It is quite likely that the power board is at fault. Depending on your competency you could replace it. It is not unusual for the red light to be on and the power board not working. Do a google search for spares eg: spares toshiba ....... where .... is your model number. Hope this helps. Peter

    My power button has gone loose so every time i push it in it slides side 2 side...could that be anffect to my television

  • peterbrunnen Aug 19, 2010

    Although it's not great that the power button is loose (heavy handed use?) the fact that it switches on and off still seems to me to indicate a power circuit problem. There are various internal fuses that protect sections of the circuit boards. If you are lucky this could be the problem. Where do you live, so I can hopefully recommend a source of diagnosis for you if you are not capable and knowledgable enough to do this. You do need test meters to work out what is going on and this is quite a tecnical operation, best done if you know what you are doing. It goes without saying that you NEVER have the unit connected or plugged to an electricity supply while looking at the insides of any electrical aparatus!

    Well I am from southampton, N have to say not good when it comes to things like this......if it is the problem u say, how much roughly would that cost

  • peterbrunnen Aug 20, 2010

    ok, give me model number, when and where bought and state screen size as a cross check. I'll have a dig around when I get the information from you and try and advise on best course. I will be honest and tell you if I think it will be cheaper to dump and replace or repair. Eg. I did a search around for a replacement for my 52" bought for £1,500 a few years ago. I can now get one for £399 but the repair would cost at least £200 with no guarantee of it lasting. That is the sort of thing we are up against these days. Hope this is helpful. ps. Used to live in Southampton years and years ago.

I have toshiba 50hm67 replaced worked, then quit working again, and giving blinking yellow lamp error light when turn on...after a few moments tv tries to turn off and back on

OK. I have this same issue. I replaced my bulb a month or so ago. TV worked fine. Then one morning I turned it on and it was on for a good while, till it went to a black screen w/ sound only. Lights were going through the reboot process as designed for 8 attempts before it went to the solid red light. From the red light, if I unplug and plug back in, the tv will come on for a given amount of time, which varies, and then cut to the black screen. A repairman told me that it sounds like the digital board is bad. He wanted $150 for the board and $100 labor. I cannot find anywhere where the board would be located or where I can purchase a replacement.

We just purcased Toshiba 26AV502U, now the screen is blank

Heard back from Toshiba. They said to unplug the TV, wait at least 3 minutes, and then plug it back in. This should allow it to reset itself. Sounded too simple, but after doing just that the tv has worked fine for the last three days! Toshiba noted that if this didn't resolve the problem we should contact them to have a Toshiba Authorized service person come check out the tv. It worked for us, hopefully it'll work for you too. Good Luck
