Question about Toshiba CZ36V61 TV

1 Answer

Toshiba, gray screen with thin lines then dead.

The cable input line was pulled on hard enough to crack the back panel it is mounted to on the tv, now it turns on but there is a gray screen with thin white lines and and no sound then shuts off after about 5-10secs. while the standby LED stays on but is blinking. If the unit is unplugged then plugged back in it will repeat. I have some decent electronics knowledge, I can test components and such. But any suggestions on where to start?

Green and Red (thin lines) across entire screen [JVC 70 G886 HD TV]. Screen went to all green (wide and thin) within 1/2 hour and picture hasn't come back. "Input selection" box is visible and clear...

Try a "hard reset" first by unplugging the set for 30 seconds. and if no help, you may have a problem with the SMPS power supply, it might have a bad capacitor or two by now. Worth repair if engine is good compared to a flat panel.

7inch vertical color lines right side of screen all th time


This website has the service manual ($7.79) with instructions to diagnose the boards. Unfortunately I am afraid that the problem is not a board but the panel itself.

Thin vertical lines in the middle of the picture mean that the panel is gone. Here an example of lines from bad panel in Toshiba LCD:Line Picture. (discussion: Avsforum). Sometimes the lines can be dark or in bright color.

The panel costs $339 (LCD PANEL ASSY).

Because of the price of the panel, the TV is not worth repairing unless under warranty.

Even if the TV is out of warranty call Toshiba and report the problem. As you can see in AVSforum page above the problem is affecting many users.

If Toshiba doesn't offer special conditions on repair (or discount on new), the TV is not worth repairing. Replacement of the digital board will hardly be a solution.

Only if you have wide bands, scrambled or flickering, then the problem is digital board (main board) or panel.If you have the thin pixel lines, then the panel is gone.

I got multiple thin colors on the middle of the screen

My 3-year old 52-inch Toshiba flat panel TV (Model # 52RV53U, Serial # AM409000295) developed a display issue (purchased Aug. 2008, manufactured July 2008). Vertical multicolored lines appeared on the screen just left of center. The band of thin vertical bars is 5.5 inches wide. The lines are about 1/16-inch wide. They are stationary, always exactly in same place. They over-ride any other picture on the screen (no transparency). They are there all time even with no video inputs to the TV after the unit is turned on. See picture #1. The TV works well in every other respect, but, obviously, it is annoying to watch the picture with the color band blocking about 1/6 of the picture.

Further info, pics, comments, and updates on my Facebook page at

I already swapped out the TCON board with no improvement and replugged the TCON board cables with no improvement.

Most likely it is the flat panel tab bond failure (panel made by Samsung). Further updates will be on my Facebook page.

Thin green line on right side of screen when watching through HDMI cable...line goes away when watching through reg AV inputs

You should check if you could adjust the screen size or posistion. If that don't work try using another (newer) HDMI cable. If everything feals go back to your store and claim a new tv. Then it is the hardware inside the tv, you will have warrenty on that.

Line across screen

I have the same problem with my 42 in. The line started to show up randomly about 1 month after i got my tv. The line isn't a line of dead pixels since when i change the aspect ratio or the tv the line moves up or down. I called sharp about the problem and they said it had something to do with my computer but i don't think that can explain why the problem shows up on all my tv inputs.
