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?

Re: Toshiba DLP TV

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.

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

Toshiba 52hm84 DLP-HDMI Component has been compromised?

This is a wild guess, but I believe that you are being **** by the movie industry. The HDMI protocol includes a form of DRM (Digital Rights Management) for high resolution content called: High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection Basically this means that the media (disk or broadcast) instructs the player (in your case the cable box) to insist that any downstream devices (your TV) is industry and DRM compliant. Specifically this evil protection scheme is designed to plug the analog hole and make it impossible for you to record or copy the movie by using an analog output from your TV. This even restricts the size of the TV you can play the movie on, thus preventing pubs and bars from displaying the content on big screen TVs without paying royalties. The message means that the manufacturer of your TV has refused to toe the industry line. 1984 Anyone ? Martin
