Toshiba 32AV500U HDMI issues

I believe my Toshiba 32AV500U has an HDMI problem. When the Insignia Blue Ray player is connected but powered off the TV has a black screen and no audio when trying to watch Cable TV. If I remove the HDMI cable or turn the player back on, the TV behaves normally.

A PS3 connected via HDMI will not display any picture at all. When the PS3 is connected and powered on the Toshiba will not display cable TV. If the PS3 is powered off the TV functions normally.

The Insignia and PS3 work normally on another HDMI compliant TV and I've tried several HDMI cables.

Through trial and error I believe I've isolated the problem being with the television. Is there a fix for this or will I have to return the TV?

Thanks

The Toshiba 32AV500U cannot display 1080p. Hook up your PS3 to your computer monitor, provided that it can display 1080p, or some other TV that can, then change your Video Output settings under Settings> Display Settings and uncheck 1080p, which will allow the PS3 to display in 1080i. Once you do that, then hook up the Toshiba via HDMI and it will work with no problem.

How can I connect my blue ray from wired over to wifi connection?


Per Mfg website the NS-BRDVD does not have any network connections so you cannot use it on a wired or wireless network. You can only cable it with an HDMI to the TV.

LG blue ray won't play sound from RCA sound bar. HDMI cable is hooked into HDMi slot on TV


the details you provided were very vague, however from my experience when a device is connected to another device via and audio capable hdmi cable, that device renders it audio output to the device its connected to and normally turn off all other audio outputs beside optical- I would assume there is an option in the blue ray player to turn off hdmi audio, which will in turn activate other audio outputs- you may also look for audio out port on your tv, it is ideal to connect the sound bar directly to the tv set audio out ports. To sum this up,
if you plan to use your player via hdmi cable you need to turn off hdmi audio output on the blue ray player and the plug an audio cable from your blue-ray player to your sound bar
you may also as i said connect your sound bar directly to your tv, the issue is most tv sets now a days do not have an audio out port, if you do then everything you play thru your tv will have audio via sound bar
there are several way to go here but unless your sound bar has hdmi av switching capabilities (im sure not) this is one of the most simple--Good Luck.

I need help hooking up my system from cable box to old toshiba 52 inch tv does not have hdmi on tv red, green , blue wires i also bought today a sony blue ray player speakers are not working ...


Hello,

Please indicate the brand and model of your receiver, BD player and your speakers. Basically, you just need to connect the cable box and blue ray player to the receiver. The 5.1 speakers should be connected to the blue ray player, then another set of cables from your BD player to your TV. When you want to use the speakers while watching TV, you need to turn on the blue ray player too.

I continue to have to switch my HDMI cable between 2 ports on my TV because initally there is "no signal". But when I switch ports I get a signal. So is this a HDMI cable issue, port issue or my Insignia...


My best bet would be a port issue - see if another device will work plugged into that port. (Some HDTVs have a HDMI port strictly for Service and nothing else but a Technicians specified cable will work in this port, look at the Manual) Check to see if your TV is set to the same port as your connecting to. One will be HDMI 1, next HDMI 2 and so on, the input button on remote should switch from port to port, make sure port setting on TV is same as #port your connected to.

42LG50 TV - Intermittant sound problems with blu-ray HDMI input


You say this doesn't happen on regular cable or when playing a regular DVD. Hmm. Is this Blu-Ray player connected by simplink? HDMI is a bi-directional format cable, so  there are cases in setups where your tv can send commands to your blu-ray player and vice versa. It could be a problem with your blu-ray player that it is sending for some odd reason a mute command to your tv. Or is processing a command that your TV interprets to be a mute command when playing blu-rays. Because if it was the TV itself chances are you'd see this when watching a normal DVD or on cable as well. Since you say you're not, it leads me to believe the issue lies with the blu-ray player itself.

Toshiba HDTV + SONY PLAYSTATION 3 + SONY Home Theatre DAVHDX265


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!
