Is there a firmware update for my Toshiba 62MX196 that allows the use of a multi-stream cable card?


Yes there is. It requires an authorized Toshiba Technician to install the firmware update. The Firmware Upgrade "Part Number" is 2006REG270. Toshiba charges the Service repair firm $67.24 for the Smart Disk Flash Memory card. The memory card requires the service firm to also purchase an additional "adaptor" form Toshiba. The Service firm charged me an additional Sevice Call and hour of the technicians time which came to an additional $208 or so. So for $275 you can get the Multistream Cable Card to work. Now I have to contend with the goofball cable company to quit telling me that they can't authorize the cable card to permit premimum channels without me either using their cable box or a TIVO box... It's amazing how many of these folks connected with this whole industry don't understand (or is it don't want to understand???) how these cable cards work. Good luck! It took me 2 months of waiting on Toshiba to deliver the "parts". Toshiba sucks. They provide almost zero customer service.

Do lamps have adjustment? I have a yellow and blue rainbow effect along bottom of screen. I am pretty handy and well equipped.


This would be a convergence adjustment. Check your user menu on the tv. Look for an item under video settings for a something called "Converge" or "Convergence". See if you can adjust it enough to fix the problem. If not, you may need to access the service menu and adjust from there.

How do i unlock the key--- display on my Provision television that is operated by a beko 12.1 remote control.I also need the service code for some Geometric adjustment.


Service Menu Access Procedure To access the service menu, press and hold the handset sound mute button whilst pressing the TV's front panel 'Menu' button (under the front panel cover on the TV). The up/down channel buttons on the handset step through the options and the left/right buttons change the data values. Turn the TV off to get out of service mode and DO NOT touch any other handset buttons whilst in service mode. Service menu access is also similar for many other Toshiba large-screen TV's so this procedure may work on other Toshiba TV's - even those sold outside the UK.

Maybe this list can help you, click here for a list of each widescreen Toshiba TV Service Menu adjustment with details on the purpose of each.

The factory settings of each service menu option will be entirely different on every TV manufactured, due to component, tube and scan coil tolerances, so don't under any circumstances adjust your TV's settings to my factory default settings or your TV's picture will probably look awful! The factory settings are provided out of interest - the useful part of this document is actually the definition of each service menu option. You will see that some geometry settings are duplicated for each screen mode such as 'Cinema' and 'Subtitle'. This could, for example, help resolve a geometry problem that's present just in one screen mode.

I hope help you with this.

Toshiba 42" suddenly has blue arc projecting through lower half of screen. Confirmed it was the blue tube by removing the projector lens and looking at the direct image.  Is this a bad tube or something...


Hello,

This is not a bad tube it is a convergence problem. Your convergence amplifiers are malfunctioning, and need to be replaced. If you have a background in electronics, you can remove the back of the TV locate the Convergence ICs (using the schematic or service manual) and the order the parts you will need which are the two convergence ICs and the biasing resistors (you will see these on the schematic). To remove them unsolder the pins, unscrew the screws holding them on the heat sink and remove them carefully, if they stick use a solvent to break down the adhesion of the heat sink paste. Once loose, take them out and then unsolder the biasing resistors and replace them with the ones you ordered along with the ICs.

To install the new ICs put heat sink paste on the back of the ICs and insert the pins into the proper holes in the circuit board. Screw the screws back in securely, and solder the connections back.

After doing this you will need to perform a convergence adjustment, using the cross hair adjustment screen (access this from your TV menu). and the you will need to do an advance adjustment using the crosshatch pattern (also accessed from your TV menu).

Once these are done use you service manual to follow the procedures on locking the adjustments into the TVs memory.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83,

Convergence Issue...Toshiba TheaterVision HD 55H70


You probaly should be able to access the controls for that through the service menue. I dont have that info. However you can get a service manual for 10.99 at the following link, and if you purchase one they will mail it to you, unless you go back to the site and click on the contact them link and request that it be emailed to you. they also offer free support with the purchase of a manual so they can help you diagnose your set. I am one of their techs also. Heres the Link.
