    My Sept. 2006 Orion TV Model TVD2710 has the same problem. The posted solution says to "fix vertical controls". But, how do I do that? Specifically. I'm not an electonics wizard. Are there any repair locations in the Kansas City, MO metro area?

I got multiple thin colors on the middle of the screen

My 3-year old 52-inch Toshiba flat panel TV (Model # 52RV53U, Serial # AM409000295) developed a display issue (purchased Aug. 2008, manufactured July 2008). Vertical multicolored lines appeared on the screen just left of center. The band of thin vertical bars is 5.5 inches wide. The lines are about 1/16-inch wide. They are stationary, always exactly in same place. They over-ride any other picture on the screen (no transparency). They are there all time even with no video inputs to the TV after the unit is turned on. See picture #1. The TV works well in every other respect, but, obviously, it is annoying to watch the picture with the color band blocking about 1/6 of the picture.

Further info, pics, comments, and updates on my Facebook page at

I already swapped out the TCON board with no improvement and replugged the TCON board cables with no improvement.

Most likely it is the flat panel tab bond failure (panel made by Samsung). Further updates will be on my Facebook page.

This is called Field Collapse and usually caused by the frame/field output going open circuit and/or the componants that surround that part.

Call a service centre in your locality who put it right (:-)

Toshiba projection TV. Bulbs wont come on

The deflection board in failing, eventually it will not come on at all, disconnecting power is only reseting the HV shutdown protection circuit which is the reason your set if failing. Have a technician replace the Horizonal Output Transistor and the flyback transformer.

Please comment if you need futher assitance.

Hello, please check the high current area around flyback transformer, horizontal output transistor as well as the deflection connector for bad soldering. Best regards, Arpi If you need more info please advice.

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom

It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
