Video Game Console Repair Questions? Ask a Technician ASAP
Hello there and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I am an engineer with over 30 years of electrical and electronic training, repair and installation experience. I will try and answer your question accurately and precisely so that we can get you on your way.
I need to gather some more information from you in order to help.
Can you tell me the make and model of the CRTV please?
Ok, and you are connected to the Colorstream Component inputs?Do you get anything at all? A fuzzy pic or black and white etc?
That TV has a couple of sets of Component inputs. Have you tried them both?
Ok. Let me look into this. It may take me 10 mins or so.I'll be back.
Hi again. Unfortunately I have found no good answer for you. It sounds like the Toshiba just doesn't want to play nice with the converter. Can you tell me the model number of the PORTTA device please.
So you have tried two converters and neither works on the Toshiba?
Does this one have a selector switch for resolution?
Ok. Let me know.
The reviews on Amazon are not all good, many people have the same issue and it appears that Amazon no longer sells it directly as "While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page, it is not currently offered by Amazon.com because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it's described here".
I did see some discussion about how the signal is converted and how older TVs may not be able to decode it.I think you may be out of luck with this particular TV. I don't have any other suggestion unfortunately.
I didn't mark any of my responses as an answer so I receive nothing.That happens :)
Hi. I don't know what could be wrong. It seem to give a component signal that the TV can't read, everything else seem fine. Perhaps the TV can't read the type of synch the converter give (like doing a synch on green instead of the typical synch on luma). Why did you not get the 360 component cable instead of a converter?
I see, seem you have the "E" model then. Good HDMI converter can be pricy, here is one:
Probably indeed cheaped to swap it with someone for a Slim model (don't get the earlier model, they can die on you anytime).
