Question about Toshiba TP55H60 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blue shadows/ghosts All of a sudden this afternoon when I turned on the TV I have a large blue bubble at the bottom of the screen and a shadow/ghost of yellow/blue on the pictures. The TV was completely normal this morning. I have tried to fix convergence but cannot get to line up normally. I have also tried the touch focus and it keeps coming back with an error. The red and green lines look fine during touch focus but the blue horizontal and vertical lines are wavy. I cannot afford to get a new TV right now and need to know if this may be an easy fix that my husband can take care of. He is very handy with just about everything. Thanks!!

    Yes, the Tv is about 7-8 years old now. I will definitely call a pro for it. Thanks so much!!

    Ok, I had a pro come out and took the TV. They told me that it is a convergence problem and that 2 boards need to be replaced and sautered. They told me it would be about $600-$650 for this and they took the TV and will redeliver. Said it would take 1 week to 10 days.



    I am looking here at others that have had this problem and I am wondering if the price they quoted is way out of wack? I got their number from the Toshiba website as a preferred workman. The people that I got from here never returned my phone call. :(

How old is the tv ??
if this tv is older than 5 years it may need to refill the liquid on the proyection bulbs and/or could have contaminats in the fluid causing the ghost and to fix that you will need a professional person to do it

If the ghosting is like a 3D effect its your convergence ICs , but if its like a blue Halo around objects that usually means your CRT coolant has congealed and will need replacement. The blue is the first tube to congeal for some reason, followed by green. Red seems to be not quite as prone to this. It is a normal occurrence n sets about 4 years old to need the coolant changed.
