Question about Toshiba 36A40 36" TV

1 Answer

Toshiba 36A40 36" TV / Chassis No: TAC 0011

About two months ago, my wife and I started noticing a faint white horizontal line form at the bottom of the screen, then it graduated to the bottom 4" (approx.)showing no picture. Today 05/23/07, when she turned on the set it was showing no picture about 10-inches from the top with a couple white lines through the picture and no picture near the bottom of the screen again. After a few minutes it started to widen and become clear again. Although, while we watch there is always the bottom 4-inches doing some weird things, but almost unnoticeable. We purchased this television in 2000 and really have enjoyed its picture, compared to our friends Sony Flat Screen. We want to save this baby. Is there any way I can rememdy this? I checked for a TV Repair shop around our geographical region and it only came up with one, which may not even exist anymore. I would like to try to open the television up myself and try to repair it. I appreciate all the help I can get. Regards, Karl

My 15 year old Toshiba Televisiononly shows a narrow horizontal band in the middle of the screen. Sound OK.

Hiii fairley,

You aren't specsificly dercribe yor tv set.
For common TV horizontal problem ;i.e : White line accross the horizontal screen, horizontal band,'s can solved by replacing the IC Vertical/Transistor, and olso to replace the cap nearest the IC.

For common TV Vertical Problem :i.e : White line at the center of the screen (top to bottom),Vertical band,etc...It's can cure by Replacing the Horizontal IC/Transistor,and offcurse the cap's.

Tha's what all I know....

Hope can help you to solved the problem.

I have the same problem with the same TV from Tosiba. I think Tosiba know about it but did nothing to repair it but sold millions of the same TV and Made good money. I think we all should soin togather and file a class action lawsuts against the company. They must fix the TV or pay our money back plus pay for our pain and suffering. There are many lawfirm will take this case and get paid from proceed.

The faint white lines at the top of the screen is the warning that the pump-up capacitor in the vertical output circuit is going bad and the output itself is about to short out. When the TV stops working, the vertical output IC has finally shorted out. Replacing the vertical output IC, the pump-up capacitor and possibly a small value resistor next to the flyback (B+ for the v-out) should bring the set back to life.
