Question about Toshiba 50H81 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Toshiba 50h81 2001 rear projection hdtv ONLY SHOWS GREEN! PLEASE HELP!

It only displays green picture! All of a sudden it just started doing this. When you click the menu button everything shows up in color, and everything is how it should be. Touch focus shows every color still works.
When you plug anything into any rca input, or cable input, I just get a completely green screen with slight ghosting of what should be playing. Audio still works great.

Removing front and rear panels shows that all bulbs still work. I messed around for about 2 hours making sure every thing is secure and all wires are secure, and they are. I have no answer!

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the 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,Pioneertoshiba 50h81 2001 rear projection hdtv ONLY SHOWS - 2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

It a picture tube issue or a crt driver issue. Not something a layman can repair unless they have the training as well as the equipment to repair solid state TV sets.
