Question about Toshiba 57H81 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Horizontal sync When I first turn the TV on it has no horizontal sync. As it warms up the picture becomes clearer. It never really comes in clear and seems to be getting worse. I can adjust convergence but it does not fix it. The HDTV inputs seem fine, no sync problem. Could this be the tuner board ?

Zeutaluras, My guess would be the same as yours because the horizontal osc. is synchronized when you apply the signal to the HD inputs. I am assuming the signal with embedded horizontal sync and composite video passes through the tuner boards as you mentioned. I'll confirm with the schematic once I see it. If it is a separate board can you get one to substitute? I think you may be able to locate the problem with an oscilloscope and schematic if you can access different points in the schematic. I'll try to help once I know more. My problem prevents any type of built in diagnostics since the set doesn't power up.

Picture will not come on but flashes sequence of 6. I can hear it when I turn it on. I've unpluged it trying to reset it but to no avail. What can be the problem and what would the estimate be to fix?

first check is there is any dry soldering on the circuit board. by 6 blinks its means its horizontal side is not working. may be because of problem with the main chroma ic( its a jungle of horizontal, vertical,sync, and colour.). also check the horizontal driver transistor and transformer.

also check one more thing the horizontal power supply voltage. check the protection zenar in its rail.

Picture has a horizontal row

this symptom is caused by a trouble in the integrated circuit of in the vertical oscillator circuit. try to look if your tv has a vertical hold control at the back or inside, if it does not have, u have a problem in the vertical oscillator circuit. by the way, its not the horizontal that u should concentrate into, its the vertical. coz this is a vertical sync problem.
