Question about Toshiba 27DF46 27" TV

1 Answer

Brown spot in picture

My 1-year old Toshiba 27DF46 has had a brown spot or brown patch in the upper left corner of the picture for some time. The spot is most noticable against light colored backgrounds. I had called a local repair shop and described the problem to them in the hopes of getting it fixed under the warranty period and I was told there wasn't much they could do to fix it. No lie, that's what they said. Any ideas on what the problem is and how to fix it? Other than the spot, the picture is pretty good. Thanks.

You might have a couple of dry joints, and you might also have a bad PTC inside that degauses the screen when tv starts up. Please try another good tech for a service. Patrick

I Have a Toshiba 27DF46 The Picture is shifted to the right about 3 inches or so. other than that the picture is fine but I can't see the right edge on the picture. Any thoughts


Try going into the picture settings in the options. Many Toshiba TVs have the option to move the picture up, down, left, and right. See if you are able to position the TV to the left more.

Also, see if there is a reset button in the options. A setting may have been switched that caused this.

I would first try a new lamp. If the reflector portion of the lamp has any defects, it could show up this way as the light would not be uniform. The next possibility is a defective light engine. The engine portion if not field repairable and would need to be replaced. Try the lamp first and let us know what happens.

TV shows colored spot at the bottom left corner


The degaussing circuit has failed. Usually this circuit kicks in either when you turn the set on or off. This clears up any magnetic interference on the CRT. Toshiba sets usually have a 3 legged thermistor that controls this. I suspect that this part is defective. The parts cost for this is under $10. Check around for a servicer that can replace it for you.

Light green and pink spots on my hd tv!!!


Hi--Bought my panasonic pt-52lcx65 on sale for $2200 in 8/05. Replaced the lamp for about $300 in 1/08, just prior to Superbowl. Admittedly, this was to be expected after family members watched lots of tv over 30 months. However, two months later the blue spot emerged in 3/08, and red spot emerged 5/08. Set looks decorated by a Andy Warhol or Van Gogh wannabe. I'm looking for a fix it solution. Dr. Bob Heiliger, Lebanon, OH.

Tiny particles of dust on the light engine lens can cause this (and was a service call for me about a month ago), or possibly the expensive light engine.

Blue snowy pixel areas on my plasma


some of these panels were mis-calibrated from the factory after not aging long enough. Let the TV run for atleast 2 hours and adjust the Vs and Vscan voltages. When it is blue in the left I have found generally the Vs is about 10 volts too high.
