Question about Toshiba 50H72 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

"MY TOSHIBA MODEL:50H60 has the same problem it had 2 years ago..."

I bought this wonderful TV in Costa Rica and now we are back in the states for a while and brought it with us. When it was only 3 years old we would turn it "ON" and the red sensor light on the front would just flash and no pic, no sound would emit. I took it in to a real ass..... and 10 days later he said it was fixed for the tune of $350.00. He said it was the "IFC" sumpin' having to do with the power source. Also, when we had unplugged it and plugged it back in to try to "reset" it, the sensor light wouldn't come on for about 5 seconds then you could hear a "click" sound and then the light would flash red. The remote control wouldn't work to turn it off or on. You had to unplug it to stop the sensor light from flashing, still with no pic or sound. Well, it worked for almost exactly 2 years and NOW the same problem has returned. At one point in time about 1 year after it was initially repaired, it happened and I called the A...hole and he told me to unplug it and let it sit for a couple of days which i did and then i was to plug it back in and THAT worked by using the control. BUT, now it has been dead for a few weeks and after trying to contact Toshiba I have had it with their non-respondance and I care not to use the previous TV techy. I know that I can fix this damn thing...with a little help from you guys!!!! Can you PLEASE help me out BEFORE the "PACKERS" head into the playoffs??? Thank you so much and if you help me I will be at your beckoning call to help you with ANY pet problems, since I am a Veterinarian and I PROMISE you that I will keep my word!!! dr. jimm

Unfortunately lamps go bad without the visible state of being bad. I don't know who or where you bought the lamp from but I order all my lamps through
The clicking sound you hear is the lamp inverter igniteing the lamp but the lamp is bad.

Toshiba Tv - Does it have a digital tuner?

That unit has a NTSC tuner. May be HD Ready but it does not have a digital tuner. Unless you live quiet close to a local Broadcaster, rabbit ears would be useless.
The only way you would be able to get HD is using a HD Set Top Box, HD Satellite System,
or HD Cable BOX, using the Componet or HDMI inputs.
Hope this helps

Mitsubishi vs-70803 Bad picture, please help

The parts you need to fix the TV are 2 integrated circuits with the following number STK392-040 and the locations of the parts is IC8D01 and IC8D02.
You can find the parts you need here or you can also contact this website and ask them for a convergence repair kit for your TV. They will provide you with the ICs and low value resistors just in case they are damaged.
Good Luck.
