Question about Toshiba TW56X81 56" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Wobbly lines on my Toshiba TW56X81

I saw your post and thought I'd check with you before I went to a local repair man. We got this tv from a friend who upgraded to a LCD Projector TV. This tv has "wobbly" lines across the whole screen (they appear to be vertical lines). It seems to lessen as the tv is on longer, but still always has some. If you have any ideas or direction, please email me at jamie.witten@wamu.net.

thank you,

Jamie

This sounds like a input problem. The source of the signal may not be well matched to the expected input spec. To test, see if the "SETUP" menu items are clear. If so it is something to do with a cable, connector, or configuration of the source.

Toshiba TW56X81 power LED blinking ,tv won't turn on


Try unplugging and waiting about 2 min. Then retry. There is a self protection circuit which is what is stopping the unit from coming on, but it can be triggered by many things. [Units this old are famous for the capacitors (electrolyte dries out and then they blow), but that is just the most common problem. I would look the capacitors over and see if they give any indication of being "blown" (discoloring, etc.) and replace them if they do.

42" toshiba tv


Sorry but you are out of luck, the unit will need repair. It could come back to life in any moment but most often is related to this:

My previous post here

I have seen a faulty board work perfectly until the power is removed (intentionally or accidentally) an applied again or reset via the power button for 5 seconds. This will effectively disable the +12 VDC Power oscillator rendering the TV unusable.

good luck,

Hi

DC jack replacement is easy however requires a bit care since its mounted on the mainboard. Desolder the old DC jack. Solder the new one firmly. Dont keep the soldering iron too long on the PCB as it will damage the lines and will deform the DC Jack. You can get DC jack very low cos from local repair stores or you can order from Toshiba parts depot (800-524-8338)
Please post your question if you need further assistance.
Good Luck

Toshiba TW56X81 Convergence issues


I retired from the TV repair business because if you are not an authorized repair service center most manufacturers will not even talk to you. If you are electronically inclined you can repair this tv. your problem is a bad convergence ic. you need to be able to locate it and replace it. it probably has about 15 or 18 legs that need to be unsoldered and a new replacement re-installed
