    Have 52" Toshiba Theaterview TV and it turns itself off periodically, leaving a black screen and a blinking red light on the bottom that shows the TV is on. It just started doing it more often. I unplug, wait a few minutes, re-plug, and that usually fixes it. It doesn't seem to work today. Is this a safety feature? What can I do next?

    My Toshiba 65" has the same problem. It started about six months ago and would just turn off and then back on and usually stay on but has got consistantly worse and now does it constantly. How can I fix this or what does it sound like is wrong. If you know what may be wrong, about how much would it cost to fix?

    yeah i have the same tv 20 inch combo, started like last year about 3 months after i got it. it just turns off like 3 seconds after i turn it on, before i can even see the program. i unplugged it and put it in my garage for a few months and later tried it and it worked. but that only lasts about a month before it does it again. hope someone can help me.

I unscrewed the back of the CRT and vacuumed off the components (tv unplugged of course, and wait a while for capacitors to loose their charge). This seemed to fix the problem. In addition to that, it got rid of the faint red hourglass lines that I had noticed when the screen was supposed to be black.

You may wish to check your system menu, as some Toshiba televisions have a setting for automatic stand-by, to switch off the unit if no buttons are pressed, or after a period of inactivity.

Press the Menu button on your remote and look for settings associated to setting the clock, as this is usually where these are.

It is difficult to give you accurate information without you specify the model number of your televisions, so you may want to reply here and let me know.

Keeps turning off by itself after about 30 minutes


Is your air intake clean or clogged.. Maybe it's overheating causing it to shut off.. Had the same problem didn't replace the bulb but cleaned the intake and it works great again. Worth a try.. Intake is located on the left back pannel of the tv.. outside pannel pops off easly.
