Question about Toshiba Televison & Video

1 Answer

Is it time to forklift this monster out?

I have a Toshiba cinema series HD rear projection where the bottom half of the screen is twisted with the colours are misaligned by a couple of inches. The top half of the screen is clear and the two halves are separated by a knife shape.
Before this happened, we had a blinking red light and the TV wouldn't turn on until we toggled the switch on the power bar.

Is it time to bring in a forklift to remove this? It is about ten years old.

    Thanks for the advice Suraido. I suspected the mirror was the problem. Something similar happened when it was first shipped.
    Well I was looking for a reason to purchase a new LCD TV and I guess I have one!

I'm not completely an expert in projection televisions, but from what i do know about those, it might just be a question of the lenses on the projectors that need to be realigned, or the back mirror plate that has started to phase, warp or just unglue in some cases. So if it is just that then it will cost you a bit less to have it repaired then to buy a new one, but of course if you decide to invest a little more and buyt a new one, i would strongly suggest buying either an LCD TV or a Plasma TV model, as they will cost around the same as a new projection model, if you can find any cause i've heard they are disappearing from the market. Of course though, an LCD model will give a little less warmth and glow to the picture, but will usually cost heaps less for the same screen size, and still deliver something a bit better than the old school HD cathode ray flat screens that came out just before plasma and LCD went in vogue. So it's all a question of how much money you are willing to invest and wether you old TV has sentimental value to you or not, as some people cherish their posessions more than others.

I have a 65 inch toshiba cinema series it's says


if a large rear projection set that just says HD, it likely is HD ready which means it needs a set top box connected to the Colorstream input marked 1080 on the rear of the set--It will only likely be 1080i and not p---owner manual would confirm this.

My Toshiba cinema series HD separates the red & blue color.


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

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 a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

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

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*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
