Toshiba 52HMX95 DLP has weird gray think line

I have a toshiba 52HMX95 DLP HDTV that i bought about 2.5 years ago. Just recently I noticed that the tv has about a 1 inch think gray line that goes down the middle of the screen. Everything else works perfectly and this line is very hard to see when there is a dark picture, but when the picture is bright you can clearly see it. It almost looks like a shadow of some sort. We just finished moving and I didnt notice it until after we moved, so did something maybe happen during the transport of the tv? Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Thanks so I'm assuming this is something I cannot fix and I need to contact the repair center?

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.

    Yep, unless you did similar repair jobs before, for the integrity of your TV, it is better to call a technician, as you will need to take apart the TV to inspect the light tunnel.

My Toshiba 62HM95 62 in. HDTV DLP TV won't turn on...the green and red lights under the power button remain on and the red light flashes. How do I fix this?


Most likely, you need to replace your DLP bulb. The one that comes with your TV will last a few years max. The replacements seem to only last about a year. D:

maxie99,

Fan is available at https://www.encompassparts.com/webwiz/wwiz.asp?wwizmstr=WEB.SEE&partnumber=6475656&smodel=52HM95 for about $80.00. Replacement should be as simple as unplugging the fan cord and removing a couple screws to remove. Do the work with the unit unplugged from the wall. Reverse the procedure to install the new unit.

Thanks for using FixYa and the great rating.

I have a 65hm117 tv. It has white spots and every day more spots ap[pier. What part do I need to replace.


I have the same problem with my 65HM117. Funny, but it started just when I was getting a FREE repair for a Samsung LCD tv with bad caps on the power supply about the same age as the 117. The problem according to Samsung tech (who was kind enough to look at it while he was here) is the DMD (digital mirror device) chip, the "processing" part of the DLP (Digital light processing). Suggested I call Toshiba. Toshiba rep, obviously not in the USA, told me Toshiba doesn't make DLP's anymore "because of all the problems." They apologized repeatedly, repeatedly pointed out the unit is "out of warranty," but NO help or recal even though they know they built a product with defective, unreliable technologyl. Bottom line, Toshiba lost a customer but SAMSUNG has one for life! I'd repair it, but can't find the part number for the board with the DMD...

No picture, siren type noise as restarting


My Toshiba dlp 62hm116 was used for 3 months then stored for 2 years, I turned it on yesterday and it makes a loud grinding noise which I think is probably from the exhaust fan area and the picture is black except white at both vertical sides. It worked fine the last time I used it 2 years ago. Any ideas?

Have the tuner signal board replaced. HDMI does not use the regular tuner bands, it is bypassed when using hd inputs.

Constant Buzzing sound when TV is on


The wiring may have fallen back onto the fan or that may never have been the problem at all. A common problem for DLP TVs is the color wheel motor. It will hum and change pitch especially as you power the TV on or off. Its an expensive repair in this TV because Toshiba does not sell it independently from the larger, more expensive light engine assembly. Don't allow this to fall out of warranty! Call the extended warranty company and tell them that the repair was not effective and that you want this resolved promptly before the warranty expires.

Flickering and freezing of picture for a split second


The most likely problem for image problems and flickering is the lamp (23311083A). I found it at PartStore.com for about $180. Hope this helps.
