Question about Toshiba CF30F40R 30" TV

1 Answer

Toshiba horizontal distortion

TV has horizontal distortion. It is in varying amounts, but can be substantial. It does make a crackling sound when it flashes. It's an interference of some sort that goes across the entire front of the screen. Odd thing, it plays a DVD perfectly. I have eliminated the cable as a possible problem. I have moved another TV to the same outlet, and it played perfectly. Also moved the problem TV to another outlet and it had the interference. It's around 9 years old, so if I need to replace it, that's what I will have to do. Just didn't understand how the DVD plays perfectly if something is going bad in the set. Thanks, Bill Harrington

Re: Toshiba horizontal distortion

Sound like you may have bad connection at or in the tuner section. U could try soldering around the board at the tuner area and if U should deside to try with in the tuner a fine soldering tip is require and solder all the grounds in and out ( out, the main pc board)

Upper 1/4 of picture is distorted by tightly spaced horizontal lines. What do you think is causing this?

This sounds like a vertical fold over.
This happens when the filter capacitors close to the vertical IC have failed or changed value. The are very inexpensive, and relatively easy to replace.
Remove the back panel. Locate the vertical IC. There will be a number of capacitors around it (3-4). I just replace them all. They cost under $1 each, so no testing, just change them.

There are about 10-15 small lines on the top of the screen that go horizontally all the way across. These lines distort the picture up there and it is very distracting...any ideas?

The problem is in the vertical section of the TV. Usually one of the electrolytic caps has gone bad. Easy job if youre experienced with board level component replacement.
A shop should charge under $100 to fix.

TV will not switch on

It sounds like you may be on the right track. Also you could have a problem in your Horizontal Deflection circuit. Since you say it flickered, you may have a solder joint that was arcing. Probably in the horizontal circuit. I found a capacitor which was arcing in this circuit. I was a small disk type. NOW since it is chirping, the horizontal output transistor may have shorted placing too much of a load on your power supply. The noise you hear is the power suppply trying to start. Stargazer
