Question about Toshiba TP55H60 55" Rear Projection Television
If I uplug the tv for a little while and plug it back in,it turns back on for a very short period of time,then it shuts off and the blinking red lights occur.It will not turn back on until I unplug it for awhile,and then try again only for it to shut off again in about 20 seconds.I have had the tv for 8 years and would rather try to fix it rather than let it go,it still has a great picture and sound.Any help would be appreciated,thank you.
Try the following
2-remove bottom cover on tv
3-tap the power supply frame a few times (where the power cord enters the tv)
I had the blinking red light on my tv. I tried other solutions like removing the red wire a few times etc. Tapping the power supply frame solve the problem.

I tried the solution posted by pmcaire (tapping the power supply frame) and it worked. The tv is working now and I was able to cancel a very expensive service call this morning. ($325)

This most likely is the IC Convergence chip STK392-150. I ordered some on E-bay and the solution did not work. I believe there was a resistor or capacitor that also needed to be replaced so when I plugged in the TV with the replace IC convergence chips, they just popped again. I had to send it to a Toshiba repair show which charged me 400 bucks to fix it. That was 9 months ago.... Guess what, same problem again. Blinking red light. Time for a flat screen.

I had the same problem a few years ago and had a tech come out . It was a bad resistor easy fix. Hard part was having the tv not work when tech was here to trace the problem.

Possible cold solder connections given the age of the unit.
