Question about Toshiba 61HX70 61" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

61HX70 61in. terribly distorted picture blinking red power light

I think i have been having the same problem as a few other people with the blinking red power light.  The only difference with mine is when i plug the TV in the picture  comes on but is very distored and you cant really make out any words on the menu screen or channel numbers that appear.  Then after about 30 seconds the TV turns off and the blinking power light comes on.  Just curious if because the TV actually turns on when plugged in if this could be a different problem then others may be having.  Is this something you can fix by replacing a fuse or something else simple or should i just call someone so i dont damage it further.

First i had a problem with distorted picture and shot down - i replaced IC's and now i have another issue with the green and red bowing and not lining up on the screen - solution for both issues are discussed here -- replace the IC's -- but i did just that, neatly and carefully, IC's came from ebay
is there anything else i should check/replace, try diferents IC's or does it need calibration?

thank you all you gurus!

Turned itself off. I turned it back on and the green power light blinks for awhile then blinks red for picture or sound

Get rid of this TV. Had one and replaced the bulb and light engine many times. Just buy a Samsung or Vizio 50+ inch instead and be very happy. Those Panasonic projection TV's were terrible. You will find a 50 inch Vizio for around $500 bucks and it will blow your mind how great the picture looks.

The screen on our 50H81 Toshiba is blank, there is no audio and the red light by the power switch is blinking at a rate of one blink per second.

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Toshiba 60HX70 distorted picture, blinking red light

You could have a Power Supply Regulator Problem. Many times these sets will not hold Horizontal sync when there is excessive High Voltage or a problem with the High Voltage Regulation. This is not a problem you want to deal with yourself. I would recommend a Toshiba Repair Facility to come out and diagnose it.
Hope this helps,

Sony LCD television will not power on.

I get 5 blinking red lights for about a minute or so before it powers back down. The Sony TV has a specific light that i presume is supposed to light up when the bulb is out. I'm unsure if this is what it is.
no picture, no sound. tries to boot with green light blinking a few times. then goes to red blinking light, six in all, then waits a few moments, then another 6 blinking red light.
Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.
