Toshiba 36A50 Noise Issue

My TV generates a noisy picture and audio noise, both of which vary in intensity. They could even go off for a few seconds. The noisy picture and audio noise are appear at the same time. Especially the white lettering seems very choppy. I brought in another TV and plugged the TV signal cable from my noisy tv to this other. The other TV had no noise. So its definitely my TV. My email is and CELL is 603-729-0101

Toshiba, 36A50 picture is a thin white line. Can this be repaired?

Yes...this TV may be repaired. The line you describe is in the center and is horizontal across the TV. You will need to resolder the vertical IC pins. This vertical IC is mounted on a large heatsink. Under the board you will see there are 5 or 7 pins that will have rings around them. Resolder these. And you should replace two or three capacitors that are next to this IC. A bad cap will overheat an IC and separate the solder grounds. If you can find my expertise page on this website, you will see the repair in more detail. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.

36A50 Digital ready?

Hi duce1500,

Unfortunately, the 36A50 is not HDTV-ready. That means you will need a converter box. Here is a link to the model's specs, which includes this information:

I should mention, however, that if it's connected to cable (or certain satellite services), you won't need a converter to watch the TV - you'll receive the digital signal (although you won't have the 1080-pixel HD resolution - the 36A50 only has 850 lines of resolution).

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Picture only in middle of screen

Sounds like vertical problems on your circuit board. Unless you have some electronics experience you'd better take it in for repair.

The inside of a tube TV contains high voltages even when off and unplugged.
