Customer: replied 3 months ago.
How long do you think it will be?
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

5 minutes or so , need to pull out the service manual but I can tell you offhand that this problem is located on the main board

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I have repaired my DLP before. Will you be able to tell me if this is something I might be able to repair myself? I did try to do some firmware upgrade but the TV didn't respond to the service port on the SD card.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I would need to know that part I need to purchase. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

well , this is what I was getting ready to tell you , you have to order the upgrade that is usually on a SD card

Are you telling me you already have it ?

Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

Anything else I should know ?

Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

Only other known cause for this 3 blink is the power board if you already tried the upgrade and it wont take it

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I download the zip file for the support.toshiba.ca it was 2007SEN069.ZIP. I purchased a 32 meg SD card unzipped the files and it create a sub directory 2007SEN069 and I copied all the files under this directory on the 32 meg SD card. I turned the TV off inserted the SD card and turn the TV on. It just 3 blinking yellow light still.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Do I need to do anything on the TV to have be boot from the SD card?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Do you know if how to setup the SD card correctly or is there something else I need to do?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
What does it take to replace the power board? Where can I get it?
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

Look at the picture in the link below , I point to Q880 , that is usually the culprit and its part number is ***** , google that if you are into component level repair and you will find quite a few supplier .

Just saw your last reply and before doing anything else try to find an older or at least smaller SD card , I`m sure your tv doesn`t see that 32 gig
Didn`t you get instructions with that ??

Format FAT or FAT 32 , NOT NTFS

Now please let me type down the answers before asking other questions

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No I purchased an older SD 32 meg card.
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

O.k then never mind that , the tv wont take it anyway

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Can you send to somewhere to make sure I have the right firmware upgrade?
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

There is only one for this model and the tv would tell you if you had the wrong one , you would not just have nothing but that 3 blinks

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I think that is the same download sight. I wasn't sure how to format the SD MSDOS-FAT or FAT-32? Also what should the SD card look like after I am done. It has 3 directories and bunch of files. I am not sure how to setup of the SD card to TV will read it. Any ID?
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

you just copy it and let the tv do its stuff

Your tv WILL NOT do it though , it is NOT the problem

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Ya, I know but I think the SD card need to be setup a specific way any idea how?
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

There s NO SETUP on the sd card , you just unzip the file on it and the tv will find it and that is ALL

Your tv is not in shape to do that

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
What do you mean TV is not in shape?
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

Its broken , not working , defective etc.

Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

That will take more than a software upgrade

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
why do you say that? I don't think I have the SD card setup correctly.
Expert:  Jack replied 3 months ago.

I will have to opt out now.

You don`t have to do anything , your question will be reposted for other techs. to see and jump in.
just standby and someone should be with you shortly .
PS. DO NOT rate or it will hinder the repost .
