Question about Toshiba TheaterWide 52HM84 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

No picture, hear sound, television will shut off after a few seconds.

Was watching Sun night football, TV had been on for a couple hours. Heard loud pop sound, then all picture went black. Now have 2 flashing lights near power button. TV will turn on, but shut off after a few seconds. Can hear sound, but no picture. TV will keep turning on and off. Have had it a couple years...did I lose the lamp?

Take out the bulb (back left hatch door) look to see if the element inside the bulb is broken or blackened - (replace bulb) if the bulb looks OK then it's the ballast that fires the bulb (service call).

Lamp life is only a few thousand hours. Hopefully its only the lamp that made to noise. Don't turn on again until lamp is replaced.

Loud whinning noise then no picture or sound

Color wheel is the noise you are hearing. It can also keep the lamp from firing up if it has seized up. Remove the lamp and inspect it. Replace the color wheel for sure.
