Question about Televison & Video
The DVD player is approx 2 yrs old and just recently has started to produce a poor/faded colour image, with some grey shading/shadowing around the outlines of the images. VHS tapes & TV working fine. What can I do to fix this? It gets medium use, perhaps 2hr usage twice or three times weekly.
Go purchase a DVD player cleaner. It will look somewhat like a DVD/CD and will clean the read heads. Often the issues is dirt/dust.

The easiest thing to do would be get a new TV plain and simple sounds as if you could use one n e ways. But first make sure you are hooked up through coaxal to the tv that will allow everything to run on channel 3. Let me know your current hookup.

Most of the time, the VCR cleaning tapes are not very good.
Take the VCR to the local TV service shop in your area, and pay them the few dollars for a proper manual cleaning.
After a few years of use, the transport may need a new pinch roller, belts, idler wheel, head cleaner sponge, and some other pieces. Most of the manufactures are no longer supplying replacement parts for VCR servicing, but the manufactures used to sell a maintenance kit for their models. This kit used to cost about $15 to $40 depending on the model of the VCR.
You can research how to do the manual cleaning yourself, but if you are not experienced you take the chance to damage your VCR. The heads, and the guide alignments are very critical. You may also need to change some parts.
If the VCR still does not perform after the cleaning, then there are fault conditions. The machine will then need proper service.

Well, this was no brainer. After simply unplugging the device for about 24 hours, everything went back to normal. Seem that the player is still having this problem from time to time, probably Bios related. I have also advise Toshiba support of the problem and the workaround. Hopefully, they will come with a permanent solution to that problem.
Have a nice day
