Question about Toshiba 23HLV87 23 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Toshiba 23hlv87 This is an older TV, but never had very heavy use. We recently took it out of air conditioned storage to set it up again, and the color has gone bad on it. In standard color (after hitting reset) it is very washed out and bright. After radical adjustment to the settings you can get it to be almost watchable, but it's still pretty bad. We were hoping to just set this up in a playroom with google chromecast. Color problems are the same with chromecast or DVD. Any idea what the problem might be?

The TV could have deteriorated while stored.

    Yes- something has probably deteriorated. That's usually the case when something needs to be repaired... but not knowing much about the inner workings of TVs, I was wondering what might have deteriorated, and if the thing that deteriorated could be fixed or replaced.

How do i set up my toshiba 23hlv87 remote control


Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. One among it has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.

Blue blur on part of the screen...toshiba ultra vision


Do you normally leave this set on a specific channel...such as CNBC or BLOOMBERG tv...etc that maintains a regular scrolling image???

If so...on sets that are a few/several years old...the projection tv screens can develop what's called a "burn" or "burned image" on the screen...similar to wearing a path in your carpet from heavy traffic areas. Newer models do not have this issues...but many older ones do.
