    iDENTICAL ISSUE - TV power goes on, select channel, channel appears for literally 1 second and then goes blank.. At same time, the red indicator light goes into a continuous phase of flashing 3 times , pausing, flashing 3 times etc. Its almost like the set has gone into some form of hibernation mode - but nowhere does it say how to re-set this

    Irritating - only a cheap telly, but now basically useless due to this

Hello All,
The problem that is happening is due to the shutdown circuit activating, which is an indication of excessive current flow. This may indicate a problem in the High Voltage section or in the power supply feed from the HV section. In any case this problem is best dealt with by a trained professional. I would suggest that you take the TV to a qualified TV repair person and have them check it out.
I hope this helps
Thank you,

No picture or audio.power light blink on once and turns off


The real deal here is the protection circuit has activated. This is caused whenever an excessive amount of current is being drawn from the main power supply. Upon detection of same, it immediately takes over the power management of the set and shuts it down. The clicking sound you hear is the ON relay turning on the set, but immediately the power mangement system shuts it OFF. You should hear two clicks, but they may be so close together that it sounds like one click.

This set is getting rather ancient and I would not recommend you spend much money on it for this reason: It is highly likely that once the set if repaired that another failure would occur. This is because of the law of averages; the first failure is often followed by another failure from anywhere within the set.

POWER WILL NOT STAY ON. IT GOES OFF IMMEDIATELY WHEN TURNED ON


i dont think the v c r has anything to do with your problem the fact that it started turning off and back on indicates that there is a shut down problem starting in your tv ,,it turns off for safety reasons it was made to do just this when there is an over voltage problem with your high voltage section of your tv to keep from any fire starting ,this is its only safety ...so the turning off is indicating that it has a power problem ,i think it would be safe also to say that its not the remote either i think you need to cary tv to shop and have it checked by a rep man but if you know how to trouble shoot the problem i would look in the high voltage area for the problem like the voltage being too high an the annode lead ,,,,the red wire is verry high volts be careful,,,,,,, also some toshiba tv had problems in lv power supply from capaciators being leaky ,,,,,,,

Set won't stay on


hi im joe i have the same problem, but before this happened it turned the channel by its self and hade a mind of its own. to get it on unplug it. then as you plug it in repeatedly press the power button on the REMOTE. this will get it to turn on. if you get it on and some how get to control it then go into menu and put the fpd lock on. now you can only use the remote but at least it works. :)

TV LED Flashes then TV shuts itself off


capacitor problems in power supply or a regulater isolate the power suppley by disconecting the line output stage/unplug scan coils for example and run a 60w bulb as a dummy load one wire to earth and the other to rail voltage colecter of line output transister if the bulb glows steady the power supplys fine
