Question about Toshiba TZ50V51 50" Rear Projection Television
Red light is blinking continuously. The TV has no picture or sound. The screen blank

Here's a solution that I received from an TV expert in another website: "This sounds like a power supply problem. i have seen it several time on
your model. i would not keep trying to turn it on it might damage
something else in the tv. the reason it is shutting off is because the
power supply is putting out too much voltage. a repair cost will range
around 300-400. this is a great model and well worth a repair. here is
a web site that might help you in finding a repairman.

SOURCE: We have sound, but no picture
If you replace the lamp and still have no video, the problem could be the ballast. Replacement cost is similar to that of replacing the lamp.

see the link.
the problem are the convergence amps. Its a common problem for this model. Google the model # and you'll see several postings about the blinking light.
