Toshiba 24" TV Problem

My mother-in-law's TV, which is not very old, has a problem with the picture.  On the top 3 or 4 inches of the set there are always a series of horizontal lines.  Is there a way to adjust this?  or is the picture going bad??

Re: Toshiba 24" TV Problem


Neither adjustable nor the picture going bad.

But appears to be a minor problem,  chances are that a component in the vertical section of the TV is starting to fail.  If you would opt to check it out/fix yourself, most probably would be a capacitor very near the vertical IC, value would be something like 100uF/50V.  Though considered a simple job, this would require that you be familiar with electronic components & circuitry, a bit of soldering and use of a DVM.

Should you not be comfortable doing the above, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified tech.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

I Have a Toshiba 27DF46 The Picture is shifted to the right about 3 inches or so. other than that the picture is fine but I can't see the right edge on the picture. Any thoughts

Try going into the picture settings in the options. Many Toshiba TVs have the option to move the picture up, down, left, and right. See if you are able to position the TV to the left more.

Also, see if there is a reset button in the options. A setting may have been switched that caused this.

Toshiba TV picture has shifted high

if it cannot be adjusted then there is a problem in tv. your problem is in vertical output circuit Can this be corrected easily ? yes or do I need to start looking for a new TV? I love this one and would like to keep it a while longer. not to look for new will keep it for longer that has a picture that recently shifted upward and now cuts off about 1 inch of the top of the picture. Otherwise it functions properly. your problem is in vertical output circuit please check 1loose contact in vertical output section 2 capacitor defective in v/output. it is a common problem. it is a not a major problem. if you are not tech person get it done by skilled tech. hope this will help.
