Question about Toshiba 42H81 42" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Bad picture on Toshiba

I have a 2004 Toshiba 42H81 that plays sound, but the picture is awful. When the power is on the TV but not on the cable box, the screen is slightly blue and has a few vertical white lines that appear and disappear quickly on the right hand side of the screen. When the cable box is turned on, the picture is unrecognizable because of the horizontal lines going through the entire set. The vertical white lines are still there as well. I've searched this site for a problem like mine, but didn't find one. Any solutions are appreciated.

Why no sound On Samsung HLR5087 Projection TV?

Either your tuner is bad, coaxial is not plugged in all the way, or your box is bad.

While watching tv through the cable connection I get just static. but when I swithch to video mode or play a PS3 game, i see the picture just fine. What can I do to fix this.

You may have a bad cable fitting or a bad tuner--you have actually answered your own question:

Way around this issue is to connect a cable box that has the audio/video output jacks on the back to one of the rear AV inputs and BYPASS the tuner completely---watch cable from that input and change channels with the box.

My Toshiba model number 51H83 has picture but no sound. I put a dvd in and the sound worked but when I went back to TV no sound. I dusted the back of my tv yesterday and since then have had no sound. Tv is...

Are you using the rf antenna input for TV or 1 of the VIDEO inputs from a cable box or sat receiver. If the latter check to see if you unplugged the audio fron the box White and red wires from box. If thats ok Plug that dvd player into that input using the cabes from the dvd player .If you now have sound change ables from box. if still no sound cable box bad. If still no sound from that input check for solder connection on input jacks. If antenna input is used replace the tunner intv.

My Toshiba 50 A 50 rear projection has great sound but no picture. Can you help tell me if I need a fuse or bulb?

This TV does not use a bulb. It is a Picture tube type set.
*No picture but there is a dim background. Menu works.
This is caused by a bad signal. Perhaps the video cable is bad if you use a cable box. The HDMI cable may not be working right. Try a new cable.
*No picture, no menu
This could be caused by a failure in the part that draws the picture up and down (The vertical). Can also be the side to side (Horizontal) or a high voltage problem. The last usually kills the sound as well so its not as likely.
If the cable does not fix it, you will likely need a technician.

Toshiba 43AX60: sound but no picture

try switching to a different video source and play a DVD or a game system. If the issue is still there try unplugging the TV for 5 min. and then plug it back in.If the problem works fine on all other devices except the video source that has the issue try hooking up the same device your having the issue with to a video source you know works if that works then you have a bad video source on the back of the TV, if it does not work it's either the cable going to the TV or the device itself.
