    Hello,
    I recently purchased a TOSHIBA 42HD82 RPTV. The TV works fine except that there is a red hue on the right hand side of the screen. The hue is quite faint and visible only when screen is displaying mostly white subject. I am wondering why a new TV should display this phenomenon. Can you please advice as to whether this is a serious enough issue that I should return the set to the store or if it is a correctable issue?

    thanks!
    sunthash.

    It is probably a simple convergence problem, there should be a menu option allowing up to set up the crts properly

    thanks very much. I did try this but the hue remains. I have contacted the service folks who will be paying a visit soon.

    from what I gather from here and my own experience, it's a common fault, it's impossible to correct with the TV's own convergence system using the remote.

    I had to send my Toshiba 42 back because of this fault.

    My Thomson 46 has a reset defaults option in the service menu. Maybe the Tosh has one too


    Also, mine has 3 levels on which to calibrate

    3 x 3
    5 x 5
    15 x 15




    As you can see, if you calibrate using the 15 x 15 on Red, Green and Blue + White then you have a total of 225 x 3 = 675 different calibration points ( sod that lol)
