Hello, we have owned a Toshiba 27" 27DF46 model for about 18 months that we bought brand new. It has only ever been used as a gaming tv with our xbox 360 hooked to it to play games and watch dvds.
Last week, after it being on for approximately 30 minutes, I noticed that the screen had reduced itself to a thin horizontal line in the middle of the screen. I turned the set off. It wasn't turned back on till maybe 4 hours later (which I'm sure the tv had cooled down by then), and the same problem happened maybe 10 minutes after it being turned on.
Could someone give me some idea as to what the problem could be before I go calling tv techs to see how much it will cost to fix. I want them to know I have an idea of the problem so they won't try to rip me off.
Also if someone could give me a price range that I could be looking at would also be appreciated. I'm not going to pay too high a price for it to be fixed when I could probably go and buy another, better tv.

Re: Toshiba 27" 27DF46
Since your problem is coming and going your vertical output Ic is prob still good at this time, It needs to be resoldered and this should fix your problem the repair tech may want to replace the Ic and this is ok too. Location of IC on board is Q301 Part number 23319832 and costs about 10-15 dollars plus labor.

Hello I have found Gemini's list of codes for a different model remote. I could not find your model but the models I found are identical to each other with their codes, so trying these should be worth a shot. Here are toshiba's codes:

Had problem checked by local outfit called "Circuit Pro"; their analysis was compatibility. Actual answer was that the Toshiba required a better quality input from "any" VHS source. I finally took a "less than perfect" VHS tape with me when I returned the Toshiba TV to the store and demonstrated the problem to one of the TV sales people. He played the VHS tape through a display VHS/DVD player to three different brands of TV. The picture was often "black screen" on a Toshiba, but was merely poor quality on the other two brands. I upgraded to a Sony KDL26M4000 from the Toshiba 26AV502U.
If you have a HDTV then you need to change the resolution to 720i or 720p to support the XBox 360 HD video. If you have a standard TV (non-HD) then you'll need to change your XBox 360's video settings to non-HD. The problem sounds like your mixing up HD video signal. I really need more info about your TV. Is it HD? Or regular?
We had the same problem, for the same model of Toshiba TV. Had it repaired yesterday. Turns out the problem was the power supply (P.C.B).
The total cost was $192.66 Canadian funds (taxes and labour all in). Our model was 6 years old, buts its playing like a brand new unit now. Hope this helped ...... Good luck
