Question about Toshiba 51H93 51" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

I bought a used Toshiba 51HC85 less than 2 months ago. It has been working fine...until yesterday. I watched the morning news, and when I came home for lunch, it wouldn't come on. The red power light comes on (doesn't blink), and there is a low humming noise coming from the speakers. The screen will not come on. We have tried unplugging the set for several hours, but with the same result. Can anyone help me pinpoint the problem, or estimate repair costs?

Sounds like the power supply went south on you.

Its likely that one of the supplied voltages is missing or low coming out of the regulated power supply. Its not something that you'll be able to do yourself. If you call a Toshiba authorized service center, expect to spend $250-400 to resolve this.

White horizontal lines covering picture on Toshiba 51HC85


The set uses a Hyper board inside that processes all signals, it is well known for this issue, board no longer available=reason is quite simple : about a dozen tiny surface mounted filter caps on that board with age dry out, at first it will work after warms up as poor caps regain some capacitance and seem to be ok.

Buy a new set, you can send that board out and have it repaired/rebuilt but the last one I saw which was under extended warranty cost about 200 just for the board rebuild.

In the last 4 years Here on Fixya I have encountered only 2 people who were able with instructions had the skill to remove the board and replace those caps, both were top notch computer repair techs.

Hello..Toshiba 51HC85, 2005 model. Turn on TV and verticle wavy lines appear until TV is warmed up completely. After warm up the picture is great again. Any ideas?


I've had the same problem for about the last 6 months. My workaround which was to leave the tv on 24 7 and just turn off the TWC service box. But now the symptoms are vertical dark lines going all the way across screen. My guess is that it will cost more to fix than worth it. I paid @$2000 for it new in 2004. Technology has gotten better so I may just go out and get a Samsumg for considerably less and be way better off. None of Toshiba's products had done well for me. 2 laptops, 3 tvs, etc. have taught me this.

No picture, siren type noise as restarting


My Toshiba dlp 62hm116 was used for 3 months then stored for 2 years, I turned it on yesterday and it makes a loud grinding noise which I think is probably from the exhaust fan area and the picture is black except white at both vertical sides. It worked fine the last time I used it 2 years ago. Any ideas?

Toshiba Rear Projection TV picture color is now a greenish hue


Hi, I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website:  

http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=3229 

If you are not able to adjust the convergence using the remote you will need to replace the convergence chips. 

Typical Symptoms

1) Convergence menu does not work for one or more colors.  
Such as: Red moves up,down, but left or right fails. 

2) Screen is bowed looking.

If you have one or more of the problems above you need to replace the convergence chips. You can get a kit and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com  

Hope this helps :)

Blue Convergence out of sync


you need to adjust the convergence. you set up convergence 1 then 2. follow the manual. (Its easy, you just align the + signs so they make one white one (instead of three green, red, blue) sounds like something or someone bumped the tv, causing the blue lens to shift a little.
