Well, obviously I didn't have "problem", so perhaps no one bothered to reply. Anyway for anyone interested. I just took this baby out of the box and connected it to my NOT hi-def cable box which was already connected to my tuner, speakers and dvd player which made things very easy. Even without the hi-def cable box which I'm picking up today, to my unaccustomed eye, the SD channels were beautiful. I'm in love and cannot wait to get the hi-def channels today.

Mitzibishi wd73c9 is turning itself off after a few seconds


The set may use the older self check or not:

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turnon the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device andMenu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.
Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:
12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filtercover 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 cablebetween FMT and Engine disconnected

Also take a look at another problem similar to yours I solved--this also might be helpful:

I have had a Hitachi 42" Plasma screen TV for almost 3 years and recently it has had problems. When you turn it on, the TV only stays on for about 10 minutes, and then the screen goes black with the...


The signal from the STU to the Hitachi box is going in the wrong direction.
Is the adaptor that you have switchable? If so, flick the switch in the
other direction and this will fix it. If the adaptor is not switchable get
one that is. Then set the STU output to RGB.

Hope this Helps. -CA

I bought an Alba CDVB4 and the remote isn't right


Hi

Not sure if you found the problem for this, but I had the same problem and couldn't find any reference to this except your question so thought I would put up an answer in case it can help you or anyone else.

Aparently, Alba have got hold of the codes that Toshiba use for their remote controls, so if you have a Toshiba telly an Alba product like this won't work. The only solution being to return it and get a different make.

I returned mine twice for a straight exchange thinking it was just a manufacture fault before I found this out. I then exchanged it for a Bush set top box - only a fiver more - and it now works PERFECT!

I hope this helps some.

Toshiba TP55F81 going into protection mode


Sir,

Since you have recently purchased that TV... It is best to return it have it changed with a new one... It has still a warranty, right? So why give yourself a problem... It is your right as a customer to get satisfied with what was bought. Remember you pay them for that... Exercise your right!

Go!

Toshiba 50h81 Red Blinking light


The protection circuit has been activated and has taken over the power management. It means there is a shorted condition somewhere in one of the 8 or 10 major sections of the set.

The repair involves downloading the error codes into the Toshiba test box and from that determine what section failed and why; then troubleshooting and repairing.

It's a job for a trained tech with the right instruments. The problem could be something as simple as a shorted electrolytic cap in the ripple filters of the main power supply to a massive failure of the high voltage - which is expensive

The first step you sohuld take, in my opinion, is to have the cable company come out and test your line levels to make sure there isn't a lossy connection somewhere.  
You might also try rebooting your cable box by turning it off, unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in.  I have this issue with the same box and I believe the problem may be that the live recording for pausing and rewinding gets bogged down after a certain period of time.  I've had four of these boxes and had this issue with every one of them.  They seem to have a problem when the cable company pushes an update sometimes that corrupts the firmware and causes problems (my fourth box just failed tonight, that makes four failures in about eight months).

Toshiba TP 50H50 Blank Screen


IT sounds like you lost your high voltage going to the picture tubes. This could be due either to part of the main power supply going out due to a defective capicator or semiconductor, or something more serious in the High voltage distribution network. With the age of the set, I would be most inclined to replace it with a new HDTV, and Toshiba still are pretty reliable sets. If you can afford it, a Sony KDS-55A20 puts out a beautiful picture for around $2300.
