Question about Toshiba 32A33 32" TV
The reason your television keeps blinking the red light is because there is a problem inside the unit.
The problem is not from the power panel, because it is supplying the power, it is from the main board because it is not receiving the power from the power panel that is why it is blinking the red light.
Have it opened and carefully access the main board of the television, and check for any burnt capacitor. Once you have found it, then you can replace the capacitor with a new one. To chane a capacitor, you will have to turn the panel to the other side where you have the tip of the capacitor, then melt it off with a soldering iron, then replace it and solder the new one back in the same spot.
Be very careful in order not to damage any other part on the main board.
If you are not familiar with such technical activity, i will advice you seek technical assistance from a technician.
Take care and good luck

The TV is on protect mode.
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.
If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.
1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.
Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.
