Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

I have a toshiba 57hdx82 got it in 04 replaced the scan converter in 07 and now almost 2011 the set is giving me a convergence error the red and blue crosshairs are fine cant get the green to go straight...


It sounds like it has cost you a fair bit of money over the years. It would be great to get it going again but if you stand back and look at what it may cost, would it not be wiser to put your money into some more modern technology?
Convergeance errors are unlikely to be easy fixes. I expect the power supply is getting noisy and producing distortion on your picture. Replacing the many aged capacitors will possibly repair it.
Hope that helps.

TOSHIBA 57H82 TV Blurry for 15 minutes till warms up


This is a model first sold 2002.

They have a history of the Hyper board failing. Usually noise or lines in the picture and the warmup time gradually gets longer and longer.

This board processes all signal from all inputs inside the set and is no longer available from Toshiba.

The only way to get one is from a national company called PTS Electronics who rebuilds or repairs them--cost for rebuilt board is about 220 plus shipping and part number for this model is:
Part Number23148024


I have a service bulletin with photos of the board on my computer.

It is a financial decision, not a job for the average do it yourself person to attempt.


Let me know if you have questions or need help.

My picture is distorted at the top of the screen .


What you need to do is seek prodessional assistance and it's actually going to be either your bulbs are going out and/or the cpu board in your television is going out and once fixed that will solve your distorted picture issue. It may even be cheaper to buy a new television.

We have a Toshiba HDTV model number 57H82. It is


Sounds like a bad tuner/decoder on the Qam analog side of things. You can bypass this with a Clear qam converter box or a analog to digital tuner box or simply having this repaired upwards of $200 bucks.

57H82 when I first turn on the tv it is all distorted looks kind of smeared and you can not make anything out. after about 15 to 20 min after it warms up you can see the picture but it has vertical wavey...


You can try setting the convergence for your tv which will be explained in the manual (if you don't have it anymore you could try the support page for Toshiba). I had a model like this, and when they get old you can get alot of dust inside which can affect the tv, and just years of use can sort of wear them out. I am a certified installer, and to get mine back to an old tv with a good picture was going to cost me $250 for the parts necessary. An electronic repair bill could be in the hundreds of dollars and you would still have an older tv. If you don't mind the slight inconvenience of waiting for it to warm up or the lines, that option doesn't cost any more money right now.
