Toshiba 50HM66 problem

My Toshiba television is about 1 1/2 years old and lately the hot lamp restart has been occurring after the television is on only 5 minutes. Does this mean that a fan that cools the lamp may have gone out or that the lamp unit itself need replaced?

Re: Toshiba 50HM66 problem

Let us say you cannot wait for the lamp to go down in price $25-$50 a piece.
Put it in your driveway and draw a little circle on the center of the screen. Call some kids stand 20 feet away and exercise with a toy gun of their choosing.
When it 's all done, I mean completely obliterated, gone, gone, gone; then drag it to the curb and let it wait with satisfaction for the garbage truck.
That is what you do with **** like this Toshiba, Sony, Panasonic and others create so you can sleep at night with their hands in your pockets.
I just can't believe than I wasted $2,500 on this thing.
It's unbelievable how people stop thinking nowadays. I just bought my first and last big screen.

Re: Toshiba 50HM66 problem

The lamp may need replacing. I've been finding that with all these DLP TVs the lamps last on average about 2 years tops.

My 50hm66 will turn on,picture comes on for about 10 seconds and then the tv turns off.After it turns off flashing red led on front of tv. What would cause this?thanks jim

I had similar problem with my 50HM66 , except it would stay on for at least a few minutes. I cleaned and vaccuumed (with lamp removed) as best I could, I think it's an over heating issue. My TV is 3 yrs old, have replaced lamp once, it did it with either lamp. When I put a fan to the right of the TV so it's blowing behind it, my TV doesn't shut off. Something to try...

Blown Lamps

Well it seems it could also be an issue with something else and not the lamp. Have you considered that the ballast may be sending irregular voltage to the lamp and that's why it's causing it blow? Because 3 lamps in 2 years is just too much.
