Perhaps 2 things. Does TV get a picture without DVD connected? If so I would bet you have a faulty connection in your signal board where the in jacks are at the back of the TV . Check to make sure cable from DVD are not bad, I have used cables before and got a false positive. Try turning and spinning the jacks once you have a picture.Make sure your signal board is firmly pressed into its slot on the signal board chassis. Thats it for now. Good luck.

Not sure if this is the tv or what. Was watching this tv yesterday. Then suddenly all other channels except for the one I was on either had squiggly colored lines or 3 mirrored versions of the picture. Now...


Does it happen on other inputs? If so, reset the tv, sat or cable box, unplug power and try again. Play a dvd. Does it happen on a dvd? If not, there is an issue with your cable source. If it shows on dvd too, contact your tv manufacturer. You need a repair.

DVD picture is in Black & White only.


Are you trying to play an NTSC disc in a PAL player, If so,your player has a switch or
on-screen setting to select the output format for NTSC discs,

Or maybe you have connected one of the component outputs (Y, R-Y, or B-Y) of
your DVD player to the composite input of your TV.

Lightning mcqueen tv and dvd set-up, won't play, have direct tv hook-up


i guess there a built in dvd player on the set and it could play most DVD format.
but if you wish to use another dvd player
hook up the dvd on the tv
video output (DVD) to video input (TV)
audio output to audio input
the find the auxiliary button from either the tv or dvd

Toshiba 57HX81 is all wiggly and distorted (youtube video attached)


I don't know about that. Someone probably was rough with it and messed them up. You should have a technician look at it.

Picture is of poor quality (wavy)


This may indicate a problem with the RF tuner. When you are using the DVD player is the output of the DVD using the F (RF Coax) Conncetor or is the DVD connect to the TV using the Video/Audio cables (either Composite (Red, White, Yellow) or Component (Red, Green, Blue)). I am do however believe this to be a RF tuner problem. Make sure that the TV is set to channel 3 and the cable box is connected to the TV (set to channel 3). What you could also do is get digital cable and use the video output jack as the input to the TV on one of your aux positions.

I would first make sure the tunner is on channel 3 when using the regular cable box, or if you are using the TV's cable ready features make sure the tunner is working correctly, this might have to be done by a qualifide TV repair person.

I hope this helps
Thank you,

Rolling lines from bottom to top on Toshiba 57hx81


Mike I suppose it might be the Flex converter failing on you, you will probably want a repairman on this one, these are really complicated to work on and if there is about 5yrs of age on set it may need sent in for a rebuild on the flex.
