Question about Toshiba 46HM95 46" HDTV

1 Answer

Orange/muddish color?? I'd bought my tv in November 2005 and about a year later, i had almost all the lamps replaced. Ain't it sucks? Then, 5 months afterwards, i have this problem. The color seems odd on the areas when the images are ...say... faces, orange-whiteish walls, tables. Other colors are fine. I think something is wrong with its color lamp. It must be the orange spectra that causes it. I'm new to these kindda problems so please guide me. Thanks

Usually if all 3 indicator lights come on this could be the color wheel is not functioning or the DINe chip needs to be re-soldered. Be sure the lamp door is closed all the way, but the color wheel needs to be looked at first.

Just had the bulb replaced in the beginning of November the T.V. just died on night while watching it. All 3 little lights started to blink at me. I was told it may not be the bulb seeing it was just...

It depends on what kind of bulb you purchased and where you purchased from. If you go to an authorized distributor like, then you're sure to get the OEM--in this case a newer Philips 100W-120W UHP lamp. If you buy from a cheap replacement store, then you're lamp can last anywhere from 1 month to 1 year.

That being said, it may be another component such as a ballast or color wheel. Do you hear sounds or smell anything funny? Those can be telling signs of what's wrong.

Light green and pink spots on my hd tv!!!

Hi--Bought my panasonic pt-52lcx65 on sale for $2200 in 8/05. Replaced the lamp for about $300 in 1/08, just prior to Superbowl. Admittedly, this was to be expected after family members watched lots of tv over 30 months. However, two months later the blue spot emerged in 3/08, and red spot emerged 5/08. Set looks decorated by a Andy Warhol or Van Gogh wannabe. I'm looking for a fix it solution. Dr. Bob Heiliger, Lebanon, OH.

How long does a lamp/bulb of a Toshiba DLP 46HM95 46 in last?

Your bulb may be blowing because of airflow issues or power cycling issues, first does your outlet get switched off at any point in time? if so you may be killing the bulb before it cools, if you turn the set on/off alot and or restart it after off quickly this could lead to permature bulb failure, if the original lamp was not replaced with a proper lamp to match the ballast it could blow the bulb. If your tv is too near a heat vent or the airflow thru the set is not adequate it could blow the bulb.
