Interestingly, I just got THIS reply on the Toshiba forums, so it looks like I'm not the only one......


"Yes, I am suddenly having EXACTLY the same problem on my Toshiba 40L3400U as well, purchased new on 4/11/15.

"I routinely use YouTube without problem; then abruptly yesterday (11/14/2015, 11pm CT) I experienced the same symptoms:

"1. Go to home screen, click on YouTube button.

" 2. Screen goes dark for about 10 seconds, then -- instead of YouTube splash screen -- I get a white screen with message "Unable to load.... [followed by YouTube link]"

"3. Likewise, Pandora will not load. [N.B. -- I can't check Netflix, not a member.]

"4. I am getting a Strong signal on WiFi, and Network Connection Test confirms "Success!"

"5. All other devices in my household are accessing the Internet without problem via my modem/router.

"Here's what I tried, all without success:

"1. Unplug TV, wait 10 seconds, plug in and try again.

"2. Turn TV off and on... many, many times.

"3. Reset TV to factory settings, then reinstall WiFi by entering settings manually.

"4. Try to manually change DNS settings (I tried 8.8.8.8, per a similar problem on Samsung TV forum.)

"No luck. **I don't think it's your motherboard: it would be odd that yours and mine should fail simultaneously!**"

No idea what you're talking about, I have no credit card on file with them. And it's not even remotely a scam.

In order to activate Roku, it now requires you to enter a credit card number. It may not have been that way when you got it, but it is now.

Regardless, that is irrelevant to the issue with my TV, so it is moot.
