Bright Screen/ Color Flicker. /Burn in?

Hey there. On this toshiba i have a few problems.
in a few spots i have slightly light orange or yellow lines that go across the screen horizontally like so.: IIII IIII 
III
they show up like that exactly in various spots on the screen and can only be seen when lighter colors are displayed. 
The second problem is the brightness of the screen flickers up and down almost like a light bulb does consistently. This tv was purchased in dec 2001. Anyone have any ideas what the problems could be? I have never had to repair this tv but i do use it for gaming about 4-8 hours a day. and have since the time it was purchased. Thanks!

Good Day, radiovisuals;

Corrective Action: Remove the MVUP13 Hyper Module from the TV chassis, remove the top shield and replace the 10uf, 16v capacitors using Part Number 24619040. It’s recommended that all of the capacitors identified be replaced (Note: These capacitors are low impedance surface mounted aluminum electrolytic capacitors. Care should be taken to avoid damaging the PCB while replacing these capacitors.) CAPS: cx178, cx221, cx230, cx241, cx250, cx261, cx270, cx541, cx670 & c514, c5030.
Good Luck, Big Irish.

I have a DLP rear projection TV that suddenly colors and now yellows oranges, greens greys, no longer bright color defiition? what do you think is the problem


It is not likely to be a cleaning issue but could be either a lamp reaching the end of its life (2,000 hrs/2 years) and the worst possible reason would be a problem with the optical light engine this model uses.

Someone would have to try another lamp and take it from there.

I have a sony kf-42sx3oou, i have just had the lamp replaced, since replacing it a few blue spots appeared in the top right corner but today a yellow line has appeared on bottom left hand corner, could you...


This problem was probably there before, but you only noticed with the new "Brighter" bulb.

This TV will require replacement of the LCD Prism unit.

This Prism blocks and allows colors so that the 3 LCD images may be mixed to produce the final image you see on the screen. When this becomes damaged or defective, it leaks colors (light). This Color Leakage apears as spots on the screens.

Where you see the spots is where the specific spot on the prism that is leaking light, the specific color that is leaking also.

This parts cost alone is normally $500 to $1000 dollars but is usually replaced under warranty. If out of warranty, I suggest living with it or selling it if out of warranty. Turn down the Brightness and it will not be as noticeable. I am sure you only see this with bright images.....like white backgrounds and such

Good luck.....

Green tint to bright spots on screen


Try to observe the problem when there is a white screen or predominantly white screen. If the screen is green or yellow where it should be white, its most likely a problem with one or more of the small LCD panels in the TV's light engine.

Its an expensive problem to fix. The light engine most likely will have to be replaced. Check with Panasonic customer relations for possible assistance.

DLP TV starts to loose picture after 1 - 1/2 hours of use


This tv has a 3 board video path. Analog main pcb --->Digital main pcb --->DMD pcb. see which inputs have the problem to narrow it down. if only some inputs, suspect analog board. if everything flickers(all inputs and menu), suspect the dmd or engine. you can see the lamp shine out the back. if the lamp is flickering, suspect lamp or ballast.

Flaw on LCD monitor


This is normal. It may be distracting, but what it is is light. If you notice, it happens when there are bright spots, lights, reflections. These distortions will show up in video so try to avoid aiming at bright things while in video mode. Another type of flicker will happen mostly in florescent light.

Before CCD image sensors, video camera used tubes and aiming them at the sun or bright objects would burn the tubes permanently so cameras have come a long way, but by the nature of cameras being devices that record light, it is hard to eliminate that effect altogether (similar to red eye...just can't be a perfect science due to human nature of having blood vessels in the back of their eyes that when bright light is shined into them, their pupils open and the red color is reflected and shows up as red eye...this is best fixed in a photo editing program. It is hard to totally prevent, but changing angles and not shooting directly head on at subject helps). But I digress...

If it is really distracting for you, here is the one thing I found helpful; recompose the shot slightly by moving yourself, the camera, the angle (doesn't have to be dramatically different, but try to have the sun or light source behind the camera). As you move around, continue to push the shutter halfway down (each time not continuously) to bring subject into focus (getting your green box or boxes that indicate proper focus). Sometimes the lines will disappear if you change your shot even very slightly.

Hope this Helps!

Color "burn" in corner


well i think this is caused by a magnetic field created by your speaker. is the speaker the same location for that color burn (lower left corner)? the only way to get rid of that is to remove your speaker or changed it. for all i know speakers used in tv's are magnetically shielded to prevent distortion in the CRT, because their location is usually near the crt. good luck!
