Question about Toshiba 62HM15 62" Television

1 Answer

Toshiba 62hm15a thank you. I was also told the green snow could be caused by a T-chip, magnetic field close by, color wheel, or light engine. If I reset the tv, it is fine for a few minutes and the green snow returns. It did that once a month ago and went away. Now it WON"T go away. I only paid $1100 2 years or so ago for it and would opt to buy a new tv vs. putting lots of $$ into this unit. Friends tell me if it's the T-chip it is inexpensive. Any thoughts???

Sony rear projection tv shadow images around people red and green blue and purple


I think your TV has beam convergence problem. Depending on the model there may be user adjustments on the TV to align the beams on to the same spot as close as possible so that color shadows are minimized. Strong magnetic fields such as nearby unshielded speakers can also cause this problem. If that is the case, moving such magnetic field sources away may be the only solution.

Loud humming coming fromthr rear of Toshiba DLP 46HMX85. Humming is not connected to the volume control and sounds like a power supply transformer or a fan.Changes pitch momentarily when certian functions...


YOU are describing a color wheel, in this model it may or may not be available as a part; some of these sets it is only sold with the light engine.

See attached photo of a typical color wheel.

In DLP type sets the wheel turns at up to 12,000 rpm and if bearings in the tiny motor fail it sounds like a fan or even a grinding sound.

Let me know if you have questions.

Need the Part number for the color wheel on my 62HM15A DLP Toshiba rear projection TV.


I think you will find Toshiba does not sell the color wheel seperate--only way to get one is to buy the optical or light engine.

REDENT PURCHASE OF TV'S Have green in some spots.


This is typically referred to as a color purity problem and can be caused by two main things. The first cause can be stray magnetic fields which can 'magnetize' the TV screen either by something magnetic begint oo close to the screen or having turned the direction of the TV while it is turned on. If this is a purity issue caused by magnetic fields, it can usually be cirrected by powering off the TV for about 1/2 hour and turning it back on. All tube TVs have build in 'degaussing' circuits to cure just this issue.

If this doesn't fix it the other cause is a shifted shadow mask inside the picture tube itself and cannot be corrected.

Samsug rear projection tv, everything looks green


Dust accumulation in color wheel, light tunnel, chip area can cause green tint.

It is very delicate area, light tunnel and chip can be easily damaged. Remove light engine assembly and color wheel. Blow dust out. Re-assemble. If the gasket around the color wheel housing is not replaced in the right position, or the housing screws not tightened correctly dust will contaminate the color wheel/light tunnel area.

Call someone that has done it a few times. If near Calgary, call me.
