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!!

I am sorry, but usually when this happens, the "Electricity" "Tracks" through the "Water" and "Shorts" out to "Other" circuits, & components and the like, the errant current, destroys the delicate components, having voltage and current where there should have been none.. Sometimes if it wasn't active at the time of getting wet, and you can get in immediately, sometimes you may be able to rescue it... but otherwise you are just asking for trouble, as even if you do manage to clean it up almost 100% of the time, the circuit traces, tracks, get corroded through, in time. You would be better getting a new one... and learning from the bad experience.

Turn on the tv the green power light comes on but there is no picture whatsoever


Is there a PC mode and hook up on this model? If so try and use the TV as a monitor for your PC. If it has a picture your tuner could be the problem. I had the same cinerio with my new Toshiba 42" Hdtv. Hooked up a DVD player recorder with a tuner and it worked. It had a bad tuner in the TV. You don't mention if there is sound. If you have sound then it maybe the light for the LCD pic.

Sound but no picture


Your player has several outputs and you might want to start with the basic Video Audo Left Right output first.

Set your with your plazma to see if you can change the input types to accept the video and audio input which will probably be labeled AV 1, AV 2 and so on.

My guess is that you have it set for Component Red Blue Green which his a high def (just before HTMI) and requires a separate audio cable. Your player, depending on the age of the unit, probably will not have Red Blue Green picture output.

Next if you have an HTMI output from your player hook that to your Plazma in the HDMI 1 position and select it on the TV's setting. Audio and Video are both carried in the HDMI cable.

Good luck, my name is Eric Kirkhuff
