Toshibas rear projection model 50WT29B rolling or no picture

Hi William, I've had this great TV for 6 years now and its been excellent. Its just started to have problems with the video input side of the TV and sometimes there will be no picture, sometimes the picture is scrolling from left to right whilst rolling as well. If I let it cool down for 10 mins and switch it on then it works fine for a period of time (Which is random) then something starts to break down again. I've ordered a 60" LG plasma to replace it but if possible I would like to repair it and donate it to my local primary school for their useage. I've contacted you as you look to be the right guy for sorting these out, but maybe a little to far away for a site visit.

    Hi William

    The model number is in the title its a Toshiba 50WT29B. I used to build and sell PC's in the past so I'm aware of PCB's suffering from heat problems with spot soldering cracks. The only problem is where to start lol.

    Just to recap its fine when cold but after a couple of mins starts to fail.

    Thanks for your help and time mate.

From what you're describing it sounds like ring-cracked solder joints or maybe a couple of failed caps. What's the model number???
Ring cracks happen because a component on the board gets hot and cools many thousands of times over the life of the Tv and the extreme heat causes the solder to crystal and break leaving the smallest of rings around where the coponent would otherwise firmly be soldered, breaking contact with the board. The other possibility is one or more electrolytic capacitors measure high equivilent series resistance and take more time (thus heat) to reach an operating temp sufficient to dissipate voltage at a correct rate.
Drop me a post and let me know what the model number is and I can look it up for common problems in the schematics and service manual.

BTW: Uk is a bit beyond my normal servicing route... :)

Scepter flat screen input problem

It sounds that the input signal selection IC is faulty. This IC is at the main board, and will be very difficult to replace to an inexperienced person. Contact any service technician.

Input 6 - HD Input - Green Screen. Audio Only. No picture.

Hi there,
I am having a similar problem with the inputs. I have a cable box plugged in to cable antenna, DVD to video 6 using HDMI, Mac computer plugged in to video 7 - using HDMI (TV does not recognize this) and then Nintendo Wii hooked up to Video 1. My problem is that Sony only realizes 2 additional components like the video 1 (wii) and DVD on video 6, it does not play the other components. I have to niw manually switch the cables to have them work...

I have a Sony Trinaton XBR about 6 years old. Works great. Have Comcast cable and they recently installed a new cable box. Now I get all cable channels on "Video 6 - DVD" rather than "Video 7 -Cable Box"....

I was awaiting your response in chat session but could not get any thing.
Please hook cable box in Video input-7 instead of Video input-6 in TV and select Video input-7 with remote on TV.
Regarding continues on-screen display of video-6, press Display button on TV remote once, on-screen display will disappear.

Vizio P50HDTV DTV does not work any more

Call vizio's customer support line and tell them you got the 'pop of death', They know this tv is a lemon and are standing behind it to make it right. They will take down your info and serial number and set up a repair order FREE OF CHARGE. When I called, they told me that this model was know to have serious defects and was given a lifetime manufacturer warranty to cover all parts and labor! What happens is that they send someone out, he pronounces the TV to be dead and not worth fixing and they give you a brand spankin new one! This way they get a better reputation by 'covering' their duds but reality is that they don't have to keep fixing this tv if they replace it with a model that only has one year MFG warranty. Either way you win. Post back if you get a different result from calling Vizio. I'd like to know how everyone else's experience is turning out.

KV-36XBR450 input selection problem

Go into the menu on the TV and go to the far right under setup. Select "video label" then select "program". A menu will come up listing the 7 inputs. Make sure that the input you are using for your PS3 is not set to "skip". While you're there, set any of the other outputs you're not using to "skip". Your TV/Video button will only cycle through the ones that aren't skipped. Have Fun!
