Toshiba 46HM95 White triangle shadow

I have a 46HM95 and it has been a great TV. Just recently I have been noticing a white shadow on the middle bottom of the screen shaped like a triangle. You don't really notice it that much except during certain scenes and if you approach the tv from the side. I recently replaced the lamp, but that did not seem to have any effect. Does anybody have an idea what the cause may be?

    tv turns on and works fine for 15 mins then the picture starts to flash mostly blue and purple if your watching sports you can see the words at the top flash and show up in different spots i just changed the lamp and it half fixed the problem but only if the tv is set to high bright setting on lowpower setting it still does it.

    I also have a 46hm95 and have both the white triangular shadow and the loud buzzing. I had the light engine replaced once, and it is back. As for the buzzing, I am going to try to replace the fan module. Unfortunately, I have called Toshiba and they do not seem to be very concerned with helping me fix this problem. I asked about a "no lemon" policy and they said they do not replace parts or televisions even if it has to be repaired 20 times. This is the last Toshiba product I will buy.

I have the same problem with my television i was told it needs a light engine the cheapest one around is $500.00 and that does not include the cost of repairing it. All I have to say is enought people write into toshiba with this complant if enough people write maybe we can get them to replace it for us.

Turn on TV hear a buzzing and then the TV cycles off and on again


Hi,If it seems you are experimenting a color wheel problem.The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises.I found it with complete light engine assembly here: http://www.discount-merchant.com/TOSHIBA-2973026206-p/1160068.htm?Click=48173

Blue shadows appear to be behind white objects


TV shows large red spot in middle of tv when dark show are on, you can see it more.  Now blue spots on upper right side too.  Spend way to much on this tv to have these kinds of problems only after 3 yrs.

Toshiba 52HMX95 DLP has weird gray think line


DLP TVs work projecting light throught a tube covered with mirrors, called the light tunnel.

The gray shadow it is something in the middle of the light tunnel, probably a mirror that has gone out of place when you moved the TV.

Sony KP-61HS10 Rear projection TV blurry /shadows at first start


Sounds like the convergence ic's need to be replaced or resoldered. Sometimes it can be a microfuse if you are lucky. But my question is if you hit the focus button up front does it make it thru the auto convergence? Let me know. Have a good one.
