Hello CAPTKING,

Your TV specs as a flat screen and not a projection TV. So this diagnosis is for that of a flat screen CRT. It appears that your filament voltage might be low or the CRT cathodes have excessive oxidation on them. These are the two primary reasons for this type of failure. The secondary reasons would be low video signal, problems with the screen, focus, or control grids, or low anode voltage (which would also cause picture shrinkage). I would suggest that you take the TV to a qualified TV repair shop to have the work done.

Have them run a diagnostic on the CRT with a CRT analyzer and check the CRT voltages with the TV connected to a video analyzer set at the normal configuration for a color picture.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

While watching tv through the cable connection I get just static. but when I swithch to video mode or play a PS3 game, i see the picture just fine. What can I do to fix this.


You may have a bad cable fitting or a bad tuner--you have actually answered your own question:

Way around this issue is to connect a cable box that has the audio/video output jacks on the back to one of the rear AV inputs and BYPASS the tuner completely---watch cable from that input and change channels with the box.

How do i set my Toshiba ct-90157 remote to watch dvd's


Most DVD players are connected to one of the rear audio/video inputs--hook to that input and select it on the TV--then hit play and if connected correctly you will see the movie.

Toshiba 50H81 very dark, blurry picture on all inputs.


check if the problem looks zig zag looking or it its not present in the PIP window. If so this may be an issue with the hypermodule - you can google TV repair Kits to find parts.

PIP


this tv does not have 2 tuners. So you will be unable to get 2 different channels on one screen. I have the same tv. The PIP is only good for watching a dvd/video and tv swapping only.

Toshiba 51H83 51 in. Rear Projection pisture issue


I have a wild guess. I have the same tv and channel 72 is the proper channel to watch tv on. I don't know why, but maybe try channel 72 instead of the usual channel 3. Good luck, maybe a quick fix, maybe not!

Black Screen


Ok, this is probably what has happened, you say that you have played games on your tv, well the thing is with HD and Plasma Screen tv's is that when you play Hi-Res games on them the games backdrop will burn itself into the screen, causing the screen to turn dark and not reveal the correct picture it should. People need to learn about this!!!!! Playing games on HD and Plasma tv's will screw up your resolution!!!
