Toshiba 53HX71 Proj CRT television - colors missing with HD only

Hi ! Recently bought this TV used from a friend. Analog interfaces work good. When I try to use the any one of the 2 Colorstream interfaces, the video is there, but it is like some colors are missing, and the pitcure is very dark. It is not a problem with a bad cable box or a bad DVD player, as the previous owner had the same problem. I am pretty knowledgeable with electronics and know how to solder electronics. Can anybody help at least narrow down what may be faulty ?

    i have a red colar tube that developed a problem over night the pic. is warped beyound adjustment. the bottem third looks like a rolling wave of ghosting . I have removed the power, bled the capaciter off, leveled the lens and tube pack and removed the outer lenses. under the red convex bottom lens,(the one sealed in fluid), there is what looks like a film which i can see lookes like it is warped which explains the wave. My question is can this film, which appears to be flexible be replaced, and if so what is the fluid that i am guessing works like a coolant. and wher to get replacement fluid. Or do I have to just replace the whole tube. any help on this subject would be helpfull. thanx...

DANGER I take it you understand that these can kill. Even WEEKS after they have been unplugged. The chassis can be HOT on them too, what is normally considered to be EARTH can be live with thousands of volts. Bleed the capacitor down first, using the right resistors, use rubber gloves, boots and stand on a rubber mat. Keep one hand in your pocket to avoid current going through your heart if you mess up. This is just how I do it since a near miss. Check out precautions yourself, from a reputable source if you still wish to try. Now that I have said that, it may be connections on the inside of the Colourstream interface. Sounds like you have dropped a colour and have another problem that could well be related. ie: two wires touching or shorting.

I would suggest to leave your directtv hd/dvr box connected the way It is.
The HD Colorstream 1input on your TV should work just fine.
This TV does not have an HDMI input but you can buy an adapter and connect to DVI/HDCP IN and that might be able to get 1080i video resolution on your TV.

No picture, no sound, but has power light...any suggestions? thx in advance


Do this first:


1: Check the antenna/cable connections.

2: Press the TV/VIDEO on the remote control or the TV to view a signal coming from another device connected to your TV, such as a VCR or
video disc player. You can select ANT 1,
VIDEO 1, VIDEO 2, VIDEO 3, ColorStream HD1, ColorStream HD2, or ANT 2 depending on which input jacks are used for connecting the devices.

*Be sure you have the right source to view video.

Try the above and post back before I can say there is a problem with your unit. If you have the user manual it's a good time to get it out. If you don't have it let me know and I will give you a link to obtain it. Good luck!!

Its not broken or nothin i was wondering how to put the input for cabel from cable/sat to colorstream hD1


Cable boxes or satellite receivers typically only come with audio/video output, RF output, and component output. You need an upgraded one which has the Hdmi output jack. The upgraded box will cost you a service fee around $5-10 a month, so if you don't want to pay to receive the 1080p service you can receive 720p by using the component video output leads from your cable box.

The quality is almost as good. The only difference will be that you won't be able to receive the hi-def channels that the cable company offers.

Digital to analog converter box hookup


You will have to go to Radio Shack or Wall Mart, maybe Home Depot and get a matching transformer. That will have spade terminals on one end to connect to your tv and a round (75ohm male thread) to hook to your converter box.

No signal


Weegee, Unfortunately you are trying to mix two different video types: VGA is an analog video interface found on most computers (except for latest with flat panel monitors, which are usually DVI). Your TV DVI interface is digital (although there is a DVI-A, which is an anlog DVI interface, it is unlikely that your TV has this). So, what you are trying to do probably won't work. I assume your computer does not have DVI output (otherwise you wouldn't have bought the adapter), but some monitors have VGA inputs; does yours? What kind of DVI adapter did you get? Is a DVI-A? Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvi for info on DVI interfaces.

No brightness for Colorstream either connections


Sounds like a bad coupling capacitor in the luminance "y" signal processor circuit. Use a schematic of the tv and a osciloscope to find this problem.
