These two problems may not be related; the first is either a reaction of an overvoltage protection circuit that monitors the ~ 25kv supplied to the CRT or the sign of a decaying component, most likely an electroytic capacitor.
Sometimes, this component can be seen to be failing by a bulge on the top (or end, if horizontal) of the package or the appearance of a crusty desposit around the seal.

The second problem is probably coming from a failed or fractured solder joint, often called a 'cold' solder joint.
These quite often respond to mechanical jarring or disturbance of the board on which it occurs.
Looking for these without signal tracing capabilities can be a lifetime task.

Labor charges in both cases (if you still have a shop around) could be a significant amount.

I have a Mitsubishi 60inch 60737 replaced the bulb last it keeps cutting off,cleaned the filter before.someone said to reset bulb timer,how do I reset it.

The Lamp timer will not cause it to shut down. The timer should have been reset when you first turned the TV on after replacing the bulb. Make sure your bulb is an Osram brand bulb. If not, then you do not want to use it as it may not be very good.

The tv keeps cutting off. I have checked to make sure that the sleep and timer is oof but the tv still keeps cutting off. it cuts off sometimes every 5 min, and sometimes every hour or two.

Hi William,
If you have necessary tools and test instruments, and know safety precaution in basic troubleshooting, I would advice you to check/replace the electrolytic capacitor in the power supply section, this cap malfunction and produce out-of-regulation which sense by the feedback circuitry and turn the unit into subsequent shutdown. Also, look for a bad solder joints on the board., it will do the same thing. Secondary reasons of symptom is Voltage Regulator IC, and microcontroller circuitry.
If you can't do the job yourself, I would advice you to look for a technician to isolate the faulty parts.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Toshiba TV picture has shifted high

if it cannot be adjusted then there is a problem in tv. your problem is in vertical output circuit Can this be corrected easily ? yes or do I need to start looking for a new TV? I love this one and would like to keep it a while longer. not to look for new will keep it for longer that has a picture that recently shifted upward and now cuts off about 1 inch of the top of the picture. Otherwise it functions properly. your problem is in vertical output circuit please check 1loose contact in vertical output section 2 capacitor defective in v/output. it is a common problem. it is a not a major problem. if you are not tech person get it done by skilled tech. hope this will help.
