Question about Toshiba 40H80 40" Rear Projection Television
Understand that I am not in the room with the TV. I can only give you information based on previous experience with this type of set.
I would diagnose this as a bad light engine. This is not a cheap part unfortunately (over $800) and a quick search of the web will turn up a lot of Toshiba DLP owners with the same problem. The light engine can be replaced by you if you are reasonably technically minded.
The only wise option would be to call Toshiba and feel them out. See if they will offer you any help. This model is a couple of years old so I doubt you have a warranty but they may be in a good mood and meet you half way with the repair costs - stranger things have happened to people who kick up enough of a stink.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
