There is a bad solder connection in the vertical sweep circuit. if you know how toi solder, go and find the vertical output IC and resolder that first.. but if you have no solid state electronic repair experience, please find a trained tech to assist you in this repair, as if you wait it may end up costing you double of what it would now, so haveit done ASAP. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this one.

Most likley what it could be is an interferance in the TV. Modern TV's have a feature that will shut itself off when it is not receving a picture. For instance, after so many minutes of "snow" it will shut off.sometimes this can make the TV think there is no signal at shut itself off.Anyway, I suspect its an interferance issue. Perhaps moving the TV further from the source of the interferance might help.

Toshiba TV (about 7 years old)

You had parts in the vertical deflection circuit failing, most common are the vertical output IC and possibly several capacitors also in the same circuit.

We have perfect sound but only a thin horizontal line in the middle of the screen.

this is a capacitor that has gone bad in the vertical delfection stage of the tv. it is an very easy and cheap fix if you know someone who knows how to solder and replace electronic components. If not then you'll just have to get another tv as taking it into a tv repair shop is not worth the cost. You could get another tv for what they will charge you to repair it,

Screen is black except for thin line in middle of screen

The problem is in the vertical section of the main board. Bad capacitors and maybe the vertical IC. If you are not inclined to be a tech you will have to take it to a shop.. I don't know what they may charge but I normally get $69- $89
