SOURCE: Power Button Blinking Red

Talli,
The number of blinks, called error codes, is crucial in determining what's wrong with your unit.. In this case the color wheel is faulty and needs to be replaced. In that unit the color wheel assembly is Panasonic p/n# TXFEN01RP4S and is available from many sources for about $390.00 plus shipping.
There are some companies like Tri-State-Module that have taken-up rebuilding color wheel assemblies but I can't be certain that this is one of the brand/models they support. If you can have it rebuilt you might save about half the price of a new one...
For your edification in the future here are the blink codes for your Tv:
1 | Load Shortage
2 | Over Volage
3 | Fan Sos
4 | Main 3.3v
5 | Lamp Disable
6 | Gc3fm-Iic
7 | Gc3fs-Iic
8 | Gc3i-Iic
9 | Color Wheel Stop

If I can help any other way just let me know...
Good Luck!
Bill

SOURCE: 52HM84 Toshiba DLP with apparent failed lamp (replaced ballast)

I found R3 on the original board to be open, along with reading an open on CR1, D5 and D6. All the other transistors and the transformer check out. The only thing I have to do now is find out the specs of the diodes. The replacement board also had CR1, D5 and D6 open (R3 was OK). There had been some threads on various locations where remanufactured boards had bad components (the transistors were changed but not some of the other components).

Green light stays on red light blinks set won,t go on but bulb does not look blown also fan does not run after tv is shut off like it use to before and tv shuts itself off after a while when it does work...


With a dim picture even if lamp looks ok I would make it suspect number one---going to have to decide if you want to buy a new lamp to find out--average life is 1-2 thousand hours.

Repleaced lamp on Toshiba DLP 52HM84... still wont turn on. It goes through the auto start up 8 times and still no screen. The red and green lights blink at the same time. What does this mean?


The fault is indicative of the lamp circuit, check the lamp fittings, check the power circuit and the ballast.
If the voltage insufficiency is present from the power supply it can lead to low current and thus the lamp will not power up. Also if the replaced lamp is faulty, not of original quality or if there are connector issues, this must be rechecked.
Check all the connectors on the power supply side and the motherboard. remove and reconnect.

I have a toshiba 52hm84 green light blinks 10 but the red lights steady i change the lamp still same.no picture


Hello,

Your power supply board is dead, u know basic electronics' and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

I hope this will help in solving the problem.....

No video, shuts off then back on


I checked Toshiba's website and found the manual for the set. The self restarting was indicitive of a lamp failure. The red light was solid while the green light blinked. It would then restart 8 times before both lights would then begin blinking.
