Question about Televison & Video
It's Toshiba Regza 42RV530U LCD TV
The pictures looks very nice from the front viewing, but once I moved slightly to the side, the color start fading.
Plus, it takes 5 second to turn on the tv after I press the "on" button.
is that happen to all LCD tv ?? or is there any solution?
I have this unit and you can make the set turn on much fast if you go to Options menu, then the Setup menu (sun icon), and the last choice under the Setup menu is called "Power-on Mode". Select it, and change it from "Power-Saving" which is the factory default, to "Fast".

It is unfortunate but "off angle" viewing will compromise the picture especially on larger TV's and LCD. Off angle viewing can come from the vertical axis or the horizontal, as you described. This is clearly illustrated with a laptop computer. Adjust the screen forward and back (vertical plane) and you will see very clearly that you get the brightest picture in a very small amount of range of the screen. Likewise, viewing from the side compromises picture as well.
I also don't believe that the delay is indicative of any problems.

Tips for a great answer:
The 42RV530U is known to develop problems in both the power board and the main board.
You can check out our power board repair service at
and I'd also recommend that you search for 42RV530U at http://blog.coppelltvrepair.com as we will eventually release an article on how to test the board.
Hope this helps.
