Hello, Are you using the Red,White and Yellow "DVD/VCR" Outs on the Toshiba? Or are you using the Red,Blue,Green "Component" Outs on the player to connect to the TV?

I have tried both the red and the white also the blue green and red if I remove the green thereis no signal from the tv
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

Okay you're using the wrong jacks to get the VCR portion to play through the TV.

You need to use specifically the ones that are labeled:

"DVD/VCR OUT"

They are YELLOW, RED AND WHITE.

If you are still stuck, then reply back with the model number off of the back of the TV and I can help further.

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

Only the DVD will play using the Red,Green and Blue jacks- they are only designed for the DVD.

The Yellow "Video Out" is for the VCR AND DVD to playback from. The VCR cannot play using the Red,Green and Yellow.

Match the Yellow, Red and White to the same colored jacks on your TV and then select "Video" on the TV instead of "Component".

Again not all TV's have the yellow jack, so if you don't see it, then I will need the model number off of the back of your TV to tell you what to do next.

I NEED the model number off of the back of the TV.

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

The ONLY way to get the VCR to play on the TV is connecting a Yellow directly to the TV- there's no way around that, so to get you a solution I need the model number of your TV. It's located on a sticker on the back.

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

Facing the back of the set- the yellow, red and white will be on the right hand side. You have to look at the TV from the side to see them. Do you see them?

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago

Plug the yellow cable into the "Green" jack and then the red and whites into the red and white on the TV.

Connect the other ends of those cables to the DVD/VCR Audio Out, and Video Out.

Then use the "Video" or "Composite" Input setting on the TV and please let me know what happens.
