Question about Toshiba 51H93 51" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Toshiba 51H93 won't turn on **HELP**

I have a 51 in. Toshiba that has been great for 4+ years. My real problem now is that it won't turn. Worked fine on Sat. night, and Sunday night it didn't work. I tried manually using power button, I tried plugging into another wall socket and the reset button didn't work either. Sounds like clicking in the back of tv but nothing happens. What happened? Is the blurry area related to not working? Did something happen when power was shut off?

(Note 1) - Several months ago, I noticed that it was a little blurry at the bottom and center of the screen where scores are displayed.
(Note 2) - I turned power off in my house yesterday by circuit breaker but the TV was off. I have surge protector. All other units on power strip still work.

Thanks for any help.

Good Day, jsilver05;
That's a very good TV, sorry you're having a problem. I have the same TV.
1. The blurring of the pic may be an indication of a convergence problem.
2. The surge protector is not a fail safe device, it will reduce damage to the TV but will not not 100% protect it.
It is possible that by turning the power off may damaged the already weaken convergence circuit, but more then likely some other electronic device failed.Like a voltage regulator, high voltage device,and etc.
At this point I would recommend that you call a factory authorized service dealer and them come out and give you an estimate, or you can e me if want troubleshoot TV if you have digital meter etc.
Good Luck, big IRISH,

Screen had a red an blue blur


Try using the convergence adjustment; listed at the bottom under the picture settings in the menu. If you are unable to focus the TV using its convergence adjustment it's time to call the TV repair guy. Figure about $300.00 USD for your model.

I bought a used Toshiba 51HC85 less than 2 months ago. It has been working fine...until yesterday. I watched the morning news, and when I came home for lunch, it wouldn't come on. The red power light comes...

Sounds like the power supply went south on you.

Its likely that one of the supplied voltages is missing or low coming out of the regulated power supply. Its not something that you'll be able to do yourself. If you call a Toshiba authorized service center, expect to spend $250-400 to resolve this.

Toshiba 51H93 .

check for cracks in the driver circuit, also i believe this maybe on of the models that had a kit that helped from driving the h-output to hard causing it to get hotter then normal.

Horizontal output transistor failure

check b+ comming from p/s. also check for blue flat caps in line with h-output circuit. if blown out the side. remove them from circuit. also might have a HVT goin bad. I believe this is also the model that might have a mod for h-out running too hott that requires adding a resister in the h-drive circuit. also try a heavier duty h-output.
