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.

Hdmi will not work only use of component cables will.


The HDMI[1] input on your TV receives digital audio

and uncompressed digital video and audio from an

HDMI device or uncompressed digital video from a

DVI[2] device.

This input is designed to accept HDCP[3] program

material in digital form from EIA/CEA-861/861B-

compliant[4] consumer electronic devices (such as a settop

box or DVD player with HDMI or DVI output).

The HDMI input is designed for best performance

with 1080i high-definition video signals, but will also
accept and display 480i, 480p, and 720p signals.

To connect an HDMI device, you will need:

• one HDMI cable (type A connector)

For proper operation, it is recommended that you use

a short HDMI cable. You should not encounter

difficulty if you use an HDMI cable shorter than 16.4

ft (5m).

HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.

Separate analog audio cables are not required (see

illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may

not output digital audio signals. In that case, you

may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.

However, if you connect analog audio cables with

this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will

not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.

To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset

properly, it is recommended that you follow

these procedures:

• When turning on your electronic components,

turn on the TV first, and then the HDMI or

DVI device.

• When turning off your electronic components,

turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.

To connect a DVI device, you will need:

• one HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable

(HDMI type A connector)

For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-

DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).

The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables

I just got a toshiba theaterview sd dolby digital

That particular TV has both "component video" and standard video inputs. The DVD player might have a component video output (it will be three separate connectors of three different colors.) You will need a component video patch cable available at most electronics stores. If your DVD player doesn't have that input then use the standard video connector, yellow wire connects the video out on the DVD player to the Video input on the TV. The red and white wires are the left and right stereo audio connections they also make a cable for that. It will be color coded so make sure you match the codes from the output to the input on the TV. This set has two video inputs, you will get your best resolution if you use them instead of a "channel" input.

You will need the remote to select the video 1 or video 2 inputs. You can connect your DVD player and your game at the same time. Just use video 1 for the DVD and video 2 for the game. They require the yellow, red and white connector cables. Just follow the color code and match the colors with the jacks on the TV and other units. There is actually a third video input Video 3 behind the little door on the front panel. That would be convenient for the game if you want to remove it easily when not in use.

Push the menu button on the remote (big button in the middle) go to the video function and select either Video 1 for your DVD, Video 2 or 3 for your game.

The correct video input for what you want to view is important. Also if you don't have the user's manual it's available for free here:

You might also need to download an Adobe Viewer which allows you to read .pdf files.
That is also available for free at:

If you already have malware protection (viruses and the like) un-check the MacAfee box so you don't download that too.

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.

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.
