Toshiba HM5295 Light Engine Availability

My problem is I ordered a new light engine assembly from partstore.com on 7/15/08. Their web site says the part usually ships in 4-6 business days. I have had 4 delivery push outs, each time the push out is about a month. Their latest estimated ship date is 10/29/08 but I don't think it will happen. I believe the supplier to partstore has not figured out how to solve the loud noise in the color wheel bearings.

Has anyone else had this 3+ month delivery problem and does anyone know what is causing these light engines with the very loud hum to fail?

Partstore will not contact the supplier to find out what is going on and Toshiba support is useless. If I make too mush fuss, I am afraid they will find an old one and ship it to me.

    OMG. I have EXACTLY the same situation as raywingberg! Only difference is I ordered the part on 7/1/08. I have given up on partstore.com and Toshiba won't tell me anything because I am not an authorized parts distributor. I guess just being a customer counts for nothing. I am leaning toward taking the tv apart myself, removing the color wheel and sending it to a repair shop to be rebuilt. I'll let you know how that works out.

SOURCE: Toshiba 52HM95 Light Engine

I just had mine replaced and it's basically every moving part in the TV. That includes several fans, light engine, lens, etc all in one component. The person who replaced mine got it from a place that has a newly-engineered model that is supposed to last longer. I can tell you that my replacement is not looking as good as the original and I am currently unable to get it to start up any more. Good thing there is a 6 month warranty, but the labor is no refund.

I have a hitachi HDMI 50VG825 50 inch tv and there's a green tint to the picture how do I fix this


First check all your input connections.You're looking for poor connections or wiring( wiggling them may indicate intermittent connection of wire or PCBoard.) Then if those check out OK, you will need a new light engine.
part# UX25304R found at following web site: https://www.encompassparts.com/item/6578691/Hitachi/UX25304R/Lc58_50_Oru_Assy_(Engine)
IMPORTANT NOTE; in order to replace the light engine the entire top of unit must be removed, plus some other parts on the lower assembly. This is a difficult job & not recommended for a novice. If you need the light engine I HIGHLY recommend having a PROFESSIONAL INSTALL IT.

Panasonic PT-52LCX16 - I need a ballast. Do they exist and where?


Partstore.com lists the optical engine and ballast as available by special order: http://www.partstore.com/Part/Matsushita/Panasonic/PT52LCX16/Matsushita/Panasonic/LSXA0771HB/New.aspx . However, Shopjimmy lists the power supply and lamp ballast with the part number of LSEP1206A1; it's out of stock there. Other sites just list this as the power supply so I'm not sure if the other sites include the ballast.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Blue orbs in right side and blue dots all over left side of screen. getting bigger


Hi:
Unfortunely to repair this problem you will have to replace the optics engine assembly, one of the small LCD screens in the engine has failed. This is a common problem with sony light engines, you might try going to http://www.partstore.com to check on a new or used optics engine.
