Toshiba lcd tv question
To start out earlier this spring we purchased a $600 42" toshiba regaza lcd tv. well this morning I turn it on and the screen is completely green(with lines) and the bottom probably 2" of the screen is purple(with lines)does anyone know what could be wrong?

Are you using an analog or HDMI cable.
Could be a loose connection at the box or TV. Or even a bad HDMI cable?

our plasma tv in the other room is getting all the channels and it's the only one that has a hd box from the cable company...I'm guessing the toshiba one has one inside of it? not sure...if the lcd is getting a picture on the hd channels and no others, could it still mean the lcd screen is bad?
no hdmi cables...just the standard cable

If the menu looks bad also the display or display driver board.

If some channels work fine it must be an issue with the box. First, switch the box with one from another room and check it out. If the picture works fine on regular channels then you know the box is bad and call your cable company. Make sure they dont try and bill you if they have to come out. They can be sneaky about doing that.

just a little update...had absolutely nothing with the cable hook up or anything and after spending a long time on the phone toshiba is refunding the full amount for the tv...i guess toshiba supposedly never had a problem like this before. so with the money were getting for the tv probably looking at a sony one
