Question about Toshiba 56HM66 56" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

56hm66 I have a shaded strip across the top of my screen. I read different solutions to this online and decided to pull the screen off to see if this is something I could fix myself. Well that wasn't going to happen, and when I put the screen back together, the picture is distorted like I warped the screen.

Need lamp ballest for 56hm66 ballast number is D5463M-01


What I do is buy broken TV's on ebay of the model I need (very cheap) and strip for parts.
Sometimes it takes a few weeks before the model I need show up, but it usually does. If it is very urgent you should be ale to order it through any Toshiba Service center.
Hope it helps.

Thin shade on top of screen on the toshiba


it's a faulty light engine. Toshiba usually does replaces those for free because they sold with a faulty part. Had mine replaced for free last year. Check your serial number on this page:

...and if it checks out, give them a call!

Hello
I cannot help you brighten the screen but I have a similar problem with my camera when I tape graduations and ball games. I have come up with a solution for me that can work for you as well. What I did was I made a small shade to put over it that works like an umbrella and makes it easy to read. See below \/

side view
------------------------- ----------------------------
} l l----Radio---------l l
} l l
} Shade ---->l l




If done so that the top and sides cast shade on the radio, you can clearly see the screen even in the sun.





Hope this helps
