Question about Toshiba Regza 46RV525U 46 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

How can we start a class action law suite against toshiba

We purchased our 46 inch tv November 3, 2008, and during the last year the tv has had double shadowing and now the whole screen has turned into blurred lines. We have the tv in an authorized dealer and they said to repair it will cost approximately $1100. to $1400. therefore it is not worth fixing. We noticed that there are a number of people with the same problem on the internet and Toshiba ignores them even though they promise to call back.

I think that the pop you heard was an electrolytic capacitor blowing its top on the picture frame board. If you are able to check this for yourself by looking on the board for the one/s with a bulging top or are a brownish/black colour like something has caught fire. And also in this situation smell can be of great help as it will smell burnt out but PLEASE before putting your nose or anything else in the tv take all necessary precautions against electric shock and discharge any electrolytic capacitors in the vicinity. If you are not able to do this yourself find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

troubleshooting PCB's of certain electronic units require advanced technical skills. no service manual of any source would provide specific solutions. the best you can get are schematic diagrams. if your field of expertise is not related to electronics, i suggest you let the technicians handle the problem for you. every shop have their repair cost qoutations. just be sure to ask for warranty of their repair. goodluck!

It sounds to me that the Main board is causing the problem. But I would get in touch with Toshiba for a warranty repair. It has a one year parts and labor warranty. It makes it a lot cheaper for the pocket.
Good Luck,

SOURCE: I've had my Toshiba 46RV530U less than 2 years,

Diana, did you ever find a solution? My Toshiba (same model) is about 2 years old and it started getting these 4 horizontal lines spaced pretty far apart and a double image at bottom. When I lightly tap the top of the TV, they went away. But now that is not working. Please let me know. Thanks.

4 year old vizio 42 inch tv lcd. While watching tv, the screen started dimming. There is a 4 inch shadow all along left side of the screen and the 1 inch line shadow going down the middle of the screen.


Maybe a power supply or related issue but at 4 years of age the set has reached its life span----parts will be hard or impossible to find.

If you got four years I would retire it and recycle it and then replace it.

REDENT PURCHASE OF TV'S Have green in some spots.


This is typically referred to as a color purity problem and can be caused by two main things. The first cause can be stray magnetic fields which can 'magnetize' the TV screen either by something magnetic begint oo close to the screen or having turned the direction of the TV while it is turned on. If this is a purity issue caused by magnetic fields, it can usually be cirrected by powering off the TV for about 1/2 hour and turning it back on. All tube TVs have build in 'degaussing' circuits to cure just this issue.

If this doesn't fix it the other cause is a shifted shadow mask inside the picture tube itself and cannot be corrected.
