Toshiba DLP fan noise (52hmx95)
i constantly hear complaints about fan noise in dlptvs
if you sit in front of your computer you will hear the same noise
even in the next room
there is no solution to the fan noise problem
this product has a huge cage fan and a second and third three inch fans in it.... more than the samsung product
it can be noticeable if the tv is on hard surfaces
ie wood floors ,inthe corner, glass top etc
the vents on the back of the tv allow for proper cooling of the lamp at shutoff so it doesnt shatter the tube
its kinda like annealing glass
its designed to extend the life of the lamp ....
which im sure youve priced
call toshiba and tell them your lamp is bad right now and get a new one for an emergency ( warranty if you can do it )
they are also improved
this product is known to have short bulb life
sometimes the zinging noise you hear is indicative of a bad color wheel in the light engine which would require replacement
( not cheap)
toshiba will not piece out the color wheel assembly individually

Toshiba blinking lamp light 16times
follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Rear-Projection TVs have a lamp, which picks up the picture and projects it
on the TV screen. A burned-out or connected lamps are two of the most common
problems for Rear-Projection TVs. First, you will want to confirm the bulb is
still good. If the bulb is bad then then replace it immediately. Second consult
your user manual and verify the lamp and lamp cover are installed properly.
Most Rear-Projection TVs have warning light which notify you when there are
lamp problems. Again consult the user's manual to see what each light means.
Temperature is a common reason why many Rear-projection TVs do not
perform well when they get to hot. You may start to see your TV shutting down
automatically when it overheats. Here are a couple of things you can do to
prevent overheating. First make certain any TV ventilation ports are free and
clear of debris and dust. Second make sure the TV has enough room for
airflow. Third, the temperature in the room should be around 72 degrees. Due to
the high degree of heat generated by a rear-projection TVs, it is not advisable
to watch TV on a hot days when you don't run the air condition. This could
cause damage to your TV.
Reset component settings. Usually, the problems you
encounter with a projection TV may be resolved through the resetting to its
factory settings. If you experience inaccuracies in the color, reset the
television's PerfectTint/PerfectColor capabilities. Simply press the Menu tab
and then highlight "Perfect Color" using your right key arrow. After this,
press "Enter" and then "Reset" in order to reset to factory settings. If you
have audio / video problems (VCR or DVD player), simply press "Menu" and
highlight the "Reset" option.

I cant get it to work on full screen
I am having this same problem as this one above (62HM95). The issue I'm having is that it will also not work full screen. I selected the 'Split' option on the remote and the picture on the left is fine... absolutely clean and perfect, with audio. The picture on the right is completely distorted in very strange colors (mostly constant variations of purple), with audio as well. You should note, that the same video information was feed into different imputes to select for the split. In other words, I feed the cable stream into the TV using the component video (Y B R) as well as the coaxial cable and selected both options for the purposes of displaying the same information side-by-side. On screen I selected video option four (4 for color stream HD) and option (0 for cable/antenna). If I highlight either side and select one of them (4 or 0) the screen goes full screen and I see nothing but one solid color of purple. I've researched the purple and they call it 'Electric Purple'. That is all I see... just the solid purple, with the audio. What I have also noticed is that, If toggle between imputes while in the full screen option and come back to either option (4 or 0) the image plays/appears OK for about 2 seconds then goes back to solid purple. I just can't understand why this is happening especially when the on-screen menu displays perfectly fine. I cannot enjoy this TV by only watching half of it in split mode. Besides the multiple replacement bulbs I've had to buy I've completely had it with this TV

How to program my remote
follow the instructions in the owner manual---the original remote should require no programing for the set itself.
If you suspect the remote is not working, have it tested, all shops have a tester.
If good you may have another problem.
