Question about Toshiba 57H81 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

57H81 projection tv has very wiggly picture.

I have a 57H81 rear projection tv. The entire picture is very 'wiggly' and distorted. The edges of the picture are like a saw tooth and that distortion pattern follows across the entire picture. Once in a while a few white verticle lines will appear on the picture. However, if I use the POP function to bring up the second picture right along side the first picture it will be perfectly fine. Both pictures side by side on the same channel and the first one is distorted and the second one is perfect. Any ideas? I have pretty good experience soldering and feel I confident in my abilities to do the repair, I just have no experience in diagnosing tv issues. Any help will be greatly appreciated. thankyou

This is the Hyper Module that needs repaired. There are several small sm caps that dry out in this model. It's the module standing up to the right covered by a can as we call it. I really don.t recommend you trying to repair it. One slip and that module is done and you can't by a new or rebuilt one anymore. Please let a repair center look at it and do the work. You won't regret it.

Got used Toshiba 57H81 and picture is fuzzy like 3D. Touch focus error message shows.


If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Fuzzy/ distorted tv pic


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

DIstorted picture for 480p input only


Many set have two differant convergance settings one for 480 and one for1080 this is because when it changes mode the set runns a differant frequencys, what may have happened is you have a cold solder joint somewhere that takes this fifteen minutes to corect itself, might want to start by resoldering the convergance and high voltage curcuits
