Question about Toshiba 62HMX84 62" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Visible bands moving up the TV

My TV is a 52HMX84 which is 52 inches but shares the same features as the 62 in TV. Starting a few months ago, I notice that some visible color bands are moving slowly up the TV at all times. I have tried all types of adjustments in temperature, color, brightness etc., but I can not remove them. This problem is present whether I am using HD cable, playing DVD or playing PS3 games.

Please help!

Re: Visible bands moving up the TV

The bands are caused by unsheilded power cables that are near the
set. sometimes your tv cable or antenae cable is near a power 
source and it is picking up unsheilded EM signals. Remove all
power sources near your tv and tv cable.

Dull almost Foggy picture.

you need to take the screws out from around the screen in the back, on edges, go to the front and take the screws out from the bottom of the screen, should be 4 or 6 in the front, pick up on the screen and lift off, only about 8 pounds, now clean the little mirror in front of the projector, and clean the dust off the projector lence, that will solve it, iv had to do this on about 50 of thease tv's

Samsung plasma TV, half screen is blacked out

Well, as per my last posting, I thought I would share. The problem of the bottom half of my 42 inch Samsung Plasma blacked out - meant a trip to the local TV repair shop. I have to say, they were great. I took it in and they were able to fix it after replacing a part - had my TV back in about a week. Cost was approx. $300. This was well worth it, considering how much I had paid for this TV only a few years ago. I had the repair done last month and so far, it's been great. Sorry, but I can't remember the name of the part.

Dark band on left side, Samsung HL-R5668W

the reflecting mirror is likely loose and falling down inside the light reflecting tube. you should have seen the band getting darker and larger,
the small mirror is in front of the lamp and bends the light,
remove the lamp and look down the tube (light path)
