Question about Toshiba 57H81 57" Rear Projection Television
This set needs a new light engine after 2 years of use. Is this normal and should the repair cost 500. labor pluse pards of 456.00
This is a DLP type TV and if you mean the lamp, that is not a bad price however:
Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy. Some models are real bulb hogs though. Look them up on the net (include the word complaint or repair) before you buy, or you might be sorry. Many class action lawsuits out there - even against some of the name brand makers.
Hope ya fix it!

Bounce horizontally usually means up and down,which relates
to the vertical output IC. Solder IC301, IC401 pin connects==try
again.You can easily isolate "bounce" problems by lightly
tapping on the vertical IC heatsink....Let me know if you need
PS. Though hard to find, a qualified tech could do that repair
in home for 300. to 400.00...
