    ignore my first post. u have got to try few things before that

    First, unplug the tv and connect it directly to the power line,
    bypassing the surge protector to make sure that is not the problem -
    then after you have gotten everything fixed up you can reconnect it. I
    don't trust surge protectors either.

    Second; the firt thing to do whenever the tv acts up is to reset the
    internal software codes that control everything that goes on
    internally. Follow the manual for the reset operation or just unplug
    the power cord for 4 hours or overnight. That will automatically reset
    everything to the factory defualt settings.

    If the reset does not help and you still cannot get the channel to
    change, try using the manual controls on the front panel rather than
    the remote.

    If you still get no picture after the reset, try a vcr or dvd input to see if you can get it with external video input.

    When you say there is no picture, do you mean the screen is totally
    dark, or do you see some raster or flicker or anything coming or
    flashing on the screen? If the screen is totally dark and there is
    nothing on it (you may need to view it in a totally dark room to tell
    if it is really totally dark) then it means you have probalby lost the
    high voltage.

    If there is some evidence of light on the screen, it means the high
    voltage is okey and the set has lost its video; and maybe the tuner or
    front end electronics has all been damaged by the switching transients
    during the power problems.

    The moving it back and forth from the place u live the first time
    might have shook a connection back into place, if none of this works
    you might have to go back to the repair shop. There is very little an
    average homeowner can do to repair electronics.

I believe the blue lamp in my 57H81 is going bad.

You need to replace convergence out chips in your Toshiba 57H81 tv by qualified tech because 3-D look picture in rear projection tv shows some thing wrong with convergence output chips.
Your tv model number shows it is rear projection tv that use 3 tubes to make color picture on front screen where as dlp tv use one lamp as back light source to present picture at front screen that is generated in light engine.

Red power light continuously blinking. no picture no sound.

It could be the lamp went out and needs replacement. The Toshiba website states when this happens to unplug the televison for 10 minutes then plug back in. If that does not work then try another power outlet. If that does not work then call for service

Stay on power light but no light or sound

No picture, no sound and all the fuses are ok, means there are no shorted components in the circuit, more than likely the tv is not generating horizontal drive to produce and feed hv to the crt and no b+ for the audio circuit. The tv is big enough to keep and repair if you are cosidering a repair estimated around 400dlls. I think the problem would be located in the deflection board.

Have a Toshiba TP50G50 Projection televison with no picture. Have 100 volts to power board

100 volts is too low to power the entire projection TV. Usually with rear projection TVs there are three tubes that create your picture on the screen. To power those tubes, they each require a high voltage (usually around 10,000 volts - yes ten thousand) that is produced by a high-voltage step-up transformer call a 'Tripler' - since it powers all three tubes. This device and the rest of the TV require full utility voltage (120 - 130 volts AC) to properly power the unit. Correct the voltage and try again - is the house / residence voltage like that in each room? IF so, you probably have other issues with devices you probably haven't picked up on.

Cable companies are slowly but surely reducing the channels you can get without a digital box, which they will supply. You will need to cantact them and rent a HD cable box or converter from them that will work with your displays built-in tuner. However, if your display is HD compatible, then I would just asked your cable company for and non-DVR HD cabe box and connect it to your display with component cables....
