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.

A blue screen will in many sets trigger it to shut off---try unplugging set and or box or receiver if used for a while and plug them back---allow the units to try to reboot.

Most likley what it could be is an interferance in the TV. Modern TV's have a feature that will shut itself off when it is not receving a picture. For instance, after so many minutes of "snow" it will shut off.sometimes this can make the TV think there is no signal at shut itself off.Anyway, I suspect its an interferance issue. Perhaps moving the TV further from the source of the interferance might help.

Tell me a little more about how the receiver is connected to the tv and if this is present on both tvs at the same time and lastly what brand and model of tv you have. I recently had an issue somewhat similar to this but need more information to make an educated hypothesis.

The most common cause for what you are seeing is a shorted gun in the picture tube. When 2 elements (heater and cathode) of one of the guns inside the neck of the picture tube touch, that gun goes full on and overloads the flyback (high voltage) transformer. If it is in the blue gun, the screen will go bright blue with light blue "retrace" lines in it. The computer senses the overload and shuts the set off. At 2 years old the tech most likely tried removing the short by arcing between the elements. This works sometimes but the short often comes back a few months later. Another attempt at removing the short could be tried, and it might work this time, but it may or may not work for long. The ony other solution is to replace the picture tube but that would cost much more than the set is worth. A qualified tech will be able to tell you if this is the problem in your set.
