Question about Toshiba 65H81 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

No Sound, wavy horizontal lines, blinking picture, missing picture modes.....Piece of Junk!

I bought this Toshiba 65'' Widescreen HDTV back in 2002 and just after the warranty ended the speakers quit working. Then a year later it quit displaying in "Full" screen mode while using component hdtv inputs which meant I never knew the scores of the Final Four or Football games because the only modes it would show would be the zoomed in video modes. Now, for 100% of the video inputs, the screen constantly blinks and wavers all over the place. It is worse as you go to the top of the screen. When it first started doing this it would get better as the TV warmed up for 30 minutes or so, but now it just blinks and has blurry lines everywhere. I took of the back panel and the inside parts and wires are mostly coating in a black dust. Is it worth anything to clean it? Anyone seen this problem and can I just buy the board part and replace it myself because if I have to pay alot to repair this TV, I would get more enjoyment hauling it to a field and blasting it multiple times with a shotgun.

It is a good tv over all, so I think is worth fixing. because when it works, it give out a very nice picture compared with other rear projectors or DLP's for that matter. and it was also expensive for a reason, no?
It's the convergence IC's that need replacing. STK 110. you can put in there 150 or 180's. If you are not handy with this kind of stuff have someone put it in for you for about 200 bucks and the 2 chips are 10-15 bucks each.

Hope this helped

Mitsubishi rearTV has intermittent wavy lines running throughout


Do you have anything to test it in 1080i? Does it do it on all connections or just one? I had a similar problem with my TV that turned out to be a bad input board. Mine would only display 1080i through the Component connections. All others would show pink and green wavy lines. It cost me around 500 to fix it. Unplug the TV. Remove the back cover for the TV. Using a NON-metal object, or gloves, wiggle the input board (that has all the video connections on it) slowly back and forth and see if the problem comes and goes. You will have to have someone watching for you. If something is loose on that board, the problem should show itself. Narrowing down the problem will probably save you money on repair bills.

4.14.1 Understanding Viewing Features
Your LCD HDTV features four viewing modes and Picture-In-Picture (PIP)/Picture-by-Picture (POP) mode.
You can switch viewing modes using the remote control.
4.14.2 Viewing Modes
Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3).
Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom.
Zoom Mode
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1 source)
program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to fill the
width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to remove most of
the source material’s black bars. This mode is good for programs or
movies with sub-titles.
Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.

Note: Viewing modes are saved based on input. For example, you lasted watched a DVD in widescreen
mode and then watched TV in standard mode. When you switch back to DVD input, the viewing mode
will return to widescreen.
