Question about Televison & Video

Toshiba model 42LX196 LCD has very light grey fuzzy line from top to bottom in center of screen. Does NOT look like a bad panel as the line is not as thin and pronounced as a bad panel would be.

    I have checked this on the main b oard. It is NOT the answer.

  • ndswan Mar 07, 2008

    Not a bulb problem. (Has no buld as such, has back panel lighting)

  • ndswan Mar 07, 2008

    This set is the newer type set, about 10 inches wide with the backlit panel.

  • ndswan Mar 08, 2008

    No lines on the edges, only a very light shaded line about 1/4 " wide from top to bottom in the center. The pix is Not folded in the center. The problem occurs in all modes and with all inputs.

  • ndswan Mar 11, 2008

    You were right! There are 2 other very light lines, one on each side. NOW...What is the solution to the problem?

    Thanks

  • ndswan Mar 11, 2008

    Not under warranty.

  • ndswan Mar 11, 2008

    If I am not mistaken, the vertical circuit would cause problomatic horizontal (lines across from side to side)troubles. Would it be in the horizontal circuit which would cause vertical problems from top to bottom?

    Is the problem occurring in HD modes. There are several reported incidents of people noticing grey fuzzy lines going top to bottom against a green or blue backgrounds. Some people have even had the set changed over, to find the replacement has the same problem. It would appear that there maybe a performance issue with the set if this is true. Go and have a read of what owners of this set have experienced here.

    do you notice the same lines a couple of inches from the edge also?

    With your indulgence eagle, the link I gave had 2 parties state they have this line in the center of the screen, and in one case 2 units still in the store exhibited the problem also. These sets being brand new, it is highly unlikely that any capacitor(s) are "shorted". However in saying that, there may be one fitted back to front in manufacturing(I have seen this before), would certainly follow with the symptom being there on more than one set, and to varying degrees also.
    Maybe I am wrong, but your " Electronic Capacitors" capacitors(I am assuming you mean electrolytic) used these days are often SMD types!



    I have cut and pasted this to here from the link I gave earlier for clarity.

    "I've got a 42HL196 that I've been really happy with until I noticed
    three vertical lines or bars, one appearing almost in the exact middle
    of the screen and two more on either side - although the one of the
    left-hand side isn't as prevalent as the other two."

    and then this

    "Once I got it at home, I examined the picture quality screen and other
    funtionalities. After a while I found this line in the center of the
    screen and 2 more on the edges of the screen. if you are not careful
    you might not notice but I found it, boy I didn't want to go most of
    the time."

    Just what I have read that seems to relate very well to the problem that you are facing.

    I have been high and low looking for a solution for you. I suggest you get back to Toshiba about the problem or have a Toshiba endorsed tech take a look at it. There is probably a service bulletin about for the issue, but they(manufacturers) get a little tight lipped about "defects" Have not been able to find anything from my sources, but this does not say it doesn't exists or that there is not a solution to the problem. If it was there with brand new sets, you would expect there to be!! This is the best advice that I can give... so do I get the FixYa?:)

    cheers mate

The Problem is one or several of the Electronic Capacitors Shorting out in the Vertical Circuit. These Caps look like Cylinders with Two legs soldered to the Board. Thay have a Plastic coating over it in Blue, Black or Gray.I say it would be very inexpensive to fix. I've done many repairs just like this one

    dear Robotek, ndswan says there's only one vertical line at the center of the screen. Whre in the link you have provided says multiple lines scattered accross the screen.

    I think a service manual and schematic should get this problem in no time rather than burning your pocket on a tech if you need them please do ask me... This wont be too difficult to do it yourself..

My toshbia tv modle no.42lx196 no power and red light flashing


Hello
Just unplug the TV from AC power socket, and wait for just 10 minutes. Doing so, if the fault is due to reset; will be rectified. If this does not help you, make sure that there is some short circuit with the inside circuit boards. Normally, if backlight inverter has a short, this type of fault can occur. You must have through knoledge in electroncis and some expereince in servicing TVs to follow. By hard reset [by unplugint it out from AC poser socket] does not help you, and you haven't enough knoledge in electonics, it will be best for you get this TV repaired by any experienced service technican, or by the authorised service center for Toshiba at your town. OK.

My Toshiba 42lx196 will not power up and has a flashing red light that flashes 3 times then off then again and again


I have the same model and the same problem. I was watching it when I heard a loud "pop" and the screen went black and got no response from any controls. I paid $50 at a repair shop to tell me it was the power supply board and would be an additional $275 to fix. I chose to buy another tv but am searching for the part. Here are part #'s - 75003371, PE0071G-1. Some online stores have carried it for anywhere from $70 to $200. The cheapest I have found in stock anywhere is $150. Just google those numbers.

Only top one tenth of screen works. the rest of it is grey.


Screen fault I'm afraid - seen this a fair bit, LCD screen expensive so hopefully you are covered by warranty. If you could find one the lvds pcb which is situated top center on the screen (the one with the drive lead plugged into) can be replaced if you are careful.

On the left side there is a 2 inch line top to bottom (looks neon color and fuzzy) and a small black line in the center of the screen


Is it on every input? Like if you switch to watch a dvd, does it remain? If so, you need a repair. Contact your manufacturer for an authorized servicer.
