Toshiba 30HF84 and progressive scan

We set our toshiba up using the three component cables about 1 year ago. We have been using the component cable connection of colorstream 2 from the back of the TV. I think this is also called progressive scan. Anyway this has stopped working. I can not get a component feed to work from the back or the front of the TV. What we get now is a somewhat compressed image, which looks to be about half of the screen and a very high rate of flicker. Colorstream 1 is being used to feed from our cable box and is working fine. If we pull the component cables and than hook up an S video cable the DVD appears fine on the TV screen. This is true from connections both in the back and front of the TV. I have tested two DVD units now on the TV with the same results. HELP.

Sounds like your connected component video. Try connencting with the yellow white and red cables. Also the unit might be set to progressive scan. Try dropping resolution within the player. Hope this helps.

Are audio boards still avaiable for toshiba 30hf84

I have a Panasonic with a defective audio output, and found a cheap alternative to an impossible to repair problem.

Mine still had audio if I connected headphones to it, but the speakers would get nothing. I found that a decent set of computer speakers (with sub woofer) worked great, and I could move the speakers to provide awesome stereo. Sub woofer is behind the TV.

I did a quick look and did not see an audio specific board available. Likely, it's part of the main board and not cheap to replace.

I hope you can use my fix. It's actually a better sound now than original.

I have a HD TV with cable and a go video DVD/VHS player hooked up. I went to change the time and accidentally changed the setting on the DVD player from auto scan (I think) from off to on and now when I...

It sounds like you may have enabled the progressive scan output on your DVD-VHS combo. This is a correct setting if your TV support it. However most DVD players that support progressive scan will not support an interlaced signal and a progressive signal at the same time.

It would appear that you are using a composite type cable (3 RCA ends. 1 for video and 2 for audio) for this hook up. This means you have two choices.

#1 Look in the manual for the unit for the FACTORY Reset option. Its usually a combination of plugging the unit in while holding the power button or something similar to that. Without a model # I can't help any further with this option.

#2 Use a component video cable (3 RCA red/green/blue) to plug your DVD/VHS player into a compatible input on your HD TV. Your TV will pick up the progressive scan output from the unit and give you back your on screen display. At this point you can go back into the menu and disable progressive scan. And now just reverse the process to plug the DVD player back in using the composite cable.

It should be noted that if you have a progressive scan TV which HD TV's support you will get a better picture if you use the Component video cables instead of switching back to the composite cable. If you decide to use the component cables you will still need to run audio cables though.

Best of luck.

Dvd is grainy picture

You can use your old on, but I am guessing it doesn't have progressive scan. If it does, make sure to hook it to your TV using a component cable.( RED GREEN BLUE ) Then you will have to hook the audio up seperately with a standard red and white RCA cable. Do nt try to use a standard RCA video cable in the place of a componenet cable. Once you have the compnent (RGB) cable and RCA (RW) cable hooked to the TV, check the DVD menu and make sure it is set to Progressive Scan. If you want the best picture for your HDTV. I highly reccomend a blu-ray disc player. That is the highest quality. There are some prety good upconverting DVD players out there. They take the 480p signal and upconvert them to 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. These have HDMI outputs and connect quickly and easily to the TV you have. Most of them can be purchased for less than 100 bucks. But this would be your second best option. Before you shell out 400 bucks on a blu-ray player, go to a rental company and rent a blu-ray player. Once you see the quality of blu-ray, I think you will run out and buy one!

Jvc tv does not recognize toshiba dvd player sometimes....

Which cable type are you using (component, composite, HDMI...)? If it's composite (the white, red, yellow) it may be in "progressive scan" mode. Check the manual to see how to toggle betwixt the two.

Component Video inputs do not work

I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.
