Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4467 Notebook
A soon as you can, connect the laptop to an external monitor and switch to that monitor when connected by holding down the "fn" key and pressing F5. If the external monitor displays normally with no colored band, then your laptop's screen needs to be replaced.
If the same colored band appears on the external monitor, it means that your video chip/controller on the motherboard is about to fail, at which point the screen will go black and stay that way. In this scenario, you need to have the chip on the motherboard replaced or the motherboard itself.
Here's hoping your laptop is under warranty still. If it's not, go to eBay and type "Toshiba Laptop Motherboard Repair" in the search window. Hopefully, you can get a flat rate there of $125 to $175 for the repair.
Best of luck to you.
