Resolved Question:

Toshiba 42HL196 - Red light flashing 3 times consistently (for days). Pressing power button and holding for 5 secs clicks once, no other response. Remote has not worked to turn on for over a year but will turn off after playing with it (before this happened). I have the back off and have checked the fuse = continuity. Have moved power cord to another circuit breaker, same problems. Which board is most likely causing the problem? I found a button board and AC input board at reasonable prices.
