Question about Toshiba SD-37VSR Player

1 Answer

DVDs are playing with green tinge

My SD-37VBSB combo video/dvd player from Toshiba has started playing all the DVDs with a strong green colour that makes them unwatchable. Videos play fine and the TV channels are perfect. Have I done something without realizing? Can it be fixed?

Greetings and Salutations,

If your using the component outputs from your DVD player I would first check to make sure that the cables for the Red and Blue channels are connected properly. If the cable is connected correctly then try replacing both the Red and Blue channel cable. If this fails to fix the problem try connecting to another component input on your TV if you have one available. 

You might also want to check to see if you switched on the progressive scan switch on the back of the VCR/DVD unit. If you know someone with another DVD player have them bring it over and see if the problem is still exists. 

If the green picture is still present then the problem is and internal problem with the TV and you will need to find a repair center for it. If the problem goes away then the problem is with the VCR/DVD combo unit. You can at this point also try using just the Video Out from the DVD player.

Hope these suggestions will help you with your problem.

My sd3980 dvd player wont turn on


Some new dvd/vcr combo (or just dvd players) NEED to be plugged through either the HDMI or component cables (blue/green/red cables) in order to view the DVDs.

Try one of those to see if it fixes your problem.

P.S. don't forget to change the input of your TV to either the connection you are using for the DVD (HDMI or components)

Will not play all DVD's


Try a dvd lens cleaning kit. This may help.
It could also be the laser itself. Newer DVDs require a very strong laser to read them.Older ones do not.
You can pick up a cleaning kit at Wal mart for about 10 dollars.Hope this helps

Dvd player plays with yellow tinge


If you are using a scart connection, check that it is plugged in fully & straight, also check for bent or missing pins.

Sounds like you have no green input.

Can only play DVDs for one region code.


Most DVDs can only play DVDs from a single region. However, they sometimes allow you to change the region at least one time. Another option is to make your DVD player region free. This is a hack that can be performed. Once you do this, you can play DVDs from any region.
