There isn't much to clean. 1 lens and that about does it. The mirror won't need it and best left alone so you don't streak it. You'll be amazed at the ease of it all once you open it up... cool.gif

You'll be more amazed at how little is actually in thest type sets.

How about the inside of the screen, does that need any dusting? Like I mentioned, I want to really clean this thing up. Thanks for all the great input.
post #2973 of 3106
Leave the screen alone also. These are not dust magnets like CRT projection sets were/are...

Hello All.

I've tried searching for days so I apologize in advance if I overlooked some information regarding my frustrating issue with my 65HM167. It was given to me with the white/black dots issue so I ordered the new light chip, the day BEFORE the chip came in I get the blinking light issue. Plug the sucker in and the yellow lamp light blinks repeatedly. I know for a fact that the firmware upgrade was done to this unit before because I'm the one that repaired this unit a couple of years ago by doing it, however tried to put the SD card with the files on it again and nothing.

I'm thinking about just returning the chip if this problem goes beyond that but wanted to post my problem on this helpful forum before I made the decision to see if anyone can point me in a different direction.

Thanks for all of the helpful info.

Put a new lamp in...
post #2977 of 3106
Lamp is brand spanking new but I guess its possible that it can be faulty and can get a replacement.. I want to mention that it came on once after trying the firmware update "trick" again tonight but once I turned the tv back off it was back to the old ways. I'll try the lamp however. Thanks

I could not get around or find a descent way to get the download, so I just took a chance and ordered another new bulb. WELLL! It worked. Now at least I get to see the white dots during the show. Hopefully, I can return the bulb that did not work. I will start on the DLP chip before long. Thanks for all your help. Everyone one on here have a Blessed Day.

My lamp went out, actually popped, and I bought one on ebay. After I put it in I was getting the blinking lights and turn off/on reset routine. I ordered another lamp and the set came right on. I don't know what I would have done if I had received a second bad lamp. Probably would have punted, thinking the was a different issue.

It seems my TV is no longer receiving a cable signal. All my other inputs work fine, HDMI, AV, etc. I verified the cable line and digital adapter are operational by plugging them into another TV. Wide Open West is my service provider and they said something is wrong with the TV.

Is it possible for the NTSC/ATSC tuner to go bad and nothing else? Do they sell a replacement tuner module for this TV?

Thanks.
post #2981 of 3106
VERY possible.

Ebay/Craigslist

I have a question. I have the yellow blinking light three times over and over. I have tried several times to do the firmware upgrade but it did not fix it. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if the fans were running when the yellow light was blinking. My fans do not run and the only thing happening is the yellow light blinking. Could it possibly be the lamp. I am out of ideas. I would really appreciate any help.
post #2983 of 3106
Look at your owners manual for the blinking light code(s)...
post #2984 of 3106
It does not list anything for yellow light blinking 3 times over and over. I have seen online where it is for the seine booting. The problem is I have tried to load firmware and nothing happens. I was wondering if someone who has had this condition could tell me if the fans were running when in this codition. Nothing is running on mine except the yellow blinking light.

post #2986 of 3106
Thanks but I know how to GOOGLE search.............. I think I have read and tried about everything. I was just wondering if someone who has had this condition could tell me other than the yellow light blinking if anything else was running or making a noise or anything. Like I said mine only blinks the yellow light. The only thing I haven't done is buy a new bulb. I just hated to spend 70-100 dollars and that not fix it either. That is why I was asking for input from the forum.
post #2987 of 3106
From the few things I read about it, the main board is the culprit. Do a search on ebay for a main board and go from there.

Have you tried here:

I remember on my 57HM66 when the yellow light was blinking, the lamp wouldn't fire...bad ballast was the cause.
post #2989 of 3106
Just now looking at my service manual, 3 blinks is indeed the seine board/booting...

post #2991 of 3106
Thanks for your help. I have been trying to get this TV to work for a couple years. I hate to give up. So if anyone else can comment or help I would appreciate the help.

Greetings All

Who else besides me is determined to keep fixing their set themselves until it becomes truly cost prohibitive.

Bought two 65's in 2007 during clearance for less than $2500 (One for Father-in-law- late fathers day present)

so far 'im in

2011 - $398.00 for two DLP Chips from "shop jimmy"( Mine and Father-in-laws) (Chips now cost approx. $159 now)

2012 - $210.00 for two "PHOENIX" made "OEM" lamps from "Discount Lamps" (Original lamps still hadn't blown -just dimmed a bit)

2013 - 116.00 for a lamp ballast from "TVPARTS4LESS"

Yeah I know thats a lot of cheese, lord knows I ain't rich to afford new TV's this size every for years, soI guess I have caught the toshiba fix it flu.

These TVs where made to be fixed, apparently by techs with minimal training since my senile old a$$ can do it.

All it is really is swapping out bad parts for good anyhow. To quote Dr. McCoy" A child can do it"(From Spock's Brain)

I've found I like tinkering with the guts. well thats my rant for today ,thanks for reading.

WOW!! Mine will be six years old this year and I've never had an issue with it. I've never even replaced the lamp. I really got my moneys worth out of it. Although I plan on swapping it out with my Sammy LED DLP and I need to figure out how to sell the large TV. The cabinet is extremely deep for the 65" screen it has.

Craigslist or Ebay will do the trick when ya ready to sell.

Or post it here. I'm sure one of us toshibites will step up and give

the poor thing a nice home or gut it like a fish for transplantable parts. biggrin.gif

Help!!!
Had the infamous white dots. Got the dlp chip from jimmys, replaced it and got the screen full of green lines. Per comments on forums, I redid the installation and no more lines. However, noe have blurry picture. Didn't think I hit the lens but guess I did.have be trying for 4 hrs to get it in focus by minutely tuning the focus ring around lens but still fuzzy. Nothing was wrong with pic except for the dots before I replaced the chip. HELP!!!!!
post #2997 of 3106
Hope you didn't touch the surface of the DMD install/re-install. eek.gif
post #2998 of 3106
The dmd??? Is that the chip?
post #2999 of 3106
Yes it is.
post #3000 of 3106
Considering I couldn't get the focus any clearer than I had it, and I wasn't sure... Took to all apart again----and I am now getting pretty good at take apart and reassemble by now--took it apart and sure enough. ARRRRRGH. How stupid!!! Cleaned off with cleaner cloth, reassembled, this time getting all the screws started before tightening in case was also an alignment issue. Plugged in turned on and perfect pic..thanks everyone for al the vids and advice..
By the way. The chip and 2day shipping with tax from Jimmy's was 162.50
