    I have the same problem. TV shuts itself off after a period of time sometimes its 10 min sometimes its 30 or even an hour. I have to unplug for at least 30 min for it to restart and then it does the same thing. There are no timers set I have checked twice, just bought from Brandsmart last week. Any suggestions without having to pack it up and take back to store?

    I purchased a 50HP95 in November of 2005. The TV is a little over 2

    years old and I woke up this morning to a red blinking light on the front of the set and it will not turn on. I tried unplugging the TV for several hours, and when I plugged it back in the light started blinking immediately. I tried turning it on with both the remote and the power button on the side of the TV Nothing worked!

    We got our 50hp95 in Dec. of 2005. There's red blinking light on the front of the set but it won't power on. Unplugged the TV and then plugged it back in. Nothing-just died!

    Repairman charges $200 to come take it, needs a module that will cost $600 and then another $200 to bring back. Unbelieveble $1000. Might as well just buy a new one!!!

    I had the same problem. Found a repairman to fix it for $500 dollars. I had to take it down and pack it up, then put it back up in order to save $450(if repairman came to get it). I wrote to and called Toshiba. I sent them lists of people with the same complaints and they just don't seem to care. I will never buy another Toshiba product!!!

    Having the same issue with 50HP95. linking power light and not powering up. Checked all obvious. The original call was for cable being out. The box was out. Would not power up ( nothing actually ) cable guy replaced box and then customer called again cause TV was doing the blinking thing. I checked connections because there was renters there and even though they say didnt do nothin, it usually ends up they did. So, checked everything, all connections checked power supply with meter. All checked ok. Power surge "seemed" to be working fine. It seemed to be a decent one anyway. It bothers me that the cable box went out and the TV stopped working. Any suggestions? I'd like to be sure this doesn't happen again. Thanks

I am currently having the blinking light issue but the tv will not reset once it is unplugged. The Toshiba repair guy said that it is the power board ($500) and that it would be $350 in labor. He said there are 10 boards in that tv and that any one of them could go out after some time. He said Plasmas in general are having this issue, but this modle is notorious for this problem.

Usually a flashing power light on a rear projection TV means a bad bulb, try replacing the bulb. Also try unplugging it for 10-15 minutes, then come back and plug it in and try again. Also if its been a long time since its been serviced it could be dust buildup causing overheating, do you hear the cooling fan running? It could also be a failed cooling fan. Generally the first thing i do with projection TV's is clean them, clean all the vents, pull the bulb out, clean out the cooling fan and bulb housing, and then try a new bulb. If that doesn't fix it then its a bigger internal problem and there is no quick fix but have it serviced.

Tv keeps turning off?

cutta, you will most often hear a click on boot then the fans start up and lamp will then fire. The picture will start to show what point does it shut off? and do you hear a click when the tv is turning off? Is it the complete tv shutting down, fans and everything that turns off? Do you see any lights on the the front panel "POWER", "STATUS" or "LAMP", what are they doing? If you see a Power, Status or Lamp light after it shuts off the below are what they mean if there is an issue. POWER - STATUS - LAMP - CONDITION/ISSUE: Off - Yellow - Off - Temp. high/dirty filter/excess room temp Off - Off - Yellow - 4000 hrs. Lamp usage warning Off - Off - Blink Yellow - Lamp Cover open Off - Blink Yellow - Off - Air Filter Cover open Off - Off - Red - Lamp failure (failed to turn On or broken) Off - Blink Red - Off - Fan Has Stopped Off - Red - Off - Circuit failure (short) or DVI cable disconnected If you want to check for the last "Error Code", after you first turn the TV on, by pressing the front panel ?DEVICE? and ?MENU? buttons at the same time and holding them for 5 seconds, it activates the Error Code Mode. The ?Power LED Light? blinks/flashes (1/2 sec delay) and then flashes again denoting a two digit Error Code indicating no problem or an error has occured since the last Initalization. i.e. "Power light" blinks 3 times (1/2 second delay) and then blinks 4 times then 1 sec delay and repeats a few times. This would mean "Error 34 - Lamp abnormality". See below for error codes..... Error Code - Description or issue 12 - No Error detected, check Power Supply 32 - Lamp Cover is open 33 - Air Filter Cover is open 34 - Lamp abnormality 36 - Light Engine (DMD or LAMP Fan stopped) 37 - Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped 38 - Lamp temperature high 39 - DMD temperature high 41 - Short is detected 44 - DVI cable between FMT & Engine disconnected. Sorry for the long answer but it was an open ended question.
