Hello, I have the Toshiba HD-D1 (A1 clone) running at firmware 4.0. I haven't had any problems with it since I purchased it new a few years ago. My display is using the HDMI output going to a Benq 8720.
Last week I started receiving "HDMI errors" when trying to play a DVD. When I started digging into it, I found that even in the setup menu without a DVD in the drive, the HDMI output will flicker off for a split second about every 5 seconds. Plus, while I navigate around in the setup screens, the output becomes fuzzy for a split second and then clears up. I assume this is why I can no longer play any disks through my HDMI output. I have swapped HDMI cables and taken my monoprice HDMI switch device out of the equation and I still have the same problem.
What does this sound like? Could the HDMI port be going bad on my player? Or could it be something else?
I'm not sure it's worth (or even possible) to send into Toshiba for repair. I was thinking I might pick up an XA2 if I can find a good price on one....or what do you think about some of the new combo players like the LG BH200?
Any advice/thoughts would be appreciated.
