Question about Toshiba 43H71 43" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Vertical Red/Green lines

After my 43H71 is on for about 30 minutes, red and green lines begin to appear at 1/3 and 2/3 on the screen. At first, it's just a few pixels along these lines. As time goes by, more and more dots appear along these lines until they are almost solid (about after an hour of the TV being on). I've done the touch focus auto convergance, but I don't know what else I can do. I just recently move the TV across the city, and the problem was not present before the move. (We were careful, and didn't hit any big bumps or anything....)

Re: Vertical Red/Green lines

You have bad connections on the board and need to be resoldered or the convergence IC's are bad. If you know how to solder on solid state elctronics then you can change the IC's or find a bad connection on the board if you know the High Voltage issues when working on a TV set. If you have to training on TV sets I highly recommend that you call a service person to assist you in this repair.

Red Green Blue horizontal line at top of screen

Since both were replaced at one time, you now can't limit the problem properly. Should have been done one at a time.

Your vert height may be too short, causing you to be seeing things that should be off screen.

This can be remedied in the service mode.

Convergence not lining up

Sounds like the green is out of focus. If the focus control for the green does not control it enough to make the width the same as the red, then, the lens on top of the green can be adjusted to focus that tube. On the lens, there is a wing nut on a screw to loosen it and move the lens left or right a bit to help with the focus. Hope this helps.
