    Looks like the power supply board (first board after ac supply cord) has a couple of numbers;

    I have a board like that which is PE0071 E-1 and a board before it which is PE0071 E-2 which is what the power cord is attached to.

This is not due to a fuse so whoever told you that is wrong. This problem is triggered by faulty transistors on the 5V and/or 25V lines. The transistor circuit failure is triggered by faulty protection circuitry usually resistors. Bottom line: You will need to have fair amount of knowledge about using a multimeter and excellent soldering skills to resolve this problem. Best solution would be to spend about 75-100$ to obtain a replacement board. For that though you will need to get me the part number off the power supply board located inside the tv. It usually starts with 75xxxxxx

The audio is getting to the speakers from the AV terminal board. I would suggest to check the audio settings on your TV even after doing factory settings.

Red light blinking turn

How many times do this standby light blinks at one time switch ON? Count it. These blinks are fault indications, and are called blinking codes. From the number of these blinks, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside the TV. If you're sound in electronics, check this link. Pull up older posts there by its left side bar, or view it in 'Timeslide' option. Blinking codes to Toshiba TVs are given in detail.

My toshiba 42hl196 popped when I turned it on last month. 3 blinking lights. Brought to tv repair - they say it was the power supply and tried replacing the ICs with a kit - did not work. Said coul

Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
If the fault is detected with SMPS [Power supply board],it will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
