Re: no picture

There is a button located on the back of the DVD player and where the screen closes. My button was stuck in the down position (should be up when screen is open). I used a small, pointed object to release the button and the picture came right back! Hope this helps! -Kris

For some reason, my DVD player just started showing up in black and white. Also, when I select the "source" on my TV remote, instead of showing the option "AV" for the DVD player, it...

Select AV as your source and that should cure the problem as long as you have the video and audio cables connected to the right inputs. You could also use an S-Video cable instead of the video cable for better picture quality depending on your TV model (assuming it has a S-video input). Your owners manual(s) will probably have diagrams for you to follow.

Only sound and No picture in Toshiba DVD/VCR combo


maybe your connections are wrong.

The yellow pin is for video, while the white and red pin are for audio left and right.

So, your wires will be connected to video and audio "OUT" from your player and connected to "IN" respectively on your TV.

That's how it gos. Its a input and output law. The Player will be sending out the pictures and sounds (OUT) and the TV will be receiving from the other end (IN).

Its as simple is that. But if there is still no picture, then cross check your video wire (yellow), maybe its bad.

Good luck.

Sudden loss of picture, sound comes though ok

It sounds like the exact same problem that my son recently created. The only solution I've determined is to reset the player to it's default settings. Although it took a little while (since the video display was not present), I finally found the right combination of buttons to push on the remote and now the problem is fixed. Insert a disk, then push the following buttons: Stop, Stop, System/Menu, >, >, >, v, v, v, v, v, >, OK

After the above sequence of buttons, the main player screen should reappear on the tv.

All of a sudden quit working

most portable dvd players arent meant to stay plugged in for long periods of time because they overcharge the batteries or cause damage to the players power supply regardless of how expensive they are .

However you can get a dvd player unit that is mounted in an overhead console (from a car stereo outlet that will last go to this site to see examples: - 40k

Sound lags picture

This can some times be caused by VBR audio encoded files as opposed to CBR audio some standalone DVD players will exhibit sound lag in this case. It is a good idea to re-encode the VBR to CBR audio this usually solved the problem.

Although this is usually with DivX (AVI) files that have been re-authored to DVD-Video I suggest that you convert all audio to CBR to avoid any such errors.

this conversion process it a bit of a long way around I know, but it does work!

1) Open video in VirtualDubMod or VirtualDubMP3 (if there is an index error this can sometimes fix it for you.

2) Ignore the error warning that the video contains vbr audio.
3) Extract audio as mp3 ("demux" in VdubMod or "save as wav", then rename to mp3 in VdubMP3).

4) Convert audio to wav with CDex

5) Open original video in VirtualDub, choose "direct stream copy" for video and "Wav audio" with "Full audio processing" with cbr mp3 compression (and interleaving with appropriate delay if out of sync) for audio.

You could also use several other methods including AVIDemux which uses VDub Mod or scan in the DVD-Video using TMPEnc v4.0 Xpress and applying a time lead OR lag however this doex not solve a progressive lag but can be used to reauthor a fixed error.

Dvd no picture just sound

When you say No picture?? s the Picture all black Like theres no video? Try checking the video input on the tv or the cables from the player. If the inputs and cables are bad then theres a poroblem in the video processor in the dvd player and the only way to vix that would be to get a schematic diagram and a scope and trace out the video and see where it disapears. Good Luck
