Question about Toshiba 50H72 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I think the color tube is shot

I have half a screen top part is black and bottom part is picture with yellow red and blue line across the middle section of the tv. Seems like the tube is shot. I have looked online for this part and if I am correct it is about $200,00 plus a service call. I have only had this tv for 5 years... I thought I would have had it longer than this before repair... Anything I can do without calling in repair???

On a white picture my screen has a yellow color to it and at times mill have a blue blur on the bottom left corner of the screen. also i get blue dots in the middle on the screen.

Hello: Seems like you have a picture tube problem. The yellow color is from a weak green crt. I suggest replacing the Red and Green Crt's in this model. They are nortoriuos for Failure especially the Red. The cost for these tube vary from 110.00ea to 150.00each. I don't know if you want to spend that type of money on this set, as i Know this peticular set has an expectional picture quailty, my experience with replacing sony picture tubes, is to replace all three tubes, as the new ones will show brighter. So replacing the red and green crt's and not the blue is not recommened. But thats up to you, you might not notice the color difference yourself. You also have the option of sending the Crt's for refurbished ones or having the originals rebuilt by a company in Calif, called VDC, Video display Corp. They sell and refurbish sony CRTs. This route is much cheaper, the only problem is having the crt's taken out and sent for repair. The other option is to think about purchasing a new set. As this repair price could reach into hundreds of dollars, Around $600 to $700 for parts and Labor..

Red/Orange horizontal lines

it could be that the tv convergence circuit is going bad. One shure way of finding out is to go to the tv feature menu(picture,audio etc.) and select the customer convergence setting, you should get a cross hair pattern(cross in middle of screen). that cross should be white and by aligning the red or blue colors they should move left, right, up or down

Red line across top/blue line across bottom of screen

Adjust your convergence. Under menu I think its the last choice at the bottom of settings or picture menu

Remove back see if you can get to tubes top lenses clean all 3 from dirt/dust/ After cleaning off lenses there is a black control box has 3 controls on top 3 on bottom these are to adjust each tube R-G-B Tubes screen/ focus adjust one tube at a time--- Like to adjust red turn g,b.screen drive off turn red up adjust focus to a clear picture ,then green same and blue If you turn screen up to much it will either shut off or you will see Drive lines adjust back down.OK after doing this turn color off in menu adjust all 3 screen controls untill you have Black and white picture try to adjust as close as you can to get bl/wt picture when that is done now turn color on and you should have alot better picture.

Colors off. blue and yellow not lined up

try to set the convergance if you cant you can adjust the color tubes from inside the tv but have to be very careful to do this. There is actually only 3 colors in the tv red, blue green so I would say your blue and green need lined up
