Question about Toshiba 55H70 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Accessing sevice menu

I have a Toshiba 48pj5ue rear projection TV with some small convergence issues that can't be adjusted out with the standard user controls. I would like to know how to access the sevice menu to do finer adjustments. I'm sure it's probably similar to most Toshiba rear projectors in it's menu structure so if someone has something similar and knows how to access the service menu, I'd appreciate some help.

How to fix the convergence on a toshiba TP55D81 tv using the remote control

The convergence is adjusted with the remote by entering a tech menu and adjusting there====if convergence is really bad adjustments are not going to fix it.

The set should have in customer menu a limited convergence adjustment with up to nine points where you can adjust---if it will not adjust there in some way----convergence circuit needs repair.

"Perfect Focus" problem on Samsung HCN4727W

You have a bad sensor, a bad digital convergence board, or the new board is not working correctly. I would start by swaping out the convergence board or exchange it for another one. Good Luck

I have a toshiba tv model tp50g90 I have replaced the convergence chips stk392-110 convergence was corrected but I have a problem yet red not managed to focus on the user menu in the option of...

Thats the way it works. You have to adjust the other colors to the red. You adjust the red from the back of the set using the convergence magnets on the tubes. Then you adjust the other colors to match the red. It's much easier if you have the plastic screen from Toshiba used to align this set.

Do lamps have adjustment? I have a yellow and blue rainbow effect along bottom of screen. I am pretty handy and well equipped.

This would be a convergence adjustment. Check your user menu on the tv. Look for an item under video settings for a something called "Converge" or "Convergence". See if you can adjust it enough to fix the problem. If not, you may need to access the service menu and adjust from there.

I just replaced the blue projector. How do I set

Coarse adjustment is done by adjusting the convergence coil on the neck of the tube, also the skew is adjusted there. The user menu should have a convergence adjustment option.

I have a yellow line on the right side of my Toshiba 50 rear projection TV and yellow shadows around people

It sounds like a convergence problem---go into the customer menu and select convergence---set should offer center and multipoint adjustment--in the multipoint look to see if the outer crosses adjust--if red or blue will not adjust somewhere--bad convergence IC's.

You need to take the Toshiba remote that came with the machine and go into a menu area that deals with convergence. Here's what the manual says:

This TV used 3 separate TV tubes, red, green, and blue. The R, G, and B images are pojected onto the screen wheree they converge to form a full-color picture. You can see a clear picture only when the three images converge correctly. Corvergence my drift over time, or if yo move the TV. I you can see clear images on your TV screen skip this procedure.

Make this adjustment only after the TV as been on for at least 30 minutes.

Press the TOUCH FOCUS (auto convergence) button on the front of the TV at the bottom.
The TV will enter into the convergence mode and adjust the converge automatically (that's what it says.)


Press MENU, and the press < or > until the PICTURE menu appears.
Then press UP or DOWN to highlight CONVERGENCE.
Press < or > to display the Center Convergence menu

There's a lot more the book says, but, I can say from experience that you just go through the different sub areas of this menu and converge each color separately, and bingo, it's fixed.

Good luck.

Convergence Issue...Toshiba TheaterVision HD 55H70

You probaly should be able to access the controls for that through the service menue. I dont have that info. However you can get a service manual for 10.99 at the following link, and if you purchase one they will mail it to you, unless you go back to the site and click on the contact them link and request that it be emailed to you. they also offer free support with the purchase of a manual so they can help you diagnose your set. I am one of their techs also. Heres the Link.
