Summary: Bought our Toshiba 55TL515U just under two years ago. It went off yesterday and won't turn on. Called Toshiba. It's out of warranty, and any technical service would cost. They did tell me I need a new main board. Paid little over $1500 for TV.

Summary: I have a 55 inch Toshiba 55TL515U Television bought a year and a half ago. It has two huge bars running down the middle of the screen and the technician that Toshiba gave me the contact info for says the panel is bad and to add insult to injury there is no replacement panel available even if I...
Summary: The warranty on the TV expired on 11/17/2012 - one year after purchase. Yesterday the TV decided to start shutting itself of and turning itself on randomly. Also, after being on for more than 30 seconds it stops responding to any commands - no volume, no menu, nothing.
Summary: We purchased this tv just after Thanksgiving of 2011 at our local Sears. It would not connect to the internet. When we tried, the tv locked up and we had about a 20 second window to get it unlocked after we turned it off and back on. We returned it the next day for a replacement.
Summary: I got this for $1300 including taxes & shipping on tigerdirect.com. Pros: came with adapters to be able to still use the old rca & component cables. Has a 3.5mm audio jack & vga port so i can plug my computer directly into it. Very thin lightweight tv, i lifted & set this up all by myself.
