This is a common problem. Your convergence has gone out.

Common symptoms are...

1) 3D Video
2) Warped Video
3) Convergence menu does not adjust the red or blue correctly. 4) TV Chirps

You said it is Distorting, If the distortion looks "3d" or separate red or green or blue images. You may have a bad solder connection on the convergence ic's they are located on a large heat sink the part number on the ic will begin with STK392- ??? there will be two of them and the pins will need re-soldered, or the part will have to be replaced. If you even just solder the pins it is a good idea to check and see if the heat sink compound has hardened it is a white grease between the heat sink and the component, if this has turned hard it needs replaced. If soldering does not fix the problem these ic's could still be bad, and need changed, but before i would do this i would tap on the chassis with the but of my screwdriver to see if the picture flickers. This being done with the set on and many dangerous voltages present. Soldering the chassis of course with the set unplugged.

I don't recommend doing this repair yourself because of the dangers involved with electrical shock even with the tv unplugged.
If you called a serviceman the repair might run around $300.00.

Picture often flickers and image distorts every few minutes


The trouble is most likely in the Video processor. If the trouble looks like its tearing the video only from side to side it may be the line doubler circuit. Some of these boards are no longer available but a good TV tech may be able to componnent level repair it for you.

Screen is fine when I first turn on TV, then goes black


Sounds like you dlp lamp is going out. That's a pretty old TV and if you are still running on the stock lamp this is exactly the type of thing that will happen. The lamp model for this particular tv is the ty-la1001. You can find that over here:

The picture on my 2 yr old Toshiba 42hm66 DLP tv starts flickering and with alot of rainbow looking distortion after an hour of veiwing. I replaced the lamp, but it sill has the probelm. Any idea what...


I hope this helps you but you might wanna look into some other posts too cause it goes farther then the lamps and color wheels. Basically it's a bad product and the consumer should be fixing it. But your problem seems to be the color wheel. Or just a good cleaning. We replaced the lamb in ours and still had a color problem. We're gonna do an exstensive cleaning and dusting of our unit and if it don't work. We're going straight to the manufactor. This is enough with this product! It's costly to repair and still don't have the quality picture it should. It's more then a simple fix and too costly for ppl to just fix and move on. For how old these products are this all should not be happening.

TV Flickers up and down and screen is shifted to the right w/ red color dominating the screen.


Hi
The most likely problem is the auto focus module.
A costly repair.
If you are going to fix it ask for a rebuilt one.
