Question about Toshiba 30HFX84 30" TV

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

Re: HDMI Input Failed

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.

Sony Wega KV-30HS420 input problem

Just reset the TV to its factory settings and check. To do this you have to enter its service mode option. How to enter the service mode option is described in one among the posts at the site linked here.
But, before doing this reset, just connect the HDMI cable to the TV, and input an HDMI signal to it. If there is no input signal, the set will display as 'no input'. Check this first. If you wish to get further assistance from me, come over by FiXya comment.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

Can I connect my PC to my Toshiba 30HFX84 30

You can't connect the PC to the 30HFX84 directly. (The HDMI ports are not compatible with a computer's signal.)

If you use a converter box (VGA to component video), you would be able to get the connection. See this site for some examples: . Avoid the VGA to component video cables; those are for connecting to a projector that reads RGB signals at the component in.

Some video cards have a TV out option. In that case, you wouldn't need the converter. You might need the appropriate dongle to fit the video card TV-out and then connect the cable to the TV.

Crutchfield has the manual for the 30HFX84 available here: .

I hope this helps.

How do you use PS3 and DVD player with the Toshiba 32Dtu2 LCD TV?

The PS3 can be hooked up to the tv using either a HDMI cable or the old RCA (Yellow, Red, White) cables. If you are having problems viewing a picture or hearing sound, here is some trouble shooting you might want to try.

Connect the PS3 using both the HDMI and RCA cables. select the HDMI input on your tv. turn on the PS3. If you cant see a picture, press and hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps (this will take about 15 seconds). This resets the PS3 to the old RCA cables. Select the RCA input on your tv. Hopefully you can see the image and hear the PS3 now. Go to the settings on the PS3 and change the display settings to output video through the HDMI. Remember, your tv can only go as high as 1080i resolution, so you wont see anything if you select the 1080p resolution.

If this didn't work, you might have a bad signal though the HDMI cable. Unplug the tv and PS3 for atleast 30 minutes, and then connect the PS3 to the tv before you turn either one on.

If this doesn't help, then you might have a HDMI cable that isn't recognized by either your PS3 or your tv. Try replacing your HDMI cable.

Hope this helps!

Is the TV connected to both the DVD and the Cable box via component inputs? I gather the cable box is a HD box? If they both show up through component try connecting them to the composite video inputs (yellow connections) and see if the problem still shows up.

Sony with diagonal lines

Is it a composite(yellow plug)video input? an HDMI input? What if you switch the output of the cable box to another input, Make sure its not the cable box first. If it happens on another input then the cable box or the connection wire to the tv from the cable box is bad.Good Luck Ps Please rate this thread
