    Actually, it ended up being the main power board. They are difficult to find ,but with a little help from google, i was able to pick one up for $140.

Save tho old lamp unit. This could be a digital signal problem. Check the cables and connections feeding the TV. Are you feeding satellite or cable to the set? Does a DVD or VCR input have the same problems? That should help isolate the issue.

SOURCE: Toshiba 50HM66 problem

Let us say you cannot wait for the lamp to go down in price $25-$50 a piece.
Put it in your driveway and draw a little circle on the center of the screen. Call some kids stand 20 feet away and exercise with a toy gun of their choosing.
When it 's all done, I mean completely obliterated, gone, gone, gone; then drag it to the curb and let it wait with satisfaction for the garbage truck.
That is what you do with **** like this Toshiba, Sony, Panasonic and others create so you can sleep at night with their hands in your pockets.
I just can't believe than I wasted $2,500 on this thing.
It's unbelievable how people stop thinking nowadays. I just bought my first and last big screen.

Some possible reasons include: New lamp is generic and or has a issue----excessive dust or dirt inside the unit on fans etc.

Some of these units had a feature in the menu for quick on where lamp is lit at low level all the time---this shortens the life of the lamp etc

If you did not have this issue before lamp replaced I would suspect a generic cheap bulb may have been used instead of the Toshiba cartridge / lamp combo which costs more.

With the quick on if the set has it normal time is 20 seconds for screen to light----set WILL DETECT IF LAMP IS NOT COMING UP FAST ENOUGH OR BRIGHT ENOUGH.

Generic lamps (cheap) will never be as bright or last a long as a OEM lamp unit.

Just some thoughts based on your question.

Here's an excerpt from the Sony Manual online. And the link - http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/webtree.pl?template=EN&mdl=KDF55XS955&content_id=68&category_id=11&problem_id=52

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes three times
If your power/standby indicator is flashing in a pattern of three flashes, this may indicates that the lamp cover is not attached securely. Follow the directions in the Operating Manual under changing your lamp that related to closing and securing the Lamp Cover. Ensure that the Lamp Cover Door is securely fastened by tightening each screw.

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes continously
If your power/standby indicator is flashing continuously, and the lamp cover has been secured, your TV may be in need of service.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up green (not flashing)
A sustained green light indicates your TV is on.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up red (not flashing)
A sustained red light from your power/standby indicator simply indicates that your TV is in standby mode. This shows you that your TV is ready to be turned on with the remote.

Is it the power light and not the lamp light? If the lamp light is flashing then replace the lamp.

I'm still not sure about your question. Let me quess that by saying power/standy light goes to red...that mean your computer
is going into standby mode.!!!! So do it this way..on the left or right top corner of your notebook not the monitor, you should be having a small pin pointing up..I think that pin is use when you close the lid of your Laptop and it make your laptop goes into standby mode.When I mean goes into standby(sleep mode) the first think you can notice that your monitor light will be off and you can still see a very light image.So maybe this pin is stuck try to push it down for several times..
best of luck, takecare

red light indicates lamp is expired. even though you get temporary light, the lamp is shot. Try BULBMAN.COM for a new lamp.
