Question about Toshiba 62HMX84 62" Rear Projection HDTV
I replaced the light engine and I know I did it correctly.
Unplugged the tv :) I removed the back cover Unscrewed the left panel (power supply and cable inputs) Unscrewed full light engine Slid both units out Unplugged the blue and red cables from the side of the light engine Unplugged the 3M Cable Disconnected the two black cables on the powersupply/main unit Unplugged the 2 yellow wires on top Disconnected the yellow wire on the back of the light engine
Swapped out new light engine and replaced all cables. Turned on the TV and received blinking lights (Slid Green and blinking red - then the green goes out and the red keeps blinking.) No powere to the light engine it seems. There is power to the power supply/main unit. The fan is running. The light engine has nothing.
I replaced the light engine with the old one (the one that was making a whining noise) and the same thing. I checked all the connections and there are all in tight and in tact.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!
I have the 62HM95 and my light engine went out between 2 and 3 years. I will never buy a Toshiba again. I have had nothing but trouble with the components and the customer support. I am in a class action lawsuit with them, but I doubt very much will come of it.
As far as fixing your TV I was in the same delimma as you. I wasn't willing to pay nearly $1000 to get this set repaired when it already cost $3000 and it started having problems within the year and major issues after 2-3 years. I was willing to risk a couple hundred bucks that I could fix it myself. If you aren't very handy with taking things apart and putting them back together, by all means don't do this. It is pretty easy to do and you can figure it out as you go, but I wouldn't suggest you doing this if you weren't willing to take the risk of really messing it up.
I didn't go to Part Store.com because they wanted $456 and then when I finally decided to do it they raised the price to $556...No way, I found http://www.tristatemodule.com/html/light_engines.html and you can get a light engine that is refurbished for $250, or you can have your light engine refurbished for $200, which is what I plan to do if this one fails in the next two years. I looked at their site and it doesn't show that they have any in stock, but they may if you call. I wasn't comfortable sending mine off to be refurbished because I wasn't sure if I would remember how to put it back together, and I'm glad I didn't because the one they sent me didn't work, which sucks, but it happens. I called them back and sent it back to them and it worked fine. All in all, I had no instructions or any other help besides my memory of how I disassembled it and it only took me an hour at the most, not really too hard.
The only other issue I had with them and it really wasn't with them as much as Toshiba is, I received a light engine for a 46" model, which when I talked to Toshiba they swore up and down that it wouldn't work, when I talked to TriState about it they said that Toshiba would say that and they had used it in 1,000's of 62" models and it's worked fine. After they replaced the broken one they sent originally, the new one worked fine and is still working brilliantly and I have my original 62" light engine to get refurbished if anything should happen again. Their shipping time was good and when I returned the product to them, I received a working part pretty quickly.
For $250, this would be the only way I would go. If this hadn't worked, I probably would have just went out and got a different TV. I hope this helps.

Following Jason's directions (jferezy on Nov 09, 2007) and a module purchased at Tri-State, recommended by Michael ( masm on Nov 17, 2008) I successfully replaced my light engine on a 46HM95 -- thanks, guys!!! The only think I'd add, have a level space prepared behind the TV on which to slide out the power supply and engine.

Have there been any updates on a recall if any on the light engine? My TV is making the same buzzing sound. If I turn up the sound I don't hear it, but that doesn't work so good after the kids go to sleep. Help!
