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

Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

Got used Toshiba 57H81 and picture is fuzzy like 3D. Touch focus error message shows.


If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Dark, fuzzy picture


The fluid in the CRT bulbs is most likely cloudy. Check the blue to see if fluid is clear. If fluid is clear, then likely your flyback transformer is failing. I assume you already check the brightness and contrast settings on the tv.

You have bad solder connections in the deflection circuit. Call a good TV tech unless you know what you are doing. You could get an electrical shock from a charged capacitor.

Go into the tv menu and select the Preferences menu and set your picutre preference from Theater to Normal. The TV is currently in Theater mode, wich is for viewing with no lights on in the room. Switching it to normal lightens the pictue a lot.

57H81 projection tv has very wiggly picture.


This is the Hyper Module that needs repaired. There are several small sm caps that dry out in this model. It's the module standing up to the right covered by a can as we call it. I really don.t recommend you trying to repair it. One slip and that module is done and you can't by a new or rebuilt one anymore. Please let a repair center look at it and do the work. You won't regret it.
