Wavy picture and turns itself off after an hour or two.
At first I had a wavy picture and lived with this for several montha. Now I still have the wavy picture and the set turns off after an hour or two. After the set cools for a while, you must reset power at the power strip and the set will turn on.

This is a picture of the DM Board in your TV. The wavy lines are tell tale signs of a failed capacitor. The capacitors are the cylindrical components on the board. One or more of them have failed. There is also a FMT Board with capacitors that could be causing this also so test them all. The DM board alone is 1000 bucks so it would be well worth it to invest in 50 bucks worth of capacitors and change them all out. Your boards would be fresh and good for another 4 years. Your other option is to call a TV repair man and he would come pick up your boards and bring them back to his shop and test out the bad 3 dollar capacitor and swap it out and hand you a bill for 500 bucks. Hope this helps you out. George
this is very common. it is the power supply going bad. it should run at
130 volts dc. but it is now running much lower that this. just enought
for the tv to come on. but not enough to power all the circuits right.
If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem. If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured. You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com
toshibas have a problem with what is known as hypermodule. specifically with small micro caps on this board. technicians can replace these caps. VERY VERY tricky soldering.. idealy u can replace the module itself... trouble is these are not availbe...so u damage the board soldering. out of luck. the board itself is tricky to get to. it is inside metal sheildng. i come across these 1 or 2 times a month in our shop. they are trouble but i do repair them and it works out good. we charge around 450 to replace the eleven 10 microfard caps on this board...
