Toshiba theaterview lines don't line up

Hi--we recently acquired a Toshiba Theaterview at an estate sale. Model #TP55C80, Chassis 9393 Nove. 93. It worked great for about a month until recently. The line, when in "test" don't line up thereby the picture quality is awful. The yellow line has a bend at the top and bottom when you have it in "test" mode--we've tried lining them up and they won't. Someone told us the convergence may be bad on it--otherwise the picture is great as is the color. I found a Toshiba site where we can purchase parts is this something we can do ourselves as we've heard it can cost upwards of $500 to get this fixed and not sure if it is worth it. THANKS

Have an older Toshiba theaterview TV, when turn on, we have no picture, no sound, just black screen and blinking red light that just continuously blinks.

Theaterview suggests a rear projection--in that case it most likely is in the convergence circuit--unsolder chips (convergence) and see if set turns on.

Some of their regular TV sets (picture tube) if the light is just blinking means the same thing=shutdown because of a short/problem but a model number would tell me which you have.

Picture goes out when floor jars the TV.

Check for bad solder connections around where the tuner attaches to the chassis. Look for cracks with a magnifying glass solder should appear shiny with no circular cracks.

You need to replace the convergence IC`s and check for any bad fuses and burned resistors near the chips. The convergence chips are mounted to the big aluminum heat sinks.
