Question about Televison & Video

Toshiba 50HM66 DLP. Picture is blurry/slow motion.

Called TV repair shop. Sent someone to look. Told Seine board is bad. Costs $775 to replace. That is more than half of what i paid for the TV 2 years ago. Any other suggestions? Or do I have a $1300 paper weight?

    They said if it didn't work then i wouldn't have to pay for the part. I would still be out the $92 service all. I tried unpluging the set yesterday and lo and behold the picture came back to normal for a few hours then it reverted back.

    Did they give you some sort of guarantee that the part will fix it. If not then what? Do they have a warranty after the repair. 30, 60, 90 days? For this repair they should have some sort of warranty. asnowman

Because of the price of the part it is a legitimate estimate. It is a bummer that prices drop like they do to buy new but as you can tell the manufactures are not too concerned about customers repairing 2-3 yr old TVs.
Sorry about the dad news,

Vertical Lines that occur for the first 5 min the tv is on


sounds like you have sa bad what is called the hypermodule. ideally the best coarse of action would be to replace this. but do to the fact it is a common problem these cuircit boards are hard to come by. Toshibia has told us service centers how to repair these boards which involves replaceing 11 micro caps very very small compnents that usally involve twezzers and magnifier. not for the do it yoursefer. you can easlly damage the board and if that happens that ends the tv right there. at my shope such a repair runs 250 with the parts and labor but it will depend on the shop it is rather labor intensive even to remove the board

Toshiba 50H50: No picture or sound, red light blinks


On alot of these Toshiba TV sets, there is a fuse called F860 that will blow and the light will flash because of bad solder connections on C 810, and C 809, on the negitave terminal. I have seen many of these boards condemed by non-authorized Toshiba repair shops. Good Luck

TV turned itself off, won't turn back on


I had the same issue with my 42HP95 after about two and a half years. Same symptom, red flashing power light, reset doesn't work and most of all, the last day of the Ryder Cup starts in 3 hours. Any other time (with exception of SuperBowl Sunday). I frantically searched the web for like symptoms and came across someone that posted the fix was to bypass the Seine Module but I had no clue what that was! So what do you do? Tear off the back of the TV and look for something that says Seine on it... Right! After that failed and 500 screws later, I decided to look for a Service Manual online. Nothing like RTFM (Google it!). I paid my $11.99 for a download Service-Manual.Net and found what appeared to be the Seine Module (SEIN). Through a little trial and error, here is what I came up with. The pic below shows the location of the said Module in the red rectangle.

78c6772.jpg I ultimately found that if I unplugged the connector from the module (in red circle) and put it in the cable management loop (other red circle), the TV would power on and has been working ever since.

According to the post I read (grains of salt) the SEINE Module is only needed if you are using coaxial type (rabbit ear) antenna. I personally don't know but it works for me. Granted, this is my experience and may not work for you but for $12, I am a happy camper. BTW, what a Ryder Cup!!! USA USA USA!!!
