Question about Toshiba 50H81 50" Rear Projection Television

Squealing noise from lower back and now waviness

For at least a month I've had squealing from the back of the set (which I thought was the power strip until this week) when I turned OFF the tv. Now it sometimes makes the noise when the tv is turned ON and waviness occurs in the video (just in time for the Super Bowl and we're in Patriots territory). Any thoughts? The set is around 5 years old.

    This is a rear-projection tv. I didn't think they used CRT's. Is that wrong?

  • lenupinnh Feb 01, 2008

    Until I get this problem fixed, should I leave the set always on or leave it off as much as possible (before the Super Bowl at least)??

    Thanks coolguy008,

    Sorry for not replying sooner. Eventually I got a local servicer to come out and look at the tv. He found the power supply board was the issue but TOSHIBA was no longer supplying replacement boards! The tv was only about 5 years old at the time. So he being a good trooper decided to replace all of the chips on the board, which he knew would be a lot of work, especially on the part of the board which was heat-damaged. It took him forever, since he was fitting hours of this work in between other jobs. He did not charge nearly enough for all the work and he was not sure it would be successful. Anyway, it did work. But after several months it started making squeeling noises again, and now does it when on and for quite awhile after being turned off. But no obvious distortion of the picture yet.



    When that happens, I'll break down and buy a new set. We just got a Samsung LCD with ClearVu (also 120 Hz) for our bedroom and the picture is so much better it blows my mind, even though both sets are hi-def. Its like going hi-def all over again.

A leaky crt uummm Jaime may be referring to a leakty eht block... flyback assembly... probably a better work to desribe it. You willl have some very high nd dangerous voltages floating aroung in the back of the set. But by inspecting it under dark conditions, you may be able to see if it is leaking... Check for dry solder joints about the flyback transfomer. BE CAREFUL. High voltages are STILL PRESENT after the power if off in these stages. Taking it to an agent would be a better idea if you are at all unfamilier with how to ADMINISTER CPR TO YOUR SELF

Good luck...peace out

HI,
First thing to do is the reset and the whacking test. I give this a 50/50 chance of clearing it up.

ONE: Disconnect the power cord for 4 hours. Then when you power it back up the internal soft codes will automatically reset to factory defaults.

TWO: The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to work reliably.

If these two procedures do nothing then:

    You have to leave it off as much as possible so tha no extra damage is caused to it..

  • Priya darshan Feb 01, 2008

    About the cost of repair.... It will be over $150 to $200

    It is a power supply chirp and is caused by overload when the
    brightness is too high and is drawing too much current. There is either
    something wrong in the video driver amplifier or the settings are too
    high for the set.



    For example, if you are using the set in a well lit room and trying to
    compensate by pushing the brightness settings up too high, that could
    be the cause.



    Other causes could be a shorted out electrolytic capacitor or bad conductors foils on the printed board.



    You may need to have it looked at by an expert who can take a series of
    voltage measurements in determining where the problem is. (There are
    hundreds of parts inside the main power supply section of this set; a
    tester must know what is going on in order to isolate the problem
    specifically. It is not a home remedy.)

If that noise is cause by a leaking CRT, I would call Toshiba and ask them nicely to fix it. A leaking CRT it may be a fire hazzard and they will hopefully willing to do the repair even if the TV set is out of warranty.
Give it a try.

    I was reffering to a coolant liquid leaking from the one of the CRTs and getting close or near the high voltage area, causing the high squealing noise. I have fixed a few of these TV sets with the same defect.

    Just becareful if you are going to be working near the high voltage area.

Thought back brake pads etc needchanging as could feel grinding and was squealing when brakes applied.tyrns out was worn tyre on rim had that changed but can still hear the noise. Its annoying


Hi, your problem is your brake caliper it could be its not coming on properly to lock on to the disc . When they don't lock on like they should you will get a squealing also on some disc brakes you get anti squeal shims fitted. With some lower quality brake pads you may get squealing. I don't know what kind is fitted on your motor brake pads but its worth another look . The worst outlook is the brake pads are worn right down and you are grinding metal to metal ie disc to pad without anything in between.Should get it looked at.

My 92 chevy blazer is making a loud squealing noise sounds like my belts but its not that I've replaced the belt and the tensioner what else could it be?


Bearings in Alternator, water pump, power steering pump or even a squeal from Vacuum line, EGR diaphram or similar. Check power steering fluid level.



Now when you replaced the tensioner, did you notice more pulleys that were just "there" and not connected to anything? These are idler pulleys and are helpful in routing the belt. They have bearings too!

Pleae rate my info.

Dictaphone 2710 noise problem


This squealing noise is caused by the capstan motor. The bearings have dried up and it's metal on metal - causing an awful squealing noise. As soon as you put in a cassette, the motor begins to spin - causing the squealing noise.
