Question about Toshiba 62HMX84 62" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Sound no picture?

I have replaced the lamp unit and the ballast unit and I still have no picture. Tha red light on the front stays on and the green blinks rapidly and it goes into cutting off and on 8 times and after that both red and green lights blink. I don't think the lamp is coming on, I know the fan is cutting off and on. It also makes a nosie when cutting off and on. Help!
I got in the back and looked at the fan, it is running but it seems to surge and makes a nosie when it cuts off and on, is this still the power supply if so where is that?

I have no solution for this problem and I'm not sure I can fix it without taking it to a repair shop. The replies I got yesterday did not help.

How do I fix 62HM15 picture. Have sound-No Picture. Have red light steady and Green light blinks 8 times and cuts off and back on.

Usually 8 flashes means the lamp is not lighting.
When most lamps go bad , they physically crack because of excess heat.
The problem is probably the lamp or the ballast, which makes the voltage to light the lamp.
Replace lamp and remember to close the lamp access door after replacing, because the lamp will not light if the door is open an

Telly on but no sound orpicture

Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast. But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 6000 hrs,2-4 yrs it could be time to replace the lamp.The lamp you need is XL2100 you can find it here .Have a blessed one!

My picture when out and the green light came on the front labled lamp. i replaced the lamp and it is doing the same

Make sure you replace the door to lamp back on the set, as the unit will not work if the door is not reinstalled. This is a safety feature.
Make sure you reinstall it correctly and securely. If this still does not work, then you might consider replacing the ballast also. It is the usually called the lamp driver. Its used to light the lamp. When you cut on the set listen closely near the lamp housing for slight clicking sounds, this is an indication the ballast is trying to iginite the lamp and that its ok..

The problem most likely is with either the lamp ballast or the light engine. The lamp ballast is the part that provides voltage to the lamp unit and is usually not all that expensive a part. The repair cost from a service shop can be about $300 or more. If you are handy, you can replace it yourself. Check out for the ballast.
