Question about Toshiba Regza 46RV525U 46 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Toshiba 46RV525U are JUNK!

I bought this TV 13 months ago. Unfortunately for me, 20-days past warranty. Last night I noticed a dark vertical line about 4-inches from the right side. It goes away after the tv (46rv525u) is on for 20-30 minutes.

I called the store (Vandries) who put me in touch with the local Toshiba service repair shop. They told me to call the 1-800-631-3811 number and argue with them because they may fix the TV even though it's 20-days out of warranty.

So, I called them and gave me the run around. I told the tech about all the problems reported online about this TV. I read this message forum here with 7 complaints of the same exact problems as I'm having, he laughed and said "that's pretty good if it's only 7", WTF?? How unprofessional is that?

Then I demanded to talk to a supervisor who said I misunderstood the tech guy. Here I am left holding the bag on a $1,200 TV that is only 13 months old and has LCD screen issues that they won't cover because I'm 20-days past warranty. And that comment just proves how unprofessional they are.

Stay away from Toshiba. Toshiba LCDs are junk, customer service is awful and they don't care about you. Google search "vertical line 46rv525u" and you'll learn this is a common problem with Toshiba.

The LCD panel is defective. They are expensive. Call customer service and they may extend the warranty for you if you complain enough.

Toshiba HL 52167 HDTV has vertical lines on each side


It appears to be a bad panel. The cost of a new panel exceeds the cost of a replacement TV with the same specifications. If you have a warranty, use it before it expires. If it is out of warranty, I recommend that you complain to Toshiba that this is a common problem and ask for factory warranty consideration. Good luck.

Vertical line on my 46" toshiba lcd tv


The only logical solution for the problems people are having for the toshiba regza's tv's is to get into a class action law suite..., they contiue to sell tv's with defective parts and refuse to help the customer that spent large cash to find out they last if your lucky 2.5 years, they are junk and anyone with one will soon find out./.......
