    Hi,

    I have finally decided on the 36ZP48. The PQ was outstanding compared to everthing else instore.

    I'm going to buy this from JL hopefully if they are in stock but was wondering if I would be able to get the TV in the back of a Ford Focus with the seats down?

    I like to pick up my goods as I have brought pre opened/used stuff to many times before and its just hassle trying to get it replaced.

    Is it worth trying to do a deal with them? Free DVD or money off etc..

    Cheers

    Cheers

    I have a couple of little problems with my tosh 36zp48.

    One is that I have found that after changing my settings, they keep resetting to factory standard, which is really starting to annoy me :mad:
    I then checked my parents 36zp48 (i set that up too) and found it had reset.

    Also, I found the other day, that changing the channels kept resulting in a thud type noise coming from the speakers. However, my sky, vcr, dvd etc was off, so it wasnt interference. Any ideas? It wouldnt go away, so I turned it off and on again, and it was fine.

    On 2 occasions, I have also had a really quick glitch on the tv, like its turned off, and then instantly back on, with an almost instantaneous loss and gain of sound and image...
    My friend thought it happened at the same time the boiler started up (its about 15 foot away).

    Any responses greatly appreciated :lease:

    Not sure if I am just overworrying.. or If i have problems.

    Thanks for the reply :)
    Sorry to sound stupid, but what does text module fault mean?
    Could this cause all these problems? Or just some of them?
    Cheers

    Erm how did this get so far off topic??

    Anyways I have found the packaging dimensions and it could be a tight fit.

    Do you think it would be OK to transport the TV on its side (in the box of course)

    Cheers

    Clipz,
    My friend purchased a Tosh 36zp48 and he got inside an Avensis estate on its side no problem.

    Hope this helps.

    Look on the side of the box - it may have markings on it dictating which way up it should be transported. If there are instructions, and you ignore them, then you could be storing up problems for the future. A 36" telly is a large piece of glass - with a correspondingly large shadow mask inside it, don't take any chances. Regards, yt.

    Bearing in mind the weight of the package......

    Personally I'd let them deliver it.....Unlike some it is free.(From JL)

    And it gets to your home in one piece and at their risk.

    Hope you get a good one....I did ...and am very pleased with it.

    Clipz,

    I picked mine up in a Mondeo hatchback, seats down etc. It was a tight squeeze and the boot wouldn't shut fully, so had to be tied shut. If your Focus is an estate, shouldn't be a problem, otherwise I'd say take some strong string in case you need to tie the boot shut! Also, it's pretty heavy. You'll need two people to lift it into the boot.

    Steve.

    Mine came delivered from JL by two hefty lad and a barrow, wouldn't attempt it on my own.

    Got it out the box on my own (just) but I'm 6ft tall and 15 stone (of pure muscle :rolleyes: ) :)

    btw its supposed to be stored the right way up...moving it around the wrong way is not recommended and if anything went wrong they may say you damaged it :suicide:

    Hi, Just joined the forums and will, in the next few days, be buying a 36ZP48. Mainly because of the spec, price and neat facia. Just wondered why you were selling yours and what is your opinion of it. Thanks. lon

    Hi, a shadowmask. Well in laymans terms a shadow mask is a large piece of metal perforated with millions of little holes. It acts as a 'mask' in front of the red, green and blue electron beams to prevent the electron beam from one colour striking the phosphor dots of another colour (ie, red only strikes red, green only strikes green etc). Its the phosphor dots that glow and produce the colours. This perforated metal sheet is mounted just behind the front of the crt and therefore is virtually the same surface area as the front of the crt. It is clipped/fixed into place around its edge with no other support (unlike a a trinitron crt but lets not go there). Consequently, you can imagine that although it is reasonably strong it can flex (and it is designed to change shape/size slightly as the crt warms up) and so if the telly suffers a substantial mechanical blow or is transported incorrectly it could distort. Regards, yt.
