The blinking signals that the power source has been shut down by its own protection system because another component has failed. When this happens it's usually a very big defect, expensive to fix - the blinking is a code, telling you with approximation what part has failed.
Most likely the previous owners have encountered this fault, decided that it's not worth fixing it and kept the tv for parts (even if you will only need the screen and it's worth keeping it). You should do the same.

    The error is displayed when you start the tv with the Menu button pressed for at least 2 seconds. If no error is displayed now it means that the fault has extended to the control processor - a very bad news. A steady red means that the power source is completely offline, the click is the power relay being disengaged. Definitely this tv is dead.

best option is to look for one on one of the online auction sites.
be sure it transmits on the same frequency there should be tags on the locomotive & transmitter identifying the frequency.

My new toshiba 32 inch regza turns on but thats all it does? no picture, sound even menu dosnt come up

First if a "new" set and if in warranty--have them deal with the problem.

If nothing on remote except on and off works--it is a micro problem (microprocessor) in the set.

I assume you did unplug the set---wait and plug it back as that could allow the micro to reset.

The key clue here is nothing on remote works except on/off?

My horn does not work. I press the horn, but all i hear is a click in the fuse box. Checked the fuse and it is good. I bought it from a auction and had problems with the alarm and locking because i didnt...

If the horn fuse ( Fuse #26 ) is installed and has power on both sides of the fuse, you might want to check that the horn connector is still on the horns.

The horn relay is not serviceable in the fuse panel.

You can test the horn connector for power, the Yellow w/ Light Green wire, when the horn button is pressed.

Toshiba 40XV645U - No picture on HDMI 1 when TV is turned on

I assume that you have set the input source selction as in Page 32 and HDMI 1 is solid and and not grayed out. If so check the Preferences menu and see if there is an option for power on set up.
Also look at page 51 about HDMI feature settings. I assume you turn the cable box on first before turning the TV on.

With the replacement screen did you replace the inverter board? Many laptop screens also have a very small fuse built into their power connecttions. Check this also.

Problem with Toshiba Laptop A215-S7437

If you go into control panel and check out your power options. Make sure that your system is set to never shut off the monitor. This will of course waste battery power (if you run off battery) so you will have to decide which is best for you.
If the power settings are not to blame then maybe you do have a hardware issue. Some laptops have a hotkey combination that if coincidentally you are typing and you press the right key combination you send it into hibernation. You can check this via the power settings.

almost sounds like it's in night shot mode, but I don't think to 2000 has that. sometimes during shipping the board to board connectors may have come loose. I would check for a loose one off the 3 ccd assembly. Thats a pretty good unit you have there, worth looking into. be carefull taking it apart there is a some 4 pin ribbon cable that can rip, just take it slow. I work on alot of these. they are a workhorse.
