Toshiba Cinema Series TV won't turn on

When I attempt to turn on my Toshiba Cinema Series HDTV, the picture does not come on. At times the sound will be there, but no picture. A small red light near the power button on the front of the st flashes. Each time I have to turn off the power to the entire system, essentially re-booting. Then the TV comes on after pressing the start button on the remote. This happens 100% of the time when I attempt to turn on the set for the day or evening. TV repair guy blames the system guy, and system guy blames the TV guy. Any help would be appreciated.

    When I turn the tv on with the remote or on the tv, nothing happens. A red light near the power button on the tv flashes continually. I have unplugged the tv and tried again. Same results.

    Yep, just got it as a hand me down from a friend, they had it for 8 years, worked perfect. Now, just a blinking power light and nothing....uuuggh!

    When you press the power button, the power light comes on for about 15 seconds and then turns itself off before any picture shows up.

We finally had a repair man out and he replaced 2 convergence IC. They were $80 each so get out the check book! Works fine now!

Same problem here. Will make a click like it turns on but will just flash. Had this tv for about 10 years. im starting to suspect a timer to disable the tv so you have to fix it over time.

You will need to trouble shoot the start up and shutdown circuits. Often this is a minor component failing causing the set to not power up or go into protective shutdown. Do you have the service manual for this TV?
