Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Toshiba Regza 42 inch 720p HDTV LCD 1-1/2 years old. Suddenly have a small vertical blue line down left side of screen after tv is on for about 1 hour. The line is where the smaller aspect ratio picture edge appears. I have HD cable and disconnected it to see if this was a cable issue but it's not. Had one repair estimate of $300-$500!

That sounds about right....
The blue line indicates an LCD panel failure.
Typical in this Samsung screen (i know it is branded Toshiba - but the LCD is made by Samsung)
I would get in touch with Toshiba - and complain about your only 1.5 year old set needing a new LCD. It has worked for many customers. They send a new panel to the Toshiba Authorized repair center and pick up 1/2 or all the labor costs.
Cant hurt - just dont take no for an answer.
This is a known "Line Fault" in the Regza 42" and 46".
Some experience the problem going away after about 10 minutes of viewing.

The screen has colored vertical lines and becomes to a dark black band about 6 inches of width.The tv is exactly two years old by today.


My 3-year old 52-inch Toshiba flat panel TV (Model # 52RV53U, Serial # AM409000295) developed a display problem (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.

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 solution updates will be on my Facebook page.

A LINE JUST APPEARED DOWN THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE LCD, IT IS BLUE, IT IS A MATSUI 42 INCH LCD ONLY 1 YEAR OLD. IT IS ONLY A THIN LINE BUT GOES FROM THE TOP TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN.


There is something that is wrong with your LCD panel. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole LCD panel which is very expensive ($500+) and time consuming (need to take whole TV apart).

Vertical line on my 46" toshiba lcd tv


The only logical solution for the problems people are having for the toshiba regza's tv's is to get into a class action law suite..., they contiue to sell tv's with defective parts and refuse to help the customer that spent large cash to find out they last if your lucky 2.5 years, they are junk and anyone with one will soon find out./.......
