    Wow thanks, I will go ahead and purchase that then. I appreciate that! I just got this tv from a friend that said it was on its way to its funeral! So i figured maybe I could have someone fix it or do it myself. Do you believe it's possible to do it myself? Thanks again for the help though, Really do appreciate it!

How many times does the light blink? It should blink a number of times, pause then blink the same amount then pause. Try to count the blinks then let me know. Also how long does it run before shutting down if any?

    It sounds like it might be video or tuner related. You will probaly need a service manual to figure it out. I am enclosing a link where you can purchase one for 10.99 and they will provide free support to help you diagnose the problem. They will also email the manual to you if you return to the site and request that they email it to you. Hers the link if you want the service manual for your set.

    as long as you careful, get the manual and get the support you should be fine rebuilding the set. You just have to be cautious around the voltages within the set. Proceed cool and calm and you should be fine.

Red power lights blinks and tv will cut off. sometimes after you unplug it it will come on after about 10 min. now it will not come on unless you unplug it and then it will work about 5 min and cut off...

depending on the age of your tv, this appears to be a common issue. Blame it on the ballast board. your ballast might not be able to provide the lamp w/ enough voltage to keep the image on for longer period of times. or it could simply be that you need a new tv lamp.

Model 55X70 Toshiba Projection tv

dont know about warranties but horizontal lines means your horizontal frequency which runs about everything has drifted off sync and if too high or low it will activate shut down circuits in high voltage and power suppy, even causing HOT transistor to short. good luck and call a tech.

Blinking power button

You likely have bad convergence output IC's that have caused one of the supply fuses to blow. This repair will have to be performed by a qualified technician. If you were in our area and has us repair this the total cost of the repair would be about $340 if I am correct about the cause of your problem.
