Question about Toshiba 62HM95 62" DLP HDTV

Open Question

TV dims and gets bright repeatedly

I have a 62 inch, Toshiba Television. (62HM14) My TV turns on and as it warms up the back light gets bright to normal picture quality, then goes dim but the picture is still there. And it does this every few min. Then it stops for a while then randomly starts repeating the dim to normal light mode. I replaced the lamp around a year ago because it burned out, and it has worked fine until last week. Could it be my lamp going out? There are no indicator lights on my television stating my light is going out. -Thanks Juan

Here is some useful information off of the manufacturer's product information PDF regarding the lamp problems/issues: LED indications: The green and red LED lights on the TV control touchpad (on the lower right corner of the TV screen)indicate the TV?s current status, as follows: ? Green ON = Control touchpad being pressed. ? Red ON = Power ON. ? Green and/or Red blinking 35) Special care for D LPTM (digital light processing) units: ? Lamp?The lamp in this product has a limited service life. The length of service life varies depending on product use or user settings. If you use the lamp beyond its service life: - you may notice a reduction in the colors and/or brightness of the picture, at which time you should replace the lamp unit; and - the strength of the quar tz glass in the lamp will be reduced and the lamp may rupture. If the lamp ruptures, the TV will not operate until the lamp unit is replaced. Here is more info: LED Indication Condition Solution: 1) Green lights solid; Red blinks at 0.5-second intervals. 2) Green blinks at 0.3-second intervals; Red lights solid. 3) Green and Red blink at 1-second intervals. 4) Green is off; Red blinks. 5) Green and Red blink three times. The lamp unit door is not seated properly.The lamp is not working properly. The lamp is not working properly after the eighth automatic restart (see item#2). For service personnel only. An abnormal temperature increase has occurred. Turn the POWER OFF and unplug the power cord. Review ?How to replace the lamp unit? on pages 57?59 to ensure that the lamp unit door is installed securely. If the problem persists, contact a Toshiba Authorized Service Center. The TV automatically will try to restart itself eight times.Turn the POWER OFF and then ON again. If the problem persists, replace the lamp unit (see pages 57?59).

SOURCE: not the lamp!

If the lamp did not cure your problem you have a defective optical block. This includes the ballust for the lamp. On Toshiba sets the the ballust comes with the optical block and connot be purchased seperately. Prices vary acroos the country and from shp to shop but you are likely going to spend about $800 to repair this.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

the ballast should make momentary arcing sound and orange flash in its spark gap tube when it 1st trys to light the lamp. look for it in the darkness it will be easier to spot, as you listen for it. make sure you are buying toshiba factory replacement lamp.

SOURCE: 62 in. DLP Toshiba model # 62HM14

This just happened to me and it was the bulb. A fast easy way to check is to unplug your tv, remove the side door on the left side (left side if you are looking at the screen) and remove the 2 screws holding in the bulb case and remove. If there is glass in there and the wires are just hanging out inside the bulb, its done. Replace bulb and all is good again.

Television Problem

I have just run into the same thing, prior to the picture not coming on there was a loud whining noise, I thought it was the fan in the back, but, what I tried was removing the lower back panel, LIGHTLY tapping the light wheel assembly just left of the Bulb housing, and using a shop vac to first, **** the assembly around the edges and then reversing the air and Blowing it out. After much dust and dirt flying around the TV came on. It now only makes a little noise now and then, but, I will try this again today and then put the back panel back on. Since it would probably cost as much as a new TV for the color wheel, I gave this a try. For now, it is working.

Flickering - Toshiba 62HMX84

it could be as simple as the tv feeding back on itself in a dark room.
it is adjusting the light level because of what it sees ambient in the room.
turn on a light near the tv and see if it stays constant now.
