Question about Toshiba TP55H60 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Works fine for a while, then the colors get all crazy!

Well, this is really hard for me to explain, so I'll do the best I can! When I turn the t.v. on, it works absolutely fine for a couple of hours and then all of a sudden the picture almost becomes 3-D. The colors seem to get all out whack. What exactly would cause this to happen and would it be expensive to fix? Thank you...

Its the color wheel assy. Its changing speed due to worn bearings. You may also hear a hum coming from the rear of the TV. Seek an RCA authorized service center to resolve this.

HL-P5063W vibrating and won't turn on

i have had this happen to me several times in the field, and if it is what i think it is, you are not going to be happy =(

inside of a DLP type TV, there is a device called a 'color wheel'... it is essentially a disc made up of different colored glass that spins really fast. this disc has 3 or 6 (depending on make/model) pieces of colored glass like pieces of a pie affixed (read: glued) to a hub.

what happens sometimes is that one of the pieces of colored glass flys out of the hub, and causes a massive unbalance in the spinning wheel, which causes the hum/vibration, and since the colored glass is missing, the colors will be all messed up.

if this is what happened, then your television will require a new DLP engine.
