WD-52725 TV loses picture while playing DVD but not sound
Our TV is set up with a Cable, HD Cable, DVD, and VCR devices.
On three occasions we have played 3 different DVDs and lost the picture (gone to Blue Screen) but not the sound. When we change the device to the HDCable we get the Blue Screen, however if we change to the Cable Device everything works fine. If we turn the TV off for a while everything will work fine and then the same thing happens again.
Other Data: Six weeks ago the lamp indicator came on. Three weeks ago I pulled the lamp out and placed it back in and the lamp indicator went off. The problem above did not occur until three days ago.

1st, see if you can get another cable box that offers component as well as RCA outputs on the back. Does your cable box have S Video out and does your toshiba have S Video in? If so, hook up the S Video from cable box to Toshiba. Then hook up R&W audio from Cable Box out to Toshiba In. Set the channel on the cable box to what you want to record. Set Toshiba to record channel 3 or 4, whichever your Toshiba is set on. The cable box controls the channel you are recording. You cannot set the recorder to the channel you want to record. It must be either 3 or 4. Try it. If everything else fails, you have to go cable from wall to cable in on cable box, cable out on cable box to cable in on Toshiba then either cable or RCA out on Toshiba to TV.
Some program have copy protection or your installations cable and setup try to set lower resolutions and make sure you see the picture on TV before record
Or tell me how are your installation from which device to where
I may able to help you
depends on what your tv is ill give u basic coax out from wall into cable box out from cable into vcr out from vcr into tv for better picture use red white and yellow from vcr to tv. for dvd use red white yellow out from dvd in to tv for better picture if tv has use s-video instead of yellow cable. for even better use red green blue(component)along with white and red for audio. if tv is hd and if dvd has it the very best is hdmi. you will only need one cable from dvd to tv instead of three or five sounds like a lot i know but take one step at a time youll get it
First off, scart has an auto detect feature across pin 8, HDMI does not. If you have turn your TV to the HDMI channel, and at some point turn off the HD source device you are going to get a blank screen, you have to manually turn your TV back. In regard to whilst you are recording it sounds like you may have tuned in channels on your DVD but not your TV. Do you have an RF aerial lead connected from the DVD output to the RF on you telly? Do you have a sky/cable box connected to your TV via scart? Does the DVD have DVB (digital video broadcast) if so and you have none of the above that is the problem, any tuner running off a single RF lead can only record/play 1 channel at a time. If you have no RF lead going to the TV, then the TV cannot show any terrestrial channels.
if you get a blue screen than your lamp is working fine. blue screen is considered "video mute" it display that blue if the tv thinks there is no video. try to reset the tv by pressing - menu 123 then reset to system defaults.
check to see you have the cables required by the tv. usually you need hdmi or dvid for hd display. digital rights management protocols have resulted in chips in playing devices that allow only the use of the referenced cables to protect content from being copied. in some sets they default to not playing in hd, but still play something. look there first, otherwise you may have an input source mismatch. follow instructions on the dvd player first, then make sure the tv has compatible settings. if that does not solve, you have a service issue with one or both. good luck mark
On your TV set remote are you selecting the proper input; for example when you have different devices connected to the back of your tv set, dvd player, vcr, cable box etc; you have to tell the tv which device you want to use by selecting the right one on your tv remove input selection. Hope this was any help.
