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.

Turned off by itself, blinking red led at front


The clicking sound is the internal protection switch that kicked in because a fault had been detected.

First ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem on dvd with no receiver box connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic chargesaccumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by themain chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protectioncircuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occurr are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing statebecause of the video cable.

Try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.
