Question about Toshiba 51H83 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

TOSHIBA REAR PROJECTION TV 42H81

I am having a problem with the green, I can not converge the blue and the red to the green. The green curves out of alignment. Any suggestions? Can it be repaired? Is it an easy expensive fix? I pressed the Auto Focus button on the front panel and got "Auto Focus Error" message on the screen.  I was trying to resolve the two horizontal dashed-green lines appearing toward the top of the screen.

    How would the two dashed horizontal lines indicate a convergence problem? I thought convergence meant alignment of the three colors being displayed on the screen in the proper position.
    Are the convergence amp ICs hard to replace or should I have a TV repair guy do the job?

    Your initial statement was "I can not converge the blue and the red to the green. The green curves out of alignment." That would indicate a convergence problem.In answering your second question, yes I would recommend a qualified tv repairman to service your tv. To access the conv. amps the DCU (Digital Convergence Unit) and the Hyper Pcb need to be completely removed and care to the signal pcb should be taken due to double-sided circuits that are very easy to crack or worst break.

I have a Toshiba 42H81 42 in. Rear Projection Television. The picture has shadows like you would watch a 3D image without glasses. I ran the focus on it and the vertical red has noise in it and at the end...


Please do us a favor and rate this solution after reading.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.
