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?

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.

My understanding is that you have 2 laptops with the same problem, if that is the case, you need to replace the lcd. When you have lines on lcd's, that is a sign of a bad lcd.
