I have a 5 year old Toshiba 43a61 and it has a little red run on it that you can only see on some channels other wise not noticable, i was just wondering what would be needed to be replaced i was told by Steves Tv that it might/probably is the Red Bulb/Lamp thats going in it, they said rough price $250-$350, i'm still debaiting on getting the bulb or not, does anyone know what the anwser to my problem is? if you have any questions for me please ask, the tv starts up quick and runs excellent but just that red run keeps showing in the writting. I have also seen on other peoples problems/solutions that I might just need to replace some chips? I have no clue any help is good Thanks.

    With the original Toshiba remote go into the customer menu and look for Convergence---see if the red convergence is off and not lined up---if the red will not move on some part of the screen you may have a bad convergence IC chip. Let me know what you find SD TECH

You can turn down the brightness in the menu and it might help but the red crt is probably getting weak.

Convergence problem

Your set has a convergence problem which is a common issue.

Take a look at this solution posted earlier on Fixya. It worked for me.

Toshiba 43A61 - No Picture, no sound

If your set all of a sudden won't come on, e.g., the screen is blank, but the LED on the under the screen next to the on/off switch keeps flashing, then there may be an internal fault on the set that needs to be reset.
To force the reset, try this:
  • Unplug the set and wait a few seconds
  • Replug and see if the video returns
Whenever the set senses an internal fault through its monitoring circuitry, it essentially shuts down the set. The flashing LED provides the indication that a fault has been detected. Removing power to the set resets the monitoring circuitry. When plugged back in, the circuitry again does a check of the system. If it finds that there truly is a problem, then the set is shut down and the LED will again flash. In this case, you need to call a service tech. Most of the time, however, the unplug/replug routine is enough to get the set up and running.
