Sounds like it's a high voltage problem. The flyback is putting out low voltage. Common problem. Flyback is ready to burn out. Most flybacks are 30 to 100 bucks.

The problem is probably a faulty IC (chip) or capacitor on tv main board.
Only simple things you can do at home are hard reset and whacking test.
To do hard reset leave the power cord unplugged for two hours; then power up again. This will drain power from tv and will restore all eproms inside the set to factory defaults.
to do whacking test. Just bang (not too hard) your fist on the top, back, sides, etc., to see if you can restore the picture, this can fix bad connectors etc.


If reset and the whacking doesn't help, then the problem is in some faulty or burnt component on main pcb inside tv. Often the jungle IC chip. The jungle IC handles all the video, color and control signals to the projection tubes. It is quite expensive to replace. In this case you will need a tech to test and diagnose the exact failure so that the right outboard parts are replaced at the same time.

The set should be nearly 10 years of age; so, it should have a few years of life left in it, as average life for a Toshiba is around 15 years . So, if you have to spend $300 to fix it and you get another 5 years of life or so out of it, it may be worth repairing, as the only other option is buying a new TV.

My JVC model AV-20F476 has a black-out box that covers most of the bottom half of the screen.


Go into menu and under CLOSED CAPTIONS look to see if TEXT is engaged---if it is set to text 1 turn it off or to text 2,3,4, etc

Text was a feature never really used but it is there, some cable boxes also have this setting/feature.

Let me know if you have questions.

Tv screen only shows half of the picture ?


I would imagine the bottom or top half is black. My first suspicion, the vertical IC has bad grounds and needs resoldering. Do not short the pins together with excess solder! I would certainly start there for repairs. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

The screan is dark on the top and bottom and color is strong


This not the correct Model #, this model is a DLP set and does not have picture tubes and associated lenses. Did you remove the mirror? Does your set have a fold in back? I suspect the back is not fully out in the correct viewing position.

Coulor distortion at the top left of the screen


Hello jordan ashe,

This is an indication that the green CRT is having a convergence problem. This might be caused by the convergence amplifier or by the CRT. Does the rest of the picture look OK? and in addition can you supply a picture of your TV so as I can see what you are seeing and develop a proper diagnosis?


Thank you,
