Question about Toshiba TW40X81 40" Rear Projection Television
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.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

I had this with a rca once. Can you hear a crackeling noise coming from the flyback transformer? My problem was just the wire was loose

Probably your G-Hyper board. You will need expert servicer and should cost about 3-400.00

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

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.

you can get the convergence repair kit for your model that has both convergence IC and the six feed resistors at this link, The repair kit also has step by step instructions with pictures so you can do the repair your self. Heres the link.The 50H82 kit is the same for the 57H82, http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/product_info.php/pName/toshiba-50h71--50h81-convergence-repair-kit/cName/convergence-repair-kits
