Has been a good television for 3 years
Excellent picture and sound
Switches to stand-by at random
Near useless Toshiba helpline
We have owned a Toshiba 36ZP18Q widescreen TV for just over 3 years now, and it's developed this switching to stand-by problem. This is a common problem according to the people I have been in contact with, and from the reviews on this site. It is not through general wear and tear on the product, it is actually a fault of the manufacturer, so why are Toshiba not helping us all out more?
I'm considering going to Watchdog with this, especially with the backing of so many people. And also, I know removing the teletext card seems to make the TV work again, but that's just not good enough! How extremely frustrating this all is, after having spent so much money on a TV that was meant to last for ages and actually fails after 3 years, conveniently after the warranty runs out. The TV my parents had before this one lasted about 25 years without problems!
So much for modern technology and for Toshiba!
