20 Most Recent Toshiba 46XF550U 46 in. HDTV LCD TV Questions & Answers


I also have this problem on a set that is a year and a half old. The repair man was here yesterday with some parts that didn't fix the problem...he said the screen needs to be replaced! Luckily I bought from Costco, who extends the warranty by a year, so we won't be out any money. They will be getting back to me with what they are going to do...repair or replace...depending upon what is most cost effective for them. I will be trying to purchase extended warranty for this TV, if repaired, or new TV, if replaced. Too many horror stories out there on all brands not to.

If this set has video board it may be the culprit. Some sets video board and control board are combined. So you may have to do some searching on google to find others who have had similar failure and solutions.

You have not mentioned the TV model #.. If your TV does not play avi. files I am sorry to tell you it does not support moving pictures -- it only supports MP3 music files and JPEG picture files !!. Try these two to confirm.

How old is the TV? Does it have a marketplace of apps that came preloaded? Is there a search button in that screen? If so search for the app, you can also search for Amazon prime Video App that comes with Hulu.

The TV's main culprits to be causing this problem are "dynamic contrast" which maybe darkening the backl light in dark scenes an example a night time or a dark scene in a movie. To make the blacks be deeper (as LCD/LED TV are rubbish at blacks) or brighten it on bright scenes to make the light be lighter and once again to make the blacks be deeper so the images pop out. Also "eco lighting" this will dim or brighten the image based on the amount of light in a room in order to be saving energy. Ether way the easy fix is to turn both of these features off. You will get rid of the problem and enjoy more subtler shades of colour that would otherwise be bleached (brightend) or crushed(darkend) out..

The trouble with the video cassette recorder is it is full of rubber components - belts and wheels that don't age well, though it is doubtful that is the only problem.

Capacitors too, often don't age well, especially if the unit could have been subjected to high summer temperatures or freezing winter temperatures but again that probably wouldn't render the machine completely unresponsive.

It should be possible to remove the top cover of a front loader and turn the mechanism by hand to remove the tape but putting it back into working order should be left to a professional. There is often an internal fuse and it could be worth checking that...
