A dark shadow is diagonal across the top of the screen. Can it be fixed?


hi,
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} The most common problem for this complaint is contaminated coolant for the picture tubes. If you look directly into the three picture tubes you will probably see a haze in the blue one. This is fairly common but requires a knowledgeable service man to take care of.

Thin shade on top of screen on the toshiba


it's a faulty light engine. Toshiba usually does replaces those for free because they sold with a faulty part. Had mine replaced for free last year. Check your serial number on this page:

...and if it checks out, give them a call!

I have about a 4" dark section at the top of my screen


I assume that its there regardless of of which screen size you select.

If that's the case, it will be a problem somewhere in the optical light path. There are a couple of things in there that can fall into the light path. One is a defective light tunnel, another is something as simple as the mirror falling out of place.

In any case, you'll need to call service for this.
