    I only have it hook up to a hi-def, reciever using a HDMI cable. Where my black like is, it looks like the line is where the 4:3 outline should be, but -like I said, I only watch Hi-Def channels, and Blueray, and PS3 with it. Will the firmware update help?

    I have the same problem. Verticle black line in the center of the screen. Is there a solution?

  • joz1 Jan 22, 2009

    I also have a vertical line where the 4:3 would normally end.  The lines used to disappear after 30 minutes or so as the TV warmed up, but now one pink vertical line on the left will not go away.  :-(


    This seems to be a known problem.  Any way to fix this without a major $$$ back to Toshiba?


    Any help is appreciated.  Thank you!

Hello,
I have a "Home-fix" for you, you should watch this you tube video on how to repair a symptom such as yours even though it is a sanyo tv the fix is pretty much the same for your television and may save you oodles of money!

I got multiple thin colors on the middle of the screen


My 3-year old 52-inch Toshiba flat panel TV (Model # 52RV53U, Serial # AM409000295) developed a display issue (purchased Aug. 2008, manufactured July 2008). Vertical multicolored lines appeared on the screen just left of center. The band of thin vertical bars is 5.5 inches wide. The lines are about 1/16-inch wide. They are stationary, always exactly in same place. They over-ride any other picture on the screen (no transparency). They are there all time even with no video inputs to the TV after the unit is turned on. See picture #1. The TV works well in every other respect, but, obviously, it is annoying to watch the picture with the color band blocking about 1/6 of the picture.

I already swapped out the TCON board with no improvement and replugged the TCON board cables with no improvement.

Most likely it is the flat panel tab bond failure (panel made by Samsung). Further updates will be on my Facebook page.

42 inch flat screen shows black screen with sound only no picture


That sounds like the backlight system or its powersupply has failed. If you can see an ghost like image when close and at an angle near the dge (depends on the light) then this confirms the backlight being the problem.

Repair cost should be about $100. You should be able to get this fixed under warrenty if you have any. If not get repair estimates before doing anything. It should be worth fixing but it never hurts to know if it is getting close to what a new replacment tv is worth.

Weird lines on Toshiba REGZA


its in warranty ship it, the problem is actually not common but it is a problem it is related to the processor on the main board, and um don't trust salesmen to tell you about repair issues. They really don't have a clue. if you need a tv for to weeks then rent one for two weeks they are not that expensive to rent
