Question about Toshiba Regza 46RV525U 46 in. LCD HDTV
When i turn my toshiba 46" tv on theres one thin black line running verticaly down the screen about 4 inches from the left hand side, but after a couple of minutes the line disapears! the tv is an ex display model but is still under warranty. please can anyone help?
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./.......

Luckily, I purchased an extended warranty. The problem had progressed to the point that there was a constant thin red line on the right side. The repair guy came out and took our TV to their shop for repair. They called a couple days later and said the LCD panel was bad and not cost effective to repair. Now, I'm waiting for them to "research" the market for TVs with similar features and will cut me a check so I can buy a new one. For reference, the TV was a 1.5 year old Toshiba Regza 46" 1080P LCD. It had the 10 bit panel and the best picture I have ever seen on an LCD TV. Since this is looking like a common problem, I will not get another Toshiba.

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.

My 2 1/2 year oldToshiba 46 inch Regza has two vertical lines that almost fade away (but not completely they are both about 4 inches from opposing sides after an hour one is blue and one is red). Fixed problem with a 58 inch Samsung Plasma, much better picture and I bought the darn extended warranty, hopefully I won't need it.

I have a "Home-fix" for you, you should watch this you tube video on how to repair a symptom such as yours even though it is a sanyo tv the fix is pretty much the same for your television and may save you oodles of money!
