Re: start-up

This could be a problem with the on switch contacts becoming intermittent.They could also be wearing out from use. You need to open the television and check out the switch. You can try resoldering the connections and using contact cleaner to clean up the action if it is not a electronic switch. If it is a electronic switch try using contact cleaner on switch connection points to clean the connectors. Try tracing the connection on to the main connector and clean up that connector the same way.also check for possible faulty components in the circuit path that could be causing the problem. Like bulging capacitors and bad solder joints. If all this does not resolve your problem, then you should replace the switch if you can.You can check out the G.E. website for your make and model number of television, plug in the numbers into the customer service section and check out the frequently and troubleshooting sections and see if other people have had this problem with their televisions and had the problem solved. I hope this helps you with your problem.

To reset Toshiba TV:

Start by pushing the "Menu" button on the remote and going to the "Set-up" option.
Then scroll down to the "Installation" option and press the "Enter" button on the remote.
A new set of options will appear. Highlight "System Status" and click "Enter", then scroll over to "System Information" and press "Enter" again.
Use the left and right arrows to get to "Factory Defaults." Enter your four-digit PIN code or press "0" four times if you haven't set it.
Then select "Yes" and press "Enter" again.
The TV will turn off. Unplug it and then plug it in again. The TV will then be reset.

Hard to get started when powering up to watch.

definitely, something wrong with it. TV shouldn't take more then a few seconds to start, I suggest, while it still under warranty, give Sharp a call to get it fixed.
