Question about Toshiba 57H82 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Distorting The top 4-5 inches of the screen are distorted. When you first turn the tv on all of the screen is distorted. If you use the touch focus button on the front it helps clear it up some. It gets better the longer the tv is on but the top portion never clears up completely. Please help!!

If it is wavy lines across the top it is probably the scan converter/ hyper bd they are becoming hard to find/expensive you can repair them but it requires many surface mounted capacitors and requires some VERY skilled soldering.

Kv-35xbr48 turns on fine nice picture then horizontal lines form distorting picture like interference also is the back hard to take off and put on needs a good vacum thanks for any suggestion

At first the picture is ok, and then distorted with horizontal lines i thinks. If the horzontal lines are parellel acros the screen, with an inch apart across the whole screen, your tv needs screen adjustments. Screen voltage may be high. look into the crt base also. Change it first. These also not resolve the problem, LOT may be faulty, with respect to screen focus pack. May need replacement. Try first setting screen voltage to a lower settings and observe.
