Mine is Toshiba 55 TZ, have it since 98', shutdown and red light blinking problem, search the net and found out, generally a Convergence IC (stk392-110) problem. bought 2 for $15 at suburban-elect.com (ebay). replaced following direction from http://www.casiasfamily.com/repairlog/tp50h15.html

Open back cover, 9 screws and wirings (pls mark), removed(soldered) a electronic board infront of convergence ic. removed IC (stk392-110) (screwed and soldered).

Replaced everything and voila...! it is now working again..
no more shutsdown and red blinking light. Saves mo $400 for a repariman. of course just be careful with static and stuff.

I don't know how to solder, so I ask friend to do it for me. But I did the rest. Just to give you an idea that it can be done even if you don't know much about electronics. This in no way a recommendation but just stating my experience. Follow at own risk.

Sounds like the DLP lamp failed. You can decipher the Hitachi flashing red light. That should help to be sure.

Red light flashing while green light stays on


I have the same TV, your projection bulb has quit/failed.

A loud pop was heard and the picture has gone followed by a red led fault light clicking on and off.

if your tv is less than 1 year old, and you registered it with Toshiba, you could qualify for a free replacement.

otherwise expect to pay 200.00 for a new bulb from Toshiba.

only good thing is you can replace it yourself, only tool needed is a phillips screwdriver.

you can check EbaY for prices less than 175.00 to 150.00
i am on my 3rd bulb within 4 years....

good luck!

The flashing light is giving you an error code as there has been some sort of failure in the TV. The buzzing sound could be the flyback transformer. Count the number of flashes. I'm sure the code will be for the flyback.
