The Toshiba web site has a place under support about that problem. It's the light engine and if you fill out the serial # and model # the will qualify you for a new one.

I have a vary dark picture except the top 6 inches of the screen. I have replaced the bulb is there a angle adjustment for this

Will probably need the light engine/optic block for this unit; If you can even locate it the cost would be prohibitive on this older unit.
You can buy a new LED or LCD for less.

Vizio VW46L10 TV has a 6 inch dark band across the top of the picture.

Change input device to some other like a DVD player.
Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry. If problem persists, call in a qualified service technician.

Viewsonic N3240WB-E top 3'' of picture has gone dark

From the description one of the backlights behind the display is failing, and cost would not justify the expence, you are further off replacing the monitor

When the screen is dark there are lines that run back and forth across the screen which is only noticable when pitcure is dark immage.

the screen bias needs to be turned down-ehind the front cover which is behind the grille there is a small black square about 3 inch square 6 little knobs sticking out 3 say in small letters screen and 3 say focus, don't adjust the focus just the screen for the coresponding color that shows up when picture is way to do this is darken the room and put it on video input with no signal if lines are white slowly
adjust 1 color after the other counterclockwise untill
lines disappear if only 1 color shows then only adjust the knob with the matching color. this is a very fine adjustment, to much will make your auto focus stop working. check it after you are done

Horizontal white lines across top of TV screen

Hi I had the same problem. Broken white lines across the top of the screen. This is called overscan. You need to go into the Setup menu, other settings. 16:9 overscan needs to be on. Hope this helps.It solved our problem.

If you have the extended warranty, use it immediately. This happened with ours after our 1 year warranty expired and found out it would cost us over $1000 to have it fixed. We've read that RCA used faulty glue that can't withstand the heat inside, causing a mirror to slowly slip over time. Our dark shadow keeps growing and growing.

RCA should have recalled this to fix it for everyone.
