    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.

The code is 0081 and this is how you do it.

'4 digit' or 'Brand Set' method
1. Turn on your TV.

2. Press TV on your Sky remote control.

3. Hold down select and the red button together for about two seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.

4. Press TV on your Sky remote control again.

5. Key in the Brand Set code for your brand of TV. The light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.
If the light blinks once only, re check the code for your TV and start again at step 1.

6. Press the on/off button (power-top right button on your Sky remote control).

If your TV switched off, press select . The light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.

If your TV did not switch off, press TV , then press the on/off button. Repeat this (press TV , then on/off) until your TV turns off, then press select.

If the light on your Sky remote control blinks three times, your Sky digibox has checked all the possible settings for the code you used. Check that you have the right 4 digit code and start again at step 1.

7. Press TV guide .
If you see the TV Guide screen, the remote control setup process is complete.

If you did not see the TV Guide, you must now set the TV Guide function as follows:

8. Press TV on your Sky remote control.

9. Hold down select and the green button together for about two seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control blinks twice. The remote control setup process is complete.

Television shuts off after being on for 30-60 seconds.

I just had the same problem with mine (Toshiba 42HP85) The TV was fine and shutoff red light blinked twice, and you can turn it on agin right away then it shuts off again. The problem was there are 2 cooling fans you can here at the top rear of the unit, when they get dusty the bearings wear out and shut off. See if you can here 1 or both fans working. If only one is on, you can get a replacement from for 7.95 ea. model # is on the back of the fan. Replace both while you have the cover off, if that's the problem. The unit shutting off is the computer sensing there is a problem the red light is an error warning. Good Luck!
