Question about Toshiba 42H83 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Double image - not covergence

Was working fine when I turned off last night. This morning I turned it on and there is a double image on all channels. The second image is shifted extremely to the right and green in color. I thought it might be a covergence issue, but the blue/red convergence adjustment was still in focus.

This phenomenon is observed in all instances, all channels, in the menu adjustment screen, etc.

This is a problem within the convergence circuit. If you can solder you should be able to repair this yourself. Let me know if you wish to attempt the repair and I'll provide additional details and instructions.

Screen appears curved on top and bottom

One or more colors can't be adjusted when when using the convergence menu. Screen is bowed in but stationary.


You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site They have put together a kit for your exact model. The kit inlcludes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc. Everything you need to fix it yourself. Its an easy fix.
