Re: Toshiba SD 3800

Check your scart connection, make sure its plugged in ok (silly i know but they do come loose and cause this kind of problem), also check in your video output menu that its set right, i.e. r.g.b, composite, pal, ntsc

I have a go video DV2140 that is only a couple months old and suddenly is started playing DVDs in black and white. I've tried different DVDs and they are all black and white now. The TV itself is color...

Bring it back to the place of purchase since the item is under warranty, this is a manufacture defect and you are in your perfect right to have a replacement.

Movie only playing in black and white how do I fix that?

To fix out this problem you need to go to the video settings

This is happening because you have selected NTSC video format
Select the PAL video format and you would be able to see coloured movies again

We have reconnected our DVD to our new flatscreen and can see the picture, hear the sound but the picture is only black and white

This sounds like either the colour settings on the DVD are wrong for your new TV, or the TV has got the wrong setting for the socket that the DVD is connected to.
Go to the menu of the DVD first and look for picture settings etc. Or colour, keep your eyes peeled for the words PAL or NTSC.

Our dvd player now only works showing movies in black and white. What can we do? It use in color but for some unknown reason the movies are in black and white.


someone must have pressed something mistakenly.

Check the DVD remote and press PAL/NTSC. The color should appear.

Or you could also check the video wire at the back of the DVD and TV, maybe it has loosed contact.

I wish you all the best.

My dvd player skips.

Run a good dvd cleaner. After cleaning check with a known good dvd. Hopefully the problem is fixed. Good luck.

Toshiba SD-K850 does not open

Unplug the unit for 10 minutes, then plug it in and try again. I just had the same problem after our main power went off and on a few times (during a storm). If that didn't work and you don't plan on servicing it, before you "recycle" it, unplug it & drop it from about 3 to 4 inches from the "carpet". It may just have some crude stopping up the mechanism. Continue to increase the height of the drop untill you REALLY do have to recycle it :)
