Question about Toshiba REGZA 42 in. Flat-Panel LCD HDTV

1 Answer

My son shot the tv screen with an air soft gun.

The problem started out a a little dot but has spread to block out the whole right side of the screen. To get it to show anything you have to press on the screen where it was shot and you get a partial on the left side. Can I replace the screen and if so how much?

The panel needs replacing.

It's the single most expensive component in the TV and usually as a spare part alone costs more than the TV. Let your son keep his pistol and tell him how to use it safely, or take the pistol off him and buy a new TV.

Near the bottom edge of the screen on my Wega KF-50WE 610 has appeared a ''blue haze'' that appears after the TV has warmed up. It started a few days ago as ''fuzzy blue dots'' about the size of silver...


This was caused by a defect in the optical block of the TV. It will only get worse with time and the only way to fix it is to replace the whole optical block which is very expensive (over $1000 usually) and time consuming (you need to take the whole TV apart). However, since it was a defect, there was a class action lawsuit that caused Sony to extended the warranties for certain models on the optical block for parts and labor. Call Sony to see if your model was one of the ones they extended the warranty for.
