Question about Toshiba 57H83 TV

1 Answer

We are considering buying this TV from a neighbor for 300.00 but have been told the TV is about 5 years old. Is that when this model came out? What problems do you think we might anticipate with a TV at this age? The bulb going out or the maybe the tuner? Wonder how much these bulbs cost too or even how long they last? They have not have any repairs or problems with the TV at any time. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

This was a good set for it's time. It does have the possibility for the Convergence Circuit to fail, a CRT to fail, and or other Video or Deflection Circuits to fail not because of the quality of the set but because of the age of the set. It is a HD Ready set so you can receive HD via a Cable Box or Satellite Receiver.
The real thing you have to ask yourself is, do you feel lucky spending 300.00 on a older set
that anything could go wrong with it at any time.
Hope this helps,

My neighbor is selling his Suncast DH350 Dog House for a really good price. Is it worth me buying it even though its already 5 years old?

It really depends on the quality of the dog house. If it's been kept in good condition and it can be used safely for your dog, then I say go for it. A new one costs around $80, so the price your neighbor is selling it should be much lower.

Hi..Our Samsung DLP 56 inch has black, purple, and white scambled (digital like) lines going all over the screen. Sound is fine. I have tried unpluggiong the unit for over an hour and still no clear...

When asking for help its usually a good Idea to have a model #, as far as the tv (w/out model #) its most likely the DMD module which is difficult to find, hopefully its only the power supply. best have a shop check it. It will be expensive might consider replacing the tv. sorry for the bad news.

I have an RCA DLP tv model HP50LPW52. the sound was there with no picture. since it is 5 years old I replaced the lamp for the first time. got it all hooked up, turned it on and the tv slowly came on....

That is your Color Wheel that is bad. I wish you would have posted the problem before buying a lamp. I would have told you to treat yourself to a new set instead of putting good money into a DLP set that is 5 years old.

I'm looking to possibly buy a 1991 honda accord but it has 300,00 kiles on it. now i know that is alot for anycar really but what are some of the issues i may run into with an engine with that many miles

1991 20 yrs old with this high mileage so i would suspect that they are paying you to take it away as its had its day and its worn out and only fit for the great motorway in the sky .I know these cars are good and dont give a lot of problems as such but 20 yrs old?? Does it have a full years vehicle inspection certificate from the local inspection station and its passed without a backhander ??

Our screen went black no picture only sound

Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the TV, and replugging it after 4 hours have passed. If this does not bring the picture back, then you should consider buying a new TV. The costs of a repair ( labor and parts) might exceed the cost of a new TV. Your 10 year old TV has served you well, and has exceeded the average life expectancy of 5 years. May it rest in peace in TV heaven.
