Question about Toshiba 52HMX84 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Noisy colorwheel has finally faded to black! Can we replace it ourselves?

Thanks to this forum, we were able to determine the loud hum has been coming from the colorwheel. Already replaced the lamp last year. Called Toshiba and they offered no help. The colorwheel assembly is nearly $600 on-line. Know of any cheaper parts available and can we replace it ourselves if we order one?

You can replace it yourself if you are so inclined. I would suggest talking to the local repair shop. They can get them for a fraction of the cost.

My Samsung TV makes a loud humming sound when I m watching it. It is very annoying. What could the problem be?


Color wheel would be first suspect followed by a fan needing replacement. But if its a real loud humming I would almost bet its the colorwheel.

The colors are faded on the left side of the screen, does that mean I need to replace the bulb?


it just needs a cleaning. blow the dust out of it with canned air. also check the colorwheel for caked-on dust. you can see the colorwheel if you remove the lamp. there will be a small opening with colored class behind it. if it's clear, it's ok. if it's milky, replace the colorwheel. you can try to clean it with a microfiber cloth, but be gentle and don't use solvents. just to be sure, check the lamp for bulges, black spots, and fogging. if it has any one of those, replace the lamp.

Loud speaker hum then blows fuse


Hi there. The final output IC (big and black with 15 pins? attached to heat sink) is shorted and needs to be replaced. If you can still see color bands on R63, it should still be good.
Thanks

Loud noise


It's probably the colorwheel not the fan, can only be fixed by replacement.
