Toshiba recently discovered that a small, isolated lot of panels which was incorporated into its 46LX177 LCD TV has a slight imperfection in its performance which generally is not observable under the default picture settings. However, if you changed the default picture setting, specifically, setting the back light setting to the lowest level, you might be able to observe a horizontal bar scrolling down through the screen. This phenomenon is visible if you are looking at a light-colored background. Nevertheless, if the 46LX177 that you purchased has one of these panels, Toshiba would like to repair your television with a new panel, free of charge.
To determine if your 46LX177 is one of the few containing this panel, you will need the model and serial numbers.
To determine the model number of your television:
- Please check your sales receipt.
- Look on the back of the unit for the TV Label.
- Please check your owner's manual to see if you recorded the model number.
To determine the serial number of your television:
- Look on the back of the unit for the TV Label
Enter your serial number in the dialogue boxes below and then click the "Check My Television" button, and you can determine if your 46LX177 LCD TV is affected.
