Question about Toshiba 65H81 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

General maintenance of rear Projection televisions

We purchased a TV from a friend, and it works well.  There are a couple dark areas along the bottom, and I think I saw spider webs once.  We take things apart frequently, but I wanted to ask an expert about what we should do with this "new to us" TV.

Is it worth having someone "go over it"? We were also told by a friend that theway we watch it is "Normal" mode would burn in the bars on the left and right. Is burn in a concern? We haven't upgraded our receiver to HD yet.

Great site!! We just fixed our Dacor oven, and I had to ask about the TV

Can't help you about taking the thing apart, but I know people have in order to clean the cobwebs out.

As far as Normal mode, I've heard that you can get reverse-burn in. What can happen is that since you never use the left and right sections of the TV, these portions will appear brighter than the center portion over time. To avoid this, you should just bite the bullet and watch it in SmoothWide mode (Mode 1 I believe?). Yes, sometimes people look "stretchy" but you get over it real fast.

You can try cleaning the lens/mirrors of the set with a lint free cloth and a cleaning liquid made for cleaning glass. The dark image can sometimes be caused due to dust on these parts. If that does not work then I am afraid that you need to purchase replacement CRTs(the three tubes at the back of the set). Each of them produce one color - Red, Green and Blue and all 3 have to be replaced to resolve the problem, unless you can visually identify a malfunction with one of the tubes(If one of tubes is a lot dimmer than the other 2).

Do u know the dimensions of the rear projection/it quit working


These are the dimensions of the TV itself (including the bottom piece)
The height of the TV is 37.2 inches tall
the width is 49.6 inches wide
the depth is 17.4 inches deep.
the weight of the TV is 132.5 pounds (just thought you would want the weight as well if you are considering purchasing a stand)
I hope this helps and good luck!

Red-striped ghost images.


when you leave your TV (no matter what kind) and you leave it for long periods of time on a static image or something.. the image tends to burn in to the screen... so changing the glass would be a way to fix it.... the problem is that that kind of repairmen is more expensive and difficult than buying a new set...

Convergence ic's are about to go! Look for loose connection on board first and if no loose conn. Replace IC's these are the big IC's STK-392-***. And there are also resistors along side them that has to be changed also. check for blown fuse too! IN same area.

Toshiba 51H83 51 in. Rear Projection pisture issue


I have a wild guess. I have the same tv and channel 72 is the proper channel to watch tv on. I don't know why, but maybe try channel 72 instead of the usual channel 3. Good luck, maybe a quick fix, maybe not!

Dark screen at top of TV picture


If this is a projection set then a center channel speaker sitting on top would have no effect.

If its a rear projection TV. It sounds like the Lamp is shot on the projector, or is going. Look in the back and see if it is lit if it is flickering I would definitely suggest replacing it. If that doesnt repair it then I would ultimately suggest the optical engine which is the projector of the TV
