Question about Toshiba 50HP66 50 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

My Toshiba 50HP66 Plasma TV entire picture dims slightly every 30-50 secs while viewing regular HD cable. A 33" wide shaded area from top to bottom also appears in the center of the screen simultaneously. The picture will then go back to normal brightness/viewing. I have reset back to factory settings, reset my cable box, disconnected /reconnected all cables to and from the TV. The problem persists. It's as if there is a megahertz (mhz) setting issue like on a computer monitor. Any ideas?

Generally this problem is in your signal board. You may also know it as the scaler board, as you mentioned. I have not repaired this particular model. But I would first suspect the the signal board (scaler). If you are not sure what this is, it is the board with all the RCA Jacks and RF connections. The problem in this area are bad or failing capacitors. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Hi, it sounds like the lamp is on its way out. Depending on the size of the television, it may not be cost-effective to try to have it repaired. If it's under warranty, then contact either the manufacturer or the place where you purchased the TV, and find out what your recourse is. If it's out of warranty, however, there is a good chance that fixing it will cost 60% or what it would cost to purchase a new one.

5 year old TV 50HP66. Heard two pop/cracks from the back of the TV. Picture got dim and grainy. Wont go back to a clear crisp picture. Please advise.


Are you comfortable with opening up the TV after it is unlplugged? If not, then I would advise finding a local repair shop. It is likely that a capacitor and/or other parts overheated and blew. Caps are supposed to blow once they become too stressed. However, a bad cap could also be a sign of other problems as well.
