Question about Toshiba 52HMX94 52" Rear Projection HDTV

Toshiba 52HMX95 DLP has weird gray think line

I have a toshiba 52HMX95 DLP HDTV that i bought about 2.5 years ago. Just recently I noticed that the tv has about a 1 inch think gray line that goes down the middle of the screen. Everything else works perfectly and this line is very hard to see when there is a dark picture, but when the picture is bright you can clearly see it. It almost looks like a shadow of some sort. We just finished moving and I didnt notice it until after we moved, so did something maybe happen during the transport of the tv? Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Thanks so I'm assuming this is something I cannot fix and I need to contact the repair center?

DLP TVs work projecting light throught a tube covered with mirrors, called the light tunnel.

The gray shadow it is something in the middle of the light tunnel, probably a mirror that has gone out of place when you moved the TV.

    Yep, unless you did similar repair jobs before, for the integrity of your TV, it is better to call a technician, as you will need to take apart the TV to inspect the light tunnel.

One thing is that unless it is usb you should always have the devices powered DOWN before connecting them via" wire electric data cables". it only takes 3 static volts of electricity to damage a circuit board. when you zap you buddy when you wear sox its 20 to 30,000 volts of static electricity so 3 volts would not be known let alone felt or seen. Power down and you will be well not you .
