Question about Toshiba 57H83 TV

1 Answer

Picture Problem My neighbor is trying to sell me his tv and I want to know if it is worth fixing. I can get it pretty cheap. The problem is with the picture, it looks very dark and the color just doesn't seem right. I also noticed that the blue convergence is off. They said that it did it about a year ago and they had it fixed under warrenty. Now its doing it again and they want to get rid of it. Is it worth messing with or not? What kind of cost am I looking at? I work in electronics and am capable of doing the work myself. Thank you very much for any help.

Re: Picture Problem

It's very easy to fix convergence manually from the menu, unless it's really really off. there is a button on the front that is an auto focus, that should be used first, then try to manually dial it in. it should be very close after the autofocus (called touchfocus) I got mine for $400 used, and it's great!

RCA27F754T comes on and goes off continuosly when plugged in. Is this a major fix? Is the tv worth the fix?

Don't know,have to troubleshoot by the tv tech. and determine what parts are dead and replacement first and the labors.Call all the tvs shops,discribe the problems and get an written estimates,before give it to them to getting the tv repair,so u the shop u pick to fix ur tv can't do a fake and a switch on u.Charges u higher prices later.Or if u still like the old style standard CRT tv,like to buy a new one.U could also check out, to buy a new standard CRT tvs models.These standard CRT tvs models are pretty cheap these days.

I have a 20yr old cs-3505r picture tube just went out .

If the picture tube is bad (no likely), then the set is not worth repair. If you have no picture, it could be as simple as a bad horizontal Output Transistor or other simple component. In that case it would be relatively cheap to repair. If the picture was good before it stopped, perhaps it is worth the estimate charge at a local shop to find out the problem. Unless it is an obscure failure, the parts to repair it should be available generically and inexpensively. Keep us posted. Dan

We have perfect sound but only a thin horizontal line in the middle of the screen.

this is a capacitor that has gone bad in the vertical delfection stage of the tv. it is an very easy and cheap fix if you know someone who knows how to solder and replace electronic components. If not then you'll just have to get another tv as taking it into a tv repair shop is not worth the cost. You could get another tv for what they will charge you to repair it,

Screan turned a shade of purple

I believe you have lost the green channel leaving only the red and blue. It could be an internal connection like a solder joint or connector, or it could be component failure from the CRT to an adjustment pot. Being the set is ten years old it wouldn't be worth spending a lot of money on it. You can buy a 27 inch TV now for almost what a repair would cost. If the picture was very good before this probem you may try to get it fixed cheap. Otherwise it probably wouldn't be worth it.
My 27 inch TV's (A Sony and a Sharp) are pretty old and I would fix them myself if the picture tube was very good.
This may be a very good time to buy considering the discounts being offered. ;-)).
