Question about Toshiba 57H81 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Can I move this TV on a trailer?

I need to move this TV from one house to another. I'd like to use a trailer rather than a truck because of the height. However, trailers tend to be bouncy and I worry that this could damage the internal components.

Anyone have experience with this or know the proper way to move this TV?

Thanks

You would be best moving it on a truck, vs. a trailer. I know that height is a concern, but this damage due to debris can be minimized by judicious use of refrigerator boxes (see local sears store) to protect it.

Either way, plan on having to realign the screen when you finally get it moved. This is normal. Moving on a trailer just might permanently misalign the screen so that the processor in the tv cannot compensate for it.

UHaul also rents blankets / pads without having to rent anything else as well. You might consider that option.

On the other hand, this tv was likely trucked across America inside a trailer on the back of a semi. But that trailer also had a lot more weight in it as well. Personally, I would move it using a pickup.

HITACHI MODEL # 53UDX10B has a flashing red light and a buzzing sound


If it was transported likely the set was damaged--one of the three picture tubes used could have been damaged--the flashing light is the set trying to come on and the buzzing is related to whatever is bad.

It needs to be opened and inspected.

I have a sony rear projection, I moved it from house to house, now the colors are separated, you can see the red the green and blue appart, what could have happened?


Rear projection TV has convergence section to converge / merge all 3 CRTs picture into one picture and when this section gets some problem, TV does not show correct picture.
You need to check D board that has convergence circuit and output ICs and in my opinion there are few cold/ dry solder joints on same D Board, find and re-solder them to solve TV problem.
If you have no experience of TV repair, call local TV tech.
Thanks.

TRANSPORTING A REAR PROJECTION tv


One major suggestion i will make it do not let it fall over or even tip to the side. With most projection tvs any damage to alignment or anything like that can be undone with a correction to the bulb alignment. Any tv repair place should be able to walk you through this or do it for you for a relatively reasonable fee.

Re Degaussing


Now Degaussing and convergence are two different things, if you say its degaussing then you should have just a color differential in a certain area, meaning the color should not be arched, everything that passes through should pass throu only with the changing of color. Now if its a convergence the the color may lift upward in an arch, likely separated from the other colors, Red, Blue,or Green. So now which do you think you have? Deguassing usually give you a highish green color or yellow

Panasonic PT-51G44 51 transporting?


No you should only transport it standing up to ensure the optics do not get messed up. I have seen peeps do this and nothing happens. I have also seen pros do the move on the back or the sides and it tears up the TV set. Good Luck
