Question about Toshiba HD-A20

There is no colour on the movie

We just bought a new Samsung LCD TV and it is great. Problem is when we play a movie on the Toshiba DVD player, there is no colour at all. The movie plays just fine, it just doesn't have any colour. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Make sure you have the cables hook up right. If you are running component mode it takes three for video blue red and white ends. If you are running composite it takes red, white, and yellow.

Yes, you would need a dvd player or some sort of additional media player. They have alot of different kinds out now. You can even use your cable box to order movies, or you can even use a device that will stream movies instantly such as netflix.

New lcd tv and dvd player is playing movies in black & white


1. Verify connections are color coded.

2. If they are correct, take out movie, press Play/Stop at same time on the front of the unit (not remote) to reset any settings that may have been changed.

Toshiba 52" REGZA has a grainy picture


There is no easy (read: cheap) solution for this. Especially because your TV is so big, the only thing that will look good on it is something that plays at the very least 720p HD output.

I don't know what your DVD player model is, but you want an upconverting DVD player, and even then, the quality will not be full HD. The only thing that is full 1080p HD on the market today is Blu-Ray, and game consoles like XBox 360 and PS3.

As for the sports, it depends on the TV you bought. If the deal was too good to be true for a 52" TV, you probably got one with a low Hz, or a high refresh rate. This means that the images played don't update quick enough for high motion video like action movies and sports, which is why it's blurry. Mine has a 3ms response time, by comparison.

Hope this helps, please rate me.

DVD'S will not play..


Sounds like the unit is bad, or set to the wrong Regional Code. Its not easy to set the regional code and it varies by model. You are better off buying a new DVD player given they can be found for under $30.

Can't receive proper dvd/vcr signal


Your Toshiba TV uses the American NTSC standard.

Your DVD/VCR uses the Australian PAL B/G standard.

Unfortunately the two are not compatible as they stand, but there may be an option in the DVD/VDR menu to force the output to NTSC. This varies from make to make.


Another option would be to modify your main DVD player to make it multi-region so it will play ALL of your DVDs. Some models can be modified with a simple handset code, some can be modified with a software update, and others need an internal modification.

Post your make and model, and I can advise you on modification.

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
