Question about Toshiba 50HX81 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Repairman for your TV yet?

You mentioned that you were having the same problem as we are with our Toshiba TV having a scrambles picture until it warms up. I was just wondering if you had a repairman out to look at it yet? We're planning to sell the TV in a yard sell in a couple of weeks and would like to be able to tell any potential buyers if the problem can be fixed and appx. cost.

Actually I found quite a bit of info regarding the problem and confirming that it has to be the caps on the hyperboard as hdtvman was mentionning.
I've bought the caps for less then $3, and will give a try at replacing them probably next weekend. I have nothing to loose as it's getting worse day by day now. If I screw up I can alway order the hyperboard from PTS...

a PROBLEM likely to be either in the optical light engine or a separate digital board in the set---engine is more likely and a very expensive part not to mention labor.

HD channel picture is clear, but regular digital picture scramble

o.k. check all your connections
if you have a newer house check to see if you have a main hub in a closet somewhere and check all connections. Check your hd receiver and you may be able to chage the DPI the receiver receives in.

I have this problem on some of my non HD channels, also. So much for going digital. I get fuzz and pixel problems "from time to time", but, if it is really bad and consistent your should call your service provider.

Things to ask also ? are you using cable or satellite.

If satellite T.V. there are other reasons you could be experiencing problems.

hope this helps!

- Picture scrambled when set is

The TV has a bad board. It's called the Hyper board. It has been discontinued by Toshiba years ago so it is not an option to replace it. There are some TV repair shops that can rebuild this board by replacing most or all of the capacitors in it. You may want to call your local shop and see if they can do.

Scrambled picture

I have the same problem here as well, except that it has been happening so long that now it doesn't get completely clear. The picture was great at one time :-(

TV picture scrambled and getting worse

This can be a fault in the tuner, IF, or primary part of the video processing. With age and use some of the parts, and especialy capacitors, in these sets can become thermo sensitive and unstable.

To service these types of faults can be very time consuming. On top of this would be the cost of the parts.

Considering the age and type of set that you have, I would suggest that it is time to be looking for a new set.
