I have a Toshiba 57HDX82 57 in. rear projection TV with HD.I have had it for about five years.
The problem I am having is , the whole set just blacks out , no picture, no sound.
And the power indicator on the front of the set blinks . After between ten minutes to half an hour I can switch it back on again and it may play for between a few minutes or several hours and blink its out again..

Most of the time the Hyper Board failing is the cause of this problem. It will eventually get worse where it also affects the HD ins. Unfortunately the Hyper Boards are no longer available from Toshiba and have not been available for quite some time. My suggestion is to coast with it and replace the Set when the HD ins fail.
That unit has a NTSC tuner. May be HD Ready but it does not have a digital tuner. Unless you live quiet close to a local Broadcaster, rabbit ears would be useless.
The only way you would be able to get HD is using a HD Set Top Box, HD Satellite System,
or HD Cable BOX, using the Componet or HDMI inputs.
Hope this helps
It sounds like you have the closed-captioning set to "text" mode. When set this way, if captioning is present the set clears the area where the text goes. You don't see the box on channels or programs where captioning isn't being used. On most TV remotes a single button controls captions, so it's easy to get into text mode without knowing it.
I have the same tv and had it fixed the problem is most likely the power supply a $50.00 part but I suggest you have a repairman do the fix. Total cost should be around $250.00 for labor and parts.Also unplug your tv for over 4 hours then plug it back in to see if it works they call this a hard reset.If this does not work after 4 hours try unplugging it overnight and then try it. That is what I did to use the tv until I got it fixed. The only thing it could be is the convergence circuitv if this is the case it should cost about $400.00
