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

LT-46151 mitsubishi tv, Green light flashes, no picture, back light is on, screen is blue.

If you have any later digital camera or phone with a compatible connector and cable, try connecting this first.

The set may be looking at the wrong input for signal.

Using your remote, check the setup menu to ensure that your source (cable, receiver, etc.) hasn't been accidentally changed.
Often, a blue screen means 'no signal.'

The green screen suggests a problem or bad Optical engine. Most Sony sets have a self check for error codes---set off: with remote: Display, 5, vol down, power(hit the power button)

How to get in convergence set up mode sony tv kp51ws500


With the set off on the original Sony remote control press:

Display, 5, Vol up and power.

The set should come on with a lot of words and numbers on screen.

With 1 OR 4 you navigate until you see PJE on the screen.

9, and then 6 on the remote will bring up the convergence grid. You will see a grid with a blinking colored cursor--if it is green do nothing--3 will allow you to change to red or blue or green. IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO CHANGE THE SET TO A UNUSED VIDEO INPUT TO MAKE IT EASY TO SEE WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

Select red with the three button and navigate with the 1 or 4 buttons--enter button will allow you to adjust. enter again will allow you to navigate with the 1 or 4 buttons-- you want to get to the middle of the screen and then with 1 or 4 buttons navigate from the center around the screen.

You will find 1 moves adjustment in one direction and 4 in another. Go all around and adjust red first. Then repeat with blue.


When you are done hit Muting and then enter to save adjustments.

NOTE: some of these sets require the convergence be adjusted in the 4X3 which will also adjust in the FULL--if the set has the ZOOM AND WIDE zoom you will have to repeat the adjustment again in one of those modes to adjust Zoom and Wide Zoom.

Also if you have HD connection you may have to adjust it there also--many of these sets require it to be adjusted 3 times in the three modes.

IF convergence will not adjust in any one of the picture modes you have a convergence circuit problem and need to replace the convergence chips etc.

When you are done be sure to hit Muting and then Enter to save adjustments you have made. The word Write will appear on screen in green when you press muting and then in green when you press enter--it means you have saved the adjustments.


If you have questions or need help let me know.

Tv problem

It is possible that for some reason the set got in to a service remote mode and is stuck there. From the C10 1f you state it sound like it could be a old Panasonic but we will need make and model number to go any further

Service mode for convergence

You enter the service menu by using the remote. Press DISPLAY, 5, VOL+, POWER in rapid succession. Once the screen appears, you should notice green letters and numbers at the top of the screen. Your remote acts as a navigation tool to allow you to select and change values. Keys 1 and 4 change the Item, keys 2 and 5 change the Category, and keys 3 and 6 change the Value. MUTE enters the write function, and ENTER executes it. Power exits the service menu. Keep in mind that while in the convergence mode, the keys have different functions, which we'll get to in due time. The service manual will also have this information.
