Question about Toshiba 46H84 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

No picture, but red light on front comes on

The TV broke in a similar manner in Jan. of this year--no picture, but the red power led on the front came on. The TV repair place stated that the convergence board needed to be replaced, so I had it fixed for about $300. So now within the last month (and just out of the repair's warranty) it goes blank again. I assumed it was the same problem as before and wanted to same some momney. I did some research and found that I could replace the STKs for about $40 and a little soldering--I am not new to soldering. I found the same model STKs online and went ahead and replaced them, being very careful to mount the heatsinks properly, make good solder joints, and not apply too much heat to any of the STK leads. I put the TV back together and I find that that nothing is resolved--still no picture. So, my questions are: What else could be broken if I have no picture and the STKs have been replaced? Or is it more likely that I installed the STKs improperly. In my humble opinion I did some rather good soldering, so my hunch is that something else is broke. Thanks.

Re: No picture, but red light on front comes on

If one your convergence IC's is bad then you will still see a picture but the colors will not line up, especially around the edges. I have never seen a Toshiba projection set completely lose the picture because of a defective convergence IC. If your vertical output IC has failed or cracked loose then that is exactly what you will see - no picture! The vertical output IC is usually on the same board as the convergence outputs which explains why it worked last time, even if the tech was not 100 percent accurate in knowing exactly what was wrong - he just changed everything. Resolder that vertical output IC and make sure it is getting power. If you still have no picture after that then have a qualified tech look at the set.

hello When the TV has been powered on long enough for the lamp unit to get hot, it may take several minutes for
the picture to appear on-screen. See "IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT HOT LAMP R
When the TV has been powered on long enough for the lamp unit to get hot, it may take several minutes for the picture to appear on-screen
in the following situations:
• When the Quick Restart™ feature is set to OFF and you turn the TV off and then on again within a few minutes.
• If the TV is on when a short-term power failure, power surge, or other similar power failure occurs, such that the TV loses and regains
power within a few minutes.
This is a property of DLP TV lamp technology and is NOT a sign of malfunction.
If this occurs, the green LED on the TV front panel will blink (and the red LED will be lit solid) until the TV is finished restarting the lamp
and the normal picture appears. If BOTH green and red LEDs are blinking at a one-second rate, you will need to turn the TV off and then
on again to restart the lamp.
ESTART" on page 8. if this no good check the lamp in side to see if it's not burn't out good luck

TV doesn't turn on

You really should give make & model number when posting, it helps us immensely, your lamp and possibly the ballast is bad, start with a new lamp first, odds are very good that it will fix your problem, can`t help more without manufacturer and model number, good luck, ps, order the original lamp, generics are junk and a waste of your money.
