Question about Toshiba TW40X81 40" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Toshiba 50H81 - inputs are not providing color picture

The picture is fairly clear, but the image feed is totally black and white. I have tried all three video inputs and both colorstream HDMI inputs, but all have either this problem, or a distorted screen. I have tried different cables and 2 different Wiis to make sure its the TV. I have reset the image settings in the menu, and have messed with color controls and such. I can't seem to get the picture in color. The menu icons are in full color. And when I do the color convergence stuff, it is also in color- so I know the TV can do it.

    I should clarify: I just got this from a friend, who says it worked fine for her. And if I'm on the video feeds, there is color but the picture is very distorted. On the HDMI plugs is when the picture is pretty clear but there is no color.

SOURCE: Toshiba 57HX81 is all wiggly and distorted (youtube video attached)

I don't know about that. Someone probably was rough with it and messed them up. You should have a technician look at it.

SOURCE: Redish distorted cable picture until I change input source and then go back to cable input

I have direct TV and I have the same problem also. It happens about 1 ot of 8 times. All I do is turn off the satellite receiver for a few seconds and turn it back on while the TV is left on. It works everytime. Don't drive yourself crazy with repairs and the like. It is just one of those things.

Toshiba 50H81 very dark, blurry picture on all inputs.


check if the problem looks zig zag looking or it its not present in the PIP window. If so this may be an issue with the hypermodule - you can google TV repair Kits to find parts.

Picture is only clear on color steam 2 and shacky on every other input diferent equip. have been tryed


Possible that the input logic selector is faulty as there can be a digital gate failure.This can cause the input to be scrambled and so there is loss of sync. which can result in the poor picture. So it is important to trace the input, check using a signal feed to find the switching fault.
It can also be related to a fault in the video board but the fault points to this section as the video signal is clear otherwise.

Toshiba 50H81 projection television


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


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 more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

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

*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

I assume that you mean color images are being produced in black and white. If that's the case, there's a document on the HP web site that shows you what to look for and provides solutions:

Hitachi pj-tx100 black and white picture when using s-video


s-video carries luminance and chromanance. In simple terms, luma provides a a black and white picture, chroma the color data. without chroma, you get no color. Either - the cable is bad (usually in the form of bent/broken pins in the connector ends - the source device is bad - the projector input is bad
