White wavey lines with dots or speckles.

At turn-on the screen is blue and good. Apply video and there is white wavey lines with dots. Picture color is fair to good. Checked all the caps on the RF board and Power Supply . They look good, no bulging.

    Sorry, That is not my problem. The wavey lines are over the whole screen and the video that I am using is from a DVD and the lines are also when I am on satellite.

Hi,

To my understanding, a wavy line/component on video indicates possible AC hum in the signal line. On the other hand, dots or speckles would indicate noise/interference injected into the video signal. Course of diagnostic action may then involve:

  • checking/replace video cables/ connectors, plugs. jacks;
  • check/remove electrical noise/intereference sources such as lamps with electronic ballasts, electronic lamp dimmers, wireless phones;
  • check/replace filter capacitors.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    then the problem will be in the video processing circut

    let me do little look and i'll be back with some suggestions for the video processing failures that occur in your piticular set

    but I can tell you that alot of high watt resistors lose value quick , also diskcaps have a tendency to fail lately in alot of video probs and no video , and electrolitic capacitors are drying up and becomming an open on the DMM

  • jason Oct 21, 2008

    ok the only thing I can find on that is some bad discaps and resistors

    but the lines created vari with no exact location as to each symptom
    even though there are both vertical and horizontal lines but said one culprit could be a 120nf discap

    so check that out and make sure all that solder looks good , check for any brown on the board that might indicate a threat , and the problem will be before the blue screen circut so check solder joints at the tuner also

    let me know if you catch a disk cap , it will heat up when failing



    electech

  • jason Oct 21, 2008

    one of those is off frequency sending it into the screen

  • jason Oct 21, 2008

    also possibly the crystal at the EEPROM

  • jason Oct 22, 2008

    thought it was a cap, was it dried up or bulgging?

  • jason Oct 22, 2008

    your going to want to check C280, C302,, C323, and C336 100uf 35v caps also because they are doing the same, I think it's thier manufacturing date, because those all seem to be failing not just in this tv

The "white line" at the top of the screen is usually associated with "VBI Information" - the stuff that carries closed captioning, etc. This is usually only visible on upconverted SD material on HD channels and is usually the fault of the affiliate not doing the upconversion properly.

I have a 2005, 42" toshiba LCD model 42DPC85 that when we turn it on everything is good except the whole screen is black but imediatly the colors dot by dot start making the black disappear, it only took...


You need a new DLP chip. The chip has little mirrors that are black on one side and white on the other side. When the chip wears out , your screen will turn white one dot at a time or black one dot at a time or they may just all stick shut at once. Since your screen is black, all your mirrors are closed. You can buy the chip from shopjimmy.com and they have a video of how to replace the chip so you can do it yourself. It takes about 1 1/2 hours. The chip is about $160. To have this service done for you is about $200. Do it yourself and save the money. Your tv will be just like new again. Just make sure the chip is in perfectly level or when you turn your tv back on, your picture will be slanted. you won't notice it on the picture itself but words on the screen or scrolling messages and the menu will be slanted.

I SEE DOUBLE THE PICTURE AT THE TOP LEFT IS WAVEY


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded over.

I have some distored blue color across the screen


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

Ps3 wont go past searching for network and just show white dots


Sounds like a problem with the network adapter if its not able to detect your network as long as your network is working with your computer.

No picture on 360 with white dotted lines.


Make sure that the video connection is properly connected to the TV.. (yellow to yellow) or if using Red Green Blue, make sure colours are connected to the right ports on back of TV)

Also, if you have the option, make sure either HDTV or Normal TV is selected on the back of the connector to the Xbox (IE, if you do not have an HDTV, select normal cable).

Negative looking white screen picture


this tv has many problems in the scan converter/hyper bd. the wavy picture is very common the problem with the white not so much. However, I have seen them cause many odd looking video distortions and I suspect this is where your problem is. The part is usually kind of high, 250 + Labor i'd guess. If you get it somebody good they can probably repair the bd rather than replace it and save you some money. Either way i'd plan on 300-400

Green dot in middile of my screen


The green dot in the center sounds like a burn mark on one or more of the picture tubes inside the set, and the curved lines are telling me that you have a problem in the convergence circuits. The blue haze around everything white tells me you either have a lot of dust build up on the lens over the CRTs, or your picture tube(s) are very weak. If this set is over about 12 years old, I would replace it. I doubt if you will be able to get the green dot out of the picture without changing the tubes which would be VERY expensive.
