Summary: The screen went black after 2 years. It was working fine until one day while watching a program it just went blank. I am disabled and on a fixed income, and in order for a tech to come out and evaluate it will cost me $95.00. I got another quote for $250 to $500.00 to fix it. It is a shame, but I would do better to purchase another one. I can't afford to purchase another one, so I am stuck with a black box on the wall with sound and no picture.
Summary: The TV failed after 2 years. I now have to replace the main board. I cant get a quote from an authorized repair facility, or the part from the Toshiba reseller. One repair facility did say they would give me a quote if I gave them $20 to diagnose the issue. Anyway this TV is garbage. Why have 120hz if it isnt 3D? Dont tell me its for sports when the refresh rate from cable is 60hz, and for movies is either 24hz or 48hz...
had a really great, clear, sharp picture, until....it flickered...and just.went.off

Summary: I got this Toshiba tv model 46L5200U about 2 years ago. It had a really great, clear, sharp picture, until....it flickered...and just.went.off. It still powers up, Toshiba appears on the screen and for a moment or two, a picture. Then, it's gone! The sound still works fine, but that's not usually why one buys a tv. I see on support forums that this has happened to others, in some cases in a year or less, generating a $300 repair bill.
Summary: My TV stopped working when I had it only a year and two months. Screen just went black! Tech Support for Toshiba is pathetic to say the least. Most 18year old kids know more about a tv then they do. Stay away from this manufacturer! I have own several products of theirs and the newer stuff they make is crap! God Bless.
Summary: I had this unit for 3 weeks. It was very, very slow to change channels - as long as 3 seconds. So slow, it was impossible to channel-surf. Twice, because I didn't wait for the picture to display, it took 2 minutes to change stations. To prevent this, I had to make sure not to press the channel button until the picture came on-screen. Very frustrating.
