I have tried to connect my SD 6100 and am getting no picture. I get sound.
You must use the remote to toggle the player OUT of HDMI output mode to use the non-HDMI outputs (like standard RCA-jack VGA or s-video or component video output). The device displays black screen by default unless you're using HDMI, so it's not possible to see the menu if using s-video. The manual states to press the 'Progressive' button to change modes. Unfortunately, you can't see what mode you're toggling through until you hit the right one (Toshiba blew it here!!). Power on the device WITHOUT a disk in (you can't change modes during DVD playback mode). There are four output modes, so press the 'Progressive' button on the remote and wait for 3 to 5 seconds for the player to switch output modes. Repeat this up to four times to cycle through the available modes. During one of the modes, you should see output to your screen through the cable hookup you've physically attached. You will also notice the led's on the front panel go on and off during the process at times. If you ARE using HDMI, then you have to select a mode your TV or monitor can handle. When in HDMI mode, you'll notice the front panel HDMI led's will light up. There are five modes here - 480P, 720P, 1080i, 1080P and AUTO (when all four leds are lit). Select the HDMI mode that your TV works with. Good luck ~ and don't bother calling Toshiba support ... friggin waste of time talking to a recording that's dumber than Sh#@!!
