Problems with Toshiba DVD Player

The Toshiba DVD Player was working fine for a few months. Now I get a message saying ''Unable to output the video to an external device. Please switch your display device by pressing the Fn + F5 keys after ending the application.''I've tried everything & still get the same message. Any suggestions?Thanks!Leisa

The Toshiba DVD Player will not work. It keeps displaying a message that says, "unable to output the videon to an external device. Please check the external output setting after ending the application."


U have not mentioned that what have u experienced with other media players like Win Media Player, if that works fine, u have to reinstall the Toshiba DVD player software from the official website of toshiba by following the link below;

It sounds like the DVD player software is defaulting to an external monitor connection for the DVD video output. Try installing a different player or reinstalling/reconfiguring the one provided.

Remote control


Does the DVD player have an RF output or only video? That's a drag there are no RF/Video buttons. I had a TV like that too. I suppose you already knew this. Remote controls for even newer TV's are hard to find. Good luck.

System Error


FYI...the best suggestion I've seen is to hold the channel up and play buttons simutaneously....thereby causing the machine to return to the "factory initialized" state. So far so good for me. We'll see. photog1
