My mother-in-law has a Polaroid HDTV woth built-in


I can help you with your Polaroid HDTV.

If the DVD doesn't start when you place it in the player, look for the Play button on the remote control. There may be a TV/DVD switch on the remote that would need to be changed to DVD.

If the manual below doesn't match your TV, please post the model number of your Polaroid HDTV/DVD combo for more specific help.

I hope that helps.

Tv is showing 480p and we want it at 1080p on our new Toshiba 40XV648 40-Inch 1080p 120Hz HD LCD TV Cinema Series.


After searching the owners manual I find that there is nothing mentioned about the screen resolution i.e. 480p to 1080p.

This set is capable of your desired resolution and as far as I can tell it auto selects because it senses the input video and decides which is the best setting for that source.

It's important to understand that you need 1080p video to use it at it's full capabilities. It won't give you a 1080p resolution from a VCR or a standard DVD player. You need a DVD player that is capable of producing a 1080p encoded video. Some satellite receivers are capable of that but you need to make sure you know what resolution that you are sending to the television.

Local TV stations won't usually broadcast HD at 1080p. Your best bet is to use a DVD player that is capable of that high resolution for your best picture.

Please note that what it says in the owners manual about "Resolution" has nothing to do with the 480p, 720p or 1080p signals, your set selects that automatically it will start by selecting the 1080p then goes to 720p then 420p it's dependent on the video you send to the set.

Please note the "resolution" function is actually like a "sharpness" control.

Your video input (tuner, VCR, DVD, games and etc.) is likely your problem.

Try pressing the HDMI button on the remote control to toggle the display output to something that your television will recognize. You can also try The progressive button and see if that helps. I am assuming you model is the XD-E500 model.

As a home theatre sales person, i can say that i have had my fare share of dealings with new TV manufacturers. Although sometimes what i am about to say sounds a little abrasive, it seems as though youve fallen victim to the newly developing 'disposibility' trending in electronics manufacturing. You may have already tried using the on board controls, and if that works, try an advanced learning remote control to regain control of the functions. if the onboard controls arent working either, you could try to send it in for repair if its under warrenty, or look at buying a new flat panel. The avg repair cost on an lcd is 300-600 for parts and labor, there are many 1080p 40-42 in the 600-800 range.

No Disk


When I try to play a DVD, operation seems normal, the unit makes a slight noise like the disk is rotating and "Loading" is displayed. Then after about 30 seconds the message "No Disk" is displayed. Then just the Polaroid screen is displayed. I have lost the remote control but surely the unit will play using the front panel buttons. One thing, only the remote is named as having a Setup Button in the manual but the unit has no such button.

Setting ***.


You will have to change the dvd player resolution to 1080i (or change resolution for each individual disc), because:
a) there is no way to change the resolution manually on this television
b) this TV maxes at 1080i, hence negating most of the utility of using an hdmi cable (Of course, hdmi cables are much easier to hook up, less messy than component cables; so all is not lost)

How to get 1080 resolution from my plasmaI have the 6842 pe EDTV


DVDs are 480p
HD-DVD or Blu-Ray DVD is 720p or 1080i or 1080p

you cannot increase resolution, if you want to play a 480p/i video on a 1080p/i or 720p screen, you are merely stretching the picture.

If there is any kind of box that tells you it can convert 480i/p to 1080p/i or 720p(high definition) it is simply stretching the picture.

you can convert 1080p/i or 720p(high definition) to 480i/p as you are taking out information from the video to make it smaller.
