Toshiba TP50G60 Big Black Square Covering the screen?

Can someone please help me identify my problem? I have a Toshiba TP50G60 Rear Projection TV. When I turn it on the picture comes on, but only for a second. Then a get a big black square that just about covers the screen area. I can still see the picture around the border of the black box. I have tried switching inputs, changing input channels, changing cables...NOTHING...still does it. Does anyone know what this is and how to repair it?

I have a Toshiba TP50G60 Rear-Projection 50" TV. It only stays on for a few seconds and then turns off. I heard this is a common problem for this type of t.v.. Is it a lost cause? If not, what should...


deesturkey,

Your unit was made in 1997. That is going on 14 years of use. While I like to fix all the TVs I can this one is probably going to keep having problems even if you solve this one. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6396176-projection_tv_troubleshooting which will walk you through the troubleshooting process and also tell you where to get any parts you need. Keep in mind though that the unit is very old for a projection TV.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

No sound


More than likely you need to go into your menu settings. Check to ensure that your TV speakers are enabled. The previous owners may had it hooked to theater system

I have a toshiba 50inch rear progetion tv. I was


There is one mirror inside. It is easy to remove the front plastic screen by removing the bottom fabric grill (snaps off by pulling outward like a removable speaker grill). Remove several wood screws along bottom edge of screen. Lift up the whole plastic screen frame and pull it away from the TV; but be careful with the control wires that go to the center panel, which snaps off the big screen frame easily. The mirror is right there.

My Toshiba 50 inch projection screen TV isnt displaying


If you are capable of some basic troubleshooting you can determine what's wrong but you won't likely be able to fix it yourself. If you remove the TV's back panel, you can locate three plug connectors for the convergence correction yokes. You pull the red, blue, and green connectors and then plug the TV back in and hit the power button. If the TV comes on, its a failure of the convergence output ICs and will cost $350-450 if you call in a service company.

Picture goes out when floor jars the TV.


Check for bad solder connections around where the tuner attaches to the chassis. Look for cracks with a magnifying glass solder should appear shiny with no circular cracks.

Sounds like the circuit board may need to be replaced. Mine did a similiar thing only my picture turned upside down, screen went blank yet had good voice. Samsung tech said the 2 circuit boards were bad and had to be replaced at a cost of $780 in parts plus labor. I bought a new LCD TV, not Samsung.

TP50G60 bad scrambled picture - shuts off after 1 minute


This does not sound to me like a convergence roblem. It could be a shorted picture tube. That would put the set in a shutdown condition. Normally in Toshibas , the picture remains on with a convergence problem. Here is something you can try, but you must be very careful. Remove one crt board at a time from all three tubes. if the set stays on after one of the crt board are removed , then that is the shorted picture tube.I cannot caution you on how care full you have to be trying this procedure.
