Question about Toshiba 62HMX84 62" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Visible bands moving up the TV

My TV is a 52HMX84 which is 52 inches but shares the same features as the 62 in TV. Starting a few months ago, I notice that some visible color bands are moving slowly up the TV at all times. I have tried all types of adjustments in temperature, color, brightness etc., but I can not remove them. This problem is present whether I am using HD cable, playing DVD or playing PS3 games.

Please help!

    I found the solution myself after posting this for a week. The interference came from the PS3. Disconnect the PS3 and the lines go away. Hook it up and the lines re-appear. It does not matter whether the PS3 is turned on or not.



    Do not understand why. But will call PS3 technical support for help.

The bands are caused by unsheilded power cables that are near the
set. sometimes your tv cable or antenae cable is near a power 
source and it is picking up unsheilded EM signals. Remove all
power sources near your tv and tv cable.

My 62 inch dlp tv came on and was working then with out any noise or notice the picture went to black and a steady red light came on under the word "lamp". We looked at the bulb and it does not look burned...

The tv lamp was replaced when? The tv on about 4 or 5 hours a day right?The lamp was replaced about a year or a year an a half ago?The projection lamp is dead,the life span is over.Must replaced with a new lamp.

Fujitsu 42in Plasma. Model #P42HHA51AS / Serial #300174 DATED : 2006.1.03. PROBLEM: DARKISH HORIZIONAL BAND OF APROX 2.5 INCH MOVES VERTICALLY DOWN THE SCREEN. ONLY NOTICABLE WHEN THERE IS A DARK SCENE....

If you are connected to a cable box, first disconnect that and then watch another source. If the band goes away, the issue is with the cable box or the input line has a bad ground and time to notify the cable company. If it is still there, you might have a bad capacitor on the power supply board inside the TV. I feel however the cable will be the issue...Please take a few minutes to rate my answer...Thanks

Dark band on left side, Samsung HL-R5668W

the reflecting mirror is likely loose and falling down inside the light reflecting tube. you should have seen the band getting darker and larger,
the small mirror is in front of the lamp and bends the light,
remove the lamp and look down the tube (light path)
