    Same problem with a Toshiba 52HM95, $750 to replace the light engine. I will just put up with the noise, wait til it fails, then buy a quality product. However, word of mouth is huge, and my words aint complimentary to Toshiba. Anyone buying ANY product from that place needs their head examined.

    My fan makes all kinds of noise also. Can't you just reeplace the fan motor?

    Yeah....same problem here. I have been buying lamps for my 52" every six months and now the TV wont even turn on. Repair guy said it is the light engine. Meanwhile, we went and bought a Samsung LCD so I am not sure I want to spend the $1000 to fix the Toshitba. Especially after we had to buy a new lamp from a local shop for $300 and it turns out the lamp wasn't the problem. Then the **** says the lamp that we bought is non-refundable. So now I have a new TV and an unusable TV with a $300 lamp and $50 charge for the estimate. I wish there was a Toshitba rep that lived near me so I can give him a fat lip.

    Really pissed in Houston

This is the worst investment I have ever mede after replacing the bulb for every six months the color wheel goes out and its 750 to repair
basically after the initial arm and a leg the TV came back for the other ones And the customer service from Toshiba is even wors than the TV I guarantee you will end up cursing at them before you hang up in there face after the smart *** remarks If you buy this TV your as stupid as I was
Toshiba is the worst brand to buy

I also replace the lamp after about a year. A year later a fan was making noise out of the back. Took it to a "authorized" Toshiba Rip-Off repair store and they said it was the light engine. The explained that the light engine and color wheel were all the same unit and could not be replace separately. They want $775 to repair. If you look on parts, the part runs for $456. I am taking out the lamp and going to try and sell it for half of what it cost. and trash the rest. I will not be held hostage and keep pouring money into a sinking ship. What a piece of ****. Toshiba claims that I should have bought the extended warranty. I told them if their product were worth ****, I wouldn't need to. Pissed off in Missouri. If you need an spare lamp, let me know.

I just had mine replaced and it's basically every moving part in the TV. That includes several fans, light engine, lens, etc all in one component. The person who replaced mine got it from a place that has a newly-engineered model that is supposed to last longer. I can tell you that my replacement is not looking as good as the original and I am currently unable to get it to start up any more. Good thing there is a 6 month warranty, but the labor is no refund.

I've had my 52 inch Toshiba HM95 for 4 years and have replaced the lamp 3 looking at a fourth. Can't believe the latest lamp died on Christmas day after giving the kids a bunch of video games. I've already had the color wheel rebuilt (under warranty) which turned it into a paperweight for 3 months while it was being rebuilt, and I still get the lovely loud whine noise. Toshiba is the worst ever. Paid over 2K for this TV and I'd be thrilled to just have someone take it to the dump.

Screen dark,wont stay on. 52hm95

Here's the online manual for your TV:

Read the section about the red/green lights in front. It sounds like the lamp went out. Mine consistently goes out once every year to year and a half. If you plan on keeping the television, purchase two bulbs, so you have one on hand in case your new one goes out.

Good luck.
