Question about Toshiba TZ50V51 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Accidentally changed height somehow while using remote, now "squeezed"

I somehow got a small display of a green "hit" and some numbers on the screen a while ago, and it appeared to shrink or expand the height of the screen. I thought I had it back where it was, but now all I have is a squeezed down version in the middle of the screen. It's a little taller in the middle than the sides, but very odd. Any idea how to get this back to normal. Have tried the "reset" feature, did nothing to change. I can;t figure out how to get that one screen back, so I can expand the heighth again.
-Any ideas

Picture Shortens, Converges, eventually the set shuts off - $50 for Correct Solution


Open the TV amd turn it on in a position you can see the picture, possibly through a mirror. Now gently tap all of the metal heat sinks on the circuit board until you find the one that is sensitive it will have a small chip mounted vertically on it, with probably like 7-10 pins. The number on the chip will most likely be an "LA****" number. Now turn the circuit board (UNPLUG FIRST) over and resolder the pins. This is your problem 99% of the time. Be very careful there is High Voltage inside this TV.
