Question about Toshiba 32A60 32" TV

1 Answer

Wide black bar on bottom of screen

I have a 32" Toshiba tv. It's about 10 years old. I have had no problems with it until recently. Now when it is on, there is a wide black bar across the bottom of the screen. All the images are crammed into a much smaller space on the tv, so everything is distorted. I looked for some time of vertical or horizontal adjustment on it, but I guess they don't have those on the tv's anymore! Just wondered if it is a problem worth trying to fix, or if I should just toss it. Thanks.

Re: Wide black bar on bottom of screen

I you know how to repair electronics its not a hard fix. The worst case would be the vertical output IC but im thinking th its nothing more then a capacitor in the verticle sweep circuit The average cost to repair this should be around 75 to 125 bucks. Good Luck

Blackout area on screen

Make sure the TEXT and CAPTION options are turned off.

I am not sure about the Sonny's, but on my Toshiba a black box appears when I inadvertently leave one of the close captioning (CC) on for text or captions on (such as CC1, CC2, etc.).

Unable to view fullscreen in hdtv

That is the way HDTV is viewed on many screens as a wide fromat. So you will get top and bottom non-viewable areas. It is the width that gives the full imagery for that format. To have the screen filled you would get a standard 4:3 format like standard TV. HD is a 16:9 format so it is much wider.

Black screen with colorful line going horizontally through the middle of the screen

Problem in the vertical circuitry.
If you have the know-how, check for "cold-solder" joints around vertical i.c.
Also, bad electrolytic caps.
Voltages ok?
Resistor values ok?
Replace I.C.
