Question about Toshiba 50H81 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Bad Picture I just purchased this model (used) and I get a messed up picture unless I go to a split screen. When I'm at the split screen I can push the touch focus on the TV and it will do the focus then revert to full screen and work great......until I change the channel. If I run it through my cable box I can set the TV to channel 3 and change channels through the cable box, but if I turn it off or go to split screen when I come back the picture is all messed up again and I have to do a touch focus again. I checked the convergence and everything is fine there.

    I can see the menu fine. When I change a channel or turn it on the screen comes in fine at first for about a second then it is messed up. What I mean by messed up is that the signal looks almost like a blocked channel that is scrambled. Like when a premium channel is blocked and the signal is scrambled. I have checked all the blocked setting and I unblocked everything I could find.

When you say messed up do you mean the convergence is out? please explain a little more detail as to what you are seeing. Also when its messed up if you press the menu button on the remote does the menu look good?

    This is a common problem on your model it sounds like you have a bad hyper module. This module is not made anymore but there is a company that is able to rebuild it for you. If you call a repair man to come and take it out of your tv and send it off for repair you can expect to pay $500-$700 for the repair. If you are able to solder i can get you in touch with the company and help you furthur. let me know what way you would like to go.

    This company will fix the module but you will have to either be able to un-solder it from the tv or have someone un-solder it from the tv and send it off to them. I have seen trained technicians brake the circuit board getting it out so if you are going to attempt this yourself please let me know so i can help you more



    Thanks

Hi, Please try to push or move the frame of your tv set on the dark side of the picture. If the picture becomes normal it is the loose connection. Otherwise it may be panel failure. Please consult some qualified technician or the service center.

How to split my screen on my 60 inch LG plasma TV? My wife would like to watch a show while I play my PS3 at the same time?


Unless the set has a PIP feature (picture in picture) you cannot do it.

PS3 would be hooked to one input (selected for PIP) and tuner in set for the main picture.

How to setup picture in picture function on my tv. panasonic viera 42-px600u


This is controlled by the Split and Swap buttons on the remote; the size of the second picture can be adjusted with the Aspect button. First press split and use the Input button to select the source of the right picture of the split screen (TV channel or video inputs). Then press Swap and use the input button to select the source of the second screen. Swap again if desired or press Aspect to change the size of the main screen window. However, it is not available if you are using the HDMI, PC and SD Card viewing mode. Since the TV doesn't have dual digital tuners, you can't watch two different digital channels on the split screen.

The manual for the Panasonic TH-42PX600U is available from from Panasonic here: http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Televisions/Plasma-HDTVs/model.TH-42PX600U . See page 18 of the manual, page 10 of the PDF.

I hope this helps.

Have good picture, but big black square in center. Tv is a friends who pushed some button and messed up the picture. He said he was messing with the caption button.


Yes it sound like the caption screen, you may have a c.c or display button on your remote. But you will always find it in the menu, depending on your tv brand it may have different locations but its there.
Hope this will help.
Please do not rate this answer(unless it helps) as it is only a suggestion.
