Perhaps 2 things. Does TV get a picture without DVD connected? If so I would bet you have a faulty connection in your signal board where the in jacks are at the back of the TV . Check to make sure cable from DVD are not bad, I have used cables before and got a false positive. Try turning and spinning the jacks once you have a picture.Make sure your signal board is firmly pressed into its slot on the signal board chassis. Thats it for now. Good luck.

I'v have a toshiba 57h81 and I'm unable to get the tv and cable remote to work


first try replacing the batteries in the remote, second make sure that the remote is adjusted to "tv" using the input button. The "cable/tv " selects the input being either ant or cable. google for owner's manual for more infromation..

Issue with our Toshiba 50H82 - overnight it has stopped playing DVD's properly - a solid black rectangle obliterates 75% of the screen. Any idea?


Hi,
Do you see same solid black box in all inputs or just in dvd picture?
If solid box appears only with dvd picture then its generated by dvd player, check dvd player Menu and turn off any subtitle settings.
And if solid black rectangular appears in all inputs of TV like cable etc then check Close Caption feature in TV and turn off CC function.
Hope this will solve your TV problem.
Thanks.

Toshiba 57HX81: Green works but Blue and Red seem to be out.


Do you still have reds? Is the image still clear though discolored? If so you ought to replace the blue bulb which has most likely failed. The part no for the 57HX81 model blue CRT bulb is TOSHIBA     23008753.

Toshiba 57HX81 is all wiggly and distorted (youtube video attached)


I don't know about that. Someone probably was rough with it and messed them up. You should have a technician look at it.

Bad picture until tv warms up


this is a very common occurance in these sets. toshiba has issued a servece bullteen with this set. Sorry to tell you this but this is a problem with some very small capacitors on what is known as the hypermodule. in my shop we fix 2 to 5 of these a month. you really have to know how to solder. Idealy replace the hypermodule is the best way. but......that board is hard to find. so we replace these 11 very very small componets with twezzers and a big magnifier. we charge about 250 to 350 for this repair.

Picture is of poor quality (wavy)


This may indicate a problem with the RF tuner. When you are using the DVD player is the output of the DVD using the F (RF Coax) Conncetor or is the DVD connect to the TV using the Video/Audio cables (either Composite (Red, White, Yellow) or Component (Red, Green, Blue)). I am do however believe this to be a RF tuner problem. Make sure that the TV is set to channel 3 and the cable box is connected to the TV (set to channel 3). What you could also do is get digital cable and use the video output jack as the input to the TV on one of your aux positions.

I would first make sure the tunner is on channel 3 when using the regular cable box, or if you are using the TV's cable ready features make sure the tunner is working correctly, this might have to be done by a qualifide TV repair person.

I hope this helps
Thank you,

Rolling lines from bottom to top on Toshiba 57hx81


Mike I suppose it might be the Flex converter failing on you, you will probably want a repairman on this one, these are really complicated to work on and if there is about 5yrs of age on set it may need sent in for a rebuild on the flex.
