Question about Toshiba 32AF41 32" TV

Bad component input?

Hi- I've tried connecting my hdtv tuner and my dvd player to my tv with component cables, but I only get a weird blue and black screen. (The two devices work fine on my tv with s-video cables.) Is there something I can do to fix this? Or is it simply that the component inputs are now bad?

Your cables could be defective or a bad solder at the input connectors.Make sure the colours of the cables are matching with that of the tuner and dvd.

My DVD is playing my videos in black and white .. It's a Panasonic tv model is tc-L32c5


follow the steps. God bless you
Insert a DVD lens-cleaning disc into your player and press "Play" to clean the DVD laser, eliminating picture problems due to read errors. Do not use a CD cleaning disc as the brushes on these discs can damage your laser.

  • 2 Wipe your DVDs clean of all visible marks and dirt using a lint-free cleaning cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol or glass cleaner. This further fixes read errors which can damage the quality of picture and sound.


  • 3 Disconnect your DVD player from the TV or receiver you have it connected to. Reconnect the DVD player directly to the "AV" or "Video In" port of your television, firmly pushing the plug into place, to eliminate possible noise from the receiver and ensure a clean connection.
  • 4 Connect your DVD player using an S-Video, component video or HDMI cable. Standard yellow/red/white RCA connectors cannot carry the high-quality signal that DVD discs are capable of transmitting, and will display a particularly poor picture on flat-screen high definition televisions. Use an HDMI cable, if your television and player support it, or a red/blue/green component video cable.
  • 5 Press "Setup" on your DVD remote and enter "Picture Settings." Make sure your DVD player is set to display images in the correct screen format ("Widescreen" or "16 x 9" for HDTV sets, "Standard" or "4 x 3" for older square sets) and scan mode. If you are using a DVD player that supports "Progressive Scan" on an HDTV or flat-screen set, activate this setting; for older sets, choose "Interlace" if given a choice.

    How to Connect an HDTV to a DVD Player

    Hooking up a DVD player to an HDTV, or high-definition TV, is just as simple as hooking one up to a standard-definition TV. While a regular DVD player may be hooked up to an HDTV, it does not necessarily mean it will have high-definition quality picture. Unless a Blu-Ray player is connected to the HDTV, only a standard-definition picture will be shown.


    Things You'll Need:

    * Component cables

    Instructions


    Turn off and unplug the HDTV set and the DVD player before attempting to connect component cables to them.


    Match the red, green and blue colored cables to each of the color-coded counterparts on the back of the DVD player. Be sure the cables are being plugged into the TV-out section of the DVD player.


    Plug the other end of the color coded cables into the HDTV set. There should only be a red, green and blue cable being plugged into the TV. It does not matter what input these cables are plugged in, but keep track of which particular one it is. Most HDTV sets will have more than one A/V input, which is why it's important to take note of where the component cables are located.

    Power on the DVD player and the HDTV set. If not already plugged in, ensure both of these are properly plugged into an outlet.


    Press the "Source" button using the HDTV remote and locate the input channel that has the component cables plugged into it. The HDTV set should now show the DVD player logo or an introduction to the DVD.


    Do not purchase HDTV component cables to hook up a regular DVD player to an HDTV set. Unless using a Blu-Ray player, only standard component cables are required. HDTV sets consume a lot of energy and should be plugged directly into an electrical outlet rather than a power strip.

    Turn off all electronics before connecting and disconnecting wires to reduce the chances of getting an electrical shock.


    Ensure that you have the proper cables to hook up your new HDTV. Take inventory to see if you have an ANT-IN, DVI-D/HDCP IN, Video In or Component Video In cables. The placement of these plugs will be indicated in your user book.


    Begin by connecting the coaxial cable to the back of your cable box. Run a video cable to the TV; an S-Video cable may be used as well if you do not have any other video cables.


    Locate a digital audio cable, or analog audio cable. Connect the audio cable to the TV from the cable box.


    Now connect all other components including DVDs, VCRs or LaserDISC players. Try using all digital audio and digital video connections for the most complete HDTV experience.


    Use a splitter to connect multiple components such as cable box to DVD or TV to VCR to avoid running out of chords. Calibrate your HDTV before enjoying fully, adjust the brightness, contrast and color settings.

    Tips & Warnings

    You can utilize a program to help with proper calibration of your HDTV system; these instructional videos can be purchased from many electronic stores.

    You can opt for the store from which you purchased your HDTV to hook up the system for you. They will often calibrate the system for you as well.


    Hope it helped.

    Have a nice day...

    Why original DVDs appear in Black and white only when palyed on the Sony DVP-NS57P player?


    Usually, when you get a black and white version of the film, either the cable connection is messed up or the dvd signal and the tuner are mismatched (say NTSC TV getting a PAL signal from the dvd).

    The cable mismatch would be connecting composite video output (using the AV cable that came with the unit) to one of the three video jacks of the component video input on the TV. The obvious first thing to check is that the cables are good and in the correct configuration (yellow to yellow for composite or red, green and blue to red, green and blue). Try a new cable in case there is a damaged cable, particularly with a component video cable.

    The tuner mismatch is more common with the handheld dvd players.

    I hope this helps.

    I have a memorex dvd player and a dynex 32" lcd hdtv. I have all the cord correctly in the component plugs but the picture is black and white and there is no sound.


    HI,
    i think ur component video connection may inter changed. check it. are u connected red to red, green to green an blue to blue. if interchanged the picture will be black and white. also check the video system of ur tv and dvd.
    about audio. for that u need a stereo rca chord. connect the audio output of ur dvd to the component audio input of ur tv. if u have already connected the audio cable , check the audio setup of ur dvd. there is selection for pcm audio select it and then check again.
    ok

    Hook up of dvd to tv


    hey I think you need to use component cables blue green red from the player to the tv, make sure the blue green red ports are also on the tv, note: red yellow white composite cable will not interchange with blue green red component cable or connection.

    simplify- blue green red= component
    red white yellow=composite

    *wires must match colors on both tv and player inputs.

    then set your input on your tv to where you conected the cable.

    I am trying to connect an akai dvd player to directv, please help


    ruettab,

    good day. to connect your any DVD player to any TV screen always remember this color code

    from DVD back part:

    yellow = video out

    red/blue/green( in a row) = component video out ( this can only be used for screen with component video inputs)


    Black = digital audio ( rarely use unless)
    Red and white (in a row) = Audio output (left and right audio)


    where to connect from TV screen.

    Locate where A/V INPUTS (audio/video socket) from your TV screen, you can see it either at the BACK/SIDE or somtimes in FRONT of TV screen , having marked as "AV1"AV2"AV3' .

    Once you found TV input, you must first have RCA cable (color code cable to connect player to screen) then connect the RCA cable at the back of your DVD player, simply follow color code

    RCA yellow marked cable = DVD yellow socket
    RCA RED and WHITE marked cable = DVD RED and white socket (second row for your player)

    then connect the other end of the RCA cable to TV screen, first select which input where you gonna place the DVD player ( either AV1, Av2 or Av3 if do have multiple inputs)

    once decided which INPUT to connect the player.
    ex. if you select AV1 as input there would be 3socket on its row (yellow/red/white)

    now connect the other end of RCA cable to the screen by following the same color code:

    RCA yellow cable = TV screen A/V1 input yellow socket
    RCA RED and White = TV screen A/V1 input red and white socket.

    cheers,

    DVD plays only in black and white


    Hey, I had this problem on Thanksgiving Day, trying to watch a dvd on my mother's HDTV. You should be able to hook up most standard dvd players to hdtvs. First you have 3 cords, mine were red, yellow, and white. The connections go as follows:

    HDTV:
    Audio| Component. The white cord should be in a white audio slot. The yellow cord should be in a yellow component slot (video) and the red cord should be in a red video component slot labeled Pr/Cr. Make sure you match the component numbers. For instance, if you want to use component one, then hook all of the cords into the slots for component one. Most hdtvs have multiple component hookups ( think multiple "channels" for your game system, dvd player, etc) so it's important that the corresponding cords go to the correct component slots.

    DVD:
    Match the yellow and white cords to the appropriately colored slots. The red cord should go into the slot labeled component video out Cr/Pr. Not the red audio out. This worked for me. Hope this helps.
