Summary: like everyone else the mother board broke 3 months later I got the T.V Now i'm on the second mother board. I hope this works for 5 to 6 years.This one out of my pocket now $309.00 Cant stand Toshiba right now. I've never had problems with their products. What's up with this T.V? Customer Serv is sitting in a lobby on a college campus with no care in the world until my T.V gets fixed I'm going to knock this T.V until mine is fix3d.
Summary: Mine couldn't be turned on after about 1 year normal use. The motherboard got replaced and now it keep rebooting randomly and repeatly and every time takes forever to back to "normal". I won't buy any Toshiba stuff for good.
DON'T DO THE SOFTWARE UPDATE - Faulty Product With Terrible Customer Support

Summary: Bought this TV in April and it has been faulty since June when I installed the software update. It started with the TV turning on and off by itself once or twice. I thought it was just a quirk and didn't pay it too much attention but it kept happening. I called Toshiba about it in July and they said I only had 30 days of support for software issues and then it's $35 for their support. I told them that I didn't install any software to the TV it was THEIR SOFTWARE.
Summary: TV failed on me after 2 weeks. Contacted Toshiba Support and was told they would send someone out to repair within a week. No one ever showed up, was told they had to order a part without ever looking at the TV. Then told part was on backorder and heard nothing for 2 weeks, so I decided to just return the TV.
Summary: My previous Toshiba TV broke down in 6 months...they could not find replacement parts to fix for over 3 months and then they offered me a refursbished TV or reduced Toshiba credit. So because their TV did not work I am being asked to repeat my mistake and buy another stupid Toshiba TV or replace it with a lemon that someone else rejected!!
Summary: The Toshiba 47L6200U I recently purchased is difficult to program. There is no included user manual, only a very basic set-up sheet. There is a 200 page user manual only available online. However, the manual uses terms/letters without defining their meaning and use. A major gripe is the apparent inability to disable the TV speakers so that one controller can operate the volume of an added sound bar.
