Question about Toshiba 27AF45 27" TV

1 Answer

Picture settings messed up!

I moved the television from my bedroom to the living room. All of a sudden all of my picture settings are messed up!
First: My picture, in standby video mode, flickers. The "black" is flickering!
Second: I get a doubling with on screen type, I can not correct it with sharpness.
Third: I can't set my tv to a THX optimizer, because the brightness won't stabalize, see "First" above.
Last:The tv was not on since the day before when I moved it, I didn't drop it or tilt it for that matter either. It works this way with either satellite dish hooked up to it through coax or my dvd player to it with the S-video.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Picture settings messed up!

Loose cable or wrong setting. Channel, input type, etc. Also. make sure the audio isn't plugged into the video input [either end]

Screen looks like a picture negative, PIP works fine, sound fine

Sony's have dual tuning systems to allow for the separate PIP channel. The common problem on the Sony's is the circuit board and tuning module connections go bad. It is likely that the connections on the board or module were already in the decayed process and moving it just accelerated the issues that were inevitable.

The quick fix is to swap the PIP over to the main picture or to bus the antennae signal to the antennae B terminal thus bypassing the bad tuner module.

The recommended fix action is to have someone with soldering skills to remove the chassis, and locate all the cold and cracked solder joints, especially near the tuning modules. If this does not take care of the problem, the tuning modules will need to be removed for re-soldering on the actual tuner modules.

If none of the above works, then you can always use the audio/video outputs of a cable box or vcr to the a/v jacks of the tv, thus bypassing both tuners in the tv.

Tilted picture

You must be placing the TV near something Magnetic, Speakers, etc. This would account for the green in the corners. The tilted picture is most likely the yoke in the set has moved during rough handling. The first issue can be fixed with a degausssing coil, the second requires a technician to manually realign the yoke assebly and perform a convergence on the set.

No Picture on AV

It was not a problem with the TV. I needed to purchase Y cables so I could run my audio to both the HDTV and the Leap Frog unit for Magnavox. Then just plug the yellow cable directly into the back of the reciever. Viola!

RCA television suddenly has problems with cable reception

You have a bad ground connection somewhere. Either the cable has a break in the ground side or there is a connection problem elsewhere. Try with another cable if possible.

Pink coloration framing my picture

Are there any speakers close to the TV? Move them, as the magnets in them are causing the problem.

If the TV has a 'degaussing' feature, select that.

Try turning off at the power point, waiting for a minute and turning back on... you may have to do this a few times.

Failing all the above, a tech can use a degaussing wand to restore it.
