Toshiba TW56X81 Convergence issues

Couple of days ago my Toshiba TW56X81 TV started having a major convergence problem. The Red is way off with a Bow at the left end of the screen. This definitely cannot be fixed with the standard convergence settings screen in the menu as I have learnt. Wondering what could be wrong here. Reading on the net it seem like it might be the Lens IC. Wanted to verify if that is a likely area . Also looking to find a service manual for this TV. any pointers on where to get one online. Have tried multiple places and nobody seems to have it. Thanks in advance

Re: Toshiba TW56X81 Convergence issues

I retired from the TV repair business because if you are not an authorized repair service center most manufacturers will not even talk to you. If you are electronically inclined you can repair this tv. your problem is a bad convergence ic. you need to be able to locate it and replace it. it probably has about 15 or 18 legs that need to be unsoldered and a new replacement re-installed

Could you tell me how to get into the service menu of my toshiba rear projection tv?

Most TV repair shops have a warranty 30, 60, or 90 days. Call him back. You probably have a convergence IC failing or a resistor changing value in the green convergence output circuit.

Resetting convergence daily on Toshiba 43h70

Hi Mark, tough call without putting a scope to the circuit, either the convergence IC`s are going bad, signal from DCU is going bad (digital convergence unit), or possibly bad solder somewhere in the convergence circuit, I`m afraid your going to need a tv tech for that problem, BMW Rider

Red Colr Convergence

I believe you dont need the Ic's yet but if the problem is not corrected fast you might soon,you have already diagnosed the problem and that is a loose conection in the red convergence amp,if you are familiar with tv service is something you can do, carefully remove the back cover and locate the convergence amplifiers,they are mounted in heatsinks and have the markings STK--- ---(6 numbers) in the front,all 3 are the same,flip the board and remember that some conector might come loose when you flip the board,if you are not too familiar with tv service seek the assistance of a servicer and make sure some other overheated areas are resoldered as well,the repair should not be expensive now.Let us know how it goes or if you need more information.
