Question about Toshiba 65HX81 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Picture went off then Red light blinks all the time


My Toshiba 65H81 (2001) picture went off and red power led blinks constantly. Unplug / replug will keep light off, but if trying to turn on, just blinks with no picture.

What can this be? And will it be easy to fix?

I keep staring at a blank screen :-(

Thanks for any help

    I am looking to buy this model and it has the red light blinking and no picture. I bought the service manual and have heard talk about replacing the PD0074 board. I see these are going for $287.00+

    Does the step by step allow you to trouble shoot the board and just replace parts on it rather than replace the wole thing?

    Could you please email me the step by step too? Thanks.

    BTW If anyone wants a peek at the Service Manual let me know.

    I have the same problem as others have dexcribed. What can be done to fix this? I was just watching a program and it went out?

    My tv for the past several weeks was blury for the first few moments
    when you turn on the TV - it would go away after a couple minutes - but
    it was taking longer and longer.

    Any help would be great.

I’m having a problem with my Toshiba 42HL196. Once or twice the red LED was flashing and I held the power button in for a bit and it started working again. Today I was having cable installed and after a...

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.

Will not power up. Red power light only blinks.

If you have sound and no picture, it's time for a new lamp.

In the manual check under LED indication, It explains the blinking lights, unless your outside at night looking up!

Red power light continuously blinking. no picture no sound.

It could be the lamp went out and needs replacement. The Toshiba website states when this happens to unplug the televison for 10 minutes then plug back in. If that does not work then try another power outlet. If that does not work then call for service

Toshiba 60HX70 distorted picture, blinking red light

You could have a Power Supply Regulator Problem. Many times these sets will not hold Horizontal sync when there is excessive High Voltage or a problem with the High Voltage Regulation. This is not a problem you want to deal with yourself. I would recommend a Toshiba Repair Facility to come out and diagnose it.
Hope this helps,
