Question about Toshiba 32A33 32" TV

1 Answer

TV shows colored spot at the bottom left corner

I have a 18 year old Toshiba (don't know it's history as it's at least 2nd hand TV for me), that I noticed has a permanent colored spot at the bottom left corner, similar to what happens when you pass a powerful magnet by the tube. But there are no magnets (the speakers are far enough away) near the TV. Under the TV is a couple pieces of electronic like a Wii and a reciever and DVD player, but nothing that's not supposed to be by a TV. Any idea what this my be and if there is a solution to this?

The degaussing circuit has failed. Usually this circuit kicks in either when you turn the set on or off. This clears up any magnetic interference on the CRT. Toshiba sets usually have a 3 legged thermistor that controls this. I suspect that this part is defective. The parts cost for this is under $10. Check around for a servicer that can replace it for you.

48 inch toshiba with color alingment problem


Hello:

Thanks for this forum.

I have a Toshiba 48" rear projection TV which started to show red and green lines on the left side of the screen and have also started affecting the left-hand focus of the image shown on the screen. I have had this TV for 14 years and had a projection adjustment done once before.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Blue Noise, left side of TV


I have the same problem -- had a Best Buy technician out 4 times so far, replaced 2 parts, adjusted the voltage, etc., but still have the same problem -- looks like there may be no solution other than replacing the TV, which is an expensive proposition considering that mine is about 18 months old.

Brown spot in picture


you might have a couple of dry joints, and you might also have a bad PTC inside that degauses the screen when tv starts up. Please try another good tech for a service. Patrick
