Toshiba 20vl14 power loss

I have a Toshiba 20vl14 20" lcd T.V. and it works great......for about 50 minutes. Then the blue light flashes a few times and it shuts down. To get it back on, you have to unplug the power chord fot several minutes. Then it works fine the rest of the evening. Any help out there ??

    I have the same problem as well !



    Ended up purchasing a replacement AC adapter from e-bay. I've learned that this is a well known problem and Toshiba has done nothing to help resolve the problem. The model number isn't mentioned on their website either.



    I will never purchase a Toshiba product again.

    My Toshiba 20VL14 LCD television had a similar problem - Occasionally would turn off. Unplugging for a few minutes would get it going again. I suspected the power supply, which I note has been a problem with this unit. Now the TV won't even turn on; when I turn TV on, the stand-by light turns off for 1-2 seconds, then goes back to stand-by. I tried the power supply from my computer (also 19 volts), and it does the same thing. TV is being relegated to garage use, and I don't want to invest much into trying to get it going, but I willing to give it a shot. Still think it's a power supply? Anything else I can try?
    Thanks in advance for any help.

I purchased this TV used from a friend and it did the same thing. I bought a new power source (AC Adapter) and it has worked great for several years now.

The blue light merely indicates that power is getting to your TV. It has internal power supply problems.

What's your problem? won't turn on..... yellow/orange light continually flashes three times...


Toshiba Regza 37in - 37HL17
TV will not turn on - Yellow power ind. Light blinks three times...
Fixed with a firmware update (hard to believe, but true). Search Google for a file named: 2007SEN069.zip (don't worry if the page you find it on doesn't mention the 37HL17 - it worked fine). Unzip the file, and copy the 3 folders and 3 files to the root of a small SD card. The SD card MUST be 2GB or less in size (I used a 1GB card), and it MUST be formatted with FAT-16 (not FAT-32). Mine was pre-formatted as FAT (FAT-16). The SD port is on the back of the TV behind a cover plate near the power cable. You do NOT need to remove the back cover of the TV, just the small cover plate (1 screw). UNPLUG the TV; remove the cover plate; insert the SD card (prepped as explained above); Plug in the TV; Watch the yellow lights blink, then turn blue, then go dark; UNPLUG the TV; remove the SD Card and replace the cover; Plug in the TV; Yellow lights will blink a few times (this is normal); when blinking stops, turn on the TV and you should be good to go. :-)
Pictures attached are from a Toshiba software upgrade bulletin I found online.

I have a Philips 50" Flat HDTV model 50PF9431D/37. Problem with screen turning on. I get sound. I get 9 quick flashes in red. Then after unplugging and plugging back in several times. It then blinks...


I have the exact same problem! I have it hooked up to a power strip now to unplug it by flicking of the power strip and waiting for the red light to go out then I turn it back on while Channeling up 10 X's and then down and up until it comes on. I listen to the sound of the switch which it comes on. I turn it off if it is faint and then back on and channel up. Crazy process but it's been working. It takes about 10 minutes everytime to get the TV on until I get a tech to come out and look at it. The capacitor keeps a charge which is why the light is flashing with a code for 60 seconds./JJ

Red Light Flashing 6 times


When the lamp fails in this unit, often the thermal fuse opens. The error code is 6 blinks. To replace this part requires a great deal of deal of disassembly.

TV loses all power


I had same problem. Finally figured out the power supply was the problem. I ordered a generic replacement and it hasn't shut off again for over a year. The only thing I have notice is there are noise lines in the lower channels (1-6). This may be beause the Toshiba power supply may have a noise filter in the power supply. But the generic was $30 compared to $80 Toshiba
