My toshiba tn61x81 projection tv

Ther bottom of my tv screen has a color problem.  The writing if in white is now green and pinkish-purple and also showing double.  Another words if the writing says ESPN in white it now looks like this..

ESPN ( this is in green on top)

ESPN (this is in pinkish -purple just below)

It kinda reminds me of the old 3-D effects.  What could this be and do we know the part to replace?  A part number or name would GREAT!

Re: my toshiba tn61x81 projection tv

Have you tried the convergence option in the menu? i believe it is under "picture". this allows for nine different sections of the screen to be adjusted when projection images get out of whack.

Screen turn green tv is 57 rear projection

Good Day,
It appears that you may have a green drive issue. Try adjusting the Sreen Control it is located in the front of TV.
1) Remove Speaker Grill (it just pulls off) start at one end, 2) Remove cover (5-6 screws), 3) Adjust control. The control is located on lower right side towards bottom. A small black device with 2 rolls of controls, adjust the center control on bottom row counter clock wise, until you get a black and white picture.(adjust with color control to min).
If this does not work you light bulb (CRT) is bad about a $750.00 repair.

Good Luck, Big Irish.

Toshiba TN61x81-- after convergence IC's replced

Please don't be offended by my suggestions if you are experienced at circuit repair.
You may have a cold solder joint or bridged joint. Check and re-check your connectors for placement. It is normal to have to adjust the convergence and focus after replacing the IC's. There should be a row of focus knobs (ususally covered by a piece of black tape) with the screen controls.
The convergence IC's won't affect the visibility of a color only the alignment.

The easiest way I have found to set the screen controls is to tune into an old black and white show, turn the green up until you see retrace then slowly turn it down until it just dissapears then adjust the blue and red for a true black and white picture.

The color seems to be off. No red, and lots of purple. This is a Toshiba 57H81 wide screen big box tv. It was purchased in 2002.

Could be a bad board within the tv but it is sometimes the source input meaning it could be dvd player, cable/satellite box, etc causing the loss of color but it is unlikely. I have one of these tvs and they use red green and blue projectors to reproduce the colors so when the red projector fails then you get purple which is green and blue colors combined without the red. I have found it to be sometimes a bad connection inside the tv and I found insects such as roaches inside others. Using extreme caution when opening the rear cover of any tv due to dangerous and fatal high voltage. You might find that simply cleaning out the inside of tv and reseating all the connectors might resolve your issue otherwise you would have haul this tv to a repair shop where you pay half the price of a new flat screen lcd for just repairing this tv which will probaly have another color go out next month.

50inch toshiba color problem

Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

Have a model 43A10 toshiba tv, has a purple color at very bottom of screen about inch tall. When i go into the menu, looks like writing is not lined up on the lower options of the menu. and partly up...

you either have a color purity problem or a convergence problem. purity can be effected by electro magnets in power supplys of audio amps and subwoofers too close to the tv

Convergence is the ability of the red green blue to drop on top of each other. can usally be adjusted via remote control. Please claify and repost.
