Question about Toshiba 42H81 42" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

42 inch, 7 year old Toshiba television

Recently our tv has started to get a wavy picture and then it will turn off. the power button on the front will blink on and off, and the only way to get the tv back on is to unplug it. once plugged back in it will be fine until it feels like doing it again. sometimes right away, sometimes hours. any ideas?

Well im sorry if this doesn't really help much, **im only 16 after all** but your tv is a projection tv so if im right it might be that one of the bulbs in it is wearing out or if not the housing for the bulb might me wearing out

Hope that helps a little ^-^

You likely have a bad hyper board.  As time goes on the lenght of time it takes to get a clear picture will increase and eventually the picture will never clear up untill the part is either repaired or replaced.

Very wavy picture- gets worse when show has fast-cuts


First thing Do not beleive peeps about a bad card. Modules are not used in TV sets any more unles your talking about a complete board change out for a Zenith TV set. Toshiba sets do not have a card or board changeout!.. These peeps are crooks! A Toshiba set is repaired to componet level. It sounds like you may have a convergence problem or a problem inj the power supply involving the filter or couping capacitors. Seek out a pro whos an authorized servicer for Toshiba.

Wavy picture


this is caused by a bad convergence module, and there are probably some dried out electrolytic caps in the circuit as well. i have one in the shop right now that came in with the same problem. if you have it serviced, make sure they replace all of the convergence modules (there are usually 2, but sometimes 3 of them), because if one went bad the other(s) is likely to go out soon as well.
