Vibrating lines across top 1/3rd of tv when turned on

When I turn my tv on there are vibrating lines across the top 1/3rd of the tv. After it warms up in time they seem to go away. One technician said it was the video display board, which he said is about $280. He just looked at the picture and did not open up the tv. What would you recomend to do. The set is just 4 yrs old. I am pretty handy and if told what and where parts need to be replaced, I am confident I could do it. Please let me know your thoughts and where I could get the correct parts to fix my tv .

Re: vibrating lines across top 1/3rd of tv when turned on

Your problem is the hyper board, or whats also called the scan board, not the video board. This board is right behind the input board in the back of the TV set. This is a little tricky taking this board out. There are a few tabs that hold the shielding for the onto the printed circuit board, and if your not careful, you can seriously damage the main board. If you get this hyper board out of the set, go to, call them and give them the number on the shield and they will tell you if they can overhaul this board. Most of these they can and the cost is about 135 to 150 bucks. A new board, if you can find one, cost about 350 bucks or so. Just be very careful un-soldering the metal tabs at the bottom of the circuit board directly underneath the hyper board. The board itself simply plugs into the main board, but like I said before, it is held into the main board by metal tabs underneath it. Good Luck

White horizontal lines covering picture on Toshiba 51HC85

The set uses a Hyper board inside that processes all signals, it is well known for this issue, board no longer available=reason is quite simple : about a dozen tiny surface mounted filter caps on that board with age dry out, at first it will work after warms up as poor caps regain some capacitance and seem to be ok.

Buy a new set, you can send that board out and have it repaired/rebuilt but the last one I saw which was under extended warranty cost about 200 just for the board rebuild.

In the last 4 years Here on Fixya I have encountered only 2 people who were able with instructions had the skill to remove the board and replace those caps, both were top notch computer repair techs.

Hello..Toshiba 51HC85, 2005 model. Turn on TV and verticle wavy lines appear until TV is warmed up completely. After warm up the picture is great again. Any ideas?

I've had the same problem for about the last 6 months. My workaround which was to leave the tv on 24 7 and just turn off the TWC service box. But now the symptoms are vertical dark lines going all the way across screen. My guess is that it will cost more to fix than worth it. I paid @$2000 for it new in 2004. Technology has gotten better so I may just go out and get a Samsumg for considerably less and be way better off. None of Toshiba's products had done well for me. 2 laptops, 3 tvs, etc. have taught me this.

Re: black line across the top of screen!

Is it a bias line or is it there constantly? A biased line goes away as the set warms up and that could be caps in the digital board. If it's there all the time the LE or color wheel could be bad. Need a bit more information on this to be helpful.
