Question about Toshiba 19A26 19" TV

1 Answer

Toshiba CA20209

I put this puppy away in the box after a year of use and it sat in heated storage for 12 years.
Took it out of the box and the picture only extended from the top to mid tube with the menus and channel displays scrunched up. After running for about 1/2 hour, the picture decends all the way to the bottom  but the menu is half out of sight.
I assume some electrolytic capacitor in the virtical control has dried out but I have no schematics and no clue where anything is. I hate to to discard the equipment if can be repaired.
Can anyone out there help?

1st things first, as I always say....

1. Check your soldering around the vertical section. Most sets have defects in thier soldering of the components under the board, with time. Especially true of RCA and Zenith sets, but all makes are not exempt! Again, check this first and fix as necessary.

2. Look for one or more electrolytic capacitors in the vertical section, maybe around 100uf 35v ,1uf 50v or a 220uf 35v or similar values. Change these, even if they look physically ok., observing the polarity of each. Most of the repairs I do involve these components. They fail with time and change value. Higher value caps , like 1000uf, 2200uf, etc., are usually not the reason for vertical troubles, just to note.

Further steps, if needed:

3. You might even have a shorted or open diode next to the vertical chip. It is usually black with a gray stripe on it. Be sure to replace it with the same polarity as the old one- the "stripe: denotes the cathode side of the diode. Do not get it backwards, (important!) - follow the "arrow" symbol on the board... you can check the diode with most multimeters. It should read in only one direction as a rule of thumb. If it's shorted, you'll get a reading in both directions, and if open, no reading of course. You can use most generic, 1 amp diodes (not zeners) to replace it, I found.

4. Your vertical chip itself may be bad, but you'll usually get a line straight across if it is. If after doing the above with no result, you may want to change it.

Good luck...

Fuel injectors


You can go on the internet & see the companies that offer
injector cleaning

There are about 5 that have been around 20 to 30 years,
so go with them

What no one knows, is that only removing the injectors as you have & mailing them away for ultra sonic cleaning,is the ONLY Proper way to have them tested,cleaned & flow matched

You follow the shipping instructions on the site

Have to air them out & sandwich bag each injector & then wrap them all & put in a box to mail away

I would recommend anyone reading this post, to do so & have the
injectors cleaned every 10 to 12 years, or your fuel trim will have some unexplained numbers & your converters will wear out quicker

Are you using the rf antenna input for TV or 1 of the VIDEO inputs from a cable box or sat receiver. If the latter check to see if you unplugged the audio fron the box White and red wires from box. If thats ok Plug that dvd player into that input using the cabes from the dvd player .If you now have sound change ables from box. if still no sound cable box bad. If still no sound from that input check for solder connection on input jacks. If antenna input is used replace the tunner intv.

No picture on my Toshiba 42HP66 plasma tv.


I too have this problem with no help from hh Gregg, where I bought the tv, and no help from Toshiba. I resorted to calling the BBB and complaining about the defective workmanship. I took the tv, which is less than 2 years old, apart and found the y-sus board, behind the y-sus board is a foam rubber spacer to seperate the circut board from the backside of the screen. I think this pad is designed to prevent heat buildup in the y-sus board. The pad itself is held on by glue and that glue melted causing the y-sus board to short out. I noticed this after finding a tacky substance behind the board. The heat from the plasma screen melted this and also the pad itself. Toshiba claims no resposibility because the tv was out of warranty. Thanks Toshiba.

Toshiba 46In HD Rear projection TV Vertical lines on screen


We also have vertical lines with our JVC 62"... turning it off and letting it cool down is the only solution. For us, we know it's a problem with heat. We simply are wits end on fixing it. added two additional fans, a exterior fan to blow heat away from the back of the tv, pulled everything else away, etc.... Anyway, goodluck.
