    My TOSHIBA DVD player, Model SD-K760SU, worked for 18 months; then rejected ALL DVD's and CD's with a "NO" response. The cable is firmly in place but kinked 90 degrees in one location. Any suggestions? homefixer

If this is after inserting a DVD you may have an unreadable disc or a region code conflict. Please explain a little more. Does it play ANY DVD? Probs on Just this DVD? MM85

    I had a similar problem on my Sony Burner. All I did was remove the covers and made sure the lens could "home" properly. Basically, gently moved it in and out on the track. Haven't had a problem since.

Denon Dvd-2910 only displays black and white on the tv screen


this is not a serious problem. It just has to do with visual compatibility.

Change the DVD display to Pal or NTSC and set that of the TV to Auto or pal.

You might find the PAL/NTSC on the DVD remote, or on the button of the DVD. If it is not there, then Check display settings of the DVD.

As for the TV, Change to Auto or Pal from display settings.

Take care.

Sony dvp-ns425 player has the word VIDEO in upper right corner appear and disappear every 20 seconds or so. It is in the same green block letters as all the menu/control titles so I know it is from the dvd...

That word Video in green color could be TV's on-screen display as DVP-NS425 has another kind of on-screen display that has track info, time info etc in display.
Please press Display on TV remote to turn off that green color Video on-screen display at top right corner.

How to eliminate error screen:"your tv does not allow display of this program through the dvi input source. please chose another tv input source."

"cable box to tv is hdmi cable"

Everything I've read on the web says cable box to tv connection must also use component (rgb) cables. The error is coming from the cable box (STB). All the Scientific Atlanta (SA) cable boxes seem have this Digital Rights Management (DRM) bug and the only way to be totally rid of the error is to replace the digital connection from box to the TV with an analog connection.

With the power to both devices off, plug one end of HDMI into the DVD player output and the other to one of the two HDMI ports on the back of the TV or the port on the side. Power the TV on first then the DVD player. Now you will need to use the input button on the remote to find the correct HDMI port you plugged into on the set. When you find the correct input the screen displayed will have the screen that is displayed when there is no dvd in the player- that is unless you have one in at the time.
Hope this helps you out.

Coby dvd-224 "loading"

If everything else seems to be functioning, try using your remote to reset the TV. There is a setting to switch the TV from being a TV to being a screen, or monitor, for the DVD player. What the button is labeled varies by manufacturer. It may be: TV/DVD, input, source, display, or something else. Display, for instance, displays the choice on the screen. Highlight and select DVD or perhaps the brand name of the DVD player.
This compliments of the Vancouver Radio Shack super geeks.
