Re: toshiba 36zp38b picture problems

With it only being about 3 years old, I would suspect bad solder connections rather than defective components like Capacitors. You may get the symptoms to come and go by slapping the side of the set or jaring it slightly which would prove the bad connection thesis. It is not a permanent cure however and you can make it worse if you keep doing that. A solder repair shouldn't run over $225 in my opinion.

My picture keeps rolling

Vertical sweep problem. Check vertical output section circuits to rectify this fault.

Picture rolls untl il warm


Picture rolling is due the fault in the vertical output section of your TV. To rectify this fault, you have to open your Tv, and locate the vertical output section inside it. It is so easy to locate as, there will be four wires going from the deflection yoke, that is the coil fitted on the neck of the picture tube, out of which, two of them will be thick, usually coloured red and blue, and the other two will be thin. Just follow the two thin wires, which will lead you to a scoket fitted on the circuit board. Upside down the circuit board, and trace the tracks of these wires, and you will reach to the vertical output section.
Normally Toshiba uses a 7 pin IC, number [TDA 8403K], in this section, the number may vary according to sets model, but the function will be the same for all. It will be screwed onto a metal hetsink. I advice you to resolder all the soldering ponts of that IC, by applying a little more solder, without making any solder bridges between the terminals. Normally this may resolve your problem, as there is a chance to get soldering loose in this section.
If this does not help, resolder the IC out, and go for a same type and number, replace it.
If you need anymore assistace feel free to contact me through Fixya. OK.

Picture on tv set rolls

Hi I am Vortash the set vertical sync circuit has a fault on it possibly the frame transistor has gone low or a feed resistor or capacitor has changed value .. if it is the old style Cathode tube set then it is probably the frame capacitors there are two they go leaky and cause this problem .. you did not say a set model so this is about all I can advise yo ,, but sooner or later frame collapse is imminent and you will be left with just a white line across the middle .. the set needs a service engineer to sort this out soon ... Regards Vortash

Yes the dss module is very common to fail.
Unless you have proffesional soldering station & can work on ics whith 200 plus legs do not attempt to repair.
On ocaision if you moan to toshiba they will send A replacement module free of charge. I have had several come to our shop where Tosh has done this the module is just over £100.00 to buy.
All you need do then is pay to have it fitted saving over £100.00

Hope this helps
