I am thinking about buying this tv from this guy, it shows the lines on the tv like in the picture and have been told by many it is a conversion problem, does anyone know a rough estimate of how much it would cost to fix it, I am a college student and me and my roomates want/need a nice tv and we cant spend alot of money, so a cheap fix would be wonderful, someone told me it would be like 140 and then someone else said like 600... so i have no idea what this type of thing would cost. Anyone have an estimate???

Re: lines on tv
All of the convergence IC's should be replaced at the same time! Its not a job for a user to do without the experience. This repair should range in the way of between 250 all the way up to 400 bucks. good Luck

Hi, It's a convergence issue. Go into the main TV menu under video settings and look for convergence. If it has an auto convergence select that and wait a minute the TV will adjust itself and give you a clear picture. If the TV does not have an auto convergence and just regular convergence than select this. It will give you a grid pattern on your TV and you have to move the coursor (using TV remote) and adjust each "point" so that each line is perfectly white. If you notice red or blue anywhere on that "line" then you have to adjust using the up, down, left and right arrow keys to "line up the red and blue lines with the nearest white line. It takes time and patience to do, but when completed, all lines on the grid pattern should be pure white and you will have a great looking picture. You have to do this will all TV inputs (Video1, Video2 and so on) the reason Zoom looks good, is because you never used that screen as much and so the lenses didn't have a chance to get out of syncs. RPTV's are made of the three lenses (red, Blue and Green) and as you watch TV, these lenses slowly get out of alignment. So you should do a convergence about twice a year to make sure nothing is out of whack. Good luck...
That happened to my new plasma TV 30 days after i bought it and the TV repair guy came an fixed it and i saw what he did and he told me that there are 3 circuit boards in back of TV and each one controls their areas, center circuit board was controlling the center screen of my TV which was where the lines were so he replaced it and the lines were gone. this board are usually on the bottom part of the TV and they look alike but they are not due to the connection location., i hoe this help
I wouldn't attempt as the capacitors on a tv store around 25000 volts this is more than enough to kill you and they keep there charge even when the tv is off. Either take it to a repair shop or put that money towards buying a new tv - Do not even attempt to open the tv. (It sounds like maybe a tube has gone or the electromagnet that makes the beam move vertically is gone.
I have the same tv and it did the same thing only now it has red hues all around the picture as well. The service guy told me it was the green tube and it would be about $500.00 to replace and may not fix the problem. What a p.o.s. I will not be guilty of buying any other Sony products from now on.
The pink lines in the set happened when the first time it blew out. It is called a burn in on the inside surface of the picture tubes. Not the fault of the TV repair guy. This is the fault of Toshiba. This set has known to have this happen and you should contact toshiba and request that they replace all three tubes for you at no cost. You should also stop using these repair guys who cannot fix a simple vertical problem. Find out who is authorized for Toshiba in your area and call them. They will know, or should know the problems that happens with this model number and take care of them once and for all. Good Luck
This problem is apparently occurs in 2 cases
1)Exposure of the screen to stron magnetic fields
This can be solved by degaussing(if this feature is there in your tv)Otherwise u can drop into a seervice center and it will be fixed in a jiffy.
2)Due to the presence of a dry solder(Loose contact) If you think you can try opening your tv and attempt to spot it.
Otherwise just drop into the nearest service center..U can locate by clicking on the link below
