Question about Toshiba 46HM95 46" HDTV
Service center said I may not replace the lamp correctly? I bought 3 lamps since bought TV in Nov. 2005. Your help is greatly appreciated. C. Wan
This is indeed a very common problem with the Toshiba products. The reason I asked about the time is that the television bulbs are estimated to last on average 4,000 viewed hours, which you are only coming up short of 50%.
Toshiba is offering an extended warranty free on the product that does cover the bulb replacement.
is the link for this extended warranty.
After researching your particular make and model, I have found that the average span for a bulb is indeed 9-12 months. Beyond this extended warrant, Toshiba is offering no further assistance, and will only replace it once. They have also been having issues with the color wheel going out at an average cost of $750.00 which under warranty they will replace one time only.
There is nothing you can do beyond replacing the lamps, however my suggestion would be to replace the television itself, and stay away from Toshiba.
