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?

My son shot his LCD TV tih air soft pistol. The picture is now like /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ at the bottom of the screen. It is starting to get worse and move up to the top. Is there any way to fix...

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.

White dots in plasma tv

The only thing you can try is to adjust the tiny control on the Y board, if you want to try do this. Open the set , set it up so you can watch it with the back off. now looking at the back on the left side you will see a circuit board larger connected to a smalled one or two that go to the screen edge . on the larger board look for a few small controls, mark their positions with a dark sharpy then turn each a little while looking at the dots to see if one makes them better or worse. If one control effects the dots try to center it for the least amount of dots, if no effect is observed when a control is turned return it the original position that you mark before starting. if the dots do not clear either the Y board is bad or the whole scfreen is defective.

Son just shot an air gun at the screen and now it has vertical black lines going down the middle of the screen. Can this be fixed?

No you will have to have the front panel replaced. This can be very expensive and is probably not economical depending on the value of your tv. Dave Smith
