Question about Toshiba 57H83 TV

1 Answer

Picture is wavy then fine, happens every two minutes

I have a Toshiba 57H83 tv and when you watch it the picture goes wavy. Two minutes later its fine for 5 minutes then back to wavy again. Any suggestions? Also is this a bulb problem, a mirror problem, or just a dusty tv that needs to be cleaned? Thankyou!

This model like several others had problems with what is called a Hyper board inside which processes all signal inside the set.

From a Toshiba service bulletin:

No: PJTV200503 2 Pages Ref: WU032505
Product: Projection TV Date: 3/25/05
Models: 42H81,43HX71, 43H71, 50HX81, 50H71, 50H81, 53HX71, 53H71, 57HX81, 57H81, 61H71, 65HX81 AND 65H81
Product Safety Precautions:
Product Safety Precautions are described in the Toshiba service manual(s) for models covered in this bulletin. All safety precautions and checks shall be complied with before returning the equipment to the customer. Servicers who defeat safety features or fail to perform safety checks may-be liable for any resulting damages and may expose themselves and others to possible injury.
Application: The information contained in this bulletin applies only if you encounter the symptom(s) listed below.
Subject: MVPU13 Hyper Module Repair (23786198 / 23148017X)
Symptom: Multiple Symptoms may be experienced depending on which capacitor is faulty. The primary symptoms are jagged, digitized or pie crusting of the picture. The set may also be described with a poor sync condition.
Corrective Action: Remove the MVUP13 Hyper Module from the TV chassis, remove the top shield and replace the 10uf, 16v capacitors using Part Number 24619040 as shown in Figure 1. It's recommended that all of the capacitors identified in Figure 1 be replaced. (Note: These capacitors are low impedance surface mounted aluminum electrolytic capacitors. Care should be taken to avoid damaging the PCB while replacing these capacitors.)
TOSHIBA AMERICA GOISJSUIVIIER PRODUCTS, L.L.C.


There are several surface mounted capacitors that dry out with age and usually the problem starts out when first turned on and then eventually after on a long enough time the set works--the time will get longer as the problem gets worse.

The board is no longer available and only two options here: locate and replace all the selected caps which is not a do it yourself job or remove the board and send it out for rebuild.

Let me know if you need more info as I have seen dozens of these sets with this kind of problem.

I have wavy lines that go from lower left to upper right and is constant. I have a good picture when I play a dvd. Is this a bulb problem


Hi,
Not a bulb problem.
If its clear on DVD but bad on TV its just a bad or loose cable from the antenna or cable system.
If its on all inputs
Either you have bad convergence ICs or a bad Flex convertor
Hope this solves it for you
thanks

I would suggest to leave your directtv hd/dvr box connected the way It is.
The HD Colorstream 1input on your TV should work just fine.
This TV does not have an HDMI input but you can buy an adapter and connect to DVI/HDCP IN and that might be able to get 1080i video resolution on your TV.

Wavy Screen on Startup


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.

Possible bad solder connections in convergence circuit or vertical deflection circuit. This happens in alot of equipment. After warm up, expansion of joint pulls connections loose. Recommend not running like this, could cause component failure.

Very wavy picture- gets worse when show has fast-cuts


First thing Do not beleive peeps about a bad card. Modules are not used in TV sets any more unles your talking about a complete board change out for a Zenith TV set. Toshiba sets do not have a card or board changeout!.. These peeps are crooks! A Toshiba set is repaired to componet level. It sounds like you may have a convergence problem or a problem inj the power supply involving the filter or couping capacitors. Seek out a pro whos an authorized servicer for Toshiba.

Wavy picture


this is caused by a bad convergence module, and there are probably some dried out electrolytic caps in the circuit as well. i have one in the shop right now that came in with the same problem. if you have it serviced, make sure they replace all of the convergence modules (there are usually 2, but sometimes 3 of them), because if one went bad the other(s) is likely to go out soon as well.
