From time to time, problems can pop up when owning a Smart TV, so let’s have a look at why your Toshiba Smart TV keeps rebooting.
My Toshiba Smart TV keeps rebooting
You may find that your Toshiba TV keeps rebooting or turning off at random intervals. This is a common issue and can often happen – especially when you’re changing the settings like your volume.
This can be very annoying and highly frustrating, especially if you’re just about to watch your favourite show or movie. You may also find that the TV completely stops responding, restricting you from using the remote control.
The reboot can be triggered by a number of internal or external factors which makes it harder to pinpoint the exact cause behind the issue.
It may be due to a few things such as your TV heating up or the timer setup on the TV could need changing as energy-saving mode is selected and needs to be changed. It could also be due to a faulty or unstable power supply.
How to stop my Toshiba TV from rebooting
Given the wide range of possible causes, there are a number of ways you can try to solve the issue.
The first step for you should be to check with Toshiba to see if the model has a firmware bug and if there is an update available to fix it and if so make sure this is updated to the current version.
One cause of the problem could be that static electricity is building up, so try following these steps:
- Turn off the main supply to the TV or unplug it from the socket.
- Press the TV’s power button, generally situated in the front.
- Hold the button for a few seconds.
- Plug it back in and try navigating using the remote.
If this fails, try going for a factory reset. The procedure might differ in different models, however, it more than likely goes as follows.
- Turn off the TV by long-pressing the main power button.
- Hold for about five seconds.
- Unplug the TV wire or turn off the main supply and leave for at least a minute.
- Plug it back and see if the problem is fixed.

Thank you for the things to try as it is extremely annoying. I mean it sleeps for like 10 minutes at a time with the red button just flashing before it comes back up to the home screen!
I’ve tried unplugging it and waiting for a few minutes and sometimes that works and sometimes not. I don’t want to reset it because then I’d loose all of my apps, and will have to program everything back in (sigh). So maybe a new power cord breaker may help?
