Question about Toshiba 42HM66 42" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Toshiba 42HM66 and it shuts off on its own. Im not sure if its getting hot or if the bulb needs to be replaced. It will just shut off at any moment without the 10 sec countdown that happens when I manually turn it off with the power botton. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Turns on and runs for about an hour then shuts off


How long has it been since you replaced the lamp? Another suggestion would be to take the back off and CAREFULLY vacuum out the dust.

Keeps turning off by itself after about 30 minutes


Is your air intake clean or clogged.. Maybe it's overheating causing it to shut off.. Had the same problem didn't replace the bulb but cleaned the intake and it works great again. Worth a try.. Intake is located on the left back pannel of the tv.. outside pannel pops off easly.

Gets to hot and keeps shutting down


1. Check to make sure the air vents are dust free.
2. Check to make sure the fan is working.
3. If it is dust free and you can feel the fan working, then you may need to reapply new thermal compound between the heatsink and the cpu. This involves removing various components on the computer such as the power switch cover, the keyboard, and possibly the lcd screen.
