I find the Toshiba 36ZP38 TV a great one. I bought it as a used piece but still, the picture it gives is outstanding. I also find it somehow difficult to adjust. I would have one request could anyone point a place on the internet where I could find PDF file of the instruction manual? I would very much appreciate this, thank you! (read more)

I got this to replace my 21" 4:3 mono, so I was obviously completely blown away by picture and sound quality (once I got over the initial "OMG, it's huge!"). I regularly browse through shops looking at new LCD's and plasma's but I still think the picture on my 36ZP38 is better! (read more)

I've owned this set for 3.5 years, and recently the picture quality is poor - psychedelic effect (imagine the effect that too much compression has on a jpeg or gif, with contour lines and blocky colour).
I called my local repairer who says he has had 15 of these sets in the last few months, all with the same problem. The problem lies in the DFS module. He advised me to call Toshiba and say that in his opinion the fault was inherent at the time of manufacture. I did this, and was offered a... (read more)

After having my Toshiba 36ZP38 28in widescreen TV for about seven months, when things started to go wrong for the second time; first the screen developed a high pitched hum, and soon after that the picture started to curl at the sides, I tried to get a replacement, as this is the second time it has gone wrong. After talking to Curry's customer support, they told me that because I have had it over the 28 day exchange period, it would be up to the store manager whether to change it or send it... (read more)

Recieved my Toshiba 36ZP38 yesterday after my phillips 28" Widescreen Television blew up.
what can i say but WOW.
it is awsome.
one thing i must say though is that it is damned heavy. i used to have a friend who volunteered to give me a lift with it up 3 flights of stairs and now i dont think he likes me too much.
but apart from the bad back today the tv is great.
ps make sure connect the rear speakers, they make all the difference (read more)

I had a fairly old Philips 4:3 29" tv blow up and it was replaced with a Philips 32PW9618 with Pixel Plus & DD.
Lucky me, or so I thought until the delivery chaps half demolished the stand in the street whilst failing to construct it and somehow managed to scratch the TV screen too.
Complained and elected to swap for the Toshiba 36ZP38 for very little extra.
Whilst waiting for stock, that bane of the electronics age consumer, had a good chance to check out Pixel Plus. Well, it's great,... (read more)

Overall, the Toshiba 36ZP38 TV is let down by seemingly obvious issues.
The TV depicts square blocks on satellite channels (despite this not happening with the previous TV set I had).
Even with shielded, OFC cables all-round, my 14 year old mono analogue FST Toshiba produces a better overall result.
Disappointing. (read more)

Some Toshiba 36ZP38 sets have some poor picture geometry issues not helped by Toshiba not setting up the geometry correctly at the UK factory on some sets. On my set Toshiba seemed to have forgotten to set up "TRAP" in the service menu for the "WIDE" picture setting, which results in poor vertical line geometry in 14:9, 4:3 and 16:9. Setting it correctly fixed awful vertical bend on the images. Maybe someone took a tea break and forgot where they were in the setup at the... (read more)

OK, got the tv,vcr,dvd including Toshiba 36ZP38 package from Hispek (tried Robertsons but they are sold-out until September'03) and I am happy, the TV model I have got is the 36ZP38"B" which I am told is UK stock. Don't believe the set itself is any different to the standard 36ZP38, however I do not have any geometry issues, the picture is great. Sound quality is there but I must admit I am glad I have bought the Panasonic DVD Home Theatre system because it definately gives it the punch... (read more)

After owning a Toshiba 2927DB for the last 12 years it was time to upgrade, but to what? After visiting Currys and looking round i found myself drawn to the new Toshiba 36ZP38. After looking around further it was between a Sony and Toshiba. With its picture frame surrond, the Toshiba won the day looking unobtrusive in a small room for a 36". I made my purchase from Robertsons on line and was not disappionted, their service was great with Toshiba delivering and installing the whole package... (read more)

Hmm, where to begin. Three days ago I swapped my 13 yr old 25" Sony for this beauty and the difference is remarkable. About a year ago I bought a Hitachi 32" 100hz widescreen and had to send it back because the digital artefacts were so offputting I couldn't watch it, but no such problems here. The picture is smooth and lifelike, the colours are bold, the contrast is good and there is no digtisation that is noticable to my eyes, no smearing or pixelation at all. The only negative is the...
