Question about Toshiba 46HM95 46" HDTV

Color gets blotchy, then goes screen goes black

It started with a whirring/grinding sound, like something was having a hard time spinning, then the colors got blotchy, until eventually the screen went black. I unplugged it and shut it off for the night (it had been on all day) and this morning it worked fine. I turned it on again this afternoon and about 2 hours later, I started to hear the "whirring" again, the picture was fine, but I shut the TV off anyway. How expensive of a fix will this be?? Is it something I can do myself?

    Just a follow-up, this TV is working fine now. I had a couple weeks of the whirring and the picturing going blotchy but now it works great. Not sure what happened, but I'm glad I didn't get rid of it.

The issue is with the color wheel but you have to replace the engine inorder to get one. The cost would exceed the value.

The LCD is failing and it has either been impacted with something or the edges are leaking. When you press on it you are making a bad connection better. Replace it.

My computer makes a highish pitched whirring noise every time it has to do something slightly difficult, typically a video or interactive things. What is it and can I fix it?


Yes, open the side cover and determine where the noise is coming from - Harddrive, fans, DVD/CD player, etc.. If it's the harddrive, start backing up your important data asap before it goes out completely. If it's a fan, power down the computer and clean the fan. If it's t DVD/CD drive, replace the drive.

Loud grinding noise when the lightbulb is on


Hi,If your tv is a dlp you might be experimenting a color wheel problem.The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming ,grinding,buzzing noises.

Only used a few times and the power is on but nothing showing on the screen and theres no sound its a black ds lite


The reason the screen isn't showing-up is probably because of runny colors or blotchy colors permanently stained on the screen, even when the Nintendo DS Lite is OFF, my guess is that the liquid crystal display (LCD) is cracked. And also, there are multiple reasons for your speakers not working properly. The main reasons for the speakers not working would be the following;
  • Something small must have gotten wedged inside of the speakers.
  • A type of liquid and/or sticky substance leaked into speakers.
  • Lots of pressurized force on upper screen(which could have also caused the damage done to the screen).
What I would recommend is make an appointment with "Nintendo customer service".

Samsung DLP TV shows green color where color should be black


This could be your video board going bad where your input cables are connected --OR-- the color wheel going bad. Hard to tell without a photo or reference though. Try swapping the cables first... and listen for any winding or whirring sounds.

Screen went B&W and I hear a loud humming noise from the TV...


Hi John,

If you are hearing this noises,that's your Color Wheel.
The reason fot that is because your color wheel spins 5000rpms(revolution per minute) and something that modifies the balance if the disc can cause different things.Unfortunately in order to check if your color wheel is working properly you need to open your TV and physically check out.

Grinding= Most probably the color disc is broken and you need to replace it.

Spinning / Buzzing = The bearing of the wheel is loose and is loosing its balance,eventually it will brake.

The best thing to do is to take the color wheel out and spin it ,if you feel that the disc kind of wobbles or doesn't spin smoothly you have to replace it.

You can check DM they have very good prices

Problem with Sony Vaio pcv-rx860 (screen goes black at startup)


I would suggest first to try to take one stick of memory out and try to boot up the pc. Sometimes, one or both of the memory sticks can go bad or the memory slot on the motherboard itself can go bad. If that is not the case I would then remove all of the usb connected to the computer and last i would test the power supply.

Spilled liquid on laptop keyboard, banged on laptop, not working


wow, a little restraint next time :).. My thinkpad was dropped into a hottub let it sit for two weeks and everything except the M key worked.

Anyway I can tell you it's not worth your time, pull the Harddrive out go to tigerdirect get a brand new laptop for around 300-500$ and get a 25$ EIDE (or SATA if so equiped) to USB adapter so at least you can get your documents and what not from the old system..
