It can be a couple things. Something bad on the power board. Or the vertical output circuit. How long ago did you purchase the television. Your best course of action is to have it serviced. If you need any information or other assistance let me know. Thanks, Lee
I gather from your post that wavy can mean two possible things as the TV comes on, you see the picture flow like ocean waves? In this case you may have 60Hz hum modulating with the picture, this is actually unlikely these days, but I have heard it happens sometimes.
The other thing it could be is light horizontal tearing. This happens when the horizontal frequency is too high or too low. You are not going to like my solution because I feel that for problems like this the set must be analyzed not just subjected to "shotgun troubleshooting", so here I go, Take the TV to a repair shop.
Its two maybe three issues that your having trouble with. First thing is the convergence. That problem could be a cold solder connection on the convergence IC's or the Ic's have a thermal problem, as after they heat up they go bad. The second is the popping. This could be an issue with the rear channel Audio output Ic intermittanly shorting and shutting down the set, or it could be a bad ground around the picture tubes, or a leaky hi voltage block, or a second anode lead going to the picture tubes could be split. The other common problem with this set is the STR#### regulator IC in the power supply. Now unless your a tech you shouldnt attempt any of these repairs as there is very high voltage in this set and could cause great harm to you. seek the help of an authorized repair shop for Toshiba.
