Question about Toshiba 57H81 57" Rear Projection Television
Most probably the vertical deflection amplifier is failing. The most common part that fails is the vertical output transistor.
The set is too old to find documentation on part numbers and descriptions. Probably the part is no longer available and you will need the assistance of someone who can help you find an equivalent transistor that will do the job.
Of course, without testing we cannot be certain the failure is the output transistor. It could be from something else such as the voltage regulator that feeds the dc line to the vertical section. Could be the vertical synch level that goes too low to trigger the vertical sweep generator.
Sorry if it is getting too complicated but an old set like this can have so very many possible causes. .
Also check for dry soldering , if found resolder.
Hope find this helpful......

Johanna, most projection TV develop convergence circuit problems, this could be the cause of the green waves in the picture. Convergence correction is accomplished by a set(2) of converge power amplifiers, they usually quit due to excessive heat build up. The power cuts off or powers off because either one or both of the amplifiers short out and the protection circuit cuts the power off, some times the protection fuse or fuses blow out or open due to current excess.
I recommend calling a TV repair shop and asking for a quick quote or a guess on what such a repair would run, but I think it would be around the 350 to 450 dollar range.
