Toshiba tv model Cinema series HDTV Model# tn55x81

I just got this tv and it has a black bar across the bottom of the screen that keeps popping in and out. I have a friend that said he thinks its the projection lamp? Is that what it is and where can i find a new one?

My thought is that it's something with the closed captioning, fiddle with those settings in the menu, or with the devices like VCR or DVD if you're using something like that as a tuner.

Hi,Iwas watching TV and the screen went black.No lights on,I unplugged and plugged again but anything happened. My TV is a Toshiba Regza model 42RV530U. Can you help me? Thanks


If there was a popping noise of any kind when the tv screen went black there's a high possibility that one of the fuses in the tv popped and there is no power to the tv. It could also just be the outlet itself and try plugging the tv to different working outlets.

Screen display mode


Because the broadcaster is giving you the bars at top and bottom there is nothing you can do except use the different aspect or screen formats that are on your TV. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks....

Widescreen


Unfortunately, a cinema screen is even wider than a widescreen TV. Because of this (in order to keep the original aspect ratio), even with a widescreen TV you still end up with the black bars top and bottom.

Check the aspect ratio of the DVD (Should be printed on the back of the case somewhere).

Unless it says 1.85:1 or 16:9 Anamorphic, you will get the black bars. (Many films on DVD are 2.35:1 or even wider!)

Have you got any different picture modes on your TV. I've got a Toshiba and it has something called 'cinema mode' which does eliminate the bars. Unfortunately it does it by zooming in on the picture slightly, so you loose a bit off the side of the picture and the image does get a little grainier.

Hope this helps.

TN55X81 Rear Projection color separation - convergence problem


You shouldn't need to do a board replacement, all you should need to do is manually tune the convergence.

You can do this with the built-in user tool, but there's also a far more powerful set of options in the service mode. To save you the trouble (I advise doing a LOT of reading before attempting any of this) here's a solid set of various tutorials based on what form of "separation" you have occurring:
