Question about Toshiba 62HM95 62" HDTV

1 Answer

Picture seems to be alot darker than before. toshiba 62hm95

Tv was working fine, than one day i turned it on and the picture just seems to be darker than before. Called a tv repair shop and they say that it might be the lamp going in the tv. Thats fine but the tv is only one year old and i can't see the lamp needing to be replaced yet. If the lamp was broken i shouldn't be getting a picture at all you would think? I'm not to sure though. If anybody could help me it would be appreciated.

Re: Picture seems to be alot darker than before. toshiba...

I just replaced a lamp in a Sony LCD projection that was just over a year old and it was bad. It was a VERY dim picture. You have a DLP but, in either case a dim or dark picture is almost always caused by the lamp.

Not real likely it is the lamp unless the picture is dark and has been getting darker.

I doubt it is the lamp.

No picture, siren type noise as restarting

My Toshiba dlp 62hm116 was used for 3 months then stored for 2 years, I turned it on yesterday and it makes a loud grinding noise which I think is probably from the exhaust fan area and the picture is black except white at both vertical sides. It worked fine the last time I used it 2 years ago. Any ideas?

Hello pravinp,

Since this is a DLP set, The bulb becomes suspect. I would take the bulb out and measure the voltage in the socket from which the bulb was taken to determine if the socket is hot. If it is I would then take a resistance reading of the bulb, the resistance should be at 0 ohms. If your bulb is blown replace it with the exact type. The TV might be shutting down to prevent further damage from occurring

I hope this helps
