4.0 out of 5 stars Good TV but was almost a disaster, 23 Aug 2011
This review is from: Toshiba 22DV501B 22-inch Widescreen HD Ready LCD TV with Built-in DVD player (Electronics)
We bought this TV for our Son's bedroom so he could have it hooked up to SKY HD and as it came with a built in DVD player he can watch kids films upstairs leaving the main TV free for the grown ups. We unpacked and tested the TV on the day it arrived which was a couple of days before our son's birthday, the TV worked perfectly and was a doddle to set up, sadly when it came to the DVD player we had problems...

The DVD is a slot loading player and it took the disc in but refused to play it, we ejected the disc and tried several others but all gave the same error (and yes we had it in the right way up). Panic struck as we realised that the main Birthday present may need returning with no time for a replacement to show up. After much frantic googling we found a site that advised that the disc may not have fully inserted and that it may need a gentle nudge to lock in place on first use. We were nervous about trying this but using the edge of another disc we gently pushed the exposed edge of the dvd in the unit and it did indeed click into place and a white cover dropped down over the entrance to the slot. The disc loaded and played fine, we ejected that disc and inserted another which loaded without problem as has every disc since. It seems that there is a small glitch on first use.

The TV itself is great and our son is overjoyed with it, it is great value for money and is just the right size for his room.

Can anybody tell me why ALL (not just this one) of the reviews for the Toshiba 22DV501B 22-inch Widescreen HD Ready LCD TV with Built-in DVD player are exactly the same, word for word, as the reviews on the Toshiba 19-inch Widescreen HD Ready LCD TV with Built-in DVD player. Surely something's wrong here. OVER TO YOU AMAZON!
