Question about Toshiba 65H84 65" Rear Projection HDTV
I recently transported a toshiba 65h84 65 inch projection in the back of a truck. i had the tv wrapped in 2 tarps coushioned by several blankets, coverd with a weather proof sleeping bad, and wrapped several times over in shrink wrap.... upon transporting it, it started to rain. well we arrived at our destinaton and unwrapped the tv. we noticed a little water around the base but not much, however once inside, the screen had signs of water trapped in between the main glare cover, the thin 2nd screen and the 3 screen that look like a big circular lens. but just a few inches tall all the way across, we took all 3 screen off and dried them individualy. we noticed that the inside by the projection lamps was dry and didnt give it a second thought. when we finally powered it up, the screen was barely illuminating and it was ovbiously blue, which later we noticed the red bulb was not working, my queston, would the red bulb provide that much more light to the screen, blue and green work but u can hardly see the menu window come on let alone the picture. Or could we have put the multilayer screen on wrong or damaged it?? hopefully that provides some info enough to go on// thank you for any help...c
The red CRT is most likely not the culprit. If water got on to any of the boards such as the red CRT driver board it could damage it wich also at the same time can load down voltages (200 volts etc) that can have a global affect on the other CRT's. Changing any on the CRT's by the average consumer is NOT recommended because you are dealing with a device that requires 30 KV (thats thirty thousand) volts to make it light up. Take these as warnings and consult with a technician.

The red is a big part of the picture quality and brightness of the tv. However if one is damaged I definately would try changing the bulb and then calibrate the tv with a calibration dvd. Hopefully this helps.
