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

1 Answer

Need to replace the ballast on a 52HM94

Changing the bulb does not fix my problem with turning on the television. After eight attempts to turn on, the red and green lights flash together and eventually turn solid.

Please provide detailed instructions for changing the ballast. Visual aids would be greatly appreciated.

    I removed the two screws on the plug that the ballast plugs into, but I can't figure out how to get to the ballast. The metal plate holding the plug comes loose, but I can't move it out of the way.

I would assume you need to replace that ballast. Usually the bulbs out live the bulb's ballast (from previous experience)...I've seen DLPS do this type of thing when the bulbs are slow to turn on due to a new ballast being needed.


Thanks and hope it helps!

ballast failures are not that common in general. i would suspect the color wheel before the ballast. do you hear a whirring noise when the tv is trying to turn on. sometimes the color wheel will not spin correctly and the tv will not start as a result.

I HAD THE PROBLEM OF BULB NOT TURNING ON. SOME PEOPLE SUGGESTED TO GET THE BULB CHECKED WHICH WAS ALRIGHT, SOME SUGGESTED TO CHANGE THE BALLAST WHICH WAS SMART BUT THERE WAS NO WAY TO CHECK IT OTHER THAN PUTTING A NEW ONE AND TESTING IT. I CALLED THE TECHNICIAN AND HE CHANGED IT BUT STILL NO PICTURE AND SAME CODE OF BULB NOT WORKING. THEN HE CHECKED FUSE ON POWER SUPPLY RIGHT NEXT TO WIRES BRINGING POWER SUPPLY TO BALLAST BUT IT SEEMED OK. HE DECIDED TO CHANGE IT TO SEE IF THIS FIXES THE PROBLEM AND WE CHANGED IT. WE TURNED ON THE TV AND WALLAH. SUGGESTION IS TO CHECK EVERYTHING BEFORE SPENDING MONEY ON NEW BALLAST OR BULB. 2 CENTS OF ADVICE, IT IS SOMETIMES WORTH TO BRING SOMEBODY WHO KNOWS WHAT HE/SHE IS DOING.

I need to replace the lamp on my hitachi. should i also replace the ballast. thank you


For normal bulb replacement, there should be no need in replacing the ballast. Just be sure to put everything back like it was after changing the bulb. There are interlock switches that must be right for the set to come on. Thanks for using fixya.

Need to replace bulb in lcd panasonic


After lamp replacement, make sure that lamp cover is properly fixed on its location and if TV still does not turn On then it is ballast power supply issue, qualified TV tech will fix it.
If you think you can repair ballast supply and have enough knowledge about TV repair, let me know to provide you technical info about that.

Buzzing sound, resets 8 times, and then turns off. Bulb replaced


Actually ballasts run between 60-80 dlls. It does sound like you doi have a ballast issue, everytime a TV resets the ballast is the issue. Go to discountdashmerchantdotcom you'll see the ballast prices. Plus they also have free troublehsoot.

Not coming on, lights blink, but nothing happens


First thing to check is the bulb. On the back of the set is a hatch with four black screws. There is a TT symbol on that hatch, open it and you'll see the black lamp housing over the ballast circuit board. Remove the silver screw on the left of the housing and pull the aparatus straight out. It may stick a little, don't be afraid to give it a tug or two. Check the bulb, the part of the filament that burns is inside the glass tube that is near the base of the bulb bowl. If it looks broken or burned. Replace the bulb. Ebay sells them for about $100 or less. I've never had a problem with OSRAM vs Phillps, so whichever. Phillips is better but OSRAM does work too.
Sometimes you buy the bulb with the housing sometimes not. Its pretty easy to replace the bulb. You-tube it. Reverse the dismantle and see if it comes on. If not, we move onto the color wheel and ballast. Email me if this doesn't fix your problem and I'll help you move onto the next step. cfoley@hawaii.rr.com
Good luck.

its probably the ballast that is bad, call Optoma and you can buy a ballast for it, but you will probably want to have a pro do it, changing the ballast is a lot more involved than just changing the bulb, the ballast is what powers the bulb and it does go out on occasion.
