Has anyone replaced the light engine on there T.V. and can you explain to me how to do it. The part is $456, but the shop wants $775. I have already paid $170 for a new lamp about 6 months ago and the T.V. is about 2 1/2 years old and now the light engine. If I can't do it myself, its now worth it to me to keep pouring money into. Any help would be appreciated.

The light enigine shouldn't be that difficult to replace if you have a decent amount of time and are moderately mechanically inclined. You can order the original Toshiba replacement light engine for this model (62HM95) from a major Toshiba parts distributor at the link below:
go to this link and leave them a email with your model number they have replacement lamps for your model alot cheaper than 700. Just click the contact link on the lower left side of the page and let them know what you need. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
this is the worst investment I have ever mede after replacing the bulb for every six months the color wheel goes out and its 750 to repair basically after the initial arm and a leg the TV came back for the other ones And the customer service from Toshiba is even wors than the TV I guarantee you will end up cursing at them before you hang up in there face after the smart *** remarks If you buy this TV your as stupid as I was Toshiba is the worst brand to buy
This shadow is called by the light tunnel in your optical engine. You can have someone come out and try to fix the light engine. I am an authorized samsung tech and about 80 percent of the time I can rebuild the light tunnel. If the tech can not fix the light tunnel you would have to have the optical engine replaced. The light tunnel is something you would not want to attempt yourself. At least you can explain to a shop what your problem is..if they have not heard of this call a diffrent shop.
I just got mine back from the shop withe a similar issue. The picture would dim especially with dark scenes and you could actually hear the lamp popping and clicking. It was not consistent enough that I had to video tape the issue for the technicians. In short, they decided that the ballast was faulty, unfortunately, the only way to replace the ballast is to replace the entire light engine. The part is about $320 and they also replaced the lamp for $150. The extended warranty would have only covered parts I believe so you may have ended up OK.
