    I haven't changed anything about where the tv is located in the room or placed any new electrical items in the vicinity. So, are you saying that something that used to be okay next to the tv is now causing a problem? Any suggestions as to what kind of an electrical item might cause this (other that an electrical fan or humidifier b/c neither of those is near the tv)? These are the electrical things around the tv: dvd player, amp, clock, digital convertor box (hardly ever used), video game units (not usually plugged in), box for changing what plays on tv (you know, the one you plug everything into and then push the right button when you want to use the video game system or the dvd player etc), overhead fan/light.

    try unplugging each device, one at a time with the tv playing. some times electrical devices (for whatever reason) create interference as they age

Toshiba 52HMX95 DLP has weird gray think line


DLP TVs work projecting light throught a tube covered with mirrors, called the light tunnel.

The gray shadow it is something in the middle of the light tunnel, probably a mirror that has gone out of place when you moved the TV.
