Question about Toshiba 27A44 27" TV
There are horizontal lines running across top inch of the screen all the way from one side to the other. TV still watchable and works fine but am wondering if this is an easy fix. Only paid $200 for the set and don't want to pay more than $100 to repair. Thanks for your help. David in VA
Can anyone produce schematics and or pictures of the vertical hold capacitor. Something similar to this: http://www.thathomesite.com/forums/load/electronics/msg010215046854.html?12

I also have the same problems with horizontal lines about 3" from the top. There should be a recall. Called store where it was purchased (in 2003/04) and they quoted $75.00 to pick up,$40.00 service charge and then the cost to fix it. If I could lift it and take it there, it might be worthwhile however that is impossible.
But buying another Toshiba is going to be out of the question.
Have another tv, Sanyo and never had a problem and it is over 10 yrs old.
Come on Toshiba, when there is a widespread problem like this it should be recalled.

I have the same problem with white horizontal lines across the top of the screen. The problem improves a little as the TV warms up. I sprayed cold spray on Q410 which appears to be a vertical drive transistor. Is this a good enough indictator that this is the faulty part? It's a cheap NTE54 and easy to get to. Any thoughts?
