Question about Toshiba 46H83 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Major screen problem with 46H83 - HELP!

I don't even know how to describe this... sometimes I get no picture at all and the menu options appear "curved" on the screen. Sometimes the screen goes insane with different colors flashing all over the place. Sometimes I lose vertical or horizontal hold. Sometimes it appears that only the red/blue/green lamps is working. Sometimes, albeit very rarely, it works JUST FINE. The solution is to turn it off and turn it back on, but the problem persists soon thereafter. Has anybody encountered something like this? I'm desperate for help. Thanks.

    Also - sometimes it just sits there and flashes pink or green, or blue, or anything else you can think of. Sometimes these crazy lines and patterns form.

    I'm telling you, I think this thing is possessed!

    FWIW - the sound works perfectly fine, and there is no issue with screen burn in.

    The problems started approximately 1.5 years after purchase, which was about a year ago... still having the issues, and they're getting worse every day.

    Thank you for your help -- do you have any idea what type of cost I would be looking at for a profressional repair? I'm guessing this is a pretty standard repair job?

    Thanks again.

    Just curious - what if the issue, as you say, is the capacitor? Am I looking at something drastically more expensive?

    In short, I'm weighing the option of getting this thing repaired vs. buying something new... Obviously, I would like to extend the life of this instead of spending $3000 or so on something new.

    Thanks again for your help.

The convergence IC first need to be changed and this might cause all of your problems to go away. if it does not then theres a bad capacitor in the sweep power supply thats bad also. but as I said change out both STK convergence IC's first.

    If you pay over 350 bucks I think your getting ripped off cause these IC's are cheap!!

How to Add a Background Picture to a Microsoft Word Document 2007

t is easy to add a background picture by using the Watermark feature. First, you will click on “Page Layout”. In that menu bar (or ribbon), click on “Watermark”. A window menu will open. At the bottom of that window menu, click on “Custom Watermark”.
In the new menu that opens, check “Picture Watermark”, then “Select Picture” to find an image file on your computer to use. You have the option to have the picture look faded, as a watermark, or displayed in its full color. Check “Washout” for the faded option, or uncheck, to view the background picture in its full glory.

To remove the watermark, simply click “Watermark”, and choose the “Remove Watermark” option.

Hi Adrien, the easiest way to set a picture as a Windows background is to open the picture in your web browser and right click on it. A menu box should appear, about half way down you should see an option labeled *Set as Background*. Left click on that option and Windows will automatically use that picture as you background image and tile it to fill your entire desktop. Alternatively if you have Windows XP and use the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer program to display the picture the process is the same except when you right click on the picture the selection will be *Set as Desktop Background*. When you select that option it will do the same thing. If you don?t like the tiled effect right click on the desktop and select properties from the popup menu. In the display properties box that appears click on the Desktop tab, and in the lower right hand corner you will see a field labeled *Position*. Left click on the pull down arrow and select center or stretch, depending on what effect you want. Let us know if you need any other help and don?t forget to rate the posting.
