Other inputs not working on rear projection toshiba

My Toshiba rear projection television works when HD colorstream input is on, but all the other choices -- tv, dvd, vcr1, vcr2 (for wii etc) are all scrambled now (wavey lines no picture). Why does one work and all the others suddently not work.

Check for progressive scan and interlaced setting also verify if you have component hook up that it auto maticall chooses your resolution because if your tv is waiting for 1080i and you send 1080p it will not always work and if it expects 1080i and you send it 480i(s-video or rca connection) it may not automatically flip

I have a 65 inch toshiba cinema series it's says


if a large rear projection set that just says HD, it likely is HD ready which means it needs a set top box connected to the Colorstream input marked 1080 on the rear of the set--It will only likely be 1080i and not p---owner manual would confirm this.

I suddenly lost the color on the screen and no manual adjustments seem to work to restore it.


I'm assuming that you have tried all the color temperatures, the full color setting, the full tint range and the correct input/colorstream to no avail. The only thing left that you can do then is to try to reset it - Menu, Picture, Reset button on the remote.
If even this has failed then the defect is in the tuner - you will have to call a repairman to replace it.

If you have the wires switched GEEN,BLUE,RED on one end the color will be wrong. Check that the color off the wires are matched. Try a new cable. I've seen this a lot.

Most of the time the Hyper Board failing is the cause of this problem. It will eventually get worse where it also affects the HD ins. Unfortunately the Hyper Boards are no longer available from Toshiba and have not been available for quite some time. My suggestion is to coast with it and replace the Set when the HD ins fail.

Its not broken or nothin i was wondering how to put the input for cabel from cable/sat to colorstream hD1


Cable boxes or satellite receivers typically only come with audio/video output, RF output, and component output. You need an upgraded one which has the Hdmi output jack. The upgraded box will cost you a service fee around $5-10 a month, so if you don't want to pay to receive the 1080p service you can receive 720p by using the component video output leads from your cable box.

The quality is almost as good. The only difference will be that you won't be able to receive the hi-def channels that the cable company offers.
