    I have Toshiba 56WHO8B which is always switched off at the set.

    However next day when switching the set on, the light comes on then I have to use the remote control to choose the channel that I want to watch.
    For the last two years the TV would come on instantly, should I be expecting worse problems?

    It is something new and I am a little concerned.
    Thank you.

    Are you sure you're not imagining that the set used to come straight on previously.

    Most sets do not power up immediately after switching on at the main button. This is a design feature; if there was a power cut, and the power was restored while you were out - the set would not switch back on.

    No my friend, when I switched on in the morning I would have to rush to find the remote because the volume was too high from the night before.
    However if it is a design feature in some models, it can't be a serious problem. Thanks anyway.

    Hi all. :)

    Allan238, I have had a similar problem with my Hitachi (a 4 year-old 32" widescreen model), and have heard about other brands and model having it too.
    It is usually due to a dry joint in the power supply.
    I'm affraid the problem might get worse (it did in my case) as time goes by.
    I had it fixed a couple of weeks ago and it cost me £76 (inc a loan-tv) and took about 4 days to have it back. ;)
