Question about Toshiba 57H82 57" Rear Projection Television
Toshiba 57H82 convergence problems. TouchFocus did not correct problem, got "TouchFocus Error". Manual adjustment of convergence did not work either. I did not see an option to select "Green", only "Red" and "Blue". Blue color is bowed and the horizontal convergence line is split and is oscillating. Is this a repair I can do myself? If so, how?
See my solution <http://www.fixya.com/support/t2795690-convergence_off_blue_line_only_vertical>.
You need to get to the service menu--it's been 4 years so go to AVSforum.com to turn off the different guns and get the better pattern.
At your risk: To get into Service mode:
1. Turn your TV on. 2. For X81 or earlier series: Press MUTE on your remote and release. 2. For H80/H81/HX81 series: Press MUTE on your remote and release two times ("Mute" on-screen) 3. Press down MUTE on your remote again and hold. While holding, press the MENU button on your TV set's front panel. 4. Release both buttons. 5. An "S" should appear on your screen. Press MENU again on your TV. 6. Now you're in service mode. Channel Up/Dn - Scrolls through Parameters and Volume Up/Dn - Changes Parameter Value
To get into convergence mode:
Get into Service mode, then Hit '7' to bring up the convergence grid. Buttons 100, 0, and ENT control which gun you want to turn off (if you want to align the red to the green without seeing the blue gun and other variations). 2=up, 8=down, 4=left, 6=right, 3=change gun to converge, 5=converge that point. To exit convergence mode you press 7 once and your screen should look like it's imploding then return to normal and then you press 7 to get back into regular service mode.
I have more info found on the board. -Ken
