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.

No picture, just went off while watching tv


The pink lines in the set happened when the first time it blew out. It is called a burn in on the inside surface of the picture tubes. Not the fault of the TV repair guy. This is the fault of Toshiba. This set has known to have this happen and you should contact toshiba and request that they replace all three tubes for you at no cost. You should also stop using these repair guys who cannot fix a simple vertical problem. Find out who is authorized for Toshiba in your area and call them. They will know, or should know the problems that happens with this model number and take care of them once and for all. 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
