Flickering - Toshiba 62HMX84

Our television at times flickers....every so slightly... The picture never dissapears or becomes unwatchable its just something my wife and I have recently noticed where it almost seems like the picture dims and comes back repeatedly. However when I watch things such as sports games I do not notice the flickering. It was almost as the brighter the picture there was no flickering. Two nights ago I changed the setting on the TV from Low-Bright to Hi-Bright. So far so good no flickering. Anyway is this something I should still get checked out? Also as an FYI I changed the bulb back in July/August of 06 so it "should" still be working fine.

    It ended up being the bulb. It went about a week after I posted this. Thanks for the advice!

It could be as simple as the tv feeding back on itself in a dark room.
it is adjusting the light level because of what it sees ambient in the room.
turn on a light near the tv and see if it stays constant now.

Picture is unwatchable


I have not seen this happen in a long time. Ok first of all that is a sign of poor High voltage regulation, which is not user serviceable. I suggest you find one of the shops on Fixya that can fix this for you, or you can take it to a shop near you.

Picture flickers off then comes back


I have studied the internet with your problem for about 5 hours and find that 75% vote for replacement rather than repair, but it can be fixed for some time and some for quite some time. I am choosing to replace after I find someone who can walk me through the on-screen diagnosis, (just for fun). Jimmy Wayne
