Question about Toshiba 65HDX82 65" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Distorted Picture Hi my Toshiba 65HDX82 picture is distorted and shaky it started off about three months ago and would clear up after about 10-15 minutes and that turned into about 20-30 now it's completely distorted and never clears up. My tv has PIP and it divides the tv in half and the left side is distorted like viewing full screen while the right side is picture perfect so for the last month I have been watching tv in PIP mode with the left side covered. The color is great too. I don't have a local repair guy and the closest service guy is about 70 miles away and I really can't afford to throw away money on a long distance service call only to find out my tv is junk. Do you think it's repairable and if so any ideas to what maybe causing this. Again It's a 2002 Toshiba 65HDX82 projection wide screen tv. Thank you for taking the time to read this problem. Sincerely David Feltner

    Hi. We recently bought a Toshiba 57H83 rear projection from my in-laws. They rarely watched it. It's 3 years old. We transported it to our house. Had it for about 2 weeks and it started doing this thing where it suddenly goes from perfect picture to a scrambled mess with horizontal lines running through the picture. At first it did it only for a few minutes, then would self-correct. It's been doing it for about a week and has gotten worse. It does it more frequently and takes longer to correct itself. The closest repair center is over 70 miles. We don't want to sink the time and effort into taking it to a dealer if it's going to be so expensive to fix. Any help out there??? Thanks so much

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit from the link below.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on - TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from www.TvRepairKits.com

I have a Toshiba Model 42H82 With distorted & shaky Picture


If its shaky, zig zag, or torn looking, etc your hyper module has gone out. You can get the repair parts and instructions on www.TvRepairKits.com

If it just looks 3D or wavy...and is not moving around...its your convergence that has gone out.

I get three horizontal lines and picture is distorted on start up. Lasts for about 15 minutes and clears itself up. Any idea of what needs to be repaired?


Hi, How are the lines positioned? are they equally spaced creating four equal sections or are they close to each other?

Picture is distorted on my toshiba 42h83 audio is perfect. started with this problem slowly and was able to correct by switching between tv/video selections. Now picture is distorted all the time.


Distorted in what way WAVEY? there is a problem in the past with 11 very small capacitors that can cause this did it help when it warmed up? The trouble is these capactors can be replaced. but it take someone whe can do very difficult solder called surface mount. i do maybe 2 a month its very labor intensive i am not saying this is the prblem but this set does have that history
