Question about Televison & Video
I have a Toshiba DVD model SD-6100KU. I can't seem to find an online manual for it (I didn't think it was that old!). It worked fine until we had a power outage and now I have gotten it to where I hear weak sound and the picture is blue with a "film strip" appearance that flips left to right across the screen. I have powered everything down (TV, VCR, and DVD player). The VCR works fine thru the TV. I have tried several different DVDs and all have failed to work in this Toshiba. I took the unit from its current location and moved it to a different TV and again could only get sound and no picture (just the blue, film-strip look that flits across the screen; I can barely make out shadows of actors in this blue screen).
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Your unit has it seems to have developed a video problem. it could be in the video switching IC or the video processor. Its going to need a trained technician, who knows how to use an ocilliscope to find the video problem.. Good Luck

Hi There is an I/P button on your player's remote control. Power your player on then press the I/P button on your remote control.

SOURCE: No power
It's very unlikely that you will be able to repair a unit with no power.
You can check the fuse, but if you're not into electronics, you will not know how to test the electronic components and explaining how to do so is beyond the scope of this website.
As these units are under $100, it is unlikely you will find a repair shop willing to repair it. Also, parts such as the transformer mentioned by buzzcasper are unlikely to be available unless you have a scrap unit to scavange from.

SOURCE: Can't get picture on TV.
If you were using RCA cables, you may have had them hooked up wrong. I know this may sound like an easy fix, but I still hook them up wrong from time to time. Especially if there are more than one set of RCA hook-ups on the back of the unit. If you were using a S-video cable you shouldn't have to use RCA cables, if you had both hooked up that could cause your DVD/VCR unit to not work properly and only get a partial feed to the TV. I hope this helps a little. Good luck.

If you have relocated then the region code may need to be changed. However using region 0 is most practical. Clean the optical head of the player with a CD/DVD cleaner too & see if it responds............sodeep
