Delzrx's review of Toshiba 32ZP18

Good Points
Picture quality/modes

Bad Points
Weight, although this will stop anyone from stealing it

General Comments
I've owned the TV for 3 1/2 years now, and I have had no problems up until now. Like many others on this site, I suffered the dreaded 'stuck in standby' fault. I called out a TV engineer who instantly fixed it by removing the PCB which controls the Teletext (I never use this anyway). This PCB is 65mm*85mm and has a blue connection strip on it numbered 1 to 15, not sure what the part number is, but on the reverse it says R-1786.


My TV is now working perfectly, minus Teletext, and the call out cost me £40.

I can vouch that this solution works a treat - thanks a bunch for saving me the hassle of getting that TV repairman out.

I found this review very helpful because...
<br/>Absolutely spot on! thanks
<br/>My TV was not responding to the remote control, I thought something was up with the IR receiver, then after switching off the TV (model 36ZP18Q)on main switch I could no longer switch it back on, it just stays in standby.
<br/>After removing this card with numbers R-1786 on one side and PD0267 on the other, the TV now works fine minus teletext.
<br/>I have now put the card back in and is still ok, so maybe a loose connection?

Thanx Delzrx. A friend was getting rid of this tv due to stand by problem. It ended up at my house. Read your review, removed pcb board, hey presto fully working tv for free. Removal is exactly as Delzrx says and anyone can do this I'm a near retirement age woman.
<br/>Thanx again Delzrx.

I had a Toshiba with a similar problem years ago, and had it "repaired" several times until I gave it away. I don't know why, but I bought the 32ZP18 and it developed the problem you described. I have taken the card out and now it seems to be working fine.
<br>Fantastic!!! Thanks. It's a pity the manufacturers don't take any notice of their customer problems. They might actually make better TVs.

Thanks Delzrx, this worked a treat and saved me the £40 - if I'm ever in Rotherham, I owe you a beer or three.
