Hello Mr. Bond.

I believe that you have a rear projection TV where the light from
a powerful halogen light bulb is focused onto a micro-prism
viewing screen through a Liquid Crystal Video Chip.

The light-bulbs have a finite life, degrade with time and eventually
burn out. It is likely that you have a burned out light bulb.

Replacement light bulbs range from about $150 to $250 from
the dealer, depending on the exact model.

The bulbs are somewhat cheaper by mail order from the Internet,
if you can wait that long. Also, some bulbs are available without
the integral mounting bracket, further reducing the cost, but
skilled hands and careful handling is required.

Never touch the glass of a TV light bulb with your bare fingers.
The bulb runs very hot, and residual sweat from your fingers
may cause th bulb to crack and explode.
(use gentle white cloth gloves when handling the new bulb.

I believe that bulb just burned out on its own, and this has
nothing to do with your attempt to connect a DVD player.

On my TV (Sony 60"), a flashing green light indicates a
normal power-up/ bulb warm-up cycle. If the bulb fails to
respond, the TV will detect a bad bulb and shut off again.

Toshiba 52hmx84 door not seated properly


Have a look for a safety switch--usually a lever the door engages when closed--a peg or similar will engage the lever and switch to prevent set from being operated with door removed.

Switch may not be getting engaged--does not take much.

Also examine to see if door is warped from heat even a little bit.

The other thing you can do if find the lever is engage it with something not metal and if no problem with set then door or lever is your problem.

Do not operate with door removed for a long period of time or look directly at the light from the lamp!

You probably need a new projector bulb. Google up your model and buy the best warranteed one you can find. Buy a "caged assembly" and not just a bare bulb.

Then unplug your tv and get a screwdriver. Follow your model's instructions and just snug down the electrical screws. Do not overtighten them.

Then consult your manual on how to reset the lamp timer so it knows you put a new bulb in and fires up from the first try.

Treat yourself because you've just saved yourself a trip from a repairman!!

Hi,
Please few things...
1- Make sure audio and video wires are hooked correctly in AV input of tv and you selected that AV input in tv with its remote.
2- Also check your dvd has not been set on progressive mode if you hook dvd player through yellow-red-white wires with tv.
3- if dvd player is set on progressive mode, then hook it with tv by component video input, red-green-blue for video and red-white for audio.
Hope this info will solve your problem.
Thanks.

Found out from Toshiba that the yellow flashing is the cooling fan has stopped working. Replace that and you should be fine.
