Shadow down right side of screen on a toshiba 44NHM84 44" DLP television

I have seen this problem on the internet but never a solution. I have a 5" wide shadow down right side of screen on a Toshiba 44NHM84 44" DLP television. The set is barely a year old. It happened overnight one day and has been like this for about 2 months. You can still see the picture through the shadow. Any ideas?

Re: Shadow down right side of screen on a toshiba 44NHM84...

Shadows at the bottom of the screen sound like moisture that was "wicked up" between the screen layers and dryed out leaving a stain. DO NOT get these screens wet, use nothing but a damp soft cloth; just a few drops of water running down the screen can cause a fairly large stain. Some people have suggested that they may be professionally cleaned, but the risk of damage is too great on the user level.

Seeing a dark shadow on the right side of my samsung lcd screen (LN-T4669F). it starts with a black flickering lines on the right side when turned on, which usually goes away after 5 mins. But the dark...

According to your observation in the black flickering lines this fault is from your t-con board there may be a loosed solder or cold solder from the t-con or to the logic board. This kind of trouble is fixable but it should be done in actual testing of the unit to be sure where the fault is. I suggest that you should contact a technician to do it for you and save you from stress. Good day and best regards.

3 problems 1. TV shuts off and on automatically. 2. 2 inch band on left side of screen 3. No picture at all

The band or shadow on the left side of the screen definitely sounds like a defective light tunnel.As for the intermittent pix and shut down this could be the lamp if you have not already changed it.

I have a 44 inch 44nhm84 DLP. When the TV is turned on, it makes a loud humming noise that goes down in intesity twice and then finally a lesser humming noise after the picture comes on. At first I thought...

This does sound like a color wheel. To my knowlege, Toshiba does not sell the Color Wheel seporately. In short, you have to replace the Opical Block. The cost of this is very exspensive and Toshiba may not sell it to you. You may have to go through a Toshiba Service facility to obtain it. Check prices of new LCD sets before investing the money.
Hope this helps,

Shadow top to bottom of screen on left side about 2" wide...

This can be the sync wheel assy, failure in the drive circuit for the display chip, or an illumination fault. You will have to give the set out for service.

Shadowing on right side of TV

Replacing the "light engine" fixed the problem. The technician said that there was a felt-like lining in the light engine to prevent undesirable reflections from the insides of the light-engine hardware, and that it becomes detached and blocks an edge of the picture.

We had a dark line along the right-hand side that was like looking at that portion of the picture through a 1" strip of very dark glass.

Because the DLP is new technology, we purchased an extended warranty from Best Buy (actually, their Magnolia subsidiary) which covered it.

The new light engine was slightly different physically, and the technician had a hard time getting the picture centered and aligned on the screen after installing the new one. In fact, he gave up on the first one and fetched a second one from his truck. He also had problems with the second one, but finally got everything aligned.

Light cone

It is an optical issue as the light engine has to be replaced to fix the problem. I have seen a few DLP Samsungs do this. Hopefully you have some kind of warranty to repair it.

WS-55807: Images are dark on right side of display, but will go away after 3-4 hours.

you could be on the right track get some freeze spray and go around all the parts to see if you can make it act up, same with heatgun or hair dryer when first turned on heat one area at a time to narrow your problem down
