Repair of SD-43HTSU "Hello...Protection...Goodbye"

John L. Addis, Amazon
28 December 2005
  • Summary: The Toshiba SD-43HTSU and at least one other Toshiba system has a high failure rate. The unit comes on, displays "Hello...Protection...Goodbye" and shuts off. Search of the web and a call to Toshiba both blame the problem on C27. For those not electronically minded, that is a Capacitor number 27.

  • Summary: I should have read these customer complaints before purchase the Toshiba SD-43HT about a year ago. I'm now end up with "Hello...Protection...Good-Bye" Club. This "Protection" problem keeps DVD automatically shut off every time you try to turn it on.

Important info for people with the

Willy, Amazon

  • Summary: Toshiba will fix the problem for free. (...) I give this HT system 4 stars because it gives a lot for the money. The region-free trick that just adds to the value. The sound could be a little clearer, and there's a very low hum when listening with headphones.

"PROTECTION" PROBLEM

David W. Swindle, Amazon
19 June 2005
  • Summary: The bottom line is "this is a piece of junk." Last night my wife and I watched a movie, but this morning, the machine will not work. After you power up, a word flashes across the display that says "protection." This is not covered in the owner's manual nor will Toshiba help you.

Hello...Protection...Goodbye

Amazon Customer, Amazon
19 March 2005
  • Summary: As others have mentioned, this machine fails with no warning. Mine failed after less than 40 uses. Toshiba's reply was essentially, "Have a nice day." This is a known problem and Toshiba could care less. So scratch Toshiba off of my list. I will not buy their products again.

Good while it lasts -- but they don't last

Kevin M. Hebert, Amazon
16 February 2005
  • Summary: Up until a couple days ago I would have rated this home theater system at 4 or 5 stars. It has component video out and DVDs look great on my HDTV set. The sound is pretty good, not very loud however. The subwoofer puts out very weak bass but the surround sound works well.

Same Protection Fault

Karen, Amazon
6 November 2004
  • Summary: I am not sure that it lasted more than a month. I don't use it much and am so disappointed that not only do I need to get a new DVD player, but I need a new stereo receiver since I replaced my receiver when I got this system. I will have to look into that class action lawsuit.
