Question about Toshiba 50A61 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Toshiba 50A61 Horizontal Lines in picture

Ocasionally when watching, horizontal lines appear in the picture. Tapping on the side of the TV makes them go away. Problem is getting worse. The TV is about 5 years old and has been moved several times and sits next to my large subwoofer. Seems like when the subwoofer is on the problem happens more frquesntly. Im thinking something has worked loose but knowing nothing about TVs I dont want to start poking around without any idea what Im looking for. Any help would be appreciated, what to do, what not to do, what to look for, what to test??

    i have exactly the same problem, and even the fix seem to be the same,

    when I tap either side of the tv, altough I don't have nothing but a DVD player in top of it, but I don't think that is the problem, I got my singnal thru

    a smart cable, but I even tried the regular RCA cables (audio y video)

    an still the same problem. at first the problem was light, then worsen real bad, to the point that we had to tap it every 5 mins. or so, but then all of a sudden the problem reduced itself, to dont see anithing wrong for a couple os days and so on..........

    please help out.......the image is incredible, even though is a projection tv.

    I opened the tv, cleaned the lenses, the reflection mirror, and the 3 projction pannels, and the result was an jaw dropping ending ( highly recdomended to do!!!!)

    please e-mail me if you know something.....

There's 4 horizontal white tiny lines appear on screen to make the picture become 4 equal parts from top to bottom with many horizontal lines. My TV is Toshiba Lcd(40RV52U)


You have failure/weakening in the vertical section , the retrace lines appear due to the change in the freq.
Check out small value capacitors in this section. confirm by shorting parallel with the right polarity. Unless you are familiar with electronics please do not attempt unless with help. the fault is not very serious and could be attended with low expense.

I would suggest to locate a part that looks like the one on this link and re solder all the pins, also check for any high power resistor nearby the IC295890 and put some fresh solder.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Rear Projection TV Picture is all green with Horizontal Lines


It looks like you started out with an intermittent solder connection which may have been fairly easy to find early on. Now, unless a technican can make it come and go while tapping on the circuit board and repair the connection, it may be a very expensive shop repair.

Horizontal lines


If this model has a "lint screen" or air filter, I would check to make sure the set is getting proper ventilation. Otherwise, you probably have a bad solder connection or capicators going bad, causing your symptoms. Hopefully you won't have to get a replacement Printed circuit board as they are quite expensive.
