Question about Toshiba TP50F50/51 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Picture goes to static and reappears

I have a Toshiba TP50F50 t.v. that seems to have a loose connection. We will be watching and the picture will go to static or the volume/audio will get loud or softer. This occasionally coincides with movement on our hardwood floors. At first stomping the floor would bring the picture back. When that became ineffective, I checked the cable/satellite in connection. Wiggling that worked for a while. Then it seemed the position/pressure on the plastic panel that housed the cable in connector played a part, because wiggling that will bring the picture back. Now, I have traced the connection inside to a card (like a computer card) that the satellite in cable is connected to inside. And wiggling that little card will bring the picture back. Sometimes it seems the back of the set is pretty warm, too. I don't know if heat would affect the connection. While it is good exercise to get up and wiggle these parts - and my parts :) - I would love to find a way to fix this long term. ANd before I run out of things to wiggle or electrocute myself by touching something in there I shouldn't. I really love this TV - it is a part of my family, and of course, I am broke, so fixing it would seem a less costly option. Any suggestions on exactly what part should be replaced?

Re: Picture goes to static and reappears

Sounds like the board has bad soldering connections on it.

While watching tv through the cable connection I get just static. but when I swithch to video mode or play a PS3 game, i see the picture just fine. What can I do to fix this.

You may have a bad cable fitting or a bad tuner--you have actually answered your own question:

Way around this issue is to connect a cable box that has the audio/video output jacks on the back to one of the rear AV inputs and BYPASS the tuner completely---watch cable from that input and change channels with the box.

Toshiba TP50F50 rear projection tv power light blinks on&

did you purchase these because you thought this was part of the problem? if is a convergance problem you should have some picture it would be distorted or color bars would be on the left or right of the screen. if the light is flashing and you have no picture at all or any audio you have a power supply problem. it is not letting the proper voltage energize the main board.

Sound, no picture

Sounds like you have a problem in the horizontal or verticle deflection circuits. maybe one of the regulators for those circuits. I would suggest getting the service manual so you are better equipped at diagnosing it. You can purchase the service manual at the following link for 10.99. Plus they will email it out to you quickly if you return to the site and request that they email it instead of mail it to you. Here is their link.
