Question about Toshiba 50H81 50" Rear Projection Television
Picture developed a thin horizontal blue line mid screen to the left as well as a blue double image above and writing visible along the bottom of the screen and the double blue image travels across the bottom of the screen with a wave like movement. Convergence either auto or manual do not correct this what now?
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.
