Question about Toshiba 30HFX84 30" TV

1 Answer

HDMI Input Failed

Everything has been working fine on this Toshiba 30hfx84 HDTV set. I've been using a Sony upconvert N70S DVD player input into the HDMI jack to watch DVDs. All of the sudden, it doesn't work anymore. The HDMI input seems to be the problem as every other input is fine. I've tried two different HDMI upconverting DVD players (Samsung and Toshiba models) and I tried swapping out the HDMI cable for a new one. Nothing works. Is there any other recommendations? Thanks, Tim

I've been seeing alot of this out in the field. The cable is thick and heavy, after awhile the HDMI connectiion inside the set comes apart and breaks from the main board. In my opinion the only difference between Component jacks and HDMI inputs is the thought of reducing the amount of wire mass in the back of the unit. It's more pleasing to the eye. If it's under any kind of warranty, call a servicer. The main PCB will need to be replaced. If it's not under warranty, use component input cables, you'll get the same performance from your set and save a few bucks.

HOW DO I PLAY A DVD USING Hitachi Flat Panel Television 32HDL51 (ITS CONNECTED THROUGH HDMI CABLE)


Page 18 of the manual, you shouldn't need to do steps 2 or 3.

CONNECTING A COMPONENT SOURCE WITH HDMI or DVI CAPABILITY TO INPUT 1 or INPUT 2
1.Connect the HDMI or DVI to HDMI connection cable from the output of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the HDMI input as shown on the AVC Center below.
2.With DVI output, connect the cable from the AUDIO OUT R of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the INPUT (AUDIO/R) jack.
3.With DVI output, connect the cable from the AUDIO OUT L of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the INPUT (AUDIO/L) jack.
4.Press the INPUTS button, then select INPUTS 1 or 2 to view the program from the HDTV set top box or DVD player. The VIDEO OSD label disappears automatically after approximately four seconds.
5.Select ANT A or B from the INPUTS menu to return to the previous channel.
NOTES:1. Completely insert the connection cord plugs when connecting to rear panel jacks. The picture and sound that is played back will be abnormal if the connection is loose.
2. The HDMI input on INPUT 1 or 2 contains the copy protection system called High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). HDCP is a cryptographic system that encrypts video signals when using HDMI connections to prevent ******* copying of video contents.
3.HDMI is not a "NETWORK" technology. It establishes a one-way point-to-point connection for delivery of uncompressed video to a display.
4.The connected digital output device controls the HDMI interface so proper set-up of device user settings determines final video appearance.

How do i program my sony dvd player dvp.sr200p to work on my philips tv


No special programming is required. Connect the DVD player to the TV using an HDMI cable. Note which input jack you used on the TV (example: HDMI 1 or HDMI 2, etc.) Turn on the DVD player and insert a DVD disc and play it. Turn on the TV and select the input you used to connect the DVD player (example: HDMI 1 or HDMI 2, etc.). You should now see and hear the DVD disc playing. Most settings are pre-set at the factory so everything will work without adjustment. However, both the DVD player and the TV have a Menu where you can adjust settings for picture, sound, etc. if desired.

I have a toshiba 42HL196. With HDMI cables hooked up, I have no picture when attempting to watch cable TV or use my DVD player. Everything works when I hook up using RCA cables. What is my problem?


By no picture, do you mean that you have sound? If yes then ensure that the tv and the DVD player/cable box is set to the same resolution as that of the tv. That should resolve the problem.

Onkyo605 stopped outputting Video after installing HDAV1.3 sound


If you didnt change any of the inputs going to the onkyo. I would check the input setup. I dont know what input you have your pc connected to on the onkyo, i'm guessing that your using a hdmi cable. make sure you have hdmi selected as your input type not component video or any other. That model doesnt upconvert anything to hdmi. Also some dvi-d to hdmi dont play well wih onkyo.

No 5.1 surround when adding a Philips upconvert player to the San


Sounds like you are getting analog signals from your componet cables and a true digital input from your HDMI into your tv.

However that unit is Analog audio input x 1 only.
So i dont think your going to get true digital surround sound.
The problem being

Sanyo =

Inputs: Analog Audio x 1 Outputs: Composite x 1 · S-Video x 1 · Component x 1 · Digital Audio Coaxial x

Connecting LG DVD recorder to cable box and HGTV digitally


Two things come to mind: copy protection and resolution settings.
The TV may not allow copy protected material to come from your LG, or the sampling frequency may be unacceptable. On page 15 of the manual it talks about 96kHz and 48kHz frequency settings. The third thing to check is the vertical resolution using the RES button on the front panel. SDTV is 480, and HDTV is anything above that. Using the HDMI is supposed to allow upconvert to 1080i max if your set can use that resolution.

Upconversion to 1080i playback


Hey smittybd,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, this specific model DVD player is only able to provide upconverted 1080i images via its HDMI output and a maximum 480p resolution using its component connectors. Please keep in mind that while component cables are able to support 1080i and 1080p resolutions, not all hardware (TV's and DVD players) will support these resolutions through component connections.

If you're having difficulty locating a model that specifically supports 1080i resolution images through its component connections, you may wish to try visiting individual manufacturers' websites for more information. Some companies (such as Sony) will provide detailed information regarding what each type of connection is capable of in their owner's manual documentation.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

We are having the same problem. We have 2 DVD players with up-converter to 1080i and 1080p. Both DVD work fine (one Sony and one Samsung) with our Samsung LN-T4053H upstairs, never intermittent.

LN40A530 downstairs is having "Searching for Signal" problem. Took it back to Sears got a new one, problem followed. Something is wrong with this LN40A530. Perhaps firmware update is needed.
