Question about Toshiba 50H81 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Wavy junping horizontal lines

My screen is covered with wavy and jumping horizontal lines. It started out when I first would turn it on, and it would take five to ten minutes to stop. Now it never stops. I can watch it after about an hour of being turned on, but it does not stop completely any more. Sure would appreciate a solution. Thanks

Requires the hyper board to be repaired . Has to be sent to Toshiba, unless you can change around 15 surface mount capacitors, They usually charge around 420 to 450 Canadian

My samsung projection tv has blue wavy lines on top of screen, I adjusted convergence, the blue will not line up horizontally, is there a inexpensive solution?

It means one of the chips has a bad section inside it, both chips and maybe a resistor near them will have to be replaced, involves soldering as each has about 18 pins soldered in

Check with who sells some kits for this by brand and model number

Wavy lines

Are the wavy lines horizontal or vertical? If they are horizontal and up near the top of the screen it could be 60HZ interference from a power cord running over the cable from the DVD player to the TV. There could also an internal breakdown of the shielding by the power supply of the DVD player. If the lines are vertical it is likely the cable or maybe the input jack on the TV. Could be a number of things.

I would suspect defective filter capacitors in the sweep circuits as well as the power supply source voltages.

Wavy Screen on Startup

I gather from your post that wavy can mean two possible things as the TV comes on, you see the picture flow like ocean waves? In this case you may have 60Hz hum modulating with the picture, this is actually unlikely these days, but I have heard it happens sometimes. The other thing it could be is light horizontal tearing. This happens when the horizontal frequency is too high or too low. You are not going to like my solution because I feel that for problems like this the set must be analyzed not just subjected to "shotgun troubleshooting", so here I go, Take the TV to a repair shop.
