General Comments
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!

Totally agree! Bought the TV almost 3 years ago and we have the same problem in that it doesn't turn on fully the first time (no pic just the red light indicates that it's on). It takes several/hundred presses for it to switch on and then when it finally does there's a short time until the volume cannot be change and the TV graphic displaying the channel no. sometimes remains on the top right hand corner of the screen. I also suspect that once the warranty expires it has conveniently stopped working properly.
