Question about Toshiba 40H80 40" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blown bulb I have a 3 year old 46 in and suddenly it decided to keep switching itself on and off with no picture although sound was maintained. Sent it for repair and told a bulb had imploded inside and that a new one would cost £400 + Vat and then if it was fitted, they couldn't guarantee that it hadn't taken something else out. I am in a dilemma, do I throw about £500 at it and risk it still not working or do I just ditch it and get a new HD LCD. I am recently widowed at a very young age - my kids are driving me cray as they have no tv and have very little money to play with. Sorry it sounds lame, but any knowledgable advice would be appreciated.

I would look at it this way, what other problems does this tv have, the main one that comes to mind is convergence amp ic's which is about 400 dollars USA this is a very common repair with this set.
now would you stick 900 towards this tv thats 4 years old?
if your looking for a new tv google that make and model to see if anyone has problems with that.

Is the tv shot or just a bulb? it went out suddenly


Standard CRT televisions as in your category don't have a 'bulb' they have a CRT, a Cathode Ray Tube. If there was sound and no picture, something was defective in the video part of the circuitry, now no sound, so something else has blown. 2004, 11 years old, old technology, and HEAVY and bulky. Technology has moved on, and you will be surprised how much. We went from 36" CRT to Samsung 50" Smart TV. HUGE difference! Treat yourself :>)

Does the on/off light flash green and red or just green. Is the light to the left of the on/off light on (this means bulb has definately blown)

Probable problem is that your lamp has blown. This can replaced quite easily, but costs about £100. Search google for xl-2400, there is also a video on youtube showing how to replace bulb.
