Question about Toshiba 57H83 TV
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.

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.)

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.
