Wavy Lines showing only on with DVD player

I have had a Toshiba 42" Rear Projection since 2004. This past year wavy lines move across the screen, dark images show up more. Last week I had comcast hook up HD Digital Cable and now all it clear, except the Video Tape player and the DVD player, they both still have lines. The PS3 and the new HD cable are working great. Why is this??? Can it be fixed???

This is a common problem i see at the shop it involves what is known as the hypermodule. there is a group of 11 capacitor.. these are surface mounted and very small and difficult to replace. in an ideal situation replaceing the hypermodule would be best.. but if if understand right this is no longer availble. 2nd option is sending the board in and leting a technician replace caps..3 and most difficult is replaceing the caps yourself.. i do not recomend this...i would recomend 1 and 2

Hello..Toshiba 51HC85, 2005 model. Turn on TV and verticle wavy lines appear until TV is warmed up completely. After warm up the picture is great again. Any ideas?


I've had the same problem for about the last 6 months. My workaround which was to leave the tv on 24 7 and just turn off the TWC service box. But now the symptoms are vertical dark lines going all the way across screen. My guess is that it will cost more to fix than worth it. I paid @$2000 for it new in 2004. Technology has gotten better so I may just go out and get a Samsumg for considerably less and be way better off. None of Toshiba's products had done well for me. 2 laptops, 3 tvs, etc. have taught me this.

Check to see if your DVD player is outputing a progressive scan and turn it off if you are using the S-Video cable, it does not support progressive scanning.

A problem like yours is NORMALLY NOT the TV set's fault....it's the Cable.

I'll bet you see thin lines moving across the entire picture...they are slanted like this >> \ \ \ \
That's generally caused by a bad ground on the antenna cable OR it can be the cable box's MODULATOR.

Try using your VIDEO OUTPUT off of your Cable box and see if the wavy lines are still present. If they are the Cable box needs swapped with a good unit.

You can also verify this problem by checking your TV with a DVD player...no lines indicate the TV is fine.

If you have problems with the DVD player's picture, then you must have dried out filtering capacitors on the Video board IN the TV set...

And THAT is not an easy fix if you do see lines with your DVD player.
