Question about Toshiba 50A60 50" Rear Projection Television

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?

    I just found out that if I disconnect the cable box and just connect the cable directly to the TV, the picture is fine. Does this indicate that there may be a digital tuner or something that is bad? Removing the cable box means I'm changing from a digital signal to analog right?

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

Toshiba Color TV CF30D50 picture stretched vertically off-screen both at top & bottom - can find no adjustment knob - ??

The vertical sweep output section of your tV has the fault. Replace all the electrolytic capacitors [5 or 6 of them there] at one time. Height to the picture is more than normal is the fault now.

CF3273A Toshiba Vertical height and linearity problem, looking for adjustments

I'm not real sure what year this set is. Most sets 5 years or newer have service menu adjustments. Unless someone went in and adjusted it to get it out of adjustment, adjusting is not going to do much good. I would be looking for bad capacitors in the vertical circuit or possibly the vertical output IC. These IC's tend to run pretty hot anyway so they are usually the problem along with leaky caps.

Toshiba TV (about 7 years old)

You had parts in the vertical deflection circuit failing, most common are the vertical output IC and possibly several capacitors also in the same circuit.

Toshiba TV picture has shifted high

if it cannot be adjusted then there is a problem in tv. your problem is in vertical output circuit Can this be corrected easily ? yes or do I need to start looking for a new TV? I love this one and would like to keep it a while longer. not to look for new will keep it for longer that has a picture that recently shifted upward and now cuts off about 1 inch of the top of the picture. Otherwise it functions properly. your problem is in vertical output circuit please check 1loose contact in vertical output section 2 capacitor defective in v/output. it is a common problem. it is a not a major problem. if you are not tech person get it done by skilled tech. hope this will help.

Vertical output problem

you probably just need to resolder the vertical output IC. It will be mounted on a heat sinc. probably 7-10 pins. Part number may start with "LA" like LA7845 or similar, there are others though. You will probably see the rings around the solder joints on the bottom of the board. Good Luck
