    I have had 2 Toshiba 28ZD26 with the same problem/fault with in 8 months. The problem is when I try and take the tv out of stanby it will either not come on for a few minutes, come on with no picture but sound, come on with picture and sound but I can turn chanels over. With all of these it then turns itself off ( back into standby mode ) all by itself.

    The first Toshiba was a straight replacement for the one I currently have but this time they are sending an engineer out to see if he/she can fix it on site or in his/hers workshop.

    Has anyone else experienced this problem with the tv or is it just a me that it has happened to twice :( .

    If you are still under warrenty phone up toshiba/retailer and tell them the problem they should fix it or swap it. Thats what they did to me.

    Its out of warranty by about 6 months!
    But have emailed them to see if it is a known fault as is easily repairable at one of their service centres.
    Thanks

    Yep Jimmy's right.
    Also...
    Some owners feel it gives a better picture with porgressive scan mode selected for most viewing of non-progressive scan signals as it processes standard PAL singal better than sticking it on 100hz.....

    Think this was discussed in depth at some point
