20 Most Recent Toshiba TP50G50 50" Rear Projection Television Questions & Answers


follow this test and fix it. GOd bless you
You simply need a screwdriver (Phillips-head) and then follow this guide:
  • Reset component settings. Usually, the problems you encounter with a projection TV may be resolved through the resetting to its factory settings. If you experience inaccuracies in the color, reset the television's PerfectTint/PerfectColor capabilities. Simply press the Menu tab and then highlight "Perfect Color" using your right key arrow. After this, press "Enter" and then "Reset" in order to reset to factory settings. If you have audio / video problems (VCR or DVD player), simply press "Menu" and highlight the "Reset" option.
  • Reset television controls. In case you cannot fix your TV via its component settings, there are other ways of resetting. Just select "Menu", key in "1, 2, 3", and then press "Enter." In doing this, the TV's manufacturer's specifications will all be restored. If your TV's power system does not function, you should perform a complete system reset. You can do this by clicking on Reset System button located at the TV's control panel. Your television will be turned off and then a green light (LED) will quickly flash for approximately one minute. Once the light has stopped flashing, your TV should immediately turn on.
  • Use your remote control. The first step is to inspect the batteries of the remote control and see if they are functioning. If its power button starts to blink several times once you turned it on, then the batteries need to be replaced. See to it that your remote control is used within about 20 feet from the television. Make sure also that nothing blocks the space between the remote control and the receiver.
  • Check the fan. Once the television is turned off, it is just normal for its fan to become louder. A projection TV actually depends on its lamp, which requires cooling so that it will not prematurely burn out. If the room where your TV is placed is very hot, the fan would also continue to run.
Replace projection lamp. To properly do this, make sure that the lamp's bulb has cooled down and the TV is unplugged. Carefully remove the cover of the lamp's compartment using your screwdriver (Phillips-head). Unscrew the sealed part of the lamp that can be found at the television's rear part. Take away the old lamp cartridge and then insert a new one. Seal the lamp with screws, replace its cover and then screw tightly.

the screen on my toshiba tp50g50 is cracked. where can I get a replacement screen?

Toshiba TP50G50... | Answered on May 18, 2012


you can try MENU... settings to alter the convergence red.. blue... green factors. But you could end up making it worse

I suspect the prblem is beyond the usual user adjustment and requires professional intervention inside the unit. It may even need the color engine replacing ( $300) It is not a DIY as many before you have experienced despite the warnings. DIY can end up costing 3 times the rate of a real tech.


Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

This is probably a cold solder joint on the bottom of the chassis. I would look at the Vertical IC first, then Convergence IC's. Then look over the entire board.

Bought another remote control for the TV

Your set has 3 screens:
FA812 SuperShield is no longer available
23837472 Lenticular lens is no longer available
23837450 Fresnal lens is also not available.

Check with some of your local TV shops. You may find a non-working TV with good screens for sale.

Good luck

Sounds as though you have a filter capacitor bad in the power supply. I strongly suggest you have it checked and repaired soon, before it burns up a transistor or regulator. The cost may be a bit high now, but will escalate to possibly a complete power supply board. If you can repair your own set, check the main power supply filter capacitors. Good luck. I hope this has helped.

Your alignment is off. Go to the set up menu then convergence. hit right and you will be in the convergence menu. select the color that is not in alignment. The green line does not move. if blue and green are lined up the line will be cyan. if red and green are lined up the line will be yellow. when all three are lined up the color will be light. Best of luck!

Hello,
I doubt you blew the picture tube. I do think you damaged the main board ( power supply board). First I would suggest you check the fuses, in both the main board and also the convergence board ( there are two main boards in your set ). Before you start, always use caution by unplugging the set from the wall. To check the fuses, remove the bottom panel cover in the back of the set by removing the screws. Use a flashlight and observe all the fuses you can find and see if any are opened or burned out. ( if the fuse is burned out, it will be black, you may not be able to see if the fuse is just opened without using a continuity checker ( volt ohm meter ) ). Any fuses you find open or burned out, replace with a like fuse ( voltage and amperage ). The set should work fine if a fuse is the problem. If the set doesn't have a bad fuse or won't work after replacing a bad fuse, then you will probably have to seek professional help. Good luck. I hope this has helped.

Sounds as thought you have a dead B+ from the power supply board. Replacement of the board should be a certain fix. The power supply could be fixed with the help of a good service technician. I hope this has helped.

Use code search on your Westinghouse URC to find something that works. If a search through all codes stored in the URC fails, try a different one.

I may be guessing, but here goes. Make sure all the ink cartridges are seated. In Properties, got to Advance - have your settings checked off as follows: Spool print documents so program finishes printing faster, Aart printing after last page is spooled.

Clean the heads in printer, maybe a sllightly dirty cartridge opeining.
Other than above, I don't really know the correct solution.
