Vertical bar on Toshiba Regza 46RF350U.

I have received this TV from my older cousin that has had it over a year and a half and told me that I can have it if I can fix it. I have messed with plasmas but not with LCDs. It can be a damaged screen or a messed up sustainer board or even the main board. I am writing to see if anyone has ran into this problem before and found a solution or has gotten advice from a repair person on how to go about to fix this problem. I have been told the TV has not been dropped, but my cousin has been known to fib every once in a while. I don't see any marks of damage on the case. Thank you for reading my rant.

    I have vertical lines on my Toshiba Regza 46-in (46RF350U) that would disappear after the TV would warm up.  But now one of the vertical lines remains even after the TV warms up.  Is there a fix for this?

    I am having the same problem. My 46RF350U has a line on the right side, about 5-6 inches in. Has been a yellow line, and currently is a black line. Sometimes it is normal, and sometimes the black line is there. Goes right through the O in FOX when watching in full screen on a FOX channel of course.

    I have the same problem and a friend (who I convinced to buy the same model) has the exact same problem. The line is on the left, about 5 inches from the edge.
    Toshiba should really do a recall since this appears to be a munufacturer defect

Half screen showing picture other half showing color lines

This is a catastrophic and known failure of older Toshiba sets, not much you can do, try to take out a retrospective extended warranty, wait a month and claim, good luck.

Vertival Color Lines

We had the same thing happen to us on the right-hand side. A technician told us yesterday that the Motorola Cable Box (supplied by Shaw Cable) places a border on Non-True HD Channels. Because we didn't place our picture setting to 'full-screen' each time we viewed these channels and burn line was created. He gestimated a replacement screen runs about $800.00 Canadian, but we have a 3 year extended warranty and will receive a new TV. He also said it happens on all big screen tv's that use a cable box creating borders on Non-True HD Channels.
