    Mine is doing the same thing. I can get audio on any of the inputs - component 1 and 2 and AV 1 and 2, but for picture, just color patterns. Any help would be great!

    The picture has vertical colored lines then within about a minute there is no picture only colored vertical lines, but the sound seems to be ok. This does not make me happy the unit is about 3 years old

    I have the same problem. Picture is messed up and eventually fades to blue screen. Sound is perfect.

    I have the same problem. When I first turn the TV on, the picture is full of static and color lines. After several minutes, the screen turns blue. The sound works fine. I don't have a clue what a solder joint is, or how to fix it. When I inquired at a couple of repair shops, they suggested that I throw the TV away, because LCDs are expensive to repair. I really hate to throw this away, since it's been hardly used.

Use a heat gun to reflow the main board concentrating on the chip with the green heat sink on it, it is a temp fix that last for a few months, if you don't have money to replace the main board

KDL-40XBR5 has vertical color lines no picture .After 50 minutes picture shows back with right side darker. TV was purchase 2008

It sounds like you might have a defective LCD panel. Your warranty for your TV is 18 months. Some of these models the warranty was mis-printed and said only 12 months.

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./.......

Vertical lines on my 40 inch lcd mitsubishi hdtv 1080

Similar problem with an eleven and a half month old LT-40148. Approx. 1 inch vertical banding line on left side of screen on all inputs. After about two weeks, same problem on the right side of the screen.

Fortunately this occurred two weeks prior to the one year warranty expiring.

Called Mits customer service and they referred me to an authorized service center who I happened to have dealt with before.

They picked up the set. The front panel (LCD screen ) had to be replaced. Set was gone for two weeks as parts were not in stock. There was no charge. I hope this screen last more than a year.
