Question about Toshiba SD-5000

No picture, but sound

SD-5000...Hooked to a Sony Bravia via component cables, now picture, but sound. It was working fine, then had problem reading DVD's. It would stall and function very slowly. Moved TV to wall mount, and now no picture. TV doesn't seem to recognize the SD-5000. Have rechecked all hook-ups several times. seem OK. When hooked up to another TV, same problem, but also no sound. Any clue? Unit is 1.5 months old.

Re: No picture, but sound

I had the same problem and I managed to solve it. It was because the HDMI was set to 1080i and my TV isn't HD. Default HDMI is 480p. You can check your current HDMI setting on the front panel of your DVD. There should be a button with the words "HDMI select". Next to it there should be 3 values. If the current one (a green light shows which one is selected) is not 480p, change it. To change it, make sure your sd-5000 is on, but not reading a DVD. The press the "HDMI select" button on the front panel until the selected one is 480p. This worked for me.

(I had the same same problem without the reading slowly part. On one TV, the sound and video weren't working, and only the video wasn't working on another TV)

Hope it helps.

How do I hook up the DVD/VCR to cable box and Vizio HDTV?

both should be hooked directly to tv

VCR side of combo should be hooked up with composite video(yellow, red, white wires) to video 1 input

DVD side of combo should be hooked up component video (red, blue, green wires and red white for sound)

cable box should be hooked up HDMI or component to TV if HD or composite video if SD

hope this helps

good luck

DVD hooked up to sony bravia tv: have dvd power on, but can not get any set up menus (or anything) from dvd to show on tv screen.Unable to set up remote as menu does not appear on tv screen.

Hook up the player with RGB (Red-Green-Blue or component) cables and try the picture. If everything works OK, then go to the menu and turn on the HDMI output and set the resolution (if needed).
Not every HDMI unit works with every HDMI TV. You may also have a bad HDMI cable. On a DVD recorder, you may have your HDMI cable connected to HDMI IN. You must use HDMI out.

I hooked up a new Telefunken 5.1CH DVD player HDMI/USB through CrCbCy video output jack but my picture has a blue-ish hue. I hooked the same cables up to my old DVD player and the picture looks fine so...

Set the FORMA, PAL, NTSC correctly, this is what it sounds like, that or somehow you got the Component video cables a bit mixed up, as thats what it goes like when that happens.

Bravia indicates no signal from Sony BDP S350 DVD

I once had a similar problem, although with a different TV. It was insufficient to just power down the TV -- I had to unplug the TV so that it would re-initialize. It solved my issue.

Make sure none of the Digital or Component Input Assignments are programmed, if you're not using them. Set them to "----". This may help. Some of the Component input assignments may over-ride your other input assignments (perhaps even the HDMI input assignments).

We hooked out Toshiba SD-V291 up to our Sony TV through a Direct TV Cable box. We get the sound when we play a DVD but no Video. We hooked it up with an SVideo cable and input/output cables. What are we...

I just had the same problem, and I am using rca blue, red and green cables for video. I unplugged them and plugged them back in again a couple times and it finally worked. I have had this problem before with another dvd player, don't know why. Hope this helps.

Have sound,no picture

Do you have it hooked up using the component cables?(red, blue, green cables?) You need to use the component cables to use the progressive scan feature. So if you have it hooked up using the yellow rca jack, you will have to switch cables.

I have looked up the infomation on your TV I noticed that your TV has two HDMI input plugs. Since your SONY BRAVIA is hooked up to one port, you need to buy another HDMI cable for your PS3. On your tv remote you should have an option to switch from video 1 to video 2 so then you can switch from the SONY BRAVIA to the PS3 the problem is you will only hear your PS3 Sound from you TV. If you want to hear your PS3 sound from your SONY BRAVIA you need to buy an optical cable (also called TOSLINK) to connect from your PS3 to the SONY BRAVIA.

Hope that helps!
