Question about Televison & Video
I have a 52 DLP Toshiba TV, for about a week when I turn it on it makes a sound like it's got an open circuit (makes a arching electric sound) Now I pulled out the bulb, looked at it. No wear or tear that I can see on it, bulb is fog free. The only thing is it is 5 years old, and I do watch a lot of video and TV. Could the bulb have some internal circuit burned out or is the whole dang TV just a huge paper weight now?
I would first recommend having a diagnosis done by a Toshiba authorized technician. Bulbs for projection televisions are typically a costly part, so I would not advise replacing it if you are not sure it is needed.
Second, make sure that your product's manual lists the bulb as a user-serviceable part and gives specific instructions for you to change the bulb to make sure you do not do any damage to your unit.
So long as your manual gives you instructions for changing your bulb and the Toshiba authorized technician diagnoses that the bulb is the issue, you should be able to go ahead and change the bulb yourself.
