Question about Toshiba 65HM167 65" Projection Television
HI, Before going on vacation, I unplugged the set for a week. When trying to power it up, all I get is the lamp light (yellow) blinking 3 times every 10 seconds or so. The Toshiba rep said the lamp is fine but could not tell me the cause or cure. This happened once befoer and a different rep gave me a way to trick the unit into rebooting. Any help is greatly appreciated. The units is a 65HM167, and is one month out of warranty.
I fixed mine with the same exact issue! Thanks to the folks at avsforums. Get a 4gb or smaller SD card, download the firmware from the toshiba support website, place it on the card. Unplug tv, put card in tv in the service port, plug in the tv! 3 yellow lights should turn to a blue solid light, unplug the tv again, remove the sd card. Plug it back in and enjoy!

I just kept on trying to hit the on botton on the remote, then at some point after about 10 mins I just pushed and hold down on the on button and it magically turned on. Dunno if this will work for anyone else but its worth a try.

I think we need to have a class action lawsuit against toshiba because my tv is just 3 yrs old 1 month over the warranty and now it blinks 3 times and i am told it is the mainboard and it will cost $850 to fix it.

Probably you have to check your remote control.

Guest...you are not going to have any luck! If you can believe this our TV is STILL broken. And it has been since July 7th!!!! I have been fighting with Toshiba I have reported them to bbb and also to the federal trade commission. I have faxed the work order from the first time someone came out to look at it, a copy of my cell phone bill to prove the first time I called was really way back in July!! It is a main board in the tv and they keep telling me it is on "extensive backorder" Finally they offered us 3 options...a refurbished 65in, a brand new 52in LCD or a full refund in 6 weeks!! I will NEVER buy a Toshiba anything again. I suggest you call this number 1 800 351 5481. When someone picks up tell them you need to talk to Toshiba in regards to a TV, they will transfer you directly to them. The sooner you start a file with them the better because as you can see when I posted this and yes it is still broken. I have also faxed copies of everything we have been dealing with to the offices of Phillip Schoonover who is the CEO of circuit city where we bought the TV and also Atsutoshi Nishida the CEO of Toshiba. You should just ask to talk to Evette....she is the customer service supervisor who I have been dealing with. If there is anything else I can help you with please let me know....trust me I have ALL the information you will need.
