Question about Toshiba 50HM66 52" Television
The yellow led indicator flashes and the blue light stays lit. After 8 tries a voice say sthe lamp is not working properly. Then the yellow indicator will stay solid and the red indicator will flash. The book says the lamp is not working properly and to call 1-800-631-3811. it's hard to get through. Can you please help?
You need to buy a new lamp. look online-- they are about $200 bucks. it is any easy fix. simply pull out the old one and slide in the new one. the panel is located in the back and middle of the tv and about 4 screws need to be removed.
