Question about Toshiba 50A60 50" Rear Projection Television
Hi, we have a black screen with sound on a 9 year old Toshiba 50a60. What do I look for? Is it just a bulb?
There is no bulb in that model TV. There are 3 crt type tubes. You'll have to have a TV shop determine the cause. It could be many things like no high voltage present, cathode voltage missing. If the tubes are finished, the cost to replace them is quite high. It is a complicated repair since the tubes have to be properly aimed and converged. The repair cost in this worst case scenario would be greater than buying a flat screen TV with the same screen size.

Your best bet, and the cheapist, is to go on craigs list, an look for the same size tv, doesnt matter what brand, get one that doesnt work, probabily can find one free, or verry cheep, then just swop out the screen

Yes I Had The Same problem , if your handy with fixing things this will
Step 1- unplug the TV from wall socket
Step 2- disconnect all devices like VCR's DVD Players from the TV
Step 3- remove the speaker covers from the TV
Step 4 - There are 14 screws on front cover, remove these with a
Philips driver, set cover aside
clean with soft brush and wash with water
Step 5- Gently raise the cover straight up to release it from its supports
Once cleared from supports , remove the cover.
Tips- Make sure you don't scratch any of the screens or CRTs
You can clean the mirror with any glass cleaner, make sure to wipe it
clean , water and vinegar does a good job to eliminate streaks.
Use a soft duster to clean the dust from the circut boards

It's pretty simple repair. Pull bezel, unscrew braces around edges and swap screen out. Where did you find the lenticular at? I have the same TV and can't find the part online.
