Question about Toshiba 46HM95 46" HDTV

1 Answer

I've narrowed the problem down to 2 possibilites...

While my tv was on and actively displaying picture I heard a loud pop. At that instant, the video cut out and remained absent upon restarting. Under normal circumstances, I would have assumed the lamp died considering it was under heavy usage for nearly 2 years, but since it died with a very loud pop, I suspect it could be the light engine.

When I power on the tv I get sound, but no video. The red power light remains lit while a green light flashes 16 times, then the tv automatically cycles the power. This process repeats indefinitely.

Any advice as to what happened (even pure speculation) is very appreciated. Also, I feel confident in disassembling any part of my dlp to check for damage if it'll help isolate the problem. Please help!

    I just removed the lamp and found that the filament has exploded, so I know that the lamp definitely needs to be replaced. Now I'm just wondering if anything else could have been damaged in the "explosion" or if a faulty component could have caused the lamp to blow in the first place.

Heard a pop when I turned on tv and now nothing

don't leave it on and have it looked at---most likely is if it uses a lamp that may be the problem but if not it may be in the power supply.

You will find that the power supply has failed and is no longer supplying the VS voltage that the screen requires to produce a picture.
