Toshiba DLP TV

I have a grayish bar creeping in on the right edge of my dlp television screen When I say creeping, I mean the "grayish ghosting bar" is getting bigger - which is also somewhat transparent. Thoughts?

Light engine issue I would say, is it somewhat transparrent? if totally black might be something else but more than likely will be a light path issue inside the light engine.

I have a grayish spot on the center of my samsung dlp tv. It looks like the screen is dirty, but its behind the screen. What is this? Is the mirror dirty, and if so how do I clean it?


Hi,
If its dirt, soap and water or isopropal alcohol, works fine.
If it doesn't wash away some one has pushed too hard in this area and ruptured the LCD.
Another thought is to watch the spot and start tapping the plastic top of the TV right over
"The Grayish Spot" if you see "The Grayish Spot" start to move down ward it's debris its fixable you just need access to a clean room All of the LCD mfg have a debris problem the best LCD panel is NEC then Toshiba

How do I change it from wide screen to regular? I have a black area above and below the picture.


Hello
You can set the picture size by remote control itself.

You can vide 480i format programmes in three picture sizes. 4:3, 16:9, and ZOOM
You can change the picture size by pressing the PICTURE SIZE button on the remote control.
4:3 Picutre size
To fill the screen, the top and bottom edges are extedted more widely, although the center of the picture remains near the former ratio.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image size is displayed in its originally formatted proportion.
16:9 picure size
This image displays the size of standard 16:9 with black bars at the top and bottom.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image is displayed with black bars at the top and bottom and stretched wider.

NOTE: If a fixed bar remains on the screen for a long period of time, the image can become parmanantly engrained in the screen and cause subtle but permanent ghost images. Never leave your TV for long periods of time while it is displaying these images.

Zoom picture size [for 16:9 formats]
The entire picture is uniformly enlarged --it is stretched the same amount both wider and taller (retains its original proportion). The right and left edges of the picture may be hidden.
OK.

Hitachi 50v500, we just put in a new lamp, now the picture on the screen is slightly doubled, what do I do?


Here is what I suggest----look at lettering and or put the mode to 4X3 which is smaller left and right.

Look at the edges of that picture or lettering on screen---this model sometimes has a ghosting where images have a slight shadow, like with rabbit ears.

If this is the case there is a way with the remote to CORRECT IT.

I have the information--confirm if slight ghosting around letters--it can be white or any color.

I have seen this before.

I just got this hitachi 50v500 from a friend. We had to have a lamp fixed, but now the screen is blurry, like the ghost shadow problem I've been reading about. The repairman who replaced the bulb said...


There is a specific method for ghost adjustment on the 50v500.

Ghosting is most noticeable on lettering or with the set in the 4X3 format the edges will look somewhat double or have a ghost.

If this is what you have: I have the process which is done with the Hitachi remote to correct this. I got this from Hitachi who published a service bulletin on this problem for this model.

Model 50UX58K - picture has distortion & shadow on right side of screen


Hi, if the shadow is colored lines then you probably need the convergence ICs and possible reisitors near them replaced .
If the shadows is just like a ghost of the image or a bar from top to bottom, then check if it does it on every input (dvd for example) , there are blanking bars that you can't see past the edges of the picture and when you have a bad cable signal you can see the ghost of the blanking bar sometimes. if it does it does not show the shadow when watching a DVD then its a signal issue with your cable/satelitte .
If your convergence is the issue, try the adjustments first and if that doesn't correct it, you can replace the ICs using kit # x480293 or stk392-110 (2 ICs) soldered in very technical for even a technician.
repairman cost about $250-$350
hope this helps

Westinghouse LCM-22W2 has "ghosting"


Usually, LCD monitor ghosting appears when the cable isn't tight, the cable is faulty, or low quality. The cable should be less than 8-10 feet long. Try using a different monitor cable (they're mostly interchangable) and see if the problem goes away. I'd put my money on the cable or a loose cable connection.

Liquid under screen on mitsudishi dlp tv


With a conventional projection type screen on CRT type televisions this is not a problem,but with the newer DLP type screens the fiber of the Fresnal screen acts like a spounge and soaks up any liquid introduced.If you try to clean it it will smear and make it worse.You can remove the screen assy an clean it with Windex but allow it to dry properly.I do not see a problem with cleaning this screen,but make sure you put the screens back the way they were.I must also note that it is no easy task removing this particular screen assy.Good luck

I have a ghost of a black bar on the left side of my 61"dlp.


It sounds as though your light chamber is collapsing. This is caused by intense heat from the lamp inside the light engine causing the glue to melt that holds several tiny mirrors in a pyramid shape. This is a very intricate repair but can be performed relatively cheap compared to the replacement cost of entire light engine if you find the right service person. Look for an authorized service center or at least someone who knows what the expression light chamber collapse means. The small group of mirrors is located right behind the color wheel and requires the lamp, ballast, color wheel and housing to be removed in order to be replaced. Caution should be used when replacing this fragile compenent.

Infocus 70+


We have had similar issue w/ multiple LP70+ projectors. The units get to be 1-2 years old and suddenly the right vertical edge of the display is distorted. There is usually a shadowed vertical bar that clouds about 3-5% of the horizontal space from the right edge.
What's the cause?
