Toshiba 50h72 picture and sounds takes 20 min to warm up

Hello, I have a Toshiba 50h72 and I have had this problem once before. But I had someone else fix it. When you turn on the the TV, the picture is distorted and no sound.. It used to take about 5-10 min to warm up and become kind of clear.. enough to see. now it takes over 20 minutes and the picture is even more distorted depending on what on the picture frame. I found my tech remarks. They said they replaced hyper module, convergence, test unit. Can you help me? Thank you Angela

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the bToshiba 50h72 picture and sounds takes 20 min to w - 69189a5.pngt fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

Toshiba 50H72 have blue and yellow ghosts


Sounds like your convergence circuit went out. It lines up the red,green and blue picture tubes so the colors are lined up. Usually these TVs all use the same type of IC chips called "STKs" both usually get replaced along with any resistors etc.. around these chips that may have burned up. Depending on who fixes it could be around $300-400 parts and labor.

I have a toshiba model 50h72 double vishion


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Toshiba 50H72 problem plz help!


ok well both of you have had the same problem i did... to fix the picture problem check the circuit board pd0074 its the yellowish looking one next to the green one which has the ic's on them... ok on the pd0074 board look for fuses f470, f850, and the f851 to see if they are blown the f470 is what turns the tv on and the f850 and f851 are what protect the convergence ic's chances are they are blown.... the sound i don't know how to fix that problem but i would check all the fuses on that board to find out if one more is blown that what i did but the only thing is that i could get the actually fuses for the tv i was told by a tv repairman in my town to just take 2 wires sodder them on to the fuse and take a glass fuse and put electrical tape around them and it worked like a charm... so i hope this helps you.... the most i spent was 30 dollars for the ic's and the fuses all together and i was quoted at 450 to do what i did myself

Tv problem


Hi,
I just serviced this model, same problem as noted. I did a resolder job on the power/drive PC board. This was NOT the problem! The problem acts like an electrolytic capacitor issue or horizontal drive amp. Once I get my hands a service manual & schematics, we'll resolve it. I'll post my results AFTER Super Bowl.

The Hyper Module Is Defective / It Is Located Behind The Jack Panel On The Signal Board.
More specifically the 11 16v/10mf caps on that board need to be replaced... Not expensive, I do them for under $100.00 dollars..

Flashing picture when start up


What i would do id purchase a can of freeze from radio shack
wait till the picture is good then freeze one ic at a time till the problem shows up, once it shows up let it warm back up and refreeze to make sure you got the correct part.
found this on anther site:
My first guess is an electrolytic cap in the main power supply and/or a voltage regulator that feeds the deflection amplifiers.

The cost of repair is not much; the greatest challenge is finding the bad cap because there are so many of them and scattered through out the sections.

If you have a scope and can look at some waveforms and voltages around the deflection and power supply feeds you may be able to zero in on it right away

Wavy Screen on Startup


I gather from your post that wavy can mean two possible things as the TV comes on, you see the picture flow like ocean waves? In this case you may have 60Hz hum modulating with the picture, this is actually unlikely these days, but I have heard it happens sometimes. The other thing it could be is light horizontal tearing. This happens when the horizontal frequency is too high or too low. You are not going to like my solution because I feel that for problems like this the set must be analyzed not just subjected to "shotgun troubleshooting", so here I go, Take the TV to a repair shop.
