No video input, just audio, brand new TOSHIBA HDTV

I just recently got a TOHSIBA 37 AV50U... Everything seemed perfect for the first few weeks just running cable and HDMI. I went to hook up my DVD player with RCA's (red,white,yellow) and i'm only receiving the sound, no picture. But, when I have the video (yellow) unplugged my TV will say "no signal" and when I plug it in the no signal sign disappears as if it is getting something. I tried this with my PS3, my cable box, as well as another DVD player, same result. I also switched RCA cables out to make sure there was no problem with wiring. I also tried the RCA pluggs on the side of the TV (which is Video 2) and still only sound, no video.

I called tech support and they were no help except ( if ) it is under warranty (1 year) and they told me to call an electronic repair shop. I got the item off online and i'm not sure if warranty is void because it went through another dealer?? Thanks so much for any help!!!!

SOURCE: Can't get my DVD player to work...

Your GE TV most likely doesn't have anything but a antenna input on it? If that the case to connect a DVD player you must purchase a RF modulator to convert the video and audio output of a DVD player to a channel 3 or 4 output. Here is a link for one at Radio Shack.

I have the same TV. Make sure you have hooked up the red, white, yellow leads from the "out" jacks on the DVD to the same colored "in" jacks on the back of the TV. You also have to make sure your TV is set to Video Mode. I do this with the GE remote that came with the TV. There is a WHO-INPUT button on the left side of the remote, 3rd from the bottom. Toggling this button should switch you between TV and Video mode. Hope this works for you.

SOURCE: I cant get my dvd to play using my rf modulator

Plug the DVD video and audio cables in to the RF converter. Connect the cable box output to the antenna input connector on the RF converter. Connect the RF converter output to the TV antenna jack. This way, when the converter is off it will pass the cable box signal through to the TV. (Most RF converters are auto-sensing. When it detects the a/v signals from the DVD player it switches its output on, and switches back to the cable box signal when you turn off the DVD.) Also be sure the RF converter is plugged in to AC power.

If you've done all this and you still have fuzzy pictures on either of the converter's output channels, you have a bad converter. Return it if you can, or replace it.

I have just got a Toshiba 37AV502R flat screen tv. I want to connect the digital audio output (optical) to my older 5.1 speaker system. The input on the sub woofer is a 15 pin VGA... I can't seem to find a...

Is this sub a Bose. The only reason you would see a VGA type connector on a sub is if it is dedicated to somthing else such as Bose 3-2-1 system. This is not a standard VGA input and can only be connected the the dedicated head unit. I need more info on the sub. Brand and model. Ther should be an analog audio input on the sub. This will be sufficient.

Toshiba 26AV502U (new) video dropout if VHS tapeis not perfect

Had problem checked by local outfit called "Circuit Pro"; their analysis was compatibility.
Actual answer was that the Toshiba required a better quality input from "any" VHS source.
I finally took a "less than perfect" VHS tape with me when I returned the Toshiba TV to the store and demonstrated the problem to one of the TV sales people. He played the VHS tape through a display VHS/DVD player to three different brands of TV. The picture was often "black screen" on a Toshiba, but was merely poor quality on the other two brands. I upgraded to a Sony KDL26M4000 from the Toshiba 26AV502U.

Have an AVR-2807 with a Toshiba DVD and Harmony remote. Havent played a DVD for a while and tonight when I try, I get picture and no sound. If I move the input to CD I get sound but I lose picture. ...

Have you changed the connections recently? If so, maybe something got plugged back in differently.

Otherwise check the AVR-2807's System Setup. There is a menu to associate different video inputs to each of the audio inputs. Probably the input with sound doesn't have the right video input associated with it, though I'm not sure you can associate a video input with the CD input... which tells me maybe the connections got changed?
