Question about Toshiba 40H80 40" Rear Projection Television
The oil that you saw is really water with some additives. It is used to cool the CRTs. They are run very hard to produce enough light to make a good picture and without the coolant the tubes would be destroyed. The bad news here is that unless the leak is found and fixed and the coolant replaced the unit will fail.
First of all turn the set off and do not use it. If you have no skills that would allow you to find the leak and fix it and replace the coolant call a reputable electronic shop and have a technician come and fix the unit.
The best fix would be to replace the tube. Fixing it is really not an option. If you replace it and the set is older there may be a problem balancing the tubes but a technician should be able to tell you what your options are.
Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.
