How to use the 'Split Cabinet' - Toshiba 57HX94

Help please!

I currently own a Toshiba 57HX94. I really enjoy most aspects of the set, except one, the fact that it weighs 240ish pounds. Currently, the TV resides up a set of stairs. It is now time to leave my current home. I am hoping not to have to try and move the entire set without "splitting" it, as this model has the "split cabinet" feature.

My owners manual, instructs me to contact Toshiba should I need instructions on how to "split the cabinet" (since I never received the original instructions in the box with the new TV on how to preform this function. . .). Toshiba has been contacted via phone, their website consulted and the accessories store consulted. No useful assistance thus far.

What I am hoping to learn is:
1.) Can anyone instruct me in a stepwise fashion how to "split" the set?
-If completed properly, am I harming the set somehow by splitting it?
2.) If not, any further ideas on who to ask to learn how?

I also have read, when the set is "split" it should be moved carefully etc. and should not be transported in two pieces.

SOURCE: Split screen question

Ah split screen just another way of getting two picture in one screen, or sport for he and Opra for her.
Fisrt you must understand what split screen is, it is taking two information from different source and sending the info to the micro to devide the info for two seperat image.
Well something like that but I know you were inpress,
Yes you can. Take the main source you or using I would say the TV box in cable connection or av1 and then your DVD or and VCR to source av2 or 3. When presing split screen or pip you will get one screen showing the main source your tv box and the second your dvd (or VCR) in the source input solector you should be able to change the second amage input with input solector and the tv box change the other.
Oh what a butiful life aint it.
Try this with 7 different source, Cable, satelite, fta, dvd, camera, gaming sytem, and computor,... well that another chapter.

Disassemble Toshiba 51H84 Does anyone know how to do this?? It died and I'm trying to remove it from my basement. Figured if I separate the screen and the cabinet, it will be easier to haul upstairs.

Well if you are not going to get it repaired it really doesn't matter how many pieces you break it down to. I am not being sarcastic. The cost to repair it might not be worth the effort.

Clean lens on Mitsubishi VS 8087?

hello!really, you can't clean lens to improve the picture quality. it just won't make it worth. I've seen lenses and mirror covered with 1/16 inch layer of the dust, smoke, etc. Wiping them off didn't make much difference if your CRTs(picture tubes) are strong. If those are weak or coolant contaminated(cloudy), no cleaning will drastically improve the picture. Except for "basic" cleaning, which requires disassembling of the cabinet, detaching the mirror and spending couple hours to do so, there is not much you can do yourself. Replacing coolant requires 'top gun" skills, restoring CRTs emissions requires $1,000+ device and knowledge "how to" and 'how not to fry" tubes. If picture is not too bad, but out of convergence, there is nothing to do with any procedures, described above. Especially, if coolant leaked onto boards(very common problem). In any case, there is a MAJOR repair involved, possibly at the board replacement level. Not a D.I.Y. project.If nothing relates to your case, just poke set open from the back(carefully) on top of the "bulge". Clean it with "windex" or "invisible glass", using "bounty" paper towels and try to enjoy the show!good luck,Alex.

How do I view movies in 3D on the Mitsubishi WD-Y65?

WD-Y65 is NOT a 3D ready TV. You either have to change the TV to see the movie in 3D, or just watch it in 2D in you current TV.

I have the same TV as yours. Current I connect a desktop PC to the TV via DVI port, and I watch Avatar using colorcode 3D(Amber/Blue) with Stereoscopic Player from It might be a way for you to enjoy 3D without change the whole thing, but it's an entire different topic.

Ticker along bottom of screen for news channels and sports channels is being cutoff along the bottom. That is, the ticker moves right to left and I can read it but the bottom 10-15% of the letters is...


I might need a little more detail to solve this problem - I suspect the problem is an incorrect setting on your cable/satellite receiver (assuming you are using one), but let's start with the TV.

Firstly, switch the TV on and select a channel where you can see the ticker. Then press the "FORMAT" button (above the red REC/CONNECT button) on your Mitsubishi remote control. This will change the screen aspect ratio and the current setting will be displayed on screen. Each time you press the FORMAT button the screen size should change.

The screen aspect ratio settings for your TV are STANDARD, EXPAND, ZOOM, STRETCHED and NARROW. Press the FORMAT button repeatedly until "STANDARD" is displayed on the screen. If the ticker is still cut off, you need to change the aspect ratio setting on your cable/satellite receiver.

Please note: If the TV will only allow you to select STANDARD, this is not a fault. It simply means that the aspect ratio cannot be changed on the TV because it's displaying a picture from an external source, i.e. a cable/satellite receiver.

You should then look for a button on the front of your cable/satellite receiver or the cable/satellite remote control marked "FORMAT" or "ZOOM". When you have located this button, try pressing it repeatedly until the ticker is both fully on the TV screen and the picture covers the entire screen.

If you don't have a FORMAT or ZOOM button for your cable/satellite receiver or you are unable to set the picture size correctly, leave the TV set to STANDARD and then reply to me with the brand and model number of your cable/satellite receiver. I will then be able to assist you with finding the correct picture settings and give instructions on how to set these correctly.

I hope this helps - please post back here if you need further assistance.

No sound,but good pic.everything else works fine.(toshiba 57hx94)


• Check the antenna/cable connections (see Chapter 2).

• The station may have broadcast difficulties. Try another channel.

• The sound may be muted. Press VOLUME.

• If you hear no sound, try setting the MTS feature to STEREO mode (page 81).

• Make sure the SPEAKERS function in the AUDIO SETUP menu is set correctly (page 83).

• If you are not receiving a second audio program from a known SAP source, make sure the MTS feature is

set to SAP mode (page 81).

• If you hear audio that seems "incorrect" for the program you are watching (such as music or a foreign

language), the SAP mode may be on. Set the MTS feature to STEREO mode (page 81).

• When using an external audio amplifier, if you connect the amplifier to the VAR. AUDIO OUT jacks, the
volume of the TV and amplifier must be set above 0 or you will not hear any sound (page 20).

Go into the tv menu and select the Preferences menu and set your picutre preference from Theater to Normal. The TV is currently in Theater mode, wich is for viewing with no lights on in the room. Switching it to normal lightens the pictue a lot.

Yes, the screen can be replaced. The screen is comprised of 3 screens. The Fresnal Screen (inner screen), Lenticular Screen (middle screen), and the Protective Screen (outer screen). Please see below for links to these items.

Need all 3 to complete screen assembly.The only screen that is still available is the innermost screen, which is probably not the 1 you need. You will only be able to find the middle (lenticular) and outer (protective) screens from a distributor that has them in stock as no one will be able to order them from the manufacturer.

  1. Fresnal Screen
  2. Lenticular Screen (no longer available)
  3. Protective Screen (no longer available)

It sounds similar to my Toshiba 62HM195 that I posted about except my screen is spit down the middle and my bottom half is messed up but the upper half is Ok.  I have been told it is a bad Light Engine Part # 23405481.
