Question about Toshiba 46HM95 46" HDTV

3 Answers

Vertical lines across the screen

I bought a Toshiba 46HM95 about 1.75 years ago. After 1 year my lamp dimmed and then exploded. Toshiba sent me a replacement lamp that was installed 6 months ago. Everything was working fine until this morning when vertical lines appeared evenly spaced across the screen. I called Toshiba and they told me that they dont know what it is and then gave me a number for a local service center. Is there a simple solution to solve this problem or will it require major mechanical repairs?

Re: Vertical lines across the screen

I now have the same problem. Lines are on the left side of the screen almost have way across the screen, with a thicker line int he middle which is the same length. It started last week and stopped after fiddling with it. Now it comes on fine then about 5 min . in the lines appear. I have had the tv for 1.75 years myself and have had to deal with bulbs popping numerous times (3). Was this the same as yours? Did solutions work? Please do tell.

I think better to replace the set as all this sounds like a light engine failing.

White vertical lines across the screen. Why and what can be done? Thw white lines appear and stay all the way across the screen. They are about 1.5" inbetween each vertical line,

You have a failure in the vertical circuit. Service can run between $75 to $150 depending on your area.(In home repair will cost more) If set is older then 3 years and under 27" recommend replacing it.

Panasonic PT-47X54J Not working

I can't tell you how to fix this set, but I can tell you that its not a "lamp" issue as this doesn't have a lamp. Its a 3 picture tube projection TV. the three tubes are in a red green blue format, and average about $175 for each one, not including the labor to install them. your problem, may not be the tube, but just a power supply problem, but there is a chance it is.

THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CONVERGENCE or any of the stk integrated circuits.There are few capacitors close to the vertical output ic, they are usually blue or red (could be 1000uf 50volts for e.g.)That where the problem is
