The fail safe circuit has been engaged to prevent fire and further damage to some of the components inside the set. There is possibly an open circuit or short on the power board or even on the sustain boards of the display and colkor engine. NOT a DIY operation, without ability to read a cicuit diagrams have the right tools and be able to assess voltage outputs.

Try cleaning the optical pickups you can either take covers off and use isopropyl solution with a clean cloth to clean mirror or you can try a cd/dvd cleaning disc from most electronic retailers.

Problem started as a simple cold solder joint. Now the connection has either burnt to the point of not making any connection at all, or the vertical output has gone out due to the stress. As far as the dvd player goes. Sounds like the microprocessor is heating up and going bad. Nothing can be done other than replacing the whole unit.Should be able to order it from Toshiba.

Thanks for using FixYa. If your TV is not powering on then it is due to faulty powerboard. The capacitors on the power board maybe swollen or bulged.

You'll need to replace these capacitors and/or the wholeboard. You can buy the parts from these links--

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

The TV is on protection.

Protection is a special diagnostic mode that will keep the TV in standby as an internal fault had been detected.

The clicking noise is the protection switch that keeps turning the TV off to prevent further damage.

The fact that TV restarts after unplugging lets think to a fault on power supply board inside TV.

When you unplug TV you discharge PSU capacitors, and that is the reason why the TV restarts afterward

First test the unit on a different socket. If you are using a surge protector, remove it.

Try also leaving the TV unplugged for a longer time, let say several hours.

Also unplug all connected device, and leave only the aerial cable, a defective receiver box or DVD can cause the same problem.

If that does not solve the problem, then the TV is faulty, probably a defective PSU (power supply) board. The part must be tested before replacement.

In this case, locate any good qualified repairer.
If you want to DIY you find parts here. You will find schematics and diagram to test the TV on the service and repair manual that can also be purchased from the seller below.

lcd or plasma.
are the lines solid or blurred. do they have sharp edges.
You may have a memory problem with the display which can only be repaired by factory trained technicians, or a brave soul willing to find parts on ebay.

It sounds like the problem is with the DVD's you've been playing. I've gotten those problems before, but not on every DVD. How many different ones did you try playing?

  1. Using the remote control, press the following button sequence in a timely fashion: 1 , 2, 3, 4 (This will release the "Retail Lock" mode)
  2. Enter the User Menu and locate Reset Factory Defaults for the subject model.
  3. Complete the Factory Defaults reset.
  4. Power on the TV.
You can reset and eliminate the lock on some televisions without the remote, using a few tactics. Hold the power button for five seconds. The television will automatically restart. If the lock is still on, unplug the television and remove the battery from the back panel of the television.
