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 Full Review

Written on: 20/07/2007 by edward2910 (23 reviews written)

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 free… Read Full Review

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 away… Read Full Review

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.

Written on: 18/12/2003 by andythebrave (5 reviews written)

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 Full Review

Very interested to read that you first had a Philips Pixel Plus model and then changed to the Toshiba. We have a 36" Pixel Plus model that I am very unhappy with - shimmering and halo effect around moving objects. Fantastic still pictures, best I have ever seen on a TV but very annoying at times when someone moves their head . . . !! Not all the time but enough to complain on a TV at this price. Result is that the retailer has agreed to exchange it without any quibble and we are looking at the Toshiba 36ZP38 as we had a 29" Toshiba for 12 years like you and were very pleased wiht it. Am very concerned that I am going to get the same shimmering with it as the Philips or other problems. You are in an ideal position to compare the two. Any comments?
<br>Much appreciated.

I have already taken the plunge for the Tosh, am awaiting delivery at the moment. Interestingly I too was looking at a Philips Pixel plus 37" plasma as my first choice (I did not notice any 'halo' on the demo). Then thought I'd have the Toshiba and take the wife and kids to Disney Paris with the change.
<br>Your comments confirm my decision, thanks.

Thanks for the information. We are also looking at the Sony 36" too. May go for this model.
<br>Just watched MonstersInc on the Philips and not one bit of haloing or shimmering. Fantastic picture. But last night's Coronation Street was awful. Being picked up next week and taken back. Have to make a decision on the replacement then.

Well, the shimmering / halo effects on the Philips were pretty bad and it looks like you have the same thing with yours. If it happened all the time I suppose you could get used to it but it just smacks you in the face each and every time you see it. Such a shame when the more static images are so good.
<br>
<br>The Toshiba picture is very very good. The very first time you see it with a fairly still image you may notice an ever so slight reduction in ultimate detail compared with the Philips but get it on to the real world of a movie or sports and it is truly wonderful.
<br>
<br>I have not noticed any shimmering at all.
<br>
<br>You get a choice of DNR options 'Off' 'Natural' and 'Active' the last being an automatic variable setting. There is little point in setting this to anything but 'Off' with DVD/Satellite/Freeview/Cable as the video transmission is in the Digital Domain - I find that Active is best with Analogue Terrestrial channels as it will reduce the effect to Nil on fast moving images anyway.
<br>
<br>The fact that the set looks at most like a 32 in model because of the frame design is a huge bonus too.

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.

I have since had an engineer out. According to him, the Toshiba set has digital signal processing and so anything but the strongest of signals will mean that noise that comes with a weak signal will be reproduced in the picture quality, especially with a large tube.
<br>
<br>The picture from the DVD is pretty good - far better than from terrestrial TV or Sky.
<br>
<br>Still very disappointing and I would advise anyone wanting a large screen to go for a 32" TFT LCD or 42"/50" plasma.

“Some Toshiba 36ZP38 sets have some poor picture...”

Written on: 25/08/2003 by slarkins (1 review written)

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 factory!!

Hi
<br>You have given a very detailed review. Setting the contrast to 100% is a bad idea on many sets. It often causes "doming", different coloured patches down both sides.

Hi, my TV is currently with the local repairers and he has now had it for over a week now. The main problem is that the screen start to create vertical lines and then switched itself off after a few minutes when the vertical lines appeared. What could be the cause of this??? Anyone have any ideas out there - Please...??

I have the information about my 36ZP38 original factory settings and what I changed to get perfect geometry even with black bars going down the side of the screen in 14:9 and 4:3 modes. E-mail me to m0sbf@hotmail.com and I will send you the Word document. Unfortunately, you should have noted your settings before changing them as each set will need individually setting up with different geometry settings due to different tube and scan assembly tolerances and you must also use a test card to see the effect of each geometry change.
<br>
<br>I have a high quality JPEG test card I can e-mail you if you have a Camcorder. Just upload the test card onto the memory stick and play through your TV.
<br>
<br>I hope and pray you didn't touch the colour cut off and drive settings as they need special colour temperature equipment to reset and it's a factory job. DO NOT TOUCH UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES TOUCH B,G,R,DRV or B,G,R,CUT settings if you haven't already.
<br>
<br>I also changed the convergence on my 36ZP38 set as it was really badly set up at the factory. This is done by altering the magnet positions on the tube neck - see the service manual from Tosh for information as this is very risky to the set's picture and potentially your life. Optimising the convergence is very fiddly and needs very slight adjustments at a time. You might kill yourself if you touch anything you shouldn't so it's best left for a trained technician. Optimising the convergence gave the biggest improvement in picture on my 36ZP38. The red-blue convergence was quite well out on my set even in the screen centre. Now the picture is just about perfect. You can't even see any convergence errors a few feet away from the tube!
<br>
<br>I also discovered how to cure the screen blotches that can occur on peak white. These are caused by a too high contrast setting. Set the contrast to no more than 70 on this set and preferably somewhere near 67 - 68.
<br>
<br>My set now has near perfect geometry apart from very very slight upward bow on horizontal lines as they approach the screen sides. By the way, you CANNOT correct bowing of horizontal lines with these service menu adjustments. It's just luck of the draw how straight horizontal lines are as that depends on tube and scan assembly tolerances. You can, of course alter the tilt of the picture to compensate for the Earth's magnetic field and its orientation using the geomagnetic adjustment in the main TV menu (don't need the service menu for that)! You can also correct any vertical bowing or any vertical angular distortion on the picture using the service menu.
<br>
<br>E-mail me for more. I am delighted with my 36ZP38 now. The picture is breathtaking, but it's been hard work getting it right. Buying a Plasma would have been a lot easier, even though the picture wouldn't be as good in definition terms and contrast.
<br>

Hmm, well I obviously didn't know what I was doing and made a bit of a mess of the geometry, luckily I didn't mess with the colour settings too! I'm assuming there's no way to reset the 'defaults' so would anyone who has a reasonably straight picture please be kind enough to let me know the values of their geometry settings, namely the 'CSAW', 'VPS1', 'HSC', 'CPAR', 'TRAP', 'CNR', 'PARA', 'WID', 'VPS2', 'VLIN' and 'HIT'. Many thanks in advance for any help.

Press mute on remote.

<br>Television will display mute.
<br>
<br>Then hold down mute on the remote control whilst pressing the menu button on the television's front control panel.
<br>
<br>Current service data will be displayed giving data for both display and geometry.
<br>
<br>An 'S' is displayed in the corner of the screen to show that you are in service mode.
<br>
<br>Screen voltage - press -- on remote control
<br>
<br>With the 'S' on the screen (see above):
<br>
<br>Hold down 'call' on the remote control and press the menu button on the television's front control panel to enter design mode in order to adjust data values.
<br>
<br>Mind you, I've done this and it looks pretty scary - I wouldn't recommend adjusting anything at all unless you're absolutely certain that you know what you're doing.
<br>
<br>Good luck!

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.

Hi
<br>I am not sure about all in one DVD/Cinema systems, but with my set up (Arcam Alpha 10 & DAVE set up), all my components go to the processor and audio sections of the amp respectvly. (DVD, Video, Sky, PS2) from there the picture is cabled to the television whilst the audio is delevered direct to the speakers. Thus when watching programs other than normal TV (bbc1,2, ITV & ch4)through the aerial the TV internal sound is not used. (Because it is vastly inferior than the sound from the Arcam.

Component video as previously stated offers the best picture quality. At present (please correct me if i am wrong) component video outputs are available from DVD sources. Output from SKY is RGB (so I am told) but this is far better quality than Svideo. However as stated a seperate audio connection is required. However it is far better to use a decent Dolby pro logic / DTS decoding system that any inbuilt TV supplied system. At present Sky audio output is only in Pro Logic.

Don't forget that if you use the component connection that you will need to make a separate digital audio connection (this set supports both Optical and Electrical types) as component carries video signal only.

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.

I have bought one of the 36ZP38 and also have the geometry problem, there is a review you can access through the toshiba minisite www.pictureframe2.net and go to awards "what video" award, they also point out that there is a flaw in the geometry. I only get when not at 100% full screen, when u can see slight black borders then i can see the strange slight curves on the right hand top of the picture. This set is a really good tv but the sound is a bit poor and awkard hanging external speakers. I get cab noise from the sub, although the sub is not that bassy. I suppose its like when u buy a camera u pay for the lens, but in this case you get a lot of style, top picture but poor sound - no separate channels for sub or centre speaker.

>3. Yes you can have the channels as single digit numbers.
<br>
<br>Can you confirm how this works? I downloaded a manual from the website (after loads of looking) and it states :-
<br>
<br>"For programme positions below 10 use 0 and the
<br>required number e.g. 01 for programme position 1."
<br>
<br>This is not what I was looking for. If I press 1 then I'd want it to go immediately to channel 1, with no delays whilst it waits for a possible second digit.

Sceptic,
<br>
<br>1. Yes you can connect a dvd player on the component input and still use the three scarts with two of them being RGB. So five inputs in total including the front AV.
<br>
<br>2. You can configure either of the digital audio inputs to any of the five inputs, eg. coaxial input to AV4, which is component in.
<br>
<br>3. Yes you can have the channels as single digit numbers.
<br>
<br>4. No, it does not have p in p.
<br>
<br>
<br>Simon,
<br>
<br>Robertsons were cool although they've been a bit slow getting my new set sorted, they blame it on the service engineer who came out and then did not file a report. I got the set with a 330 dvd player, the latest model, and a 652 video recorder. I see now they are offering the 852 as a video which is a better model and retails for £50.00 more than mine, but as I hardly ever watch it I'm not complaining and the set alone is still £2,000.00 in Currys.

Sceptic.'s Response to 98980_The Evil Tharg.'s Review

Written on: 09/06/2003

Hi,
<br>
<br>Thanks for the review. I have a couple of questions, which I wonder if anybody can comment on.
<br>
<br>1) Is it possible to connect a DVD using the component input (AV4?) and still have AV1-AV3 free, with the 2 RGB's?
<br>
<br>2) Is it possible on the Toshiba to program AV inputs to channel numbers? You can do this on Sony sets i.e. 7 = AV1 + RGB, 8 = AV2+ S-Video etc. Failing that how do you switch between channels/AV inputs and back to channels etc?
<br>
<br>3) Can the Toshiba cope with single channel numbers or does it need a 2 digit channel no to directly jump to a given program.
<br>
<br>4) Does it have a PiP facility?
<br>
<br>I'm interested in 2) and 3) primarily because I'm a confirmed channel hopper!
<br>
<br>Thanks.
<br>
<br>

What I mean is basically how 'true' the picture is from one side to the other. On my set the picture rises or curves slightly upwards on the right hand. It is most noticeable when there is a bar along the bottom of the screen, like during the news, when you can see a curved line instead of a straight one.

Can you please explain what you mean by the geometry being out? I was looking at buying the predecessor to this model, but unable to get stock (except showroom models). I have seen similar comments regarding the older model as well, and want to know what this means.
<br>
<br>I am now waiting for the 32" to become available in the shops so that I can compare the 2 for size, prior to buying.

If you're worried about how the box looks rather than how the picture looks then may I suggest you have your priorities wrong. However, it looks great, very contemporary, I actually chose it because of the small footprint compared to the screen size but I have to say it looks much nicer than a 'normal' tv. As to connectivity, it's good, three scarts, two of them RGB contrary to some reviews and component video in, which I use. The sound is good, it won't match a separates system but it's more than adequate for most living rooms. On the downside, the engineer who came out could not fix the geometry, he could adjust verticaly but not, strangely, horizontaly, so I'm waiting for a new set.
