Question about Toshiba 36A40 36" TV

Toshiba 27" 27DF46

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.

Thanks :)

The other thing that most often causes this is an intermittent/leaky diode D402 located next to the vertical IC heatsink.

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.

It could be that it is a pre-owned game, I have had problems with pre-owned games, and have bought a new game that has not been used. Also I have just recently bought that game and had to do and update to the xbox 360 when trying to play that game, you should have got a message to update the system when trying to start the game.

My new xbox will no longer play black opps. i have tried 3 different disc's and they all say disc unreadable, wipe with a soft cloth. its the only game that does this. i even just went and bought a brand...


I had the exact same problem, it is a problem with the xbox. Since it is only three months old it is under warranty, go to xbox.com/support and file a claim describing the problem. They then will have you send in your xbox and you should get a new one in about three weeks, best of luck.

Are other games working correctly in your Xbox 360?

Is this a brand new disk? or did you buy used?
if used, check for major scratching on the disk. If scratched heavily you can try to buff out scratches with a lint free cloth, I have also heard that toothpaste could be used for buffing out scratches, but I would only try this as a last resort.

If other games work fine in your Xbox, it's probably the disk. Make sure you have the XBOX version of the game (and didnt accidentally grab the PS3 game instead or something)

If it is the right version of the game and brand new and not working, call Activision and tell them you have a bad disk, if it's brand new I can't see how they wouldn't replace it. Or just return it to the store.

Your Xbox's disc drive is most likely broken. This happened to me about a month ago to a used xbox I had bought. You should call Xbox Live Support. They are very helpful.

Xbox 360 won't read some brand new disc and frezzes during game


Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart, I repair 360's for a living and it sounds like yours is going to red ring on you. If it is only 6 months old then it is under warantee and you should either take it back to the store or call 1-800-469-9269 and they will ship you a box to ship it back to them. If your warantee is void then you can repair it using the guide found here http://llamma.com/xbox360/repair/Xbox-360-error-codes.htm I hope this helps you. Please take a little time to leave me feedback as I am new and am trying to gain a good rep.

Lost 360 arcade games


id you bought the games you can re-download them over again for free. If its happening because you got a new 360 hard drive and all then recover your old gamertag and then re-download them.
