Question about Toshiba 46H84 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

4 Answers

Smudge marks??? I'm not even sure if this is where I can get help, but I'm going to try. I've had a Toshiba 46H84 for about 2 1/2 years. Just the other day I noticed two smudges on the screen. It looks like someone touched the screen with dirty hands. Anyway, I cleaned the screen over and over again, but it doesn't come off. It almost looks like it's underneath the plastic screen. Does anyone have any idea what this is and how I can clean or fix this? Confused.

    My screen doesn't have grooves though...it's a smooth surface. I'll try the warm water and dish soap. It's really wierd. It looks like someone touched the screen surface, but the marks went into the screen behind the clear plastic.

    I have same problem with Sony Grand Wega 60 inch LCD. Was told "smudges" are from whats called an optics unit within the set. This part costs $1900.00 Can you believe this. I had the tv for just over 3 years and now I need a 1900,00 repair. SONY SUCKS!!!

I have this same problem with my TV and can't figure out how to clean it. Was thinking I might have to call a TV repair man.

If they are grease marks you can use a warm water a soft cloth like a t-shirt and little dish washing liquid. Gentley wipe the area only stroking down or up--- NEVER SIDE TO SIDE---. Have a dry cloth ready if you drip water down the screen. Now if those are scuff marks, your done, they cannot be removed. They are like the old record albums with the grooves, once the grooves get distorted that's it. Good luck.

    Your safety screen does come off the set. It sounds like something got in thru the top molding and went down, does this sound likely?

I have an old toshiba projection tv and i'm trying to program the channels but it won't go past channel 69 how do i get it to go higher. i've tried auto programing and that does'nt work.


In the menu check to make sure set is set to "cable" band and not "air"; 69 is as high as it will go if in air band.

Select CATV and not AIR.

before you rate this information let me know what you find or if you have questions.

Toshiba 46HM95 Screen?


can you feel if the surface is rough has it been cleaned with an abrasive cloth like a scouring cloth used for dishes as this will scratch the surface of the screen try getting a good polish spray on but dont spray to much on and use a soft cloth ideally a proper duster cloth see if they polish out if not the the screen surface has been scratched this can be polished out but you will need to get a pro to do this as doing it your self could ruin the telly permanenty as this is a delicate job to do hopefully you should polish these marks off but if not i would get somebody out to look at the telly to get the scratches polished out of the screen this should not cost to much but will save the frustration of watching a smuged screen the only thing you can do yourself is try polishing the screen properly in case she cleaned it and the cleaning product is still on screen if not you will need to get the screen profesionally polished goto a tv repair shop and these should tell you who to call hope this is some help to you but their isnt much you can do yourself

You've got to replace the bulb. I've had my KF-50WE610 for four years. Mine just went out again too. This is the third bulb in four years. The bulbs are expensive too - $100 -$200 each

Yellow smudge on screen sony wega


Its another instance of the optical block (light engine) failure these TVs are known for. Heat from the lamp has damaged the LCD panels in the light engine. Sony has been directed by the attorney general's office in New York to warranty these TVs going back 4 model years. Call Sony at: 1-800-222-SONY for assistance.

Convergence Issue on Toshiba TN50X81 - Service Manual & Parts Source?


Replace the convergence IC's - P/N STK192-110 with part STK192-150 or 180. Then you can go back in and make the detailed convergence settings and get your picture back in alignement. Also check the flame-resistant resistors around the ICs to make sure that none of them have opened up.

57h94


Not much help here. The Toshiba 57H94 is CRT based unit and does NOT have a lamp to burn out. CRTs rarely "burn out" - especially all three tubes at once. Not sure if there is a user-serviceable component, such as a fuse, that would correct this problem. Proceed with caution if you feel compelled to go inside the set. Very high voltages are present, even if the TV is unplugged. Unfortunately this sound like a service call issue.

Mitsubishi tv model wt 46809


Good Day, sam;
Sam it depends on "smudge".
If it's an oily type; then a mild soap, like dawn, on damp, warm soft cotton type cloth may remove it.
There are products found in most large best buy, circuit stores that sell a screen cleaner. It's sold in a small spay bottle, about 2-3 ounces. Always spray onto cloth NOT screen. Always wipe/clean with up & down strokes, NOT side to side or at an angle.
If the screen is smudged after attempts of trying to 'cleanning' a scratch, then only replacing the screen will fixya problem, cost will be in the range of $100.00-$250.00.
Good Luck, hope this was helpful, big IRISH.
