I own a 34hfx83 Toshiba HD model , manufactured 2004 . The TV works fine except that when there is a light coloured background in the picture . The screen seems to have what it looks like dirt on the screen . I really notice it alot more when the action moves onscreen .
It just looks like there is dirt on the screen , but I have cleaned the screen and the problem is still there .
I have done a search and I have not found much except for one thread . The thread was from , I believe 2004 . The thread seemed to just end and there was no solution to fix the problem . One person mentioned something about the Invar shadow mask ? , or something like that .
Here is the link , I hope I do this right . I do not use a computer much .http://archive.avsforum.com/avs-vb/s...hreadid=398696
Anybody have any suggestions as to how I can fix this , or do I have to live with it ? .
It is a shame , this TV in high def is great , except that wierd dirty effect .
It would be nice if it was just the glass screen that needs to be cleaned on the inside , but I don't think I would be that lucky . Would it probably be right inside the picture tube itself ? .
Any suggestions out there that could help me ?
Thanks all !!
