Question about Toshiba TP61H60 61" Rear Projection Television
In the late 70's I was OJT for America West TV, the ink still wet on my CET diploma. I can remember my instructor Bod Fagren saying, "if you're not certain you can do it don't attempt to guess, ask questions..." It sound like what youre describing is a loss of vertical deflection. This is usually caused by the vertical IC having shorted out. In the 61H60 that IC is Q301 an LA7833s Toshiba p/n#23319787 and costs about $20 bucks. But other components feeding that IC, resistors and caps should be tested to determine if the IC failed due to heat or was stressed because of higher than normal voltages. In all a shop usually carries that part on-hand or has access to it. And the repair can usually be completed in a couple of hours. In short, I'd have it done by a reputable shop. Taking the TV to them will help keep the costs down too. If you're not too sure where to find a good repair shop try calling NESDA (National Electronic Service Dealer's Assn.) and they can usually give you a couple of referrals to one of their member's shops in your area. Good Luck Bill
