Toshiba 50HDX82 screen flickers at the top

Hi. My 50HDX82 is 5 years old. Just recently, I have had issues with the top part, maybe 6 inches that flickers or has verticla lines. This slightly goes away after awhile. I have Comcast cable and we tried a number of things today. They put new lines in and out. Switched out my amplifier. Tried a new DVR. My issues are primarily with the Fox Soccer Channel. Somewhat with other channels but not too noticeable. HD channels have no issue. I also experience bad issues after powering up the TV late at night. It gets real squiggly lines all across but does fade after 30 minutes and then I have some squiggly lines that remain at the very top 6 inches.

From what I have read here, is this a Hper-moduel issue? How much does that cost?

Could there be another problem?

Faint red blotches visible on light backgrounds on Sony KDF-42WE6

Convergence issues usually present as colors not lining up or a sort of "3D" effect like when you had to wear the green and red glasses. I'm no expert but it sound like you may have a magnetizing issue. You can test this by placing a large, very strong magnet on the "blotchy" area.

Slowly move the magnet in an ever widening circle. Pull the magnet back off the screen about an inch once you have circled the entire blotch but continue to rotate the magnet. Do this for about 5 minutes. If you don't see any change once you may need a stronger magnet or this is not the problem.

I had the same problem with a 6 year old Toshiba 50H13 and I found this tip online somewhere. I used a half dollar sized, rare earth magnet. I noticed a change almost immediately.

Hope this helps

50HDX82 rear projection Flicker/Fuzzy and Vertical Purple Lines

The hyper module itself is not an expensive repair about $70 to $100.00 dollars. The tech will simply be replacing about a dozen 16v/10mf smd caps and re-installing it on the signal board. But that doesn't address what he has to do to get to it and get the hyper board off and back on the signal board and that is a bit time consuming.
What I would suggest is to call around to the various shops and ask what they charge for the hyper module repair and see if you can get an off the cuff estimate for around $250.00 dollars.
If you need help finding some reputable shops try for help in finding some of the best technicians available.

First remove the speaker grill. Then removed the control package via two screws. This should expose the screws that hold the front mask on. You can then slide the mask up and inch or so then pull it forward. Hope this helps.
