Question about Toshiba 42HP66 42 in. LCD Television
It is probably the power supply. Parts and labor from an authorized Toshiba repair shop was over $400 and the replacement power supply also failed after only a couple of months, luckily the repair shop replaced it the second time for free. Turns out that Toshiba uses LG parts in their TV.

Never, repeat: NEVER purchase a Toshiba product unless you have so much cash you do not know what to do with it.

I too have this problem with no help from hh Gregg, where I bought the tv, and no help from Toshiba. I resorted to calling the BBB and complaining about the defective workmanship. I took the tv, which is less than 2 years old, apart and found the y-sus board, behind the y-sus board is a foam rubber spacer to seperate the circut board from the backside of the screen. I think this pad is designed to prevent heat buildup in the y-sus board. The pad itself is held on by glue and that glue melted causing the y-sus board to short out. I noticed this after finding a tacky substance behind the board. The heat from the plasma screen melted this and also the pad itself. Toshiba claims no resposibility because the tv was out of warranty. Thanks Toshiba.
