Question about Toshiba 46H83 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Red Color our of allignment.

We woke up yesterday morning to our colors all out of whack on our Toshiba 61" rear projection tv. I have tried to use the convergence and I was able to fix the blue correctly, however, the red color will not correct. It is stuck to far to the right and will not move any more to the left to get it alligned...is there a way to fix this on my own?

    By using the convergence do you mean the Degaussing Ring?

If you can't adjust the red convergence in one direction then it is probably one of the convergence IC's. If you are handy and can solder then read on.

Before you replace the IC's, check for bad solder connections at the IC's and output resistors below the heatsink. Sometimes the solder connections crack over time.
Make sure the tv is unplugged for at least 5 minutes before poking around. The power cord can be unplugged from the power board and removed to keep anyone from plugging it in while you are working on it.
The STK's are the large 18 pin integrated circuits (chips) mounted to the large heat sink on the convergence board. This is the board on the right when viewed from the back of the TV.
The resistors are beneath the heat sink on the left side of the board. There are also fusible resistors, like #7711, on that side. There are NO pico fuses in this area.
Check the fuses on the Power board. This is the board on the left when viewed from the back of the TV. You can remove both boards in the carrier by carefully unplugging all connectors, noting their locations and routing.
To remove the high voltage wires from the splitter, mark them for position then grasp the boot and turn counter-clockwise about 10 degrees to unlock them and then pull up while holding the High voltage splitter. The small high voltage wire can be removed from the flyback transformer by pulling hard while holding the flyback.
STK392-110 can be replaced with STK392-120, STK392-180, STK394-160.
I have found most of the parts at newark.com. Also check out this site for some very good info: http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/diy-repair-maintenance/5600-crt-based-rptv-convergence-repairs.html
btw: I am not affiliated in any way.
Make sure that while you have the boards out you look for any bad solder connections. A lot of problems arise or return because of this.
I hope this helps, I have been doing a lot of searching to get this info and hope it helps you. Too many people want to trickle the info and pretend they are giving you gold. A few hobbyists or people that can't afford to pay $300+ for repairs are not going to hurt their business.
Be safe and share knowlege freely!

Is it possible to have only the red tint projector lamp replaced on 61" projector Samsung tv


No. This is a DLP TV. It gets it's color by a color wheel. If color seems to drift across screen or there is a loud-ish whining noise from back of TV that you can here clear across a room, then this color wheel may be bad. They wear out.

The color is messed up. the color is all different colors like red,green and blue.


Your convergence is out of whack.

This can be caused by a failed convergence IC - or can be adjusted using the Convergence settings in the main menu.

Has a shadow on picture. Red, Green is not alligned


You need to set your convergence. Check your owner's manual on how to do it. I'm not sure the exact procedure on that model, but usually you can find it in the setup menu of the tv. What you're trying to do is line the red and the blue up perfectly with the green so that they all blend together to give you one picture.

Red color allignment


The convergence Ics need replaced. In Toshiba, resistors and sometimes a coil needs replaced as well. The convergence/deflection PCB is available, but, the cost of that board is higher than having a servicer come to your home and repair the unit to component level. If you are not familar with this circuit, then call a servicer. Have them replace both ICs not just one. Make sure they are repairing to component level and not replacing the board. Hope this helps.
