    My DVD picture is wavy as a result of the 42h82 video imputs failing. I'm told the tv is next to go. Is the hypermodule the problem?

  • glowbaby Mar 08, 2009

    The problem "used" to go away as the tv got warmer. HD signals from cable box are slightly wavy. Thru my ps3 I can only get 1080i to come in clear, everyother setting (and games not 1080i compatable) are unwatchable because screen is scrambled.

    I have the same problem that began to go away as the unit gets warmer. We replaced the signal processor and it still does it.

The VVPU14 hyper module in that unit is a trickey installation because they have their can tabs soldered to the motherboard and next to each of the solder points on the pad are fine wire traces on top and bottom of the board that can easily be broken or over soldered... Check there first, with a fine magnifier. To answer your question, no, there are no resets or anything else you need to do to after the H/M install. Good Luck. Bill

Picture is distorted on my toshiba 42h83 audio is perfect. started with this problem slowly and was able to correct by switching between tv/video selections. Now picture is distorted all the time.


Distorted in what way WAVEY? there is a problem in the past with 11 very small capacitors that can cause this did it help when it warmed up? The trouble is these capactors can be replaced. but it take someone whe can do very difficult solder called surface mount. i do maybe 2 a month its very labor intensive i am not saying this is the prblem but this set does have that history

The picture is all waves ,I get sound and color but the picture is all lines and waves,what part should I get??


To fix the shaky picture on the toshiba rear projection tv model number 42h83. You need to either replace the 13 capictors on the hyper module or simply replace the hyper module itself. It's cheaper to replace the caps, but you'll need decent soldering skills to do this. You can replace the entire hyper module with less soldering skills, but I believe the module costs about $100, maybe alittle more. You can find the entire fix by googleing "hyper module". Good luck and I hope this helps

I have a toshiba big screen with three bulbs and the picture has wavey lines on the screen. Does this mean tubes are going out?


Most of these Toshiba sets have a "hyper board" that processes all the signal and a lot of them are going bad---lots of surface mounted filter caps on the board dry out and usually it begins that lines in the picture and after several minutes the problem slowly clears up and or goes away---as time goes on it takes longer and longer for it to go away----For most of these sets the only way to repair is remove the board and send it out for rebuild--rebuild of the board and labor may be more then the TV set is worth.

Problems witha toshiba rear projection 2002 50h71 model


sounds like you might have the hypermodule capacitor problem. there is a cuircit board in this set that has 11 very very small capacitors that go bad this is charistic of wavey lines that go away after warming up. and eventally not going away. we repair about 2 of these a month at our shop. we would loved to just replace the board but this board is not availble we cant find it. so we very carefully resolder these caps. with magnifers and twezzers. so i dont recomend anybody attempt this except experience technician., you can easly damage this board and once damaged u cant find the board.
