The set is going into shutdown because the blue picture tube is shorted G1 to cathode. This explains the blue picture and the set goes into shutdown due to the screen shorted. Scrivitron

That usually means the x-ray protect circuit was triggered. The set is going into protect shutdown for some reason. It may be a valid trigger to a lame problem or a fault in the detection circuit itself. I would hang a scope on there and just watch to see if there is a strange movement in voltage values, and if so, troubleshoot it from there. The blue picture is a result of a convergence problem. If you don't know much abou TV repair, I would suggest taking it to a Toshiba authorized servicer for proper diagnosis.

TV would shut off by itself and then several minutes later be able to be turned back on. A day later it shut off by itself, turned itself back on, shut its self off then a huge pop sound as purple and...

That tv is very old and it just reached its life expectancy. It could be repaired but it will cost you more than a brand new tv. Black Friday coming up and you will find a great deal.

Won't start, changed plug, set gap on magneto still no spark

To test magneto leave properly mounted and gapped to the motor. unplug black wire from magneto. Crank motor and test for spark. If you get spark with the wire unplugged then the magneto is fine and your problem is in the wiring system, likely a safety switch. If you have no spark with the wire unplugged then the magneto is bad and needs to be replaced.
BTW, the black wire is a ground. That is what shuts the motor off when you turn the key to off or when you get out of the seat, etc. So the motor will not shut off with that wire unplugged. Also, putting any voltage on that wire will immediately damage the coil.

3 YEAR OLD SANYO DP 32746. SHUT ITSELF OFF, CAN NOT TURN BACK ON

If you leave the tv unplugged for 2 days (atleast) then plug it back in and try to turn it on and if it comes on its the power supply board. If it comes back on it will probably shut off between 30min to 4hrs and you would have to unplug it for 2 days again. All the power needs to drain out of the tv. If thats the case take the back pannel off and check the part number out on the internet. Not hard to do becarefull touching things the power supply does store a little bit or shock in it. Good Luck.
