Question about Toshiba 32AF41 32" TV
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
