Question about Toshiba 36A40 36" TV

1 Answer

Picture size i have a 36" tv,the picture is too big for the screen..the pic size doesn't work (to my knowledge) on the remote control. i bought the t.v 2nd hand, so i don't have a user guide to it.. i also have a problem with the color,i guess, my tv is mostly dark. i tried to adjust the color and tint, brightness, nothing works good. in a night scene from a movie or show i can't see anything.when i also go into the main menu and try to find a solotion for my problems i have to reset the pic format. another problem is if the power goes out in my town, when it comes back on so do my tv.. i think i have a lemon but any help would be great.. thanks

Assuming power supply voltages are correct,ie regulated sources,you will need access to the servicer menu via the service manual or CD ROM info for that make/model.(2)reset screen control adjust on IHVT (transformer).(3)solder any/all bad connects,esp.regulator pins.

Sony Trinitron XBR 36 in (TV control on Top Middle of set) (set-up / tv/video / vol / channel / power) when set is powered on the standby/stereo light Continuous blinks red once a second, no pausing -...

after 4 or 5 yrs EHT ( transformer that supplies voltage to CRT TUBE - TV TUBE ) becomes weak - then 1 of the indication is exactly as you have described .....after few seconds picture comes slowly & immediately (after few seconds). it gets off only red light blinks............ solution is EHT ( also called as flyback transformer ) should be replaced....... {{ few details about EHT---- its size will be around 3inch X 2inch X 2inch ---it will have 2 or 3 knobs to adjust focus , brightness ------ at bottom around 10 pins will be there ------- from EHT 1 thick red colour cable goes to CRT TUBE --------- on EHT its part number will be there }} -------- so if user is a technical person having idea about components ( resistors, transistors, diodes, etc ) , having tools like multimeter ( to check components) , soldering iron, soldering lead, flux, desoldering wig ( for removing components), etc also little experience in servicing field( compulsory) ----------------- then user can remove EHT from main board ---- take to electronic shop ----- buy same type EHT --------- fix to mainboard ( knobs on EHT should be adjusted according to picture --- after switching TV --- this adjustment is very important ) ----------iam from bangalore ..since it is very risky job i suggest to contact TV service engineer ------- because they are highly experienced & can fix this component very easily. ------------ [[ sometimes along with EHT another component called transistor ( big in size - situated close to EHT - it will have 3pins - its size will be 1inch X 1/2 inch X 1/2 cm --approximately ---- black in colour ----- fixed to aluminium metal ) --- will also gets deffective --- so this component also should be checked ]] ---- in your case this transistor is good ... because when this component gets deffective then TV won't get '' ON '' in your case only EHT should be replaced.........100% it works normally .....GUARANTEE....... vishnuswamy_4.jpg

Picture too large for screen

It appears that on this television you can only adjust the picture size when you are using the twin picture feature. You must adjust the picture size with your other remote control. Since I do not know whether you are connected to a cable box or a satellite tv box or a blu ray player or a DVD player I cannot be very specific. On your other remote control you should had an hd zoom button, aspect, format, ratio, #, or etc. Those buttons change the picture size. The other factor determining picture size is the resolution the equipment connected to your tv is set to. This tv supports 1080i but you should also try setting the connected equipment to 720p or 480p or 480i. Also the connected equipment may be connected to your tv in two places so make sure you are on the correct selection using the tv video button on the Sony remote.
