Question about Toshiba 53HX71 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Color 'bleeds' or smears when watching HD channels on Toshiba 53HX71

When watching HD stations I see very obvious 'bleeding' of the color blue. The blue color will bleed or smear from left to right across the screen and overpowers other colors, giving the images (which are still clear) a blue overtone. Only the color blue is exhibiting this and depending on the intensity of the blue is more noticeable. The problem is noticeable but only barely when watching standard TV stations as well. I've adjusted the convergence and nothing changes.

Convergence issue Blue not convering correctly, but the other colors do. The blue is warped at the top and bottom of the screen. Is this problem something that can be fixed?

Yes,the covergence ICs and precision resistors can be replaced to rebuild the area. A reputable shop may charge around $300 . If you are technical person,I can guide you further to do yourself!

The color is distorted and the picture blinks. I've replaced the lamp twice before and i don't think this is a lamp problem.

color distortion (bleeding colors, or overwhelming of one color)on these tv's is commonly the optical engine. that might make it unecinomical to repair

I have color bleeding or washout in solid colors? does that mean the lamp is going bad?

I am not sure which set you have, but, when colors are bleeding on a projection set that is a good indication that the tube is going bad. The color that is dominate, red, green or blue, this will tend to bleed across the screen. If I had more information on your set I could give you a better suggestion, but if it is a tube it will be a costly repair.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

Most of the time the Hyper Board failing is the cause of this problem. It will eventually get worse where it also affects the HD ins. Unfortunately the Hyper Boards are no longer available from Toshiba and have not been available for quite some time. My suggestion is to coast with it and replace the Set when the HD ins fail.

Colors no aligned

Hi Chin,
Please check faded color resistors (in big size) on D board and also check dry solder joints on D board.
If above seems OK then ICs STK-392-560 are suspected and needs to be replaced.
Let me know if you need further info.

Your set has a defective color wheel. This is the noise you hear and why the set wont even come on now. The colors were bleeding because the color wheel was getting stuck and when you hit the set you unstuck it. You need to call a tech to put in a color wheel the part is about 100 dollars plus labor.
