Question about Toshiba 50HX81 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

When I turn the TV on the picture is severely wavy for about 30 minutes getting clearer as the time goes by. When it first started 7 months ago the time period was shorter. Can this be fixed inexpensively or is the TV going out for good.

Sounds like you have a weakening horizontal capacitor in the power supply. I would certainly visit your local TV tech and have them repair this. It is neccessary to service now before repairs are to expensive. H ave them check all capacitors and resolder any and all bad grounds. The ones in particular include any ICs mounted on heat sinks and your power resistors and horizontal transformers. This should cover most of it. Take this note to them. They will know what you are asking. Thanks for asking!

TV turns on, hear sound but no picture. Bulb isn't coming on. TV goes off after about 2-3 minutes. Bulb was just replaced 5 months ago.

Hello,

The problem is from the lamp of the television, it seems to be having some faults, it is gradually getting damaged.

It will start by being wavy until it goes completely blank.

Some lamps go for about $125 or more. Some go for $200.

Take care and Good luck

Flickering/jumping picture


I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. TV WAS FINE UNTIL A FEW MONTHS AGO. OF COURSE ITS OUT OF WARRANTY. FROM WHAT I HAVE READ, AND BEEN TOLD, IT IS THE POWER SUPPLY TO THE UNIT. IT IS DEFECTIVE, OR IT OVERHEATS AND TRIES TO SHUT DOWN. A LAW SUIT IS IN PROGRESS AGAINST WESTINGHOUSE TO RESOLVE THIS MATTER. KINDA REMINDS ME OF THE XBOX 360'S WHEN THEY CAME OUT. ALL YOU CAN DO IS TAKE IT IN FOR SERVICE. OR, YOU CAN KEEP TURNING IT ON AND OFF, LIKE I DO. I HAVE HAD THIS TV ON ALL NIGHT BEFORE WITH NO PROBLEMS. AS SOON AS I START CHANGING STATIONS, OUT IT GOES. GOOD LUCK. WESTINGHOUSE WILL NOT EVEN EMAIL ME. I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL TIMES TO CONTACT THEM. I HAVE HEARD FROM THE LAW FIRM IN CALIFORNIA THAT IS GOING AFTER THEM. GO ONLINE, AND JOIN THE CRUSADE.

Video distortion


You need to take your tv in and have the picture deflector re-aligned.  This doesn't cost much, My dad had to do that to his a few months ago and it cost 30 bucks.

Your power supply is going south, I have an old sony with the same problem. The voltage level drops and does not have enough 'kick' to start. It will work better when it is warm. The module will need to be replaced.

Very wavy picture- gets worse when show has fast-cuts


First thing Do not beleive peeps about a bad card. Modules are not used in TV sets any more unles your talking about a complete board change out for a Zenith TV set. Toshiba sets do not have a card or board changeout!.. These peeps are crooks! A Toshiba set is repaired to componet level. It sounds like you may have a convergence problem or a problem inj the power supply involving the filter or couping capacitors. Seek out a pro whos an authorized servicer for Toshiba.

Wavy picture


this is caused by a bad convergence module, and there are probably some dried out electrolytic caps in the circuit as well. i have one in the shop right now that came in with the same problem. if you have it serviced, make sure they replace all of the convergence modules (there are usually 2, but sometimes 3 of them), because if one went bad the other(s) is likely to go out soon as well.
