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.

Re: No Sound, wavy horizontal lines, blinking picture,...

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.

Wavy lines

This TV uses small voltage regulators. On each side of the regulators is the input voltage and the regulated output voltage on the other side. There are capacitors used for stabilization on the input and output. Change these capacitors.
