Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

I bought a Toshiba 42'' plasma TV exactly 1 year ago. The model, as per the hand book, is 42PD6600 A. About 8 weeks ago I began experiencing some problems to turn on the TV, i.e. the red light (stand by) was on but I couldn't turn on the TV by pressing the P /P- keys on the remote or by pressing the buttons on the remove of the TV itself (and replaced the batteries to the remote) Once I 'wiggled' the power cable it eventually turned the green light on and the tv worked. this happened a few times but in the last week it because seriously difficult to 'make the green light' come up and this morning I managed to bring the light on but neither picture no sound comes up. I tried several different scart cables and through different TV scart connections and connected the scarts to several different applications to the tv, i.e. DVD and cable box, but no luck.

Maybe your ac cable has a lost contact thats why when you wiggle it it will turn on. just replace your power cable first before you are going to troubleshoot the other problem.

I bought this tv 6 years ago, it was manufactured in 7/2003. I just started experiencing a double image problem, and the color is a little bit off. Is it worth getting fixed?


It sounds like the fluid in the projectors has possibly degraded. Sometimes there are settings you can use to adjust your T.V. If that doen's work, then it costs about $700 or so to replace the fluid in the projection tubes.

Defective light engine. Contact Sony support. They warrantied a lot of these sets even after the warranty had expired because of so many going bad after 3-4 yrs. Have the complete model and serial number ready when you call them.

My tv has lost its colour, and its green or yellow sometimes.


Okay that means the other GUNS went out when i refer to guns I mean the other blue and red, they need to be replaced pretty costly but if you value that TV I'd do it.

Samsung plasma TV, half screen is blacked out


Well, as per my last posting, I thought I would share. The problem of the bottom half of my 42 inch Samsung Plasma blacked out - meant a trip to the local TV repair shop. I have to say, they were great. I took it in and they were able to fix it after replacing a part - had my TV back in about a week. Cost was approx. $300. This was well worth it, considering how much I had paid for this TV only a few years ago. I had the repair done last month and so far, it's been great. Sorry, but I can't remember the name of the part.

Sony KDF-42WE655 (LCD 42 inch)


I have the exact same problem with my 42" LCD HDTV. When I called Sony "customer support" they told me NOTHING. However, I began researching this issue and found out that Sony knows all about this problem. It's a part called the "Optical Block" and THEY are supposed to reimburse you for the repair! The claim form is on the Sony Website. Here's the link: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=KF42WE610&LOC=3 Look inside the yellow box on the right and click on: Additional service coverage information for your TV (scribble / line pattern on screen) Hope this helps you!!
