    I don't usually bother with stuff this small, but I will look at these
    for customers I've had for years.

    I have two MD13P1s in the shop that shut down within a couple of
    seconds of start. The raster looks fine before shutdown occurs.
    Customers say sometimes it will run for weeks with no problem. The
    other one is now running on the bench. I wouldn't ordinarily bother the
    group with this except there is quite a pattern developing on these.

    I have another customer who picked one up from my shop a couple of
    weeks ago (same complaint, although it's a 14" flat version) that
    didn't show a problem in the shop, but is now shutting down again. I
    did some checking on the web, and found a post from a guy who has two
    with the same problem, and one was already replaced in warranty for the
    same problme, so he's had three with the same problem! Cut and pasted
    from the web:

    Subject:Toshiba MD13P1 Turns itself off

    I own two of these tv/dvd sets, they are in different rooms and both
    have the exact same problem. It started suddenly turning itself off
    instantly after turning it on. I could not figure it out so I took It
    back to the store where it was purchased and they traded it in for a
    new one. I thought the problem might just be a fluke and I liked the tv
    set so I also bought another one for a separate room. Now both of the
    new ones, (3 mo. old) are doing the exact same thing. I turn the sets
    on and they instantly turn off, I've tried unplugging them and plugging
    them back in, and they stay on for about 15-20 seconds and then turn
    off again, then I try it again and they turn off instantly.


    I suggested to one of my customers that he contact Toshiba and see if
    there is a known problem, and of course "they have never heard of this
    problem. I'm half tempted to order the schematic for this model, but I
    really only do these loss jobs for good customers. Anyone here run
    across these?
