Dear sir/madam,

It is almost certain that the power supply unit is in what is termed Hiccup mode which is simply the power supply shutting down when a fault is sensed , of course when the set is switched off the fault can not be seen so the set switches on again whereupon the fault is sensed again so the set switches off , ad infinitum , hence the flashing power light ! Usual cause is short cct line out transistor or transformer .

Second, is the tv cabinet or table where the tv is placed moving?if so. check out for loose solders especially the power supply section(regulators),and power aux supplys. if the symptom still exist.a certified tv technician is needed.


Thanks
Good Luck

    TV light :

    When it shuts off. Try doing what's called a self-diagnostic test.
    As soon as the television shuts try these steps.

    Pressing on the front panel's ?INPUT? and ?MENU? buttons at the same time, and holding for 5 seconds,
    activates the Self Diagnostic Code Mode. The LED flashes denoting a two digit Error Code, or indicating no problem
    has occured since the last Initalization.

    Please do Note: The front panel buttons must be used, NOT those on the Remote Control.

    ? The number of flashes indicates the value of the MSD (tens digit) of the Error Code.
    ? The flashing then pauses for approximately 1/2 second.
    ? The LED then flashes indicating the value of the LSD (ones digit) of the Error Code.
    ? The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times.
    Example: If the Error Code is ?24?, the LED will flash two times, pause, and then flash four
    times.

    The Error Code designations indicating a malfunction, or no malfunction, are listed below:
    Self Diagnosic Code Description
    1 - 2 = no error detected
    2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current)
    2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies)
    2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection)
    2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source).

    Good luck!

Heard a pop , bulb blew out , replaced bulb , it worked for two days , now red light blinks three times pauses then three times and so on , tv won't turn off light won't turn off unless I unplug...


3 blinks indicates lamp door is not on or has not been reinstalled properly. This also could mean the lamp door switch has failed itself. Try removing the lamp door and putting back on, if that doesnt correct the problem then I recommend having the switch replaced.

Tv will come on but shuts itself back off


Sounds like it just needs a new lamp.
The way to tell is the lights in front:
green blinking as TV reboots = bad lamp
red three blinks = door switch
red four blinks = bad fan
6 or 9 blinks = bad thermal fuse

Toshiba TN55X81 Wont turn on but I hear clicking


Pull the three connectors to the yokes on the convergence board. If the set powers up, it's a good chance the STK392-110's need to be replaced. I fixed one today, and it has been running for 6 hours now.
