Question about Toshiba 57H83 TV

1 Answer

Picture turns to lines

When the tv is first turned on the picture is fine. After a while the picture turns to different colored lines..the first couple times that it does it slightly tapping the side of the television will fix it however you can only do this a couple times and it won't work any more and you have to power it off for about an hour and turn it on again.

Re: Picture turns to lines

Sounds like an intermittant connection on the convergence IC'S or the vertical sweep curcuit. I would advise that you seek to have this fixed as soon as possible as tapping on the side can and will cause other problems in the set.. I would also advise that if your not an experienced tech take the set in to a repair shop. Good Luck

Picture color is distorted.

Try turning off power and let set cool completely. Then turn back on. Letting it cool complety re-arms the autmatic degaussing circuit. It may take several cycles to completly clear it up.

Green screen with almost horizontal zigzag lines

Is good that you hit it and it reacts,very likely you have loose conections in different places but for the distorted picture you need to check the horizontal driver transformer and flyback after that is corrected you need to check the complete chassis for loose conections.Take your time.Good luck.
