Question about Toshiba TP55H95 55" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

Picture unclear/red color projection unclear not aligned

When my TOSHIBA TP55H95 is cold at turn on and for about 15 minuted the red part of the picture is not in alignment with a red curve at the top of the screen. After this warm up the alignment will quickly align however the picture is not as clear especially at the bottom as it should be. Major question is should I spend the money to fix or move on to a new Higher tech TV? Can I fix this myself?

SOURCE: colors out of alignment; curved lines

this sounds like a convergence issue.. one thing you are going to want is a good test dvd.. avia - guide to home theater or video essentials are two very good ones. anything that will supply you with test patterns and let you pause on them will work.

you will need to get into the service menu, using your remote press DISPLAY, 5, VOL+, POWER in quick sequence. once the screen comes up you should have green letters and numbers at the top of the screen. at this point, keys 1 and 4 change the item, keys 2 and 5 change the category, keys 3 and 6 change the value, mute enters write mode, enter executes it.

you will want a test pattern displayed that has a center point, enter the pje section of the menu and go to tphp, if you don't see a crosshair, press 6. you are going to want the convergence grid and the test pattern displayed simultaneously, so press 9 until both are on screen. it will be a crosshatch pattern overlaying your test image. use the joystick button (left or right) to roughly line the crosshatch up with your test image.

now go to tpvp and use the joystick (up and down) to finish lining things up. once you are happy with the changes, hit mute then enter to save it to memory.

this next part is from a tweaks file in the public domain that i have for this model and use any time i am working on one of these.

How to Enter the Convergence Mode
Once you're in the service menu, you need to access the convergence mode. Press the 2 or 5 key until you see PJE in white blocky letters (you should be able to get there quickly by pressing 5 once or twice). Now press 9 on the remote. You will see a bracket appear in the middle of the screen. Press 6 and cycle through the different types of patterns until you get a white grid on a black background.
Controls
Once in the convergence mode (activated by pressing 9 in the PJE section), the buttons on the remote work differently. Keys 1 and 4 move the cursor around on the grid (convergence points) in a spiraling fashion. The joystick on the remote will adjust the position of the current color at that grid point. Key 3 cycles between red, green, and blue adjustments.
You may also depress the joystick, which will allow you to move the bracket freely around the grid. Press it again and you are back to being able to adjust the position of the current color at that grid point. Handy if you are just touching up an area and don't want to spiral through all the points.
How to Converge the CRTs
It's much easier to converge the set if you can see what you're converging. Green should be the color to converge to. The geometry (straightness of the grid) of the green CRT should be good enough - If you notice that some lines are definitely out of whack, you should straighten them.
We need to disable the red and blue CRTs. Press 2 until you get to the 2150P-2 category. Cycle through the items until you get to RGBS. Change the value to 2 (Green CRT Only).
Move back to the PJE category by pressing 5. You should be back at the grid with a green bracket - If you don't see one, press 3 until you do (the bracket may have been set on red or blue, which have been turned off). Navigate around the grid, correcting any obvious errors. Once you're satisfied, turn the red CRT back on (RGBS value of 6, Red and Green CRTs on), and return to the grid. Press 3 until the crosshair is red. Now, align the red to the green, getting as close as you can. By the way, not all grid points are selectable. Keep in mind that the edges of the screen will tend to be more out of focus, and harder to get "tight". Get it as close as you can. You also may notice that some points affect the position of other, nearby points. You'll get the feel for it after a short period of time. Now, do the same for blue, making sure to turn off red (RGBS value of 3, Blue and Green CRTs on). When you're all done, turn all the CRT's back on (RGBS value of 7, All CRTs on), and look to see the results. Touch up where it is needed (if needed at all).
I found the 100 IRE Crosshatch image really showed areas that still needed convergence. I would cycle within the PJE category (pressing 6) between the convergence grid (to fix errors) and the 100 IRE Crosshatch image (to view areas with convergence problems).
Save your convergence to memory by pressing MUTE followed by ENTER.
Remember, you need to do this for each mode you use - This doesn't mean for each input. It applies to 4:3 mode, 16:9 mode, and 1080i 16:9 mode (even though 1080i is a 16:9 mode, it requires its own convergence due to the higher scan-rate). Each mode is separate, and is saved separate, however, each one does tend to affect the other slightly.
Try not to use the Flash Focus. I know it's very easy to use, and they put it right there on the front of the set, so it basically begs to get pressed. But realize that pressing Flash Focus will rely on the sensors to converge your set - It will pretty much re-do all your hard work. It may get close, but it will never be as good as a service mode convergence.
Now that your convergence is done, you should re-register your new convergence to Flash Focus (FF). Ryan says below don't use Flash Focus, and I agree. However, if you do or someone else does, it shouldn't require nearly as much touching up if the new convergence is re-registered to Flash Focus. This is simple to do. While in the PJE category, press the Flash Focus button to initiate a re-registration process to the system. If the operation fails (I've never had this happen), press 0, followed by ENTER to restore the convergence settings you last saved. You'll need to investigate why it did not work. In the PJE category, change to item ERR and it should read a value other than 000 if your attempt at re-registering FF didn't work. If our attempt at re-registering did work, it should read a value of 000. Typically, reasons why re-registering FF won't work are due to overscan being reduced too much but there are other reasons too. Regardless, while you are investigating just don't press FF and you'll be fine.
I have read numerous forums regarding re-registering flash focus. Most say only re-register flash focus in Full. This is what I did. I only watch TV in Full mode anyway, so it worked well. I have read many people having troubles with other modes if they re-register flash focus in Wide Zoom mode so I can only say, read forums and ask questions if you do use your set in other modes before you re-register your flash focus in another mode besides Full.


hope this helps you,
trin

SOURCE: Adjusting the convergence after replace convergence chips

Hello fmnii,

Believe it or not the easy part was the replacing of the convergence amplifiers. Now for the hard part, static and dynamic convergence of the TV. To do this, what I usually do is not trust the onboard cross-hatch and alignment patterns, for this I use a signal/pattern generator to create the cross-hatch and alignment patterns. I follow the static convergence instructions first, and then the dynamic convergence instructions. This process taks about 6 - 12 hours (Yes 6 - 12 hours) if done correctly. I say use the instructions because each TV set is different. It sounds like you have your static convergence well in hand and you just need to do the dynamic.

If you can, try to get a signal/pattern generator (I use the VA62A).

I wish you well,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

When I turn on my rear projection tv & the tv is cold the color will float,the picture will shake side ways for about 15 minutes.what can I do to fix the proble?


You did not provide a model so I am not sure of the type of set u have. Wheather it be CRT, LCD, DLP or LED. My 1st guess regarding "color float" is possably the convergence board/section of your set. And the warming up issue could be the result of cold solder connections and/or faulty caps on 1 or more circuit boards. Search your model number through the internet for clues.

I Have a major convergence problem. It is a 55 inch Toshiba ColorStream Projection TV(tp55h95). It was fine until we moved it into the other room, and now it's like the color is bending at both sides of...


Color arching.... Ahhh Yeah they eventually do that after a few years. Good news is all you need is a screw driver and some of your time and patience.

The color gun is a small box with 3 screws on it. (Blue, Red and Green. Turning the screws (Slightly) on the gun will get rid of the color arching. I had blue arching on a sony 65" Rear projection a year later it was red arching if you leave it long enough it will be arching and in and out flashing of solid color. Whole mind trip you don't want to venture on.......

The box on my sony was in the very front of the tv. I removed the front speaker panels and accessed it very easily. The hardest part is getting the front panel off. Yours may be in the back.

Best regards and Semper Fi...

Picture is distorted for about 15 minutes after turning TV on. Was eventually clearing up but lately picture never gets completely clear.


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

Toshiba TP50G50 Theaterview picture is double with red color only


Your alignment is off. Go to the set up menu then convergence. hit right and you will be in the convergence menu. select the color that is not in alignment. The green line does not move. if blue and green are lined up the line will be cyan. if red and green are lined up the line will be yellow. when all three are lined up the color will be light. Best of luck!

Red light bflashing


Sometimes a power surge will cause a projection back TV to shut down and flash like that. If you unplug it from the wall and let it sit for a minute and then plug it back in, it should reset itself. If that doesn't work it will probably have to be serviced. If it does work, make sure you get a nice surge protector so you don't fry your TV.
