Toshiba TV model CZ27V51 - picture+audio off, red light flashing

I have a 27 inch Toshiba TV model CZ27V51. Picture and audio go off and the red power light on front of set starts flashing (but the set is still on because it can be turned off with the remote and a flash of light is seen as it shuts off). I took the back off and found that by propping up the back end of the circuit board (flexing the board) I could solve the problem for varying periods of time. So, I Inspected the board carefully, looking for broken traces, loose pins, cracks in solder, cracks in the circuit board - anything that might be forced into electrical contact by flexing the circuit board. Found nothing. Then, I theorized one of the voltages coming from the power supply could be the, I inspected that area of the circuit board but still nothing. Does anyone know the fix for this? I would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks, Rey. But I don't have a service manual or schematic (and
    can't find one). So, I don't know where to look on the circuit
    board for the video section. And, if I did know where to look I
    am not sure how to test a diode, transistor or transformer. I do
    have a digital mulitimeter, though. Thanks for your help.

Hello, I have (had) a Toshiba 32AFX62, 32" flat panel TV. I had the same problem, no picture, no sound, flashing red light. Removed the back and my brother an Electronic Technician noticed a small resistor which made a smoke ring when pluged in. That small resistor is burned out but there is another component which shorted the resistor out. Its best to replace the entire circuit board DELICATELY. Repair service wants $90.00 to walk into the house, $150.00hr labor, and cost of circuit board. Time to buy a new TV. Good Luck.

Toshiba TV model CZ27V51 - Picture+Audo Off, Red light flashing

If you can make the set act up by flexing the board, it certainly sounds like a bad connection. I worked on this specific set before and am well aware of some problems with it. You say you could not find any bad connections.... but do you know HOW to locate them ? Some joints can look perfectly normal to someone who is not experienced but be in fact a bad joint. I don't know how this works...but for a small cash fee arranged through this site, I can give you more specific information on what to look for.

Sony 27"TV will not turn on

The picture tube on your tv is dead, you need to replace it. It probably will be worthing just purchasing a new set, because the cost of repairing it will be close to the purchase of a new one.

You may have a bad solder joint on the horizontal driver transformer or somewhere else in the set. I found this problem with this transformer several times. Stargazer
