Question about Toshiba 57H82 57" Rear Projection Television

3 inch shadow at the top of the screen

I have a Toshiba 56hm66, it is just over a year old. it has what looks like a 3 inch shadow at the top of the screen when in full view. When watching wide screen movies it is fine, but then again the top three inches are not being used. Looks like the light needs to be moved or something? Any Ideas?

The beam from the light engine is out of alignment.

the mechanical adj. is on the mount that supports it.

Thin shade on top of screen on the toshiba

it's a faulty light engine. Toshiba usually does replaces those for free because they sold with a faulty part. Had mine replaced for free last year. Check your serial number on this page:

Shadows on screen

Try moving a medium powered magnet (not one for picking up heavy objects and not a refrigerator holding one) over the distorted area. If that doesn't work, try a more powerful one. This worked for my Toshiba LCD. Good luck!
