Question about Toshiba 46H84 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Vertical lines I've a Toshiba 46H84 Projection TV. When I first turn on TV, I've vertical lines across screen, but it does get better after it warms up. But now it seems to take longer to clear up, also I've noticed after it clears up, I've what they use to call ghost lines, but I use Directv satellite so that never has created a problem before, and I've two other TV's on the same dish without any problems. Before I noticed the vertical lines I did notice that the picture seemed dark and I adjusted the brightness on it, but it really did not make any kind of difference. Is this something I can repair myself by changing out a module?

Dark vertical lines come on the screen

If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, greenish, or blueish or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as

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.

This a common problem in many of the Toshiba sets----set has a "HYPER" circuit board that processes all the signal for the set--surface mounted caps all start to dry out--always starts out where it will have the problem and then when on for a while it gets better and goes away--eventually when enough of the caps are gone--it never gets better.

Board is now only available by removing it and sending it out for rebuild/repair---company doining this is Pts electronics--part number is:

23148103Cost is about 180 dollars plus shipping and this may mean considering the labor to get the board out that the set is not worth repairing.

Sorry to give you bad news but I am certain this is what your trouble is.

Toshiba 46In HD Rear projection TV Vertical lines on screen

We also have vertical lines with our JVC 62"... turning it off and letting it cool down is the only solution. For us, we know it's a problem with heat. We simply are wits end on fixing it. added two additional fans, a exterior fan to blow heat away from the back of the tv, pulled everything else away, etc.... Anyway, goodluck.
