Re: Image has red hue when connected via Composite...

Hell, the firest thing you should try and do is to clean all the connections with sandpaper-especially the connections which are on the TV. Good Luck!

How do I get the correctly connect from the DVD player to the TV set?

It depends on your TV's available inputs. If your TV has an HDMI port, you'll get the audio and HD video to your set with one cable if you invest in an HDMI cable; purchase the cable online (you don't need to pay $$$$ for the cable). Stores that specialize in cables will have the best picture. Press the HDMI select button on your remote to go through the resolution options for the DVD player. (see page 14 of the manual
If your TV doesn't have an HDMI port, check for component video. This will also give an HD picture to the TV. You'll need cables for the 2 RCA audio and 3 RCA (Red, blue, green) video plugs (or one cable with 5 RCA plugs) on each end of the cable. The mega-cables though can be a bit more difficult to plug in. Make sure that the colors match. (Some TVs use an adapter that consolidate the cable connection at the TV. You still need to match the colors at the adapter.)

If your TV only has composite in, you'll have an SD signal at the TV. This is the cable with one RCA plug (yellow) for video and the 2 RCA plugs (red and white) for audio. This cable is often included with the DVD player.
If your TV only has a coax connection (OTA tuner or analog cable), you'll need a Composite to RF converter. These used to be available at Radio Shack and can still be found online as well.
If some countries, the TV might have a SCART port. You can find a composite to SCART adapter.
The manual is available from Toshiba here: . Select the Manuals and Specs tab. The file is a PDF; so you will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the file.

I hope this helps. If you need additional assistance, please add a comment with details of your TV.

(if your TV has an SD (480i) resolution, you probably only have the composite and coax inputs.)

It sounds like you may have your vcr connected via composite cable. Check the back of your VCR and follow the cable to your TV. You should see a Red, White and Yellow connection on both ends. The Yellow connector is the video.

Here is an image to help you find it:

My dvd player only plays movies in black and white. When I watch tv, it's in color so I know its not the tv.


I suspect you may have connected a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type) to the COMPONENT video input sockets on the back of the TV.

COMPONENT requires 3 RCA type video cables - the plugs and sockets are usually colour-coded red, green, and blue. COMPOSITE only uses one RCA type video cable - the plugs and sockets are usually colour-coded yellow.
If you connect the yellow video cable to one of the three component inputs you will get a black and white picture although you will still have audio if the red and white cables are correctly connected.

If you are using a COMPOSITE cable (red/white/yellow RCA type), please check your connections. Make sure you have not connected to any sockets - either on the TV or the back of the DVD player - under the heading of "COMPONENT" - or individually marked "Pr", "Cr", "Pb", "Cb" or "Y".

If you have verified that you are using the correct sockets on the TV and it still doesn't work or if you are using any other type of cable, please let me know which cable you are using and the model number of the TV and the DVD player. I will then be able to assist you further.

How do i connect my dvd rv32 to my sony tv?

It will depend on your TV's inputs. The included cable is a composite A/V cable. This will work. Match the RCA plugs on each device (yellow to video out on the DVD player, video in on the TV; white and red audio go similarly). Alternatively, you can get and use an S-video cable.

For a better picture if your TV has Component video, get a Component video cable (this has three RCA jacks colored red, green and blue on each end) and then use that. You can get a separate audio cable that only has the red/white RCA jacks (or use the composite video with the yellow video jacks dangling).

If your TV doesn't have Composite video inputs, you need a RF modulator (Composite to RF converter). These are available at many sites, including Radio Shack.

I hope this helps.

Connect to hdtv

Connecting this up will be easy. What you do isget a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER oneof the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE wayCable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables withRCA PLUGSon them. ColoredYellow, (Video)Red, &White. (Audio)AV. OR If you haveSCARTConnection Sockets, it's a big BlackSocket at rear of unit(s), you get aSCARTCable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard calledComponent Video, that uses, aGreen,Red, &Blue Plugs.Also we have with the"Component Video" it is marked "Y" "Pb" &"Pr" these simply go color to color at BOTH ends, this is where theRed, Green, & Blues, colored Ends, of the Wires, goes, remembering thatthis is ALL only Video. With this method, you still must use the AV, red &White, Audio, Inputs to get the "Sound" into the unit, with theComponent setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for theAVAudio. these are,Red&White.(So with ComponentVideo there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any eventALL Cables go Color to Color,at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, oneither machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs inonly one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses,and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a"Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" onVCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go.

Right, well,IFyour TV has a DB15FemalePlug on it then you CAN, connect it upand it will work, as a second "Monitor". OR If thelaptop,has a "Composite Video" aYellow RCA socket, then you can, connect to the TV's Composite IN. & itwill be a second monitor. Otherwise youcannot,the VGA signal is NOT compatible with a TV's input. SOME cards have a connectorthat plugs into the DB15 and to the TV, but they are "Special". Insaying that though you can "Micky Mouse" things together and get anoutput, but it real poor quality, and disappointing results, there are variousposts on the net about doing this if you wish.
Remember DRIVERS, you also need the drivers installed & setup correctly inorder for the hardware to work. As a tip, When connecting to a TV, alwaysconnect like this......First, plug all cables into TV's correct Video input(s).Connect up the Sound, plug all cables into laptop, turn TV ON. NOW,start the laptop, you should now soon see the an image.
NOTE: Some laptops & other devices, have HDMI out, sometimes, the AUDIO isnot passed through, the HDMI cable, & the Audio must be run from Audio/LineOUT on laptop to AV IN on TV.Alsosomelaptops have a socket that amulti-way 4/5/6/7 pins. A connector plugs into this, you then can connect tothese connections, as you would normally. Also we have "ComponentVideo" marked "Y" "Pb" & "Pr" these simplygo color to color at BOTH ends, this is where the Red, Green, & Blues,colored Ends, of the Wires, goes, remembering that this is ALL only Video. Withthis method, you still must use the AV, red & White, Audio, Inputs to getthe "Sound" into the unit

At the rear or side of the PC there should beeither or both of a 15 Pin DIN Plug, HDMI socket. or a Yellow RCA or 4 -7 pinDIN. Now IF these are present then YES you can connect to a TV. Now some TV'shave a connector a DB15 MALE, so that the cable from the PC to the TV, is DB15.this plugs in directly, with appropriate DB15 cable. This, however, will ONLYtake the VIDEO to the TV, Audio is delivered via the "Audio Out" Jackon PC, and Plugged into the AV Sockets on the TV, with a dual cored coaxialcable, they are Red & White. Some PC's also have a Yellow RCA Connector, ORa 4 -7 Pin DIN Socket, that requires a Special Adapter Cable (That generallycame with the unit, and are colored and marked as to output) to use, forVideo/Audio Out to TV. This signal is Composite or SVHS Video & Stereo Out.This connects up TO the TV's Composite/SVHS input Jacks and the Red & WhiteAudio IN, RCA Jacks, &/or DIN SVHS socket. Also we have "ComponentVideo" marked "Y" "Pb" & "Pr" thesesimply go color to color at BOTH ends, this is where the Red, Green, &Blues, colored Ends, of the Wires, goes, remembering that this is ALL onlyVideo. With this method, you still must use the AV, red & White, Audio,Inputs to get the "Sound" into the unit
First you need to know if your PC can output to a TV. Then you need to get theadapter & cables that connect the PC to the TV. Then you need the correctTV drivers installed for your video card. When they are all installed, you needto "Enable" that Monitors, the TV's, Desktop. You need to set eithera "Cloned" display or "Spanned, Extended Desktop". Go to "DisplaySettings" Now ensure the TV/Monitor connected has the correct input/outputdisplay settings. Adjust the screens resolution via the resoloution"Slider", it is best to start with, 800x600 32 bit color. or evenlower. and once working OK, THEN increase to max resolution, your TV can handle,find out from manual. Once it is all connected up. It should all just workgreat. Now, from then on, &, to get it to work every-time, the process is.Turn everything OFF. Connect the leads between PC & TV, Turn the TV, ON.Then, startup the PC up. Itshould "Detect" that it has TWO "Monitors" ie: One Monitor& One TV/Monitor, & you should see your desktop appear after a bit. Nowyou have screen 1 & screens 2. Now, if you are using "Cloned"mode, then whatever is displayed on the Master monitor, will be displayed onthe TV. If you used Spanned, mode, in this mode, however, you will haveto."Drag" the Video window, over to the TV, and it is though, youhave one "Big Desktop". Now IF using Nvidia or ATI then BOTH of thosehave thier OWN, Control Panel, this, all then can make it all a lot easier todo it. So I would suggest that this method be used. But if you get stuck, orjust want to do it by hand, then the the "By Hand" method is the onlyway.There is a great program called MultiMon, this allows great control overdual displays, and is well worth installing.

I'm a senior citizen and bought a very simple DVD Player by you, but can't get it connected correctly. I am not a stupid person but beginning to feel like one. Please HELP>

This player has the typical composite and component TV connections. If you have an older standard TV, you will need a composite to RF TV adaptor. If you have a newer widescreen HD Television, you should be able to connect the composite or component cables to it directly Composite is the 3 video cable bundle (Red, Green, Blue), and composite is the yellow single connection. Audio connects via the standard white/red connectors. If your TV is newer and supports multiple inputs, make sure you can switch to the input you are connected to via the TV remote! Check your manuals.

More info (brand/model) might help with specific answer. what type connection your using for video. also how long have you had it. but... my guess is youve got something hooked up wrong. might be a switch to go from Composite (red/green/blue) three cable video to 1 cable rca or s-video or youve got the yellow video cable in one of the composite jacks.

please rate.

Black and white picture only...

You have you're video cord in the wrong jacks. If you are using composite make sure it's in the yellow jack and make sure the player is NOT set to progressive scan.
If you are using component, make sure the cables are in the RED, GREEN, and BLUE jacks, but make sure you have the CORRECT red jack (not the right channel audio out...).
