Hello Christinegun:

No your tubes are not going out, Seems your having a horizonal deflection problem, low High voltage, One or maybe two of your HV scan Capacitors are leaky, have a technician check them for discoloration and swelling. If any are have them replaced. Also have him measure the HV at each picture tube to make sure no perticular tube is causing more load then need on the horizontal circuit and check all soldering around the flyback transformer.

Please leave comment if this helps or answers your problem..

Black lines in tv

Most likely there are electrolytic capacitors in the power supply, video path, and scan amplifiers that are starting to fail from age. This is common in many of these sets. In consideration of the age of the set, this may not be worth having it serviced.

Toshiba 50A60 Projection TV - Black Screen

There is no bulb in that model TV. There are 3 crt type tubes. You'll have to have a TV shop determine the cause. It could be many things like no high voltage present, cathode voltage missing. If the tubes are finished, the cost to replace them is quite high. It is a complicated repair since the tubes have to be properly aimed and converged. The repair cost in this worst case scenario would be greater than buying a flat screen TV with the same screen size.

Toshiba 57" HDTV no red in picture

I had the 65" version of that TV. Loved it, unfortunately it went bad as well. It sounds like the red tube went bad. The tube itself might sell for $400 plus. The installation will take several hours with the alignments which will need to be done. Then after all that you will start to have to worry about the other tubes starting to deteriorate. If there is any red in the picture then the tube is most likely the problem. At tat point I would say buy a new TV. The best bang for the buck if you want size and have the space for it would be the new Samsung or Mitsubishi DLP's. I just installed one at customers house. The 60" Mitsubishi is 1400 at Best Buy Good Luck Rob

Toshiba 50H72 rear projection TV. NO Video

Bad caps and solder connections, especially in around the 9v regulator just about center of the defection circuit... Not a terribly expensive job and certainly worth the repair if the cabinet is in good condition...
