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

1 Answer

Green Solid Hour Glass

When I shut the TV off, I heard a loud Pop. When I turned it back on, the screen is almost solid green hour glass shaped. The images are barely visible all green. Is this a major repair costing more than $300-$500 dollars? I really enjoy the TV since I mostly watch HDTV.

The picture on my Sony is shaped like an hour glass


There is an apparatus on the back of your picture tube called a yoke.This distributes your picture on your pic tube uniformly.If this or the circuits enabling it malfunction,then you will get distortion-namely an hour glass shape.Tv has to be trouble shooted.

My printer keeps trying to start a scan at start up. The power on green light never becomes a solid green and the hour glass icon is what is on the screen. Makes awful grinding noise. Try reconnecting and...


If it's the scanner bar "clicking" after start-up thats the problem then see ;

Concensus seems to be that the scanner is trying to find "home" and it can't see it because something is in the way. Combination of cleaning the glass and/or the lighting unit/mirrors may help. Worked for me.

Tv plays sound but no picture or any signs of backlight


This sound is a capcitor pop and this could be in the power supply unit itself. The glass could be a fuse that took the brunt from the capcitor pop.

1. Unplug the unit and do not plug it in.
2. if its under warrenty take it in please!
3. if its not under warrenty and you know eletronics verify what cap popped and replace that and the fuse.
4. if you do not know about eletronics this work would cost you around $150 for the wrok done.

Good luck I hope this information helps you!!

Hourglass Shape


If there is a hour glass shape to the image but convergence is normal, there are 2 possibilities. You either have a pincushion correction problem or if the hour glass seems to be moving, it will be an open filter capacitor in the power supply.

Unless you are electronically inclined troubleshooting this issue will require a factory trained service technician. You can expect to spend $300-$400 to fix this.

Read replace lamp then afew weeks later heard pop noise and now black screen


Two things in your TV can make that popping sound. One is the bulb of course and the other is a capacitor. Have you pulled out the bulb to inspect it? My guess is that you have broken glass in the cooling fan, which is why there is a grinding sound. Most bulbs tend to contain the glass from getting everywhere as it's only the filament inside that pops creating little diamond looking pieces inside the lens. If a surge was strong enough or if the bulb was poorly manufactured, the whole unit can explode inside spraying glass everywhere.

If the bulb looks fine, the pop must've been a capacitor on one of your circuit boards resulting in no display. Since the TV still powers on, your power supply and it's fuse appear to be fine. Check the bulb first and go from there.

Tv picture shaped like hour glass


The link you posted has been deleted, so I cannot see the picture you posted. If the sides bow in like an hourglass and the red, green and blue colors are still aligned then there is a horizontal width or pincussion problem, but if the sides bow in and the 3 colors have separated and are no longer anywhere near aligned then you have a convergence problem, both of which should be serviced by someone with experience in servicing projection TV's.
