Question about Toshiba 57H82 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

About two months ago when we first turned on the TV there were wavy lines across the whole picture. When it warmed up they would go away. Now, the lines are there almost all the time and it's getting harder and harder to see the picture. It is blurred in some spots (acros the top of the TV is the worst) and flickers or flashes a lot. A local repairman is not available until July 22nd to even look at it will cost us $100. If there is something else we can try, we can do it ourselves as it is out of warranty!

Hi
You are experiencing a lack of vertical deflection or vertical collapse. Since it will come back the first thing I would suspect is “ring cracks” in the solder joint in the vertical circuit, mainly the vertical IC. These suspect solder joint can be re-soldered and the television set repaired.
I would suggest that you contact a local servicer. If you are repairing the set yourself, be careful, there is always a risk of shock when dealing with electronics.
OR
Check your equipment connections. Disconnect your equipment (VCR, DVD or set-top box) from the TV and reconnect, making sure each connection is in tight.

Hello..Toshiba 51HC85, 2005 model. Turn on TV and verticle wavy lines appear until TV is warmed up completely. After warm up the picture is great again. Any ideas?


I've had the same problem for about the last 6 months. My workaround which was to leave the tv on 24 7 and just turn off the TWC service box. But now the symptoms are vertical dark lines going all the way across screen. My guess is that it will cost more to fix than worth it. I paid @$2000 for it new in 2004. Technology has gotten better so I may just go out and get a Samsumg for considerably less and be way better off. None of Toshiba's products had done well for me. 2 laptops, 3 tvs, etc. have taught me this.

Wavy picture


this is caused by a bad convergence module, and there are probably some dried out electrolytic caps in the circuit as well. i have one in the shop right now that came in with the same problem. if you have it serviced, make sure they replace all of the convergence modules (there are usually 2, but sometimes 3 of them), because if one went bad the other(s) is likely to go out soon as well.
