Question about Toshiba 27AF44 27" TV

1 Answer

Hi~Our toshiba 27af44 tv has white horizontal lines across the top 6" of the screen. It's been a constant problem only on this tv, not on our other one. The tv is almost 5 years old. Is it worth repairing or is it time to get a new one? Thanks in advance!

    hi you have some capacitors failing in the verticle circuit and will require replacement you would probably spend on125 or so to get the unit fixed at a shop in your area id guess and that can vary in your area if your still happy with the set then id say go for the repair if you have been looking then with the price wars going on now,s a good time to start looking hope this has helped

You have some capacitors in the verticle circuit that are failing they would require replacement to correct this problem est 125 or so to repair
and probably still a worth while fix
but with the price wars for Holidays upon us you you may want to look and see what you can get with just a bit more money
i hopw this has helped

There are white thin horizontal lines across the top 2" of Toshiba 27DF47 TV. Can this be repaired and how much would this repair cost?

Check and replace all the electrolytic capacitors at its vertical output section circuit. There will be five or 6 of them. Replace all.

Horzontal lines across top 2" of screen on both my Toshiba TVs?

it's NOT the "tubes" (the glass picture tube you view) this is 90% of the time a capacitor in the vertical circuitry. A good TV tech can find and fix this issue for probably a little less than $100 per set at the most.
