Toshiba 50A60 vertical picture adjustment

I have a 7 year old 50A60, and recently it looks like the picture is stretched out vertically. You can tell when there are words on the screen that they extend beyond the screen to the left and right.
Is there a vertical adjustment somewhere on the TV or remote?

Try downloading the service manual and go through the calibration excercise. There's also some additional controls behind the right front speaker.

Tv shuts off quickly ( 1-2 seconds)

2blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem

This is a general answer based on error code--problem in vertical circuit then the first thing is to look for ANY signs of Glycol having leaked from one of the picture tubes onto that area of the board.

If you do not know how or what to look for let me know and I will explain.

Vertical circuit deflects picture from middle to top and middle to bottom of screen; if set detects that it shuts set off instantly to prevent a instant BURN MARK from happening on all three tubes this set uses--prevent permanent damage to the screens of the tubes.

My picture is doubled on my toshiba TN50V71 as if there is a shadow behind everything? Please help!

hi, sounds like a convergence issue. try this...
  • Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.

  • Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  • Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  • Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  • Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  • Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  • Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  • Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  • Repeat these steps for all colors.
    good luck!

    I am repairing my sister TV {Toshiba TN61X81}. The original was no picture and with sound. Upon troubleshooting the vertical deflection, ihad move the screen control for all 3 crts to see the horinzontal...

    The easiest way I have found to set the screen controls is to tune into an old black and white show, turn the green up until you see retrace then slowly turn it down until it just dissapears then adjust the blue and red for a true black and white picture.

    Toshiba 50A60 Projection TV - Black Screen

    There is no bulb in that model TV. There are 3 crt type tubes. You'll have to have a TV shop determine the cause. It could be many things like no high voltage present, cathode voltage missing. If the tubes are finished, the cost to replace them is quite high. It is a complicated repair since the tubes have to be properly aimed and converged. The repair cost in this worst case scenario would be greater than buying a flat screen TV with the same screen size.
