Default Problem with A3: Standby to Power on lockup

Hi Guys, i am having this issue with my A3. Rather randomly, when powering the A3 on, it locks up while displaying "Welcome" in the display. I get no signal to my tv, nothing. I cannot power it down, nor open the tray, nothing! I have to unplug the power cord and re plug it.

After re plugging, it will boot up fine for about 2, 3 maybe 4 times, but then again, it locks up and have to unplug.

It has the latest FW installed, and when it does boot up, everything works great.

Just FYI i cannot take it back to get a replacement, i bought it in a BB in Miami and i live about 4000 miles away.

Any ideas? or users with the same problem???

Thanks in advance.

Isn't there another BestBuy around? You don't have to take it back to the same store...

Have you tried leaving it unplugged for an extended period of time? If it's a solid problem, you'll probably have to contact Toshiba.

Bill thanks for your answer. The thing is i live in Argentina, so that is why i can not take it back!! I left it disconnected for about 4 days, and now i can not reproduce the problem. I hope it stays this way.

Argentina? Okay, that makes sense...

Glad to hear you can't reproduce it. I bought the Sharp Blu-ray player last week, and it froze on my 15 minutes into 'CE3K' and lost all sound. After a reset, it never happened again.
