Question about Toshiba 57H81 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Toshiba 57HX81 57 in. Rear Projection

When the TV is first turned on the picture is distorted and shakes (like a Tv with poor reception). However, as the unit warms up the picture quality becomes more stable and clear and after apx. 5 min. is back to normal until shut down and cooled off or a while.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank You!

Distorted sound

Poor signal or poor connection to the cable probably. Could also be a speaker issue or the audio board on the tv is failing.

Most likely just poor signal or poor connection on the cable.

My TV is showing a double picture

If the picture looks like a 3D one, the problem is a convergence issue. This can be as simple as poor connections at the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder you can probably fix this yourself. Please note that there are potentially dangerous high voltages inside the set even when unplugged.

If you wish to attempt the repair, please update this and I will provide additional details and instructions.
