Question about Toshiba 46H83 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Toshiba 57WT29B Rear Projection.

Cant find one on here but I think other RPs function the same way so her goes. Just got a pre owned Toshiba 57WT29B Rear Projection TV. Worked fine in previous owners home. Worked fine in mine for 24 hours. Now sound intermittently cuts out for about 2 seconds on analogue, digital even DVD. Everything else (picture etc) remains ok but the sound loss is annoying. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks for your input Argent. I suspected something had come loose or failed. However after posting my fault and out of sheer frustration I carried on trawling the net on a wing and a prayer.
    I found a tip recommending I simply manually turn off the set and unplug it for half an hour to reboot or reset itself. I thought nothing lost so did this whilst trawling the net. The set was left turned off and unplugged for about an hour. Touch wood, the set has been fine since switching back on. Thank you!

    What cat can I say providence well and truly tempted. No sooner had I posted its fixed by unplugging the fault is back. Arghhh!

    Get out of bed, switch on TV and seperate UK Sky digital receiver box and the TV appears ok. However switch over to analogue channels or the TVs internal freeview digital channels and the sound repeatedly comes on and goes off completely. Switch back to Sky digital the sound fault remains. I've been through the instruction manual umpteen times and everything appears to be set up correctly. Is it me or the set?

Toshiba theaterwide tv turns on and off on it's own and picture is messed up

I presume you unplugged set for a while and plugged it back to see if problem clears (allows set to reset).

If whatever picture you see looks 3d or colors skewed that is convergence problem.

Toshiba 61 inch rear projection scrambled picture for 10 minutes after power on, then clears up.

If you are seeing lines and or noise for the first several minutes and it goes away--I think I know what the problem is.

Has the period of time before it clears up been getting longer and longer?

Reply to me with the exact model number and I will tell you what is wrong and what has to be done to fix it.

A lot of these sets have problems with what is called a HYPER board----it controls all signal inside the set--confirm Toshiba and exact model number---

I think you answered your own question. You have a rear projection television. It sounds like the lamp is not functioning correctly.
All projection lamps have a recommended life measured in hours. I checked the web and this model appears to be about 3 or 4 years old. from 2005 or so.
The lamp in my Samsung is rated at 3000 to 5000 hours, I had 12,800 when the service Tech was in changing another part.
3 or 4 years running one lamp is a good run. This is why DLP has lost favor for table top sets, Most are LCD or Plasma now.
Check you TV for it's lamp model and them shop around allot. Lamps are not cheap however some suppliers offer much better pricing that others. Care should be taken to make sure you order and purchase real replacement lamp and not a clone / compatible model. Original parts should produce the picture you are expecting
