Your symptom sounds like a faulty capacitor in the vertical deflection circuit.
What you are seeing is called vertical fold-over.
If you want to fix this yourself and are handy with a soldering iron, it is not that difficult. Just look for a 1uf capacitor near the vertical IC. The vertical IC will be a black IC with straight legs mounted to a heat sink, generally in the center of the circuit board.
Note: Be careful when working on a television as the CRT and other capacitors can hold a charge that can be very dangerous.

I would recommend that you contact a local service center and see if you can get a quote for the repair. I would normally charge between $120.00-130.00 for this type of repair. The cost may vary depending on where you are located.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

There's 4 horizontal white tiny lines appear on screen to make the picture become 4 equal parts from top to bottom with many horizontal lines. My TV is Toshiba Lcd(40RV52U)


You have failure/weakening in the vertical section , the retrace lines appear due to the change in the freq.
Check out small value capacitors in this section. confirm by shorting parallel with the right polarity. Unless you are familiar with electronics please do not attempt unless with help. the fault is not very serious and could be attended with low expense.

I've had my Toshiba 46RV530U less than 2 years,


Diana, did you ever find a solution? My Toshiba (same model) is about 2 years old and it started getting these 4 horizontal lines spaced pretty far apart and a double image at bottom. When I lightly tap the top of the TV, they went away. But now that is not working. Please let me know. Thanks.

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.

1. Check the TV's horizontal and vertical hold. 2. If there is a VCR connected: Shut off the VCR. If the problem clears up, the VCR is not properly ?fine-tuned.? Turn the VCR on and troubleshoot the VCR problems. 3. If a converter is connected to your TV and VCR: The VCR needs to be on channel 4. VCR may not be ?fine-tuned? to channel 4. Locate and adjust the fine-tuning mechanism until the picture comes in clearly. The <3/4> switch may be in the wrong position. Locate the switch on the back of the VCR and set it to <4>. 4. Check the fine-tuning of your TV. good luck :-)
