Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

I have an 11 year old Toshiba DVD player. The last 2 times I rented a disk I had problems. Everything seems to be fine through the previews. When the movie starts to play, the screen goes green. The audio is fine. The video is there, but everything is green. I try the DVD in another player and it worked fine. I tried it in my laptop and it worked fine. Has anyone had a sinillar problem as this? Is there a solution to this issue? Please let me know



Answers :

This is usually an issue with the component cables running to the TV. Remove the cables and retry with different component cables. If this doesn't fix the issue, its a problem with the DVD player itself.

As far as DVD players go, you've done quite well keeping yours going for 11 years. A cheap DVD player at the local big box electronics store here costs about $30, definitely not breaking the bank getting a new one.

I connected my laptop to my LG 50PQ1000, and then my Blu-ray player didn't work - no mater what I did, the problem was "invalid format". I tried everything, including putting it on another TV - there it worked just perfect, but on LG no. I changed the HDMI cables, I tried all possible resolutions, no way. I updated the player - the problem remained the same. Now in order to watch DVD and BRD I put back the old cables, not HDMI cable.

I just got a new player. Worked perfectly in the shop but brought it home and have a problem. After plugging it in it plays the DVD fine EXCEPT, the picture is in black and white. This was not a problem with my old player. I tried 8 DVD's with the same results. The color is great on the TV. I tried three different lines with the same results.


Select the type of video your TV requires within the menu of the DVD player and match it.If the TV requires CVBS input and you are supplying S-Video, then you will get a monochrome picture because the chroma content is not being used.Hope ... Flat Panel Televisions

We purchased our DVD player about 3 mths ago and everything was fine, then about a week ago after the kids were watching TV and went to record a show the DVD turned itself off. Now when we turn on our DVD player we get the welcome note on the display window and as soon as the welcome has disappeared the whole thing automatically switches itself off. We cannot do a thing with it! I have even tried unplugging it overnight and then connecting in the morning and nothing changed. Any ideas


If you only purchased it 3 months ago it should still be under warranty.\015\012\015\012Just bring it back to your place of purchase for a refund or exchange. ... Flat Panel Televisions

I have a JVC RM-C60 TV. I'm trying to tune it in to my Virgin Media HD box using a standard SCART lead but having no joy. It's completely failing to find the cable channel (or any other for that matter). TV worked fine when connected to a Sky+ box the same way, and cable is fine since it works when hooked up to the DVD player. Any ideas?


Tuning of the TV not required when using scart lead, just select external input that the scartis connected to, ie AV1,AV2 (EXT1,EXT2) etc. The problem is possibly to do with the Virgin box, it may be set to HDMI out in which case it will not output a ... JVC Standard (CRT) Televisions

Hi I read an answer about unlocking a DVD player HCT 501U to make it regional free. Something makes me think there is something more. The answered was to a guy who bought the dvd player in USA and tried to watch european dvd's. Conclusion was that this dvd player cannot be unlocked because it is locked at hardware level. However, i bought it in USA and I started using it with european dvd, and it is working well. Now that I tried to use it with US dvd's it says "wrong code". Is this compatible
