Question about Toshiba 56HM195 56" Projection HDTV
I have a barely used but out of warranty 56HM195. A minute or two after turning the set on, video on the left side of the screen begins to display a block pattern (it looks plaid, if you can imagine that). The dividing line is straight down the middle. After the TV cools down and I power it up again, the picture looks great for a minute or two, so I'm guessing it may be a thermal issue of some sort. It looks as if replacing the light engine is a simple process. However, before going to the expense of getting a new one, is there any troubleshooting to the module I can do? If not, do you know of any good rebuilders? Thanks.
You should make sure that the onscreen menus are effected by the problem if they look OK and just the video bihind them is distorted the problem is in the digital video or what Toshiba calls the seine module. Probably not though it sounds like an engine. PTS electronics rebuilds some engines however most Toshiba engines are relatively reasonable.
