Troubleshooting a Toshiba Regza

Toshiba is one of the world's largest producers of consumer electronic devices and components. LCD TVs usually have higher resolution than other TVs and the picture tends to be much sharper. However, the viewing angle on the flat screen LCD is a bit more limited. If you experience problems with your Toshiba Regza LCD TV, there are a number of troubleshooting steps to run through before calling in a service repairman.
