Hello,

To me this sounds like the display has a hardware problem, if you have a silver line on the screen, stuck there constantly no matter what you do with the computer, then its definitely a display panel problem. There might be a connection problem on the small control board on the lcd, you might try pressing on different parts of the edges of the display (on the plastic) and see if this changes.

Yes, the problem is fixable, but first you need to find out where is the fault located.
For that you need to boot in the BIOS by pressing F2 during start: if the streak is still there then the defect is in the LCD panel, it will have to be replaced.
If the streak is gone then the defect is caused by corrupted video drivers and to fix that permanently you will have to reinstall Windows.

Toshiba has pretty good support service online. it sounds like the gas in your screen has become unbalanced. If the problem is bad enough you could consider replacing the screen.I got one for $77 on Amazon.com $167 a few years after both SparePartsWarehouse and TOSHIBA wanted $167!.

I have a white strip approx one inch wide down the left hand side of the screen on my Toshiba P100 laptop. What causes this, and is it fixable? Thanks.


Usually this is a sign of a failing LCD or a bad ribbon cable. Try to reseat the cable in the back of the screen. If that doesn't cure it, then I'd recommend looking for a new screen.

Yellow not printing - but only in streaks


Your yellow problem sounds like a bad yellow developer housing. Take the drum out and look at the developer housing, You will need a flash light to do so. See if the roller is solid yellow. Even if it is there may not be any developer left in the housing.
The Cyan sounds like the drum since it gets worse as it prints.
That can also be caused by the transfer belt cleaner. But that normally is the opposite. It has a rainbow sort of streak and it gets better as the machine runs.

Screen has a vertical black band on right hand side


You might have a centering control among the options of your monitor. Look up the manual, or just play with the buttons until you find it.

Hi. i have an LG 42inch plasma, approx 18 months old. about 2 months ago, a green stripe developed down the right hand side of the screen, approx 1.5 inches wide. last week a 2nd stripe the same width...


Sadly, the plasma screen is failing. The green strip is no longer functioning properly and the failures will continue to progress.

If still under warranty, get it exchanged.
