Question about Toshiba 50HM66 52" Television

Plaid Screen Hi, my TV was working fine. My wife turned the TV off and when I turned it on twenty minutes later, I have a plaid screen. There are squares that almost look like copies of each other. The sound is fine, but picture is messed up. I know these tv's work with multiple mirrors.....could this be some kind of mirror issue? The bulb seems fine.

The problem is likely with your seine board or another video board. It will have distorted video/colors and you will see copies of the image in random sizes/places around the screen. If the toshiba menu is distorted it is in later stages of video, if not then earlier. More info will narrow down exacly which board. You can try reseating the LVDS cable, the computer looking one in the middle of the tv. It goes from the video board to the light engine. Unplug the tv and take off the back. The cable is usually white and has a D-type computer like connector with buttons or screws to unlock.

Hello i have recenly purchased a samsung hl-p5685 w when i got it home it worked great for a few day's then all of a sudden it started flickering little green lines here and there so i took it apart...


If you can just take a picture of the screen and upload it on an imagehosting site like imageshak.us and get me the link, I can have a look and confirm if it is a DMD problem. It does sound like it but I just want to be sure. And don't owrry I will help you find a correct replacement for the best price.

Green Plaid Screen


Are you able to access the on-screen menus (like brightness/contrast etc)?


If those menus are appearing over the green screen, then it might be a cable or image source problem. I've often seen this green screen when the HDMI encryption between my cable box and my TV gets messed up. Only solution has been to power cycle the cable box.

If you can use something other than an HDMI cable to connect your TV to your picture source, I suggest trying that and seeing if you can get SD channels again. If you do get them back, it was a cable issue. If you still can't get them, contact your cable/satellite provider, see if there's something up with their signal.

Green Plaid then Vertical Lines, Failure of hard controls, Analog Board?


You are absolutely correct, When anyone complains of vertical lines or bars, the next step is to see if it happens on only digital inputs ( digital board ) , only analog inputs ( analog board ) , or both ( DMD board ) .

Analog board can be purchased at www.partstore.com ,

Green Plaid Screen


I think what you are describing is a form of line paring which is caused by a defective IC in the video circuit those inputs are feeding. Post a email link ad I will send a pic of a screen that has this problem and you can let me know if thats what your experiencing.
