Question about Toshiba TP43H60 43" Television

1 Answer

Excellent picture for a several hours, then gradually dims.

On our Toshiba TP43H60(1999), the pic is fine for 5-7 hours. But soon after, the picture will slightly dim and continue to dim until the screen is nearly black... audio is still there but the on-screen volume control does not show. Once this dimming starts, the red power light also begins blinking. I usually power down the set and let it rest for several hours. It's then good for another 5 hours or so until the dimming process repeats. Any help is appreciated.

    The screen went blank and the red light blinked 8 times before the screen re-appeared in it's weakened state. It may have been 9 times, if I missed the first blink, lol.

    Please advise, thanks.

Picture clarity degrading


Hello there,

If the picture clarity of your television is gradually degrading, it simply means the lamp of your television is gradually coming of age and will soon be in need of replacement. That is how it starts, then the picture gradually fades out and then completely goes blank.

You can get a replacement lamp so when it goes out you will be able to replace it.

Thank you for using fixya.

Picture Jumps/flashes for first 5 minutes


There is a module called a hyper board that is vertically mounted near the jack panel. Inside the module are 10mf/25v capacitors they are grtting weak. The module is fully shielded and pluggs into a socket. the module has 4 tabs (2 on each end) that must be unsoldered before it can be unplugged. This repair should be done by a qualified technician. The caps are surface mounts and very small. Unless you have excellent soldering skills and a rock steady hand DO NOT ATTEMPT to repair this problem on your own.

Picture seems to be alot darker than before. toshiba 62hm95


I just replaced a lamp in a Sony LCD projection that was just over a year old and it was bad. It was a VERY dim picture. You have a DLP but, in either case a dim or dark picture is almost always caused by the lamp.

Wavy picture


this is caused by a bad convergence module, and there are probably some dried out electrolytic caps in the circuit as well. i have one in the shop right now that came in with the same problem. if you have it serviced, make sure they replace all of the convergence modules (there are usually 2, but sometimes 3 of them), because if one went bad the other(s) is likely to go out soon as well.
