Unfortunately, the symptoms you are experiencing are symptomatic of an internal hardware defect, typically a faulty power supply or main board (the 2 most common failure points). This issue could be a manufacturing defect, but is also often caused by a power event (shock/surge, prolonged over/under voltage condition, etc).
There is one step you can take here, both as a possible fix, as well as a diagnostic evaluation 1) Unplug the power cord from the tv
2) Wait at least 1 hour (60+ Minutes)
3) Press and hold the power button (on the set, not the remote) for 60 seconds 4) Keep holding power button while plugging back in, and for another 60 seconds after. When plugging back in, go directly to the wall outlet, bypassing any power strips or surge protectors.
If this reset process does not work, it would unfortunately confirm a hardware failure. That is something that would require repairs to correct. Being only 2 months old, it should be covered under the Toshiba factory warranty still.
So your bet option at that point is to first check with the retailer if you can still return/exchange it within their return policy, and if not to seek warranty repair/replacement through Toshiba.
