Question about Toshiba TP50F50/51 50" Rear Projection Television
I have a Toshiba TP50F50 t.v. that seems to have a loose connection. We will be watching and the picture will go to static or the volume/audio will get loud or softer. This occasionally coincides with movement on our hardwood floors. At first stomping the floor would bring the picture back. When that became ineffective, I checked the cable/satellite in connection. Wiggling that worked for a while. Then it seemed the position/pressure on the plastic panel that housed the cable in connector played a part, because wiggling that will bring the picture back. Now, I have traced the connection inside to a card (like a computer card) that the satellite in cable is connected to inside. And wiggling that little card will bring the picture back. Sometimes it seems the back of the set is pretty warm, too. I don't know if heat would affect the connection. While it is good exercise to get up and wiggle these parts - and my parts :) - I would love to find a way to fix this long term. ANd before I run out of things to wiggle or electrocute myself by touching something in there I shouldn't. I really love this TV - it is a part of my family, and of course, I am broke, so fixing it would seem a less costly option. Any suggestions on exactly what part should be replaced?
