Founded by Tanaka Hisashige, Toshiba Corporation’s roots can be traced back to Tokyo Electronic works. Tanaka was known as “Japan’s Thomas Edison” because he had a knack for coming up with unique technological innovations.
Initially, the company was known as Tokyo Shibaura Denki K.K., a name that was coined in after the merger of Tokyo Denki and Shibaura Seisaku-sho. However, the name was quite a mouthful and, therefore, was changed to Toshiba Corporation.
One of the many inventions that contributed to Toshiba’s popularity was its 2010 innovation — the world’s first 3D LCD TV which did not require glasses.

Toshiba’s website is pretty user-friendly and easy to navigate. Their customer service support section can be found right on the homepage.
What makes their support services so helpful is the fact that they have divided the information according to the products they provide. Following are all the product categories:
- DVD, BLU-RAY, HD-DVD

Each category provides separate information about the product, which include FAQs, drivers and software, how-to videos, troubleshooting assistance, product support, and more.
All this information makes it easier for customers to find out the exact information about a product.
Find Toshiba – Store Locator
The store locator service provided by Toshiba has a different way of providing visitors with the location of a nearby store. Instead of giving all the possible locations of Toshiba stores in the city, it allows customers to find a store that is offering the product they are looking for.
By selecting the product type and then providing your location details, the website will give you an address that will have the product you want.

Toshiba also provides its customers with the location of a service center. All you need to do is enter your product’s serial number and the website will provide you with the address of a service center, where a professional will fix your laptop or any other Toshiba device.
To save you the hassle of bringing your product to the store, the page offers a short guide on how to fix your device. If troubleshooting and downloading a driver does not fix your device, then you can bring it to the service center.

Absolutely will NOT recommend buying anything from the Toshiba brand. I used to buy all my electronics from them, but then the last number of items (TV, portable DVD player, TWO laptops) have all proven to be worthless garbage. Both laptops were returned to be “fixed”. Both returned in the same condition (they were under warranty). Support was virtually non-existent. Now they no longer make laptops (just as well). The sound card quit on my DVD player after probably playing only 5 or 6 DVD’s. Then I was told they didn’t have any replacement cards. DO NOT buy any Toshiba product. The service is a bad as the products.
