Question about Toshiba 65H84 65" Rear Projection HDTV
Switched to convergence screen no vertical lines - tried to switch to HDMI got momentary image then green screen -

SOURCE: Green Convergence problem
O.K. This is a CRT Projection TV see http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/televisions/product.asp?model=50H82 The Manual is available from http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/tacpassets-images/models/50H82/docs/50H82_om_e.pdf , and this describes the Manual Convergence process, I doubt this will help, but it's step #1. The problem you are describing sound to me like a deflection problem. The electron beam in the green projection 'tube' (a super bright CRT) is probably not being controlled correctly. This can be caused by several things, from least likely to most :) I do not recommend that someone untrained in electronics attempt to service a CRT based television due to the potential for extreme shock or electrocution. That caveat said, here are the possibilities. #1 Physical Trauma: The TV has been shifted moved or bumped hard, and one or more of the fixed permanent magnets used to help convergence has come loose, or the CRT projection tube was damaged. I don't think these TVs use convergence magnets anymore, but it's possible. The green CRT tube failing would be more likely if all four corners were affected, but I've seen a failing CRT affect a single corner/edge before. I believe that this model has projection tubes that are separate from the colored filters, so swapping the tubes around may be possible. I do not have a service manual for this set, and this may be a hazardous operation due to high voltages. #2 Stray magnetic field: Someone dropped a magnet into the TV, and it landed close enough to the green tube to effect it only, or perhaps some other piece of equipment is effecting JUST the Green CRT (clock radio, speaker, badly designed wall wart, etc.). Removing the offending magnetic field may cure the problem. Perhaps the offending magnetic field has been removed, but it's presence is still felt. Try using the degauss function built into the TV set (I can't find one in the manual, but it may be present). You may want to try using a degaussing coil, and see if that helps the problem. Just be careful not to get the coil too close to the base of the projector tubes. #3 Deflection drive electronics: A CRT works by using an electron beam to excite fluorescent compounds on the face of the CRT. To move the electron beam about, a process called deflection is employed. Magnetic coils (the choke) are used to steer the electron beam up, down, left or right. These coils are driven by transistors, and as one fails, you will get an image that starts collapsing in the affected section. On a standard CRT TV, that would mean the entire image is affected, but a CRT projection display uses separate red, green, and blue CRT projection tubes to build the image, so you have three times the deflection, three times the possible transistor failures, and in your case, the odd result of just the green part of the image displaying incorrectly. This problem will probably require a service call, and a electronic board swap, but the problem could be the choke (the magnetic coils) on the green CRT projection tube. Swapping the green tube for another tube could prove if it's the tube or if the deflection electronics that are going out. Again, my feeling is that this is a deflection issue requiring a board swap (I doubt anyone actually does component level repair anymore) Sorry, I don't have a better answer, peace. Paul.

If the blue colors will not line up, and the blue appears to sag inward from one or more sides, then you can bet that one of your convergence IC's has either cracked loose or burned out. The IC should be resoldered or replaced and the convergence realigned by someone experienced with projection TV convergence circuits.

My experience has been that the resistors have fallen out of range. These aren't expensive and neither are the caps that surround this area. If you're pulling the board out to change the resistors, might as well change the caps, too. If you're strapped for cash, but have a multi-meter, you can test the caps and the resistors after they've been taken out of circuit to save a little green. Let me know if you need any help testing them; I'd be glad to help.

This a common problem in many of the Toshiba sets----set has a "HYPER" circuit board that processes all the signal for the set--surface mounted caps all start to dry out--always starts out where it will have the problem and then when on for a while it gets better and goes away--eventually when enough of the caps are gone--it never gets better.
Board is now only available by removing it and sending it out for rebuild/repair---company doining this is Pts electronics--part number is:
23148103Cost is about 180 dollars plus shipping and this may mean considering the labor to get the board out that the set is not worth repairing.
Sorry to give you bad news but I am certain this is what your trouble is.
I do this here for free so if this information helped you to decide what to do--take a minute and give me a vote here.
If you have questions or need advice reply to this posting here.

The convergence ICs and the six 1.8 ohm 1watt resistors need to be replaced. You can get the convergence repair kit for your model at www.tvrepairworld.com which has the Two Convergence ICs and the six resistors plus the CD with instructions on how to do the repair.
