This can normally not be fixed because it has to do with how you encoded your videos. Some players will automatically adjust this, but not the majority of the ones built into the TV.

This is the reason that I don't recommend people spending extra money for smart-tvs, they generally aren't that smart and it's better to get an external player.

HOW DO I USE THE USB PORT TO PLAY MOVIES


Tom,

To be able to play movies stored on a USB device (it doesn´t matter if it's a usb pen, a usb hard drive, etc), you will need two things:

1.- The device where you want to play the movies must support the USB device that you're using (not all USBs are the same, and they can be formatted differently, too). So if when you plug it in, the TV doesn´t recognize it, use a different USB device.

2.- The movies that you put on the USB device must be palyable by your device. ie: your TV, BluRay, etc must be able to decode and play the movie format, and this can be AVI, DIVX, XVID, H624, QT, MKV, etc. Even if your device reproduces DIVX movies, if the movie is encoded in a weird format, it won't be playable. The fastest way to know is trial and error.

USB may be drawing too much power from USB port. Try and power the drive from an adapter cable to wall outlet or get a special double up USB cable to share the power from a second USB port

My hard drive don't work in the USB port on my toshiba 26el800a tv


this toshiba tv only supports harddrives that are formatted in FAT32 format.
you will need to reformat your hard drive to FAT32 in order to display pictures and play audio.
there is no other support for movies etc according to toshiba's websitehttp://www.mytoshiba.com.au/products/televisions/led-backlit-tv/el800a/26el800a/specifications#details

this will not work by it self you will either need to buy a computer with media software that will support your hard drive or a DVR that will support you hard drive.
the hard drive connected to the device you have tried to connect to are not smart devices they will not support a stand alone external drive even though there is a usb port.
