This Toshiba Cinema Series projection big - Televison & Video

This Toshiba Cinema Series projection big screen(not sure the model) was given to me by a friend. it worked fine the last time they used it, but then set unused fora long time. now sometimes when i first turn it on tbe red convergence gets all wonky(kinda looks 3D) for anywhere from one to about five minutes, then it just fixes itself. is this normal, or is my red tube in need of replacement?

SOURCE: Is this Pioneer Elite Pro 118 worth fixing?

You most likely have cold solder connections on the convergence IC's or on the B+ sources for the convergence. The longer you wait to have this simple repair done, the worse this will get and cost you double or maybe even triple of what it will cost now. Good Luck

SOURCE: the Screen looks 3D & Colors don't line up on my big screen????

If the convergence is off more than 1/2 inch or so you can't adjust. you have a failure of hardware. most likely the output IC. This set has 2 outputs for convergence. Each output contains 3 circuits, Six circuits altogether 2 red ,2 blue and 2 green. The normal customer adjustment will only alow adjustment of blue and red. They should be converged onto the green. There is a much more complex adjustment in the service mode for Geometry and convergence. These adjustments are only needed when you replace a failed componnent like the output ic. These ICs have been upgraded several times since the production of this set. The latest and most powerfull version is STK394-160. If feel up to it I suggest changing both outputs and the corresponding output resistors. Then do a complete geometry and convergence alignment.

SOURCE: Looks like 3D - the red won't converge and is distorted

55H70 model uses two of the STK-392-110 CONVERGENCE IC CHIPS.

If red is skewed and will not adjust you need to replace both chips and any of the protect resistors around them that are gone---Most of the time just the two chips need to be replaced.

You can buy a pair of the chips on Ebay for less than 12 dollars plus shipping----

The chips are black in color--2 1/2 wide X 1 1/2 tall with 18 pins each and are mounted on large metal heat sinks side by side----THEY WILL HAVE THE STK-392-110 PRINTED ON THE FRONT OF THEM IN WHITE.

The question is are you able to do this yourself? If you can you can save the set and a lot of money--most shops are going to charge 300 or more for this kind of repair---IT SHOULD BE FIXABLE IN YOUR HOME.

I HAVE repaired hundreds of these sets--just got back home from doing a Panasonic that uses the exact same parts your set uses.

The chips fail because a white grease to quickly transfer heat from them to the heat sinks dries out after time and one of the chips goes.

Let me know if you need more directions--the hard part of this repair is getting at the chips and the ability to unsolder and replace them.

I have a 65 inch toshiba cinema series it's says

if a large rear projection set that just says HD, it likely is HD ready which means it needs a set top box connected to the Colorstream input marked 1080 on the rear of the set--It will only likely be 1080i and not p---owner manual would confirm this.

Our tv is 10 years old toshiba cinema series it has blue and red

It will be 11 years next month that I've had my Toshiba 55H55 Cinema Series and have the same problem every now and then, if you haven't already done so, go to the picture settings and scrolling down to conversion and it will take you through 3 steps of adjustments,there is a white cross in the middle of the screen line up the red first and then the blue, it will then take you to a screen with numbers, ID the clearest number and exit out, you should have a clear picture again. I hope this helps.
