Dear Sir/Madam,

Although these effects are temporary but they can cause screen burn-in problems later. The Toshiba 42HP66 comes with default picture settings, which is basically the Sports mode. The sports mode reproduces vivid mode effects. If you switch the picture mode to standard then it will decrease the contrast and brightness. According to a C-NET test, it has been found that the 42HP66 does not reproduce the same black level quality like some of the first-tier plasma televisions. Another drawback is the inconsistency in the color especially in light and dark scenes. There is also a considerable video noise in the picture.
The Toshiba 42HP66 has been enhanced with a colorimeter to ensure the delivery of best picture quality. It also has a Sencore High-Definition signal generator, as well as a specialized software suite that can calibrate the television to the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) standard color temperature of D6500K. Overall, the 42HP66 ives quite a performance...

Thanks
Good Luck

Toshiba's CrystalScan HDSC technology upconverts all video signals (including 480i/p) to 1080iHD, resulting in a significant reduction in jagged line artifacts to create the sharpest, most realistic picture possible from every source.

Try swapping the 2 hadmi inputs, this is probably a compatibility issue with one of the two devices connected through HDMI.

    Try to understand if the problem is caused by a bad HDMI cable, or if it is the receiver.

    Both the HDMI cable and the TV receiver box are relatively not very expensive to replace, unless you are using an expensive sat box.
    Find out what is causing the problem, and replace it.


    If the problem is on your TV, and you get this with any device Connected to HDMI 1, then the signal board on the TV must be replaced, in this case call the phone number listed on the user manual.

    If this TV has RCA or Composite input you can also try connecting DVD on RCA or Composite , and having the receiver on HDMI 2.

Screen is white blank 2 inches on each side of picture.


Switch to the an input that is not being used. The bars are present, go into the menu and reset the tv to factory settings. If the bars are present it would indicate hardware failure.

If the blank bars are not present on the other input, something is going on with the cord, or a setting in your set top box

Toshiba 42HP66, HDMI problems


Your Cable box might need to be reprogrammed. Call the cable company and they will drive you thru the steps to program it, this way you will get the channels. This process might take you 30-45 minutes.

Toshiba 42Hp66 No picture only sound


to test the zsus board check for a low resistance on the fuse to ground. sadly if the zsus is bad, the ysus and one or both of the driver boards is probably also bad. best to change all at once as a defective one can tacke out the others.

42HP66 - Cracked the Glass plasma screen


It is worthless. The glass itself is the sealed plasma display unit. once it is cracked it will not work correctly. The most expensive part of the set.
