Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

Toshiba Model 37HL17 is juat over two years old, shows red/orange color problems where the colors seem to glow or effervese very strongly, along with pixels/squares visible in the colors. Has been getting progressively worse. Present on both HDMI and component inputs (from DVD). Dealer says LCD screen and built in module need replacing. That fix will buy me three TVs!! Help!

    Some web postings I saw mentioned a firmware update and/or a calibration. Any chance of that? FYI, the dealer called this "solarization". Thx

  • millavemike Aug 25, 2010

    The two suggested solutions, first an inverter board, then a display panel, doesnt seem to be a definitive response. Isnt there a single board or module these symptoms suggest is bad, or even firmware as suggested?

  • millavemike Aug 28, 2010

    I havent bought a t-con board yet but I did locate one.i will probably replace it when the picture gets worse. I remember the repair shop saying it could be the tcon board themselves, but oddly could not locate one. So for now this seems like a solution.

    I browsed and chatted, and found that this solution seems to fit best. I will update when I replace the part. Thanks.

How can he say that so confidently? The first thing to try would be the t-con board itself. Its also called LCD driver board and is capable of causing the problem you have described. I suggest you replace it and see if it resolves the issue. Should cost you around 75-100$

    I did some checking and it very well could be the Tcon board Part number is 75009041

    Encompass Parts Distrbution has 1 in stock Price after core refund is $278.41 (1-800-638-3328)

    Go to Ebay Look under Electronics TV Parts type in Part number,sometimes you can find Part alot cheaper then other companys.If the Tcon Board does not correct problem then it will be in the Display panel.

If you connect the monitor to a laptop's "video-out", do you get correct colours, or do you still get the "orange" ??

If so, then the monitor is the problem.

No color when turned on, after a while it color returns.


This is a cold solder joint in the signal section of the set. After it heats up, that problem area conducts better. Have an experienced electronic person reflow some solder on the board.
