Question about Toshiba 56HM195 56" Projection HDTV

4 Answers

FAN NOISE? It seems to be a loud fan noise, but not sure. The sound volume was set on "mute" (no sound) and the noise is still heard. When we "unplug" the TV on and off a couple of times, the buzzing noise disappears. Cannot hear it! Do you think the fan needs to be replaced? If so, is it easy to do?

    When the TV is "off", we don't hear the fan running.

    Unfortunately, no warranty.

    It's 2 1/2 years old.

    We unplug the TV 2-3 times waiting a few minutes each time. It's a pain doing it, but it works.

    It works great all night, with NO fan noise.

    You have a point.

    I am not sure if it is the color wheel or fan noise.

    Unplugging the TV 2-3 times seems to work

  • Steve May 31, 2008

    I am very reluctant to fix the problem myself.

Apparently the ballast fan is a fairly common failure part. You should be able to replace it yourself. It is part number 23587527 at a cost of $36.95 and can be obtained from tritronicsinc.com

Good luck.

If the set is working many years perhaps fan shaft sleeves are worn. In this case i think it is better to replace it instead to attempt fixing it.It can continue operate without problem except the produced noise.

There is a possibility that this noise could be what is called a color wheel. a color wheel is much mor difficutl to replace than a fan does it have a whinning noise when yo9u turn it on

Sounds like the unit is running hot, making the fan run constantly....there is most likely something else involved..you have a warranty on this unit?

    well..it's cooler at night, no doubt, so I'm not surprised it's better then. You do have a potential issue here with some part of your internal workings starting to fail, and running hot, hence the fan issue.

    Do you feel inclined to try to do this one yourself, or are you in the market for a repair person(check the repair listings here at Fixya).

No sound on my 15 inch tv


Check whether the audio is muted by accidental press at remote control button. Enter its sound menu, and check it. If muted, as you know there will be no audio output. If not muted, Check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

None of the codes are working to set up my xfinity remote to adjust the volume. Is there a code that isn't listed?


No as the codes listed are for the settings in the remote if the code listed doesn't control the volume you need to get an updated newer remote with all the newer code sets
As you may find that one code controls the channel and another may control the volume and will be unable to use them at the same time

I have checked cables and different methods of connecting, but the white and red audio out of my PVR appear to have stopped putting out sound.


Go through the setup of the PVR and check the sound settings. It sounds like it's only producing digital audio, that's why it works with HDMI but you want analog, so set the audio to stereo, or try every setting to see what works!

Not enough volume forget about using it in the car---impossible. Can anything be done to improve


I assume you're listening without headphones since I think those would be loud enough. If you don't want to use headphones, purchase a speaker case to connect to the player. It will amplify the sound. We also use it to listen to shows on the computer. This is the one we have http://www.amazon.com/CD-Case-with-Built-in-Speakers/dp/B0009824MK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1256616442&sr=8-2
