  • Setting TV up with Cable

    I have cable TV and have accessed it using my Coby 32' TFTL CDTV for years. This is Model No: TFDVD3295 32' Coby TV with Side Loading DVD player. Now ComCast (INFINITY) has upgraded their boxes to HDMI and sent me my new box and new cable remote. There are only 3 setup codes for Coby TV to access Comcast's HDMI, and they do NOT work. Could you please send me more Setup codes for my Coby TV to access Comcast's HDMI? Hector Lopez 678-362-0999 More...

  • Coby 46" TV

    Received my 46" Coby TV in April, 2013. It has a one year warranty. In August, 2013, when we turned the TV on, there was no picture, no sound, not even snow, nothing! I have called Coby at the # they put on the warranty. It directs you to the website. I have e-mailed technical support and customer service several times. No response. It seems they want you to pay $48.00, to find out if they can help you. Biggest ripoff I have ever seen! Word needs to get out about this company! More...

  • Coby TV

    I have been trying to contact customer support at Coby Electronics for months, now the phone number will only direct me to their website and the customer support will not respond to any of my emails. I had a TV that had to be returned because the parts were no longer available for repair. I was then told that the TV would be replaced but they did not have the model in stock, now I cannot even get a response. I not only paid for the TV, I paid for the repair shop to check it and then paid to have it shipped back. any suggestions? More...

  • Coby 55" TV

    I purchased my Coby 55" TV at the end of January 2013. On April 16th it wouldn't power up. On April 18th I spoke to a supervisor in the Savannah facility and was told that a new TV would be sent out and to use the box to package my old TV in and return it using the return label. After 9 days my return label arrived but no TV. A waited until the on the 28th of April I called to find out where the new TV was and was informed that a new TV wouldn't actually be sent out until the old one was returned. This is totally not the information told to me on April 18th so I asked to... More...

  • Coby TV won't stay on!

    Our Coby TV worked for about 1 year. We bought it through Fry's Electronics. No, we didn't buy the expensive extended warranty. Now the TV has to be turned on with the remote several times (upwards of 25) before it will finally stay on. When you buy a TV it should last more than a year. Why are we as a nation buying JUNK from foreign countries and reselling it here in the US. My US made TVs still play after 10 years. Yes, we take care of our equipment, keep it dust free and on surge protection. COBY=TRASH! More...

  • coby 32 inch tv quits after only 14mos

    Bought this tv post flood due to price. What a waste of money. Never had a tv of any brand break this quickly. Save your money and buy a better brand. Don't havethe cash to run out and buy a new one but could have bought a good quality tv with what this will now cost me. I see from reading other reviews that this is a common problem/complaint with coby tv's wish i had a computer at the time to read up on this but that to was destroyed in the flood. Well hope this saves someone else this headache. Once again I have never had a tv over the past 30 years of buying that has... More...

    As with most of the issues reported, I too now have a Coby 32" Flat TV as a fancy paper weight. It's been used for 6 monthsand it no longer turns on by remote or hand- No picture. The light is nice and all, but when we save to spurdge on a TV, it seems cruel to now no longer even have it functioning- it's wrong... 100% cruel & thoughtless. On top of that, who can afford to have it repaired- it's 6 months.... What can COBY do to help myself and others with this issue??? Pease offer a new TV to replace this one, or something-I probably still have access to my... More...

    NOOOO COBY!!!!!! DITTO- same issues with our 'great deal' 32" FLAT TV.... Hopefully no one else will waste their money on this brand!!! Like most, we really need to watch how we spend our money & this should have still delivered a picture after a few short months . No reset button found, no special tricks to make it work- just a very pretty blue nite light for $300 :( I now completely understand the concept of 'you get what you pay for' from this experience.... so now we're stuck with this tempormental paper weight, for now.

  • Colby TV

    Purchased Colby TV from Kmart. TV died 90 days after purchase. Made a popping sound and would not turn on. I contacted Coby service repair and have been getting the run around for 8 weeks. Initially told me they would send me a . That never happened. Each time I would call I would be placed on hold for a least 20 minutes. Then they decided to send me a part instead of the replacement. Sent part to wrong address. Sent wrong part. Each time another run around. Then they said they would send me a replacement TV. It never came. I believe this is a concerted effort not to honor the warranty.... More...

  • PC Richard

    Bought the Coby TV from PC Richards, it didn't work right from day 1, the sound wouldn't change, stuck on low and the remote wouldn't work, then PC Richards didn't want to return the money saying they didn't have $200 in the register, really? big store like that and no money in the register? I was set to buy a washer/dryer combo and an electric stove, now I don't think so....and Coby is a peice of crap! More...

  • Repairs

    I live in Canada and bought one Coby TV on line through Tiger Direct. After 3 months picture was gone. I called the repair center in Savanah GA, and they told me to ship it for repairs. I send it to them and never ever heard back from them. When I call the same number they will ask all sorts of questions including tracking number etc. but no response. I do not know what to do next. Coby TV and their management close the eyes and ears for complains. Shame on them. Mike More...

  • burned by coby twice

    I bought a coby 40 in. flat screen, four months later the computer board needed replacing. My extended warranty company recommended I take it back to electronic express to trade it for a new one. Four months later the new one is doing the exact same thing...and get this,now the warranty company says they won't replace the new one because when I got the new one my warranty was no longer in effect because they replaced the old one instead of fixing it. Anyway, calls to coby got me no where. More...

  • Same Defect in Every TV

    I purchased a Coby 26" LCD TV at the Veterans Canteen Gift Shop on January 7, 2011. On September 3, 2011, the TV made a "pop" noise, and quit working. I searched on the internet for Coby, and discovered a complaint site where every consumer who has bought a Coby TV has the same defect; a "pop" sound and the TV quits working. Coby makes it nearly impossible to ship the TV back for repairs, asking too much of a consumer, and local TV repair shops cannot fix them either. A TV is a major purchase and should last more than 8 months. The company needs to admit to the... More...

  • All Coby TVs Have Same Defect: Boycott Coby

    It appears that every consumer who has purchased a Coby TV has the same problem: after a few months, the TV makes a "pop" sound, and then quits working. It is as if Coby has deliberately put a defect in their TVs, and refuses to admit to or acknowledge the problem, will not honor warranties or fix the TVs. And what is worse, local TV repair shops cannot fix Coby TVs either. So you will be out about 300 or so dollars that you could have put towards a real TV. I hope that word gets out to every consumer and store not to sell or buy Coby. I just purchased a new TV, and hope I... More...

  • Poor Product Support for TV

    Four issues during 13 months since purchase. 1)Lost remote and no help from to purchase direct or find replacement seller. 2)Agree with other review about slow start up at the blue "Coby" screen - my husband complained about it every day. 3)Volume when using the built-in DVD player was lousy. Could harldy hear it from 7 feet away. 4)And finally, one month after warranty expired the LCD went black- no blue screen, just black but the sound still worked. After reading the two reviews on MeasuredUp, I'm not going to try to get it fixed. I gave up and have now purchased... More...

  • coby tv

    When we bought the Coby Tv, we were pleased with the price but after turning it on we noticed the the blue screen with the word COBY appeared for a good 10 seconds before a channel came on. It is slow to change channels,the sound continues to go up after you have stopped increasing the sound & the channel numbers in the upper right hand corner is so little and so light you never know what channel you are on. I called the help line but they said that it is what it is.No help there.I had a better tv 20 years ago. More...

  • LCd TV repair SUCKS!

    I bought a LCD flat screen TV from RA-LIN discount store in Syracuse, NY. It failed after about 5 months. I called several repair shops to get it repaired. All of them laughed at me for asking. Apparently COBY is famous for not repairing their TVs. They will not send parts to any TV repair shops, but they will not repair it themselves. DO NOT BUY COBY PRODUCTS. More...

I bought a Coby 3yrs ago.I played a DVD then had to slide it over to get it out because of space where I had it. Then I heard a pop and saw a flash of white light. Now I don't have the blue light and won't turn on. If you have a Coby don't move it. Have to go to a thrift store and get something else. I got a tv from a thrift store for $15 ran for over almost twenty years.

I bought two Coby 23 inch TV/DVD players last month. They both quit coming on the same day just make a clicking noise when turned on. Purchased them through Newegg who will not stand by them. I contacted Coby and was told pretty much that it was too bad!

We have a Coby 15 inch LEDTV bought in 6/2011 and so far has worked fine but ever so often it turns itself on.We cant figure out why or how it does this/. It can happen at night as well as daytime. If anybody can solve this problem let me know

Purchased a 22" TV/LED combo model #TFTLCDTV, and after 1 1/2 years I smelled electronic burning. I called their customer service and they told me they wouldn't repair or replace it. I called a local TV repair place and they said it wasn't worth repairing it. I am a senior and cannot afford a new one. What happened to quality and honesty?

We bought a 46' coby tv - beautiful tv, pitcure sound etc.

coby7 says: (6 years ago)
bought a 46' coby flat screen 2 yrs ago October from HH Gregg - no pitcure when called to inquire about problem and phone number to get this issue fixed, the HH Gregg salesperson offered to sell me a new t.v. WOW - I guess people think tv should only last a couple of years. Very dissapointed with both COBY and HH Gregg - will not buy/shop from either of them any longer.

judyt22 says: (6 years ago)
Bought a Coby tv/dvd in January and it lasted about a month. We took it back to the NEX but since we were just over the line they told us to send it back to the Company b/c the customer would get better service than they could. That was a lie. We returned it just as they asked by UPS two months ago and were never advised that they even received it. Now when we call all we get are contractors who know nothing. The phone number for a Coby Rep rings out or voice mail so they are unreachable. Anyone had success with returns. They told us the model we bought is discontinued but that they would send us a tv and separate dvd. Empty promise??

rvbombeta says: (7 years ago)
this product is a real waste of money. we bought a 23" led tv and the screen had problems in just 2 weeks. the technicians were rude and will really go through alot to make it seem YOU broke the product. for the price they are offering their products, you are probably better off with sonething else.

shannon14068 says: (7 years ago)
I thought the 39" was made by Samsung un39eh5003 sold under the name Colby. Now after reading these reviews I don't care to experiment with it as this company sounds pretty unscrupulous after reading these reviews. anyone have a thought on this?

BigB17 says: (7 years ago)
Coby is the biggest piece of shit. Wasted $300 on a black box with a little blue light on it. It only took 2 days for it to stop working.

I bought this tv last yr from Toysrus and after the purchase the manager said the tv was a joke. I wish I had listened and Im really glad I didn't buy two of them as I had originally planned.At least l almost got a full year of usage.I'm bought to do my research now on my next purchase cause l don't have money to throw down the drain.

COBY SUCKS!!! My grandfather bought a 9" Coby telivision for me, and, just like almost everyone else who posted a review on this blog and so many others, 3 months later I heard a loud "pop" sound and the television just stopped working. No picture no sound. All I have is a 100$ nightlight. Take our word for it, folks. DO NOT BY COBY TELEVISIONS!!! OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT COBY HAS MADE FOR THAT MATTER!!! You have been warned.

I purchssed a coby 32 inch tv with payments from k-mart, I added a ditital ,able antena an tv doesn't read chamnels. No channels no.single I look on web more complaients then results. Don't buy the product everyone is saying. Onstead of he instead of here why not not at your local stores. See someone looking at a tv say don't nuy a Coby and Why... Beacause!!!

gaygay says: (7 years ago)
A million thanks to all of you reviewers!! I was going to buy a Coby TV online, tonight. I had a feeling this was a bad move, so I listened to my "gut" and checked the reviews. It's 100% bad, horrible quality and a waste of money. I now have $300 that I would have spent on a 40" piece of trash. Too good to be true***

CobySucksASS says: (7 years ago)
Wow!? I think everybody on this forum has the same problem, as do I, with the 32" coby tv! What a joke right?? I purchased this tv about 9 months ago from frys electronics in las Vegas Nevada, and let me tell you... You think that the COBY customer service is a joke! SO IS FRYS!! On sale, this piece of shit was 360.00$ after tax (est.) and right off the bat, the remote (infer red) sensor is faulty as all hell, the frys customer rep told me to purchase a hundred dollar infer red box, basically just to improve the reader to WORK AS IT SHOUL! We need to make a petition y'all! Not a joke!! If anyone would be interested from this forum to pursue a claim, I know the steps to take.

Recieved 42" for xmas 2011 and it went out in July 12 and after reading this I don't believe that this company is still in business with all of the complains. I did the same thing as calling the company and of course you have to spend money to get it fixed and no promises. Don't spend your time on a Colby because it will cost more in the end, spend the extra and get a better tv.

I purchased a Coby 32" TV and four months later it quit working. Coby customer service is a joke and no local TV repair will even look at it. Nerver again for Coby

My wife and i purchased a coby 40" lcd flat screen tv in june 2011 and have had problems with the tv not turning on with the remote control and also have some kind of mold growing on the back of the set.We cleaned it and it reappears. Called coby customer service[what a joke] to have this problem looked at and got the run around for 3 months before they would ship it back to their corporate headquarters in New York to look at it. On the day of shipping UPS didnt even want to touch the tv in fear of this mold.Did i tell you it ended up costing me money to ship this defective piece of junk back to them.I then called their so called customer service department to find out how long it will take to get my set back.They were rude and arrogant!I would strongly recomend that anyone looking to buy a tv stay far away from coby,you will be better for it!

I bought a 32' Coby TV and it only lasted 6 months. It just stopped working. Something needs to be done about this company!

Shopko is having a great sale on Coby flat screens. Thought I would look them up and see if it would be a wise purchase...NOT! Thank God for this website! I saved myself alot of drama!
